Product Review | No7 Pop & Glow





| No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush in Shade 'Classic Rose' |


It feels like forever since I actually reviewed a product,
& I've had this blusher now for around three months, whoops!

For start, I'm an avid No7 lover, it's my "go-to" brand, my foundation, primer and blusher are all usually No7 and I'm hard to be persuaded against them!
I've never actually used a cream blush before, *hangs head in shame*, but unfortunately, I don't think i'll be tying any more!

As I said, I LOVE No7 Products, but for me, this just isnt a winner.
You can apply the blush straight to your cheek, but I find this makes the colour MUCH to strong this way, so to apply I swept blush brush over the colour a few times and then applied to the cheek. I think used my finger lightly across my cheek to blend.

Firstly, it definitely needs blending, there is no way to apply it evenly which is pants as I hate using my fingers on my face! It always looks patchy and the consistency is really not great, there's often little blush lumps on my cheeks afterwards! 

And personally, I don't like how the cream feels on my face, it lies quite heavily.

But, after *ALOT* of faffing, and blending, and applying, and blending, and applying, and blending...... the colour itself is actually pretty gorgeous and a stunning spring shade. They have a gorgeous coral shade that looks rather pretty, but I think i'll be reverting back to my powders for now.

As for the wear, it's pretty decent, I can put this on at 9:00am and still have blushed cheeks during mid-afternoon, but I don't feel the same could be said on hot summer days.
I guess one big advantage is that it will last your forever!

Has anyone else tried this product?
I'm eager to find if it's just my oily skin that doesn't agree!

  1. I've never tried a cream blush before either- I really want to as there are so many gorgeous colours but I feel I would be so bad at blending it in! x
