No7 Eyeshadow Palette


Hello you lovely lot! This day last week marked my 23rd year inhabiting this big blue and green orb we like to call Earth. It's quite mind-boggling to think that I'm steadily getting along in my twenties when I still actually possess the mentality of a teenager, clutching on for dear life to those delicious moments where getting ID'd makes me feel like a schoolgirl again. I love birthdays, I love how people obtain this sort of special pass on their birthdays, temporarily excusing them from the monotonies of the real world. Today, simply slipping in that it's your birthday can get you home early from work, absolves you from attending class, heck it can even get you a free drink if you're really vocal about it. I love birthdays, I love how for that one day a year, instead of it being Martin Luther King Day, it'll be forevermore regarded as Claire Fearon Day.

This year saw me showered with gifts galore, one of which I was particularly smitten with - The No7 Eyeshadow Palette. This beauty has just hit the stores as part of the Christmas gift collections and the palette couldn't be more perfect. Naturally, around the time of Halloween you witness a lot more daring and vibrant hues popping up in palettes, with purples, greens and blacks usually eclipsing the more natural autumnal tones. The 20 shades within the No7 Eyeshadow Palette are all firm favourites of past, popular No7 palettes, so you know you're in for a treat!



The colours vary from soft nudes to warm browns, there's even some gorgeous green, grey and copper shades included enabling you to create a natural daytime look or a dazzling nighttime smokey eye. The colours appear lovely and pigmented, with some shades even featuring a glittery formation. And can I let you in on a little secret? This palette doesn't cost an arm and a leg, as it's currently priced for a ridiculously reasonable £20! Oh, what's that I hear? Could it be the sound of your laptop hitting the floor as you hurriedly speed out to your nearest Boots? 

Or it can alternatively be bought here. Happy shopping lovelies!





  1. I don't wear eyeshadow (I can never be bothered!) but this has changed my mind, there's some gorgeous colours. I might have to add it to my Christmas list!

    1. The palette is about the same size as an iPad, and so is the accompanying mirror. For £20 it's an absolute steal! The colours are so versatile too and can be combined to make some gorgeous looks :)

    1. Exactly my thoughts sweetie! There's some lush tones which you can dress up for a naughty night time look or just keep it natural for day time :)

    1. Oh my god Jessica, this is the perfect nude palette <3 The warmer browns are so lovely but then there's also the inclusion of copper, green and grey which I was also excited to experiment with! Would be a great versatile palette for both day time and night time looks :)

  7. This looks absolutely beautiful! I actually live next door to a Boots so I am tempted to run down and see if I can get it but I'm not sure how well my PJs would go down... Will be keeping an eye out when I'm more suitably dressed! x
