RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad


Highlighters are definitely are the products that I am slightly (let's be honest.. a lot...) obsessed with. They add glow and life to face and body! There are so many formulations, textures and colors and I want to try them all!


This is my first ever RMS Beauty product, I was always curious to try something from this brand and when they came out with a four- color highlighter palette, this was it!

RMS Beauty brings natural beauty products made with organic ingredients.

These highlighters are based on natural oils and has creamy texture that almost feels like it melts once touched. They give the skin glossy wet look, depending on the amount you use it can look super high shine and editorial or natural skin like shine.  All colors applies smoothly even on the powdered skin and I find it's easiest to apply them using fingers.

I am so happy that I got this palette (I got it from Space NK), it does not have any visible chunky glitter and a great color combination. I feel like it leaves a little damp feel to the touch but it feels like nothing on the skin. I would not recommend using powder product on the top of RMS Luminizers as it feels like the powder would just stick to it and not blend well. I guess without the damp feeling the effect would not be as glossy and skin like.

It was quite surprising how long it lasted keeping in mind that I used no powder product to set it - I kept looking at the mirror throughout the day, and it was still there! It's super easy to touch up or apply a little more throughout the day as it layers well. Unfortunately the packaging does not come with the mirror for on the go touch ups, but I can appreciate that they stick to their natural philosophy and tries to save the nature. It's actually packaged in a very basic white lightweight plastic container with a small silver logo on the lid, but I do like minimalistic looking packaging.

Quick tip: makeup artist kit

Do you ever wonder how much does the makeup artist kit weights?... Usually a lot!

I am a big fan of using travel sized products for my makeup kit, because it saves so much space and it's way less heavy. I highly advice to try it if you are a makeup artist that needs to travel with a makeup kit too!

I have to admit that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to branded packaging. I prefer to have the original product package instead of just a plastic travel sized container you can get in most of the shops. It's because I am a very visual person and like to see everything looking aesthetically pleasing!

Most of these packages are refillable, so I just get a travel sized product once and keep refilling them from a full size container.


Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream is an amazing product to prep the skin before makeup. Super luxorious rich cream makes the face super hydrated and radiant.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow is a face primer with infused glowing particles to create a dewy look. I love using it for people with dry looking skin if I want to achieve naturally glowing skin.

Embryolisse Lait- Creme Concentre- you will see this product is almost every makeup artist kit. If I had to keep only one skin care item in my kit, this would be it. This moisturizer works on all skin types and can double up as a primer.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe, cucumber and green tea is a great spray to refrech and rehydrate the skin (also smells amazing!). I usually use it prior makeup application, but works great to spray it at any time of the day.

Urban Decay All Nighter makeup spray is a must have for a long lasting makeup. Just spray few times, let it dry and the makeup will last super long.

Urban Decay De- slick makeup spray is a must not only in my professional makeup artist kit, but for personal use too. It helps the makeup last all day and also controls the oils during the day. Perfect for oily skin people like me!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water works as a fastest priming product ever. Just spay it all over the face and you are ready for makeup application. It works both as a primer and finishing spray and adds lots of moisture and glow.

Pro Hygiene Collection Antibacterial Makeup Spray is another must have especially if you are applying makeup for other people. With just a few sprays your makeup products are sanitized and ready for clients.

Cinema Secrets Proffesional makeup brush cleaner is one of the most talked about brush cleaners in the world. I gave in, tried it and fell in love. The best brush cleaner I've ever tried: it even cleans a stubborn foundation/ concealer from the bristles and dries within seconds! From now on it's a staple in my kit. Also smells lovely!

MAC Fix + is a great spray to use both prior and after makeup application. Feels very refreshing, adds dewy healthy look and also helps to melt down the powder if you accidental applied too much.

MAC Oil Control Lotion is a very light easy absorbent lotion that actually feels a little hydrating even though it helps to control the oils. Lovely product to use prior makeup application.

Clinique Take The Day Off is one of my favorite makeup removers that will literally remove any kinds of makeup without irritating or feeling oily. The great addition to this is a safety cap on the package, so it's not going to accidentally open and leak everywhere.

What are your favorite makeup artist kit tips?

Nanshy Marble Blender Review

Hey there!

I am constantly on the look out for a great blending sponge that would not break the bank. I mean being a makeup artist means that you either have to keep washing that one and only sponge constantly throughout the day (and who has time for that?) or continuously keep adding more and more to your kit (because who can have enough of those?..).

I am an absolute fan of the original Beauty Blender and it sets the tone for what kind of sponge I'm looking for. Many people love the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge (I did a video comparing those two on my YouTube ages ago. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogLkkE0LMcc). It's a great sponge that works really well, but the couple of complaints I have is that Real Techniques sponge does not have a pointy end and starts breaking apart rather fast.

The way Nanshy Marble Blender looks like really cough my eye. I got two white ones with grey marbling across (how beautiful is that!!!) and a minty green one.


The way it's shaped is great! The sponge has a pointy end on one side, which works perfect for reaching small areas of the face that needs concealing. It's interesting how one side is flat and other is rounded- it works perfectly for blending out the product or applying setting powder. Marble Blender has a 'sinking in' in the middle part of a sponge so it's very comfortable to hold it in the hand; and a bulkier rounded bottom, so it sits on it's own on the surface.

This sponge expands quite a lot once dampened and becomes really soft and bouncy. I would say it absorbs a little bit more product then the Beauty Blender does but not as much that it would become a problem. I would say Nanshy sponge blends foundation, concealer or any other cream product as good as the Beauty Blender!


My final opinion? I'm really happy I got that a few of Nanshy Marble Blenders because they are a great addition to my kit and I can't get enough of them! Great product!
