Cheep and cheerful: W7 blushers

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?

    These look so pretty, and what a bargain! I confess to never having heard of this brand before. Which shop did you purchase in?

    I got them in Sligo in Cara Pharmacy, there’s a full range out there with mascaras, lipglosses, eyeshadows and eyeliners.

    Karen if you like glittery eyeliners, you should check out the w7 ones. Far better then the Urban Decay! Have 3 of them, must to a blog post and compare with UD
