If anyone’s going to be the perfect candidates to talk about concealer, it’s us.
Let’s just say that dark circles, coffee, late nights and wine pretty much make up our entire existence. And we won’t get started on the hormones, because grrrrllll, we’re not immune to the odd adult acne break out.
And look, when it comes down to it, nothing makes us feel more alive and fresh feeling that a quick 60 second application of concealer under the eyes and around the nose.
And needless to say, we’ve tried our fair share of concealers; cult classics (here’s looking at you Clé de Peau and Laura Mercier), heavy duties (hey, Kat Von D) and those that reflect and brighten (touché éclat, you cheeky mix).
But when we recently tried RMS’ Un-Cover up, what we didn’t anticipate was that it would become one of our new favourite concealers, ever. We’d heard big things about this little pot; celebrity devotees and make-up artists around the world raving about it’s multi use as a concealer and a foundation, so we wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
We usually judge a concealer on two things: it’s ability to hide and also, whether it will blend into fine lines and not get all cakey under the eye. This did neither.
Also, once applied, we looked alive! Glowy! and, well, healthy looking. It has a coconut oil base so it’s super blendable and gives you a dewy natural finish, but also covers up enough where you need it to.
Ultimately, it’s your super lightweight option that’s going to even out the skin and give you a bit of dew. 5 stars from us.
