NcInc – Beauty Review

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, you beauty queens out there will know that Distribeauty have stopped working with Elf cosmetics and that the UK website is more or less empty of products until Elf USA get the new site up in a couple of months. Well, I needed new mineral supplies….and they had none. This is what led me to discover the brand ncinc on ebay.

For around £24 I got a large foundation, the Miracle Veil, Finishing powder, blush and an eye shadow. My order arrived in cute black organza bags, with a free mini foundation thrown in too.

So, the first plus about this company – good sized products, affordable & good value, great packaging and excellent customer service. Very fast delivery too.

First up…the foundation. Available in various sizes and various combo deals, this also comes in a really good selection of shades.

A handy leaflet comes with you order…and on it, it does say less is more. Build up your coverage gradually, it should be barely visible on the brush. It goes on nicely and gives pretty satisfactory results. At this point I made the wrong choice and applied the miracle veil (which can go on under or over the foundation), followed by the finishing powder. All of this is too much and made my face looked caked up. I’d say choose to use either the Miracle Veil or the Finishing powder, but maybe not both unless your application is very, very light.

The Miracle Veil helps your skin to feel soft and ready for more make up. It also absorbs excess oil to keep your skin matte and fresh. A lovely product.

The Finishing powder sets your foundation nicely. Again, it helps to keep the shine at bay and offers a flawless finishing touch.

Here’s where things fall down a little. The blush comes in one shade only, is difficult to blend and does not give a blush effect. I would expect to see some pinks and plums here…..this blush just looks like a darker foundation and doesn’t do anything for me. More colours and choice, please.

All in all, I was impressed. I like the eye shadow too and will be trying more colours. I’d also like to try a few more of their other products and see what their brushes are like.

you can buy starter kits, foundation & brush kits, single products and lots more. Why not check out this new, affordable brand today?
