I have been very fortunate to receive a bundle of W7 products to review. Now I have always been a little dubious of budget brands, being so cheap do you really get what you pay for?
Now the Angle Eyes Palette consists of a beautiful colour range, the perfect combination of matte and shimmers all in the right colours. A base colour, Highlighter colours and dark smoky colours for dramatic looks. I love the versatility of this palette, only having 7 colours and 3 being very similar can be a little off putting but the colours work really well together. As you can see from the swatches, the pigmentation is a little hit and miss. The lighter shades were really hard to work with but the darker shades are really good. So overall not the best I have seen but not at all disappointing. The colours can be built up gradually to achieve a subtle day to a dramatic night look.
On the cover of the W7 Angel Eyes Palette it claims the eye-shadows are ‘Silky’, when I swatched them, I would have to agree with that statement. They feel really buttery when applied and glides onto the skin very smoothly. The swatches above are done with a single stroke.
I did find that the darker the colour, the greater the fallout of powder when applied, but I have come to expect this with high-pigmented eye-shadows. This is now one of my ‘go-to’ palettes on a night out and priced at £6.95 is amazing.
Mascara – W7 Showing Out & W7 Zoom
I am obsessed when it comes to mascaras. A good one can really make a difference to your look. I am always up for big bold voluminous lashes to finish my eyes. So these two mascaras from W7 sounded right up my street. I haven’t tried much from W7 but after this I may have to indulge a little more. Considering this was essentially a bargain mascara I was actually really impressed. I will be honest, It isn’t the best mascara I have tried in my lifetime but it certainly is good. The mascaras really fan out the lashes and gives good separation. As well as giving volume, it does t without getting clumpy. I found it wore very well, I didn’t encounter any smudging or flaking during the day.
I love the bright funky packaging, the intensity of colour is brilliant, it doesn’t clump or smudge which is great. There are no ranges of colours – only black – but I will definitely re-buy for the quality to price ratio.
W7 Nail Polish
Purple isn’t a colour you will find on my nails often, don’t get me wrong, it is a lovely colour – but for my skin tone I tend to go for more pastel shades rather than darker ones. All of that aside, I loved this polish. The image below is of one coat, with no base or top coat and look at that intensity of colour, The polish dries extremely fast which allows you to get on with the rest of the day. The polish wears really well, I had hardly no wear or tear after 3 days, and that is impressive, especially with a little one to run around after. I embellished one of my nails with the W7 Silver Glitter Dust and I love the effect, only a tiny amount is needed and they come in a whole range of colours. I will definitely be back for more.
