NEW IN: Seventeen makeup


As a student I am always on the lookout for new affordable makeup brands that work just as well, perhaps better, than their high end equivalents. If you have been reading my blog you may have noticed that a couple of months ago Seventeen sent me some of their products to try and I loved them. I was lucky enough to have been sent some more of their products to try out again and as per usual they have not disappointed me! 


I was sent two bronzers, one powder and one cream. I have loved using my Benefit Hoola bronzer for the past 5 years now so am always on the lookout for something to take its place. I mean £23.50 for a bronzer is a little excessive, even in my books! So I was excited to see if these products could live up to my expectations. The Instant glow Bronzing powder in Light Bronze does just that. It looks gorgeous as a contour and bronzes the face also without looking too orange. The Instant glow Cream Bronzer is also lovely but I am still trying to get used to it! Hopefully I can do a full review on this product soon. 


Next, I am so excited to have been sent the Easy on the eye eyeshadow palette. I love everything about this palette from the gorgeous packaging to the pigmentation of the products. The palette is so different from any shades that I have tried before. Usually I am drawn to a nude/bronze palette as these are what I feel comfortable wearing. This means there is a gap when it comes to wanting to create a dark vampy look! With Halloween coming up, I know that I am going to get a lot of use out of this palette. I am already imagining some looks with it. I was also sent a single Eye eye eyeshadow in Gold to try out which I have already used in THIS post. As you can read there, I love this shade so much already and know it's going to be a staple in my makeup routine for most of the festive season come December!


I was also sent two highlighting products to try. The Skin Wow 2 way Highlighter and the WOW Concealer. Both of these products can be used in different ways on the skin to give a glow. I am particularly interested in the 3 way highlighter as I have never used a product like this before. You can use it to prime the skin, as a normal highlighter or just to brighten the skin without applying anything else. The Wow concealer is one of Seventeens best selling products and I have been using this for a while now. It looks lovely on the brow bone as well! 

L-R: Rioja Your World, The Coral Of The Story, No Corals and Violet Summer.
Finally I was sent a selection of lipsticks. Seventeen know me so well as I am 100% a matte lipstick girl. I have been seeing so many exciting reviews on the Mega Matte lipsticks so am excited to give them a try myself. My first impression of these are how pigmented they are. As soon as you apply them to the lips from the bullet

Have you tried any Seventeen products? Is there anything that I haven't tried that you think I will love? 
Let me know!
Love, 
*The products mentioned in this post were sent to be to try. All photographs and opinions are my own and as always 100% honest.
