Affordable Makeup // W7 Makeup Review

by - May 21, 2016

After, a break from blogging, I'm back with a affordable makeup review!

So last week I received a package from @w7makeupuk (make sure to check out their website - www.w7cosmetics.co.uk)


I received a contour stick, 'power puff' beauty blender, 'kiss me' plumping gloss and the 'camouflage kit' concealer palette.

Starting things off badly,  the colour of this stick looked as though it would suit my skin colour, however the colour blended to almost nothing and as you can see in the picture below it was quite tilted to one side so when I tried to use it, it broke off :( this is probably because it was mailed but the packaging for some of the products in general does lack quality unfortunately, so if you do decide to purchase these I'd recommend you get them in store!



On to a more positive note, the power puff blender was amazing I definitely know this as I have had it in the past its good for blending foundation and getting in the corners of your eyes for concealer etc. This would be a good beauty blender to buy if your on a budget, or if your wanting a cheap but good quality beauty blender.

The lip plumping gloss was glossy and kept my lips moisturised for quite a long time, it didn't really plump my lips but I haven't used it regularly so I couldn't give you any evidence of that, although it did tingle a bit if that makes a difference? Will update you on that though. (doesn't actually plump your lips) Although, I do love the applicator! The scent of the gloss was also peppermint and was a bit strong so I wouldn't get it if you do not like that sort of scent.



Lastly, the camouflage kit concealer. (partially shown in the first photo) This packaging I was digging! I wasn't expecting too much as its an affordable brand and so when I tried it and didn't really work well as a concealer I wasn't shocked. (it blended out to nothing) It also has many colours concealers in the palette and a concealer brush which is handy, however the brush gives off a black colour when used, not sure if its just mine! (now I use it for smoking the lower lash with black eyeshadow, so it did come in handy haha)

What are your affordable makeup picks?

    1. Agreed! Cream contour gives a better colour pay off to powders but this one didn't really do much unfortunately :(

    1. I've tried the Buxom Lip Plumping glosses and they tingle for hours guess that means it works haha, this one sort of did but I generally like the lip gloss so I'm not that gutted about it x

  5. I haven't tried many w7 products before but I've seen a lot of posts about the brand, seems like it's a bit hit and miss which is a shame x

    1. The original products from this brand are actually really good for the price I've got to say, its usually the dupes they make that don't always work so well for me xx

    1. The plumping gloss doesn't really show a colour on the lips but I love that about it, its good for every day wear or on top of any lipstick as well.

  7. I have never heard of w7, interesting. Seems like their products are 50/50, some bad and some good. Good to know! Thanks for this review!

    1. It's a British brand so you probably wouldn't have heard about it, for the price I'd say they're quite good! Wish I lived in America :( I cant escape the shipping fees when buying from American brands like Colourpop haha

    1. It's really good for the price I'd say, it obviously isn't as good as the Beauty Blender Original but a inexpensive dupe! x
