We have a new addition to our organic cosmetics category in RMS Beauty! This pure, organic cosmetic line has been wowing beauty editors overnight with many magazines praising it's amazing application and dual purpose products. In my opinion, RMS Beauty products are ideal for a woman on the go because their creamy formulations allow for quick and precise application. Started by makeup artist Rose Marie Swift after she started experiencing health problems due to exposure to toxic levels of heavy metals and pesticides, she decided she wanted to create a range that could never contribute to health risks. And she has as RMS Beauty is the first truly organic cosmetics brand anywhere in the world!
The RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is one of my favorites in the range due to the fact that you can pretty much use it anywhere. Remove eye makeup, cleanse your face and then moisturize your face and body after! Because it remains in it's raw and unrefined state, every living enzyme and nutrient is left intact to cleanse and nourish in need skin. If you really want, you can use it as a deodorant too!
The RMS Beauty Oil is a product you want to constantly find an excuse to use. Containing the highest quality of vitamin rich exotic oils, you simply need to apply 2-4 drops to freshly cleansed skin and press in with your palms. Very lightweight in feel, this is the way beauty oil should be.
I love a great multi purpose product and RMS Beauty's Lip2Cheek ensures I'm out of the house in a jiffy and still looking nicely made up. This unique creamy formula comes in six different wearable shades that coat the lips and cheeks with a soft flush of color. Mineral color and nourishing organic ingredients hydrate and protect the skin and leave a soft and subtle shimmer in it's wake.

Sometimes the simpler makeup can be the most beautiful. There's something to say for subtlety and a focus on enhancing your natural beauty with neutral shades and hints of shimmer. The Wall Street Journal online agreed, which is why they devoted a write-up to the beauty and 'brilliance of beige.' Organic brand RMS Beauty's creator Rose Marie Swift was featured as her line is built on creamy bases that glide on effortlessly, last long and are an ideal makeup formulation for older women because they don't sink into lines and wrinkles.

Starting a new relationship with a facial oil can be difficult. It's a word we tend to fear and one that is more safely applied to hair or the body than our product sensitive face. Oil to most of us equals breakout but little do we know that facial oils can hold the key to solving many of the problems we've been trying different creams and serums to solve. Flip through any beauty section in the latest fashion magazines and you'll hear about facial oils. Take for example the latest September issue of W magazine which happens to be the most popular edition of the year as it showcases all the best in beauty and fashion for the fall season and the following year. We were excited to see that one of our latest additions, the RMS Beauty Oil was included in the 'Chic Slicks' section as an organic facial oil that goes above and beyond it's competitors because it balances and moisturizes the face gently and naturally with natural mixed organic oils such as jojoba, tamanu and rose hip!

Every year we look forward to Allure magazine's 'Best of Beauty' awards and this year we're pleased to announce so many b-glowing products made the cut! To be amongst the 249 winners is no easy feat with only the best of the best being chosen. Think of these products below as the must haves, the gold trophies and VIP's of their category. With no further adieu here are your favorites:
Starting off the list we have Klorane's Soothing Makeup Remover Lotion. Included in the best of sensitive skin category, this gentle makeup remover can be used over the entire face to remove all traces of make-up hygienically, soothes irritated skin and decongests in just a few swipes.
Curls are key and if you don't have the right tools that bounce just isn't going to look as good. The 'Best Curling Iron' also happens to be a staff favorite, T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand! With a tapered and clipless barrel, it creates loose and undone waves in seconds. Tourmaline technology and infrared energy seals the cuticle for frizz free finish and amazing shine.
It's no surprise to us that Rodin Olio Lusso's Luxury Face Oil was featured as one of the 'Top Splurges' well worth the investment. A favorite amongst the New York City fashionistas, Tinseltown celebrities and Victoria's Secret Angels, people are going crazy for this face oil packed with eleven essential oils that sink into the skin and instantly hydrate and luminate the complexion.
If you don't have volume what do you have? For some of us, this doesn't come naturally so also considered an essential splurge in Allure's Best of Beauty awards is the Sachajuan Volume Powder. This powder based spray goes on dry, gives a matte finish and beautiful volume and structure instantly. Remember to shake out any excess! We were excited to see the upcoming Clarisonic Aria in the mix as well! We're counting the days until we have this breakthrough product on our shelves!
Eighteen of our products were featured in Allure's Best of Beauty and we're so thrilled! RMS Beauty's Un-Cover Up was a 'Natural Wonder' pick and of course they can't leave out the boys with Art of Shaving's Pre Shave Oil. So many to list we're going to need to do another blog!

Adding a little color to your cheeks help define cheekbones and can even make your eyes pop. Blushes—from neutral to daring—can really awaken your look.
We’ve come a long way since the days of having to pinch our cheeks to achieve that flushed color, and besides being thankful for now having beautiful options to replace that particular technique, we’re especially excited for the five following brands.
RMS Lip2Cheek in modest: This is a great color for fall, especially because berry cheeks are on trend at the moment. It adds a nice, natural pop of color to the apples of the cheek, and, bonus, it can be used on lips for too!
IT Cosmetics - Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks: This product works on everyone and gives the look of healthy, flushed cheeks. Designed by plastic surgeons with anti-aging benefits, this is another double-duty product.
Paul & Joe Cheek Color Refill in Cinema 04: This blush is a must-have for those who love a punchy coral blush. It’s easily blendable and can also be used to slightly contour. A little shimmer gives a radiant finish.
BY TERRY Blush Terrybly in Erotic Pink: When you want something a little less natural, this blush will definitely make a statement. Nothing too over the top, but this bubble gum pink is very feminine and always playful.
Ilia Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek: This blush has a few more brown undertones that look great on very pale skin or olive complexions. You can adjust the coverage and intensity of the color with the easy-to-apply stick design.
