RMS Beauty Limited Edition Wild With Desire Mini Lipstick Set 2018 - Review & Swatches
I took advantage of a few Black Friday deals this year and I couldn't pass up the new Limited Edition Mini Lipstick Set from RMS Beauty which I spotted online last month. It's gorgeous!

RMS Beauty is one of the most covetable and luxurious makeup brands in the green beauty world. Actually, scrap that, they're incredibly popular in the mainstream as well, being a regularly featured favourite amongst many celebrity makeup artists, A-list Hollywood actresses and supermodels. The woman behind the brand, Rose-Marie Swift (hence the 'RMS'), is a renowned celebrity make-up artist herself and developed the company because she wanted to use products that were not only cruelty-free, but that had formulas which were certified organic and made from raw and natural ingredients.

I've had the pleasure of trying many RMS products over the years and I particularly love their Un Cover-Up (a thick and creamy concealer and foundation in one), and the brand's beautiful cream highlighters and Lip2Cheek pots (see some of my favourite shades in the Mod Palette here). Late last year, RMS launched their Wild With Desire Lipsticks and I fell even more in love!

Naturally, when I saw that they had released a special Limited Edition Mini Lipstick Set just in time for Christmas, I had to get my hands on one. The set features five mini lipsticks which showcase two of RMS' bestsellers, Temptation and Jezebel, alongside three BRAND NEW and EXCLUSIVE shades; Unmistakable, Masquerade and Nightfall.

The RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Lipsticks has a classic satin finish to them which apply smoothly on the lips. They are seriously pigmented (one swipe is all you need to reach full opacity), so the darker shades, in particular, will need some extra care and attention to apply - I'd recommend using a lip liner and a lip brush to get the best results with those ones.

I don't find these lipsticks all that moisturising, despite the fact that the formula is enriched with RMS Beauty Oil, nor I do I find them particularly drying - they're somewhere in between for me. However, I've seen other bloggers mention that they feel on the drying side for them, so you may want to use a lip balm underneath if you have very dry lips. Performance wise, I consider these to be a lot longer lasting than other natural lipsticks that I've tested out in the past, and you'll need touch-ups for the darker colours after eating and drinking, although they do leave a pretty stain behind.

Right then, who wants to see some swatches?!

Starting off with the lightest shade, Unmistakable is one of the three new and exclusive shades in this set and it's a straight-up pale nude with a light beige undertone. I was initially concerned that this was going to wash me out too much when I first applied it, but it's perhaps the palest nude that I can probably get away with wearing. It looks stunning with a dramatic smokey eye and is a good one to go for if you're into those classic KimK colours.

Spoiler alert: I already have this shade Temptation and love it to bits! You can clearly see why it's one of RMS' bestsellers can't you? It's the most perfect every day, pinky-mauve that just goes with everything and I've recommended this colour to so many people who tell me it's become a new favourite for them. If you only buy one shade from RMS, make it this one.

I don't usually reach for such vibrant pinks, but new shade Masquerade has really grown on me. It's surprisingly wearable and has 'Summer Holiday' written all over it - I want to take it to the beach pronto! This cool-toned pink will instantly brighten up your complexion and it gives your lips a juicy pout that makes them look fuller and more youthful.

Jezebel has been on my makeup wishlist for ages, so I was thrilled to see it included in this set. It's as beautiful as I was hoping it would be, and has such a rich blackberry-red colour that's ideal for the festive season and beyond. The perfect shade to wear on Christmas Day? Quite possibly!

RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Lipstick in Nightfall

The fifth and final shade is called Nightfall and it's my personal favourite of the set. I can't get enough of these deep vampy colours for Winter and Nightfall ticks all of the right boxes. A drop-dead gorgeous, dark cranberry colour with a killer '90s brown undertone and the pigmentation is insane - it's so intense and rich!
