Pirouette my Summer by No.7

It's tipping it down outside, blowing gale and I have my thickest winter coat welded onto my body. But Boots has decided it was summer and went all out to celebrate its arrival. There are plenty of offers throughout the store to help you bare your body for cheaper and there is a new seasonal no.7 make up range whose name never fails to wind me up. This year, it's called 'Summer?In your dreams  in my head it's summer 'Summer of Dreams'.

Annoyance of the name aside, there are 2 gems I couldn't wait to try: The glitter top coats.  Would you believe (and this has never happened to me) they had an official tester of the silver top coat today and naturally I had to try!

My quick snap below shows one coat (applied in a patting motion) on one coat of no.7 lucky lilac. Not bad for one coat, hey? This glitter top coat reminds me of the 'Pirouette my whistle' from OPI, the only colour which I fancy from the recent 'New York Ballet Collection'. It's so pretty!

To complement the collection, Boots released 2 lipglosses, 1 bronzer and 4 eyeshadow crayons.

Not sure if I am happy to fork out the £8 requested to purchase a glitter polish but with a no.7 voucher (are they going to have some time round?) it's going to be very hard to resist.

This is a summer collection? Is is me or does it scream winter to you lip products aside? It reminds me of Mac's Winter collection that just past. Ramble aside it is very pretty :) x

Eh, not very exciting. Don't think I'll bother with this.

Completely correct! All those frosty blues and the sparkly snowy glitter - it's wintery! The glitters do look nice though! :-) x

Let's pretend it's summer! Love the sarcasm! Anyway, in Canada now it's suny :)The glosses look nice.

I agree it does look quite wintery. The lip shines are quite pretty though.

They're doing no7 vouchers at the moment!

They look alright. I just don't think it's worth the price really.
