RMS Beauty unveils some new beauty for spring! As a huge fan of the line (I swear by the RMS “Un” Cover-Up) I suffered heart palpitations the moment the new releases reached my inbox – any other crazy beauty junkies out there? Hello? A new product made its debut, called the Contour Bronze, as well as, a new Lip2Cheek shade called Spell, a lighter shade of the “Un” Cover-up and a new Lip Shine called Content.

“People love to use bronzer as a contour! We get questions about this all the time. Color-wise, bronzers don’t work well as a contour so I combined the two. Our Contour Bronze makes for a more realistic contour shade by using brown undertones rather than the dated red-orange hues. Doubles also as a bronzer for darker skin tones. Either way you can’t lose!”
– Rose-Marie Swift
The Contour Bronze naturally defines and sculps the face with a subtle radiance. When I first laid my eyes on its deep rich tone, I thought in no way that it would work for my lighter skin tone. But in true RMS fashion, the Contour Bronze blended seamlessly into the skin adding natural looking definition to the contours of my face. The look can be subtle to more dramatic, and I can see this product working well for a wide range of skin tones. As for a bronzer – I’m not getting enough warmth from this product, so I would reach for it solely to contour. The Contour Bronzer looks beautiful on the eyes (see image above). Rose Marie Swift does say that it “doubles as a bronzer for darker skin tones,” so I’ll just stick with the Buriti Bronzer for bronzing.
RMS Lip2Cheek in Spell is a nude pink shade that adds the most natural and subtle flush to the cheeks – a my flush but better kind of look. It’s quite pale, so it would be best suited for fair-light complexions. Spell is very close to my natural lip shade, although a bit more nude.
