While I don't do a full contour and highlight everyday, I do like knowing that it is a wonderful tool in which I can use to feel super glamorous. The only problem? Most contour shades are unrealistic. They are orange, or grey. Some are shimmery. Some are muddy or chalky. Most are not green and are full of toxic chemicals or if they do pass the ingredient test they are messy loose powders. I have found a few products that I can improvise with to use a contour shades (hello, cool toned - mid toned brown eyeshadows). I've seen Rose-Marie Swift of RMS Beauty talk about how the contouring craze has gone awry here and here. So when I saw that RMS came out with a cream contour shade, I bought it immediately.
Let's get down the the important stuff, the ingredients:
*Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax) (Cire d’abeille), *Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, **Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, Tocopherol (non-GMO), *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract
May Contain [+/-]: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica * CERTIFIED ORGANICn**WILDCRAFTED
I'd say they pass the test! Organic and Clean.
The texture is lovely. If you've every tried and loved an RMS product, you already know what to expect. The color is spot on and mimics a natural shadow. Most of all I love that I can wear it minimally for a daytime look or go a bit heavier for full glam. I would rate this product a solid 10 out of 10!
