W7 Make up Review

Recently I have been trying out a few products from the W7 make up range so I thought that I would do a quick review of a few of my favourite products as not only are they reasonable priced the range also does some great dupes on items of more expensive brands. 

W7 Chunky Bronzer- I've been wanted to try a bronzer stick for a while as they are great for contouring and for giving you the perfect cheek bones. I've had my eye on a the NARS Bronzing Stick for a while but at £30 I just couldn't quite justify buying it. So when I came across the W7 Chunky Bronzer I just had to have it! At £4.95 it is a pretty good dupe of the NARS bronzer and definitely does the job of defining your cheek bones. 

Angel Eyes- I don't wear eye shadow much but I love the neutral colours that this eye palet has, they really help to give your eyes a little pop and add a bit of glamour.

City Slicker Eye Make up Remover- I absolutely love this! A lot of eye makeup removers that I have used before by other brands I haven't really liked. This is mainly because they were quite oily making my eye lids and lashes feel greasy after and often irritated my eyes. However this eye remover isn't oily at all and takes off my eye make up like a dream! One quick splash on a cotton wool pad and a quick wipe on my eyes and my make up is removed.

Have you tired any W7 make up recently? Let me know what you think!

My Weekend- Mini Haul

This weekend just gone I popped out to lunch with my nan, after having our sandwich and tea in M&S we always have a little mooch round the shops. I only picked up a few items as I'm trying not to spend too much money at the moment, but we all need a bit of retail therapy once in a while!
If you know me then you know that I love a good bargain, I hardly ever buy anything that doesn't have a price discount. 

My Purchases:-
H&M Long Sleeve, Navy Stripped top. 
Originally £12.99 but I got it for a fiver! Bloody Bargain I say! Stripes come in fashion and go out of fashion quicker than you can say Jack Robinson. I thought this would be great for autumn, as the material is really soft and thin so will be great to wear under thicker jumpers. 

Accessorize Long Silver Spiked Necklace. This was a bit of an impulse buy really, I don't have that any long necklaces and wanted one to wear with plain tops as they allow you to dress an outfit up but not as much as a statement necklace would. Again this was on sale, reduced from £12 to £3.60.

Measureable Difference- Amplyfing Lash and Brow Serum £3.99 & Measureable Difference- Liquid Eyeliner £2.99.
I picked up these two products from TKMaxx, I could literally spend hours in there looking at all the beauty products. You can find some great buys and more often than not designer make up items that are half of the price! Again these were a bit of an impulse buy, I needed a new eyeliner and I liked the idea of a serum that would apparently strength my lashes and brows. 

So far I'm really impressed with the liquid eye liner, the thin brush allows me to make perfect flicks on my eye lids. However I do get quite watereyes in general and the eyeliner smudges easily which is a bit unfortunately. 
On the other hand I'm not hugely impressed with the serum, again the brush is really thin and I'm a little uncertain on how to make the most of the product through application, maybe a mascara style brush would have been better to allow the product to be applied more successfully. Anyways I'm going to stick with it for a bit longer and see whether it does make a difference to the strength and look of my eyelashes and eyebrows.

Have you got any of these items? Or have I tempted you to buy one of them?
Let me know!

Peace and Love
