My W7 Eye Shadow Heaven
I have called this post W7 Eye Shadow Heaven for a reason, it's because since I discovered the W7 palettes my eye make up has really been given a new lease of life. My favourite at the moment is a W7 eye shadow collection called "In the Buff" and there's a few reasons it's become my best friend.
There is a selection of really good colours and you get a double ended applicator as well but I've managed to lose that which is why I popped in a Real Techniques brush for the photo. The colours are a mixture of matte and shimmery shades and a couple that can be used as highlighters or on their own for a more natural look.
I found the shadows easy to apply, no fall out off the brush but be careful with the black as it's very pigmented, I use it as a liner and the first time I did it the line was all over the place, and I couldn't wipe it off easily, better to start off with a little bit and build up which is what I do now. The consistency is lovely and I haven't had any issues with the colours disappearing into my creases during the day, I do use a primer though as I find it gives a good base and tends to help all eye shadows to last longer. I thought priming my eyelids was a faff at first, just one more thing to put on but it's well worth it and it only takes a couple of seconds.
All in all this is a great palette for the price so bravo to W7 I say! It's just one of many eye shadow palettes they have on offer, Amazon keep recommending the others to me since I bought this one so I imagine another one will be added to my collection fairly soon, probably in January when I am broke after Christmas but am desperate to buy something nice for myself to get me out of the post festivities slump! I'm partial to a blusher or two and I keep seeing the pretty W7 blusher palettes everywhere and I've read a few blog reviews on them recently and they've all been positive. Maybe I'll get a blush instead?
