W7 Angel Eyes Silky Eye Shadow Palette


This is my first experience with W7 products. I'd heard bits through the grapevine, I'm always hearing really positive things about their boxed blushes. Although I was always tempted, I'd not got round to trying anything out for myself. W7 always struck me as a brand that was great value and perfect for trying out new looks without breaking the bank.

I am a big fan of neutral shades so when I was sent the Angel Eyes palette to try out I knew I would get a lot of use out of it and would be able to give it a good trial!

W7 Angel eyes silky eye shadow palette retails at £6.95 and you get 7 shades in total -that's less than £1 a shadow! There are 4 matte shades and 3 with a shimmer
 to  them. These lovely neutral shades are cased in a really sturdy black plastic casing, there's no worry of damaging the eye shadows as they are really protected inside.

The palette comes with a foam applicator, which to be honest I won't use but it's nice of them to include one as some people must like the option (I assume they do research into these things). The one thing I love about the packaging is the big mirror. I often do my eye make-up up close rather than at a big mirror so holding the palette in front of me works really well.

The shadows themselves are really soft and pigmented, I did find the lightest shade needed a bit of building up to be noticeable but with a primer or a cream base it  shows up better. It makes for a great base shade to build on. I had no problems with any other shade at all, they were really nice and pigmented. I usually prefer a shimmer eyeshadow but the matte shades really impressed me. They weren't at all chalky and blended really well.

I'll get the most use out of the 3 pinky-brown shades but there's not one shade that will go unused.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with W7, my first impression is definitely a good one. I definitely look forward to trying out a few more bits and pieces!






I was sent this for review but as always all thoughts are 100% my own
