no7 vital enlightening highlighter powder

| no7 vital enlightening highlighter powder £13- boots |

this gorgeous highlighter is part of the no7 spring collection entitled floral brights, which was created with the help of the insanely gorgeous and talented lisa eldridge. i saw it in boots on one of mine and cassi's lunchtime shopping trips and was instantly taken by how gorgeous the packaging is (it completely reflects the name of the collection!) and after a bit of umm-ing and ahhh-ing over whether i actually needed another highlighter i decided to take the plunge and get it with one of my no7 vouchers! (cassi you are such an enabler!)

the product is buttery soft and really lightweight. it blends beautifully to give a really natural colour, perfect for everyday wear but build able for the evening. as well as being build able the product can also be blended out to give a really sheer colour, which is great for people who are just starting out experimenting with highlighters.

sadly the pictures don't fully reflect how beautiful this colour is in the pan. the swatch on my finger makes it almost look gold but in fact it has a gorgeous peach undertones mixed with a little bit of pink shimmer. it's this gorgeous mix of colours that makes it suitable for so many different skin tones, i think the gold in it will make it perfect for when i have a tan in the summer. the shimmer of the product is evident in the pan but is very subtle on the skin, which is good because the last thing you want is took like a giant, walking glitter ball!

i love this product and it has become a staple in my everyday make-up routine! i'll definitely be checking out some of the other products in this collection, especially the gorgeous cream blushers!

what do you get with your no7 vouchers? have you purchased anything from the collection?

p.s cassi has a blog now and you should all go check it out because she is a total babe! (link here)
