RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection is, like its twin RMS Beauty Signature Set – Pop Collection, a collection of best selling RMS Beauty pots, with each of the pans containing high quality, luxurious, multi-tasking and versatile colors – all of this with a minimal amount of all natural ingredients.
A year ago I reviewed one of the two Signature Set Collections – the Pop Collection; today I am reviewing its twin – the Mod Collection.
RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection also carries five pans of carefully selected best RMS Beauty sellers, rounding them up into a versatile, multi-tasking, easily-blendable-together, high quality and all-natural luxurious collection.
Out of five pans, each collection consists of a highlighter, bronzer, lip & skin balm and two lips and cheeks colors. The RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection, which I’ll review today, is the the more subtle, more modest, if you will, of the two.
RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection is a five-pan minimalist yet elegant white quad/palette. As RMS Beauty products may not be the most affordable ones, and single pots of all the products in this beautiful palette may be too expensive, the Signature Set Collection palettes can be a bit more easily – though still not very affordable – option to enjoy in high quality RMS Beauty products; aside that, the palettes come handy as travel companions as well as an every day companion in a purse. If there’s one thing missing in these palettes is a mirror. And maybe a small brush.
Each of the products themselves, along with their main purpose, can be used for various tasks – and all of them can be mixed and blended to create new colors, new purposes. The RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection holds RMS Beauty Master Mixer (top left), RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (top right), RMS Beauty Lip2cheek in Smile (middle left), RMS Beauty Lip2cheek in Spell (middle right) and RMS Beauty Lip & Skin Balm in Simply Cocoa (bottom). There’s 1g of each of the pans plus 1,5g of the lip & skin balm.

♥ RMS Beauty Master Mixer (1g). At first glance and swipe, the Master Mixer is a highlighter or light shimmery bronzer – either or both, but despite being presented as the product, which can play any role as well as enhance and mix any other RMS Beauty product, I think basically all the RMS Beauty products, especially in both Mod and Pop collections, play the same role – as mixers. The Master Mixer is a a shimmery creamy product of a beautiful warm rose gold color. It can be used alone as a highligher, bronzer, lipstick or eye shadow – or mixed with any other product from both Signature Set Collections. It applies and blends easily: I found it working best with liquid foundation or BB cream; I first gently rub it between fingers, then pat where I wish to have that natural warm highlighted look; if I’m of an opinion I applied too much, I just use a foundation brush to blend it as much as possible. It also works wonders when opting for a minimal makeup look, using only a primer and/or a drop of face oil, onto which I then blend some of this beautiful Master Mixer. As the product is of a creamy texture, it may not work as well during hot Summer days as it does in colder weather.
Ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Silica, Tocopherol (non- GMO), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Mica and may contain [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499]
♥ RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (1g). Probably the most famous RMS Beauty product, this is the original highlighter/luminizer. It’s a sheer pearly highligher. Easily blendable, it can be layered in order to achieve a desired intensity of the highlighting. As all the other products from Signature Collections, this one, too is versatile in designated roles – whether used as a highlighter, or mixed with any other product you wish to enhance their luminosity and pearl finish. I rub it between fingers (all these products from this beautiful palette are coconut oil based, so a bit of a warmth and melting is needed) and then gently pat it where I wish for that natural highlighted look. The result is a natural glow – as long as you don’t go overboard with it, of course.
Ingredients: *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Mica CI 77019].
♥ RMS Beauty Lip2cheek in Smile (1g). At first it seems like this one will be as extremely pigmented as the Beloved from the Pop Collection – but it’s not; it’s more sheer and very gentle coral pink. Though that doesn’t mean it’s not pigmented at all – and if it is, you can always dilute it with lip and skin balm. Smile can be a lipstick or a blush and easily mixed with any of the other products in the pan. It makes for an elegant look, when opting for a minimal makeup, using only this one on my lips; may be a more Spring color, but hey – flattering in any season.
Ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Buriti (Mauritia Flexuosa) Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) seed Oil, Propolis Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/-Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, Mica CI 77019].
♥ RMS Beauty Lip2cheek in Spell (1g). This one is a darker and non-shimmery/matte complimentary color of the Master Mixer. The color is somewhere between hot cocoa and dusty rose, which somehow culminates in a nude lipstick. Another versatile product, which can play a role of a lipstick, blush, eye shadow – as well as being mixed with any of the other products. It has a bit of an Autumnal feel, this beautiful warm color.
♥ RMS Beauty Lip & Skin Balm in Simply Cocoa (1g). Soft and nourishing multi-tasking balm: it can be a lip balm or a base for all the pigmented products in a pan. It can be also used as a skin balm, cuticle balm.
Ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter,*Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Propolis Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract

How to use RMS Beauty Signature Set – Pop Collection?
As it is the case with all these products, which full-sized come in pots, all these pans can be used based on their designated purpose but above all – every pan is multitasking and every pan is mixable – your imagination is the limit!
The Master Mixer can be used as a bronzer (if mixed with Smile to get a bit darker color), highlighter (maybe mixed with Living Luminizer for a diluted rose gold color and more pearly finish) a cream eyeshadow (may not work for those with very oily skin). Lip2Cheek in Smile can be mixed with Living Luminizer for pearly/shimmer finish as a lipstick or eye shadow. Lip2Cheek in Smile can be mixed with Living Luminizer for a pearly/shimmery lipstick or blush/highligher. There are many combinations which can be achieved with these versatile and complimentary products. And of course – all the products from Mod Collection can be mixed with products from Pop Collection to achieve even more combinations – whether lighter or darker colors, completely different colors or added or shimmer.
Having a lip balm, lipstick, blush, highlighter, eyeshadow, bronzer – all in one with this palette, it makes it for a handy product to carry in a makeup bag. Also, you can easily achieve a minimal and natural look with all these products – and quickly, too.
Each of the products can be applied by using fingers – as the products are coconut based, a bit of a warming up may be needed, though if left in a warm environment, the products will be quite melty. Alternatively, you can also use a compact foundation brush to spread the products.

RMS Beauty Signature Set – Mod Collection ingredients
The RMS Beauty formulation of their products is remarkable not only as far as the quality of the products, but the fact they achieved this high quality with a very minimal amount of all natural ingredients. While I wanted to try the RMS Beauty products for years, I kept going back and forth whether I should splurge on these goodies given they are all coconut oil based and my skin translates coconut oil as comedogenic. Once I tried the RMS Beauty “Un”- Cover Up Concealer and had no reaction to coconut oil in it, I, of course, had to get other RMS Beauty products.
Most of the products in this palette are made of more or less the same ingredients – and they are all natural and stable.
Coconut Oil is hydrating and excellent for dry skin. It has anti-fungal and antiviral properties and is rich in Vitamin C and A. Shea Butter Fruit s an excellent moisturizer; it contains fatty acids, Vitamins E and D. It softens the skin, fights dry skin and has anti-inflammatory properties. Cocoa Seed Butter high in Vitamin E. It helps to soften, condition and protect dry skin. It also seals in moisture and improves skin elasticity. Cocoa Butter is high in Vitamin E.

My final word?
This elegant, minimalist palette of five pans is truly a treat for any fan of a high quality and excellently performing natural beauty products. Each of the products in this palette can be used on their own and you can achieve a minimalist and natural look with just these pans. Above all, all these pans are versatile and can be used for other than their designated purposes, along with the fact you can mix them all depending on your imagination. All the products are formulated with organic and very stable ingredients, which have antioxidant, antimicrobial and hydrating properties.
RMS Beauty products are quite expensive, there’s no other way around pointing this out. The individual pots are expensive (but oh so very beautiful and amazing!) – each of the individual pots of the products in this palette go for around 26£ – £36, so this palette of 5,5g for £42, while still anything but affordable, gives you the chance to either try five of the best selling RMS Beauty products for substantially less than individual pots cost before splurging on them or even saving in the long run if you keep purchasing the palette, yet still have the luxury of having five RMS Beauty products at your disposal at any time. No, the palette is not easily affordable, but with such high quality products it’s hard not to be drawn to it and it’s hard not to say I recommend it very much!
