Especially when said beauty products are also endorsed by glow-getters like Karlie Kloss, Gisele Bündchen and Candice Swanepoel. Because aside from all raking it in as international supermodels and Victoria's Secret angels, what do these women have in common? Amazing, radiant, glowy skin.
And we know their secret: RMS, the certified organic beauty and skincare line by New York make-up artist Rose-Marie Swift. After spending her life attending to the world's famous faces and doing the make-up for Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton and Victoria's Secret campaigns (among many others), Swift realised that the constant exposure to chemicals in beauty and hair products was making her ill - in fact, tests revealed high levels of heavy metals in her blood.

So Swift set about making her own products - ever wondered what RMS stands for? Now you know - free of harmful chemicals and full of raw, food grade and organic ingredients. "Chemicals are redefining what beauty is in today's cosmetic industry, and that is not acceptable," Swift says. So what makes the grade in Lab RMS? Raw coconut oil, cold-pressed jojoba, shea butter and beeswax - and surprisingly little else.
Sold? RMS' bestseller and celeb fave, Living Luminiser, is the best way to get acquainted with the range - it's an ultra-sheer, pearlescent highlighter that glides onto skin (cheekbones, temples, bridge of nose - you know the drill) and imparts a light-reflecting glow with no obvious glitter. We're also quite partial to the Beauty Oil (a divine blend of jojoba, rosehip oils and buriti fruit oils with skin-saving herbs and botanicals) and Lip2Cheek tinted pots - you'll find the whole range at mecca.com.au/rms-beauty.
