No7 Glitter Nail Effect

‘Whether you’re looking for a matte textured nail, or glittery top coats, No7’s new range of Nail Effects has the top coat for you!Glitter Ball and Sun Rays are multi sized glitters that can be used for creative nail looks, or layered up for a full on glitter effect.’

Today i got this Glitter nail polish, its in the colour ‘Glitter Ball’ which i find such a nice name for a nail polish. It looks like just a silver glitter nail polish but it has these little blue glitter in the bottle as well. Whats great about glitter nail polishes is that they go with just about any colour.  You can wear glitter on just the tip, all over the nail or just on one nail as the accent nail. This glitter effect nail polish also comes in the colour Sun Rays which is a gold nail polish. I read reviews on the site that this nail polish chips easily, i recommend putting a top coat on the top to hold the glitter in place. Overall i love this product and i only have a few glitter nail polishes and i love them all as they make your nails look so nice for special occasions or every day.

You can pick this up from boots for £7.00 here in the shade Glitter Ball

No7 Stay Perfect – Eye Shadow

‘No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow Trio delivers high impact colour. Blends effortlessly and lasts for hours.’

Today’s in the advent calendar i got another No7 eye shadow which i was happy about as i loved the last one i got! I got the lightest shade in cappuccino today and its this nice light shimmery colour. It goes so well with the other one i got which is the middle shade in Good Earth. These eye shadows are so blend-able and pigmented, you can easily build them up and use them alone or together to create nice smokey eyes etc. I’m happy i got these two shades in the advent calendar as they work so well together and you can create a nice eye look with them. I think for the price of these No7 trio’s you get a lot as you get 3 amazing shades that all work together or on their own and also they are so pigmented and easy to apply.

You can pick this up from boots for £9.50 here in the shade Cappuccino

It’s not long till Christmas! Are you excited?

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 Beautiful Skin – Radiance Exfoliator

‘No7 Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator.’

Today I got this little exfoliator which I’m happy about as i normally use the Sanctuary Radiance Exfoliator but I use it sparingly as it’s quite expensive and i want it to last as long as i can make it. I used this on my face this morning, you apply it to damp skin and gently massage it into your skin then you wash away with warm water. It left my face feeling smooth and it smells nice, a little also goes a long way. You can feel the difference with the first use and its also easy to clean off the skin. I also love how the beads in these do not hurt your skin as I’ve used an exfoliator once and it scratched my face! This product doesn’t dry or irate your skin and it’s aimed at Normal to Dry skin types. I also really like the packaging of this product, it has a cute pastel pink lid and the pink beads show through giving it this dainty cute look.

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

No7 High Shine Lip Crayon

‘Provides a gorgeous glossy lip colour in a crayon format which is really easy to wear.’

When i first opened the little advent door i thought ‘oh no this isn’t going to suit me’ i put the lip crayon on and it’s such a subtle yet nice colour and gives a ‘your lips but better’ colour! I don’t wear lipstick as my lips get dry easily and I’m forever putting lip balm on them but I’m defiantly going to wear this over the christmas period! I’m surprised by how much i love the shade as it’s not too in your face and looks so nice against skin colour. You don’t get much lip crayon but when i run out i will be repurchasing it, i also looked at boots and theirs a few shades I’ve seen that i like so fingers crossed there’s another one in the advent calendar! This lip crayon is not too drying on your lips as I’ve worn it today while at uni and it just feels like a lip balm but with colour.

I think this is in the shade ‘Daydreamer’

You can pick this up at boots for £9

Boots Botanics Review

beauty product review

I went to boots the other day with my mum and saw the Boots Botanics were on offer and decided to pick up some and try them out.

Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing solution

‘Dissolves make up, unclogs pores and removes impurities’

I don’t wear make up so i don’t know if it does the job of removing it but for unclogging pores it does a good job! My face felt nice and soft after and didn’t feel sticky like some cleansing solutions do. It doesn’t have a smell to it which I’m a little disappointed about as i like fruity smelling products. If you are looking for a cheap cleansing solutions or a dupe of miracle water i would recommend this.

This is on offer in boots and you can get it here.

Skin Calming Day Cream

‘Soothes, protects and hydrates for sensitive skin’

This product has had mixed reviews on their website but i like this day cream and it hasn’t irrerated my skin or broke me out. It feels nice on the skin and soaks in fast, it smells also smells alright. It isn’t heavy or the skin or greasy feeling which is great as i hate using moisturisers that feel horrible on your skin or don’t dry into your skin. The packaging is nice and stands out.

This is on offer in boots and you can get it here.

I might do an updated review on it after using it for a month to see if it is a good product if you would like to see that.
