ABH glow kit dupe! w7 strobe time palette

OMG I am so in love with this product and what an amazing dupe for the abh glow kit as you can see in the picture. This is the w7 strobe time palette. W7 is not the most well know makeup brand and I hardly ever see it about but we have got a b&m bargains here in the uk and it stocks w7 makeup. for past 6 months they haven't brought anything new in just had foundations and the eye shadow palettes but when  I went in last week they have got so much more products!
W7 are much like makeup revolution they do lots of dupes of products they have all there eye shadow palettes that are dupes for urban decay naked palettes they have got mega matte lip creams like nyx what are amazing!!! Then I saw this highlighting palette and i thought this looks like my glow kit that is £40 pound and this was priced for £3.99!! It did say its orginal price was £7.95 that's the price of the website but in b&m bargins it always has money off.
I do love my abh palette but as you can see the w7 one is a lot smaller so is easier to travel with I do love it but £40 is a lot for a palette and I know some people can not afford it but honesly you do not need it this is the most amazing highlighting pallete by the drugstore I have come acrost I have swatched them below so you can see for your self how pigmented they are they are such a creamy formular not chalky like some drug store highlighters they blend so well on the skin and last all day! I cant tell you how much I love this product I would even buy it if it was £40!

Thinking of getting sun beds???

This time last year I had never gone near a sun bed because of the pure fact of what they can do to your skin. I love being tanned I always have fake tan on but last September I went on holiday to spain my first time going abroad so obviously I was going to be going to the pool and beach in my bikini. I knew I wanted to look tanned but the thing with fake tan after about 5 days it can start to go patchy dis coloured and flaky I was going away for 8 days so I didn't want my tan on my last few days to look gross! So I decided I would get sunbeds because I wouldn't feel confident being pale (not that I think being pale is horrible I love the look of pure clean pale skin on people but not on myself I have dark hair and dark eyes so it washes me out to much).

The first time I went there I brought a tanning mist to protect my skin ( radical tanning spray)but to also moisturise it because it doesn't work as well if you have dried skin. I decided to go on the stand up tanning machines as I felt more comfortable doing that at the time I didn't like the idea at the start of having to lay down and pull a machine over me. So there I was standing and the lights all came on when I did standing ones I did it for at first 5 minutes I lifted my arms up after a few minutes so it could tan under my arms and the other sides. I did them for about 3 weeks only 5 minutes a week. one because its expensive and two because I didn't really like doing them because I didn't want to damage my skin. I did get a tan line after them first few weeks but I was still putting fake tan on over the top.(Btw putting fake tan on does not make it harder to get a tan because it has not uv protection in it).

After them few weeks I thought I would been more tanned so I asked the lady and she said she prefers the lay down ones so I tried them and they defiantly made me tanner quicker I always use them now and when I started doing lay down I did them for 8 minutes a week. I defiantly did get a tan but I wasn't dark dark it was more like a bronze colour It tanned my belly really well but the bottoms of my legs were still white as a sheet!! I was so annoyed I paid out over 100 pound and I wasn't to happy as I hate my legs and wanted them to be dark.

I only did them up to my holiday so just under 3 months I don't know if I had stayed on longer my legs would had tanned more but I was really shocked at how bad they was tbh all I can say was it gave me a bronzed look and tanned my belly well. I suppose I did make me a tad more confident but I still would had been slapping on the tan if I wasn't going away.

Im going on holiday again this year and June and I am going to get them again but I am going to try different tanning products and see what happens! I would never get them if I wasn't going away I always stick to fake tan as its better for the skin.
