I will not leave the house without my make-up on. There are only two occasions when I have gone anywhere public in the past five years without my foundation, mascara and a smear of lipstick on (at the minimum). One was when I fell down the stairs a week after having The Boy and ripped my episiotomy stitches out (oh, did you wince?), the second was when an unconscious The Boy was blue-lighted into hospital at 1am.
I am pale, and therefore various scars from teenage acne, post-partum acne and chickenpox when I was 19, are quite visible. I'm also knackered all the time and have shadows that even the darkest of alleys would be proud of. A light foundation with translucent powder and a brushing of bronzer is always the magic potion for making me look halfway alive.
But don't you just hate it when you start to look shiny after an hour, or when the foundation seems to just disappear from your face?
NIP+FAB has come to the rescue of beauty addicts who cannot get enough of their ‘best selling’, wonder treatments with the launch of yet another ‘hero product’….the NIP + FAB Sheer Makeup Fix.
Designed to create a smoother, softer, more even complexion, this clear blemish balm works by evening out skin tone and improve skin texture. It does actually leave your skin looking soft and sheer. I've been using this for a few weeks now and I must say that my foundation lasts a lot longer than without it. It sits on my skin better and doesn't seem to get absorbed (causing nasty pore blockages). At £14.95 for 30ml, I think that this is a good price for attaining a longer-lasting complexion, especially as it spreads a long way meaning that you only need a small amount each time.
The NIP+FAB Sheer Make-up Fix is available in Boots stores nationwide and from www.nipandfab.com
