AFFORDABLE BEAUTY BUYS FROM CHEMIST WAREHOUSE FEATURING W7 COSMETICS - LIPSTICKS, NAIL POLISH, NEUTRAL NUDE EYESHADOWS + MANY MORE, REVIEW!


HEY EVERYONE! 

If there's a particular affordable cosmetic brand you should look to check out, that definitely has to be W7 Cosmetics! 

They are a Britain cosmetic brand that was created back in 2002 and consist of an extensive beauty range at such affordable prices. There are over 500 beauty products within their collection and prices have been kept low which is a positive for us customers when it comes to shopping in the beauty market. Their range includes, lipsticks, bronzers, eyeshadow palettes, and many types of mascaras along with many more. 

I hope you enjoyed my flatlay from the above image because these are all of the products from the W7 brand that I have looked to test out to see what each product is about. They're definitely super fun and sassy to play with and most importantly, you cannot go wrong with the price point of these beauties. These beauty products are easily found in your nearest Chemist Warehouse store in case you were wondering. They are super easy to find if you're living in Australia and the best thing of them all, is that they're fun! 

Check out the W7 products below to see what I thought of them! x 

 W7 ABSOLUTE LASHES

Featuring their mascara in the shade blackest black. This mascara does many wonders as it does not look to clump or leave any obvious smudges after applying it onto the lashes. The mascara is fully pigmented and when applied onto the lashes, it goes on very smoothly and with ease. I would have to say this is more affordable for those on a budget and the best thing of it all, is that it really looks to do the job so I am happy! 

The wand itself comes in a plastic form of a brush which looks to comb each lash really well and makes it look more voluminous. I love using these type of brushes because it helps with brushing my lower lashes with mascara without the hassle and stress of ruining my make-up. In regards to the length that it gives to lashes, I have to say they are super natural looking and does not look fake so this is a positive factor to note. There is no smudging and transferring which is also ideal when it comes to looking for a good mascara within the budget. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

 W7 LASHTASTIC FALSE LIQUID LASHES 

Featuring the W7 Lashtastic False Liquid lashes mascara which looks to provide tremendous volume and length to your lashes. The applicator itself is quite large-rounded and makes applying on mascara easy as possible. There are no hassles or concerns when used and I am definitely satisfied with the overall results of this mascara. 

It looked to thickened my lashes along with lengthening them which is always good to see about this mascara. The brush did a good job in looking to separating each lash and then coating it with the formula which looks to bring out sexier and longer looking lashes. The mascara lasts for the whole day without any flaking or smudging which is good. And another factor to consider is that it is so easy to wash off! (Making your life much easier after a night out). I really enjoyed using this mascara as my lashes looked super naturally coated with the formula and of course more lengthened. The fact that it's an affordable mascara really makes me to re-think using this particular mascara in the long term as it's much affordable and does the job at the end of the day. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $4.99 
  • Available at Chemist Warehouse stores around Australia. 

W7 NAIL POLISHES IN SHADE 65 SILK + 88 RASPBERRY SORBET 

Then, we have some funky nail polishes from the W7 range where I have tested out two lovely shades being Silk and Raspberry Sorbet. They somewhat have the same resemblance as the OPI nail polishes but the formulas are different. The shade in Raspberry Sorbet is pretty and elegant looking. The colour is of a super hot pink shade which looks so glamorous on the nails. As for the shade in Silky, it definitely makes a really nice nude shade to rock during the summer season. Two coats are enough to cover the nails but I have only used one coat for the images above. When topped off with a top coat, it would look even more stunning. I am quite impressed with W7 nail polish coverage and again you cannot beat its price with this stunning looking nail polish range. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $4.99 
  • Available at Chemist Warehouse stores around Australia. 
W7 LIPSTICKS IN VAMPIRE KISS AND NAUGHTY NUDIE 

These are amazing lipsticks, one being very sheen (Naughty Nudie) whilst the other one being matte looking (Vampire Kiss). Both lipsticks when swatched feel very nourishing and moisturising on the lips and they do a wonderful job in bringing out your lips with a nude or bold colour. They're very pigmented and do not require much swatching to achieve a desired shade. I am quite impressed with the overall colour and wear of these lipsticks by the W7 range as they offer such vibrant shades. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $4.99 
  • Available at Chemist Warehouse stores around Australia. 
SWATCHED 

Top features: W7 Lipstick shade in Vampire Kiss; The shade looks very matte and vibrant. Great to wear when going out or when you're wanting to make a bold statement with your lips. 

Bottom features: W7 Lipstick shade in Naughty Nudie. The shade pictured here is very nude looking and is so easy to wear with just about any coloured outfit. So ideal for day wear as well! 

W7 SKIN FRESH CONCEALER IN FAIR 

Featuring a concealer which comes in a tube and feels so much easy to handle and very hygienic as well. The concealer is presented in a 12ml tube which is more than enough to last you several months. The tip applicator is slanted so it makes it easier for the concealer to pour out onto your hands or so. You can just squeeze the amount as desired to avoid product wastage. There is no wand applicator which means it comes with no germs.
The consistency of this particular concealer is quite thick and is definitely aimed to cover and conceal dark circles for the whole day's wear. It's more of a medium coverage and can assist with a decent coverage for up to 4-5 hours. However, when set with a primer, it can last longer.

W7, IN THE CITY, NATURAL NUDES, EYE COLOUR PALETTE 

Featuring a Natural nudes eye colour palette by W7 In the City, this palette consists of 6 matte eye shadows, Wigwarm, Troy, Brass, Touch, Autumn and Andrea. The palette comes in a tin packaging which fits perfectly in my handbag and is so easy to clean. 

The eyeshadows are quite matte looking and feel very soft to touch. As for the blending properties, it looks to blend very easily and the colours are so easy to wear on a daily basis. Each colour can be used for a different purpose meaning for example you could use the lighter cream shades as highlighters whilst the darker shades could be used on your lower lash lone. The colours last all day long without any fall outs and being only $4.99, it's such an affordable eye colour palette to check out. 
W7 BOOM! BIG BOLD EYES CRAYON EYELINER 

Featuring a crayon type of bold eyeliner that comes in a unique pencil type of crayon by the W7 brand. I am a sucker for eyeliners - pencil, gel or liquids...I have definitely tried them all.. but I have not yet tried the crayon version of an eyeliner until I stumbled upon the W7, Boom! Big Bold Eyes Crayon Eyeliner. 

It's definitely great used as a smokey-eyed effect when blended using a cotton bud. It's so easy to blend with and you could create different eye looks using this amazing crayon. The crayon goes on very smoothly and best of all is so affordable from the W7 range. The staying power lasts all day long which makes it perfect if you're wanting an eye product that will literally stay on for a long time. Overall, it's great for a smoky eyed effect or if you are wanting to make a statement with your eyes. 

RAVISHING RASPBERRY LIP BALM BY W7

This is definitely the cutest lip balm in a tin I have seen by date. It smells of luscious raspberries and looks to coat the lips with added moisture for the lips. What better way to rock this summer by looking to take care of your lips! Add a little touch of sweetness to your lips whenever, wherever! 

W7 BRONZER MATTE COMPACT 

Featuring a matte bronzer which is made ideal for contouring of the sides of the cheeks and face. It's a really nice matte bronzer which isn't too dark which is good. The colour is of a light-medium shade of brown which looks very warm when applied onto the face. You don't even need that much product on the brush to create a natural bronzed glow and as they say...a little sure goes a long way for this bronzer by W7 cosmetics. 

I simply love this particular bronzer because it's quite natural looking and does not even look fake which is good. Many other bronzers may look too orange or dark but for this one - it looks so natural I am seriously in love with it. The product can last you about a year giving that there's enough in the pan. The product does not exceed more than $5AUD which is amazingly affordable if you're shopping on a budget! It's definitely my favourite go to daily product!
