I find it hard to let those No7 £5 off vouchers go to waste, but since I've stockpiled enough eye make up remover, wipes and hot cloth cleanser to do me until 2015 I had to find something else to spend it on. Down the years I've tried a lot of No7 make up courtesy of these vouchers and have been left distinctly underwhelmed by most of the permanent line, apart from the Stay Perfect Foundation, Tinted Moisturiser and some of the Limited Edition collections.
The Pewter eye mousse caught my eye first as I am going through a major obsession with taupey/purple/grey eye shadows at the moment (hello Bobbi Brown Fawn and Chanel Fauve!) and thought this would create the perfect base. Plus how easy is this to swipe on in the morning rush?! I've only tried them with eyelid primer and they 'stay perfect' all day, even in the heat, but I'm yet to risk them on their own. I also go over with some shadow to set further. Both of these colours really compliment blue eyes.
I'm not sure I'd be happy to stump up the full £9.50 per tube as they are pretty small and it's a little hard to control how much you squeeze out, so there can be a little wastage, but £4.50 is a pretty good bargain. My next No7 voucher has the lovely pink champagne colour's name on it. There are about 3 or 4 other shades in the range so it's definitely worth checking out if you have one of these vouchers burning a hole in your pocket!
