RMS Swift Shadows

12 Jan 2017

I recently picked up three of the new RMS Swift Shadows from Love Lula and thought I'd share some swatches and make-up looks as there's quite a lot of different shades...

RMS have their cream shadow "polishes" but up until now there were no powder eyeshadows. As someone with oily eyelids where normal shadows don't even tend to stay put, cream shadows are a no-go so I was happy to hear they'd released some powder shadows with the same finish the polishes are known for. They have released a range of 18 eyeshadows in 6 different shades (which each come in three variations)...confusing, I know!
The six shade ranges available are; Enchanted Moonlight (purples/burgundies), Garden Rose (pinks), Sunset Beach (yellows/golds), Tempting Touch (beiges/tans), Tobacco Road (greens/browns), Twilight Madness (grey/black).

I picked up Garden Rose GR-19, Sunset Beach SB-43 and Tempting Touch TT-76.

Tempting Touch TT-76 is a gorgeous brown shade that I've been enjoying the most. I love using this all over my lid with a bit of the Pacifica Black Liner for a subtle smoky eye. It has a lovely shimmer but it's not glittery or too much, just a hint of sparkle. This one is definitely my favourite out of the three & it makes me want to try more from the Tempting Touch range.
Garden Rose GR-19 is a gorgeous deep pink shade that looks pretty as a wash of colour all over the lid. Pinks/reds are quite on trend for eyeshadow and I was a bit nervous in case I didn't like this however I think it's really pretty.
Sunset Beach SB-43 is a light cream shade that's perfect as an inner corner shade when doing a smoky eye. It's a lovely iridescent colour and it instantly brightens up the eye area. It's a bit too light for me to use all over my lids though so I just stick to using it more as a highlighter.

I've swatched them below so you can see the shades and also included a photo of me wearing the Tempting Touch shadow too. I used a bit of balm on my hand to intensify the colour on my hand, and you can also use these wet so if you apply the shadow to a damp make-up brush, this will intensify the shade.

I'm really impressed with these eyeshadows, especially Tempting Touch. I find that they all do stay-put for a decent time as well with minimal creasing.
 
What's your favourite shade?
