Face: No7 Cheek Tint in Romantic

16 October 2012

I picked this up quite a while ago when Boots were running a £5 off no7 voucher (and combined with a friends staff discount, paid the grand old price of a £1), and left it to gather dust in my drawer for a while, hence the first picture - oops! As you probably already know from past posts I'm a massive cream blush fan, so picked this up after thinking that was what this was.

In actual fact, once swatched this literally is a lovely, but *very* sheer pink tint. The name 'Romantic' is perfect for this product, as it gives you that gentle flush that lovebirds normally only have. I wouldn't consider this to be a blusher, as it's so very sheer, but its lovely for days when I want a very natural, back to basics look. I took this to Croatia with me as most days I went foundation-less but just wanted a nice gentle (with gentle being the optimal word here) flush to the cheeks. I did try to photograph swatches, but the colour is so light that it's not so easy to pick up. However, think of it as like a washed out version of NYX's Rose Petal (swatches here).

I've probably not done a great job of selling this, as everyone loves pigmentation, right? But really this is the perfect blusher for a natural flush. I've been reaching for this on an almost daily basis, and I'd recommend picking it up in the next round of £5 off vouchers because the shade is just the prettiest pink - and for £3, you can't really complain!


  1. such a shame it isn't more pigmented ! xx
