You may have realised by now, no7 is one of my go to skincare and beauty brands. I find it good quality with lovely packaging, and not too expensive (especially when you have their vouchers).
Although over the past year I’ve moved on from their foundation, I still use their face powder as it’s the best I’ve found, and skincare range. This set was another from Christmas, and it was the perfect selection to make me feel sexy this Valentine’s.
Inside the luxe glittery black box is a Stay Perfect nail polish in Devil’s Delight, Lash Impact mascara in Black, Moisture Drench Lipstick in Pillarbox and Stay Perfect Eyeshadow trio in Cappuccino. There was also a voucher for £3 off their foundation with a colour match.
What did I think?
I already knew I would love the nail polish as I’ve had similar before. I like that the applicator brush is big enough to coat the nail in one stroke. The colour is bold and intense and thick enough that you only need two coats for a glossy finish.
I struggle with red lipsticks as they tend to bleed and look like I’ve had a rough night after one sip of a drink. This one was nice and smooth to apply. The colour is lovely and bright without being ridiculous. I felt it gave me a seductive looking pout, which I love, but it’s definitely more of an evening shade.
I love a nice neutral smokey eye and this eyeshadow trio has the perfect blend of subtle shades, with just the right amount of shimmer.
The mascara is ok, nothing overly special, but I’m fairly happy with my bourjois mascara.
Overall I love this little set, the contents are perfect for my clutch bag on a (rare) night out, and I will be repurchasing the eyeshadow and nail polish. I would mention that the voucher was pretty pointless to be included in a Christmas Gift set as it expired at the end of November… so by the time I opened the set it was too late to use.
