W7 Christmas Sparkles

Christmas for me is definitely the time of year when my inner magpie truly reaches the surface, anything shimmery and sparkly catches my eye - especially more so around this season. I'll admit it, i'm a high-end/mac eyeshadow lover, I rarely venture into the drugstore world of eye-shadows. So after receiving this little package from W7, I was intrigued to try - do the shadows match up? Will the nail polish chip? What is shimmer lips?
There was something that I really appreciated about W7 - is that they asked for an honest review, which is lovely as they obviously care what us bloggers actually think of their products.

I have not photographed the shimmer lips, as this to me was a bit of a 'meh' product. It felt okay on the lips, nothing special but looked just if i'd put a bit of, well, shimmer on my lips and it just didn't look right. I completely understand the concept - shimmer for the crimbo season, but the lipstick just wasn't for me; into my sister's make-up stash it goes.

Although, do not fear as I was majorly impressed with this baby right here; an xmas jam packed glitter top coat polish, I usually tend to get my nails done - so I figured I would test it out with two thin coats on my thumb. It is literally still on my nail, this stuff is amazing. Not one single chip and the sparkles are still sparkling like fairy lights. Beautiful - and the price? Even more beautiful.

As for the toasted eyeshadow quad (swatches above, the swatch on the right is the shimmer lips) they are a beautiful formula - especially the 3 bolder colours on the left. The champagne shadow's pigment isn't too amazing, but if you foiled it i'm sure it would look beautiful. The second swatch from the left reminds me of 'Smog' from the original Urban Decay Naked Palette. I think this is the perfect newcomer palette if you're on a budget!

Have you tried anything from w7? What did you think?

Have a lovely day and may you always wake up happy, till next time...
