Weekly review....17 All About Nude quad...

Hey lovelies...I've literally only had this a day and I have to tell you all about it. You may have seen it in Boots, if you buy any two items of their makeup you get this nude quad free....

First of all, gorgeous packaging. Shiny white colour with black writing, nice and chunky feeling, with a sturdy clasp and a good mirror inside. So far, so good...

On first impression, I wouldn't have assumed these were particularly 'nude' colours, especially the lip colour. 

These are the eyeshadows, a bronze/brown and a pinky gold. They have amazing pigmentation, don't crumble, and stay put ALL day (trust me I wore them both on my eyes today)

The cream blush doesn't really show up as having much colour pay-off on here, but it actually gave me a lovely glow, and as a firm lover of powder blushes over cream, this actually surprised me a lot. I want to find out if they do this shade in their core collection and if they do I'm most definitely buying it as a makeup bag staple.

I love this lipgloss, and with all the other shades worn at the same time it really complements them well.

All in all I love this. It's great to have a quad/palette with nearly a full face all in one place where all the colours and shades look great together so you don't have to give it too much thought as you rush to leave the house in the morning. 

I took a close up of the eyeshadows for you to see how they work blended together...
(please excuse the eyebrows, I'm getting them waxed on Saturday so can't pluck!!)

And here's my face with all four elements of the quad used. Apologies for looking rough, this was before 7am this morning! 
All in all, my advice is to get yourself to Boots and buy a couple of 17 products so you can pick one of these up. So handy to not have to think about what blush goes with what eyeshadow in the morning. Anything for an easy life in my opinion!!
