I wouldn’t be a proper blogger if it was all sunshine and sparkles. Sometimes I’m sent products or even buy products that just don’t come up to scratch.
The primer isn’t bad, it’s very functional as a during the week daytime primer. I actually find it works quite well on the eyes – I’m a terrible one for getting eye shadow lines and this product goes a long way to combat that.
The eye make-up remover is terrible stuff, simply because it doesn’t remove mascara – any kind. It ended up in the bin.
And finally the mascara – this has been hanging around my bathroom for ages and I only broke it out a couple of weeks ago.
My only question is, where does it go?
I applied this liberally as I always do with mascara. Having blonde eyelashes I coat them – top and bottom – with lots of thick black mascara. When I started using the No. 7 product I thought it looked a little wimpy. This can happen with new mascaras as the brush hasn’t time to get fully coated with product.
The main problem I had with this mascara was how much was left at the end of the day. Obviously your make-up will wear off as you go about your business but with this Extreme Length Mascara there was NOTHING left. Honestly, it looked like I hadn’t put anything on at all. Not good.
I’m quite disappointed with my No. 7 haul. I always think of the brand as a slightly posh, mid-range line. A good place to go if you can’t quite afford the bigger names with bigger prices. With what I bought however, even though it was a three for two deal, I felt like I was paying for nothing more than the name and packaging. I absolutely know that I can get better products out there for a fraction of a cost. I think from now on I’ll be giving my £5 vouchers away, this brand just isn’t worth the money.
