No7 Floral Brights

Gorgeous packaging no?

I’m not a huge No7 fan, I’m sure I might have mentioned it in the past! When I saw the press release for this collection, created by the fabulous Lisa Eldridge, I was initially sucked into the gorgeous packaging and then I spotted the cream blushers and I was won over. Blushers are my weakness. I keep having to blog sale them because I keep buying so many but you know, I can’t resist!

So anyway, I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of items from the collection, the Vital Brightening Eye Palette (£13) and the Vital Brights Cream Blusher in Blooming Pink (£10).

Beautifully presented I’m sure you’ll agree and I haven’t swatched heavily, these were all just quick dabs of the products and then transferred onto my hand with no primer.

The Vital Brightening Eye Palette is essentially four neutral shades with a small pop of yellow… which I have to confess I didn’t manage to use in my look. I found the palette gave me a soft natural effect and the finish of each shadow is satiny I think, there is shimmer but it’s not overtly so and certainly not on the eye.

It’s soft and gentle but of course you can ramp up the depth of colour with primers and layers, they are blended out a lot on my eye. The yellow is recommended for the inner corner of your eye. It’s very pretty, not something I’m lacking in my collection but if you’re looking for a reasonably priced palette for every day eyes you won’t get prettier than this.

The Vital Brights Cream Blusher in Blooming Pink is gorgeous! It’s buildable but I find it adds a gorgeous natural flush. It unfortunately hasn’t shown up too well in the photographs, but it is there and it’s more obvious in real life, but still a subtle flush, well it is the way I’ve worn it, you can see from the swatch above what’s possible!

It’s super pretty and gorgeous and the cream finish gives it a great blendable finish. I really recommend it. My only thought is that the having pink in the name is deceptive as this is decidedly orange/red/coral toned with the merest hint of pink.

Also in the collection are a fuchsia creme blush, a gorgeous Highlighter and two lipsticks. I think I’ll be popping into Boots to have a look at the highlighter as this is the first time I’ve been really impressed with No7. I love it!

This collection is in stores now, until 6th March and available from http://www.boots.com

What do you think? I think it’s fresh and pretty. What say you?

      Yes I’ll be going to look at the Highlighter tomorrow although it has to be said thats one thing I definitely don’t need!

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this collection. I bought the highlighter and love it. The blush colours are very pretty but I was a bit worried that they were too bright for me. :p x

    Lovely blush and I do love cream blushers. They add such a nice, healthy glow. The packaging, as you noted, is adorable. The eye palette is so versatile. I won’t be seeking it out as it’s similar to the EL Topaz palette for Spring 2012 that I recently bought, but those types of neutrals are so necessary in any wardrobe 🙂

    Oooh I was eyeing these up in Boots today, I’m a sucker for cream blusher too and those colours sure looked pretty and spring-like!… a return to the shop tomorrow me thinks! Thumbs up!

    Lovely packaging but so shy colors…

    Right misery guts I know but I can’t be doing with No 7 stuff, I really dislike this packaging and whilst the style of the eye palette is a nod to the lovely stuff all the “prestige” brands launched ages ago the colours are utterly uninspiring, where they aren’t rendered unuseable by the tiny dot of them in the palette! I do think No 7 should up their game and start to lead rather than relentlessly following. Whinge over!
