Good morning friends,
Today we’ll be looking at the W7 Advent Calender.
I didn’t realise W7 sold advent calenders, but after purchasing, I discovered they have for the last 4/5 years.
There have been mixed reviews, but here’s my thoughts on it.
The 24 day advent calender was available by dozens of sites, prices ranging between £12-£25, depending on where you purchase it.
I bought mine from Amazon for £12, with an additional £3 P&P, (which works out at around 62p a day) bargain!
The make up is pretty basic in looks and quality, but overall decent.
The Beauty Blast contains:
1 x Mini Big Lash Mascara (Black)
3 x Mega Matte Lip Liner (Red, Pink and Nude
3 x King Kohl Eyeliner (Black, Brown and Blue)
4 x Mini Glam Gloss (Glam Bam!, Super Star, So Hollywood and Too Hot!)
5 x Mini Mega Matte (Smudge, Happy, Hasta La Vista, First Class and Star)
1 x Mini Glowcomotion Highlighter
1 x Mini Honolulu Bronzer
1 x Mini Cheeky Flusher
1 x Mini Banana Dreams
1 x Mini Beam Me Up Illuminator (Volcano)
3 x Loose Glitter Pigment Pots (Super Silver, Gilded Gold and Pretty Pink)
Here’s a closer look at a few of the products.
Firstly,how freaking adorable are these miniature lipglosses?
Perfect size for a small clutch bag, purse, to keep in your drawer in the office,or in the car, when you need a quick bit of glam.
The top 4 glossed are shimmery, whilst the bottom 5 leave a strong but soft shade that lasts for hours.
Perfect trio of Lip liners, for any preference.
Black and brown liners will always be present in my make up stash, but this beautiful navy may give me the confidence to branch out a little and create a blue smokey eye.
You don’t often get a mascara in a advent calender, which in all honestly was one of the selling points.
The wand is thick, and gave me long defined lashes with just one coat.
Is the glitter multi purpose? For make up or nails? Honestly, who cares? It’s Christmas, and we all need a bit of glitter in our lives, now than ever!
Honalulu bronzer – I’ve seen this as a dupe for the Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer. I didn’t believe it until I tried it, but it’s pretty spot on, and a fraction of the price!
Cheeky flusher – I think that might be a bit much for highlight or bronzer but what a stunning eye shadow.
Glowcomotion is a gorgeous all around soft gold for your cheeks or eyes.
This advent calender will kit you out for a full face of make up and multiple looks (keep an eye out for this at a later date)
I was also pleasently surprised that there were no fillers – not nail file, hair band, or outdated eyeshadow applicator in sight.
What did you think of the calender and would you buy it
