R-M-S-P-E-C-T : RMs “Un” cover-up shade 22 review

 

White sleek and subtle packaging

No, it’s not a typo mistake on my post title, it’s just another shameless proof of my fondness for puns and other glorious rhetorical games!

A few weeks ago, I was desperately looking for a non-flaky, subtle and fluid natural concealer. The few ones I tried were nice (if your skin is not too problematic) but unfortunately too
sheer. After much deliberation, I caved in and purchased RMS’s coveted concealer namely “un” cover-up in shade 22.  My very 1st RMS purchase! *Applause Applause*

Ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499] * Certified organic

Impressions:
As you can see from the ingredient list, the formula is impeccable.
Non irritating, non comedogenic, “un” cover-up feels incredibly soft and glides on smoothly on the skin. For the first time, I’m actually enjoying putting on some concealer !  I have fair, oily skin with yellow undertone, and shade “22” is opaque enough to cover dark undereyes and little blemishes and redness on the face. It doesn’t make my face look greasy or shiny.
It works both as a (light) foundation and concealer.  What also really impressed me is the fact that it seems to look better with time. In the 10 minutes following the application, it settled nicely on my skin and stayed put the entire day. The price is quite steep (28£), it’s definitely an investment, therefore I’d recommend getting some samples before purchasing it. but once you find the right shade, I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple. And don’t be fooled by the small size, a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it almost everyday.

Would I recommend it! Oh yeah!
Great coverage, silky soft and void of nasty chemicals, what’s not to love?
Now, I’m hooked on RMS beauty guys, and I’m itching to get my hands on RMS lip2cheek in “smile” and a few cream eyeshadows. Oh boy, I have a feeling, this is the beginning of a love story…

What is your favorite RMS beauty product? Let me know!
Take care,

    1. Thank you! I know the price can be – or simply is – dissuasive (it took me a while to finally buy it). I barely use foundation or any other concealers, I only use this one now.
      I really like that you tried making your own versions! Hope you will do a post about it, or have you already ? x

  1. I just love my un cover up by RMS. It has ended up being my most used foundation/concealear out of all of my foundations since I transitioned into natural makeup. I just love it. For me it is worth the price.
