Hello lovelies, today I thought I would show you a little haul as I did some online shopping on Boots a few days ago.
Everything I purchased is by the brand Seventeen, I was on the Boots website and I believe they are discontinuing the range which is a shame but would justify why the prices of everything is so cheap! I purchased 6 items and my order came to just under £10 which was amazing!
Define and Conquer Contour Set
The first thing I saw was the Define and conquer contour set, as you can see in the set you get a contour and highlight for the price the size of the product was pretty good, I would say it’s about the size of my palm mine is in the shade fair. I thought it was good that it comes with a 4 step guide, this can be useful to someone is new to contouring.
I thought this was a really lovely contour shade perhaps a little warm but I think it worked pretty well, as the product blends in easily you can’t really go wrong with it. I don’t normally use a matte highlight so I used it on my eyelids as a base and it worked perfectly it evened out my skin tone and gave a nice base.
I also purchased a BB balm, I don’t like to use foundation because I don’t feel I need it and I feel it’s too heavy for my skin. This BB cream was a sort of trial to see whether I’d like wearing something all over my face. It was a very light coverage which is what I wanted and it also is SPF 25 which was one of the reasons I purchased it.
I want to start protecting my face even on the cloudy days as I know that sun damage is not always visible until you age, by protecting my skin now I hope it will help to prevent damage in the future. I like how the BB cream looked on my face, it wasn’t cakey or heavy and it was a lovely shade that matched my skin perfectly which I was worried that it would as I ordered these products online.
The next thing I saw was a blush, I was skeptical with this product as I don’t use blush at all. As we’re coming into summer I thought it would be nice to start using it, as I think it can just give your makeup look a rosy hint. I got this in the shade China Pink.
I tried it out and really loved how it looked, because I am prone to getting quite rosy cheeks naturally I never bothered before. The colour was subtle and definitely didn’t look too much which is what I was worried about. This blush was easy to blend into my skin and if it looked too strong i just buffed it out and it became more soft and muted.
VaVa Voom Mascara
I like to try different mascaras from time to time, I saw this one Va Va Voom and thought it looked good. I like to use mascaras with brush bristles rather than plastic bristles I you understand what I mean. I feel I can get a better look with brush bristles aha. As you can see this mascara has just that, it is quite a big brush which some people aren’t too keen on but i don’t mind it. You just have to be more careful to not get it on your eyelid.
I got the best results with this mascara when I curl my lashes, I think it a really nice product it gives my lashes a nice lift and has a good colour. I got this mascara in the shade blackest black.
Laquer Liner Liquid Eyeliner
I also picked up a liquid eyeliner as I had run out of mine. I thought the shade was really good it was very opaque and a very dark black. The product stays on pretty well and it was easy to use. The brush tip was thin so getting the flick was not too hard which is what I struggled with perviously with a liquid liner.
Previously I’ve used a felt eyeliner, but since buying this it may have converted me as it was really easy to use and the colour pay off was great. The only thing I would say that not so good is the actual product is very small so I don’t know how long it will last, but I would be great for travel as it won’t take up lots of space.
Holo Nail Polish
The last product I purchased was a silver holographic nail polish. I really like wear metallic colours on my nails and as this was on offer I thought I’d give it a go. The shade is quite opaque and I only used one coat which looked pretty good. I don’t know if it’s fully holographic but it does change colour slightly in the light. Overall I liked the shade and you only need one coat, what more could you want?
I would recommend all of these products I’m really glad I purchased them whilst I could, there are still products available on boots but once they run out its gone 😦
Let me know if you have tried any of these products or if you are going to before they are gone!
Thanks for reading 🙂
