Pretty Penny - W7 Cosmetics

W7 Cosmetics is an affordable line of cosmetics out of the UK.  The brand features everything from nail polish to lashes.  In this review, we will look at different aspects of the line including lip, face and eye products.

Argan Oil Lip Balm

This lip balm is a straight forward, nourishing balm.  It keep my lips moisturized without feeling too greasy.  It has a good "slip" to it so it doesn't tug on the lips and provides a good base for any lip product that follows.  It is completely clear and provides a nice shine, so it can be applied on top of a lipstick for added moisture as well.  The packaging is pretty basic and the vibrant color makes it easy to find in a makeup bag for on the go.

Hide It Concealer

I like stick concealers for on the go and easy application.  This concealer is very creamy and easy to blend.  It does not have as much of a matte finish as my everyday concealer does, but that is personal preference.  The coverage is not the best, in my opinion and it has mediocre lasting power on my oily skin.  That being said, this may be better suited to normal/dry skin.

Thick 'em Up Mascara

This mascara says volumnizing but I did not notice much volume added to my lashes after application.  The brush is a stiff, hard plastic with spaced out bristles that more so provide definition and separation than volume.  If it were more of a dense bristle type brush I think I would have seen more volume.  The formula itself is great.  I did not experience any uneven application, clumps or flaking throughout the day.  I particularly liked how this made my lower lashes look.  Overall a nice mascara but not necessarily to provide volume.

Palette

I love neutrals!  This palette is a great staple with warm tones to coordinate with practically any look.  Each of these shades has shimmer so I only found the need to add a matte brow bone shade to balance out my look.  The shades blended easily and wore well throughout the day.  They are not the softest shadows I have worked with but that did not impact their performance.  All-in-all, this is a great palette to go from day to night and also would be perfect to travel with!
