W7 Very Vegan Makeup Range - Review

So recently I ordered some of the new W7 Very Vegan range. I talked about this in my Beauty Chat video but if you hadn't heard, affordable brand W7 released a totally vegan (and Vegan Society approved) range of makeup.

I ordered an eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, mascara, blusher, highlighter and a lipstick; here is the video of me trying them for the first time / first impressions.

I also wanted to use them all a good few times so that I could give you my proper opinion on all the products.


Starting with:

Eye Eco Eyeshadow Palette - £14.95
If you ever wanted a vegan (and more affordable) dupe for the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay, this is a good option.

 (for full swatches, check out my video linked above!)

Overall I like this palette. The shimmers are pigmented and go on well, they last pretty well and the colours are nice. There's a bit of fall out, so be aware of that and maybe do your foundation first or put some translucent powder down to catch it. I should add that I have hooded eyes, so without a primer, even super expensive shadows will crease on me. I use the same primer I use with all shadows and these last as well as some of my more expensive ones. In the video I only primed one eye and the eye I didn't prime did crease.

If I had a criticism of the palette at all, it would be that there's only 3 matte shades, one flesh tone, one black and one that could be used as a crease colour; I'd have preferred a couple more matte crease shades, as I think only having one limits it a bit. But overall it's a good palette.

Eyeliner - £5.95
I don't like this eyeliner. Mainly because I am not a fan of stiff, nib style eyeliner applicators, which this has. I find it difficult to get a smooth line and really hard to draw a wing without blobbing it to hell. The actual formula is ok and lasts well so if you like this style of brush you may love it! But for me it's a no.

I also found that when going over it to make it fully opaque, it lifted some of the liner off!

Mascara - £7.95
I like the mascara. It is not my favourite mascara wand ever because I am messy and I like a nice thin plasticky type wand. But I do like this mascara. It holds a curl on me and doesn't flake. Also I cried a lot the other day and it didn't run down my face. So there's that. For the price, there's other mascaras I'd pick over this one.

Blush - £8.95
I LOVE this blush; it's my favourite thing out of all the items I bought. The colour I got is Sugar Sugar and it's the perfect peachy pink. I love it. It's a nice formula, it lasts well and doesn't look chalky. I also love the embossing - the heart detail. It's so cute. And it has a decent sized mirror. I would absolutely recommend this blush and will be buying the other colours!

Highlighter - £8.95
I like the highlighter. I got the paler of the two shades available and it's a touch darker than I'd like it to be. However, it's a lovely highlighter. You're not gonna be seen twinkling from space or anything but it is very nice and catches the light lovely. I have other highlighters I prefer and this is very yellow gold, but it is very pretty and I see myself reaching it for it often.

Lipstick - £6.95
I like the lipstick. Although I wasn't crazy about it at first, it actually lasted a really long time, I mean hours! Through drinking and eating which surprised me for it having such a slippy formula! I would buy more of these! 

So that's my thoughts on what I have tried so far. I didn't buy a concealer or foundation, as my skin is tricky to find good products for. However, at the price point W7 have set, I will probably try them at some point. I will probably also pick up some of the eyeshadow quads to try.

Oh and here's the look I came up with on the video! :)


Let me know your thoughts - do you think the range looks good? Have you tried anything? Would you?
