No7 Stay Perfect Metallic Eye Pencil Review

1

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!

Top 5 Thursday: Mascara

1

Mascara is probably my favourite, can’t-be-seen-without product. It is my secret addiction and so it makes sense that not only have I tried hundreds but I also have plenty barely used, sitting in my drawer. These 5 lovelies however, have been used, used and used again.

It can be so difficult standing in Superdrug trying to decide which new mascara to choose, they all boast fantastic abilities and very few live up to expectation. Rarely can you try them out before your shell out and so you only have advertising to go by, leading to let down and a second trip to town. This is why I’ve put together a list of my top 5, these ones will not let you down. Arm yourself with my easy list before making your trip and you’ll waste less time on wonga on mascaras that just don’t cut the mustard.

1 – Benefit – They’re Real

This is my top mascara at the moment, it is hard-working and looks amazing. It also stays on far ages, actually it’s quite a job to get off at the end of the day, perfect for the working girl! It also doesn’t melt and run in the heat! See my full review of this here.

2 – MAC – Zoom Lash Mascara

This one doesn’t give so much volume as number 1 but it boy does it provide length, this is for you if you want lashes that go on and on and on. It is much easier to remove than They’re real but still stays on for a fair amount of time. Full review here.

3 – Jelly Pong Pong – Fairy Lashes Mascara

I love this mascara, it comes in a cute purple tube and a gorgeous box too. It feels really light to wear but looks beautiful on. Full review here.

4 – NO7 – Extravagant Lashes Mascara

This one is great for boosting the volume of your lashes without clumping. I haven’t reviewed many No7 products lately but this is one of my favourites.

5 – Rimmel – The Falsies Volume Effect Express Mascara – Flared

This mascara comes in different styles from rocket to flared. This is the flared one and it is fantastic for giving definition to your lashes. You use one side to lengthen and curl the lashes and the other to flare out the corners. It works really well and is a good price but perhaps doesn’t last as loon during the day as others.

I hope this has been useful and I’d love suggestions for next weeks top 5!
