W7 Matte Bronzer

Hi guys,
I am sure alot of you guys are huge fans of bronzers? I have always been quite unlucky with bronzers. I've never actually found something that suits my skin tone. I haven't touched a bronzer in years until a few weeks back when I was testing out the W7 matte bronzer*. I mentioned this in my Spring makeup post too which can see here if you like!
The first this I noticed besides the really cool leopard print packaging was the fact that this particular bronzer is matte. YES! One thing that I personally dislike is shimmery bronzer. It looks stunning on some people who I do envy haha but it's certainly not for me. This is completely matte which I love. It comes in a nice round compact and is easy to use. This is like a terracotta coloured bronzer and doesn't have alot of orange tones to it which means it does look alot more natural. It's slightly dark for me but I make it work by adding some powder on top. I have used it for contouring and it does work nicely because it's matte but it'll look even better in the summer as a proper bronzer. Am I making sense? 
Now this is crazy pigmented. The colour payoff is amazing. When I first tried it, I just swept my brush and applied it but then I did look like a bit of a mess because I didn't realize how pigmented this was. You have to be light handed with this and build the colour up that way. I can tell you, it'll last you long! The swatch above is literally one swipe! It's got a lovely soft texture and blends out easily as well.
Over all I would recommend it for you bronzer lovers because it's well pigmented, good quality and affordable. Lovely for the summer time and to warm up your face!

You can purchase this from Xtras for £1.99.

Have you tried this W7 bronzer?

  1. Wow the price is very reasonable! W7 seems like an interesting brand. :)

  2. That is an incredible price! I paid almost $50 for my bronzer (about £25) and I am not completely thrilled with it. I actually bought a different one on sale for $10 and love it. The one you bought looks really nice! I'm interested in checking out W7 now, I've never heard of them before. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This look really good, Ive never tried any W7 make-up products which is odd because I love budget brands!

  4. It really does look pigmented! I also hate shimmery bronzers.. matte ones are so much better for contouring! This one does look cute xx

  5. i like the color, how does it compare with the MUA Bronzed Perfection? I guess this would be a tad darker?! i really wanna try out w7 products :) xx

    1. I haven't tried the MUA one but have read posts on it and it does look lighter than this one. This is quite a dark one so if you are super pale it probably would be too dark. :) xx

  6. I got this earlier this year and I have been using it religiously! LOVE it! :D

  7. Looks great,I love matte bronzers!

  8. I've seen this in so many shops recently! Definitely need to pick it up! x

  9. Wow what a bargain. This looks like a gorgeous Bronzer, so lovely and warm tones xx
