What Happens When Skincare + Foundation Have A Baby? – RMS Beauty Un-Cover Up Review

24310-300.jpg

RMS Un-Cover Up – 11

{This is not a sponsored post. I purchased this item with my own money of my own free will. I am not associated or affiliated with anyone mentioned in this post, other than Beauty Habit, who I occasionally get sent samples from for review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are honest and completely my own.}

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!

That’s All for Now – What Are You Excited About in Beauty Sales & New Products Lately?

I’d Love to Know in the Comments!

I’m not huge on fashion trends.

It’s not that I don’t like fashion because I love fashion; I just prefer to do it my way instead of following the trends of the runways or whichever. I feel like some of the trends are super unrealistic for everyday wear and then some only look good on certain body types (usually stick thin) and hence wouldn’t even look right if I tried them. For this reason, I always seem to be on my own strange, yet awesome trend schedule and that’s fine with me because I like having a unique style and I don’t mind standing out a bit.  After all, variety is the spice of life and you should have fun being who you are, whether that means following a trend or not.  Just make sure you have fun and that it’s a style or look that you really like and feel confident in. That’s not to say I never like things that are on trend because I usually like a lot of them. I’m just saying I don’t really care if I follow them to a T one way or the other.

With that, here are some styles I’m excited about this coming Spring & Summer that may or may not be on trend 😉

The Ballerina Look

Pinned Image

Uploaded by Coco Blanchard via Pinterest

I’ve always felt like ballerinas have an ethereal grace about them in the way they can control their bodies, but also in the outfits they wear. From tutus to leotards to less conventional styles, there’s just something really classic and beautiful about mixing classic ballet pointe shoes with anything, really.

Chloé Ballerina Flats - Masha Dancer

Chloé Ballerina Flats – Masha Dancer

Take these ballerina flats by Chloé. They’re super fashionable and wearable for us who aren’t actual ballerinas, but they still have that awesome look to them. It reminds me of when I was in high school – I had these black ballerina flats that I’d gotten at Nordstroms. I don’t even remember who made them at this point, but they had ribbon lacing all the way up the ankle and they made me feel so light footed and lovely all the time. *Sigh* Those are some shoes I literally wore into the ground until my mom threw them out because they were falling apart so badly.

Brightly Colored Clothing & Accessories

Cambridge Satchel Company Exclusive to Asos 11″ Coral Fluro Leather Satchel

I’m really loving bright Springy colors at the moment. I know that’s pretty on trend which is cool!

I actually first spotted this awesome Cambridge Satchel over on Minnie Mélange, only I prefer it in the coral color as opposed to the cool green color she picked up.

Image 1 of TFNC Swing Dress in Jewelled Crochet

TFNC Swing Dress in Jewelled Crochet – ASOS

I’m loving really flowy material for Spring and I always love lace type tops and dresses, but I’d love this dress even more with a brightly colored pink skinny belt or something to make it a bit more bright.

SURRENDER BOW PLATFORMS – TopShop

Brightly colored platforms are a fantastic way to add color to otherwise basic looking outfits that include a lot of black, beige or white and I really love these bow platforms! They also come in a funky pink color as well.

Braids

Unique Loose Braid From sincerelykinsey.blogspot.com via Pinterest

I’ve always loved braids, but with this season and the amount of never ending ways people have recently come out with just astounds and enthralls me. From fishtails to milkmaid style braids, I just find them all so lovely and there are tons of fantastic blogger tutorials online to learn how to do them all!

Crisp Spring Nail Designs

If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ll know how nail inferior I am, but ever since I’ve joined Pinterest and seen how amazing some of these nail designs are, I can’t help but get inspired to try some of them myself.

From salt manicures to these incredible jeweled ones, chevron designs, and other variations of the french manicure, it looks so fun and creative! I must admit that since starting this blog and discovering nail art, I have become a bit more ambitious when it comes to painting my nails and doing designs on them. Not saying I can do any of it or do any of it well, but I can try!

Colored Mascaras

I’ve been some kind of obsessed with colored mascaras for the better part of 3 months now, especially the copper hued Macao from ILIA Beauty that I recently spotted at Beauty Habit {see it below}. This one from Nvey Eco also looks promising and comes in black, brown AND blue!  There are also some pretty amazing color options from Sephora and Make Up Forever as well.

A Natural Glow

May Lindstrom The Good Stuff Radiance Oil

I’m not a huge fan of self tanner most days. When it looks awesome it looks really great, but for everyday looks, I just can’t be bothered to keep applying it without getting sloppy so I prefer a body oil or lotion with a bit of shimmer in it and May Lindstrom’s The Good Stuff Radiance Oil is perfect for that, especially in the Spring and Summer when it’s fun to have that slightly bronzed golden look! It smells heavenly { like chocolate! } and makes skin look naturally glowy and golden because it hydrates really well and includes shimmery mica in the formula. It’s definitely a holy grail body product for me as far as packaging, natural formula, and overall effect on the skin both superficially and beauty benefit wise. You can see my full review for it – here. If you absolutely prefer self tanner, a really great one is the one by TanOrganic and you can see my review for that – here.

Nudes, Pinks, & Nudey Pinks!

Image 1 of Pieces Heart Print Cami

Pieces Heart Print Cami – ASOS

Even when it’s not Spring, I love nude and pink colored pieces because they just go with absolutely everything and they look super feminine and romantic which I really love, given my period film obsession. It’s just the ultimate chic, womanly look in my mind, I suppose.

Timeless Bow Sandal – ASOS

Neons

Neon Yellow Power Play Blazer – Nasty Gal

Normally I really hate neon, but for some reason lately, I am loving neon yellow, blue, pink and some shades of green as long as they’re paired with grey, black, or white. It just goes, am I right?

Wedge Sneakers

Hilight Wedge Sneaker – Black – Nasty Gal

In spite of the fact that my boyfriend thinks I’m an absolute lunatic for loving them, I really love this whole platform/ wedge sneaker trend! Ironically enough, I had some platform sneakers way back in the day when I was like 10-11. I’m not sure where I got them, but I remember I thought I was so cool because the Spice Girls wore platform everything and I finally had my own! Shortly after, my little sister hijacked them so she could look taller and I’ve no idea what happened to them now, but just the idea that I could get that Spice Girl style back gets my heart pumping! Anyone else relate to this? No?

Swimwear

Image 4 of ASOS Caged Bow Back Swimsuit

Caged Bow Back Swimsuit – ASOS

The last thing I’m really excited for is swimwear because I feel like the swimsuits that have come out lately have been edgier and edgier and the cuts all look really fun and unique. The one above is one such style. Doesn’t it look cool?! The pieces tie in the back so it looks all bandage-esque. You know it’s a good day when one piece swimwear is looking pretty awesome as opposed to mom-like.

Dancing Mesh 2 Piece Suit – ECO Swimwear – Maaji Swimwear

I’ve actually never seen anything like the bathing suit above where the top is all loose fitting on top. It looks so comfortable and lounge-worthy which I really like about it. I think a lot of girls, especially plus ones want to wear these type of 2 piece suits, but without them hugging their body in an unflattering way. I love that this one is loose fitting because it can be flattering for many different body types.

Beach Bunny Swimwear – Time is Love Bikini – Orchid Boutique

This is another great style that’s really unique. It’s not as diverse as the others, but I really love the bead work and it’s perfect for those who get really tan in the summer because the color looks great against tan skin tones.

Malai Swimwear EXCLUSIVE – Gates of Chic One Piece Suit

I’m really happy that one piece bathing suits are getting less and less boring! This one has such a cool design on the back and I like having a nice one piece around for swimming as 2 piece suits just fall off when you’re trying to do laps. I’m just saying – a girl’s got to be practical!

Block Party Bikini – Nasty Gal

This last suit is a big trend for the spring and that’s color blocking. I don’t actually much like the color block trend in clothing as I think it looks a bit too 1985 for comfort, but I really like it here on this suit. It just works!

What Fashion Trends Are You Loving For Spring or Are You Making Up Your Own?

I’d Love to Know in the Comments!

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

I hope your week is going well so far and has been reasonably exciting! 

As for me, I’m currently obsessing over a few things (as per usual), but most of them have nothing to do with beauty for once, except maybe a few things so I thought I’d share them with you and see what your thoughts are! 

Wall Planter Frame – Fab.com

I saw this particular wall planter on Fab, but I feel like I’m seeing them everywhere and I love the idea of them for both design and environment. Growing up, my mom has always had a million and one plants in the house so now that I don’t live at home anymore, I find myself more drawn to house plants and this is such a lovely way to display them no?

instaxminicollage

 I’ve been lusting after these particular cameras for ages now and I can’t seem to get over it! 

They’re super cute and portable and they allow you to take mini polaroids which I really love. It must be because when I was younger, my step dad had this old polaroid camera he used for his work and I loved playing with it. The idea of instant pictures like that is really fun to me.

You can get these in a number of colors, but the Pink, Black & Blue are my favorites!

Antonia Burrell Supreme Moisturizer

I’ve been pining after this particular moisturizer ever since I reviewed a mini sample of the Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil. This isn’t just any moisturizer, either. It claims to clear acne, moisturize skin, diminish pigmentation and scarring, get rid of blackheads and redness, and basically solve every skin problem you ever had. I would think they were full of it, but I had such a good experience with their cleansing oil, I’m willing to spend the massive cost to try this moisturizer sometime in the future.

Tangle Teezer – BeautyBay.com

I keep seeing people raving about these everywhere and claiming that they’re amazing for people with tangled hair. Since I’m someone who has to battle my own hair, even after a shower, just to de-knot it, this really piqued my interest and I was surprised at how inexpensive they are!

Liquid Gold Radiance

Liquid Gold Radiance – Alpha-H.com

You all know about my love for Alpha-H and, if not, check here. I have been wanting to try this for awhile now, but haven’t had the chance yet. It’s meant to help with pigmentation and to brighten the skin, similar to their Liquid Gold, only in serum form. I’ve seen some reviews praising this one so I definitely want to try this out in the future!

23750-300.jpg

ILIA Beauty Mascara in Macao – BeautyHabit.com

For some reason, I’m super obsessed with colored mascaras right now. I am on the lookout for a nice one in blue, purple, green and copper. This one by ILIA Beauty looks amazing as it’s a really unique copper color which I think would highlight my hazel eye color nicely. I’ll probably buy this soon anyway, but if you all have any nice colored mascaras to recommend, I’d appreciate your thoughts in the comments!

Pinned Image

I first posted on these in the My Velvet Obsession post I did awhile ago, but I still haven’t picked these up. I’ve been trying to completely pay off debt ( not much left, but I’d like a clean slate before I go on any shopping spree which is why I’ve abstained ) so that’s why I haven’t purchased these yet, but I definitely plan to get them in this color and the black. So adorable. I need them! Lol.

So, is there anything you’re fixating on or obsessed with currently?

I’d love to know about it in the comments!

10thDayofXmasGiveaway_StorybookApothecary.Com

Today’s giveaway is a bit different than the others, though still really awesome!

Obviously today’s giveaway is for jewelry, but I think the items up for grabs are really lovely and I’ve thought to include them as the company offering them up is ran by my mom (and I occasionally help her out with blogging and the like ;-)).

She’s very kindly given me these 3 pieces from her Amazon shop for giveaway, but she carries loads of other items including ear cuffs, wraps, necklaces, earrings, and other unique items! The name, Bella Graciela, is named for both of my grandmothers and I think it rolls rather nicely off the tongue, don’t you?

Anyway, up for grabs is a cell phone dust plug which is an adorable rhinestone studded kitten, a porcelain ceramic guitar necklace which is both handmade and hand painted by students, and adorable fashion vintage style earrings!

I hope you’ll all sign up and, as always, you have 48 hours to do so!

Special thanks to my mom (Hi Mom!) & Bella Graciela for sponsoring this giveaway!
