Boots No7 Autumn Collection 2011

 The new Boots No7 Autumn collection is now in store and with the No7 £5 off vouchers its a great chance to pick up a few new things but what is worth trying from the new collection? I have been trying out the Eye Colour, Double-Ended Eye Pencil, Lip & Cheek Tint as well as the new Lash adapt mascara.
 Lash Adapt Mascara (here)
This mascara claims to give you 'beautifully defined lashes' with no 'clogging and clumping' which actually doesn't really attract me too much. Straight away I assumed this mascara would give a very natural look and make lashes look long but not thick. The brush itself is exactly what I like, a nice size traditional mascara wand. The result...
The final result after a few coats was very long looking lashes and indeed they were not clumpy but I think that this mascara doesn't add enough drama.  Maybe after six coats it would add some sort of drama but seriously, who has enough time for six coats?! Although this mascara isn't really for me it would be fantastic if you like a more natural looking lash look that is defined but at £12.50 it is a little pricey.
Double Ended Eye Pencil (here)
I have this pencil in the Shade Mid Brown-Ivory and although I love one shade I don't think I will ever use the other. I think the Ivory Shade is perfect for the waterline, it will make your eyes appear brighter and bigger. For me the Mid Brown shade is really nothing special, it is far to light to define my eyes and is actually really hard to use. However if you are someone that thinks black eyeliner is a little too harsh then this may be a good colour to look in to. I think the Dark Brown shade would be more my taste. Retails for £9 which for two colours isn't too bad.
Cheek & Lip Tint (here)
This is actually one of my favourite Cheek Tints from the Highstreet and also my favourite product from this collection. This cheek tint is quite sheer making it easier to use then some cheek tints (its always easier to build up the product then to try and remove it) you can chose from a sheer cover or build it up to a stronger colour. The finish is non-tacky, natural and I think this product would work for most skin types but I think it is a little drying for the lips. I have the shade Pink Tint perfect for those of you with fairer skin tones although there is a shade for darker skins.


Eye Cream Colour (here)
I really I thought I would love this, it appears to be a pretty natural nude colour with light shimmer. However although the consistency and actual product is great the colour isn't on me it appear to almost be concealer and not eyeshadow as the shimmer disappears once it has been blended it. There is also another colour apart from Buff called Pewter which I might buy as I do really love the consistency. Retails for £10.50
Swatches- Lip & Cheek Tint, Eye Colour and Double Ended Eye Pencil


What do you think of the collection? Will you be spending any of your £5 off No7 Vouchers on anything I have shown?


I can not wait to shade the Christmas Collection so many products have caught my eye already!

  2. I actually like how the mascara looks on your lashes! But maybe that's just your natural lashes shining through, lucky! =P

    I agree, the cheek tint looks like the best product from the line. xx

  8. I'll probably get the mascara. I always buy new mascara and black eyeliners even though I have plenty... I just can't get enough of them :D

  12. I have the cheek tint, and I agree with what you've said about it being too drying for the lips. It's beautiful on the cheeks, though - so flattering and enlivening for my pale skin and redhead colouring. :-)
