NuBo Voile is a silky soft fluid which is halfway between ultra sheer base and serum. It can be used under foundation as a primer, or alone as a sheer veil for the skin. Packaged in the usual glamourous NuBo shiny pink with studded accents, it certainly looks high end - and at £40 for 10ml, it's definitely priced for the high end market.
So, what does it do?
A small puddle of product goes a long way on the skin - this stuff is chock-full of silicone and feels incredibly silky. It dries down to a soft, powdery finish which adds radiance and smoothness, and eliminates shine. There's very little by way of pigmentation or coverage though - this is #1, described as "nude", aimed at pale skins. In many ways, this stuff reminds me of Giorgio Armani's Face Fabric, which also has the silky texture, but goes a little way further to offer coverage.
If you're looking for coverage, this product would be best used as a primer. If your skin is in pretty good nick, though, and you're just looking for a natural but polished look, this stuff is great - it leaves the skin matte but radiant and looking very smooth and healthy. Essentially - this is probably best for those looking to improve the visible texture of the skin, rather than normalising colour or tone.
I really enjoy using this product on mornings when I miraculously wake up with skin that looks pretty fresh - which isn't all that often. That's probably why my 10ml tube has lasted me a fair few months so far. If I were to use it every day, though, I strongly suspect it'd run down within a month (or at most two) - and at £40 a tube, that's a fairly eye-watering prospect. Still - if you're looking for improved texture and you quite like a luxe product, this is worth a try.
Find it at BeautyBay online, or in store at Harrods, where a 10ml tube will cost you £40; Voile is available in a variety of shades from transparent to tan to suit all complexions. What do you think? Tried this? Rather use a foundation with more coverage? Let us know in the comments!
