A few weeks ago now I attended a little get together at the Birmingham Selfridges RMK counter after being invited along by the lovely Vanessa. Having never tried anything from RMK before I was really excited and curious as to what the brand had on offer, it's always fun discovering a new beauty brand and getting together with the girls. It was lovely to catch up with Aimee and Sarah again whereby I also got to meet some new faces, Ting and Natasha.
The event involved learning about some of the products that RMK have, along with a demonstration of the new Christmas in Manhattan Collection which has recently launched. Within the collection there is an eye shadow quad, blush palette including two blushers, a nail polish and a lip gloss all for £49. I actually thought that was a very good price indeed considering one blush alone normally costs £19.
Natasha was our model for the evening and she looked absolutely flawless both before make up and after. Shanara from RMK created a natural everyday look initially using the new Christmas collection and then intensified this for an evening look. The pearly white shade in particular really added dimension to the whole look and for me is what made the palette extra special.
What I found interested me most aside from the make up was the skincare as you all know me by now I'm very interested in skincare and learning more about it. Before I attended the event I had heard about the RMK Cleansing Balm and how good it was whereby after having a closer look at it at the event I was even more intrigued. The balm itself smells beautiful, if you like rose scented things then this is certainly one to check out. At the event I was kindly given a sample of this so I'm looking forward to testing it out once my current cleansing balm runs out.
One of the stand out products to me at the event had to be the RMK Skintuner Treatment which is like a water based solution that contains hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. Having tried this myself I was pretty impressed with how soft my skin felt after sampling it and now I cannot wait to give this a try myself over a week or two. I think I may be able to stretch my little sample there just enough to get a feel for this product; we shall see. I have to say I found myself thinking about this product more than any of the others there, I think that this is because it seems like something so very different to what I have used before.
I'd like to say a big thank you to the RMK team at Selfridges for having us for the evening; it was a wonderful event that gave me a real insight into the RMK brand.
