The Amazing Seventeen Makeup

SEVENTEEN is one of the very first makeup brands that I tried growing up, it was from 17, as they were then that I bought my very first lipstick and lip gloss. Things have changed a lot since then and they have become a brand which has not only upped there game, but one that has some amazing products. Not only are they always on trend, they are also affordable and great quality to boot.


I recently received an amazing surprise parcel from the lovely people behind the brand, containing some of their best selling products, some of which I use and some of which I hadn't ever tried, so here is what I found within my box:


The Amazing Seventeen Makeup

Define & Conquer Contour Kit in Medium*. £5.99
Attempting to Contour isn't something I have found that easy, I have mastered strobing much better. That said, this handy little kit is not only quite sleek in design but it is also handbag friendly and hosts a decent sized mirror. The formula of this is so creamy and pigmented that it blends with ease without looking orange or dirty. The darker powder helps to define you face whilst the lighter powder helps with definition. It comes with a handy 'How Too' guide for those like me, who still need some practice.

Skin Wow Primer*. £5.99

This is a product I have wanted to try for a while now. I am slightly obsessed with highlighters right now and this one is definitely worthy of its name. You can either use it on its own under make-up to create a nice base or on top of your foundation on cheekbones to give a highlight effect or you can mix it with your foundation to create a dewy effect. For £5.99 this is a fantastic product, one I absolutely love and it is perfect for strobing.

I have raved about this shimmer brick here as a great Bobbi Brown Dupe, but it is an item I use constantly. The Shimmering powder brick contains four different shades which work incredibly well together. Starting with a lighter shade and ending with a dark shade, sweeping your Kabuki Brush across all 4 shades creates a fantastic light or dark bronzing affect, depending upon your preference.

Brows That! Brow Kit*. £5.99
If there is one part of my face that I don't do much with, it is my brows. Now before you frown at me there is a reason. Around 3 years ago, I went to a well known store with a friend for threading but it didn't quite go to plan and I ended up with almost no eyebrows at all! Now three years on and after not touching them, I almost have something to resemble eyebrows. This brow kit is quite something, it contains brow wax, brow powder, highlighting powder, brow sculpting pencil and a brow brush. Add to that a handy 'How to use' guide and a decent sized mirror, you have everything you need to do your brows on the go.

Falsifeye HD Mascara*. £6.99
One item I could never be without is mascara and it is the one thing I never leave the house without. This mascara is a brown black shade which isn't too dissimilar to my own eyelash shade. What I love about it is the wand, it has a lovely long handle but the brush itself is so easy to use between the lashes that it does give some volume, something I need more than length as I have long lashes.

Gel Colours in Hurricane & Irish Coffee*. £3.99 each
Gel polishes are it for me. I can no longer be doing with a polish that lasts for a few days on my nails before chipping. I have Hurricane which is the most stunning shade of blue that ive worn a few times now and it does last for just over a week without chipping. Irish Coffee is a stunning nude shade which is perfect for all occasions and both polishes glide onto the nail, the brush is a perfect size for coverage and I have only ever applied one coat. For just £3.99 they are amazing value for money.


There isn't a single product here that I do not like, it has been so good to find some new amazing products to add to my makeup bag. Have you tried anything from SEVENTEEN lately?

  5. I'm not great with brows, I over plucked them myself and they haven't really grown back (I've tried vaseline, castor oil) all the usual. Sounds like I give this one a go!! ;)

  6. 17 was one of the first makeup brands that I ever got into too, like you as a teenager. I don't use anything by the brand now. I do really like the look of the 3 Way Highligter. I'm also obsessed with adding a bit of 'cosmetic' lift to my cheekbones. Tx

  25. I remember when Seventeen was 17 too, my Mum used to buy stuff from the stand at Boots all of the time and I was fascinated ;)
    The products look fab, I need to try contouring and is it bad that I don't know what strobing is?

  27. I am not familiar with this brand but it looks lovely! And what a fun surprise to receive the package! The contour kit looks absolutely perfect! Those shades look so nice, and youre right - contouring is not easy! Especially when a lot of products can make you look either too orange or sometimes dirty. But again, those shades look perfect! Wow!
