A few Drugstore Discoveries

There's nothing I love more than discovering amazing drugstore products. This month there has been some very exciting launches I've been testing...

Nip+Fab Foundation | £12.49 (currently on offer here)

Nip+Fab recently launched a makeup collection that really excited me. Their skincare is amazing so I hoped their makeup would be on par. One of the things I picked up was this foundation. At £12.95 it is on the pricer end of the drugstore scale but I think this is reasonable if the foundation is good. This promises to give and air brushed, filtered effect without being cakey or having a mask effect. The consistency of the foundation is very liquid-y, making it super easy to blend. It has medium coverage and a satin finish. I actually quite like this foundation. It doesn't have the most natural finish I've come across but as drugstore foundations go this is very good! The wear time is amazing too, when set with powder this lasts all day and I mean all day!

Nip+Fab Contour Kit | £15 (currently on 3for2 here)

I've been looking to replace my Kat von D Shade and Light palette (which is sadly running out) for a while but I haven't managed to find one that quite fits the bill. But I'm safe to say this one does! I went for 02 Medium. The shades in the palette are:

Aspen - This is a Golden toned highlighter. I imagine this would be great for darker skin tones

Rose Honey - Is a warm, Orange toned, matte powder. I think this would be great as an under eye setting powder for people who have a darker skin tone. But for me this is to dark.

Walt nut - This is a warm toned, matte Brown. It works really well as a bronzer, for adding warmth to the face. This is buttery soft, well pigmented and easy to blend.

Amber - This is very similar to Rose Honey only slightly darker. This makes a good mixer shade if I want my contour to look slightly warmer.

Truffle - This powder is my perfect contour shade! It's not cool nor too warm, it just works perfectly with Mac NC35 complexion. It's so soft and applies with utter ease.

Warm Ivory - I love this shade in the palette too. It's kind of like a setting powder / highlighter hybrid. It has very subtle shimmers in it that makes the powder brightening but without looking over the top. It works really well to set my under eye concealer.

This is such a good contour palette! All the shades are so soft and finely milled, if this was £30 I wouldn't question it! It's such good value for money!

Nip+Fab Highlighter | £15 (currently on 3for2 here)

Nip+Fab were on 3for2 so I thought I might as well get the highlighter palette to! And again this is a winner from the brand. The Palette is called 01 Stroboscopic. I'm not sure if there are more. But I think this is a really versatile palette and there is a shade for most skin tones. The shades are:

Selfie - Which looks Yellow in the pan but it's quite White to swatch! This is the only shade in the palette that I wont get use out of. It's just too White! This does feel a little stiff to swatch but it's not chunky nor glittery. This would be great for pale complexions.

Champagne - The name speaks for itself - it's a classic Champagne colour. It translates beautifully on the skin and catches the light really well.

Golden - This is similar to Champagne only slightly more Yellow in tone. On me it's slightly more intense too. Again, this isn't glittery at all.

Sunbeam - This is a stunning Golden Bronze shade. That would look amazing on tanned skin. This is so finely milled and pigmented.

Rose Gold - Rose Gold is my favourite shade of the lot. It's not overly Rose Gold though, it's more of a warm Gold. It looks so beautiful on and suites my skin tone really well.

Sunkissed - is a warm Bronze colour. This is too dark to work at all for me but for darker tones this would be great. It's finely milled and super pigmented.

Over all, I'm so impressed with this palette. There are a couple of shades I won't get use out of but this is still amazing value money. It's actually very similar to the Anastasia Beverley Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit.

Style Freedom Detangler* | £7.99

I've been slowly working my way through a bunch of goodies from Style Freedom and this Detangler has pleasantly surprised me. It works on wet or dry hair and really makes my hair easier to brush! It doesn't weigh my hair down either. It also smells amazing to.

Style Freedom Rejuvenating Oil* | £7.49

I've not had much luck with very cheap oils but this one is so good for its price point. It really nourishes my hair and leaves it looking shinier and healthier. I use it on wet and dry hair and both ways work really well. This brand is definitely worth checking out!

So...? Body Mist* | £3.99

Who remembers so? This is such a nostalgic product for me. But they've had a little revamp - got rid of the tacky names and brought out a line of body mists. I have 4 scents. But my favourite is Vanilla. I swear this was the scent 'Kiss Me' which was my favourite back in the day. This actually lasts a really long time for body mist. Every time i spray this I'm transported back to teens and I love it (haha) these are so cheap too. They're perfect for chucking in a gym bag.

Palmers Enzyme Mask | £5.49

I picked this on a bit of a whim without really knowing what to expect. This mask is an exfoliating and clay mask to not only brighten but draw out impurities from the pores. I really like these masks, it definitely does what it says. It also leaves my skin really soft and smooth. It reminds me a lot of the Mario Bescue Enzyme mask but for less than half the price!

I'm really happy with everything I discovered from the drugstore this month! Nip+Fab makeup were the highlights - I highly recommend checking a few of their products out!

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts...

Until next time...
