No7 and Rimmel make-up purchases



As mentioned previously I’ve recently bought a new mascara and I luurves it. It’s the new No7 Lash Adapt in black. I was looking for one that created length, volume and curls (a girl can dream right?) and I’ve always been a fan of this brand so thought I’d try them first – plus I had one of the fab £5 off vouchers! It normally retails at £12.50.

I originally wanted a silicone brush as a personal preference but after speaking with the sales assistant, I opted for this one which actually has a bristle brush. She was wearing the mascara herself and said it’s great for buildable volume (as it says on the tube) without leaving you clumpy. This is what I love most about it, plus:

# It glides on easily, not catching in your lashes or going crispy
# You can reapply as many times as you like to create a darker, more volumised look without worrying about clumps
# It removes really well (after using the Collection 2000 mascara which smears like anything when you remove it, this was a welcome blessing)
# And it really lengthens well – it doesn’t curl unfortunately but that’s what curlers are for!

I’m so impressed with this and will definitely be buying it again. Sometimes I finish it off with a little of a different mascara just to curl the tips of my lashes – does anyone else mix and match at all?

I also picked up their Amazing Eyes Liquid Liner in black. As a complete dunce when it comes to eyeliner I was wary of using it but really wanted to learn how to create that lovely flick-look, and thought ‘practice makes perfect’.


For someone that could never draw a smooth line using liquid-liner, I’ve surprised myself with this product and would recommend it to anyone. It has great staying power (lasting all day), is so easy to use and I find the thin brush useful rather than tricky as I can build up a thicker line in stages. This retails as £8.75 but again I had a voucher so got mine for £3.75!! Bargain.

One more product that I’m in love with of late is the new Kate Moss Rimmel lipstick in 05. It’s a sheer muted pink colour with a slight shimmer and it’s my new go-to lipstick. It feels lovely to wear, very moisturizing and I like that it has a slight sheen to it opposed to a matte finish. They are £5.49 – I want every colour!

Have you tried anything from the Kate Moss Rimmel range yet?
