No7 Blush

With the last boots vouchers we both decide to get a new blush. L was after a stick blush for ages and spotted the No. 7 one. Since we had the vouchers we decided to try it as it was only £5. After L telling me how good it was I had to try it too. We both ended up getting the same colour. So here it is.

We got shade 15 blossom, it’s a very pretty rose pink shade. As it’s a stick blush it’s a cream blush which is my preferred type of blush. I have naturally rosy cheeks so until I bought this blush wasn’t part of my make up routine, I’d apply foundation to get rid of the redness on my cheeks so wearing blush was something I could never get used to but after purchasing this I am converted.

It’s so easy to use, just twist up the product and a quick slick across the cheeks and your done. beautifully highlighted and I was surprised what a difference it made to my make up, it’s subtle but pretty and can easily be built up.

Next time the boots vouchers come out I think I will purchase the other shades. It lasts on my cheeks all day and will be a long lasting product, but I don’t think I’d pay full price just because of how often the vouchers for £5 are available. Also check the product before buying as we found a few of them were snapped and fell out of the holder.

What’s your favourite blusher? Do you prefer cream or powder?

Love M


I love wearing blush and bronzer to contour my cheeks and give a bit of an extra glow (though maybe saving the bronzer for a night out!)

I’m a big fan of corals pinks and browner shades depending on the look I’m going for but I was always a bit of a powder fan, it lasts a long time and can be built up as necessary.

Besides, the only blush stick that I’d ever seen before was the Ruby and Millie one, and my bank won’t cover that at the moment!

I was really pleased to find this at the No7 counter, I thought it was worth trying for £5 when you have the vouchers.

The thing I was most looking forward to was being able to rub it on my face in the morning and leave, mornings are not my favourite time of the day but I’m determined to leave my house looking good!

This didn’t disappoint, it was so easy to use, produced a lovely colour that looked like I’d been outside in the frozen temperatures for a long walk and is small and nifty in design.

I can throw it in my essentials make up bag to take with me to the gym and it barely takes up any room. Having said that, don’t think that there isn’t a lot of product in it, because there is! 

I’ve been using it solidly every day for the past month or so and it’s barely gone down.

Well worth a try I think girlies, though wait for the next £5 vouchers to come around, they inevitably will and we will be racing you to the shelves!
