It’s been a long winter, and I’m looking for a way to bring my lips back to life.
Enter RMS Lip Shine. Few other products can make dry lips look and feel more like springtime than these cheery little babies.
RMS sets the standard for makeup that isn’t just safe, but also doubles as skin care. It’s pure brilliance, really.
I’m in love with a flattering rose-brown called Moment, the shade shown above. The texture is thick but not overly sticky, and offers sufficient pigmentation.
Inside the Ingredients

|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
RMS takes great pride in their ingredients. Castor seed oil is used as the #1 ingredient where other manufacturers may substitute with petrolatum. Not only is castor seed oil an excellent skin protectant and emollient, it is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory. Try that on for size, Vaseline.
The organic coconut oil used by RMS is their signature ingredient. It is extracted without the use of heat or chemical solvents, meaning the nutritional value is intact. Your lips will love it.
(To fully experience the benefits of RMS coconut oil, check out their raw coconut cream. As one of their most beloved products, it’s perfect for cleansing and moisturizing all skin types, from dry and sensitive to acne-prone.)
Got Sensitive Skin?
And if you have especially sensitive skin, here’s one more reason to love RMS. They don’t use steam-distilled essential oils. For those with especially dry, red, or irritated skin, steam-distilled oils in even the “greenest” of products may be exacerbating skin conditions. RMS products will never give you that kind of reaction.
Where to Purchase
