Best Highlighter Status - RMS Beauty Living Luminizer Review

The term “cult beauty product” gets used often but very rarely does it actually identify a must-own, must-have product.  Thankfully, I’m here to introduce you to a cult favorite (that deserves this status) - the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer.

The RMS Living Luminizer is a highlighter and skin illuminator that enhances the skin’s natural youthfulness without being greasy or glittery (seeing is believing as there really are no glitter particles in this highlighter).  As you can notice from the RMS luminizer swatch, this product is slightly sheer with a silver satin-pearl finish.  The Luminizer creates a dewy skin finish and can be blended and applied easily. I tend to dab the RMS Luminizer on my cheekbones, brow bone, and around my eyes - the product lasts fairly long, approximately 8 hours, but be sure to not touch or pick at your face too often as the sheer finish can more easily fade.  While this is expensive (priced at $38), the pot will last you quite some time (plus, it’s worth investing in as it really is effective in creating a luminous finish). J.Crew currently sells RMS Beauty products so you can also wait for a sale to be nicer to your wallet - I purchased mine during the J. Crew 25% off sale.

RMS Beauty ingredients are certified organic and work wonderfully on my sensitive skin. I tend to not list ingredients in my reviews as that post would resemble a court of appeals brief (aka a ton of pages and incomprehensible lingo). So, what are the ingredients of the RMS Living Luminizer? Here’s the list: Ricinus Communis (castor seed oil), Cocos Nucifera (coconut oil), Cera Alba (beeswax), Rosmarinus Officinalis (rosemary extract), and may contain Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Mica CI 77019. That’s all ladies, no chemical-ly tongue twisters! I can read (and comprehend!) the four ingredients in a few seconds which says a lot about such a well-performing beauty product.

If you still need convincing, know that several stunning women (including Miranda Kerr) have been using this product in their makeup routine. I’m a tough critic on hyped beauty products, but the RMS Living Luminizer rightly earned and deserves its cult status.

Stay Pretty, Miranda M.

    Does this give pretty much the same effect as Benefit’s Watt’s Up? I’ve been using that for quite some time and still have quite a bit to go thru (trying to justify the Luminizer splurge). Thanks!

    I always try to judge a product as well without ignoring the hype, but it’s nice to hear that you thing this one lives up to its “cult” status! Thanks for your review

      I agree about the hype, sometimes the companies create it as opposed to the actual consumers - but in this case, the luminizer is quite amazing!

      be sure to stop by Jcrew or even purchase on the RMS site linked above - the swatches are true to life and they just adjust to each skintone (it works wonders!)
