SEVENTEEN: Old and New Favourites!

SEVENTEEN Boots favourite products makeup

Hi everyone! I've got a few quick reviews and swatches today of some of my old and new favourites from Boots own brand SEVENTEEN! Keep reading to see what I love from the brand!

First up are some old favourites of mine that I absolutely love. The Phwoarr Paint heavy duty under eye concealer in Fair (£5.49) comes in two shades of which I have the lightest. It is a very thick and creamy concealer that covers dark circles really well! As with other cream concealers I have, I like to use this with my ring finger in order to warm it up and blend it under my eye. I really like setting this with a separate powder I will talk about later in this post but this ensures it doesn’t settle into any fine lines around the eyes and that it lasts throughout the day. I also sometimes use it to conceal spots too and it does a good job at this as well!

SEVENTEEN Brows that! brow kit phoarr paint fair swatches

I feel like this was the original drugstore/highstreet brow kit! It was the first brow kit I owned anyway and I got it in one of Boots’ trusty free gift offers a few Christmases ago! I was actually using it to do my make up for New Year’s Eve at my friend’s house and she pulled out the same kit – we can’t resist a Boots bargain! It only comes in one shade but I find the colours are very cool toned and a great match for me, the wax and powder are not overly pigmented so perfect for an everyday look if you just want to define your eyebrows a bit. They can be made a little more dramatic if you also use the pencil before filling in with the wax and powder and I love the fact it’s so easily buildable and the highlight shade has a lovely shimmer to it that’s not too obviously glittery!

SEVENTEEN lipstick swatches beehive audition bold

I first bought this a few years back (when it was in the blue packaging – anyone remember?). Vivianna Does Makeup raved about it so I picked it up to see what all the fuss was about and fell in love with it! It is the perfect my lips but better nude, sheer, natural looking, glossy, moisturising lipstick and it’s a long standing favourite of mine! I haven’t done a top five favourite lipsticks yet but this would be on it! I love the new packaging too, when you open the lid a mini mirror pops out which is handy for on the go! I could apply this shade in the dark but it’s maybe more useful for the other shades in the range which I definitely need to check out!

These are SEVENTEEN’s long wear lip colours and Audition is a gorgeous bright pink blue toned colour (which makes your teeth appear whiter)! I am completely in my comfort zone with pinks as well as corals as opposed to reds and this lipstick applies so smoothly and sits so comfortably on my lips it doesn’t dry them out at all! It’s not totally opaque and I find I still have a little bit of slip on my lips which is probably why I like the formula so much as its not drying. It lasts a really good amount of time on me and you can layer it on for a really bright pink colour which I would for a night out or apply it lightly for a gorgeous stain that lasts hours and really brightens up the face!

I love lip crayons like this for throwing in my bag when I want a bit of colour, moisture and don’t have time to look in a mirror to apply! It’s a gorgeous coral colour with loads of shine that’s so easy to top up throughout the day! Like I said, pink and coral colours are my go to, they suit me and I look healthier with a bit of colour on my lips! Saying that, I do want to give the berry shade a go next!

SEVENTEEN define and conquer contour kit in medium

I was so excited to receive this as I have eyed this up in Boots many a time and swatched the shades only to find they were all sold out! It seems to be one of SEVENTEEN’s most popular products and rightly so! I could not wait to get this out of the packaging! It comes in two shades, of which I have the darkest and originally I thought it was going to be too warm toned for me but thankfully I was wrong! This is buttery soft and blends like a dream leaving a realistic shadow on my cheekbone and no harsh lines! What I love most about this kit though is the fact the highlight shade is matte! I will get so much more use out of it and have been using it to set the my Phwoarr paint concealer under my eyes where it brightens really well! I love the sleek black packaging too!

SEVENTEEN falsifeye HD mascara wand

Finally, we have the Falsifye HD mascara! I love the plastic wand which has two different sides, one with shorter bristles and one with longer. This really coats my lashes evenly and I like to twist this as I apply which really separates and fan out my lashes! It doesn’t clump at all and the wand easily combs through my lashes. I always do two coats with any mascara I use and this gives me so much separation and length! Although I would usually choose the waterproof version of any mascara I’m using, I've been so impressed with the staying power of this one! I don’t often put mascara on my bottom lashes but the size of this mascara wand would make it perfect if you did!

So there we have my old and new favourites from SEVENTEEN! They are always on offer in Boots and there really is no reason not to have a swatching session when they have so much choice at brilliant quality and reasonable prices!  They also have a ton of new releases making their way into stores and I for one cannot wait have a look at the new makeup brushes and powder blushers!

SEVENTEEN have also recently launched their Blogger Network which is free to sign up to and includes loads of product information, news, makeup trends and tips!

What’s your favourite SEVENTEEN product or what would you most like to try?

The lip colors are beautiful as well, though I don't believe Seventeen is sold here in the states :( We really need to up our game on drugstore brands haha, I feel like I miss out on so many goodies!

  27. Unfortunately we don't have 17 products in Australia but I picked up the Phwoarr Paint concealer when I was in the UK last year and I was surprised by how good it is! I haven't used it in a bit though so I might crack it out tomorrow.
