An evening with RMK

Long time no see. I started a new job a couple of months ago and unfortunately that meant that blogging had to take a back seat on my priority list. Luckily, I managed to squeeze in a sneaky bloggers event with RMK in Selfridges Birmingham a few weeks ago. 

If the festive season means one thing to me, then it's CHRISTMAS COLLECTIONS and the RMK Christmas in Manhattan collection is an absolute beauty! Before we even go into what's included, let's talk about price because this floored me. Collection are usually so bloomin' overpriced that it can sometimes put me off. However, this kit gives you so much for your money. At £49, you are getting a huge discount on what the items would cost if purchased seperately. 

Let's get down to the nitty gritty!

The two items that sealed the deal for me were the eyeshadow quad and the blusher duo. Both are very glittery for my taste, but hey- we are in the festive season after all! Plus, once you've used the blushers a couple of times, the glitter is pretty much non-existent and you're left with a really nice satin finish.  The quad is really quite special, they are all gorgeous shades but the one on the top right is pure magic. It turns any boring old eyeshadow into a really interesting duo-chrome kinda effect. The bottom left shade is basically me in an eyeshadow. You know I love a good bronze! I am so impressed the quality of them and the blendability is up there with some of the best.

Now lets talk about the not so good. The lipgloss. So me and glosses aren't exactly the best of friends and this one certainly didn't convert me. The amount of glitter in it makes it actually quite uncomfortable to wear. So yeah, not a fan. Also, the bag? I just don't get it.

And the nail polish? I hear you say. It's ok.

Overall, I'm quite impressed with the collection. The eyeshadows and blushers make for a really good launch for RMK, I just wish that I liked the rest of it just as much.

I can't seem to find it online, but I have seen that it's still in store at Selfridges. We also got to play with a few items from their permanent makeup and skincare line... and it's love. I definitely plan on investing in a few more products!
