I’m not really sure why, but I was always a bit hesitant on picking up one of Boots’ own 17 brand makeup items. However, I was on the hunt for an eyeshadow I could use both day and night, which wouldn’t cost a lot and when I spotted 17 Solo Eyeshadow in ‘Mardi Gras’ at just £3.89 I thought I would give it a go!
‘Mardi Gras’ is a taupe colour, with a slight silver-ish shimmer. I’ve read on some other blogs that this may be a good dupe for MAC’s Satin Taupe, although I will have to try that myself to be able to compare.
I was really, really impressed with the quality of this eyeshadow, as at just £3.89, it is really pigmented and has an almost butter-y texture. I found the colour compliments my green eyes very well, and have worn this both during the day and at night-time. It looks lovely on its own, or blended to create a smokey eye effect.
I can’t wait to try more of Boots’ 17 Solo Eyeshadows – Particularly ‘Statuesque’ and ‘Walnut Pearl’, which I’ve had my eye on for a while!
What do you think of the 17 Solo Eyeshadow range?
