RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up Cream Foundation Review

I’ve been using this new foundation for a month now so I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts about it with you.  When I discovered the new RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up Cream Foundation on LoveLula, I just knew I had to try it.  Here are my thoughts.

RMS Beauty was created by a lady called Rose-Marie Swift over 12 years ago.  They pride themselves on their natural and organic ingredients.

 

The Shades

I chose the shade 00: a light shade for fair skin because I’m pretty pale.  I had tried the shade 11.5, which is a buff beige with neutral undertones.  It definitely wasn’t for me so I tried the other shade and it was just perfect for my skin.  It does come in a variety of 16 different shades, which is really inclusive, I think.

000: lightest alabaster, lightest shade for the true snow whites
00: a light shade for fair skin
11: ivory with slight golden base
11.5: a buff beige with neutral undertones
22: with its yellow base, this shade is great for light-medium skin tones
22.5: a cool buff beige
33: a warm beige
33.5: a warm tawny peach
44: a medium honey with cool undertones
55: a tanned amber shade for medium or olive skin tones
66: a golden sienna
77: a deep sienna
88: a rich auburn
99: a rich light mahogany
111: a deep mahogany
122: a rich ebony

 

The Ingredients

Most of the ingredients in this foundation are organic and the Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil is wildcrafted.  The other ingredients are lovely.  Just look at this list.

Organic Jojoba Oil: Rich in antioxidants, jojoba oil mimics skin tone and texture to allow for easy absorption of nourishing skin benefits, while creating a protective barrier from environmental stressors.

RMS Adaptogenic Herbal Blend: Hand-selected by Rose-Marie, our proprietary blend of 9 adaptogenic herbs balance and deeply nourish the skin while boosting radiance.

Wildcrafted Buriti Oil: Native to Brazil, buriti oil is rich with vitamins that offer super potent antioxidant protection.

Organic Coconut Oil: Extracted from fresh coconuts without the use of heat or chemical solvents, our certified organic, raw coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer that helps soften, protect and soothe even the most sensitive skin.

 

My Thoughts

RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up Cream Foundation - 00 texture

I love the packaging!  It comes in a glass jar with a plastic lid, inside a cardboard box.  Before applying my foundation, I always moisturise and use a primer.  I only ever need to use the teeniest amount of this foundation.  It goes on well and offers a medium to full coverage.  Let me show you what it looks like on my face.

It does sit a little in the large pores around my nose, but I don’t think it’s overly noticeable.  I’m really happy with the finish and it’s the one I took away on my recent holiday and the product I’m reaching for on a daily basis when I’m wearing makeup.  It’s quite expensive, in my opinion (£53, at the time I’m writing this) but if you think about its price per use, considering how little I need to use each time, I’m quite happy to pay that.

If you’ve tried this, I’d love to hear your thoughts.  If you want to give this a try, here is the link.
