RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up

April 30, 2014


It's been a while since I've gotten the RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up Concealer (see my Cult Beauty Haul) and I can report back that it's exceeded my expectations. Honestly I wasn't expecting to like this very much and was rather skeptical. An organic concealer with medium coverage, and lasting power? Yeah, right... Like those exist. Well, now I know they actually do.


RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up is mainly based on Coconut Oil, which was one of the main reasons which made me a bit anxious. Coconut Oil is very well known for its anti inflammatory properties, but it's also very nourishing, and because of the big molecules, it can cause break outs —depending on your skin. After having tried this for around four weeks now, over a variety of different bases, I can say with confidence that it gives a good bang for your buck. £28 doesn't make it the most affordable concealer out there, but one that works, and is not harming for the body —those are hard to come by.

The texture is creamy and very easy to blend in, however once blended into the skin it looks like skin and the finish is normal to matte. Believe me when I say it's got medium coverage, which is highly buildable. Any redness, blemishes, scarring or hyper pigmentation is gone before you know it. Because of the Coconut Oil, it's nourishing and doesn't cling on any unflattering bits of skin. I've got combination-oily skin and most concealers slip away during the day - UCUC lasted on my skin for around 7-8 hours, without powder.

Because of the creamy texture I use my fingers to blend in, which I find way easier than using a brush. But this is just personal preference. It's unscented and comes in a glass screw cap jar. The only bad thing I've got to say about this, is that the shade range is rather limited with only 5 shades - I've got 22, in case you're wondering. Besides this, I've literally got no bad things to say about this. Other than that I understand why Miranda Kerr loves this. The girl knows her stuff.

  1. I've been itching to try something from RMS and this sounds so interesting. Like you, I'm a little nervous about breaking out from coconut oil - but it doesn't sound like you had any issues with this which is reassuring!

  4. I LOVE this concealer! I got it when I went to New York so only paid $36 which made is slightly more bearable if I didn't like it but I do love it! I have horrible dark circles and this does a great job covering them as well as blemishes! I also love their lip colours :)

  5. I really want to try this out, but I'm always quite hesitant with buying base products when I haven't tested them out.. I'm super pale, do you think I could pull this concealer of? xo - Babette

  6. Ah, this sounds awesome! I really want to give it a try, especially since I've never been disappointed with anything RMS; I have a bit of a fettish with their cheek products--I have a Lip2Cheek, Buriti Bronzer, and Living Luminizer. Your opinion is very much valued, and, with that...*grabs credit card.* Ha!

  8. I've gone back and forth so many times about trying out this concealer. Its so expensive that I wish I could get a sample to try before I take the plunge. So glad to hear it worked for you.

  9. I usually stay away from coconut oils – period – but this really intrigued me, and I'm so glad I took the jump. Basically it's become my go-to concealer.

  10. Thank you. You'd be surprised how natural/matte it looks – no crazy shimmer or shine at. all.

  11. I think it's so easy to fall in love with their products, I'm dying to try their Lip2Cheek prods.

  12. Yep, it's amazing for scarring/blemishes. Never expected to love it this much.

  13. Hmm... I do wear it in 22 and the lightest is 11. I'm not quite sure what shade/skin tone you've got so I cannot help you with that, unfortunately. What'd be best is to check it out in a nearby store (if possible) and otherwise there are quite some swatches online too. Good luck!

  14. Haha, I knew you'd like it! I saw your recent additions, you are kind off addicted, huh? ;-) Though I think I got the RMS fever too, ha! What shade(s) in Lip2Cheek do you have, I'm really stuck between shades...

  15. I know right? I usually run across the other side when I read the words "coconut oil" on skincare, but this was actually really good. Not sure if it helped clearing up my skin, but it certainly is a kick-ass concealer.

  16. I know what you mean... If possible I'd just go to a nearby counter and apply it on (semi) bare skin and walk with it for a day. This way you're sure it won't break you out and you can test out the shade + coverage + lasting power.

  17. Haha! Yes--ridiculously addicted. I have the Lip2Cheek in Muse. I can't find it online; I hope it hasn't been discontinued. But it's gorgeous. Maybe you can find it on Ebay? x
