W7 Bronze Queen Eye Palette

Not Sponsored/No Samples

Hi!

I fell in the door of Cara Pharmacy in Longford last week (literally) so I went off down to the W7 aisle until my face wasn't red anymore. I spotted this palette and took the gamble for €4 - I haven't seen it before, I've had a few of the other Naked-inspired W7 palettes and while they aren't my first choice, they're definitely acceptable.



This one is quite obviously inspired by Bobbi Brown, but the packaging on this is much better than the tins that house the Naked "dupes". When I swatched the shadows on my arm they came off quite powdery and not very pigmented. That fifth shade is more of a glittery topper, reminiscent of the ones in the Charlotte Tilbury palettes (nowhere near the same quality) but it's not going to give you big glittery eyeballs on its own.


Over an eyeshadow primer (Essence I Love Stage), the shadow isn't actually bad at all on the lids. I used the 2nd, 4th and 6th colours with a bit of the black on the outer corner and a bit of the sparkly shade all over.


It's not going to win any awards, but it'd be grand in an emergency or as a stocking filler for a teenager who wants to practice before moving on to more expensive brands. It's not as good as Essence or Catrice, but for €4 the sparkly shade is handy, it's nice to have something like that that doesn't have big chunks of glitter in it.

    1. Definitely, and a lot safer than that play kids makeup!

  2. Aaah I want this! I wear nudes every day to work, but don't want to waste my Naked palette on everyday use. Think this one could see me through :) x

  4. I though it might be better, but I guess the price shows the quality. Not all the time can depend by the price as I actually found pretty good palette for £2.50 from B&M and it's still my favourite :)

    1. That's great, I love a bargain! It's definitely not as good as some other budget brands, but I do like the glittery shade!

  5. OMG!!! This is so pretty. Love the packaging and love the shades. It has a great pigmentation too upon seeing on those swatches. So wearable and versatile. A must have indeed!

    1. The packaging is definitely a major improvement on their other nude palettes, it's much stronger!

  6. I've been tempted by this stand in my local pharmacy but you're right, probably better as a stocking filler for teens (or my obsessed four-year-old!) x

    1. I do think this is a much better option for younger children or teens to play with than some of the play makeup aimed at kids, at least it's all tested!
