W7 Ebony Haul and First Impressions: Makeup For Dark Skin + GIVEAWAY!

W7 Cosmetics have created a range of products called "Ebony" that cater for darker skinned ladies such as myself which I think is fantastic. I love seeing brands step up and provide products that include deeper complexions.

I had already bought two lipsticks from this range in the shades, "Bordeaux" and "Summer Nights" which I have reviewed here however, W7 were kind enough to send me a few more of their products to try out. (Thank you!)

These were the items I was sent:

Ebony Blotting Pressed Powder in 'Deep'

A very smooth powder with an orange undertone. It feels very light so I already know I will really like this.

Ebony Catwalk Perfection Cream to Powder Foundation in 'Mocha 5'

Some cream to powders can be drying once they've set but this product, so far, feels very nice on the skin. Although this is far too light for me, it'll be fun trying to find ways to use it.

Ebony Catwalk Concealer in 'Earth'

I'm not going to lie, my initial reaction to this was a raised eyebrow. The green-ish hue was a little off putting but the coverage is superb on this one. It blends in very nicely when you put your foundation on top.

Ebony Silky Smooth Lipsticks in 'Eternal Flame' and 'Summer Nights'.

Eternal Flame

Swatches: Eternal Flame

For swatches of Summer Nights, click here.

(As I mentioned before, I already have Summer Nights so I will be giving this one away!
See below for more details.)

I'm pretty impressed with the selection of products they've come out with so far because they've covered the main essentials for your makeup base and offered a good variety of flattering lip colours.

I'm going to use these products for the next week or so to get a feel of what they're like and then I'll report back to let you know what I think!
