The clean bronzer, highlighter, and blush trio that single-handedly brings skin to life.


It’s no surprise that RMS Beauty is an industry staple. After all, its maker, Rose-Marie Swift, knows exactly what it takes to earn a spot in someone’s kit. As an editorial makeup artist, she’s spent over 30 years honing in on formulas that apply easily, wear well, and photograph beautifully. The Sensual Skin Trio from RMS is all this and more.

Packed with the same clean ingredients found in the line's cult formulas—antioxidant-rich buriti oil, calming rosemary leaf extract, and vitamin E—the palette delivers a brighter and healthier complexion. How, exactly? It starts with the extreme care RMS takes in creating its formulas. By using minimal heat in the extraction of its carefully selected natural ingredients, it keeps them (and their benefits) as close to their raw state as possible. Equally noteworthy is this trio of super-blendable, creamy shades. Think: a just-back-from-vacation bronze, an illuminating champagne, and a rosy-blush hue. As Swift puts it, “color, luminosity, simplicity, and hydration” all in one.


“The colors blend well, and the blush instantly wakes up your complexion. Plus, it’s easy to pack into your purse.”
—Nikki DeRoest, Makeup Artist

“A beach travel dream. Enhance a tan, give a subtle blush, and add a touch of radiance all at once? SOLD.”
—Beau Nelson, Makeup Artist

“I use clean beauty brands where I can and love the colors in this palette. The soft rose for cheeks is gorgeous, the bronzer is beautifully warm, and the highlight is a pretty (not crazy) shimmer.”
—Georgie Eisdell, Makeup Artist


Following a testing period, the Sensual Skin Trio received overwhelming praise from our committee of makeup artists. VIOLET GREY requires that a product must earn a minimum of 70 percent of the committee’s vote before entering our edit. The RMS palette surpassed this rule in record time, with artists praising the palette as their new clean quick-fix for a brighter, healthy-looking complexion.
