While browsing in Boots, I noticed that No7 had the usual coupon for £3 off makeup and also a promotion to get a free goody box worth £24 for every 2 products you bought from their line. I've always been curious about No7 but have never tried many of their products so I decided to use the promotion as an excuse to put some of their products to the test.
And because I bought 2 products, I then got the free gift box, that came with 4 travel sized products, which are No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink, No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow, Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer and No7 Lovely Lashes Mascara. I had mixed feelings with this box. I really like the lip crayon as it's a lovely sheer pinky nude, that feels hydrating on the lips. And I like the primer too. It feels soft and creamy just like a moisturiser and also smells lovely. It seems to mattify and smooth the skin a bit, which is nice. But £19.50 for a drugstore primer seems a bit much, which is why I'm not sure I'd buy the full size. I'm still testing it, though, and will report back later. The other 2 products in the box, however, were quite disappointing. The eyeshadow is very sheer and glittery. I had to apply it many times to get some colour pay off and it was still not very good. Maybe their other shades are better but I will probably never wear this one that came in the box (which I could not find the name for). The mascara was also a let down. It's very wet and didn't do anything for my lashes at all. Maybe once it gets older, it will dry a bit and become better, but for now, I have to apply another mascara on top to get the results I like. So I'll keep insisting with it and report back as well. But so far, I'm not impressed.
I checked Boot's website and looks like the gift box has now been replaced with a 3 for 2 promotion. I highly recommend their lip pencils & the eyeshadow sticks. They are really good and really affordable too, especially if you get them with the £3 off voucher, which is available at the moment. The lip crayon and the primer are also nice, but nothing too special and I would definitely not bother with the other 2 products that came in the gift box. :)
