I’m a great lover of No7 products so naturally when I needed a new eye pencil I went straight to them. They’re a little more expensive than other highstreet brands but no where near as pricey as makeup counter brands yet their performance is outstanding.
I liked the look of this one as soon as I saw it, I got in ‘Blackest’ as I needed an everyday wear pencil and I tend to stick to black. It has a lovely glitter to it which is quite subtle when it is on but still adds a bit of glamour. It also has a very handy smudging brush at the end which is perfect for smokey eyes.
I am so impressed with this eye pencil. I used it yesterday and I got a bit tearful at church and was terrified it’d run down my face but true to it’s name it stayed perfect. I then watched a soppy film (Now is Good, if you haven’t seen it, do!) and I sobbed, literally sobbed but guess what? Stayed perfect!
It was also really easy to use and came out really well, it didn’t smudge unless I wanted it to and then it did that well too. It was really precise to use too which is great for me seeing as I’m so clumsy. It was also really soft, don’t you just hate those ones that scratch at your eyes?!
Here’s the results!
It was also a really reasonable price at just £6.50. Think I may have to get it in a couple of different colours! I am also going to award this one with the Naked Beauty Seal of Approval, well done No7, another stonking product!
I’ve always doubted the worth of eyelash curlers, why bother when you have mascara that does the same job? That was until this little friend sauntered into my life courtesy of Glossybox.
I have used eyelash curlers before but never really seen any difference, these have changed all that! I didn’t worry about heating them up as I don’t fancy burning myself and I’m lazy but they still gave a great result.
I just pressed down on my eyelashes a few times starting at the base and working up, I held for 4-5 seconds each time and voila! Beautiful curled lashes BEFORE my mascara had even been looked at! I then added a quick coat of They’re real and walked out with eyes that appeared bigger and wider, and it’s all down to the super-curler lashes gifted by the Emite Eyelash Curler.
As a bonus it also comes with spare red pads, ideal for when you’re ready to show them off to a friend but more so for makeup artists. I would never have paid near on £20 for eyelash curlers before but these are definitely worth the price, after al they will last a life time!

After seeing this foundation had won awards in a couple of magazines I had to try it for myself. I had never heard of B. before so had no idea what to expect.
After trying a few shades I selected Rose Ivory 020 as it seemed to be my best match. I was impressed with the range of shades available and they also had different foundations for every purpose, it was hard to think of a single person who wouldn’t find their perfect match among these lovelies!
It says to apply using fingers on the bottle but I always use a foundation brush so I just continued use as I normally would. It matched my skin perfectly and blended in for a flawless finish. It felt really light on my skin but had amazing coverage. It covered all my blemishes and dry spots without a problem.
This foundation also left me with a healthy glow without being shiny. It claims to last 16hours but I have never actually come across a foundation that lasts that long in this heat on me. It has managed a good 10 hours the last couple of days and on cooler days I’m sure it would reach 16 hours easily.
Even though it has a really good coverage my skin still looks like my skin which I love. This has easily become my new favourite foundation, I don’t even need to use a primer under it. It is also really reasonably priced at £9.99 from Superdrug.
This foundation would suit all skin-types and I highly recommend it. In fact at Naked Beauty we are now giving the Naked Beauty Seal of Approval to outstanding products, there are loads of our favourites that we have already reviewed but this will start from today.
