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 the colours are sheer but kind of buildable, I say kind of, because you can’t really get an intense colour with such shades.
The shades are pretty wearable and I really like them all, especially the turquoise which gives this fresh and Spring look. But if you think that it is way too much for you, the other 3 shades are much easier to wear.
I liked the application and it’s easy to blend these eye shadows. I haven’t tried to wear theses eye shadows for the whole day yet as the day I’ve put them on I’ve realized that I had to take photos for a document and pastel blue wasn’t really the best choice so I had to take them off and put on some more suitable shades.
Anyway, I would recommend you getting this palette as from what I can see, this whole collection will be sold out pretty soon. Which is not a surprise at all!
