The beauty buffs among you will know that Rodial and Nip + Fab are sister companies, with Rodial being the high end (and more expensive) older sister, and Nip + Fab being the fun loving younger sibling with mass-market appeal. Both brands are fantastic in their own right, and I wanted to show you some of their latest releases today…
Rodial have recently added two new items to their makeup range – the Instaglam Contouring Powder in Dark and the Instaglam Banana Powder…
Starting with the Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder in Dark (£52.00) – I’m a massive fan of the original Instaglam Contouring Powder – you can see me wearing it here. It’s the perfect cool taupe contour shade for my fair complexion. Rodial are now offering the same fantastic product in a darker shade with reddish undertones, perfect for those with deeper complexions.
And they have also just launched their Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder (£52.00) – this multi-use powder is perfect to use as a matte highlighter, along with the Contouring Powder to enhance the shape of the face. The formula is wonderful for minimizing fine lines and imperfections for a shine-free complexion and a natural, flawless finish. The Banana Powder is also fantastic as a matte setting powder to help reduce oiliness, or perfect to use for ‘baking’ the face.
In skincare, I have their new SUPER ACIDS X-Treme Hangover Mask (£45.00 at ASOS) – this is a triple action clay mask designed to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and leave you with a radiant looking complexion. It contains Pronalen Fruit Acid to gently exfoliate and eliminate dead skin cells, Laracare helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and Biotilys Probiotic Technology to help mattify shine, improve hydration and boost radiance. This is the perfect ‘recovery’ clay face mask to revitalise tired looking skin and draw out impurities.
Now on to Nip + Fab, their Bee Sting Fix Toning Pads (£12.95 at ASOS) really are amazing. Perfect for refreshing and cleansing, these pads contain Bee Venom which acts as a natural botox to increase blood circulation and plump the skin, whilst filling fine lines and wrinkles. Witch Hazel and Propolis repairs broken skin, tightens pores and deep cleanses the complexion of daily dirt, helping to boost skin clarity and the effectiveness of products to follow, and Allantoin provides a natural protectant for the skin and encourages cell generation.
The Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme (£14.95 at ASOS) contain Nip + Fab’s highest level of glycolic acid (5%) as well as salicylic acid, to exfoliate the skin, refine pores, brighten the complexion and de-congest the skin through the improvement of the skin’s natural exfoliation process. It also includes Lactic Acid to remove dead cells and toxins from the skin, and Hyaluronic Acid for improved hydration.
And lastly the Dragon’s Blood Fix Hyaluronic Shot (£24.95 at ASOS) – perfect for dry skin, this product is designed to intensely and deeply hydrate, leaving a soft, plump complexion. Dragons Blood is in fact a sap found in the Croton Lechleri tree in the Amazon, it works to protect and heal the skin from outside aggressions, preventing environmental damage and motivating skin cell regeneration, as well as inhibiting inflammation and reducing redness. The formula also contains Hyaluronic Acid to instantly plump the appearance of the complexion. I love that the Dragons Blood Hyaluronic Fix Shot can be used directly onto the skin, or mixed with other products for a double ‘shot’ of hydration and plumping action!
