W7 Full Colour Lipstick | Sandpiper


A wonderful budget eyeshadow palette is the W7 In the Night eyeshadow palette, which has one of my favorite eyeshadow shades ever. Apparently, I am not the only one who loves this palette, because it has been my most popular post for a long time now! With such good results for the W7 palette, I also had high hopes for the brand's lipsticks! 

I received the W7 Full Colour Lipstick in "Sandpiper", which is a deep and shiny pink shade. The lipstick comes in a somewhat simple-looking (read: cheap) holder, showing off the pink shade from the get-go, which is all good as long as the product itself works well. It has a see-through top and silver writing, and the holder is a bit thinner and longer than regular lipsticks, but not as long as a regular lipgloss would be. Besides "Sandpiper", the Full Colour Lipstick collection contains five other pink-toned lipsticks. In my opinion, I selected the nicest one! 


You can imagine I was pleasantly surprised when I swatched "Sandpiper": with just one layer you get a deep and beautiful shade, intense pigmentation and no transparency. I like it! If you continue to layer the product, the swatch becomes deeper and gives off more shine. The shape of the lipstick allow for smooth application (note: not necessarily neat) and the product lies nicely on the lips. It has a fruity scent to it, which I can also appreciate. 


The finish is somewhat matte, but still has quite some shine and gloss to it. Just the right combination so your lips will not dry too much. You can also expect the product to stay on your lips for a good couple of hours (no, they will not survive dinner) and to stain once the glossiness goes away. As mentioned above, the application was easy but the I prefer a different shape that allows for neater application. Or, you know, I could also use a brush! So that really depends on personal preferences. You can buy this simple, but intensely pigmented budget lipstick for €4 or £4.95 online (perhaps for an even better price with the holiday discounts going on?!), which is money well spent in this case. What do you think of "Sandpiper"? Were you expecting such nice quality from budget beauty brand W7? Both the palette and this lipstick just prove to me that you don't always need to spend a lot of money on makeup to be satisfied (but that does not stop me, anyways.....).

  3. That is a great pigmentation, and a great price too. Don't think it would be my color though, but it suits you really well.

    1. Hm, voor zover ik het weet zijn ze helaas niet in winkels te vinden (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), maar wel via veel webshops: bol.com, makeupmusthaves, boozyshop, etc. Dus misschien gewoon eens een kans wagen? Gelukkig zijn ze helemaal niet duur :-) en over het "In the Night" palette ben ik ook erg tevreden!

  8. Amai! Hot hot hot ^^ Mooi voor zo'n fijn prijsje! Snel even doorklikken naar het pallet. Want hoezeer ik nu wel genoeg lipsticks heb voor de rest van het jaar, een nieuw palletje kan er wel nog bij ^^
