RMS Living Luminizer

A while back I posted a link love via Refinery29 about the secret to those J.Crew catalog models’ pretty glow. Last week I was at J.Crew and stumbled upon the cult favorite: RMS Living Luminizer. The price point is a steep $38 but for some reason the cost doesn’t scare me as much as regular priced clothing at J.Crew (I only shop their sales). I love a good luminizer (NARS and Buxom are incorporated in to my daily beauty routine) but I have to admit, I can’t get enough of this ultra sheer illuminator. It has a satin-pearl finish, which is sweet and subtle, nor is it sticky, greasy or glittery (some illuminators will make me break out but not this one!). I like to swirl the formula using my ring finger and blend it on my cheek bones, brow line and cupid’s bow (you know, the usual hot spots). And for all my eco-friendly beauty junkies, you’ll love this organic formula containing coconut oil, castor seed oil and Rosemary extract. This can also be layered with RMS’ Lip2Cheek for some color (guess that’s next on my to-buy list). So did this once under-the-radar product live up to my expectations? Yes, yes it did.
