Nouba – The Italian Make Up Brand From Andrea Brambilla

We all love discovering new make up especially items that are good quality and long lasting.  I’ve just tried some great products from an Italian make up brand called Nouba which I thought you might also be interested in hearing about.

Nouba make-up was founded by makeup artist Andrea Brambilla in Italy.  The range includes long lasting foundations, loose powders, eyeshadow palettes and lip creams.  These products do not contain parabens, gluten and paraffins and have been dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, making them inclusive of all skin types.

Volumaxi Sculpting Mascara

This is one of the best mascaras I have tried. It’s easy to apply thanks to the large applicator, gives a good coverage from base to tip, minimises clumping thanks to the numerous bristles and the shape of the brush helps curl longer lashes as it is being applied.  Once on it stays put and doesn’t smudge.  The mascara contains marine derived elastine, glycogen, and collagen which stimulate the regeneration and growth of eyelashes.  This mascara makes the eyes so much more noticeable for all the right reasons.

Millebaci Long Lasting Lip Cream

Their best selling product range is the ‘Millebaci’ lip creams which are available in 25 lovely shades and offer a superfluid formula with exceptionally high pigment colour to give long-lasting professional results.

The long lasting lip cream (No 7 pictured above) is not only highly pigmented but also demonstrates tremendous staying power and has a feather light feel.  This keeps lips feeling soft and silky all day long and looking perfect for hours no matter how many glasses of water / tea / cocktails you drink.  This will last all day and night you won’t need to reapply.  You’ll need an oil based product like baby oil to remove the product and might find that there is still a little stain remaining.  I’d probably go for a more nude tone for daily wear but the bright red is great for an evening out.

Noubamore Second Skin Foundation

I gave the bottle a good shake prior to each application then I would use a couple of drops on my finger tips and spread this evenly over my face and neck.  I loved that this was easy to use with a squeezy bottle and narrow opening to prevent waste.  You don’t need much to give a flawless looking skin that continues to look great all day.  It feels incredibly light on the skin allowing it to breathe and doesn’t clog the pores.  Even in this unusually warm weather the foundation stayed in place which was great.  I may have felt like I was melting but my foundation showed no tale tale signs – evidence of a great quality product.

I loved using all of the Nouba products and think that they make great alternatives to other high-end makeup brand giving fans of brands such as NARS and MAC cosmetics more options when looking for beauty products.

The complete collection of Nouba makeup products is available exclusively at Beauty Base online and in their retail stores across the London and the South East.

Have you tried any Nouba products before?
