I was kindly sent a few w7 goodies in the past week or two and I'm really excited to show you them and how i got on with them! I am nowhere near a professional with using make-up tools and products but i gave my best go at using them. These are my honest views and anything i get sent to use and review will always be the honest truth and opinions!
I received a Face Blender Brush, Brow & Lash Shaping Gel, Eye Primer and two Eyeshadows in 'Platinum' and 'Silver Streak'. I was quite chuffed with what i had received because it was a chance for me to try out products I'd never even think of using! Being such an amateur in the make-up world it really is good to explore new areas of make-up you've never tried and i feel like i really did that with these products.
I'd seen previous reviews on the Face Blender Brush from many bloggers, in which they talked about contouring. As i said, total newbie here, i barely use enough make up to even understand how to do that! But for people who have no clue (like me) it's still a fab brush to help blend powders/cream into the shape of your face. The perfect round shape of the bristles are great for sitting comfortably round the cheek bones which i feel it helps applying any base make-up to begin with. The bristles are super soft and bouncy too so it's a really comfortable brush to use on your skin. For the price of £4.25 you really cannot go wrong with the quality of brush it is.
Now the Brow and Lash Shaping Gel is something I'd never tried before. I don't do much with my brows at all. It's texture is very light and isn't sticky at all so that's an instant positive for me. It does what it says that is for sure, but i feel like it works at lot better for me just purely on the fact i had no product on my eyebrows to begin with... So there's nothing for the gel to battle with the keep the hairs in place. I've read also that the off-putting thing about this item is the packaging, it being a clear product any kinds of make-up can get mixed into the tube causing the gel to change colour. Maybe from the foundation or many powders that your eyebows come in contact with? All in all for me it's a great item, but just beware with what you're mixing with it!
The last two products i used was the Eye Primer and Eyeshadows. I'm going to admit I've never used a Primer for eyes in my life, i really was a disappointing teenage girl i swear... I really didn't think i needed it but boy was i wrong. You really need something to secure your eyeshadows through these horribly hot summer days (yes i am moaning about the weather what's new). A small amount of Primer on each lid is perfect, it was super easy to blend in and didn't feel sticky at all. The two shadows i was given are perfect colours for me too, I'm not a colourful person at all so i only ever go for the silvery/whiter colours, boring i know. But these two little pots were so nice to apply and look great! (Sorry i never got a pic, I'm unwell right now so I'd rather not show off my horrific features right now haha).
So my overall experience was great! Trying new products is always fun cause you feel like you haven't got a clue what you're actually doing. But all in all I'm really happy with the products i received and i can't think w7 enough for letting me try a few out!
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know how you got on.
