Boots No7 Autumn/Winter Collection 2011 - Sneaky Peak!

Last night I had the pleasure of pre-viewing the Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection from Boots No7. I say pleasure because we were treated to fabulous cocktails and canap├ęs, a chat with top make-up artist Lisa Eldridge and a chance to see the new products up close and personal.

This limited edition collection is called 'Modern Minimalism' .

I have to say that I am really excited about the launch of the products as they are so wearable and so me. I love the idea of a few products providing a simple yet polished appearance.

My absolute favourite and 'must have' product is the No7 Limited Edition Eye Colour £9.50  in Pewter - (shown one in from the right) This is a cream formula shadow that literally glides across the skin,  when blended it is a beautiful wash of colour, otherwise it is a really nice intense metallic grey. I can see myself getting a lot of use of this.

The Eye Colour also comes in Buff - a natural tone.

No7 Limited Edition Lip and Cheek £12.50 

These were causing quite a stir last night as they are soft to apply, non sticky and blended well with an ever so subtle shimmer for a healthy look. They are available in 2 shades. Pink Tint (more suited for fairer skins) and Bronze Tint (for darker skins). I would use both.

The other item that appealed to me from the range were the Double-Ended Pencils £9.50

Once again these are going to be sold in two shades Mid Brown-Ivory and Dark Brown-Ivory. Make-up artists have long advised to use the trick of a light pencil in the inner eye to open up the eyes and give the appearance of bigger eyes. In the past I have used a white pencil but chatting to make-up artists recently they have advised using a creamier colour for a more natural look so ivory is ideal.

All items shown are available from 10th August 2011 - 4th October 2011

Other products also to be released  - I have samples of these in my possession so look out for the reviews coming soon.

Stay Perfect Primer £11 
Lash Adapt Mascara £12.50 - This is apparently a mascara that you can add up to six coats and it will remain soft and the lashes defined.

For those of you who love your false lashes No7 are launching their first ever range of false lashes to complement their range of mascaras.

There are going to be 6 variations available 

Natural Volume
Extreme Length
Exceptional Definition
Intense Volume
Extreme Volume
Extravagant Lash

False Lashes, £7.50 will be available from late August 2011
