If you’re not reading Lara Ramos at The Glossarie, you should be. I find her endorsements and reviews to be some of the most accurate and reliable on the Web. But every now and again, I try a product that she loved and just don’t fall hard for it. Such is the case with RMS Beauty Uncover Up ($36).
Because I have acne and dark under eye circles, the promise of a concealer that blends flawlessly and isn’t heavy drew me in like a teenage girl to a red velvet cupcake. But it wasn’t to be.
Applying the concealer was a bit of a challenge, it felt a bit dry and it took a lot of work to blend it in well. But even then, it seemed to crease and feather easily. Bummer.
The one good thing I can say about the product is that if you have a tough time finding a concealer that matches your skin tone exactly, this may be the concealer for you. I’ve had multiple friends and readers tell me that they’ve never had a concealer that disappears into their skin so seamlessly.
And depending on what you’re trying to cover, I find that the Laura Mercier Camouflaging brushes are the VERY BEST. This one is for acne, broken capillaries, etc., and this one is for under eyes and smoothing out uneven tone. For real, these brushes will turn an amateur into a skilled hand.
