Boots Summer 2011 Preview - Sneaky Peek

I was delighted to be invited to the Boots Summer Show on Tuesday.

It was a great day to be having the event as the sun was shining and it was warm, really easy to get in the mood for Summer!

I am quite a convert to Boots No7 products - my favourite lipstick is ' Nude Rebel' one from the Autumn Collection so I was looking forward to seeing what was being brought out for Summer.

I met Lisa Eldridge and she introduced the No7 Summer Limited Edition Sundowner Collection - This is a 70's  inspired collection, in homage to Jerry Hall. Think sultry glamour reminiscent of the golden beaches and palms of the world's most luxurious destinations like Mustique and Monaco!. It is all about being a bronze goddess.

My personal favourites from the range include the Sunset Metallic Eye Palette - £13.50

These are 4 gorgeous metallic shades, they are so soft and creamy to the touch, I cannot wait for this to launch! A great tip from Lisa Eldridge was to apply the shadow with a damp brush to make the metallic sheen really pop.

The quad will have a palm tree embossed across it - sounds lovely! - Available from 18th May 2011 - 12th July 2011.

I had this applied on my nails - Stay Perfect Nail Polish in Sultry Sands - £7.50

It is Friday now and with a base coat and top coat this is still perfect. Sultry Sands is a gorgeous glittery nude shade, so shimmery and it will look amazing with a Summer glow.  There will also be a bronze shade called Golden Palms.

Available from 18th May 2011 - 12th July 2011.

Launching on the 13th July No7 will be 4 new shades of Moisture Drench Lipstick - 2 new reds and 2 nudes. My favourite from the new range is Rumour - a wonderful sheer light nude. Look out for my review coming soon.

From the skincare range the item that got me most excited was the Instant Vitality Eye Roll-on £12

This Roll-on with Pro-vitamin B5, light diffusing pearl, Eyeliss and caffeine promises to instantly refresh and reduce puffiness for a wide-awake look. I cannot wait to get my hands on this!

Available from 13th July 2011

Over at 17 cosmetics I was transported to Miami with their Miami Pop Collection. This collection has been inspired by the neon signs seen on Miami's Ocean Drive. Having visited Miami I am inclined to agree that this is a great inspiration for a summer collection.

I love the Miami Pop Lipgloss £3.99

This is such a juicy high-shine gloss in hot pink - perfect for a summer pout!

Also in the range are 2 juicy bright nail polishes and a bronzer.

The Miami Pop Collection is available from 15th June for 4 weeks only

Bring on Summer! Has any of this whetted your appetite?


  1. I was always put off Boots No7 because of images of my granny's greying powder compact, but I bought the Lisa Eldridge recent lipstick in Grace and could not believe how beautifully wearable this is. Thanks so much for this, definately a brand I will be checking out more often, I too am excited by the eye roll on. Jan x

  2. Jan, I too used to not bother with it but recently it has been excellent (particularly the lipsticks!) and good value.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
