Review: No7 Maple Glow Palette

Hey lovelies!

So if you know me at all, you know that I love a good deal and thankfully Boots UK are always on hand with the best deals especially when it comes to No7 products. This post may not be sponsored, although I wouldn't be mad about it if it was haha, but with my new Boots Advantage Card I can see myself shopping up a storm - in moderation obviously!

The deal that I managed to get in on was to purchase two No7 products and get a free No7 Maple Glow Palette which in all honesty is the perfect palette for pre-Autumn - it's a thing trust me!

The four eyeshadow shades included in the palette range from a cream, neutral brown, rusty red and a neutral purple. The makeup look that I went for was a minimal smokey eye which definitely gave me enough sultriness to see out the longer nights before they gradually become shorter and let's be honest, a little duller.

What I was most blown away by though were the two highlighter shades. The best thing is that even in the palette they looked so bright and beautiful, so much so that I instantly knew that with just one swipe, each of the two highlighters would've given me such a radiant glow that would make it look like it was coming from within.

Funnily enough I accidentally managed to get some of the top highlighter on the edge of my brush when I was applying the bronzer and just being able to see the two mixed together made the idea of a shimmer bronzer possible with very minimal work and it was gorgeous.

I did however experience a bit of fallout from the eyeshadows but they were easily removed with a quick swipe of a powder brush. The pigment was great and went on super easily although I would probably finish applying the crease colours before I applied the lid shade and then go back in to touch up the crease if need be since I found that applying the darker colours such as the rusty red or neutral purple seemed to lack a bit of pigment when layered on top of the lid shade - is this unusual or normal with most eyeshadows in your opinion?

Now I know that I was able to get this palette for free but let's talk about the value for money for a minute. This palette includes four eyeshadows, two highlighters, a bronzer and a blusher - that's a lot for one palette when you think of the fact that those kinds of palettes tend to be a little bigger than this No7 one right here. It truly does what it says on the Boots UK website in that it acts as the perfect on-the-go palette for when you're travelling and need a quick touch up.

This palette can definitely take you from day to night and for those pre-Autumn/early Autumn days, whether you're working or going out for the day or night, you can definitely rely on this product to give you that pop of colour and a great glow when you need it most! I will definitely be putting it to work a few more times and I will update you if anything changes.

Let me know in the comment section down below if you'll be picking yourself up one of these palettes to ease yourself into that early Autumn mood!
