Having owned a few of the W7 makeup pieces , I was intrigued to see that they had a palette with a selection of 10 browns in one place.
Cost - £5.95
Where to buy - W7Cosmetics.co.uk
What they say about the product -

Having tried their fabulous purple haze palette previously I was actually expecting something very similar in quality but I was very much surprised with this compared to that product in particular considering it was only last month I used Purple Haze.
My thoughts on this product -
For a starters, the packaging was once again very sleek and easy to clean.
The only downside to the whole thing , (well 2 in fact) was that there was no mirror inside which would have been a nice touch and also the cheap looking makeup brushes which once again is unwelcome and useless to anyone unless you are aged 8 and even then my daughter uses proper brushes not sponge applicators like this.
W7 do have a lovely selection of brushes , so it is still a wonder as to why they are not adding these into their palettes as I know it would be much more appealing to the buyers than the current ones.
(I do have a few of them in my possession which I will be doing a review for shortly on this blog so keep an eye out ).
In my opinion, the Urban Decay Naked palettes will never be beaten on quality for the nude shades but for those who can not afford to delve into paying £37 for one palette, sometimes the smaller brands with products that offer affordability and similar shades is often the best next thing.
I have heard that their other palettes such as ''In the buff'' have been referred to as Dupes for the Naked palette except for the far of cheaper value of only £9.99 ,but as of yet to try it .
In fact for me, I would love to try the ''In the Night'' Palette . I am a total sucker for the purple shades.
The downfall to this palette for me is that it did not give me the greatest of pigmentation that I would have hoped for. The shades were very faint .
This is ok as I like to wear neutral shades but for someone who likes to show of their shades , this would be a downside.
For only £5.95 it is a bargain to own with so many different choices of brown .
The great thing about this palette is that you get 10 great different shades of brown for a small price and a fantastic mix of max shimmer, matte and slight shimmers which blend and work well with each other making this palette wearable on everyone , no matter their skin tone.
For me I feel the matte shadows are harder to grab hold of at an affordable price more these days, the love for matte shadows simply fade away behind the stunning shimmers we all very much sought after and this palette has very little and even with a great primer they seem rather chalky in my opinion so for me this was another downfall.
The shimmers work so much better and their pigmentation is so much defined also .
The fourth across from the left on the top row (that almost copper gold shade) is my favourite and in fact seems one of the boldest of the shades when applied.
This shade (I am calling it golden copper as none of them have a name ) is a lovely subtle golden shimmer , perfect for that light shimmer on a nude eye.
If you are looking for an affordable palette of nude / neutral shades then paying this small price would be a great buy , will you be reaching for it?
