W7 London Eyes Eye Shadow Palette!

W7 London Eyes Eye Shadow Palette* (£5.49)

New for spring 2014 from W7 is this fabulous looking eyeshadow palette. I like the mix of neutrals, light pastels and slightly deeper, more smoky shades. It's one of those palettes that's really pretty to look at and I think that it'll prove to be quite versatile. There are lots of bronze shades that could create a beautiful neutral look, the light aqua blue would look stunning on the lower lash line for a fun flash of colour for spring and the dark purple, moss green or black could be added for a smokey eye.

There are quite a few light shades that look very similar both in the pan and when used on the eyes. The pigmentation of a lot of these lighter shades isn't the best, but they do make nice base colours and are quite handy for blending as well as highlighting the inner corners. I do think there was the potential to include a little more variety, perhaps a few more pastel colours and some taupes would have been nice. The darker colours are much more pigmented. I especially like the deep grape purple, the bronze, and the four colours on the right of the palette.

All the shades feel pretty soft. A lot of them are a little on the powdery side and there's a little bit of fall out, but I think if they were applied with a damp brush that could be avoided. W7 are a brand that I'm quite impressed with. Their products are always so affordable and the quality is pretty good. I definitely think a lot of their products make a really nice introduction into the world of make up.

Have you ever tried anything from W7?

  3. I've never tried anything from W7 before, this palette looks so pretty though! But I don't think I'd be brave enough to try any of the shades, I'm too scared to even try neutrals xxx

  4. I really like the look of this palette! I'd agree with you that the lighter shades are all a bit same-y, but there isn't a single shade in there I wouldn't know how to wear.

  9. The lighter shades always seem to struggle with pigmentation with cheaper palettes I find however as a whole I think this palette is pretty darn good to be honest :)

  14. I really like the pink and the purple but I feel like I've already basically got all of the other shades to try this palette. A shame as those two are so nice!

    Funnily enough I was just reading about a W7 lipgloss that comes with a light & mirror which I thought was such a cute twist!
