Boots No7 Match Made Lipstick Service #TaDah

On our weekly fix to Oxford street, +Cynthy Chui & I popped into Boots to try out No7 Match Made Lipstick Service

No 7 has cleverly evolved their existing foundation matching technology to the next level. Using the foundation match to find your perfect shades of pink, nude & red lipsticks.
Starting off by taking off a small patch of foundation from your jaw lines. Then using the handheld gadget to detect your perfect foundation shade. The trained No7 expert will do a scan on each side of your face - my two shades are Warm Ivory & Cool Vanilla. 

After knowing my perfect foundation shades, it's the exciting part to find that perfect lipstick!
There are two formulas available : the Moisture Drench, which is moisturising, glossy but sheerer; the Stay Perfect, which a more pigmented, matte effect and longer lasting. 

The No7 expert discussed with me of what sort of shades that I liked, she then suggested four shades for me to choose from, two from each range. In the end, I went for the Stay Perfect range in the shade Auburn Whisper - a dusky rosy nudy pink.

The shade is not very far from what I would have picked, which confirmed I have been doing the right thing all these years... Lol. It also opens me up to other colours that I would not have tried otherwise.

What surprised me is the formula. It is a matte lipstick with great staying power, but it doesn't feel drying at all! My favourite way to wear this is to take a bit of colour using my finger & apply a thin layer on my lips, almost wear it as a stain. I will wear a thin layer daily, and build it up for an evening out.

The fun didn't stop here! Now we were wearing our perfect lipsticks, we should tell the world about it & had some fun pictures taken! And this exactly what No 7 had in store, a photo booth!! Pop in there to record a 60 second video, sing to a little clip of their advert song & have a Polaroid taken for you to keep!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
