If you saw my W7 Haul (here) you’ll have seen that one of the items I bought was the new W7 The Honey Queen Honeycomb Blusher. I’ve tried a couple of the W7 boxed powders in the past and have been pleasantly surprised by their quality considering how affordable they are. The W7 The Honey Queen Honeycomb Blusher is £1.99 and contains a generous 8g of powder and a squared brush. The W7 boxed powders are very obviously inspired by Benefit’s Box O’Powders.. although it would appear that every single W7 product is a dupe of an higher end product.
The shimmery peach, bronze, gold and pink honeycomb design of the powder is so pretty and unique and I love the metallic honeycomb pattern of the box too. Compared to the other W7 boxed powders, this is definitely the nicer more luxurious looking powder. The brush included within the box is quite silky however it’s not the best shape for applying blusher so I prefer to use my Real Techniques Blush Brush.
The W7 The Honey Queen Honeycomb Blusher has a lovely, silky texture which applies beautifully and smoothly to the skin. When swirling my brush around the different coloured sections in the pan, it creates a shimmery amber shade on my skintone which gives such a gorgeous glow to the cheeks although on darker skintones I think it would be more of an highlighter blush.
When it comes to blush I usually much prefer a matte finish, but this blush has completely won me over and I actually prefer it to my Benefit Rockateur Blusher.. so much so that I’ve sold Rockateur in my blog sale. I think the W7 Honey Queen blusher is amazing considering it’s only £1.99 and it is the perfect summer blush, with a pretty glowy finish.
