RMS has long been one of my natural brands. Simple, pure products that operate like the glam-est of glam makeup and skin care + founder Rose-Marie Swift is just so gosh darn cool. Read my interview with Rose-Marie on Feelgood Style. Then check out my top-pick must-haves from RMS on my Brands I Love page.
RMS Beauty Mascara is what I call a wet mascara. As in it is more wet than dry. In my opinion, wet mascaras are where it’s at. I just don’t see how anyone can stand a dry mascara with all of that thick clumpiness. Nope, I’ll take a smooth, light, glide-able mascara any day.
I love the look of one simple coat to add a bit of spark to eyes, but you can definitely layer it for a more is more look. And still, no clumping.

Dr. Hauschka Mascara in black for volume and intensity
So, are you going to give it a try?
Good products made by good people are easier to come by now than they were even a few years ago. Still, you have to read your labels and follow brands you trust.
One such brand is made by my awesome friend, Ellen Holder. I’ve talked about Ellen here before, who, until very recently, owned CarenOnline. Now she is fully dedicated to her baby, B Leaf Botanics.
Ellen does her research and is focused on making super clean, high quality products. All totally free from harmful ingredients and made with the most beneficial ingredients she can find. One of my favorites is her eye cream, plus I a little birdy told me she is working on new stuff, so stay tuned.
Another one of my faves has just had a birthday. Spirit Beauty Lounge is 5 years old and also one of my favorite places to shop. SBL carries some of the top natural beauty brands, has a terrific sample program in place, and gives you that true beauty experience with products you can trust.
As a special thanks for supporting them, Spirit Beauty Lounge is giving 10% off all orders through this weekend only with code TYSBL10. A great time to do your green beauty shopping.
Put your money where it counts. Support these businesses who are doing it right. It only means more of a good thing.
Summer is very much on my mind. On Feelgood this week I shared my recent experience with spray tan (and why I heart organic self tanner), plus some new mineral sunscreens I tried on spring break.
For next week, I have something fun in store. You know all about those subscription beauty boxes. Seems like everyone is doing one these days. I have tried several, and recently tried a couple more. Will share those deets with ya. For now I will say that one is definitely worth it.
Hope you are planning up a great weekend. Mine looks a little something like this…
Still reading, or re-reading, this super useful-highly factfilled-wonderously put together eBook by two of the most fabulous writer gals ever! If are writing or have written a book, or think maybe you have a book somewhere in you, buy it. Now.
Sampling a brand new product (hint: it’s mascara!) from one of my absolutely fave organic brands. Can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Which reminds me, I have a BRANDS I LOVE page now. Check it out. Share it with your friends.
Have a happy and, hopefully, warm weekend. See you on the other side.
