RMS Un-Cover Up – 11

I recently picked the RMS Beauty Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation + Concealer in shade 11 at Beauty Habit and I am loving this!

One thing I really love about it is that, for being totally natural and organic, it has fantastic coverage, finish and it actually benefits the skin while you’re wearing it.

First off, if you’re unfamiliar with the RMS Beauty brand, it is a totally organic and natural beauty brand that offers pretty synergistic products. Some are simply skincare types while others are makeup products infused with skincare benefits. They mainly utilize the brilliance of organic coconut oil to offer tinted balms, concealer + foundation, lip and cheek tints, and cream eye shadows.

RMS Un-Cover Up Impressive Ingredients List:
*Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol(non-GMO), *Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain: [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499].

The Un-Cover Up is a product I have been wanting to try for ages, but it is a little price for a small pot of it ( $36 ) so I wanted to wait for a special occasion and I finally got it for my birthday!

I was really skeptical when I first received this in the mail because #1 I had never actually tried a cream foundation before and I was worried it might break me out and #2 It was pretty expensive and while my expectations were high due to the hype surrounding this product, so were my doubts.

I am so thrilled this actually turned out to be a fantastic base product and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants natural looking, but decent coverage in a foundation that will benefit your skin over time and has minimal ingredients.

The finish of this is very smooth on the skin and surprisingly hydrating. It seems like it would be oily on the skin, but it actually only looks dewy if you apply a few layers. If you apply a thin layer, it dries down to a soft focus, almost matte finish. I think this would be awesome for any skin type and it won’t clog pores or irritate skin at all. It can be used with or without a separate concealer – I’ve used it alone and with another concealer without any trouble and both looked really nice.

Overall, I really love this product!

It’s great for days when I really don’t want to wear makeup, but still want to look put together.

I love that it is capable of full coverage, but will let my skin breathe and I love that it has minimal ingredients. Lastly, I really love that it has a base of coconut oil which hydrates and conditions the skin while I wear it. If you want a makeup base product that is organic, has minimal ingredients, and will benefit rather than harm your skin in the long run, it’s absolutely worth a try. My only major complaint for this product is that the shade options are minimal and they don’t have any options for darker skin tones so it’s not really suitable for women of color or who have dark tans. I really hope they come out with more shades so everyone can give this a go because it’s fantastic!

I was recently sent this lovely, all natural petroleum jelly alternative balm called Waxelene for review.

It’s a very simple balm moisturizer with a short and simple list of ingredients : Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Organic Rosemary Oil, and Natural Vitamin E ( from soy beans ).

I really, really  love this natural alternative to petroleum jelly because it has super healing properties and is very effective, but the formula is uncomplicated and easily pronounced.

This balm reminds me a lot of the Egyptian Magic Skin Cream ( see my review on that – here ), only this has a much more pleasant smell than that one in my opinion. Both are pretty equally effective, though this one is a lot more affordable.

I’ve used this balm all over my face and body, on cuts, scars and any skin irritation or dryness I can find and it has done amazingly well. It has quickly healed cuts, scrapes and burns, leaving no scar behind. It hydrates my skin really nicely and doesn’t break me out. It actually does a nice job of sealing in all my skincare products for overnight repair treatment which I love. It moisturizes dry hands, nails and cuticles. I’ve even used it around my eyes and it doesn’t irritate them at all so if you have a small child, I think this would definitely be gentle enough to use on them as well. This is a solid medicine cabinet must have; I will definitely purchase this when I’ve run out.

Special thanks to Waxelene for making this awesome balm and giving me the opportunity to try it – it’s AWESOME!

Kanti Organics Body Oil has the right balance of natural moisture for the rejuvenation of your skin.

Kanti Organics Body Oil

One of the great things about being a smaller beauty blogger such as myself is that I get to review more small business beauty brands and, often times, find out that I can get a great product for much less than higher end designer brands would offer it for.

Kanti Organics is one such small, but nonetheless awesome beauty brand!

They offer a small range of natural and organic skincare products for face, body and even babies. Their Restoring Body Oil is the second product I’ve tried from their lovely range of products and it’s been just as lovely as the first! I had first tried their Rejuvenating Facial Serum which I highly recommend. Both smell similar and AMAZING as well as being effective in hydrating, softening, and brightening skin.

The scent of this body oil is similar, as I said, to their Rejuvenating Facial Serum, but it’s a bit more subtle. It includes tons of natural and organic plant oils such as grape seed, coconut, apricot, and olive as well as other healing essential oils which give this oil it’s relaxing, intoxicating scent. It’s super hydrating and softening and works well straight out of the shower when skin is still damp. It also works fantastic when you add a few pumps to your bath to soften and moisturize skin, especially if you’re the type of person who hates applying and massaging in body oil – you will get similar benefits from the oil using it this way.

Really, I can’t recommend this enough as a body oil for anyone and everyone. It’s really lovely in scent without being overpowering so you can wear it with perfume or body spray and it’s super effective at hydrating and softening skin without too much fuss. It’s a solid body oil at a very affordable price so do check it out!

Kanti Organics Rejuvenating Face Serum Review 

I’m absolutely loving the new Elie Tahari lineup for Spring 2013! (You can see it – here – if you like!) He featured a variety of vibrant colored super chic tailored womens’ wear that featured deep hues of blue, green, purple, and pinky corals and fuschia as well as lighter ocean blues and pinks which just popped with tons of color!

His collections seem to have a way of being eye-catching yet understated which I find really impressive and for his Spring 2013 Collection, he enlisted the help of top makeup artists from Jane Iredale to create totally flawless looks for the show!

All of the looks were so beautiful and totally on trend – faces were first given a dewy golden base with the Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener and the Brand New Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream (I mentioned this one recently – here – on my list of items to try in Fall 2012) to give the skin a naturally youthful and healthy look.

After they primed and prepped faces, Jane Iredale makeup artists created charcoal smoky eyes with natural lips. Using shadow palettes from the Simply Magical Color Collection such as the Sundown Pure Pressed Eye Shadow Triple  and  Mystikol in Smoky Quartz, they created beautifully subdued smoldering eye looks. They coupled this with youthful plush lips using the LipDrink SPF15 Lip Balm.

What do you think of the makeup looks that were created for this show?

Personally, I love that they used a natural cosmetics line such as Jane Iredale to create such feminine, sexy, understated looks. They matched perfectly with Elie Tahari’s collection and I love that they’ve done it in such a natural way!
