W7 Makeup Brushes | Reviewed

Hey beaut's!

Over the last couple of months I've seen W7 featured quite heavily in the beauty world, they seem to be releasing some great makeup treats for us beauties including a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, some fantastic looking boxed blushers which are dupes for the ever so popular Benefit boxed powders and they are even branching out into the depths of skincare too, wowza! If that wasn't enough I've heard some amazing things about their makeup brushes so I couldn't wait to try a few out and see if they lived up to the hype that I had been hearing....
All of the W7 Professional Makeup Brushes have lovely, solid, wooden handles with black, metal ferrule's which I really like, they fit perfectly in my hands and are weighted enough for easy application. The bristles of all the W7 makeup brushes are synthetic and feel so amazingly soft, this pleasantly surprised me because I expected something totally different from a budget beauty brand. I have washed all the brushes that I've been road testing once and I haven't experienced any shedding as of yet which is any good sign and the handles easily wipe clean with a makeup wipe keeping them in tip top condition. 

W7 Professional Face Blender Brush* £5.99
I'm kicking things off with the Face Blender Brush, this brush is my absolute favourite out of the six brushes I've tried to far and I'd even go as far as saying it's one of my all time favourite brushes ever, say what!!!! But why do I love this makeup brush so much? Because it's the absolute queen of all brushes when it comes to contouring! The bristles of the brush are uniquely shaped into a narrow, angled style meaning it fits perfectly under the cheekbone's, down the sides on your nose and around the jawline and moves back and forth effortlessly blending either powder or cream contour beautifully. Whether your new to contouring or not you need this brush, it makes your life so much easier, so say hello to your inner Kim K he he.

W7 Professional Angled Blusher Brush* £4.49
The Angled Blusher Brush has been a little beauty at applying my blusher recently, it's just the perfect size for sweeping the blush on the apples of my cheeks and really blends my blush leaving me with a soft, even, natural looking finish which I love. You could also use the Angled Blush Brush for contouring and to apply bronzer.

W7 Professional Sculpturing Face Brush* £4.99
The Sculpting Face Brush is a great all rounder and definitely and brush all of us girls need in our life. It has a multitude of uses including applying and buffing in liquid, cream or powder foundation, applying a setting powder to finish a look off or you can use it my favourite way which is to use it to bronze, bronze, bronze!! I just find the size and the shape of the Sculpting Face Brush amazing at bronzing up the skin in all the right places and it blends out everything a dream, it's definitely my new favourite bronzing brush! 

W7 Professional Angled Foundation Brush* £2.99
I must admit I'm never a fan of these flat angled foundation brushes when it comes to foundation application but that's just my personal preference. I actually always save these type of brushes for when I go on a nigh out and I want to go mad with my cream contour and highlight, I just find that the slimness of the angled foundation brushes apply perfect stripes of the cream contour/highlight evenly before I buff everything in with a larger foundation brush. You could always use the Angled Foundation Brush for applying BB/CC Creams working from you nose outwards.

W7 Professional Sponge Make-Up Applicator* £4.49
Next we have the Sponge Make-Up Applicator, this is similar to a beauty blender but is attached to a brush handle he he. I do find this tool slightly bizarre because it's made for foundation application which I've tried and failed miserably with, it just doesn't work at all with foundation however.... It is very good at blending in concealer, I like to slightly dampen the sponge with a spray bottle filled with water and use the flat side and the point of the sponge to really pat in my concealer and then I use the bouncy, rounder side of the sponge to blend everything flawlessly just like I would with your average beauty blender. The 3 different angles of the sponge do work amazingly around the eye area, the point allows you to get right into the inner corners of the eyes, the flat side can get right under the lower lash liner and the round side can blend everything in around the entire eye area.

W7 Professional Precision Eyeliner Brush* £2.49
And lastly we have the Precision Eyeliner Brush, this brush is great at achieving perfect winged liner with a eyeliner cream/gel, the bristles are sturdy enough to create sharp lines but soft enough for easy application and flexibility. I've also used this brush as a lip brush and it works really well at defining around your lips especially the cupids bow which I love. 

Overall I've really enjoyed road testing and experimenting with these W7 brushes, I absolutely adore the Face Blender Brush for contouring it's definitely my favourite brush to use at the moment. It just proves that you don't have to spend silly amounts of money to find amazing makeup brushes, the W7 range is so affordable and I really like all the brushes Ive tried so far.

All of the W7 Professinal Makeup Brushes are availble on the Xtra's Online website!

Have you tried any of the W7 Makeup Brushes beaut's?? Which one is your favourite?? I'd love to know!!
