New No7 Beauty Bits

No7 is a brand that I love but often forget about. Over the past few months I’ve really been enjoying their products and after heading to Boots to repurchase a primer I’d ran out of I ended up leaving with a couple more products than I’d bargained for!

No7 Instant Illusions Rapid Radiance Balm  |  £17

I actually bought this primer months ago and I absolutely loved it at first, but with my constant new beauty buys this ended up at the back of my stash and was completely abandoned. I rediscovered it about a month ago and after falling back in love with it I actually ran out! It looks fairly pink from the swatches but it translates to such a natural glow when applied under foundation. My dry skin has been loving this as it also adds that extra bit of hydration that my skin craves.

I’m a sucker for a foundation and my obsession is getting slightly ridiculous! Nonetheless I couldn’t resist trying their newest addition. Described by No7 as a ‘liquid silk’ foundation, it’s supposed to blur the appearance of lines and pores leaving you looking airbrushed. I’ve worn this over the past couple of days and whilst I can’t give a full review, I’m seriously impressed with it so far. As stated it’s an extremely lightweight foundation and feels weightless on the skin, but the coverage is amazing!

No7 Shimmer Palette ‘Caramel’  |  £13.50

This little beauty was love at first sight. I was originally drawn in by the cute gold packaging but the product itself is stunning. The colours individually are lovely but mixed together they create such a beautiful shade. There’s quite a bit of glitter in it but luckily it’s extremely finely milled so I’m hoping this won’t translate into a glitter ball when it’s on my face!

    I always seem to forget about No.7 too! They’re very good at offering free makeovers though and they always seem to manage to tempt me in. The Shimmer Palette looks beautiful :O

    I haven’t tried that much from N07 – I did fall in love with one of their mascaras. I shamefully purchased it because I liked the packaging, it’s in a gold tube (I forget the name) it’s a really lovely product, your post reminded me of my love for it – however it’s a nightmare to get off! xx

      Ooh I may have to look out for that next time I’m in boots! X
