I’ve been meaning to write about W7 blushers in ages, i even had the photos taken months ago. I picked them up while i was still living in Sligo, mainly because i heard a rumour that they were made in the same factory that Benefit is made (my manager at the time heard it from a W7 rep). Plus they were only 2,49 euro and came in a cute packaging, what not to love.
Of course i picked one in every color, it would’ve been rude not too!
N.B. Went a bit picture happy here

I tried to take pictures using natural light and flash in a try to recreate the shades with accuracy. Still, the colors are nicer in real life, being more pigmented.
Lets proceed to the swaches, shall we:
In natural light
As you can see, all of them have a bit of shimmer going on, nothing to overpowering though. I use them mainly as highliters, on top of a blusher or a bronzer just to spice things up a bit. I’m sure fairer complexions can use them by themselfs, for a beautiful sheer look.
Pigmentation wise, they are pretty good and what i love most, all of them have a creamier texture as opposite of a chalky-powdery one.
Did i mention that i paid only 2.49 euro?
