I love the Radiance Bronzing Highlighter, it’s great for cheeks and eyes. It gives a lovely shine and warmth to your summer look and the Geranium BB Lips is an on-trend red/orange. It shouts summer. In the photo on the right I am wearing the bronzing highlighter on my cheeks and lids and the BB lips in Geranium on my lips. I also put a hint of the Geranium onto the apple of my cheeks for a little colour.
In the photo on the left I am wearing the Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer with the Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation, Stay Perfect Mascara and the High Shine Lip Crayon in Tropical Beach which I also have on my cheeks. The colours are so flattering. I also have the Radiance Bronzing Highlighter on my cheeks and lids.
The nail collection is so pretty as well. I’m loving the pale yellow and muted orange. Perfect for summer. I would show you swatches, but my nails are in such bad condition I don’t want to compromise the lovely colours in any way!
Make sure you check this collection out and pick up a few items for your holiday.
Here is my original post…..
No7 have some wonderful sun care, makeup and skincare for this summer. In today’s post I am having a look at some of my favourites.
Suncreams, after sun care, beauty balms, and some truly bright and beautiful liners, blushes and lipsticks are just a few of my picks from the great products from No7 this summer.
No7 Sun Protection
Firstly, the Anti-Aeging Sun Protection range. It consists of:
- *Anti-Ageing Sun Protection Spray (£12.95) – good sunscreen for all over the body. Lotion consistency.
- *Anti-Dark Spot Facial Sun Protection (£12.00). This is a very good sunscreen for protecting against sun damage on the face. It has a thick, cream consistency.
- *Anti-Ageing Shimmering Lip & Eye Screen SPF 30 (£7.50). A favourite is this Anti-Ageing Lip and Eye Screen. This is a very moisturising and light lip and lid balm that gives protection and the mearest hint of shimmer. It’s packaged just like a lipstick so super convenient. Very subtle and very elegant. I love it.
Another plus is the range is available in SPF 15 or 30 and the Anti-Dark Spot Facial Sun Protection comes in SPF 30 or 50 which is great. It’s 50 all the way for me!
No7 Body Shimmer After Sun (£9.50) and the Facial Recovery After Sun (£8.50) is a great way to treat the skin after a day in the sun. They contain antioxidants and vitamins so you can be sure that your sun exposed skin is in the best of care.
I just have to mention about the Shimmering Lip and Lid Eye Screen again. So good!
Next up is the *No7 Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer (£12.50). I was a little unsure what this product would actually be, but was very pleased to see it is a primer for the skin. It is a colourless, lightweight formula that glides onto the skin. It leaves the skin feeling extra soft and very smooth, just like velvet. It reminds me very much of Benefit’s Porefessional but unlike Porefessional, this No7 product is colour free. As with all primers, Brilliantly Bare Beauty Enhancer will help keep your make up where you put it and not sliding down your face in the summer heat! This is definitely a must have product for summer if you like your make up to stay picture perfect all day. And there is nothing like the softness and smoothness that a really good priming product gives the skin. Bliss!
Now, onto my favourites things. Make up! No7 has some absolutely gorgeous colours and textures for summer. Starting with these eyeliners. Take a look at the colours. I absolutely adore Sky High and Mermaid. There are also a couple of metallic colours, the Metallic Royal (pictured) is a gorgeous navy blue. Any of these colours would be stunning for beach wear with a bright pop on the cheeks and a slick of coloured gloss on the lips. You would be so good to go. These must have *No7 Stay Precise Liquid Eyeliners (£7.50) come in 8 very wearable colours. (The golden brown and green would be perfect for the evening too!) These do not budge. Great staying power.
No7 Cream Eyeshadow
I’m loving the *No7 Stay Perfect Smoothing Eyeshadow‘s (£8.00) too. They are convenient to pop in your bag, easy to use as they glide on and can be patted into place with your finger or a brush. And when they are dry they do not budge. The colour selection is lovely too. There are 6 colours. Pretty Pink, Pale Green and Iridescent Purple are so pretty and summery and the Nude, Bronze and Pewter Shine are simply the best for an easy, quick sexy, smoky evening eye. I really rate these as they are so simple to use, do not budge once set and have a gorgeous shimmery colour that is very attractive. Don’t miss out on them. They really are lovely.
Now where would a girl be without a fab mascara? I’m always on the look out for a mascara that is a really good black, a creamy consistency that glides on and does not clump. Clumping really annoys me. There is nothing worse than having to take the time to comb your lashes through after you have applied your mascara. *No7 Lash Impact Mascara (£10) has gone straight into my favourites drawer. It fulfils all the criteria. It’s black (it also comes in brown/black). It does not clump and it packs a lotta punch. I love it and have been wearing it non-stop since I got it. It has knocked Maybelline’s The Colossal of it’s perch as my favourite, go to mascara. Thats really saying something. Great mascara at a great price.
No7 Lip Gloss and Cream Blush
Finally lips and cheeks! Well, as mentioned above, for the beach or by the pool you need some bright colours on the cheeks and happy, shiny colour on the lips. No7 has these covered too….. The *No7 High Shine Lip glosses (£9.00) come in 15 attractive shades. And there are some real candy and neutral shades that have to go in you beach bag this summer. Pink Sherbet, Tangerine Twist and Almost Pink are my particular favourites. They are high shine indeed with a lovely flavour that reminds me of sweets. You can’t get much better than that!
To match these lippies, No7 have their new No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush Stick (£9.95). (I reviewed them here.) The easy to use and easy to carry blushes come in 3 colours, Rose Blossom, an icy pink; Mango Sorbet, a delicious orange and Classic Rose, a deeper pink. Again, just throw them in your bag and you are good to go. These blushes really are the essence of convenience but it is the colour and formulation that really makes my heart beat faster. As you can see the colours scream summer and co-ordinate beautifully with the high shine lipsticks. The sticks do glide easily onto the skin and and are perfect for building if you want more intense colour. I like the fact they are non-greasy. The remind me of a cream to powder product though this is not mentioned anywhere in the product description. I recommend!
So that’s my round up. All the products mentioned I have tried and can absolutely recommend. Summer is just around the corner so get yourself ready!
I’ve added some pics of looks I have done with the products. Hope they give you some inspiration. Enjoy!
