W7 Africa bronzing powder

I’m not going to lie, I am easily swayed by packaging. I love pretty boxes and outlandish designs. The W7 Africa bronzing powder* not only fulfils my packaging dreams, but also makes me think affectionately of the Toto song every time I use it (if you are too young to know who Toto are, go google them, your life will then be complete).

Africa bronzer brush

Africa contains a mixture of pinks and brown powders, making it more of a cross between a bronzer and a blusher. Cute packaging aside, the product comes in a sturdy box, complete with it’s own (reasonable quality) brush, which when lifted off reveals the leopard print design product below.

How cute is that pattern?!

The bronzer is a lovely light powder that goes on easily, and lasts about 6 hours on the skin. The colour is quite subtle, which is a surprise given the depth of colour in the box. It does have a subtle shimmer in it, so if you're after something matte, then this isn't for you

This is perfect for a fresh faced glow and I know it will be making a regular appearance in my makeup routine this summer.

The best thing of all is the price. W7 make a range of bargain makeup and this is no different. Africa retails for £3.99, but at the moment can be found on the Xtras website for just £3.40.

What do you think of this bronzer?

  1. The colour looks lovely on your pale skin :) x

  2. I love this! I'm so easily swayed by packaging as well and I love the leopard print! Gorgeous.

    PS I have a new ootd post if you want a peak!

  3. I am so surprised by this! I've stayed well clear of this as it looked so scary and garish thanks to the packaging, and colours in the pan. It looks so gorgeous on you (your eyes look stunning btw!) I am going to have to give it a try xx
