Back in April I made a small purchase of a few W7 products from FragranceDirect, you can see which products I bought HERE. I’ve already written a review of the In The Mood PaletteHERE. So today I shall share with you my thoughts of the Cheeky Trio Palette.
The packaging for this cheeky trio is so pretty, its a pink ombre tin with the branding in gorgeous gold.
Inside the tin there are 3 really good-sized products, bronzer, blusher and highlighter. I love how each product have the wave pattern within them. Let’s start with the bronzer. It’s a really nice matte bronzer so great for contouring, it’s nicely pigmented and easily buildable to the intensity you want. It lasted a fair while on my skin and it didn’t turn orange. The blusher is one of the prettiest pink shades of blusher I’ve seen, it’s gorgeous and I use this more than any other at the moment. It’s a good pigment and payoff on the skin and it blends really nicely too, it gives my cheeks a rosy glow that lasts for a few hours. Meanwhile the highlighter just didn’t do anything for me. There is no payoff, It wouldn’t pick up on my brush and there is no sheen to it at all. I know that I shall definitely use the bronzer and blusher, but the highlighter will remain in the tin un-touched. Check out W7 on Fragrance DirectHERE.
Hello lovelies, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
A couple of weeks ago I had a delivery from FragranceDirect They are all from the super W7 brand. One of the products I purchased is this little palette In The Mood.
Firstly I love the W7 packaging of all their palettes, really lovely tin palette similar to the Urban Decay palettes, apparently this is a “dupe” for their Naked Basics palette.
6 nude/natural eyeshadows are in this palette, from the very pale cream through to the gorgeous black. The shades do have names on the underside of the palette, from left is Shrimp, Oops, Venice, Wink, Kate and finally Cargo. The lighter shades don’t have a lot of pigment and are a bit chalky, I had to really apply a couple of layers of the first three shades to get a good coverage. But the last three shades are great, nicely pigmented and not so chalky. They blended nicely and are buildable to the intensity you want. There is just one satin finish shade while the rest is matte (that I can see) it’s the first shade Shrimp that appears to have a sheen to it. I would advise that a primer would be handy underneath these eyeshadows, the longevity of wear isn’t brilliant. Although the black lasted well when I it used as a liner on my top lid and smudged it out for a smokey look, also just be aware that there is some fallout with the lighter shades too, but that’s only because you have to use a lot of product to get any colour payoff.
In essence this is a nice little palette if you are a natural makeup gal and you can find it for just £2.99 at Fragrance Direct HERE.
Well here we are the last day of the month, it’s Halloween and it’s also the last day of A Month in Nail Polish too. I’ve picked one from Bourjois again.
This another 10 day wear, no chips nail polish in the shade number 25, once again it doesn’t have a name for such a pretty nail polish. It’s a gorgeous creamy textured coral colour. It applies opaque in one coat, and unfortunately I flooded the cuticle with this one. They take no time at all to dry and has a super shine when it has dried. I purchased this nail polish from Fragrance DirectHERE.
Well, that’s the month in nail polish all done, I hope you enjoyed it. I’m off now to give my nails a little TLC they really need it after using so much nail polish remover this month.
Today’s gorgeous nail polish is another No Chips 10 day wear from Bourjois and it’s a very bright red although it has no name just a number 11.
This is just an amazing red nail polish it is definitely fire engine red! I love the formula of this one too, it is opaque in just one, yes ONE coat! It’s got an angled brush for easy application, and the brush flares out to cover the nail whilst applying too. I purchased this nail polish for 99p from Fragrance DirectHERE.
Do you love red nail polish? Whats your favourite?
Today’s nail polish is another one from Bourjois the 10 Day Anti Chip range that I purchased from Fragrance Direct.
Firstly, I’m sorry for the really bad photograph, Mark usually does my photography as you know, but he’s feeling a bit poorly at the moment and I thought I would try a “nailfie” so he can rest up a bit. As soon as he’s feeling better, proper photos will be resumed! Anyway this nail polish again doesn’t have a name just a shade number 22, but I think that this colour is very similar to Chanel’s “Rouge Noir” a very dark black/brown with deep red undertones. I have only applied one coat of this shade and it’s opaque. It has the angled brush for ease of application and added pro-silicium for added strength. This super nail polish was a bargain at 99p from Fragrance DirectHERE.
Back tomorrow for day 3 of A Month in Nail Polish.
