Review: No7Natural Blush Tint Powder in Soft Damson

pinkdamson1

In the Boot sale I bought a No7 Beauty Organiser set and in it was this No7 Natural Blush in Soft Damson. I did a search in Boots and apparently it’s a Natural Blush Tint Powder rather than a normal blush. This Soft Damson appears to be the only colour available in it at the moment and it costs £8 on the Boots website.

I’m not sure if it’s a new product but the fact there’s only one colour makes me think it might be as it’s something that could come in a range of colours. I haven’t found much about it on blogs so I thought I’d do a review. I have had a bit of a play around with it but there aren’t many ways of using it as it’s a pretty subtle colour.

Review: theBalm Balm Jovi Face Palette

I got this recently from ShopBXB and I was so excited about it that it jumped the queue of palettes I’ve got to review and I had a play around with it today. I hope the photos are ok, I did a big batch of photos for posts because we had half decent light outside today and that hasn’t really happened for the past month with the British autumn.

The Balm Jovi palette by theBalm has been out for a while and I have wanted it since I saw a review on YouTube but it was always either not available in the UK or out of stock and I’ve only seen it in stock recently and then it was £37 I think. This was £25 in the sale (now £28 here) so I had to get it. It’s a face palette and it has twelve eyshadows/liners in a mix of mattes, shimmers, metallics and one I would consider a glitter. It also has a highlighter, blush and two cream products that can be lip or cheek tints. The ingredients for the eyeshadows are the same as for the highlighter and blush so I think they could be used for eyeshadows if you like the colours for that.

Review: The Balm Balm Voyage Face Palette

balmvoyage12

As the second volume of the Balm Voyage collection (is it a collection with just two?) was recently released, I think in March, and I only found out about it yesterday I thought I’d do a review of the first one. The second is on my wish list and I might even risk eBay for it as I can’t find a release date for it in the UK. Anyway, onto the review of the first. It’s quite a long review, next time I might cut these longer ones in two, what do you think? Leave them as one or post them in two parts?

I bought this palette from Asos when they had an offer of 20% off for students, though I can’t find it on their website at the moment so I’m not sure if they still stock it. It doesn’t seem to be available in many places in the UK but I found it on the Feelunique website at £37.50 if you want to buy it. The palette has 16 eyeshadows and 3 cheek and lip tints, the eyeshadows come to 28.8g (1oz) and the lip and cheek tints 6.6g (0.21oz) so you get a fair amount of product in the palette, the eyeshadows in particular were bigger than I was expecting going by palettes of a similar price from some other companies.
