Nip & Fab Makeup Collection: My Favourites / by plasticloafer


Good Afternoon, and if you are reading this on Sunday March 26th, Happy Mother's Day! This week I was lucky enough to receive a preview of the upcoming Nip & Fab make up range, which will be sold exclusively at Superdrug in the UK. The collection consists of all of the basics; foundation, concealer, highlighter, lipstick and even a couple of eyeshadow palettes! So after testing out the products for about a week, I have brought you my favourites.

First up, we have the foundation which comes in 10 shades and two light and dark mixers if you still haven't found your perfect match, each bottle will cost £12.95. The foundation has a medium/full coverage and claims to 'leave your skin with a photoshopped for perfect selfies', and I can actually say this is somewhat true. The shade that I received was a little to dark for my skintone, so I had to use the white mixer (honestly you need the tiniest amount) to get my perfect shade. I thought that this would be a bit of a chore but after a couple of days I had mastered it. I have dry skin and for me this foundation didn't cling to any dry patches and effortlessly evened out my complexion. I did have to touch up throughout the day but overall I was really impressed. The finish is matte, and I used an Artis Oval 10 to apply it. By the way, isn't the packaging so cute?

Next up are the colour correctors. I am an avid colour corrector user, and as my skin is so dry and quite sensitive, I have always struggled to find one that actually works and doesn't leave me looking like a clown. They come in four shades and cost £8.95 each. I instantly thought of how much they reminded me of the L.A girl correctors, which I have used in the past but they really irritated my under eyes so I was a little scared to see if they did the same. They didn't, and they blended out so perfectly with a damp beauty blender and completely cancelled any discolouration in my skin, I fell in love instantly. The shades are pastel like instead and of being bright and like a crayon, this actually worked a lot better for me and if you are going to pick one thing up from the range, I suggest these.

Finally we have the highlighting palette, will I ever be able to write a post that doesn't include a highlighter? I doubt it. You get 6 universal powders for £15 and thankfully they aren't glittery. I don't know why but I despise glittery highlighters (i'm looking at you urban decay) and I was so happy when I swatched this palette and it was a shimmery strobe effect. The formula is incredibly soft and you can achieve any kind of glow you want. The powder is buildable and only takes 2/3 swipes to get a blinding highlight, yay! This really reminds me of an Anastasia Beverly Hills Glowkit, but for a fraction of the price. I have included some swatches below so make sure you check them out.

If you are interested in this collection then you can view everything on the Nip & Fab site, and I actually think you can order them now? I know that it will be available in Superdrug stores in the coming weeks if you want to swatch and have a play before you buy.

Thank you so much for reading, is there anything that has caught your eye from this collection? I was really surprised at the quality of the makeup so I am really excited to see what the future brings for them!
