W7 The Honey Queen HoneyComb Blusher

To me, W7 boxed blushes have long been cheap, decent copies of Benefit's boxed range.  I first saw 'The Honey Queen' on Miss Makeup Magpie's lovely blog and couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
The budget 'Rockateur'?

W7 The Honey Queen HoneyComb Blusher

More generous than Benefit, W7 give you 8g of product as opposed to Benefit's measly 5g, however the shade is not pigmented at all. You do have to layer up quite a bit to achieve any kind of glow. Rockateur is definately more rose gold toned as opposed to W7, which is more orangey. W7 also has quite a bit of shimmer which seems to sit in the skin and tend to look a little cakey if over applied.


On this occasion, I believe you get what you pay for.  The very thought of a cheaper version appeals to me, however it is not pigmented enough and if you layer up to achieve the colour you want, it can cake up.  The packaging is very cute, the honeycomb design in the box is lovely, the colour is pretty, but the pigmentation is just not there.   On this occasion Honey Queen falls short, so I wouldn't recommend this one.
