The New Nip & Fab Make-Up Range


I was super lucky to be sent a PR package from Rachael at Nip & Fab to try out the new Nip & Fab makeup line. I was absolutely buzzing to try everything she sent me because Nip & Fab are such a massive contender in the skincare market, I had high hopes for the makeup.

First up are the Colour Correctors. Now I'm not going to lie, I personally don't really feel the need to colour correct. Yes, I have eye bags and spots but I always tend to use full coverage concealers and foundations so I've never found colour correcting a necessity but I was pleasantly surprised. The yellow shade really does brighten and the orange cancels out any blue/black bags under the eyes. They blend out well and a little goes a very long way. If you suffer from dark circles or are into colour correcting then there's no reason you won't love these. However, what I will say I'm not a fan of is the packaging. I've never been a fan of squeezey tube products because I don't think you ever get the full product out. Plus, if you accidentally squeeze too hard and too much product comes out it's such a waste. But really, at the price can we really grumble? 
RRP £8.95 each


The matte liquid lipsticks are probably my least favourite product and the only reason being is the shades I was sent. I think I suit brighter colours on my lips. I always feel nude lips wash me out, even though I love a nude lip look so I'd like to try other shades. The formula however, is spot on and it does last on my lips a really long time. Not drying or flaky at all. The liquid lipstick market is booming right now but I think Nip & Fab are definitely giving some of the higher end brands a run for their money. Why pay double the price for pretty much the same product!

The foundation mixers are AMAZING! The white shade, for me, has been a god-send. I buy most of my makeup online and I don't always get the colour match quite right. I have a few foundations I've neglected because they are a few shades too dark so having the foundation mixers means I've been able to use them again. Honestly, a staple product in any makeup collection. The great thing is - they don't alter the wear or coverage of a different brand of foundation either which is truly amazing!
RRP: £12.95
The foundation is a really good everyday foundation. I'd say medium coverage but builds really well and gives a nice flawless finish. I've used quite a bit of it already. Again, not a massive fan of the packaging (boo to squeezey tubes). You get 30 ml which is pretty average for a foundation and again, at the price, can we really grumble about packaging?? It could be a great foundation to take on holiday as it doesn't feel heavy on the skin yet still gives a nice coverage and you don't need to worry about it breaking in your suitcase - bonus!
RRP: £12.95
The contour palette is amazingly pigmented and has such a good variety of colours. You know how there is usually one or two colours in a contour kit that you just don't use? Well not this one. I've used every colour. Which is great because it's so versatile it'll suit all skin tones. They are extremely easy to blend because they are so finely-milled and they don't leave that "powdery" finish that I've experienced with other contour kits. To get 6 shades for only £15 is total steal if you ask me. RRP: £15.00

Ahh my favourite product that I was sent - the highlight palette. Just look at it. It is stunning! The shades and pigmentation are spot on - it's fast becoming my "go-to" product to use for highlight. Some shades are more subtle than others which is good for the days you want to glow but not like from space, you know? Without a doubt it will be coming on holiday with me. I think it will be perfect from the start of my holiday when I resemble Casper The Friendly Ghost and return resembling a bronzed golden goddess. HA! Who am I kidding, I've got a 1 year old, I'll probably come back whiter than I leave!! Again, another steal - £15 for 6 highlight shades. I've paid double that for 1 highlighter before....... madness!
RRP £15.00

All in all, I'd say you definitely need check out the new Nip & Fab make-up line as there are some really beautiful products. https://www.nipandfab.com/makeup

If you're quick - Superdrug are offering 3 for 2 right now on Nip & Fab make-up so go go go!!

The products are in my opinion, great value for money. Extremely affordable, easily accessible and incredibly pigmented. The products I've reviewed are only a handful of the collection. There are primers, mascaras, lip liners and more. The blush palettes have caught my eye - they look incredible!

I created this "day glam" look using the above Nip & Fab products. Can you believe the difference!

Have you tried any Nip & Fab products? Let me know in the comments anything that I must try!

This review is not sponsored. I have been sent these products in exchange for a review but I will always be 100% honest with my opinions.

Skincare has become my obsession lately. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older and  my skin is changing or the fact that I don't wear makeup as often as I used to but I really notice a difference in my skin when I do look after it. I'm not just talking about taking my makeup off properly but really giving it a deep cleanse daily. 

I hummed and hawed for ages about buying a sonic cleansing brush because they are so pricey but my skin was looking the worst it had looked in YEARS so I bit the bullet and purchased a Magnitone BareFaced. A pink one, of course ;-)

My Skin Type

I suffer from large pores/textured skin and always have the odd hormonal breakout. I have pretty oily/combination skin as I do sometimes suffer from dry patches, especially if I use abrasive face washes and cleansers. 

What is a Sonic Cleansing Brush?

In Magnitone's own words: "A combination of sonic oscillations + pulsed vibrations to deep-cleanse, massage and tone your skin at the same time, just like a mini workout".

Why Magnitone?

I opted for a Magnitone Sonic Cleansing Brush over other leading brands because of a few factors. Price being number 1. Really budget friendly and with so many stockists like Look Fantastic, Feel Unique who ALWAYS have discount codes floating around it definitely hooked me in.

Secondly, I liked the look of it. Sounds a bit strange, right? Well my thoughts were, to entice me to actually want to properly clean my face every day (cause it's such a chore) I thought if I had a pretty tool it would make me want to use it (I'm a sucker for pretty things, packaging being my downfall) and I was right! I use it every morning and night and my skin has seriously thanked me for it. 

There are 2 settings: Facial Cleanse and PulseLift Toning Mode. Both modes last 60 seconds to stop over-cleansing and aggravating your skin. 

It's waterproof. You can use it and store it in the shower.

What's in the box? 
  1. Magnitone BareFaced2
  2. Wireless USB Travel Charger
  3. Travel Bag
  4. Magnitone Membership Card
  5. 12 month warranty

    AND When I bought my Magnitone BareFaced, I also got a FREE shower holder worth £20.00!

Magnitone have a great variety of brush heads. I am desperate to try the Pore Perfection replacement heads. I've already noticed a difference in my pores with the Active Clean brush head, can you imagine what this brush head will do for my pores?! Giddy at the thought. 

My confidence hits rock bottom when my skin is at it's worst but my Magnitone BareFaced has really helped me beat overcome my fear of being well, bare faced! My skin is noticeably brighter, pores are less visible and the overall texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.

If you fancy trying out a Magnitone BareFaced - they are offering free delivery on their website this week. Would make an amazing Mothers Day present ;-)
