W7 Make up: A brand review*

Thursday, 12 February 2015





The morning before one of my uni exams, a lovely little parcel arrived at my door with some beauty products to review! I've never used W7 before, so I was very intrigued to try them. They're a much more affordable brand than some of the other favourites..

Full-time lip colour in Mars: Well when they say full time lip colour, they really do mean full time! I tried this and actually had a lot of trouble removing it, however it does say to use an oil based cleanser to remove so my fault for being unobservant. The Mars shade is too bright for me but this would be ideal for someone who constantly wears red on their lips - trust me, it won't budge all day! It's quite good that it also includes a clear gloss, if you want to make your lips 'pop' even more! Not bad at £4.95! I think their shades 'On trend' and 'Angel dust' would suit me better. They're a lot more subtle and less 'in your face.'You can see all the shades by clicking here.


Assorted 10 out of 10 eyeshadow palette: I was impressed with the variety of colours, I think they're all very wearable and the pastel colours will be perfect for Spring!
I've been using the blue shades the most, they do blend together quite nicely. I usually go for neutral shades, so it's quite fun experimenting with the different shades to create new looks.

I have to admit that I prefer matte shadows, but I think the more I use this, the more I'll like it. I also prefer using my urban decay brush to apply these but at £5.95, you can't really complain!




Absolute Lashes Mascara: This was my favourite product sent for review! The packaging makes it look much more expensive than it is (£6.95!!) and resembles Benefit's They're Real mascara. It's really great at lengthening lashes and I never thought I'd say this, but I picked this up thinking I was using my benefit one and didn't notice it wasn't till I put it down - it was that good! I don't think it's a substitute for They're Real, but it's a great alternative that won't break the bank!

Have you tried any W7 products? Which are your favourite?
