W7 Christmas Product Launch Event!

A few weeks ago I attended a W7 event with the lovely Kimberley from Kimberleys beauty blog and as soon as we arrived the lovely PR girls were on hand to show us around, introduce us to new products, answer all our questions and let us swatch as much as we wanted too.  The range of products we got to see was huge, there was every kind of make-up product you could think of, nail polishes, hair dye and some new products in the skincare range.

I am quite a fan of W7 especially their In The Buff palette which you can see HERE, it is quite a good dupe of a well known brand!  The products from W7 are high street based making them affordable and the quality is really good, I am lucky that in my local shopping centre there is a W7 cart, so I can get my hands on quite a few products.



The first items we looked at was the new skin care range first which includes six products at some really amazing prices, so we have:
  • Dream Clean Cleanser which has an RRP of £3.95 -  If you like a hint of Lavender in your products, then you will like this, it is quite a subtle hint and not too over the top.
  • Wakey Wakey Day Dream Cream with an RRP of £3.95 - This is like a balm rather than a cream and it absorbs itself really quickly into the skin leaving no trace it was ever there behind. Instead you have soft, smooth skin.
  • Nighty Night Dream Cream with an RRP £3.95- The night cream isn't as thick as your usual eye creams, I often find that some high street brands have quite a thick formula which are quite heavy on the skin, this one doesn't and again it absorbs quickly.
  • Love Your Hands with an RRP of £3.95 - This is a citrus scented hand cream that leaves your hands feeling soft and smooth.
  • Eye Love It with an RRP of £3.95 - This eye cream has a very light texture so it absorbs quickly and doesn't feel as though it is clinging to your skin.




What I loved about all of these products was the firstly their names, quite quirky and fun and for me they stand out because of the bright pink packaging, put alongside other products in stores like Boots.

One of the best products of the night for me, which I featured on my Instagram, was the Christmas Advent Calendar! Oh yes, it is a good one and it is only £12!! Having had the chance to have a look at it, see the products inside it, I can only tell you that it is brilliant value for money, not to mention a little bit of fun and much cheaper than some of the alternatives which are about to hit all of our inboxes I am sure!



For those of you who have never comes across W7 products before, if you look closely enough you will see a slight resemblance to some other brands which I mentioned on the night and what I like about this is that they are giving said brands a real run for their money, would you pay £20+ for a mascara if a £4.99 does a better job? No, I thought not.  W7 have a huge range of products such as eyelashes, mascaras, blushers, bronzers, foundations, lip crayons, chubby sticks, lip and cheek sticks and a chubby bronzer which I was quite taken with, quite a novel concept which works really well and is on my list of products to try.





After swatching everything to death, always the fun part, it was time to relax with some bubbles and play with an enormous number of nail polishes.  I found it quite relaxing sitting there, choosing which colours I liked the look of, apply them to my nail wheel and if it took my fancy add a bit or glitter or some other polishes to it.

  1. W7 always seem to have good dupes, particularly for benefit lets be honest here, but I can never find them in shops. I only ever seem to see their products online, which is odd. I need to get my hands on some of those highlighters and lip and cheek tints that I've seen people raving about!
