Collection #BlushandGlow Blush Palette Review & Swatches

A few weeks ago, Collection released a selection of exciting new products to their brand including some really fab palettes, a very nice addition to see coming into the drugstore as there really is a slight lack of this type of product out there in the drugstore at the moment. 

One of the new palettes that took my fancy straight away was the #BlushandGlow Blush Palette, firstly at a price of just £4.99 this is a palette that will suit everyones budget, the palette contains four very well sized powder products that you can use to create several beautiful looks. There is a bronzer, highlighter and two pretty blushes that I am dying to share with you all! 
I've been trying this palette out ever since I picked it up in Boots and I am completely in love with it and the way it makes my skin look. The bronzer contained in here is actually a really good dupe for NARS Laguna, a bronzer I have had previously and has been my holy grail, until I smashed it. Although the bronze shade does have a slight warm tone to it, it is still completely wearable for all skin tones and I don't find this too warm for my pale complexion, it is definitely more of an all over bronzing shade over a contorting shade for me personally. 

The pigmentation and quality of each powder is great, they don't feel chalky or powdery at all but almost feel buttery and creamy as you blend the product into the skin, and I must say that these are completely foolproof as they blend effortlessly into the skin. What I particularly like about the highlighting shade is that it is very natural, finely milled and has a really beautiful champagne undertone, you won't be left feeling super glittery wearing this, just lightly glowy and healthy! When it comes down to the two blush shades, you can choose between matte or a little shimmer, they are both super pigmented and the colour payoff is exactly what you see in the pan. One shade is slightly lighter and has a more dusky pink effect and the other is slightly deeper and more rosy toned, perfect for this time of year and would look stunning with a good berry lip! 
I'm usually not a fan of the cardboard packaging when it comes to beauty products but for this I actually really like it, it doesn't feel heavy or clumsy meaning I can take it with me wherever I may need to go, the only downside is that the palette does not contain a mirror but instead I can carry one separately no problem. I really cannot recommend this little quad palette enough and if you haven't already snapped it up from Boots or Superdrug you should definitely do so, especially whilst the 3 for 2 is still on! This palette really is perfect for achieving a radiant and healthy complexion. 

Whats your favourite bronzer this Autumn/Winter?
