One more week of £5 off No7

Everyone wants to make the most of money off vouchers or other general deals and offers. However if you're anything like me even with the £5 off No7 you'll still find the prices a bit much. I'm not arguing that No7 products aren't worth the money because I definitely believe that they are, however if your skint then it doesn't matter if it's worth the money or not. So this post is all about the cheaper products in the No7 line that with the voucher will cost no more than about £3.

For me the best way to spend you're pennies is defiantly on the brushes. When you use the vouchers some of the brushes cost as little as £2. They're great quality brushes as well, I've only been using them for a few months but the three I have I love. The three in this post are the one I own myself as I don't feel it right to feature brushes that I haven't used. However in her Favourite Brushes video makeup artist to the stars Lisa Eldridge recommends the No7 foundation brush among some others from the No7 line, so I would say that this brush is definitely worth trying.

Concealer Brush - £3 with the voucher

I really like this brush, mainly because of it's size and thickness, it's more like a mini foundation brush and allows to conceal large areas of pigmentation much more easily that with the average concealer brush. Unfortunately that does also mean that a smaller concealer brush is need to do very precise concealing. 

Smoky Eyeliner Brush - £2.25 with the voucher

This brush does exactly what it says on the metaphorical tin! It's perfect for creating smoky eyeliner looks, both at smudging Kohl and gel liner and at applying the liner. The picture above doesn't do justice to how dense the brush is, which is what makes it so great for the job it does. I would still rather use a classic smudger to smudge eyeliner as i think it's generally easier, however I haven't found anything better this for applying smoky liner.

Eyeshadow Blend & Contour - £2.25 with the voucher

For me this is both my favourite and worst brush from the No7 brushes that I've tried. Why it's my worst brush- because the quality isn't worth the regular £7.25 price, the brush shed a couple of hairs the first couple of times I used it, luckily since then it's behaved itself. Also after washing it has lost its shape a little bit, but not nearly enough to ruin the brush. Why it's my favourite brush- because it works so well! It's absolutely perfect for the crease of the eye and blending out shadow. Therefore it's definitely worth the £2.25 but for the full price there is probably something better out there.

Quick Cover Blemish Stick - £3 with the voucher
I actually have two of these because I bought one last year when the vouchers were on which still has a tiny bit left in. I haven't used it religiously because I've been dipping in and out of using other concealers, but this always seems to trump any other stick concealers I've used. The coverage is great and it lasts for the day as well. I also find that this work really well with the previously mentioned concealer brush, and just to add a little cuteness to this post I would say that these two products belong together. The only thing about this product is that it needs a little warming up to make it easier to apply, but other than that I love it.

The final product that I would recommend is the eyelash curler, they're nothing different or spectacular which is why i didn't think they merited they're own picture. However they are very good and a pair of good curler for only a couple a quid sounds good to me! I hope this post was of some help to someone :)
This is all,
