If you've seen my recent posts you would know that I've become a huge fan of a highlighted and dewy makeup look which I've been achieving with the gorgeous RMS Beauty Cream Eyeshadow in Lunar.
I purchased this as an alternative to the RMS Living Luminizer which is the highlighter that every beauty blogger and their Mums talk about. The Living Luminizer is £30 and is a white pearly colour whereas the Eyeshadow in Lunar is £19 and has a very similar colour with slightly more golden colour to it. On the Naturisimo website they are both described as creamy pearl shimmers.
I purchased Lunar for the sole reason of using it as a highlight as it looked so similar to the Living Luminizer and was £11 cheaper - which is always a plus! The slightly more golden tone of the eyeshadow makes it much more suitable for my skin tone as I find that pearly white highlights don't blend into my skin and stand out more than I'd like
As a highlight Lunar works amazingly as its extremely creamy and blends into the skin beautifully, when applied it it seems to disappear into the skin and can look though there is nothing there but when the light catches your face it gives a gorgeous sheen. The highlight shows up particularly well in flash photography so its perfect for nights out.
I have also tried to use this product as a cream eyeshadow, as it was intended, but I find that it is far too creamy and oily on my lids. Within minutes I found that it creased and faded on my lids which is strange as my lids aren't oily. However, this does work well as a tear duct highlight but it isn't long lasting on my watery eyes.
RMS Beauty is a natural beauty line and the ingredients of their cream eyeshadows are great:
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopherol (non-GMO), Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Mica CI 77019, Carmine CI 75470].
Overall I think that that the eyeshadow in Lunar is a wonderful, and not to mention cheaper, alternative to the Living Luminizer for girls with a slightly more tan skin tone. I can't recommend this enough and I'm sure it'll appear in many makeup posts to come.
Have you tried this or the Living Luminizer? What do you think of them?
