[Review] RMK SS15 Vintage Sweets - The Colours of Spring Summer

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled

Spring and Summer has never looked this dreamy and sweet until the latest offerings from Japanese makeup brand RMK, with its SS15 collection aptly called Vintage Sweets. This special collection that evokes a sense of yesteryear had us swooned over during our makeover session with Japanese makeup artist, Masaaki Abe San previously here, with a variety of candy-like pastel colours conveying a look of elegance and sweetness, in the most adult way though. It is as if you were suddenly young, all over again, reliving those moments of sweetness in love, indulgences in afternoon tea and fragrances. Let's take a closer look at some of the makeup items we received from RMK Malaysia, shall we?

RMK W Colour Mascara (MYR135)
One of the favourites from this collection of ours is the limited edition mascaras that come in 5 different colour combo! Yes, a mixture of colours that will pleasantly surprise you. These double-headed mascara has two different shades, for upper and bottom lashes. Housed in a sleek silver casing, one can create high drama from its sophisticated interplay of colour, shading and volume. It glides on beautifully and will lengthen yet separate the lashes really well to give a great definition to the eyes, both top and bottom lashes, as if your eye lashes are basked in the limelight, ever so beautifully.

We absolutely adore the formula and the consistency of these babies! It does not clump up and the variation of colour give us a pop of freshness, all ready for spring. The colour combinations: 01 Black and Pink (which we have here) | 02 Brown and Orange | 03 Blue and Violet | 04 Indigo and Green | 05 Dark Grey and Yellow. (a closer look here for shades). Lots of colours to choose from and it would be a fun play of colour mixture, we feel *_^

RMK Vintage Candy Cheeks (MYR110)
Well, RMK may as well called our cheeks candy anyway as the cheeks do look somewhat quite like a sweet candy, all lit up, as if blushing over some boy crush that one may have on a first date sort of scenario. 4 different kinds of limited edition colours, with a built-in mirror, these cheek colours are designed in the most cutest way, resembling flower petals in a wheel design, these two shades combo, when swiped together and applied, will give us a soft glow, with an alluring kind of nostalgic cheekiness, we feel. The white base from Candy Rose also serves as a great highlighter shade if you wish. The shade we have is Mocha Brown. Don't be fooled by that little slight bronzy shade in the pan, it looks really natural as it is blended with that bluish cool tone shade in the pan. Definitely a hint of summer there *_^

The shades: 01 Candy Pink | 02 Candy Rose | 03 Candy Red Rose | 04 Candy Mocha Brown (a closer look here for shades)

RMK Sweet Sugar Eyes (MYR110)
When it comes to eyeshadows, RMK has always been a proponent of subtlety, especially for spring, this collection is no exception. In line with its concept for the collection, these 5 kinds limited edition eyeshadows also housed in a sleek casing with mirror, small brush and come in two shades combo, with the cute stripes design, just like a candy in a box. Just blend the two shades together for an effortless chic look or use separately to create a variety of impacts and looks for the eyes. They will leave a shimmery effect on the eyelids, though only ever so gently, never overwhelming, no worries, lovelies. But if you are going for super pigmented, dramatic finishing and effect for the eyes, these may not be intense and strong enough for you *_^

The two shades we have are blue and gray. The shades from the collection: 01 Sugar Pink Beige | 02 Sugar Gray | 03 Sugar Blue | 04 Sugar Yellow Gold | 05 Sugar Brown (closer look here for shades)

RMK Vintage Sweets Face Colour (MYR160)
With diagonal stripes design, a combination of four pastel hues in a pan, this face colour comes in two kinds (limited edition) and gives off a little scent of black tea. It can be applied whole face after foundation or can be used for touch-ups during the day. The yellow green one (which we have here) evens out the skin tone while the blue lilac provides a lucent refined finish. If we were to compare, we do love our previous face powder from RMK's previous Spring collection, Play On Pink (here for more) a bit more as it has more hues to mix around with and we feel that one gives a better glow than the one we have here from this collection. Just personal preference *_^

The two kinds: 01 Blue Lilac | 02 Yellow Green. A special face brush is also available for purchase to apply this face powder with, if you wish. (closer look here for shades and face brush)

The rest from the collection includes the 4 x RMK Vintage Drop Gloss (MYR70), 5 x RMK Nail Colour EX (MYR65), 2 x RMK Nail Art Liner (MYR60) and more. Discover the whole RMK Vintage Sweets Collection here.
