W7 Cheeky Trio
W7 is a cheap and cheerful brand that often gets overlooked, I think. It’s stocked in places like The Perfume Shop and Asda and unless you’re a regular shopper in those places, the entire brand could easily pass you by. However, it’s got some very decent budget products and I’ve pulled out the W7 Cheeky Trio of blushers because there aren’t all that many blush palettes around.
I could very easily have swatched these shades from a NARS palette – a warming bronze, a pinky coral shade and a highlighter. I guess you could talk degrees of quality – the shades are where any similarity with NARS ends, but despite the fact that the quality isn’t the same, it’s really not bad. I found them to be soft and easily blendable (I haven’t tested for last) which is about all you need for a cheek colour. The illuminator is a rather poor version in that it isn’t all that illuminating and probably would work best with the bronzing powder as a contour shade.
But otherwise, for the on-offer price of £5.99, I think the W7 Cheeky Trio is pretty good. I like the tin packaging, although it’s not portable, but as a decent, staple blush set to keep in your stash, I’m finding it hard to criticise. As far as on-line stockists go, it’s HERE.
