Seventeen is one of those brands I’ve been familiar with for a while, but never actually tried anything from.
Maybe because I’m more on the No7 age bracket, but never mind! It turns out I got quite the surprise…
As a proper introduction, I was delighted to give some of their best selling products a go.
Their Define & Conquer count our kit is super slim and fits well in any makeup bag. The highlighter is light and matte, which makes a huge change from all the powder highlighters I use, which have some shimmer in. It does work well to lift the highlighted points very subtly, which I really liked.
The contour powder is a light tan, not very warm, that works as well as a count our as it does as a subtle bronzer.
The kit also comes with an easy-to-follow, straight forward guide for application.
Both apply and blend well, as have a decent durability.
The Skin WOW! Concealer is clearly a dupe for the YSL Touché Eclat, and works in the same way, to highlight and conceal.
Used under the eyes, it brighten it up, and works in other parts of the face as a discreet highlighter.
The formula is less rich than the more expensive cousin, and that reflects a bit on the pigmentation and overall effect, but means it blends easier.
Now, what cannot go unnoticed are the prices: Seventeen delivers great value for money.
Maybe I am indeed on the Seventeen age bracket!
At the moment, you can get a second item half price on selected Seventeen products – and let’s not forget all those precious Boots cards points!
