More dupes from W7 – Hollywood Bronze & Glow and Banana Dreams

More dupes from W7 – Hollywood Bronze & Glow and Banana Dreams

Did you see my review three weeks ago about a selection of budget lip products from W7? Well today I’m back with another W7 review, this time it’s a duo of face powders. I love W7 make-up, they have some great cheap dupes for more well-known premium products and I think it’s a shame that it’s not a more popular brand. I think it’s probably because W7 is not readily available on the high street and you sometimes have to search around on the internet for it, but there are always loads of W7 products available cheap on Amazon. Banana Dreams Loose Powder – this is a new loose powder with a yellow tint to it, it aims to correct surface redness and pink undertones, as well as neutralise blue under eye circles. I often get quite rosy pink cheeks so I’ve found that this powder works really well for me, although if you already have a yellow-toned or olive skin then you’d want to go for something with more...

KOREAN BEAUTY 3 Concept Eyes – Long Wear Eye Crayon

KOREAN BEAUTY 3 Concept Eyes – Long Wear Eye Crayon

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique.

Today I am reviewing Long Wear Eye Crayon* from 3 Concept Eyes. The Long Wear Eye Crayon is available in 7 different shades, each of them is shimmery and lustrous. I have been using the shade called Fallen, it’s a dark bronze brown shade with a great shimmer.

Living Nature – Summer Bronze Pressed Powder

Living Nature – Summer Bronze Pressed Powder

I was recently contacted by Living Nature to see if I was interested in trying out their Summer Bronze Pressed Powder*. I hadn’t heard of Living Nature before this, but being a brand that only uses natural ingredients I was really excited to try out this product as I am currently on a mission to replace all of my everyday skincare and make-up products with natural equivalents. Living Nature was launched in 1987 in New Zealand. Their products contain no synthetics, use only 100% natural ingredients, preservatives and fragrances and are never tested on animals. Their full range of cosmetics and skincare is Certified Natural by BDIH Germany, and their policy is ‘if there is any doubt about the safety of an ingredient, we don’t use it’.I love their philosophy! They also harness a lot of New Zealand’s native botanicals like Manuka Oil, Hallo Clay and Kelp and use these within their products. The Summer Bronze Pressed Powder is housed inside a nice black metal compact along with a small...
