Review: RMS Beauty Swift Shadows

RMS Beauty is known for its colorful lineup of coconut oil-based creams packaged in beautiful, frosted glass pots. Created for those who prefer powder eye shadows, RMS Beauty's new Swift Shadows are now available in 18 gorgeous shades! Formulated with rich, mineral pigments, wild-crafted buriti oil, and organic jojoba oil, each of these shadows delivers a stunning, light-reflective finish and can easily be built up for a more saturated look. Individually packaged in modern, white compacts, these shadows retail for $20 USD each.

Review of RMS Beauty Swift Shadows

Application + Finish

The pigmentation of these shadows on their own is lovely, but something magical happens when you apply them with a damp eye shadow brush! These richly pigmented powders are smooth and velvety to the touch. They also blend effortlessly and with minimal fallout. The intensity of the three Swift Shadows that I have tried is exceptional! On the lids, they create the most radiant, sophisticated shimmer!

The shade range may look subdued, but these shadows pack a punch! There are six color categories to choose from: Twilight Madness (grays and charcoals); Sunset Beach (peaches and apricots); Tempting Touch (beiges and bronzes); Garden Rose (blush tones); Enchanting Moonlight (purples and burgundies); and Tobacco Road (browns and soft greens).

RMS Beauty Swift Eye Shadows


The new Swift Shadows from RMS Beauty are perfect additions to this brand's ultra glamorous line of natural goodies. Unlike powder eye shadows that are baked, these shadows are pressed to avoid heat exposure and preserve the integrity of the raw ingredients. The texture of these powders is luxuriously silky and the pigmentation is gorgeous! I highly recommend applying these shadows with a damp brush to make their luminous, multi-dimensional finishes come to life! I applied Vapour Organic Beauty's Stratus Luminous Instant Skin Perfector to prime my lids and was able to wear these shadows all day without creasing. I am hoping that RMS will eventually come out with refillable compacts and some stunning palettes featuring these beautiful new shadows! Fingers crossed!

Have you tried any of the new Swift Shadows?
