Nip + Fab CC Cream: Not fab in the slightest

Nip + Fab CC Cream

Nip + Fab's CC Cream sure promises a lot.

“More than just a tinted moisturiser” it trumpets! And with hyaluronic acid, light diffusing pigments and SPF 30, the ingredients list sounds very impressive indeed.

It's available in three shades, light, medium and dark – although mine is light, and I'd say it's on the dark side, so paler gals beware.

Coverage is on par with a regular tinted moisturiser. On  my first use it did brighten up my complexion and even out my skintone, and I was happy enough with that for a typical day at the office. I like the natural look these days.

Till I checked my makeup at around 11am and saw it had settled into the pores around my cheeks and looked like a sad and unusual case of face dandruff. Not so natural after all.

You can find this in Boots, but mine came from ASOS where it retails for €19.63 before delivery.

Though if you’re in the market for a CC cream , I’d steer you firmly away from this and towards the Clinique version, which I’ve told you about here, and which impresses me more with each pretender I try.

Still confused about CC creams? This post might help.
