If time is money then this organic beauty brand is gold: RMS. The packed-into-pots peeps of color, coverage, highlighter and help-make-me-look-alive-pigment is a godsend for anyone who uses her finger tips as makeup brushes and relies on reflective services during the daily commute as opposed to steady, proper mirrors.
Our editor-at-large, Verena, was the pied piper who led me into the clean, no fuss world of RMS. I sit next to her and every day that she comes in she’s all…perfect looking. Fresh faced and dewy (but not greasy) with a flushed pink color on her cheeks and lips. I never questioned it because what do you say to someone who is eternally dewy?? What’s your favorite wildflower field to wake up at dawn in?
And then one day after work, toward the tail end of a meeting over drinks with Leandra, she pulled out a pot, pressed her finger to it, tapped the product on her lips then rubbed the excess into her cheeks. THAT WAS THE COLOR. Then she took another pot out, pressed her finger into it, glided said finger from under-brow-arch to the top of her cheek bone and…oh my god. The code was cracked.
So now RMS is my new obsession thanks to her. Each of their products are quick, hard-to-mess up beauty enhancers that are the answer to those mornings where you wake up like AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and those nights when you have to meet people post-office and you’re like, “Fuck.” They’ll save your face and that expensive cursing habit.
Told you this brand was gold.
