You know when Boots starts giving out the £5 off No. 7 vouchers, it’s a killer. The last few times I haven’t paid any attention to it, but because I was in need of a cheap and cheerful boost for Spring, I traded my vouchers in for four new nail polishes! I chose Cheeky Chops 240, Beanie 20, Tangy 220 & Stand Back 300! Random I know. All of these polishes have a cream finish….
Boots No. 7’s limited edition collection is inspired by the glamour and white washed beaches of 1970s St Tropez. I think it is so-so-so pretty and VERY inspired by Paul & Joe, no? Maybe that’s why I like it! Here is the LE range available from 26th January to 22nd March 2011: Included is: 1. Spring Limited Edition Eye Palette £12.50 2. Limited Edition Gel Eyeliners in Blue, Black and Turquoise. (Oh my god. I […]
Boots No. 7’s Autumn offering is a Smörgåsbord of goodies, featuring their new Exceptional Definition mascara, and some other pieces. I have the Limited Edition Eye Palette, the Soft Matte Finish Lipstick, Smoky Eyeliner and Matte Topcoat. First up is their limited soft matte lipstick which comes in two shades, a plum and a nude. This promises to give a pigmented finish with added hydration. I have the Plum Rebellion, which I have to say […]

I was sent some bits and pieces from the Boots No 7 collection called the Sun Drenched Collection. There’s the Bronzer, the Eyeshadow Quad and Sun Drenched 22ct lip gloss. The packaging is very golden: The Sun Drenched Collection is Limited Edition…. The quad is a bronzy combination of brown, gold, bronze and silver. The bronzer is completely matte and has variations of bronze, and the lip gloss is a sheer peach with some gold […]
Do you wear SPF on your lips? I’ve noticed that my lips dry out even quicker than normal in this kind of weather but I prefer some colour over just plain lip balm so I am on the look out for lipsticks and glosses that have SPF. This new Liplicious Moisturizing Balm from Boots No. 7 scared me when it landed on my doormat! Purple Liquorice is a deep purple infused with glitter. Its actually […]

I love cleansers! Cream type, Balm type, Foam type, Gel type, Oil type – it doesn’t actually matter what type but if it looks good I will give it a go. I’ve been trying out more things from Boots No. 7 Skincare lately and I think its pretty decent stuff especially the newer ranges (Protect & Perfect and Life & Luminate). One of their newer additions is the Hot Cloth Cleanser, similar to the other […]
I am officially obsessed with foundation. I can’t help it. I love a good base. Up for review is this Boots No. 7 Lift & Luminate Foundation – Boots No. 7 has release a skincare range called Lift & Luminate (which I have started testing and like a lot) and this foundation is part of the set! This is a lifting and firming foundation with a natural glow. They say: Skin looks and feels instantly […]
I’ve been sitting on the Limited Edition Spring collection from No. 7 for a while…but now its time for a review! Here is the collection – its fairly small, a highlighter, two lipsticks and an eyeshadow quad. . Oh metallic packaging. You are such a pain to photograph: Here is the shell like turquoise packaging. I loved the look of this in print but in person…its little old fashioned. Unless the packaging is supposed to […]
Got some bits and pieces from Boots No. 7 to review shortly, but this was too pretty not to share with you sooner! There are only 2 shades in this lipstick, this rosy sheer red and a more neutral brown-rose. The texture is excellent – pigmented yet sheer, it has that ‘water’ feeling Japanese lipsticks do. The colour is of course, an acquired taste. I like it, I think this would look pretty hot on […]
I am all for affordable (or relatively) affordable but effective skincare. I have a set of SKII skincare in my to use box but I’m to scared to use it – it cost me a fair penny, and if it makes me break out then…its just…too hard to contemplate. My next main dabbling or should I say trial (after Karin Herzog – verdict coming up) may be this – Boots No. 7’s new Lift & […]
For Christmas, Boots No. 7 have launched a small range called Opulence which consists of a highlighter, lipstick and eyeshadow palette. I got the eyeshadow and highlighter. The packaging is kind of 80s retro, no?: Here is the highlighter £13.00. The swatches: Its a glittery highlighter – it is not fine shimmer, its all out GLIT. The coloured patches (in the red and blue) seems to just be an overspray to me as I noticed […]
