It’s long-wearing formula is perfect for creating a subtle glow, or for contouring the cheekbones, forehead and jawline for a more sculpted, defined look. The blushers are a silky, lightweight powder that blend seamlessly and add a pop of natural-looking colour to your cheeks.  Last but not least is the highlighter that delivers a natural-looking, light-diffusing colour with remarkable pay-off.

Get that ‘lit from within’ golden glow with Nip+Fabs new primer Rose Gold Essence which has been formulated with gold flecks to make skin look radiant, dewy, refreshed and revitalised.  It also acts like a makeup primer, ensuring an even and hydrated base for makeup and when the rose gold flecks disperse, a soft revitalising effect can be seen on the skin. Like the Unicorn Essence you can also apply to the top of your cheek bones and layer  your highlighter on top for the ultimate glow.  This is also looking like the perfect dupe for  FARSÁLI Rose Gold Elixir £50 but again coming in at a very competitive price of just £15…currently on special offer at Superdrug for just £13.
