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.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse you look so beautiful in the picture just the all-around makeup look you have on looks gorgeous by the way you have inspired me for many years and I wanted to create my own blog so I just started a few days ago I’m still trying to figure out the niches on how to make it work but I wanted to let you know that you’ve inspired me greatly hugs to you Susan

      oh gosh you’re too kind Susan thank you! That’s awesome news, congrats! I can’t wait to hear what your niche is 😀 I think beauty blogging is fab but craving a niche makes your site stand out and makes it unique! And in this day and age you def need to be unique when it comes to beauty blogging! Good Luck!

      • Susan Consuegra

        And thank you kindly to you could you give me a hint or an idea of what you mean by creating a niche do you mean by specializing in a certain type of product or a certain brand of product rather than just general reviews I understand if you can’t reply I know you’re busy but if you can I much appreciate it

          Aw my pleasure! I wish you much success. When I originally started out my blog I was very much into Asian makeup and beauty and it was a niche I covered that no one else was really discussing. I think it really acts as a launching pad for my blog. I always say write what interests you, discuss things like you’re having a conversation with someone, if you have some special love for skincare and knowledge of it maybe talk about it. Gathering attention via some sort of theme or niche be it fragrance, color, or skincare is a good way to gather an audience and later on branch out to include other catalogires and topics of interest. Beauty blogs pop up 100’s a day, you have to make yours stand out someway 🙂 So, if there’s some topic you’re highly knowledgeable on in the beauty world def discuss it 🙂 Hope that makes sense? Be sure to utilize social media as well, interact with readers!

    Ty so much, sound advice. And yes they do pop up so many a day but I think you should take great pride in that because you were one of the original Pioneers that inspired so many and it would be a tough job to ever be up to your standards so thank you for giving us all a great example to aspire to. Hugs to you Muse
