You know when you buy a new beauty related item & you're so excited to use it, but being a blogger means you have to photograph it first? Yeaaaaah, I was obviously too lazy to do that straight away as I bought this palette back in January & totally forgot I owned it till recently! So I grabbed my camera & ran outside to catch a few rays of sunshine & decent light to snap these shots before using it.
I picked up this palette from TK Maxx, but if you guys don't have one in your local area, I also found it on Fragrance Direct or you could just simply search on Amazon.
I thought this palette would be perfect for Spring / Summer time. I also tend to stick to nude / light shades in the warmer months & go for darker shades in Autumn / Winter.

I've done a few looks using this palette so far & I absolutely love it! My two favourite shades to use together are Marilyn & Alice. They are both matte shades & give your eyes the perfect nude spring look. The darker shades in the palette are perfect for evening looks. I've been using Sun Kissed with Coffee Cup in the eye crease to give off a summer vibe. Angel I've found is a very shimmery glitter eye shadow & is best used on top of a light base colour. It really sets off your eyes by adding a subtle sparkly effect.
What I love about this palette is you can create so many different looks & the shadows are amazing quality & won't crease throughout the day. I do long shifts at work & usually go out either before or after, so I need reliable makeup on at all times! I'd say these shadows stay on without creasing for around 12 hours, which is brilliant!
This palette is definitely worth the price tag of £5.99 (& it's even cheaper online than what I bought it in store for!) I've been hunting in TK Maxx for other palettes by W7 & only ever seem to find ones that someone has stuck their fingers in! So annoying..
Have you tried any of the W7 range? I would love to hear your thoughts :)
