Who's the peachiest of them all...

I am in love with the two seriously gorgeous lippies I got yesterday at the National Beauty Blogging Event. I don't really have a tonne of such shades in my collection, so I was pleasantly surprised looking at these babies.

Peach, although seen as a bit radical and hard to pull off, is a colour that will suit almost every skin tone without looking harsh to be honest. It depends on finding out which shades of peach suit you and which drain you out.

I have below a RMK Lip Crayon in Coral Beige(£16) which I believe is a part of their latest Spring Collection. If you haven't had a look at that, then please do as its so colourful and fresh and definitely worth a swatch.

Competing with RMK, we have ArtDeco's Smooth Touch Lipstick in Passion. I have only tried out a Mascara from them before which I loved so I had high hopes with the lippy too.



They are both in the Peach family as you can see but obviously they have different undertones to them which makes them completely different on application. ArtDeco's Passion has a slight reddish undertone to it, whereas RMK's Coral Beige definitely has a lot of yellow going on.

Both of them are however in the warm/neutral family.

They have a lovely glossy finish hence are pretty moisturising and don't emphasise the cracks in the lips or any dry area's whatsoever. Of course they will slip around the lip area a little due to their silky texture. ArtDeco's Passion is however much more pigmented than the RMK one for sure but both are quite buildable, so I don't quite mind that. 


I decided to try on both of these lippies with a warm spring inspired look. I kept the eyes simple with an all over shimmery beige eye shadow and a tonne of mascara and warmed up the cheeks with Senna's Face Colour in Hue.

Below I am wearing ArtDeco's Passion. It's quite a dark peachy terracotta - hard to pull off in the day for me. Would be a stunning evening colour though! It has a slight reflective sheen to it, kinda metallic looking which I believe will suit the mature ladies much more. 


And now of course, RMK's Coral Beige. To be honest, it is exactly how the shade name describes it - a coral beige. A dash of beige/yellow popped into this peach makes it extremely wearable during the day. It a stunning nude-beige which suits my skin tone much more in my opinion. Worth a try!


Have you tried anything from ArtDeco or RMK? RMK has a gorgeous Spring Collection that you can check out at Selfridges and ArtDeco's Mineral Blushers were just like Chanels! 


p.s I am only wearing MAC Face & Body Foundation, Select Cover Concealer and Rimmels Stay Matte Powder in the pics above. I have no idea why I look painted!

Pretty! Your looks, I mean. Well, both lip colours are lovely, but the one from ARTDECO stands out a tad more on you. I've never tried ARTDECO products before, except for their nail polish. :)
