L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer

 L'Oreal recently released a mattifying primer and since I haven't really used much of their face products, I thought it was a good chance as I had just finished my old primer. I have found it quite a struggle to find a good primer, I love Benefit's but cannot afford to keep buying it unfortunately and Revlon and Maybelline's primer is really good but I need to mix it up a little bit. I didn't really get on with Max Factor's or Bourjois', so I was looking for a new one to try.

The texture is quite light and doesn't feel heavy on your face, it holds my makeup on my face all day and is a really good base for makeup. It reminds me a little bit of Maybelline's Baby Skin Primer, except not as thick. It does moisturise my face well,  however, I wouldn't say it mattifies my look. It is more of a moisturising primer, than a mattifying one but I still like it. My face feels even smoother and it goes well with whatever foundation I choose to use.

Would I buy it again? It is a good primer but I don't love it, it is a good quality primer for its price of £7.99 and does set a great base for my makeup. I was just a little bit disappointed that it doesn't really mattify my makeup look, so it doesn't do as it claims on the packaging. This may just be me and my skin, but it wasn't for me. It hasn't put my off trying more of L'Oreal primers in the future and I will definitely continue to try their products.

Makeup Revolution Blush Palette Golden Sugar

Hello lovelies,

Sorry for the lack of blogging but my dissertation completely took over my life this month and now I am happy to say it is done so I will definitely be blogging more. Over the couple of months that I have been doing my dissertation, I have had a couple of shopping breaks and during one of them I picked up the Makeup Revolution Blush Palette Golden Sugar.  I have wanted it for ages and as soon as I saw it in the shops I knew I had to get it!

Nip + Fab

Lately, I have been seeing a lot about Nip + Fab in magazines, on Instagram and from other bloggers. It has become quite big lately, as Kylie Jenner has become their ambassador which has obviously raised their profile. When I saw that Boots had reduced Nip + Fab products down to half price, I knew this would be the perfect time to try them out. It was as if it was meant to be and how could I not resist...

Nip + Fab has such a variety of products that it made it hard to choose what to buy. There were products from the Dragon's Blood, Bee Sting, Viper Venom and Glycolic range. The Bee Sting products said on the packaging do not use if allergic to bee stings, which made me not want to buy it as I have never been stung by a bee. Viper Venom is another one I avoided because I hate snakes and anything to do with them. I went for products from the Dragon's Blood and Glycolic range, and I am so happy with what I got.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub (£9.95)

I always go for a face scrub whenever I try out a new face brand, as you can never really go wrong with face scrubs. I have been using it for over a month now and am very happy with the effects, it is the full package. The scrub smells amazing, works like a charm and my skin feels as soft as a baby's.

It took me a really long time to place what the smell of the scrub was and what product it reminds me of, then it hit me. It reminds me of Neutrogena's Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Scrub, which I love so I was even more happy that I bought the scrub.

The grapefruit scent is divine and so refreshing, my skin smells wonderful after using it! I get why Kylie Jenner raves about the Glycolic range so much and the range deserves a lot of recognition for how amazing it is. It exfoliates like a charm and helps get rid of all impurities on your face, it leaves you with a soft and fresh face. My pores have not looked this good in a really long time and I have Nip + Fab to thank for it. I could not recommend this product more and it is a God send!! I have a new favourite face scrub that actually does what the packaging says, Nip + Fab have a winner with this product.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser (£7.95)

I bought the cleanser to go with the face scrub and am so glad I did, the Glycolic range is fantastic and pairs very well with the scrub. The cleanser also has the amazing grapefruit scent, which is one of my favourite fragrances. I use it all the time and have barely made a dent in it, which is great as it will last me a very long time and meaning I won't have to buy another one anytime soon.

My skin looks softer, more radiant, youthful, healthy and just brighter. The cleanser works really well and using it with the scrub makes it even better I think. I can definitely see myself buying more from this range and repurchasing the cleanser + scrub.

Nip + Fab Dragons Blood Fix Mask (£14.95)

The name of this product is awesome, it sounds fierce and like it would live up to its potential. I was really excited to try out the mask and it suggests you leave it on for 10 minutes, but it can be left on for more time depending on your skin type. This mask is really refreshing and helps plump up my skin to give me bright and healthy complexion. I tend to leave it on for 10 minutes but sometimes more, it easily washes off and the after-effect is amazing. I would definitely recommend you use it if your skin is feeling dry or a bit dull, it genuinely does help bring it back to life and it feels so soft. The softness alone is a reason why I will be repurchasing it once it runs out and I 100% want to try the rest of this range.

Overall I have absolutely loved trying out Nip + Fab and it is safe to say I am a fan of the brand. It certainly lives up to the hype and it is worth every penny! I really like the packaging of the products, it really helps the brand stand out and make it more noticeable on the shelves.
