Ever find yourself wandering around Boots wondering what to pick up? Whether it be new to the shelves or a best seller, beauty bloggers always want more makeup in their collection. Today I'll be talking about a few products from Seventeen, a brand who I hadn't previously delved into much.
The product that I instantly focused my attention on was the Seventeen Skin Wow! Concealer (£4.99)*. With the packaging that appears very much like the YSL Touche Eclat that I own in the Rose Gold edition, I was intrigued to see whether it would meet my expectations. The colour 'Fair' was a perfect match to me as I already use their Phwoarr Paint for blemishes in the lightest shade. The built in brush applicator saves you time when you're in a rush and to bring out the product you simply click the button to release the concealer.
Aimed a reducing dark circles and brightening underneath your eyes, it does the trick. Seventeen advise blending with your fingers but since I apply this on top of foundation, I use my beauty blender. To set the concealer I apply a pressed powder and I'm ready to go. The only flaw I can find with this product is that it only comes in Fair and Medium; not offering a great shade range. If they came out with an even lighter product, potentially a liquid highlighter, bloggers would be all over it.
The next product is the Seventeen Define and Contour Kit (£5.99)* which also comes in Fair and Medium. I had seen this mini contour kit on the shelves in Boots but had resisted picking it up previously. It consists of a light matte powder and a light brown contour powder which are beautiful shades for a pale blonde like myself. Seventeen advise that you contour as usual, which for me is simply the hollows of my cheeks, around my temples and lightly at the top of my forehead. To use the highlighter, simply place on the areas where the light naturally hits your face like the nose, cheekbones and cupids bow. The bronzer in this palette is incredibly blendable, works well with my skin tone and adds a natural sunkissed look. The powder for me could me lighter when using at as a higlighter, but is perfect for setting your under eye concealer.
Finally, the Seventeen Gel Colour Polish (£3.99)* in Emerald Tropics and Blue Lagoon claim to offer up to 8 days worth of wear that is chip resistant with long lasting colour and shine. I first need to start of by saying my nails chip after one day using any polish, whether it be £1 or £20. I used Emerald Tropics recently when doing some nail art and set it with a Shellac clear coat and it lasted for well over a week that way. I have brittle nails and polish that isn't cured simply will never last unfortunately. The colours are true to the photos on Boots.com and product and produce shine that is hard to beat. There are 29 colours on the website and they're definitely worth a look at, particularly Firefly!
