Pur brought us their newest mascara to try out, The Fully Charged magnetic mascara, £18, is unusual and unlike no other. It contains a magnetic polymer matrix which ‘wraps’ a positively charged plastic veil around each lash, to lift, separate and define. Whilst being infused with anti-age ingredients, it helps to prevent premature falling out with thickening, conditioning and lengthening attributes too! We loved the fact this gave us natural looking lashes and helps our lashes stay in for longer as ours tend to shed frequently, and also seem to stain as they are so fair. However this mascara, went on and did its job, and came off when we wanted too!
Next up we tried Pur’s NEW Eye Polish, £17, a pigment eye primer and or topcoat. Available in six shades, this is a portable liquid formula which transforms into a long wearing powder once applied to the skin, with the small silicone pad brush. We found it to be so long wearing, unbelievably sparkly, and we would wear the first nude shade by itself day in day out!. Add another shadow to it for vibrancy, sparkle and depth. But you really don’t need to! It illuminates and makes your eyes pop, for that quick effortless look! (We of course teamed it up with Pur’s Fully Charged Mascara. To give us that final look of upkeep without needing to be full on Night Out!
Every year No7 are renowned for bringing us some of the best beauty gifts with something for everyone in their festive collections. This year they don’t disappoint, so we grabbed the chance to try them out!

We then got stuck in to trying out the No7 Glamorous Nudes Eye Palette, £10
This glamorous compact contains eight No7 Limited Edition Nude Eye Shadow shades to highlight, enhance and define your eyes. A gift set that’s perfect for everyday wear or for creating an understated Christmas party look.
