A much needed haul

How cute are these No 7 travel sized products?

Will there ever be a N0 7 product that I'll not like? I mean unconsciously I hoard its products and end up using them all and then call myself a MAC fan, how pretentious can we be!

The Intelligent Colour Foundation is not my shade and it will be going in the giveaway for you guys very soon. The Moisture Drench lipstick in Chic is a luscious pink and glides on like butter, yumm. I am not overtly fond of the Intense Volume Mascara as it tends to give me spider lashes. The nail paint is a sparkly gold which is so pretty on the nails, will do an NOTD for you guys sometime.

What I absolutely loved was the skincare products I got in this kit. It's gentle cleanser works so effectively in removing every trace of makeup, especially when you're too lazy to wash it off. I adore my toners and use them religiously hence this one is no different and gets loved equally.

I was pretty surprised by No 7's Advanced Hydration Day Cream though, I mean it is seriously moisturising on my dry skin and its rose scent has got me addicted! It leaves me with an instant glow which lasts for quite a while - will repurchase for sure.

If you want to expand your makeup collection, what better than a £6 investment for 12 eye shadow colors. Hence Sleek.

Featuring Circus - Colorful, Artistic, Effective. Includes all primary colors. Great for photo shoots. The matte shades picture fantastically too! I am a matte eyeshadow fan so this is my favourite of the lot. Grab this!

Original - I missed out on this palette thinking it was similar to Storm which I already have. But there are some shimmery blue's and purples here which are really pretty. This is great for everyday. The color selection could have been more impressive here. Not a must-have.

Sunset - I have no words to describe how beautiful this palette is. All the shades are superbly selected. The blue surely adds a twist! The only palette one would need for an Asian bride. Some stunning reds and golds here.

and Safari - Again, one that strikes the chord. I love tans and khaki colors for eyes. It has a superb matte brown too which I love to use to define the crease. Perfect for a night-out and parties. This would be my on-the-go evening palette. MUST-HAVE.

I like that fact that all Sleek palette's have a dark matte black in them. Its even darker than most black eyeliners in the market, so I like using this for lining the eyes.

Their casing is pretty good quality too, as I managed to drop it quite a few times thinking it would be shattered but it was completely fine. I can see how perfect these would be for make-up artists and all.

These babies are no more for a fiver now though which is a pity! I am willing to ignore that taking in to consideration what you get for the price is still worth much more.
