This Christmas, it appears like most beauty brands are releasing a set of beauty crackers as part of their Christmas gifts range. When I was placing an online Boots order, I took advantage of their 3 for 2 promotion across Christmas gifts, and I chose the No7 Cracker Collection as my ‘free’ third item. The No7 Cracker Collection is just £16, and contains six beautiful No7 crackers which are different shades of red and pink with colour coordinated bows.
Each of the foiled crackers contain a beauty product, alongside a bright pink paper hat and a beauty tip which I think is a really cute touch, and these crackers would be amazing for a party or Christmas dinner with your girlfriends.
The six crackers contain either a 11ml No7 BB Lips Beauty Balm which are full size and worth £9 each or a 4ml No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour worth £2.40 each making the value of the contents £34.20 which is amazing value considering the set costs only £16. The three shades of the BB Lips are Blink Pink, Ballerina and Blush Coral, and the three polish shades are MeMeMe, Temptress and Cheeky Chops.
I already have the BB Lips in Blink Pink, and I love it so I’m happy to have a back up as I use it all the time as it’s such a pretty pink which I wear whenever I don’t know what else to wear. Ballerina is the perfect nude shade, whilst Blush Coral is a pinky peach shade. The BB Lips are super comfortable on the lips, and they are really glossy without being at all sticky, plus they contain an SPF of 15 too.
I haven’t tried any of the No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour polishes before, but they claim to have pigment rich colour with a quick drying ultra gloss finish. MeMeMe is a very bright pink, Temptress is a deep berry shade whilst Cheeky Chops is a peachy pink and I really like all three shades, and they’re generous sizes too. I think this giftset is such a great deal, and I’m really pleased that I chose it as it’s worth it alone for the three full size No7 BB Lips Beauty Balms.
