No7 Advent Calendar Round Up Week 4

No7 Advent Calendar

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense day cream
No7 nail polish duo

So I've reached the last of my advent calendar round ups! I've never had a beauty advent calendar before this but I'm definitely going to get one again next year. No7 have completely blown me away with the selection that I received and I've been shocked at the quality of some of the products. I've really liked the majority of their cosmetics and it's definitely opened my eyes to a whole new brand. I feel like I neglected No7 as a brand and more fool me. I've really missed out. Anyways, lets take a look at what I got on my final week of advent. 

1. Gel Look Shine Nail Colour

I think I have enough nail polishes to last me a lifetime now and No7 threw another one into the mix. I like that No7 have brought out gel look nails but I'm not sure where I stand on the colour. I mean I like it but I feel like I've probably got a few different variations of this shade kicking about in one of my draws. I think I'll probably keep this as a gift. This shade is deep wine and retails at £7.00. 

2. No7 Amazing Eyes Pencil

I feel slightly overwhelmed by the amount of eyeliners I've received in this box. As I said yesterday, I'm always happy to have a spare and here's another to add to my collection. I must admit I love a brown eyeliner for those days where I fancy a change. Hopefully it has some lasting power as that is one thing I worry about with pencils. This retails at £6.50.

3. No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Day Cream

I've been waiting for this one to crop up since I got the night cream earlier on in the month. I'm a little disappointed they didn't put these closer together as I've already used up quite a lot of the night cream but hey ho. I've been raving about the night cream as it is extremely moisturising and is a lovely treat during the winter. The day cream is similar but it feels very light which is great for wearing under makeup. The day cream also has spf 15 which is a lovely addition to protect your skin from those nasty rays. The full size retails at £22.00.

4.No7 Stay pefect Duo Nail Colour

I was kind of disappointed I got this for day 25. Don't get me wrong, I like the concept but I was expecting that they had kept the best for last. I like the idea of a duo nail polish as it makes a lovely gift but pink and gold? I just can't see this pink going with it. On the plus side I do love the gold. I had a mess around with it on Christmas morning and it's lovely for new years so I'll save it until then. I think this may be a special edition nail polish and the shades included are Hot To Trot and Cheeky Chops. This retails at £6.00.

I'm a little sad to say goodbye to this box, I'm not going to lie I still haven't chucked it out yet. I've formed a loving attachment. I'm kind of hoping I missed a door and there is something waiting to surprise me. Farewell advent calendar, you've been great!

  3. Haha I missed my chocolate calendar after it was finished, so I can imagine how you feel with this calender stopping, the nail polish colour looks incredible, I really feel like I need to get into No7 a little more because I never have taken the time to look at what they have on offer, so this is great!
