Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix


Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix Light Beauty Review

Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix in Light* Was £9.99 Now £6.66

If you've been reading my blog for a little while then you might know that I've not had the greatest amount of luck when it comes to finding CC (Colour Correcting) products that match my incredibly pale skin tone. I've previously reviewed two CC Creams; one from Beauty UK (review here) and one from La Roche-Posay (link here) but both were just a little too dark for me despite being very impressive products. As soon as I twisted the base of this pen applicator and saw the shade that was being dispensed I could quite easily see that my CC related prayers had been answered. I mean just look at the fantastic colour match!

Nip + Fab CC Eye Fix Beauty Review Swatch Light

(From left to right: product as dispensed - product swatched and blended)

This isn't just your typical CC product. Whilst CC normally stands for Colour Correcting, as I've mentioned above, Nip + Fab's CC stands for Complexion Corrector and this is because this product is essentially three products in one. First of all, it works like a concealer to cover dark circles. Now this isn't the thickest of concealers so please bear that in mind if you are looking for high coverage but don't let that put you off at all. This is so light and has two additional benefits (of which I'm just about to reveal) that it doesn't look heavy or caked on at all even when you apply it over your normal concealer.

This Eye Fix has light diffusing pigments which basically means it brightens the eyes and gives your skin a soft focus finish. It works a lot like the YSL Touche Eclat when used on it's own or over your usual concealer. Much like YSL's Touche Eclat, you can also use Nip + Fab's CC Eye Fix to highlight other areas of your face such as the top of your cheekbones or down the ridge of your nose. As if that wasn't exciting enough, this CC Eye Fix also promises to work as an eye cream. This is probably the aspect of this product that is the most difficult to put to the test, especially as I'm only in my early twenties but it does promise to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Those claims may take a little while to really assess but I have no doubt that I'll be using this CC Eye Fix for months, if not years, to come. After basically finding my perfect match when it comes to the shade of this CC product, I definitely can't wait to try out their CC Cream. I feel like I might have found the go-to shade for all my fellow pale skinned ladies. What do you think? Nip + Fab's CC products are also available in medium and dark shades too.

Do you like the idea of this CC Eye Fix product? Have you tried any of Nip + Fab's CC range? If so, what do you think of the products?

  2. Love the idea of this! I used to have a loreal pen corrector like this and could not bring myself to fork out for a YSL version. May have to try! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  3. This sounds lovely, I struggle with finding shades pale enough for me but the colour actually looks like it'd be natural. I love that it's multipurpose too, and It's so much cheaper than Touche Eclat! xx
