RMS Beauty Lip Shine in Sublime and Lip2Cheek in Demure | Review and Swatches

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Part of my colossal Sephora haul, which was comprised almost entirely of green beauty finds, was a nice selection of products from RMS Beauty. I selected the RMS Lip Shine in Sublime and RMS Lip2Cheek in Demure because they were so beautiful that I simply could not resist them, and If you have yet to indulge in RMS Beauty, then these are definitely worthy contenders for your consideration. They are both housed in sturdy little glass pots with chic metal lids that fit snuggly. The aesthetic of the packaging is an exercise in elegant minimalism, and these little pots are small enough to carry in your pocket or handbag.

Their healthy makeup lacks harsh chemical ingredients, and they actually nourish the skin. You can wear all of their products with confidence, and you don't have to be concerned about ingesting multi-syllabic chemicals when wearing any of their lip products.
About RMS Beauty,

RMS Beauty is dedicated to transforming the way women use makeup, and it's about more than simply using organic ingredients. In fact, that's only the first step in creating a product that's not only non-toxic, but that actually heals and nourishes skin. It all comes down to chemistry: when a raw material is processed for use in cosmetics or other beauty products, it typically undergoes a lengthy process...the majority of ingredients used for natural cosmetics are refined, bleached, deodorized, clarified, fractionated and heated to high temperatures. But this means they are not pure natural ingredients anymore – they are now equivalent to man-made chemicals.Complicating matters more, the processes strip away almost all of the nutrients that make natural ingredients beneficial to skin. Today's cosmetics and skincare lines are full of mono-nutrients and mono-nutrients do not interact. Only real nutrients interact… anything alive interacts.

This is where RMS Beauty breaks away from the pack of natural cosmetics. RMS Beauty products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin. In their purest form, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and their healing properties remain fully intact, encouraging amazing potential for anti-aging effects. RMS Beauty has also taken extreme care in the use of minimal heat in the manufacturing process of this product in order to keep all nutrients and healing properties alive. All RMS Beauty products are free of harmful chemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic vitamins, and genetically altered ingredients (GMO) etc. RMS Beauty is full of healing nutrients – nutrients that work synergistically with the skin, and are in harmony with nature and our environment.
RMS Lip Shine in Sublime ($25.00 for 0.20 oz. from RMS, Sephora, Credo Beauty, Beautyhabit, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Cult Beauty, The Detox Market, Skin Store, Shen Beauty, Net-A-Porter, Sephora in JCPenney, Anthropologie, Dermstore and Birchbox): RMS Lip Shine in Sublime is a gorgeous light to mid-tone blue-based pink shade that offers a lovely light wash of luminous color with a gorgeous sheen. It is thoroughly non-sticky, has the perfect amount of cushion that lends itself to exceedingly comfortable wear, and it is quite moisturizing. It offers all of the perks of a beautiful lip gloss with all of the benefits of a high quality nourishing lip balm that just so happens to be loaded with skincare ingredients. It has no discernible fragrance, but only the very faintest aroma from the natural ingredients.

According to RMS Beauty,

Purity made simple. A touch of shine on your lips is now both sensuous and nourishing. This colorful, fountain of youth for lips contains buriti oil, which is rich in nutrients. Due to its natural fatty acids, vitamin A and C properties, these lip shines provide extracellular antioxidant protection. Combined with nourishing organic oils and pure mineral pigments, this exotic formula is highly emollient and visibly hydrating. These are sure to become your newest healthy addiction.

Available Shades:
Sublime (Shown): A bright and modern fuchsia pink shade.
Content: A richly-pigmented classic berry red.
Sacred: The most perfect innocent red with a gentle hint of pink.
Bloom: A sheer, youthful petal-pink with the most subtle hint of shimmer.
Moment: A neutral caramel brown, created for Gisele. Great for neutralizing the pink in the lips.
Honest: A nude, dusty rose.
Trance: A tawny plum brown with shine.

Directions: Add a touch of this light, non-sticky shine to the lips alone or on top of any rms beauty lip2Cheek colors for added sheen. Gorgeous on the cheeks when used as a light blush.

Ingredients: *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Centella Asiatica Extract, *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Non-GMO, may contain: [+/- Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891 and Mica CI 77019]. *CERTIFIED ORGANIC
RMS Lip2Cheek in Demure ($36.00 for 0.17 oz. from RMS Amazon Store, Sephora, Credo Beauty, Beautyhabit, Nordstrom, Violet Grey, Bloomingdale's, b-glowingCult Beauty, The Detox Market, Skin Store, Shen Beauty, AnthropologieNet-A-Porter, Bluemercury, Sephora in JCPenney, MadewellDermstore and Birchbox): RMS Lip2Cheek in Demure is a richly pigmented mid-tone neutral nude-leaning pink that can be used on the lips and cheeks. The pigmentation is quite concentrated with this formula, and a little goes a long way, therefore I would recommend starting with a small amount and building up if more opacity is desired. It is non-sticky, offers a lovely sheen and it neither feathers nor bleeds on the lips, and it doesn't settle into fine line or pores on the cheeks. There is no discernible fragrance, but like the RMS Lip Shine one can detect the faintest aroma from the natural ingredients.

According to RMS Beauty,

Our lip2cheek is a unique formula that combines hydration and protection with abundant mineral color for a beautiful, natural finish on both lips and cheeks.

The lip2cheek colors are the result of over 20 years experience applying makeup to some of the world's most beautiful faces. Created with nourishing organic ingredients, each unique shade can vary from a youthful sheer to a more densely colored stain.

Available Shades:
Smile: A modern sheer coral/pink with a slight 50's feel.
Promise: A warm salmon-pink with a very subtle golden shimmer.
Spell: a modern nude dusty rose.
Modest: A fresh, rich berry pink color.
Illusive: A matte burnt rose hue with a hint of plum.
Demure (Shown): A soft pink rose with a hint of mauve that makes a statement.
Diabolique: A rich burgundy coloring and intense depth make this sultry shade a must for anyone feeling adventurous.
Beloved: A true red with just a hint of poppy to suit all skin tones. Gives cheeks a natural rosiness and stains lips with a desirable youthfulness.
Paradise: A Tropical muted coral with red undertones.

Directions: Apply sparingly with fingers or brush. Repeat application for a more intense color on lips or cheeks. For more shimmer or a slightly softer color, apply the living luminizer over any lip2cheek color. For best results on particularly dry lips, apply a light layer of the lip & skin balm before the lip2cheek. This product can also be used as an eye shadow but may not be suitable for all skin types as they will cause creasing in most cases due to the moisturizing oils.

Ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax) (Cire d’abeille), *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, **Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, *Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Tocopherol(non-GMO), Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Propolis Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract , *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, May Contain: [+/-] Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica *CERTIFIED ORGANIC **WILDCRAFTED

Overall Assessment: I love both of these, and am already plotting my next purchase!

  1. Demure looks absolutely beautiful! I like cream blushes for my older skin.

    1. It's perfect on the lips and the cheeks! The color is so flattering, and would be perfectly suited to your complexion, Cindy.

  2. These colors are so me. I have longish nails though so the pots don't always work for me. They used to sell samples on their website, I wonder if they still do.

    1. They really are so you, Marcia! You would probably want to use a lip brush because of your beautiful nails!

  3. Colossal haul, I can't wait to see your other purchase! I like some RMS products, esp the un-powder. I will consider these beauties next

    1. I made three separate purchases, and each one was pretty big! I just went for it!

  4. I haven’t seen this brand before. My local Sephora is a small one so I missed out on these beauties. I can definitely see why you were drawn to them. They look like Cali in a little jar! And Helen, I hope you are safe from the terrible fires.

    1. It's a really great green beauty brand that is definitely worth trying, Allison! The fire is far enough away from my house, but the air quality is poor. My commute to work, on the other hand, is absolutely impacted by the multiple fires! Pretty scary, and the draught has made it all the worse!

  5. I normally stay away from this type of product but my skin has been so dry lately - I may need it! The colors are perfect.

    1. The colors are perfect, and the consistency and quality is excellent! I think that you would like them!
