The Boots No7 AW14 collection is deep, dark and moody and based around colours of navy, black and berry shades. It’s a small edit of 1 eye palette, 2 nail colours, 1 blusher and 2 lip shades, but it’s a lovely little collection that’s really on trend for the upcoming season.
The new releases I’m most keen on are the Matte Lip Crayons which have a lovely texture that’s creamy and comfortable with a demi-matte finish. The two shades are Raspberry Red – a very wearable, muted red shade and Raspberry Wine – a more traditionally autumnal berry shade. I like these very much and I can see them being popular, so I hope they extend the colour range soon. These are £9 here – link.
There’s also a new shade in their Pop & Glow Cream Blush range called Watermelon which is a really lovely, warm and mid pink shade that I would’ve matched to a Spring/Summer release personally, but it does work with the rest of the shades to stop the look getting too Goth. This is £9.95 here – link.
The palette contains some lovely shades but the colour payoff is surprisingly disappointing. I’ve found some absolute essential shades in the No7 Stay Perfect trios, so I was expecting the usual impressive finish but that hasn’t been the case here. However, hopefully they’re just rubbish for swatching and better on the eye; I’ll do a FOTD for the full collection soon and report back with an update.
The palette is called In The Navy and contains a really gorgeous, slightly mauve taupe shade, a shimmery ivory and a deep navy and is £9.50 here – link.
Lastly, we have the new Stay Perfect Nail Colour shades in Blue Patent and Black Patent. These are some seriously deep and dark shades, with Black Patent only needing one coat for a completely opaque finish, whereas Blue Patent needs the two.
Blue Patent is a lovely, true navy shade that’s very dark and very flattering against pale skin. These are £6 here – link.
