Everyone’s cult favourite concealer, the ‘un’ Cover-Up, has a new big sister, the RMS ‘un’ Cover-up Cream Foundation, offering claims of luminosity for an all-over complexion. As soon as I heard about this, I pretty much knew that I would love – I’m an RMS fan girl, and use a lot of their products pretty much everyday (proof here!).

How does it compare to the ‘un’ cover concealer?
The texture of the foundation is far creamier, richer and tackier. I find that the concealer gives a super skin-like light coverage when blended out on the face but it can err on the side of dryness for me. The foundation is a rich little pot, it’s very creamy and almost feels a little sticky initially. The coverage for the foundation is fuller than I expected – it can be blended out, but it’s far more pigmented.
Notes on application
The pot comes with a wee metal spatula which is handy if you don’t want to stick your fingers right in because of a) mess and b) germs. Although not good if you manage to misplace within five seconds, like I did. Less than a pea sized amount is enough to give you an application – the formula is super creamy and super pigmented. I’ve been applying a little to the centre of my face before blending out with a damp beauty blender which seems to be working nicely.
Notes on finish
Big fan of dewy skin? This foundation might just be perfect for you… The finish is seriously luminous. On my dry skin I love but I can see this being far too heavy for anyone with oily skin. Also, it is packed with oils – jojoba, castor & coconut, to name a few. Not for someone who suffers easily from blocked pores or blemishes. It also does need to be set, particularly on any oilier areas through the centre of the face – the finish means it stays a little tacky-feeling (not heavy or cakey! But noticeable) on the skin.
