Boots No7 Shade And Define Eye Pencils – Review

on April 28, 2014

The No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define Pencils*.

Great colours, great formula and great staying power.

I was not expecting to like these as much as I do.  Having had fairly Review - Boots No7 Shade And Define Eye Pencilsdisappointing experience with the No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil (the difficulty in getting any colour on the lid). I was fairly ambivalent.

Wow, was I in for a surprise!  The colour just glides (as Boots promo bumf says) onto the skin and has great staying power. It comes in a range of 8 very pretty colours.  I was fortunate to try 4; 2 darker and less shimmery colours (Deep Purple and Coffee Bean) and two lovely shimmery colours that I absolutely fell in love with.  (Pink Pearl and Glistening Ray – great names!)

The brown and purple are perfect for a smoky or shaded eye.  Applying and smudging with ease with just the tiniest hint of shimmer.  Very attractive.  Once set they do not budge until you remove them.

Review - Boots No7 Shade And Define Eye PencilsBut I absolutely adore the pale shimmery pink and gold colours.  They are perfect for spring and will be wonderful in summer when you have some colour to your skin.  They are very shimmery and very pretty and flattering.  I have been wearing all 4 for most of the past two weeks.

As above, I have been doing a smokey or shaded eye with the darker colours. The shimmery colours I have been using all over the lid to frame a lovely lashy look. See below for pictures. I highly recommend these pencils. I will be investing in the other 4 colours for sure.

    They do look nice. I have tried the other pencils you mentioned and did not find them very good so I will have a look at these.

      Hi Michelle,
      thanks for the comment! Do try them, I highly recommend them. The gold colour, glistening ray, I also use as a beautiful highlighter on the brow bone and on the cupids bow. Very pretty and flattering and will look lovely on tanned skin. Enjoy when you buy them. Let me know what colours you get and how you wear them. Mamasimx

    Pity they havent done a navy blue so big this season but I really like the gunmetal and the coffee bean. Looks like a trip to my local boots at lunchtime.
