When it comes to natural, natural-looking beauty, you could say the brand which started all the hype was RMS and their ‘Un Cover-up’. Coming packaged in an understated glass jar, this is a product which whispers rather than shouts, and after using it for the past month or so, I don’t think I’ll ever be without it!
RMS Un Cover-up was the first beauty product I heard about which used coconut oil as its main base – like all of RMS’ products, it’s made of natural ingredients, free of chemicals you might find in other brands, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a vegan, cruelty-free option. I’ve been using it almost daily for nigh-on two months now, and it’s fair to say I’m a convert. I love the multipurpose nature of it, how easy it is to use, and most importantly, how it looks on the skin. Thanks to ingredients like the aforementioned coconut oil, and castor oil the Un Cover-up hydrates and calms skin, so over time, you can get away with using even less of it!
After applying a light base (I’m still obsessed with Glossier’s Skin Tint) I swirl a clean finger around the pot to heat it up, then tap anywhere I need a little extra coverage. Usually it’s around my mouth and nose, a little on my cheeks, and some under the eyes. The Un Cover-up melts into the skin, evening everything up, concealing blemishes and turning everything into a healthy canvas, primed for a swipe of bronzer. For a product made from coconut oil, it has a surprisingly satin-finish. It’s not as shiny on the skin as Glossier’s Stretch concealer, instead, it almost disappears, making it look like you’re not wearing any makeup at all. No matter how much of the stuff I dab on, it never looks or feels heavy – it just leaves skin looking perfected, and the effect lasts all day long.
