Seventeen Cosmetics are probably one of the most underrated affordable beauty brands around, and I have loved their products for several years now. Their products are so affordable, yet really good quality. I was recently sent a few products from Seventeen, which I hadn’t previously tried. These included the Instant Glow Shimmer Brick, the Instant Glow Bronzing Powder and the Skin WOW Tan Liquid.
The Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick is the product that I was most excited about trying out! Not only does it look gorgeous, but it’s also received amazing reviews from pretty much anyone who’s tried it.
The shimmer brick can be used in two ways. First, it can be used as a highlighter, by swirling a big, fluffy brush around the pan and applying it to the tops of your cheekbones to add some glow. Alternatively, the four individual shades can be used as eyeshadows. At first, I was slightly sceptical about this as I wasn’t sure how pigmented the shades would be. However, as you can probably tell from the photo above, the shades are incredibly pigmented and the shades look beautiful when swatched separately! The formula is so buttery and smooth – something you would expect from a more high-end brand. I was so impressed with this and would highly recommend trying it out.
This is available from Boots for £4.99.
Whatever time of year it is, my makeup doesn’t feels complete until I’ve dusted on some bronzer to add some warmth to my skin. I had never tried any of the bronzers from Seventeen, so I couldn’t wait to try out the Seventeen Instant Glow Bronzing Powder. The bronzing powder comes in a really sturdy packaging, which I love, and is available in two shades: light and medium. The shade I’ve got here is the medium shade, which would be better suited for using during the summer months, or for those with a darker skin tone. However, the light shade would be great if you’ve got very pale skin, or are looking to add a subtle bronze tone to your skin.
The formula of this bronzing powder is fantastic. It’s nicely pigmented and easy to blend, and best of all – it’s completely matte! This makes it a perfect bronzing powder to use when contouring.
This is available from Boots for £4.59.
The final product I was sent was the Seventeen Skin WOW Tan Liquid. I had never previously used a liquid tan product on my face as I always thought it wouldn’t suit my (rather pale) skin tone. However, this has completely changed my mind. Although the bronzing liquid looks quite dark in the bottle, it blends out really nicely when applied onto the skin and doesn’t look too dark.
This can be used in various different ways. My favourite way to use this is to apply a small amount of product all over my face before applying one of my more matte foundations, in order to give the skin a more dewy finish. Alternative, this can also be used as a highlight by dotting a small amount of the product on to the tops of the cheekbones.
This is available from Boots for £5.99.
I have been so impressed by the Seventeen products that I’ve tried so far!
