Blue Skies in September: Fresh Skincare, the RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation and a Givenchy Glazed Beige Lip

New month newness including the *RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation
Happy September, my friends! I truly hope your month is off to a strong start. Today, I am happy to give you a first look at the brand new *RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation #33--which is clean beauty at its finest--as well as fresh skincare in my rotation and a beauty look featuring the most perfect beige lipstick. Read to the end for a few key BP announcements, too! 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Skincare etc. 
// SKINCARE ETC. //
  • *Sisley Radiance Foaming Cream Cleanser: Designed to remove every last trace of makeup and dirt while valiantly detoxifying the skin, this gentle but effective foaming cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and balanced and performs formidably against even the most waterproof formulas. 
  • *Codex Beauty BiaSkin Day Cream: Founded by Barb Paldus, a scientist and Silicon Valley entrepreneur, this thoughtfully executed skincare line features remarkably clean ingredients and intelligent innovation backed by a host of scientific research. I learned about Codex from former Dior executive Dianne Vavra (an incredible force in the beauty industry who I've admired for years), who now serves as the brands Chief Communications Officer. In terms of usage, I like to apply the lightweight day cream directly following cleansing for skin that feels completely bouncy and nourished. 
  • *Codex Beuaty BiaSkin Superfood: This multitasker can be used on the face, hands and body to drench skin in a cloak of protective moisture. It has now found a new home in my daily work bag! 
  • *Oribe Run-Through Detangler: I am on bottle #3 of this brilliant detangled; it's my post-shower go-to and I adore that, in addition to banishing every last tangle without breakage, it imparts ridiculous shine and softness. 
  • *NuFACE FIX: A nightstand staple, I love the ease of use of this device, which harnesses the power microcurrent to smooth fine lines and lend to an overall lifting effect. I specifically target my crows feet and lips...passing the device upward actually plumps on demand.

Introducing the *RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation 
A while ago, I wrote about the cult-favorite RMS Un-Cover and always wished the versatile formula would come in a true foundation form. Fast forward two years and my wishes have been granted in the form of the *RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation #33.  

Ultra-pigmented and long wearing, this innovative, smoothing and perfecting formula is comprised of clean and skin-friendly ingredients that impart hydration and protect the skin from free radical damage. A little goes a long way, which means the coverage is buildable from medium to full in mere moments and the fragrance-free result--which banishes the look of pores, fine lines and discoloration without looking obvious--withstands heat and humidity like a champ. It's cutting edge green beauty at its absolute best!

In the images at the end of this post, I distributed a dime-sized amount of the foundation in shade #33 (a perfect match) in the center of my face and then used the *RMS Foundation Brush to adeptly blend everything in to a second skin. 

If you are seeking a full coverage foundation option with impeccable ingredients and impressive lasting power, then I implore you to give the *RMS Un-Cover Up Cream Foundation a try!

Style notes. 
// STYLE NOTES //
  • J Crew Button-Up Japanese Denim Shirt: Over the weekend, I was on the hunt for a new denim shirt and this chambray number fit the bill. Lightweight and in the perfect shade of muted blue, this is destined to be worn weekly. I picked it up in a size medium as I prefer a slightly oversized look. 
  • Topshop Faux Leather Shorts: A tailored look in a lush faux leather make these shorts practically acceptable for work...they're high waisted and perfectly pleated for a flattering fit (I ordered in a size 6). 
  • Sam Edleman Nude Heels: I originally bought these gorgeous heels for my brother's wedding but have worn them many times since then. Boasting minimalist patent nude styling and a comfortable heel that's easily under 3 inches, I can wear the all day without incident. 
  • Tissot Lovely Watch: It's been so warm and humid lately that I've been paring down my daily jewelry but this watch is perennially on my wrist. Luxe yet lightweight enough to forget it's on, I love being able to tell the time without looking at my phone!
