W7 have been very quiet recently, but today they launched the W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette. W7 usually launch new products quite frequently, but it’s been months since they launched anything new which is probably due to the global crisis.
W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette
The last time W7 launched anything new was when they launched their W7 It’s Glow Time Foundation back in the middle of March. Usually we’d see something new from W7 every few weeks.
The W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette is £9.50 via their website, but you may be able to get it a little cheaper by shopping around. I tend to buy my W7 products via JustMyLook, Fragrance Direct or eBay.
This new W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette features eighteen shades within holographic effect cardboard packaging. There’s a mirror inside the lid and it comes with a dual ended eyeshadow brush.
As soon as I saw the W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette, I knew instantly which palette W7 were trying to imitate, and that’s the relatively new Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde Palette.
The Huda version is £58, whereas this palette is £9.50 so it’s considerably more affordable. However, the W7 quality is never obviously on par with the higher end versions they try to imitate.
If you’re wanting the colour scheme of the Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde palette rather than the quality, the W7 Total Eclipse Pressed Pigment Palette could be a decent alternative.
Looking at these swatches, the new W7 palette appears to be a little sheer and very glittery. There are some really pretty shades and it looks promising for under £10.
I’m a big Huda Beauty palette fan, but I never purchased the Mercury Retrograde Palette as I knew I wouldn’t wear the shades enough to justify the £58 price tag.
However, something like this would be ideal as you’d still get the pretty colour story, but for a considerably more affordable price.
