No7 Moisture Drench Mulberry

A few weeks ago Boots had a deal where you could get a free set of No7 goodies if you bought two No7 products.  I needed new mascara so bought two to get my freebies.  One of the free gifts was the No7 Moisture Drench lipstick in Mulberry.  I only own one other lipstick and it happens to be from the same range.  I wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off a lipstick that looks so red but it actually looks ok as it’s not too bright.  The colour is more sheer than it looks in the tube but you can build it up easily enough to a deep colour if that’s what you prefer.  I love that this lipstick feels almost like a lip balm and doesn’t dry my lips out at all.  It’s nice to be able to mix up my makeup a little with brighter than normal lips!

Avon Supershock Mascara

You may know that my favourite ever mascara is the No7 Extreme Length but the Avon Supershock mascara which had was given at Christmas comes a really close second.  (Sorry for the slightly fuzzy photo, I took this before I went out one night so didn’t have very good lighting and forgot to take another one in daylight before the tube ran out!)  The formula is almost identical to the Extreme Length – even though it is supposed to be volumising as opposed to lengthening.  It stays put all day without flaking or smudging under the eye.  The only thing that bothers me slightly is the brush.  It is a similar style to the Extreme Length brush so is really good at separating out lashes but it is quite a bit bigger making it harder to use.  The Supershock mascara is cheaper though and Avon sometimes have some really good deals so I will be looking out for this mascara in the future!

NOTW: Favourites

Last week I decided to go with something simple and just used my two favourite polishes of the moment – Sand Dune by Ciaté and Milan by No7.  They both go on so smoothly and don’t really show up chips too much.  I think they go really well together, what do you think?

NOTW: Gradient Take 2

This gradient worked so much better than the one I tried last week!  I much prefer the colours and I managed to get the gradient a lot smoother.  This time I actually used three colours: No7 Stand Back as the base with Rimmel Green With Envy and No7 Dollar to make the gradient.  What do you think?I’m now off to try and decide how to do my nails for my friends wedding tomorrow (she’s been planning the big day for over a year now and it’s really exciting that it’s finally here!).  I had ordered Nubar 2010 to wear for the wedding but it hasn’t arrived in time which is really annoying!  If you have any suggestions please let me know – I’ll be wearing a navy bridesmaids dress with nude heels.

No7 Extreme Length Mascara

I bought the Extreme Length mascara after finishing my No7  Intense Volume mascara.  I liked the Intense Volume but thought I’d try something different as a change.  I think I prefer the Extreme Length as it seems to give my lashes the same amount of volume as the Intense Volume but it also makes them a bit longer and I find it easier to apply.  I prefer the brush on the Extreme Length which makes it easier to apply the mascara without it clumping.  I would definitely but this mascara again and I think it is really good value, especially if you have one of the No7 vouchers that Boots seem to give out all of the time!  Have you used any No7 mascaras?  Which is your favourite?

No7 Moisture Drench Pink Lemonade

I’ve never really been into wearing colour on my lips and usually just wear one of my excessively many lip balms.  I decided that seeing as I now have my degree (yay!) it was about time that I bought some more “grown up” makeup so I popped into Boots to try and find my first lipstick.  In the end I decided to go for a No7 Moisture Drench lipstick in the shade Pink Lemonade which is a really subtle pink shimmer.
  The main reason I’ve been put off lipstick in the past (aside from the fact that I don’t think I could pull off a bright colour!) is that I had it in my head that lipstick would leave my lips really dry.  So far I’ve not had that problem with the Moisture Drench – it is actually really almost the same as wearing a lip balm.
The Moisture Drench lipsticks cost £10 each but there always seems to be some sort of offer on No7 products!  I really like this lipstick and it’s made me much less scared of trying new colours!

NOTW: Stand Back

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a week since my last post – I can’t wait to have my exams over with! I’ve got a bit behind with my Nails of the Week posts…. I actually wore this a few weeks ago now and was in a rush when I painted my nails so excuse the messiness!  The blue is No7 Stand Back which is a bright matte blue but I topped it with a coat of a really, really old Nails Inc polish I have to give it a bit of shimmer.

NOTW: Patterns

When I painted my nails last week I was just experimenting really but I quite liked the end result so decided to keep it for a few days.  I used four colours; a yellow from 17, Stand Back from the Stay Perfect No7 range and Purple Dream and Dark Purple Glitter from elf.

Which is your favourite design?

NOTW: Milan

I’ve got loads of coursework to do this week so just went for simple nails which only took 5 minutes!  I’m wearing Milan from the No7 Stay Perfect range which is one of my favourite ever nail polishes – it is a lovely colour with just the right amount of sparkle.  I’m only wearing one coat here and it’s already completely opaque.  This polish is a really easy consistency to apply and it dries quickly too.  Has anyone else got Milan?

No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil

For Christmas I was given a No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil in green and I love it!  It has a really creamy texture so is easy to apply quickly without going back over again and rubbing your eye.

It also doesn’t need to be warmed up before you use it and it smudges nicely as well.  I really love the colour which is actually slightly greener in real life than these photos suggest and it is highly pigmented.

I sometimes get itchy eyes when I wear eyeliner which has put me off trying new ones in the past but I’ve had no problems with this one.

I love it so much I think I’ll get a few more colours!
