W7 Brow Bar Review!

I’ve wanted to try W7 makeup for a while as I’ve heard their blushes are amazing dupes for Benefits Box blushes, although all I can usually find is their nail varnishes which I am a massive fan of.

 

W7’s Brow Bar contains 4 colours, 1 highlight and 4 colours ranging from a light brown to a black, and also contains 2 angled brushes, 1 brow Comb and 3 brow stencils.

 

Time trial; 2 weeks

Price paid ; £2.99

Claims: none on the box but you simply use the stencils and fill in with the powders.
