It’s a bright sunny morning here in Devon at the moment so it seems a good moment to keep the Spring vibes going and to share with you the Spring offerings from No7.


Starting with the two nail polishes. There are two shades in the Gel Look Shine formula. Coral Crush and Sweet Lilac. (£7 each)*.

P1160382The colours are beautiful and opaque in one coat, although I would always recommend two coats. Gorgeous Spring shades. I found Coral Crush applied like a dream but Sweet Lilac was a little trickier, having a bit of a tippex type formula, I also didn’t find Sweet Lilac that shiny, but with a careful application and and nice top coat, neither of those things are too much of an issue. Nice Spring colours.

The highlight of the launch is the No7 Mini Eye Palette (£11)*.


P1160363Although it’s called a mini palette, I wouldn’t say it’s especially mini really! There are eight shades, each shade is taken from one of No7’s other palettes and you can find the details of where each shade is from on the rear. Mine unfortunately turned up with one shade crumbling. It’s a soft shadow though and I’m not overly surprised or concerned. The shades in the palette are all amazing.

P1160369Each shade has some shimmer, the darkest shades have minimal shimmer, it’s more like sparkle, and very little of it and there are a couple of shades that are richer shimmery shades.

The palest shade is my favourite, it’s the best kind of highlight shade. It’s a white shade with the faintest tinge of pink, and no obvious sparkle or shimmer although there is a slight pearl. My descriptions aren’t the best, but trust me, it’s a great highlight shade.

I thought when I opened the palette that I’d experience some fall out on application and that the dark shades might be a bit tricky to blend, but that hasn’t proved to be the case at all. I would definitely recommend this palette if you are looking for a neutral set of eye shadows, and this one works especially well for night or day with a good range of shades and finishes.

My top pick is definitely the Mini Eyeshadow Palette, it’s a great all rounder.

The collection is available now from Boots counters and Boots Online.
