No7 has been a brand that I’ve loved exploring this year; delving into their make up and skin care products that many thousands and thousands of women across the world love. In the past few months I have bought (and reviewed!) the: Hot Cloth Cleanser, Stay Perfect Foundation, Blushing Tulip & Cranberry Kiss lipstick and the Early Defence Day Cream. All of which I have absolutely loved.
When it comes to makeup brushes, I’ve always stuck to my good ol’ Real Techniques core collection and have now pretty much used them to death. I popped into Boots with my sister as she was having a prom trial makeover and I absolutely loved the brushes that the lovely assistant used on her. The No7 Core Collection Brush Set contains a foundation brush, concealer brush, eye colour brush and blusher brush – does the word brush look weird to you now?! – for just £23.00. Which isn’t bad at all, as if you were to buy the brushes individually it would cost you a whopping £41.50! The faux leather pouch it comes in is secure and protects the brushes inside, and there’s also another 4 gaps to hold other accessories.
The brushes themselves are made from synthetic hair and feel incredible soft; both to touch and on the skin. I usually use a buffing brush to apply my foundation, but I’ve certainly noticed a difference when applying foundation with the flatter brush in this set. It gives my skin a more natural look and I’ve noticed my skin doesn’t look patchy after a few hours wear. I’m also loving the blusher brush as it picks up a lot of the product and blends so softly into the skin. Boots always have good deals on, especially when it comes to No7, and right now they even have a buy one get second half price deal so it’s the perfect time to try out new products without feeling guilty. Well, too guilty.
