I was searching on here for a thread about good makeup dupes and saw a few people mention w7 cosmetics being sold on Amazon. Has anyone tried it? Got any recommendations? I'm tempted by the matte glosses and the mascara that looks like a Benefit one. Oh and the eyeshadow palettes. Thanks.
I'm all for affordable makeup but haven't tried anything from W7 that hasn't been pretty rubbish tbh. The eyeshadow palettes in particular had practically zero pigment and were dry and powdery.
Sleek are the best cheap brand for eyeshadow palettes. Also, Wet n Wild which you can buy on Amazon and eBay have incredible quality eyeshadow trios. MUA and Makeup Revolution for blushers/highlighters. Essence at Wilkos is a fantastic makeup range that is cheap as chips (their mascaras are great).
Thanks everyone. I've heard good things about Essence too. Will have to have a look. I just want to find the perfect lipstick. And mascara. And eyeshadow. That are all really cheap. Not too much to ask
I have some w7 products. The dupe for soleil de tan chanel is pretty good. A fraction of the price and impressed me. I don't think any other companies have tried to dupe it. I have an eyebrow tint and wax from them and didn't rate it, preferred the technic version. Have never tried any lipsticks but one of my dds likes the mascara and thinks it's a good as the benefit one she has.
I have a concealer that's decent enough. I bought it when I got a black eye out one day, and dp kept laughing at my face. I don't know if it's just because it's a really good colour match for me, but it's fine.
I've just been looking through my make up and I do actually have a Sleek eyeshadow palette. It'll want throwing away now plus it must be from when I was more adventurous, lots of bright colours and sparkle, but I do remember being happy with the quality.
I think I'm in a bit of a make up rut. I really, really struggle with lipstick. I have one dark red that I wear for nights out but can never find a more day time one. I think it's because I have quite yellow/olive skin. Nothing looks the same on me as it does on other people
