N07 Eye Appeal Palette Review

I've had this palette for such a long time now and I can’t believe that I've only just got around to reviewing it. 
N07 Eye Appeal Palette Review
Firstly I let’s talk about the packaging. Although the packaging is pretty, it is a gorgeous purple colour it isn't the most practical. It is one of those cardboard palettes that is magnetic which means that it isn't that secure. Also the individual pans are glued in but they can fall out if you aren't careful. The palette comes with a large mirror and a sponge applicator which I threw in the bin as I never use them.

This palette is a neutral palette but I like that it isn't just browns. There is quite a few different colours which makes it a bit different from other palettes all the colours are really wearable. It is slightly smaller than a lot of palettes as it only has 8 shades rather the usual 10 or 12.

The first shade is a pale cream colour which I use as a brow bone highlight or an inner corner highlight. Sometimes if the look I have created is a bit too dark for every day then I’ll tone it down with this shade. Next is a really pale shimmery pink colour. I don’t use it that often but if I do use it I apply it all over my lid and apply the 4th shade in my crease. I do sometimes apply this over the top of my Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Stick in Vintage Blush. The next shade is a really pretty brown shade. It is a shimmery brown and I either use this in the crease with the 4th shade or I use it by itself all over my lid. The 4th shade is probably my favourite in the whole palette. Whenever I use this palette I always use this shade. It works really well by itself or as a base for other shadows. The next shade is a purple/grey shade that is quite pretty although I don’t use it too often. The next shade is a super shimmery golden brown which I use in my crease a lot. The next shade is a purple colour which works really well in the crease with either shade 3 or 4. The last shade is my second most used in the palette. It is a black shade which in the pan has some red sparkle but that doesn't translate to the eye. I use the black shade to line my upper lash line.

The quality of this palette is ok but there are definitely better quality ones out there. Considering NO7 is quite expensive I didn't think the quality was that great. I got this palette at Christmas time for £10 but all the shades are taken from NO7 trios and quads. I think you can get better quality eyeshadows for much less for example the Makeup Revolution palettes are excellent. I do like this palette for the colour range but I wouldn't want to spend £10 on it.

Have you tried NO7 eyeshadows?
