Complexion Corrector Cream
I try not to fall for the hype that can surround new products as they get released onto the shelves . You can so often fall into the trap of reading a lot of blogs raving about a product, run out and buy it , only to find it doesn't suit you.
However, I do really like some of the Nip and Fab products and I find the pricing more accessible than some ranges. So when I heard that the new BB on the street was a Complexion Corrector I thought it would be worth a go . I love my Dr. Jarts BB and it would take a lot for me to change this , but I am nearing the end of a tube and this Nip and Fab product retails at over £10 less a tube so worth a look at least. You can buy Nip and Fab products here.
Boots have an offer on where you get the two products cheaper if you purchase them together. The second product is to conceal dark circles and to brighten the eye area.
So my verdict?
I would say that I can tell why it is £10 cheaper than the Dr. Jarts! Dr Jart's premium BB is being sold at Boots for £16 instead of the usual £24 at the moment here.
This range comes in two shades, light and dark. They do not adjust to your skin tone so if you want a darker or lighter shade you are advised to buy both and to mix the products to get the desired colour.
It is much thicker than a regular BB cream and sits fairly heavily on the skin. I also found it gave an orangey tinge to my skin, even though I opted for the light option. It "sat" on my cheeks where I tend to have drier skin and looked dull and non reflective.
However, the concealer stick was a different class altogether. I found this a handy tool for covering dark circles and because the product has a thicker texture it does the job of concealing well. However, I have other products like my Mac concealer that also do the job as well if not better.
I feel a little disappointed in this product , although like all things you will probably find another person raving about it. It is often down to personal preference and skin type. I have combination skin and I don't need a heavy coverage on a daily basis , so for me it was just too much and dried on my skin.
I shall be remaining loyal to my Dr. Jarts BB for some time yet I feel. However , I do have a Nip and Fab product that I am using that I love and I will be reviewing next Wednesday for you! Amazing if you want something to tighten up a few wrinkles before putting on your make up........
I have also been brave and booked myself a Bobbi Brown make up session later in February to revamp my make up routine . I have been using a fabulous Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and am interested to experiment with some new colours. I will report back and post a photo before and after if I am brave enough!
