Based on the empowering philosophy that makeup “exists as a factor to bring out the beauty within you,” Japanese high-end brand RMK reaches a pivotal milestone this year, celebrating 15 years of dedication to the skincare and makeup artistry. A testament to renowed makeup artist RUMIKO, who founded the chic cosmetics brand in March 1997.
The commemorative collection, featuring a mythic-theme illustration of pixels & unicorns, was designed by renowned fashion illustrator, Hiroshi Tanabe.
RMK 15th Anniversary Cheek Palette – S$85
The celebratory year sees the release of 2 limited edition Cheek Palettes, each embossing a flower fairy whose petals boasting a playful combination of spring pastel hues with velvety finishes. Available in Pink Coral & Brown Beige.
Brown Beige is a bronzy palette that’s perfect for defining your cheek bones, and should suffice to be worn on its won. When compared alongside DIOR Diamand Ambré, the heavily swatched RMK’s appeared to have a darker hue whereas Dior’s compliments as a highlighter. I can foresee myself executing both at the same time for a fun night out. Ivanka Trump is also known to embrace bronzers on a daily basis to sculpt her facial contours.
The pixie’s head and necklace turned out to be an overspray, with a gentle swirl of a brush. Although this could be an irritating factor especially for beauty junkies who collects such chic memorabilia, the brand compensates with the plastic casing printed with the pixel’s features and outline of the petals. Check out Rouge Deluxe‘s take on the Pink Coral Palette.
Come summer will see another wave of makeup collectables, with products cleverly crafted in a lipstick casing adorned with the brand’s 15th Anniversary makeup fairies.
RMK 15th Anniversary Eye Palette
Each eyeshadow quad comes in 4 soft, metallic shades that features the brand’s signatory soft spherical powders that glide and blend upon application. The lipstick-casing design is also coupled with a portable mirror and brush. Available in 01 Brown (Warm Bronze) & 02 Gray (Fresh Silver Blue-Gray).
