When Nip+Fab announced that they were bringing out their own makeup range I think the beauty world squealed a little bit! I for one was VERY excited so when I “stumbled” upon the counter in SuperDrug whilst browsing through the Trafford Centre before heading off to see Shawn Mendes in Manchester last month I just couldn’t leave without grabbing something. Doncaster, wheres my Nip+Fab stand at?!
I felt a little overwhelmed with all the choices so instead picked up something I knew I could make work whether I liked it or not somehow. I went for the Contour Palette in the shade light (mainly for the banana shade!) and almost picked up the lightening drops too but thought I would save myself the treat for in the future.
Before grabbing this contour kit I wasn’t using any type of contour palette, I was just sticking to my individual bronzing and contour shades rather than sticking to one whole palette but after trialling this out for the last few weeks I’ve well and truly found every powder contour shade I could ever need. Right in this little kit.
I can’t even explain how pigmented, smooth and velvet these shades feel. They’re just as pigmented with a normal swatch and also just as strong with a brush. It takes one swirl into one shade to “over do it” if you don’t tap it off beforehand, thats how pigmented it really is on the skin. It’s probably one of the best palettes I’ve used that has all of the colours I could possibly need to chisel my cheeks out.
My usual contour routine consists of applying my foundation, and then highlighting my under eyes, chin and forehead with my Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer or the Maybelline Eraser eye in the shade light, baking and then powder contouring with my Benefit Hoola bronzer. Since using the N+F contour kit I’ve been setting my under eye area, forehead and chin with the middle top shade which is pretty much the perfect banana shade for somebody with my skin tone. I’ve not quite learnt how to introduce the 1st and 3rd shade on the first row into my routine yet but I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
When it comes to actually contouring my cheeks I’ve been swirling my brush between the three shades on the bottom row and then tapping the excess pigment off (sooooooo much comes off! It shows how pigmented it is) and going in on my cheeks, forehead and jawline. I still try and incorporate my Benefit Hoola as I love it SO MUCH but right now thats taking a back seat.
I’ve already taken it away with me on two occasions and saved taking three-four different individual compacts so its already proving how much of a handy, all round product it is!
At £15.00 and classed as a drugstore product some people may think its slightly on the higher-end pricier side of things but after using this and getting to know the product itself I would say its 100% worth the price tag!
I can’t wait to get my hands on some more Nip+Fab predicts, since I love their skincare so much it could quickly become my favourite brand.
If you would like to treat yo’ self to any Nip+Fab products, you can find their makeup in selected Boots Stores or at the following online:
