Some mornings I need a little more tending to than others. Whether it’s lack of sleep the night before or allergies wreaking havoc, dark circles under my eyes tell me that I need more than a light dusting of powder to get me through the day. Even though I am crazy for makeup, I don’t wear a lot of it, and prefer a minimalist look and minimal effort in my routine. As a result, applying concealer usually falls by the way side.
Fortunately Rose Marie Swift, founder of rms beauty, created Un Cover-Up, an incredibly effective and easy to use concealer. I am in love with its consistency. It’s creamy without being too heavy and provides ample hydration so use of a special cream prior to application is not necessary. There is no chalkiness in this formula and it’s not thick. Actually, it goes on deceptively sheer as it effectively covers up dark circles while imparting a lovely soft focus glow.
My skin is light to medium and olive in tone, so my choice was 22. It’s slightly lighter than my skin which gives an illuminating effect that I like, but a mix of 22 and 33 would probably be a perfect match. I don’t feel the need to do so since 22 is working out very well for me. As you can see from the above image, the color range is limited so I hope they offer darker tones in the near future.
Not everyone is going to be thrilled that the concealer comes in a pot, but my preference is to apply concealer with my ring finger, so the frosted glass pot is convenient for me. The price tag of $36 might also make some of you reluctant, but I seriously cannot imagine going through my Un Cover-up in the next five years. And considering the high quality ingredients- they are organic, food grade, and unprocessed- as well as the fabulous efficacy of the product, it’s worth it.
