No7 Intense Volume Mascara 

‘No7 Intense Volume Mascara provides fantastic volume with perfect separation for lusher lashes.’

Today’s little gift was this mini No7 intense volume mascara. It says it creates volume but i found this product helped create length, my eyelashes got longer after using this but not thicker. I must say i prefer the No7 Lash Impact – Intense Volume Control as this mascara created volume and length on my lashes. I also prefer the plastic applicator on mascara wands then to these fiber brushes. This mascara is nice for creating length but i then i would go over them with the other no7 volume mascara to create volume as these two products work together to make your lashes look longer and thicker.

On the site it tell’s you how to use this product:

Step One – Begin by massaging the brush at the roots of your lashes.
Step Two Zig zag up to the tips to achieve maximum length and definition

You can pick this up from boots for £9.95 here.

What’s your favourite mascara?

No7 Essential – Lip Brush

‘No7 Essential Lip Brush is perfect for precise lip definition and colour application.’

Today I got this No7 lip brush. It’s a soft brush and it’s quite bigger then the lip brushes I’ve seen. What i love about this brush is it makes such bright colours wearable for the day, you can build up the colour and make bright colours look less brighter and more wearable. I used a bright pink colour to try this brush out and i just brushed the brush on the lip colour balm (210 Rimmel london) and applied it to my lips and it came out such a nice wearable colour rather than the bright pink it originally was.

You could probably use this brush for your eye makeup to help smudge out colours as it’s a medium size and is soft enough to use on the eyes.

I like this lip brush as I think its multipurpose, if you don’t want to spend £7 for this brush you could always buy another but I really like this brush and how soft it is.

You can pick this up from boots for £7.00 here.

What are your favourite lip brushes and lipsticks?

No7 Stay Perfect – Amazing Eyes Pencil 

‘No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil is a long wearing and silky smooth pencil for amazing colour and definition.’

Today’s little gift in the advent calendar is this eye pencil. Its soft on the skin, easy to apply and comes out dark so you don’t have to keep applying it to get the dark black colour. It lasts for a while, i applied it this morning and when i came to take it off it took ages to remove it so it will stay on your eye’s throughout the day. I must say I’m not a fan out pencil eye liners and prefer gel or liquid but this will be great for the water lines to make your eyelashes look more fuller.

You can pick this up from boots for £6.50 here.

No7 Completely Quenched – Body Lotion 

‘Wrap your skin in head-to-toe luxury with this velvety soft lotion. Light airy and quickly absorbed, it vanishes into thirsty skin to quench and care all day long.’

Today in the advent calendar I got a body lotion. This product smells amazing and the smell sticks to your skin, it also leaves the skin feeling super soft! This body lotion is not oily and sinks into the skin fast so you don’t have to wait around for it to dry. It claims to leave the skin looking healthy and radiant which is nice for the winter weather when your skin goes dry and not the best due to the cold weather. The price is very steep to me as i just go for basic body lotions, I’m also on a budget so i wouldn’t buy this lotion but I’m happy i got it in this calendar as i like trying new products out.

You can pick this up from boots for £8.50 here.

No7  High Shine Lip Crayon

‘No7 High Shine Lip Crayon provides a gorgeous glossy lip colour in a crayon format which is really easy to wear.’

Today in the advent calendar i got another lip crayon! I’m so happy as i really like the other one i got a few days ago, this one is more brighter and is nice on the lips as an everyday colour. I love these lip crayons because i don’t usually wear lipstick and this is more like a lip balm with a tint in it. The first lip colour i got was subtle but this one is a bit more pigmented and comes out this amazing red/purple  shade and it looks amazing. They are also very moisturising and not drying on your lips. If you’re not into lip sticks i would defiantly recommend you buying one of these as they add a hint of colour to your lips. No7 have 8 different shades from light to dark.

You can pick this up from boots for £9.00. I think the colour is ‘Statement’

No7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eyeliner

‘No7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eye Liner features a built in extra-slim brush that is easy to apply; making you eyes stand out with style.’

Today i got the N07 felt tip eyeliner. This has a small tip which is great as when I apply eyeliner I hate it coming out chunky, I like a thin line I can work with to make thicker if needed. The problem with this felt tip is that it doesn’t come out dark, you need to keep going over the line to make it darker. I’m going to use this as an outline and then fill in with my other eyeliner to make it darker and so it stands out more. For £8 I would suggest looking for another eyeliner or trying this out before you buy it. For the tester though I will get as much use out of it because i don’t want to waste the product.

What eyeliner do you use?

You can pick this up from boots for £8.00 here.

No7 Beautiful Skin – Eye Make-Up Remover

‘This gentle dual action formula conditions while it cleanses, removing all traces of eye make-up even waterproof mascara. Fragrance free and suitable for sensitive eyes.’

Today’s little gift in the advent calendar was this eye make- up remover. It comes in this blue-bottle and the liquid is also blue which is a nice change. The product is quite oily which can be a bad thing for certain skin types, but it does the job removing make-up. Even though this product is quite oily it does sink into the skin fast and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. I wear a lot of eyeliner and mascara so taking it off at night can sometimes be a pain so this will be great for getting the bit’s that don’t normally come off with face wipes. The liquid in the bottle separates quite fast so you have to shake it before you use it to mix the liquids up.

You can pick this up from boots for £8.50 here.

No7 Blissful Body Wash

‘It’s rich lather washes away impurities without leaving skin prone to dryness, leaving you with beautifully soft, supple skin.’

Today in the advent calendar i got this body wash. I normally just buy a cheap one from the supermarket as I don’t really go for branded ones, so this will be a nice change. I tested it out this morning and it smells amazing! I must say i also love the packaging of No7 products as they always look so nice and feminine. This body wash claims to be ‘hypo-allerginic’ which is good as there’s nothing worse than using a product that breaks you out, brings you out in a rash or irritates your skin! I’m going to look forward to using instead of my other body wash as this smells amazing and the other one I use doesn’t really have a smell to it.

This product is a little pricy as I normally spend under £3 on body washes/shower gels but I’m going to give this a go and see if it’s different to the cheaper ones I use.

You can pick this up from boots for £7.50 here.

No7 Protect & Perfect – Night Creme

‘No7 Protect & Perfect Night Cream protects young skin to delay first signs of ageing, boost radiance & visibly improves fine lines.’

Today I got a night creme, I have the champneys night creme and I really like that so I’m hoping for good things for this night creme. I know it says ageing in the description but I’m looking past that and just using it as a creme. What I love about No7 products is that they do not smell too strong that have a light scent to them, they are also not heavy on the skin and sink into your skin fast so you don’t have to wait around for them to dry. I can’t really say much about this product as I’ve not had time to use it yet but I will keep you updated.

You can pick this up from boots for £23.00 here.
