Boots No.7 Blogger Event | Plymouth | LittleEllieMae

I was contacted by the team at No.7- Boots, Drakes Circus Plymouth a few weeks ago to help get some bloggers' names together for their very first bloggers event! I've always been an No.7 fan as their products always offer fantastic quality- my first ever makeup set was actually a big vanity case of makeup bits from No.7, years and years ago! So I was super excited to be part of their first bloggers event!

We met at the Grosevenor Hotel in Plymouth, were greeted by the fabulous No.7 advisers and sat down at a beautifully decorated table covered in vintage china tea cups, nibbles and personalised gifts for us all. There was a lot of thought put into this event, with the service and goody bags alike tailored to the individuals, which I thought was really lovely of the team! 

The purpose of the evening was to learn and experience their 'Match Made' service that they usually run on their counters in store. I've always found it difficult to find the perfect makeup products to suit my skin tone; they're either to orange or too pale! 

No.7 use this fantastic device which takes 200 images with LED lights on clean skin, then matches your skin tone to their wide range of 17 different foundation tones. I was matched to the colour 'Calico' which is the palest of the lot (this confirmed that I was waay paler than I thought I was...). I have combination skin and tend to go towards a more radiant finish as my skin can sometimes appear dull looking, so I was matched with their 'Instant Radiance' foundation which gives a good medium coverage. I instantly fell in love with this foundation- its literally the exact same colour as my skin tone, therefore it looks completely natural and it leaves my skin looking so healthy and glowing! I rushed into town a few days after the event to pick up a bottle and I can confirm that its one of my favourite foundations I have ever used!

Not only are you matched to foundation type, from this the No.7 advisers match concealer, blusher and lipstick too! This ensures that all makeup looks as natural as possible and really helps to brighten the face. 

I particularly loved the blush in 'Damson Mist' which is a lovely pink colour! 

I was so happy with my 'Match Made' makeover- I totally fell in love with all of the products! The lipstick I tested was 'Cranberry Kiss' which I thought really brightened my whole face, making me look a lot healthier and lively, haha. 

The team were kind enough to gift us with some lovely festive packages- the pyramid gift set included a cream blush, eyeshadow, mascara and contour eye shadow brush! The cracker gift contained a great lipgloss. 

I really enjoyed the evening- it was nice to catch up with some of the other fab Plymouth bloggers as well as learn more about No.7 as a brand and their fantastic 'Match Made' service! The service along with the products are so great and I can't wait to start using more of them!

Thanks again to the No.7 team at Drakes Circus Plymouth for a wonderful event! Can't wait for another one soon :)
