Alright. My no-buy is pretty much off the cards, but I’m still using up products. I guess it’s not really P10P if I’m still buying, but I think I did well.
Anyway, Boots No 7 recently released their Floral Brights spring collection, created by the Mary Poppins of make up, Lisa Eldridge. Now, I’m not usually a No 7 fan – I don’t think I own any of their products apart from these – but when I saw the cream blushes on display, I got sucked in. The colours really spoke my name – or yelled it while beating me over the head – so I had to go in for a closer look. The collection consists of two lippies, two cream blushes, a highlighter and an eye palette – I picked up a blush and the highlighter.
I’m not sure what I think of the packaging – it’s chunky and sturdy and feels really good quality. The design isn’t really up my street though, which is a shame, but nice not to see plain ol’ black-and-white and I guess it’s nice and spring-y.
Ahhh, don’t you want to smoosh that highlighter? Just me? Okay…
I couldn’t capture highlighter nicely blended out, but trust me, it’s beautiful. If you have a champagne highlighter shaped hole in your collection you could do a lot, lot worse. It doesn’t have chunky particles, blends out onto the cheekbones smoothly, and it’s a good size at 10g.
I meant to pick up the more coral-y colour of the two blushes, but decided I had enough corals so went for Blossoming Pink, a lovely rosy-fuchsia. Ladies, do yourself a favour – get this blush. I’ve never had a cream blusher that has such a nice cream-to-powder formula, it’s just wonderful. It still doesn’t last as long on me as powder blushes do, but there is a time and a place for cream blushes and this is a must have.
The Vital Enlightening Highlighter retails for £13 and the Vital Brights Cream Blushers go for £10. They’re currently on 3-for-2 so worth going and checking out before they’re gone!
