Showcase: RMK's Dusty Bright Colours AW2011 Part 2: In-Action + Some Thoughts On Dusty Bright Eyes and Gloss Lips N



In this entry, I feature how RMK's DUSTY BRIGHT EYES and GLOSS LIPS N look like once applied and some of my thoughts.

You can view all the product photos and swatches of the Dusty Bright Colours Collection HERE


Here's a little re-cap of what Dusty Bright Eyes in Grayish Green looks like:

The cream is a deep, almost army-ish green while the accompanying silver glimmering powder is not just plain silver - it appears to be a little polarised because it can pull a little greenish, bluish and in some angles, it also looks like a deep gunmetal.

Here, I've used the Dusty Bright Eyes in Grayish Green using both the green cream and the silver powder; in keeping with the green theme, I blended Inglot AMC Shine 17 on the outer crease and beyond

Honestly, I really really love how the silver glimmering powder looks - like I mentioned in my previous entry, I would really be whooping for joy if they sold all of the glimmering powders on its own (cos I have a drawerfull of cream eyeshadows already! :P)

The one thing about the glimmering silver pressed powder though - I seemed to experience a bit of fall-out with it. I ended up with silver bits all over me and because I'm Miss Fidgety, some of it ended up on my decolletage! So, I've been playing with this for a bit and figured out how to use it with minimal or zero fall-out.

  • Although the accompanying brush is of good quality, I was more comfortable using my own eyeshadow brush - I realised I needed to use a very firm, dense eyeshadow brush to pick up and apply the product and I opt for Sigma F70 (its actually a concealer brush!) to apply

  • I mist my brush with MAC Fix+ and use the glimmering silver eyeshadow foiled - it doesn't seem to have an adverse effect to the product in the pan

  • I use firm, broad strokes to press and blend the glimmering eyeshadow onto my eyelid

  • After I've applied it all over my eyelid with the Sigma F70, I pick up some silver eyeshadow with my finger and blend it with firm sweeping strokes over my eyelid (essentially pressing the pigments on)


And presto! 0% fall-out, 100% glimmering eyelids! And it works on other cream bases too - I've tried it on an MUFE Aqua Cream as well as the Estee Lauder cream eyeshadow and it works beautifully too!

Its admittedly a tad pricey at SGD$65 but it looks so pretty and works well - I like Grayish Brown too! I really shouldn't but lets see ... Or I might get one of those RMK single eyeshadows - I find that I care more for the glimmering powder eyeshadows in the Dusty Bright Eyes pots and there is a range of ultra glimmering, glittery eyeshadow singles in the normal RMK range (the $50+ ones I've been lusting for forever?) Ok, my next mission is to re-swatch those singles and compare them to this one! To Isetan, I go!



Here's a little recap on the GLOSS LIPS N:

I've tried P-10 RED - which is actually a strawberry-red that veers a bright pink.

I've used several lipglosses from a variety of brands and those that I keep going back to are from MAC, Chanel and Dior - great colors, long-lasting texture (I know, MAC is a little sticky). This was my first RMK gloss and now I wished I had discovered them earlier. Its a very full-bodied gloss - its a little thick but not sticky and sits very well on lips. Some glosses just get into the fine lines and make your lips look wrinkly? Not this one! I also like how my lips felt very smooth and plump although this does not claim to be a plumping gloss. And the best part? It lasted pretty decently over the course of an Indian vegetarian rice meal. Now that's cool.

I'm a little tempted to pick up EX-02 DEEP RED but I look at my overflowing gloss drawer and that stops me ... but its LE ... and has blue glitter in it  .... *fights with conscience*


And here's the whole look, with the Gloss Lips in P-10; for a fuller-bodied pout, I applied Rouge Dior in Academy Pink 855 first and blotted it off twice with a tissue and then layered Gloss Lips P-10 on.

Face: MUFE All Mat; MAC Prep+Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer in Recharge;  Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Foundation in Warm Bronze (mixed with a little Lancome Teint Miracle in Beige Noisette); MUFE Super Matte Loose Powder in 52; MUFE Full Cover Concealer in 14 (undereyes) and 12 (spots).

Cheeks: MAC Sheertone Powder Blush in Dollymix; Clarins 3D Radiance Face Powder

Eyes: RMK Dusty Bright Eyes in Grayish Green; Inglot AMC Shine 17; Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer (lower lashline); Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Liquid Eyeliner (upper lashline); Milani Liquif Eye in Black (waterline); Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara

Lips: MAC Lip Pencil in Spice (lined only); Rouge Dior in Academy Pink (blotted off); RMK Gloss Lips N in P-10



I keep going back to this pewtery, gunmetally silver + green combination these few weeks - I really like how it looks and to me, its a refreshing departure from my other 2 favourite combinations (black + olive gold; teal + purple). I like this combination with coral cheeks and nude-coral lips too!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
