My Experience with W7 24 Color Eyeshadow Palette:
Once I had my hands on Black eyeshadow and Maybelline Big Eyes, I learnt different ways of perking up my eye makeup. Maybelline eyeshadow was only 4 colors and instead of paying a lot, I wanted budget products and that is how I came across W7.It was decently priced and had 24 colors. They also had nude, neon and Smokey eye palette but I always prefer more options than targeting for a similar style.
The packaging is average. The cap is not sturdy and mine broke near the edge very fast and I have to tape around it every time to prevent it from opening. It contains 24 colors, 0.8g each and has a range of neutrals, pastels and dark Smokey colors. It comes with 2 applicators and is of good quality.
The colors are powder based and are shimmery. But they are soft and easy to blend. There is no much fall out which is great and it glides on easily on the eyelid. The pigmentation is more than satisfactory. The bronzes and darker colors are pretty perfect but the lighter colors look almost the same and sometimes if it goes wrong it looks ghastly! The downside of the palette is the nude colors, I guess only a professional can bring out its true colors and for someone like me who is a level up than a beginner it is very tough as all the colors look the same on my eyes and I feel if it was replaced with few more bright colors, it would have been perfect. The light shades looks similar on the palette and also on the eyes but they act as very good bases and I have been using them for this purpose.
The colors have good staying power. It stayed around 6-7 hours on my oily lids with a primer. The colors are beautiful but I like the darker ones much better. For now, I am yet to explore the nude colors but I love all the others. They are perfect for a Smokey eye or just to dab on for office wear. So summing up:
Pros of W7 24 Color Eyeshadow Palette:
• Good pigmentation.
• Long staying power.
• Variety of shades.
• Decently priced.
• Soft colors and easy to blend.
• Easily available.
• Perfect for Smokey eye.
Cons of W7 24 Color Eyeshadow Palette:
• The packaging is not good.
• The lighter colors look same on the palette and on the eyes.
• More colors could have been added.
