Quick Review: RMK Creamy Polished Base

RMK Creamy Polished Base in 01

According to RMK:

Made with a blend of three powder particles in different sizes and shapes to cover all kinds of unevenness on the skin surface. Its creamy texture delivers an even and moisturizing veil, leaving your skin supple within and a polished half matt touch on the surface. Choose from 00 to filter for a perfect translucency, and 01 or 02 helps to brighten the complexion.

My Thoughts:

The packaging, like all RMK products is simple and fairly sleek. I chose the shade 01, which is said to give the skin a brightening effect. 01 is a very pale pinky beige with shimmer particles. When the base is applied and spread, it turns a little translucent. The texture is fairly thick for a base, and if I wear foundation on top, it can feel a little heavy and my face feels slightly overloaded with product. I did find the product to make foundation stay on a little longer.

The creamy polished base can be worn alone, on top of moisturiser (my preferred method of use). If does give the skin a brighter look. I also really like the finish which is radiant and dewy.

Sadly, this base did irritate my sensitive skin a little, so would be careful when using it in the future. Or I may return it. I bought it in Selfridges which allow for makeup returns if you have an allergic reaction to it.

Just the creamy polished base on my skin:


Contains SPF10
Brightens the complexion
Can wear on its own or under foundation
Prolongs the wear of foundation


Can feel a little thick for a base
Irritated my skin very slightly


  1. this looks so pretty and natural!

  2. I own the other RMK makeup base and quite like it. It has not bothered my sensitive skin. It does not have SPF in it and it is more runny. Your skin looks perfect!

  3. aw shame that it irritated your skin! You look flawless though. I mean you look amazing lol i wish my skin looked that good :P xoxo

  4. wow looks really good and i love your skin so nice^^, erm i was wondering just a bit confused is a base like primer??

  5. your skin is amazing with or without that product! Shame you had an allergy reaction to it.. selfridges has a great returning policy!

  6. likeee your blog dear!!
    keep posting and go for it <3


  7. I agree~ It's better for you to return it, no point in keeping something that you're allergic to =[

  8. As always, your skin is flawless! Too bad this irritates your skin though. I've actually never tried anything from RMK, but I like their packaging.

  9. Think the base works quite well..but if it really does irritates your skin, u might consider to return it..nevertheless, thanks for sharing this review!

It was major accident for him. In that accident he dislocated his one arms. His car was totally damaged in that accident. Then he decided to sue against trucking company and won his case. He was awarded annuity payment for his accident by the court. Then he decided to sell his annuity payments for that company which provided him money in Lump sum payments. Then he knows about Genex Capital by internet. it is the best settlement company. So he was ready for selling annuity for Genex Capital. it provided him money in Lump sum payments.
