RMK Classic Film Cheeks launched recently in Japan with the new RMK The Silver Screen Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. As a fond fan of Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush, I decided to pick up one of the five shades of RMK Classic Film Cheeks that are available! From time to time, I like a liquid cream blush as it is easy application when I’m rushing plus they tend to wear quite long and aren’t as much as a pain to apply as a cheek stain.
Here’s my thoughts and review on RMK Classic Film Cheeks!
RMK Classic Film Cheeks comes housed in a flat oblong barrel that quite resembles Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss or the lipglosses that came with the Sephora Divergent Makeup Collection from a few years ago. Each blush is 0.18 oz in size and will set you back 3,000 yen per shade ($29 USD).
Majolica Majorca formula is actually a lot like this but RMK is a little thicker in consistency. So, if you really want to try them I’d suggest going with Majolica Majorca’s because not only are they cheaper but I find they are easier to blend and look a bit more natural on cheeks. This is a gel-like formula with a creamy texture.
This formula is very pigmented so, a little goes a very long way. Start slowly and build as needed as I made the mistake of dotting way too much on and ended up with a bad case of clown cheeks. They blend easy enough but for some reason the color doesn’t quite look as good as I had hoped. To little and the color looks sheer and barely there, too much and I end up looking like a clown. I just couldn’t get down the right amount during application. They blend easily enough but at times I felt they also sheerer out considerably at times. It was just a weird application for me all around. The wear time was fairly good at around 7 hours without fading.
Mmmm, RMK Classic Film Cheeks are a bit expensive and don’t perform as well as I had hoped. If you’re interested in checking these out I’d suggest trying out the cheaper (and cuter) Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush!
I had a friend who lives in Japan pick me up my RMK Classic Film Cheeks but you can get them from gooddealer.com who is an excellent source for Japanese makeup and beauty. And Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush are available from a variety of ebay.com sellers.
