Seventeen are fast becoming one of my favourite brands. Since they’ve re-branded, I’ve found myself circling their stand much more than I used to. Their packaging is much better and their product quality is really up there with some more expensive drugstore/highstreet brands.
Today I’ve got a beautiful little set as part of my Christmas gift guide, the Seventeen Eye Palette and Lip Crayon Cosmetic Bag, £12. The set contains a metallic makeup bag, a lip crayon and a six shade eyeshadow palette. I was sold by the makeup bag to be honest, it’s really pretty and surprisingly fits quite a few things in. It’d be great to travel with. The lip crayon is in shade is in pink, it gives a sheer wash of colour to your lips which you can pair with an intense smoky eye, or just wear on a minimal makeup day. Think Clinique Chubby Baby Lip Tints (with a little more colour).
The eyeshadow palette contains six limited edition eyeshadows and the shades range from a cream to a sultry dark purple. You can easily go from day to night with this palette! Three of the shades are matte and three contains glitter, it doesn’t make it hard to blend at all. You do get some fall out with the glitter, but you can easily wipe it away or place a tissue on your under eye area before you start doing your eye makeup. I think it’d be especially perfect for someone who has just started to dabble into makeup. It’d give them some great shades to play around with looks and also the lip crayon would be a lovely addition.
