Tried & Tested: No.7 Shimmer Palette
I received a gorgeous parcel of new No7 products to try from Boots Ireland. Instantly, my greedy mitts were drawn to the new Shimmer Palletes, it’s a pretty gold compact with a hint of 70’s feel to it with a mirror to boot too. I am a big fan of highlighter, it can take you from looking like Mona Lisa in seconds. Ta Dah!
These palettes come in two colours – Caramel and Rose. I received the Rose palette, so I will focus on that one today. Within the Rose compact, there are two pink highlighters along with a caramel and gold shade to bronze with. I found that even mixing the bronze and pink shades together still gave me a lovely healthy glow on my cheekbones, or swirled onto the apple of my cheeks to make a blush. I felt summer ready and glowing – the good kind of glowing.
It’s long-lasting, thanks to the side-fill technology used, the powders are creamier and stay put for longer. I used the shimmer above my cupid’s bow and along the bridge of my nose too. The Shimmer Palette in Rose is multitasking too as I used it as my eyeshadow on the lid of my eye for work a few of the days, saving myself time and money.
This compact product will save you space in your bag too, and if you’re a bit of a Mary Poppins like me with giant bags crammed with products, then this is a saviour. I will definitely be bringing this product on my next holiday with me.
It is price friendly too at €17.50 and it’s available in Boots throughout Ireland and the UK.
