If you’ve been around green beauty long enough then you’ve heard of RMS beauty. This was one of the first brands I tried when switching over from conventional to clean beauty. That was 6 years ago and my how things have changed! Back then RMS had just a handful of products, now they have a whole makeup line. Well that makeup line just got bigger, because they just came out with some amazing eyeshadows. Yes, you heard me right-shadows finally! And with 18 beautiful colors to choose from, there’s something for everyone! You could say I was just a little excited to finally try these babies out. Marissa from Beau Tea Bar was kind enough to send me 4 different colors from the line, plus the shadow brush RMS came out with for them. Beau Tea Bar is the ultimate green beauty destination! Check out all their green goodies!
Here are the colors I sampled:
- SB-43 Sunset Beach/Crushed Pearl Shade
- GR-13 Garden Rose/Rosy Brown Shade
- TM-24 Twilight Madness/Warm Charcoal Shade
- TR-94 Tobacco Road/Olive Green Shade with a Hint of Shimmer
First I have to dish on the ingredients. These are unlike any eyeshadow I’ve tried. They actually feel somewhat moist because of ingredients like jojoba oil, and buriti oil-so silky and smooth. Most shadows are baked but RMS shadows are pressed, keeping the integrity of the raw material intact. They all have a bit of a glow to them- not a sparkly, 13 year old glow but the luminescent glow we all crave. The pigment is not heavy but very light and buildable. I love that they’re pressed shadows! It’s hard to always find pressed shadows in the green beauty world. So much easier to work with and there’s no mess. RMS has a line of cream shadows which are beautiful but on my oily lids they slide off within the hour. These have been just the opposite. They look like a cream but act like a powder. Since my eyelids are oily, I apply a mineral powder, then apply my eyelid primer by The All Natural Face. Once my eyelid is prepped I then apply the shadows. This is where their vegan shadow brush comes in. It’s the perfect compact brush for a flawless shadow application. It picks up the pigment just right. I love that you can use it wet or dry, depending on the look you want.

Oh and the staying power is top notch. I applied them in the morning and they were still there by midday. I’m just crazy for all the colors too! They split the shadows into 6 color categories-grey/black, yellows/golds, beiges/tans, greens/browns, pinks, and purples/burgundies. Each one unique. Can’t wait to try more. I find a lot of people are afraid to try shadow-fearing they might mess up. If so these are the perfect shadows for you! So easy to use- I promise you won’t mess up. Being that they’re so buildable it makes it virtually impossible to pile on too much color. I love that you can use the colors so easily together-they blend so well. I used the Sunset Beach on my brown bone with every color-such a great everyday color. Garden Rose was so pretty on it’s own and also blended in with the Tobacco Road. I also created the perfect subtle smokey eye with Twilight Madness.
