So I’ve got my No 7 Spring products. As I already said, this is one of my favourite Spring 2011 makeup collections, I loved everything in it. So I’ve got myself an eye shadows palette and 2 lipsticks.
Let’s start with an eye shadow palette (£12.50)
The design is very cute and pretty, I love it, perfect for spring!
I had to get this palette not only because it is so pretty but because I don’t really have such shades and it is nice to have a palette of beautiful pastels.
There are 4 shades:
- a nude beige which you can use as a base and to even out the skin tone on your lids
- a subtle coral
- beautiful pastel turquoise
- sea foam green, the brightest shade
All the shades are slightly shimmery and have a nice texture, they are not chalky as a lot of pastel eye shadows.
I’d say that
I believe that good makeup brushes are pricey but you do have them for years if you take a good care after them. But I was curious to try some Boots No7 brushes so I’ve bought quite a few and I even reviewed some of them here and here.
Today I will tell you about my favourite No7 brush which is their Smokey Eyeliner brush (£6.64) which you could have seen in this post.
So why do I like it so much?
When I don’t have time, and let’s face it, this often happens in the morning, to do my makeup – I use dark brown eye pencil, smudge it, apply mascara and that’s it for the eyes. This is why this brush works amazing for me!
It is firm but
I have three products from the amazing Lisa Eldridge’s N07 makeup collection for Spring 2012 to show you.
No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter (10g £13), No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush (2g, £10) in Blooming Pink, bright hot pink and No7 Vital Brights Lipstick (3.5g, £10) in Blooming Pink, hot pink.
I was really excited about the bright pink blush and lipstick when I first saw them. And, let me tell you, both are even better than I’ve hoped they’d be!
I will start with the lipstick as it is my favourite item. It it a perfect bright, hot and vibrant blue based pink which gives a nice glossy texture. The shade is buildable, you can blot it out for a sheer effect or layer it up for a stunning full on colour.
I really like the lipstick’s formula, it is like a
I am loving the Lisa Eldrige’s Midnight Enchantment Makeup Collection for No7 which was inspired by Tim Burton’s work. The shades and design really captures his work if you ask me .
Midnight Enchantment Blusher, 10g, £13.00.
Midnight Enchantment Eye Palette, 7.2g, £13
Midnight Enchantment Eyeshadow Stick, 1.6g. £10.50
Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.
I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.
To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose. From
