No7 ‘Nude to Night’ Palette.

Top six are the eyeshadows followed by the blusher, bronzer & highlighter.


Hi Everybody,

Its a been awhile since I bought any face palettes but a couple of weeks I took advantage of a Boots No7 offer. Buy 2 products and receive a face palette for free. How could I refuse!

The packaging is sleek and simple. A black case with the No7 logo on it. The palette itself contains 6 eye shadows, 1 blusher, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter. There is a fair amount of products and a large mirror is a wonderful bonus. As a wearer of glasses I do appreciate a large mirror and the fact that the hinge goes completely flat makes it so much easier to go closer when you need it.

The eyeshadows are all very wearable with added shimmer to them and the colours are easy to blend. I did find that I had some slight fallout but the pigmentation is very good when building up the colour. I have been wearing the eyeshadows without using other eyeshadows. The Blusher is peachy coloured  with a matte finish. The bronzer has a matte finish with no orange tones. Perfect for me! The highlighter is a champagne shade and is beautiful to use, it stayed on all day until I cleansed my face.

This is a versatile, pretty palette. It is perfect for everyday use or for travel if you need just one palette.  I’m rarely disappointed by No7 products and it is a firm favourite already.



YSL ‘Black Opium’ EDP!


Hi Everybody,

Summer is stepping away and Autumn is nearly upon us. Some people like to change their fragrances according to the changing of the seasons.  I wear heavy, heady fragrances in the cooler months because you can notice them more but not in the summer as they can be too overpowering and you won’t be able to feel the different notes which makes fragrances so interesting.

One fragrance that I will be looking forward to wear in the Autumn is YSL Black Opium. I have to mention the bottle design first. It looks like a hip flask with the open glass middle. The texture of the bottle is like glitter all over the bottle, so tactile.

The opening is creamy, warm and sweet with a hint of vanilla. The dry down is full of coffee, musk and a hint of floral, particular jasmine. Later the vanilla is still there but woodiness is there too.

This fragrance can be worn in the chilly days or a warm summer evening. You can rock this fragrance in a leather jacket and jeans but it is also sophisticated  enough to be worn with a sleek sexy dress. It is a beautiful fragrance.
