Seventeen Cosmetics Review!

Seventeen has been a brand that I’ve tried bits and bobs from over the years but ultimately I always think of it as a younger girls’ brand. However, over the last few months I’ve seen more and more new launches that catch my eye and also read plenty of blog posts that are raving about their products! So when one of their PR girls got in touch to ask if I wanted some products to try, I was definitely keen to give it a go!

I chose the All Out Pout Lip Palette* and the Skin Wow! Concealer*. They also popped in a little lip brush* for me to use alongside the lip palette which was super helpful as the one included in the palette is a little on the small side. The lip palette is a collection of 6 lip colours designed to be used either on their own or together to create an ombre effect on the lips. All the shades in my palette were red/orange tones (mine palette was in the shade Woo Me) but there are other colours available! The lip brush was the perfect mixture of flexible, yet also firm enough to create a nice sharp line around the edge of the lips. I really liked this brush and I will definitely plan to pick up some more in the future.

The Skin Wow! concealer was definitely the favourite product for me here as it is a fantastic dupe for the YSL Touche Eclat highlighting concealer pen yet comes in at a fraction of the cost! The applicator is a small brush that has a gap up the middle for the product to come through. It was so easy to apply the right amount and a couple of clicks was perfect for everywhere I wanted to conceal. The downside to this product is that there are only two colours to choose from as far as I’m aware. I used the shade fair which was the perfect light, highlighting shade that I like in my concealers! The packaging on this product is also very similar to that of the YSL concealer, with the luxury gold foiled tube looking equally as luxurious!

All in all I am definitely glad I took a step back into a more budget brand and the concealer and lip brush are going to be firm favourites of mine for a while now. The lip palette is gorgeous but I do feel this is more suitable for beginners to makeup as the pigmentation isn’t too strong and it has more of a glossy finish on the lips whereas I like to be quite out there with my lip choices. If you like a creamy, highlighting concealer though, then look no further as Seventeen have really hit the nail on the head with this one and I’ve been recommending it to all my friends!

Have you tried any of Seventeen’s makeup products recently? Which ones were your favourite? I have my eye on the contouring kit as the packaging looks nearly identical to the NARS ones!

Much Love

xoxo

  1. […] Seventeen Skin Wow Concealer – This is such a dupe for the Touche Eclat but hey, i’m not complaining at the lower price! Unlike the Touche Eclat, this is more concealing than highlighting yet it does still brighten your under eyes beautifully. It also lasted a lot longer than I expected and at around the Β£7 mark it’s a complete bargain! I’ve written a post all about it here. […]
