You must have heard about Nip + Fib, if you haven’t – where have you been? They are very affordable and have products to target just about anything. They have skincare ranges for exfoliating and brightening, hydrating and plumping, softening and strengthening, targeting ageing and finally for smoothing and refining. They also have a fabulous make-up range professing to get you flawless, sculptured complexion to get you selfie ready. You can find them at any Boots and Superdrug so you won’t have to go far to achieve this look. I have been using Nip+Fab’s travel palette in 01 Light and the orange/terracotta colour corrector created to target dark under eyes. Although it’s recommended that this shade is best suited for darker tones, I find that it really combats my dark under eyes and I simply go over it with a touch of foundation afterwards. I also use the yellow corrector for days where I need to brighten any dull areas.
Packaging: I really like this monochrome scheme across the brand and this highlighter blush palette is a handbag friendly size; no wonder it’s called a travel palette. A slight downside is that you can tell that it is a cheaper high street brand as it’s a bit more plastic than posh. However I would say that the quality of the products outweigh this, so who am I to complain?
Price: The price for their make-up is a huge plus for the brand as it’s very affordable and doesn’t hurt your purse strings whatsoever. The travel palette is only £9.95 but is now on sale for just £4.95 on Look fantastic.com! That’s a true steal. The colour corrector is also on sale at Superdrug from £7.46 to £5.97. I find that the products also last such a long time as you really don’t need to use a lot.
Standard: If you read my blog on my skin story you will appreciate how important it is for me to find products that make my skin happy. I haven’t had any irritation or noticed any breakouts with Nip + Fab, so to all of my sensitive skin girls out there, this brand is for you! Plus you know you can trust the brand’s quality as it’s the little sister of Rodial.
Tips: When it comes to applying the skin correctors, a little goes a long way. Be cautious when squeezing the product out as you only need a pea sized amount. Less is more and it’s harder to blend in an excess amount in a smaller area, like under the eye. If you do get too much product out, use a beauty blender and blend until you feel like Picasso.
The travel palette in 01 has a lovely glowing highlighter, a rosy pink and a champagne/camel bronze. It also comes with a mirror so you can apply on the go! (You can also get this palette in a darker medium shade.) I would recommend that you make sure that you have a separate brush for your highlighter though, so that you don’t get any of the blush tones transferring over onto the other shades in the palette. I haven’t tried any of the brand’s foundations or lipsticks but that will definitely be next on my list for their make-up range.
