I have always been a fan of Nip + Fab and with new additions to the best selling Viper Venom collection, I could not wait to try them.
The packaging is black and green to mirror venom and I have admit these colours do not currently feature on my beauty cabinet, they are usually light, white or pastel with rose gold seeping through. By having something a bit different amongst all my makeup I actually found I used it more because it did not blend in with everything else. Note to self...insert colour into beauty routine.
So in the Viper Venom range there are two new additions:
Micro Blur Fix
This see through gel is thick and has a slightly rough texture which I believe helps keep your makeup up in place for longer, well that's what I thought it did anyway. When you use the gel its goes on easily and melts into your skin leaving no residue, which is fab. It was definitely a good primer but I am not sure if there was much blurring going on which was one of the products promises but maybe I just have such smooth skin...HA. Anyway it did provide a pretty flawless selfie when it came to taking a photo and thats all the matters in this vain vain world!
Getting into the nitty gritty details there are some pretty high-tech sounding ingredients including
- SYN-AKE which helps smooth out all the wrinkles.
- Liftonin-Xpress which reduces the appearance of those pesky pores.
- Aesthetic enhancing polymers which helps to try and create a soft focus finish and reduce shine.
A little tip, when you use Micro Blur Fix pay attention to your t-zone as that is where your skin is usually more oily and allow it to absorb before you apply makeup, a minute or two will do. Micro Blur Fix retails at £19.95.
So my frown lines are not so much of a worry for me, it is the ones on my forehead and in-between my eyes that are the problem!!!! It is ok though because Nip + Fab are here with this little peach or in other words 'Frown Fix' and it works on all expression lines (that's better than saying wrinkles, right?!)
Again this product has the magic ingredient of SYN-AKE which some how freezes lines for a smooth finish. I really like the fact it come in a brush pen as it is so much easier to use and with it's compact size you can easily pop it in your handbag to blur away those lines throughout the day. Again there is more funky sounding ingredients which magical sounding properties:
- SYN-AKE which helps relax your expression lines.
- GRANT-X that reduces lines and wrinkles and also boosts collagen production.
- Hyaluronic Acid that hydrates the skin.
