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

Max Factor Masterpiece Nudes

These are the three great little Max Factor palettes that I mentioned in my Younique review a few days ago I wanted to show you.

Max Factor Masterpiece Nudes

The three palettes are 01 Cappuccino Nudes, 02 Golden Nudes, and 03 Rose Nudes. The first two are both in the more expected brown neutral range while the second really runs with the rose idea – this is the palette Maybelline wish they had produced when they made their ‘Blushed Nudes’ palette and completely failed!
