Boots Summer

This morning, pre-work (yep, that’s dedication to beauty for you) I popped along to the Barbican Centre to check out what’s coming for Summer from Boots. So here are some pics that I snapped of bits that caught my eye… heads up – the Summer collection from No7 is a beauty.

The event was at The Barbican Centre in the conservatory, which was like a little tropical jungle…


The Soltan range is launching a new Protect and Tan SPF range – I expect this is designed in a way like the Nivea Protect and Bronze that I absolutely love, so this is exciting for any pale, impossible to tan people out there like me!


The real stars of the show are the new make-up goodies coming from No7 and 17… first up, the Summer Limited Edition range from No7. Designed to give that easy, healthy, glowy look that’s perfect for Summer. With a little pop of sparkle or colour.

The glitter nail colours are simply stunning – proper chunky glitter bits in silver and gold. Gorgeous top coats for any colour.

Then look a the amazing little bronzing/highlighter powder – the packaging and the sparkle overspray are so pretty.


There was also this little quad of eye shadows – I love the combination of grey and pink. This little compact is actually a gift with purchase, and not on it’s own either – it comes with a whole little make-up bag with other little travel sized products (free when you purchase two No7 products).


Then I checked out 17’s latest offerings – the most exciting for me is the matte skin primer. I tend to get a shiny t-zone but like a bit of glow in the cheeks – so using a matte primer before a foundation is my preferred approach to the sort of finish I want. I also like how slim the primer packaging is.

17 are also rolling out the new launch mascaras at the moment too.. I think this is the third one this year!? Blow Out is another big fat brush… will review shortly. Complexion is the focus for 17, providing the matte, perfected finish – so you can go to a festival and ideally not end up looking like a sweaty mess!


So there’s the little preview of what I spotted at the Boots Summer press show… it really was lovely to have a little taste of Summer, excited for sunshine now…

    I seriously want that eye quad – it’s stunning, I cannot believe it’s a GWP!
    The matt primer is great as well, they seem to be stepping up a gear with the 17 range, been really impressed with it.

    Summer Limited Edition range looks so beautiful! The nail polishes are the best from this collection 😉

    Oh my word, that packaging is so lovely! Very much looking forwards to seeing all this on the shelves. I don’t really tend to buy cheap mascaras as they never seem to work so I’m looking forwards to your mascara review too!
