Nip+Fab CC Cream SPF 30 in Lightis a thick cream with pink undertones. It's also available in Dark. If you've used Nip+Fab products before you'll know the smell, it's a fresh, kind of cucumber scent. Once on the face the smell fades. I'd say this is definitely medium coverage, it covers much better than standard BB creams, so anyone who doesn't like the sheerness of some BBs should be happy with CC coverage.
Nip+Fab CC Cream is quite a funny product. Initially it feels like it's blending well on the face then blam it just stops moving and sets. I'm reasonably fast at putting a base on so it's not down to my slowness. Once it stops being pliable it's a bit of a pain, it clumps a bit but with perseverance you will get a flawless coverage. That's really my only gripe about it, otherwise it's pretty nice. I have an oily t-zone and super-sensitive skin at the moment and this CC hasn't irritated my skin or induced oiliness. In fact, I could probably get away with wearing no powder but it's a habit to put it on now. It also feels really light on the skin, which is was surprised with considering it's quite thick.
I'm not sure about the light-diffusing properties of this. I found it quite matte but it did have a bit of luminosity and produced a nice, fresh complexion. It's been hydrating my skin nicely from the cold and heating, and it's got good sun protection. So, I don't love it but I think it's pretty good.
