As you can tell these pictures were taken in the summer – which I am quite grateful for, because the weather in Newcastle the last few days has been wet, windy, grey and just pure miserable. Not ideal for taking blog photos :( I bought this palette when I was in Amsterdam for a university trip in April. I’m not overly familiar with the brand W7 but I know they are quite popular for doing dupes of things like Benefits boxed blushers and as I’m sure you can tell this is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette, in particular Naked 2! Have a look…
As you can see the shades are pretty much an identical match… I managed to pick this palette up for less than £10. It isn’t the same high quality you get from Urban Decay but for something that is a fraction of the price, and pretty much an identical dupe it is really good! And these days as long as you have a good eye primer underneath you can transform any eyeshadow into one that lasts a good 6/8 hours.
The formula is definitely rich and clearly pigmented! You do have to apply a couple of layers to achieve the correct shade and consistency. Paired with my trusty NARS eye primer the smokey eye look lasted all day, and it was a beautiful sunny day in London at the time ;)
Has anyone else tried any of W7s make up?
