RMS Beauty "Un" cover-up concealer in 11
Heavy swatch of the colour - this is on the inside of my wrist, which is a bit paler than my face. My foundation matches are MAC NC20 (although that's a bit too yellow), Bobbi Brown Warm Ivory, Chantecaille Ivory, Suqqu 10, Becca Praline and ERA Y3. RMS 11 is a pretty spot on match for me; it's what I've been wearing in most of my recent pictures.
Blended out; it's still not a perfect match for the inside of my wrist, but you can see from this picture that the un cover-up really does mimic the natural texture of the skin.
What I like about this: it does look very natural. It isn't too dry or too creamy; I don't have to set it with powder and it doesn't settle into fine lines around my eyes. I also feel comfortable wearing it to cover redness on my chin without worrying it's going to clog my pores.
Things you should know: it isn't the most heavy duty of concealers. It knocks back my very dark circles to an acceptable level for me, but it doesn't obliterate them in the way that Becca or Bobbi Brown concealers do. The colour selection is also quite limited: there are only 3 colours available currently, and very pale and moderately dark (and darker) skins are not catered for yet. I also found the online swatches to be a bit on the light side; I was dithering between 11 and 22, from the online pictures.
RMS Beauty is available at www.beingcontent.com, and the un cover-up costs £26 for 5.67g. That's not inexpensive, but I love the ingredients, ethos and finishes of all the products in this line, and I reach for this and the other items I own from this line (see my post on those here) a lot.
