I wasn’t planning on picking up an Eye Polish (£26.00) when I attended the launch however one of the (many) tips that Rose-Marie mentioned was the use of Seduce as a brow colour for blonde and lighter brunettes. A quick demo and I was sold and a pot made it’s way home with me that evening.
I have naturally quite strong brows which have always been significantly darker than my dark red/blonde hair, however I am finding myself more and more frequently defining them with an eyeshadow. Seduce is the perfect match! I apply it using my LY30 Angled Brow brush which has a mixture of synthetic and natural hairs – cream products are best applied with a synthetic bristles, however I find this brush works well for me.
Brow colour may not be the most obvious use for a eye shadow – especially a cream one, but if you do have light to mid toned hair then it is definitely worth giving it a go. Before I step away from the idea of using Seduce for other purposes, I should just mention that it makes for a great contouring cream too!
Seduce is a earthy brown with a soft bronze/gold undertone. On my eyelids it comes up as a gold toned taupe rather than brown; I am fine with this but be aware if you are looking for a true brown. This said, it is a really beautiful, versatile colour that would suit most skin tones.
As with all the RMS eye polishes, the formulation is rich and creamy thanks to the nourishing combination of coconut and jojoba seed oils and cocoa butters. It can be applied and blended easily with a brush however fingers work even better and mean you can really pushthe cream into the skin. One layer of Seduce gives beautiful, subtle sheer coverage but it can be built up. It is perfect for adding definition, wearing on its own or creating a soft smoke eye. It also makes a great base for powder shadows (simply push the powder onto the cream).
My one irk with the RMS shadows (as with with the majority of the collection) are the very attractive recyclable glass pots; beautiful on the dressing table but a bugger in a pro kit – they are so heavy!! As much as I love them, If I want to build on my RMS collection of shadows (I currently own three or four), I will have to consider deporting and transferring them into a palette…

This is a great cream product. I still use it with personally and professionally however I never did get around to deporting this or any of the other RMS Beauty creams, however lockdown is an ideal time to sort out the kit and depot… I’ve just given myself another project… ;)
