Reviewing the RMS Luminizer Quad

Testing out RMS’s Luminizer Quad

I’m a huge fan of Canadian brand RMS Beauty and their subtle, skin-nourishing mineral formulas.

And since I’m even more of a fan of dewy, glowing skin, I thought I’d add to my collection by checking out their cream highlighter range.

As I don’t use huge amounts of product and wasn’t sure which shade would suit me most I skipped over buying one of their individual highlighters and (slightly greedily) went straight for their palette, the Luminizer X Quad (£46, Feel Unique)



RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad Shades

Containing a small amount of four individual shades (1.2g of each compared to the 4.2g found in one standard pot), I thought this would be a great introduction to the colour range while also giving me enough options to switch things up for blusher/highlighter/bronzer etc.

The shades include Luminizer X- a warm, pearl-like shimmer, great for highlighting brows and cheekbones- as well as Champagne Fizz, a cool white glitter balm, great for adding sparkle over eyeshadow. My two favourites though are Luminizer Nude- a subtle bronze balm for contouring or bronzing pale skin tones or as a highlighter for darker tones-  as well as Champagne Rose, a cooler, paler brown, ideal for warmer skin tones or even as an eyeshadow. 



How to Use

Definitely designed with ease of use (and makeup skill-free people like me) in mind, these highlighters can be applied both with a brush or sponge, but work especially well applied by finger.I love using these dabbed onto brow bones, cheekbones, noses or pretty much anywhere else I want a subtle glow.I also really like using Champagne Rose as a natural looking (and beautifully glowy) eye shadow. 



On the Skin

The shades all have a creamy formula which glides on without pulling skin.  While the addition of castor seed oil and coconut oil makes these nourishing and moisturising on my skin.

And although the coconut and castor seed oils in this formula would normally be a little heavy my skin when it’s oilier or in warmer weather, the thin texture of this highlighter (couple with the fact that I’m only using it on small areas of my face) means it doesn’t seem to cause me any problems breakout-wise.There is also some beeswax, mineral pigment, vitamin E and rosemary leaf extract here, while more common makeup ingredients like silicones have been left out.I’ve included the full list of ingredients at the bottom of this post. 



The Takeaway

Although at £46 this isn’t the world’s cheapest palette, RMS products do tend to last well and I’m really impressed by both the quality and dewy look here.Overall I love the creamy formulas, the subtle, skin-glowing effects, and the range of shades here.

Great for: Dewy skin fans, organic and natural beauty lovers and anyone who likes cream formulas.

Not-so-great for: Acne skin types, who might find the coconut oil here a little rich.
