Favourite Brush Of The Moment: Boots No7 Smokey Eyeliner Brush. Review and Photos

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!

No7 Spring 2011 Lipsticks in Grace and Brigitte. Review and Lip Swatches

Just when I  saw these new No7 lipsticks I knew that they would be mine, so I had to get both Grace and Brigitte.

This is how the package looks like, gorgeous, right?

The lipsticks feel great on the lips, they have a light formula which is perfect for Spring. They also stay on for a several hours for me and I don’t find them drying. Both colours are gorgeous, but if Grace is very easy to wear, Brigitte is definitely not for everyone.

Here are the swatches of Grace and Brigitte which I’ve compared to the similar lipsticks  from the same price tag which I had around.

So the lipsticks are Grace, Brigitte,

No7 Spring Eye Palette. Review and Swatches

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
