RMS Beauty Mod Collection Palette - Review & Swatches
RMS Beauty are one of the most covetable luxe makeup brands around, so it's no wonder that I've fallen head over heels in love with their beautiful Mod Collection palette.

Created by celebrity make-up artist Rose Marie-Swift, RMS are an innovative, cruelty-free, green beauty brand who use only use raw and certified organic ingredients in their products, and choose to ditch the 'nasties' such as parabens, mineral oil, GMOs, synthetic fillers etc. Their main emphasis is essentially on makeup that's 'good for your skin' and they see their products as 'skincare combined with colour' which is something that I'm seeing more and more consumers actively seek out.

RMS have plenty of award-winning bestsellers which have caught the eye and makeup bags of A-listers and beauty junkies alike (their multi-tasking Un-Cover Up is a firm favourite of mine), and earlier this year, they released two signature set palettes which instantly went to the top of my makeup wishlist. I've now been able to get my hands on one and it's drop dead gorgeous!

RMS Beauty Mod Collection Palette - Review & Swatches
The RMS Beauty Mod Collection Palette is much smaller than I initially imagined it to be and comes packaged simply in minimalist, sleek white plastic. Due to the eco-friendly ethos of the brand, there's no mirror inside, which means that the whole packaging unit can be easily recycled once you've used the products up. Normally, I'd be a bit annoyed about the lack of mirror, especially as this palette isn't cheap, but when I read about the recycling reason, it made a lot more sense. Plus, I usually always travel with a separate mirror in my handbag anyway, so it's really not that big of a deal for me.

The Mod Collection Palette contains five products:-
  • RMS Master Mixer (1.1g) - A universally flattering rose-gold cream illuminator that can be used on cheeks, eyes and anywhere that you want to highlight and draw attention to. The warm golden tone looks super pretty on the skin and has just the right amount of fine iridescence in it to add that much desired 'glow' without being OTT. Instead, it's very subtle and natural looking, but perfect when you want something to make you look effortlessly beautiful in a matter of seconds.
  • RMS Living Luminizer (1.1g) - Living Luminzer is one of the best cream highlighters that I've tried when I want a more natural looking finish. It glides on almost sheer and has a delicate translucent pearlescent hue which manages to catch the light and make you look a million times more awake and healthier. Like the Master Mixer, it blends and applies easily, and it doesn't feel sticky or look greasy. 
  • RMS Lip2Cheek in Smile (1.1g) - That bright pop of sheer coral pink is one of RMS' much-loved products - their multi-tasking Lip2Cheek cream formula which can be used on both the lips and cheeks for an easy wash of colour. I really love this shade as a blush as it helps to brighten up a dull complexion instantly, but it looks equally as pretty on the lips too.
  • RMS Lip2Cheek in Spell (1.1g) - Spell on the other hand is a gorgeous contemporary nude with a rosy undertone to it. This one's a lot more sheer pigment-wise than Smile as you can see in the swatches below, so it's ideal for those who want just a hint of colour. I really enjoy reaching for this shade when I'm in a rush and need something quick and easy as a blush and as a fuss-free lip tint.
  • RMS Simply Cocoa Lip & Skin Balm (1.5g) - Along the bottom of the palette, you'll find a thin pan of the Simply Cocoa Lip & Skin Balm which is packed full of Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Propolis. It's a deeply hydrating balm that can be applied on any dry areas to instantly soothe and heal, and I think it's a great addition to the palette themed around multi-purpose products like this.

Overall thoughts?
The RMS Beauty Mod Collection Palette certainly lives up to my hopes and expectations, and I feel like this will be one of the most used palettes in my whole makeup collection! The multi-purpose products are all fantastic and it's such an easy palette to work with - it's particularly great for makeup beginners and minamilsts. The compact size is also perfect for travelling with as it takes up virtually no room at all, and it's a brilliant way to try out a range of RMS products before deciding whether to splash out on the full sizes. A word of warning though - you will probably want all the full sizes after trying them in this!

RMS Beauty Mod Collection Palette* (£42) is available from who offer free worldwide shipping.
