The Beauty Game-Changer: NIOD Photography Fluid, Opacity 12%
Every so often, a new beauty product comes along and proves to be a complete and utter game changer – and the intriguing NIOD Photography Fluid has turned out to be just that.
A liquid highlighter that is the closest thing to a real-life Instagram filter you’re ever likely to find, this wonderful product imparts a subtle glow that will leave you positively radiant – but far from being exactly what it says on the tin, the katePhotography backdrops goes above and beyond.
Not only does it do the job of your usual highlighter to an extremely high standard, but its light-refracting prisms, tone and hue correctors and topical photo-finishing technologies serve to obliterate redness and imperfection, making for a pretty flawless finish all round.
Serum-like in texture, it’s a light-weight formula that can be worn under any base product, serving as a primer and highlighter simultaneously.. It turns out that it’s pretty adept at keeping your makeup in place for longer too, but unlike your usual pressed powder, this one will give you a dewy, airbrushed finish, smoothing out fine lines and disguising pores like nothing else I have tried.
To take full advantage of the radiance it provides, I find it works best with dewy or radiance-boosing foundations like Nars Sheer Glow or Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow. For added staying power, layer it on top of your usual primer – and pop an extra dab on top of your foundation for added wow-factor. The bottle comes with a dropper-style applicator, with just a few drops getting the entire job done.
At just £20 a pop, I’d say this one is a bit of a steal. If naturally perfect looking skin is your bag then stock up now for a truly angelic glow.
