I haven’t tried all that much from No7 so when I was sent the above products I was excited to try them out for a review. My feelings are very mixed and I’m not sure whether I’m sold on going out and purchasing anything but let’s do a little run down, shall we?
Eyeshadow Trio in Organza – £9.50
This is a tricky one because the colours are SO not me.. to be honest I’m not sure who would choose these in 2013.. they don’t feel particularly modern but perhaps as a brown eyed girl I look at them differently. I did give them a go to test the texture and longevity and they were nice enough but they’re on the higher end side in Boots and for a little less you can get a quad from the Revlon Colorstay range which I personally prefer – they’re on offer at £5.99 right now too!
Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil in Brown – £6.50
Again I’m going to have to be negative here.. I don’t know if I got a bad example but this is so difficult to use. It’s too dry and hard so in order to get colour on your eye you have to push and pull and drag and none of that is good. I haven’t managed to get much from this regardless of how hard I press (even on my hand) so I can’t recommend it but like I say maybe this was a bad one.. if you love it let me know in the comments. I do love the spongey blending tip however.. often they’re too stiff and rubbers but this is just lovely so it’s not a total waste.. I’ve been using it to blend my Rimmel Scandaleyes pencils.
Extreme Length Extend Mascara in Black – £12.95
So we’ve covered the bad and the ugly but I wanted to end on the good.. and for a mascara to fit in to that category is extra impressive as I am super picky with mascara. My lashes are just rubbish so they need length, definition and volume.. something I’ve discovered not many products are capable of providing in one tube. You’re not going to get MEGA volume from this but it’s buildable, doesn’t look clumpy and doesn’t flake. It’s more than I’d usually like to pay for a mascara so we’ll see if I repurchase once this runs out but so far I am very happy with it and the tiny rubber bristles work really well for my lower lashes too!
I will leave you with my recent video review of the Extreme Length Extend.. if you’d like to see the comments and what other people are saying about it click this link to visit the video page – don’t forget to subscribe while you’re there so you don’t miss out on future reviews!
Do you have any No7 recommendations if i was to try something else?
