Nip + Fab Make-Up Haul, Review, Swatches & Give-away!

Nip + Fab Make-up Range
I’m a little out of breath after such a long title! It’s pretty exciting stuff though, popular skincare brand Nip + Fab have released a make-up collection!

Naturally, as soon as I was well enough and able to pop down the shops and bag me some of their goodies I did so. I wanted to buy the foundation in person rather than online so I could choose the right shade for me. This is something I always recommend doing if possible. If necessary take a tiny pot with you to put a pump of the tester in to take away and try in daylight.

In my Nip + Fab haul were foundation, matching concealer, the eyeshadow palette, and travel palette. I received a gift with my purchase of a little cosmetics pouch with a liquid lipstick, lip liner and mascara inside. I have another one of these pouches to give away so keep reading to the end to find out how you can win it for yourself.  Continue reading

Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Facial Oil

I’m coming to the end of my third bottle of this stuff now so I figured it’s really about time I told you all how much I love it!

It’s full title is Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil. What a mouthful!

This oil is great before a cream cleanser for those who wear make-up daily. It’s also good for those who enjoy facial massage as well as being a gentle first cleanse for people who like to double cleanse.

It is quite a versatile oil I find, as well as feeling like a real pamper with it’s beautiful rose damask fragrance. Continue reading

A Guide To Setting and Finishing Products

Setting and Finishing ProductsSomething I come across quite often is the confusion between setting and finishing. What they mean, what the products do and how to use them.

If you were to reach into your make-up bag right now, chances are there’s a powder of some kind, right?
Be it loose or pressed, labelled as setting or finishing you’ll definitely own at least one of the critters.

Powder is one of the oldest forms of face make-up and we still use it by the ton even today, but now there are more options to choose from than ever before. Naturally, it’s easy to get a bit overtaken by it all! I’m going to set out the differences between the two types of product. Continue reading
