REVIEW: w7 africa bronzing powder

with flash and without flash
W7 'Africa' Bronzing Powder with Brush Applicator // £2.95

- I bought this bronzer on a whim. I'd never heard of the brand before and never seen the product either, but it was such a bargain I thought even if it is rubbish I'm only losing out on like £3 so it's no bother. Now that the product has arrived I've done a bit of research as to where you can actually buy W7 makeup products and it only seems to be online at the moment - I bought mine off Amazon.co.uk
- I was initially really attracted to the packaging and design, I'm a sucker for pretty looking things and this is definitely that. If you couldn't already tell, the design of the bronzer is based on the spots on African big cats (ie: cheetahs, leopards etc). It is compiled of 3 different colours, almost like two tones of bronzing powder and a blush. It comes with a handy mini brush applicator which fits perfectly into the box, so that's one less thing you have to keep in your makeup bag! If you sweep the powder across your cheeks in a diagonal stroke towards your ears, you get like a highlight on the apples of your cheeks, followed by a pale pink blush and then a darker contour underneath in the hollows of your cheeks. It's like 3 in 1 and anything that can make my chubby cheeks look the slightest bit thin is great in my books!
- The only negative I have with this product is that I find it slightly too shimmery, but that might just be me as I have naturally oily skin anyway so anything too shimmery on my skin just accentuates it. 
- Overall, I would highly recommend trying this bronzer, for its prize especially I actually think it's perfect. 

For my very first product that I have reviewed, I shall give it a 5 out of 5 and now I'm off to watch Skyfall with my mumma.
