Review of the RMS Beauty "Un" Cover Up Cream Foundation

 
RMS Beauty "Un" Cover Up Cream Foundation in 22.5

RMS Beauty "Un" Cover Up Cream Foundation in 22.5- $52.00:

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look? What’s inside?- Looks great to me! If you have issues with coconut oil though, you may want to try something else. Ingredients list below!

2. How's coverage?- 3: This cream is thick and dense. Drier skin types (I'm combo and this worked for me) may need some moisture underneath. From there, you can blend with a brush or sponge to get a more natural look and this allows for sheering out. It did mean I needed a setting powder too. Oilier skin types may LOVE this and need a lot let futzing around with application.

3. Does it last?- 4: It did hold up all day (I did a few full-day wear tests), even when running around in hotter temps. Setting with powder for my skin was imperative.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 5: I saw no breakouts at all!

5. Does it blend and build well?- 3: Without moisturizer, it sits on top of my pores creating a 'polka-dot' effect that doesn't go away. With moisturizer, is streaks a bit at first, but buffs out to give a natural finish.

6. Is the shade range inclusive? 4- 16 shades is great!

7. Is this a consciously-created product? 4- Cruelty-free and contains lots of organic ingredients = a great start. The main container is also glass, although the lid is still plastic. It's getting there…

FINAL SCORE:

23/30

PROS:

  • I think this launch is a great addition to the RMS line. You're going to get more coverage than some of their other products offered.

  • I happen to think this would be amazing for oilier skin types!

  • Plus, the ingredients are on point.

CONS:

  • I felt for combo and drier skin types, there was a bit more 'fussing' around when it comes to application than I'd like, especially for this price.

  • My one-and-done alternative (adding a setting powder would take these lighter-coverage options closer to full coverage) would be either:

    Inika BB Cream

    W3ll People Bio Tint

IFFY INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:

These were the not-so-great ingredients that didn’t pass the Rule of 3. Click below to find out all the details:

  • Titanium Dioxide- 1 to 3, *product may contain this. I’m not overly concerned here, but I do know for some, this is a deal breaker.
