Hope you are all looking forward to the bank holiday weekend, I know I am as I’m going on a little weekend adventure tomorrow and I’m so excited I’m definitely going to be sharing this all with you.
So on my shopping trip at the Birmingham Bull Ring I checked out there Boots and noticed a 3 for 2 offer on the No7 brand, I’m pretty new to this brand this year so I wanted to try out some things as they do have quite a lot of dupes.
Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter £9.95
With highlighters I always go for the pearly pink colours as these are more natural but I thought this would look good for when I go for the more bronzed sun kissed look in the summery months.
As for the packaging It comes in a big chubby stick with a twisted bottom, when applied to the cheeks it just glides on smoothly with a nice build able golden colour which I then blend in using my finger as I can’t see a brush working well with this kind of formula. This has a decent amount of lasting power for me throughout the day from 8 -10 hours. As I don’t own a Clinique Chubby Stick I can’t give much comparison but in looks wise, a very good cheaper alternative.
Shimmer Palette Rose £13.50
This is a new product that caught my eye and I’m so glad I bought it because it has been my everyday staple ever since, the packaging is a lovely metallic rose gold compact with a mirror with 4 sparkling stripes in a mixture of bronzed/pink tones, this also comes in ‘Caramel’ but I liked the look of the ‘Rose’. You can either swirl all the colours together or use them individually for your eyes and cheeks. I personally like to use all the colours in one on my cheeks and it gives you the most beautiful glowing cheeks with a hint of shimmer in there. It’s really easy to blend and very pigmented so you don’t need too much.
Stay Perfect Shade And Define £8.00
I love products that help make my morning routine faster and that have a good lasting power so I don’t have to worry about what a mess I’m going to look like after my lunch break, so this eyeshadow stick which does stay on my eyes all day without creasing and without a primer may I add has become my new favourite thing to wear at the moment, I chose a nice light gold colour called ‘Glistening Ray’ as this has a more natural tone for my green eyes. The packaging is in a pen style with a twist up crayon applicator which looks very similar to the By Terry eyeshadow sticks most likely a dupe. I glide this onto my eyelids and then blend out the crease with a brush just to neaten it up a bit but it’s also good for adding in some colour to the inner corners of your eyes. It comes in a variety of 8 shimmery colours. One thing I was very impressed about was when you buy a pointed crayon and it has a nice tip but then eventually wears down to a blunt dome which you can’t do much defining with, well if you pull the bottom off you get a nice little sharpener that sorts that problem out, seriously what’s not to love about this product. I’d highly recommend it.
