BEHIND THE BRAND

Her creativity has been featured in the pages of Vogue (French, Italian, American, Nippon, China, Russian) W, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, Marie Claire, Glamour, and Elle with some of the top fashion photographers in the world.
After suffering from health issues, Rose-Marie learned that her blood contained toxic levels of heavy metals, high levels of pesticides, and other chemicals. Shocked to learn of the link between cosmetics and toxicity in the blood, Rose-Marie realized that she wanted to help other women claim their right to healthy beauty. The result is RMS Beauty, her acclaimed line of organic color cosmetics with a mission to provide products free from harmful chemicals and full of healing nutrients that work synergistically with the skin, keeping in harmony with nature and our environment.
Let’s give them our FEMME ROUGE Review.
Lip Shine: This certified organic, nourishing lip shine contains moringa oil, which is rich in nutrients due to its natural fatty acids and vitamins A and C. The oils and pure mineral pigments make this exotic formula highly emollient and visibly hydrating.
Our Review: We found it easiest to apply this lip balm with a brush or q-tip because the jar was too tiny to apply with a finger. It smoothed our lips and gave a natural look for everyday, leaving us hydrated with just a hint of color (“Bloom” was our favorite).
Eye Polish: These eye shadows impart a veil of sheer metallic hues that give them a uniquely reflective finish. Apply sparingly and work into the skin as you would a moisturizer. Shadows work wonderfully on dry and aging eyelids.
Our Review: Creamy and highly pigmented, the polish adds shine to the lids – not for blending, it’s more of an everyday eye shadow to give you a natural and simple look. We tried the “Karma” shade and loved it as a one-step subtle smoky eye.
Mascara: Created with rich mineral pigments and certified organic oils, butters, and waxes, this volumizing mascara promises to make lashes fuller and more defined without flaking, smudging, or clumping.
Our Review: The mascara went on smoothly and clump-free. It did give subtle volume and definition to the lashes, and works best for a natural, fresh appearance.
Tinted “Un”Powder: Ultra-fine, light reflective powder contains a hint of color that helps minimize the appearance of pores, softens the skin, and absorbs oil. This powder is free of talc, silicone, perfume, and parabens. When applying, concentrate on T-zone area and use a little powder puff (not included) to set and minimize shine.
Our Review: This powder is very light and sheer no matter what shade you choose (we tried “2-3”). It is buildable, although not meant for full coverage. It makes a great finishing powder for use with “Un” Cover-Up, or by itself for shine control on skin needing minimal coverage. Made of 100% pure silica, it leaves skin with the most silky texture imaginable.
Raw Coconut Cream: A makeup remover that can also be used as a facial cleanser and skin moisturizer, Raw Coconut Cream is made with certified organic coconut oil. It is considered the healthiest oil on earth for its high levels of lauric acid which give coconut oil its antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties. It is good for all skin types, even acne-prone skin, and nourishes skin, hair, and lashes.
Our Review: We used this at night to take off our makeup, mascara, foundation, and lipstick. It was incredible, removing every trace of makeup and leaving the skin soft, without any irritation. Because of the sheen it leaves behind, we recommend using it at night only.
“Un”Cover-Up: This product reveals and enhances healthier looking skin, rather than covering it up. Lightweight, hydrating, and certified organic, “Un” Cover-Up minimizes the appearance of pores and rejuvenates the skin. Best used as a foundation or light concealer, it visibly melts into the skin while covering imperfections and redness. Apply sparingly with fingers over the T-zone area or wherever you need extra coverage.
Our Review: This is a great lightweight concealer that can be built up for more coverage. It feels like a natural extension of the skin, not a cakey layer. Recommended for normal skin, although it was gentle enough for our sensitive skin. We used shade “22” and set it with the Tinted “Un”Powder (above), which was a good pairing.
