No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse Eyeshadows

I don’t know if it’s old age (is 28 old?!?) but I’ve suddenly in 2012 become very relaxed with my beauty/makeup routines and applications.  Less is more.  More natural beauty rather than caked in layers of products.  More time to live your life rather than staring at a reflection of yourself in the mirror.  Over the top vanity is off the agenda these days.

Anyways, with my eye makeup – gone are the days of highlighting my brows and inner corners, shading my crease everyday.  They are replaced buy simple one shade on the lid.  If I haven’t been using my Maybelline 24 Colour Tattoo’s which I love, I have been using these. . .



The No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse Eyeshadows are a creamy mousse that is just so easy to use.  No need for a brush, a small amount on the ring finger and off you go.  Finish the look with liner and mascara then you’re done. Simples!

Here I have Vanilla and Pewter. Left is just spread onto the skin and right is blended in

The No7 mousses come in six different shades.  I have two of them; Vanilla (ivory/cream) and Pewter (soft grey/silver) and they cost £9.00 each or 900 points if you purchase with advantage card points.  Now they may seem expensive for a small 5ml tube, but honestly you don’t need much at all.  Less than a pea size can cover both lids.  The colours are very metallic and illuminating. They glide on effortlessly, you don't need to blend with a brush, your fingers are all you need. 

Staying power is a tricky one.  I've found these last for quite a while on your lids alone.  Apply at 8am there is still a majority of the product there at 5pm, however if you're going out after work you may need a touch up.  As I type this now at 10pm, I still have a creased vanilla on my lids.  So it does last but applied on a eyeshadow base longevity will be so much better.  I have oily skin so unfortunately they do have a tendency to crease on me *doh!*

My suggestion with these are if you're unsure, wait for Boots to do their usual £5.00 off No7 vouchers, so you won't be forking out so much.  I do think they a tad over priced, which is a shame.  Regardless I would however, pay the full price as I think they are that nice.

Have you seen these before?  Sorry for lack of posting.  I have been out and about enjoying the sunshine.

  1. I have pewter, I got it a few years ago in a gwp that No7 do sometimes. I like it, it's good for quick and easy makeup :)

  2. They look really nice! Not sure I'd pay £9 though just because Maybelline Color Tattoos are half that price and I love them! Not too bad if you use the £5 voucher though like you said :) xx

  3. I have tried one of these and the pay off is lovely but like you said the staying power isn't so great. I have a few no7 knocking around at the moment, might pick up another colour to try. xx

  5. I have a little mini one of these from a gift with purchase (Pewter actually) and it is very pretty. I have to use the tiniest amount though over a good base to avoid creasing. Vanilla looks lovely too! x
