Step into Spring

Lisa Eldrige showed some of these stunning new products from No7 in a recent video and I ran to boots the next day to have a look for myself!
I got the lipstick, blush and highlighter from the range opting for the pink colours rather than the corals as I overdid the coral look a while ago and haven't quite built up the courage to wear it again since. I managed to make myself look sunburnt and orange all at the same time... horrific.
The packaging is beautiful and really stands out from the standard dark coloured No7 packaging.

The cream blush is so easy to use and sets like a powder so unlike normal creams it doesn't move the foundation below it and it has an amazing colour pay off. I love using a tiny bit on the apples of my cheeks.
The lipstick is my new obsession and it is perfect for both day and night, it is quite a sheer natural pink colour with one layer but the more you apply the brighter it becomes. It is a really moisturising formula and lasts well leaving a pink tint to your lips for the whole day.
The highlighter is EPIC, the packaging is unbelievable and the pattern stays long after you've hacked away at the powder! I have used this highlighter almost everyday and since doing so have had compliments on my skin almost everyday - even when my skin is really dry and covered in blemishes, this highlighter manages to distract the eye. I like to think of it as the 'Edward Cullen effect' ;)

Here's a closer look at each of the products:

And finally those all important swatches:
