W7 Review!

Hi guys,

I was lucky enough to receive some make up samples from W7 Cosmetics which is an affordable high street brand based in the UK.

I already own the naked 2 dupe palette by this brand which I love! So as you can imagine, I was excited to try more.

I would like to note that even though I've received these products for free, all opinions are my own and are honestly how I feel.

Anyway it's always nice to get pressies off the postman and I was excited to see what I had to play with :) 

I got the gorgeous Golden Brown eyeshadow palette £5.95. I found these had purple tones mixed with the browns. You get a double sponge applicator included. I would have preferred a brush though.

You get a lovely cream highlight shade, a champagne shade, a taupe and finally a dark brown/purple.

All shades were shimmers and had flecks of glitter especially the darkest colour where you notice the purple more.

I was disappointed at not having any matte shadows. Whilst all were lovely colours, I prefer to blend with mattes and find shimmers can be too much.

I did give the shadows a go and was pleased with the colour payoff and how they blend.

You can see from the picture how the light catches the sparkle in the shadows. I'm not the greatest photographer, so please be gentle with me! Lol.

I did like this set of shadows. Great set of tones with both warms and cools. They can also be mixed up well to create different looks. Again I'd like a matte shadow included to break up the shimmer.

I wore a lid primer and the shadows lasted over 8 hours. I have hooded and oily lids and find shadows fade on me, especially in my crease. Now I did notice some oil, yet the shadow didn't melt away which impressed me.

The next product is the W7 lengthening mascara in black £4.95.
This mascara has a bristle brush, which if you read my mascara post ('ll know I'm not a fan.

This mascara was ok, not too wet which I prefer.
I find this type of brush doesn't grip my lashes and coat them fully, like a synthetic brush does but the formula was nice and it didn't flake or smudge during the day.
I tried to show a picture without liner so you can see how long my lashes look.

Overall nice mascara. Kind of reminds me of the bellapierre which is £19.99. So clearly this one is far better value.

Finally I got a lipstick from the Kiss Chase Collection £4.95. I got the shade Magnifique which is a gorgeous candy pink.
It's goes on slightly opaque with some shimmer and glides on great and is very creamy. 
I did wear a similar coloured lip liner and I'd say the lipstick lasted well.
The colour does fade after a few hours (what lippie doesn't?) but it leaves a shimmery pink over the lips which looks nice and isn't patchy. 

I do love the brand sign on the lipstick. Nice touch :)

Overall a great mix of products with sleek packaging.
The shadows have a nice soft feel, easy to use and blend.
The mascara is perfect for those who like bristle brushes and it does lengthen your lashes. It's just not the mascara for me.
The lipstick was lovely to use. Not drying and even after it faded, it still left a stain on all the lip, so you don't look odd with mismatch colour.

Honestly guys, I'd recommend the W7 brand. Great for those who don't want to spend a fortune on make up without losing quality and if you want to experiment with colours. Low price for fab formulas. 

Give them a try, you won't be sorry!

Have you tried any of the W7 products? What did you think? Share your favourites ladies :)

Much Love,
