Ok so I’m finally admitting it, Autumn is upon us. No more sunshine, sunglasses, bikinis or sunscreen – not that I would ever wear a bikini – and now we’re left with just cold and miserable weather. Ok maybe I’m being a bit OTT but I feel like I kind of missed the summer as I work in an office, all the sunny days must have happened while I was stuck indoors! Boo!
Anyway I digress! So, while I’m coming to terms with the cooler weather I’m also starting to embrace autumnal beauty shades – namely browns and berry hues. The lovely guys at W7 have sent me some of their gorgeous new Autumn releases to check out and show you, which I’m really excited about as I haven’t used W7 cosmetics before!
First up is their Chunky Eyes eyeshadow pencils, in Coffee, Mocha, Cappucino and Latte. Yes there is a slight coffee theme going on here! These are all gorgeous, easy to wear shimmer shades ranging from cream to dark brown. The pencils give a beautiful shimmery finish, with a fantastic level of pigmentation.
How gorgeous are these colours though!? You can see they apply evenly – and easily, and have a lovely soft texture thats great for blending too. These pencils are a very reasonable £4.95 each so definitely worth stocking up on!
Next are the Butter Kiss lipsticks in Very Berry, Racing Red and Bordeaux. These are part of the Butter Kiss Reds collection and they’re £4.50 each. I have to say I am really impressed with these. As ever, my preconceptions of budget brands meant I wasn’t expecting too much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The formula is super creamy and moisturising, and also amazingly pigmented.The lipstick didn’t bleed or dry out my lips, and lasted a good few hours before I felt I needed to re-apply.
For £4.50 each, these lipsticks are a complete bargain too. Amazing! I feel W7 may be a bit of a dark horse on the cosmetics scene (can you tell I was writing this whilst watching X-Factor??) and I can’t wait to try some more of their products! I really love the Chunky Eyes and Butter Lipsticks, these need to be added to your makeup bag!
I’d love to hear if you have any W7 cosmetics and which products you’d recommend I should try? I hope you enjoyed my review 🙂 xxx
