First Impressions-New Makeup Products (Seventeen)


Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely weekend! As you can tell by the title for this weeks post I’m going to be sharing with you my first impressions of some beauty products that I’ve very kindly been sent recently by the brand Seventeen. This is not a sponsored post but as I am working with Seventeen as part of their blogger network I have been sent a few products to try recently. As some of you were asking for a full review of some of the products I thought I would combine it all in a first impressions post of what I thought of them! I hope you enjoy lovelies…

Makeup Products That I Got Sent To Try:

  1. Seventeen Easy On The Eyes Palette in the shade ‘The Big Smoke’ £7.99
  2. Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks in the shades ‘Violet Summer’ and ‘Lave You A Lot’ £4.49
  3. Seventeen Skin Wow concealer in the shade ‘fair’ £4.99
  4. Seventeen Instant Glow Bronzing Powder £4.59
  1. Seventeen Easy On The Eye Palette ‘The Big Smoke’…


When I first received this palette I was so excited to try and experiment with the gorgeous shades especially as Autumn is now approaching! I already own their ‘birthday suit’ palette which I am OBSESSED with so I already had an idea of what the palette was going to be like. A few days ago I did a blog post on how to create daytime and evening eyeshadow looks using these palettes which you can see HERE if you are interested in having a browse at that also. I must admit ‘birthday suit’ is more me with the rose golds and coppers but there are still plenty of shades in this palette that I would wear even if they wouldn’t be my initial choices. One of the big factors of these palettes for me is the price as they are lovely and affordable for such high quality palettes so everyone can enjoy them without bursting the bank! The palettes come with 12 shades which range from mattes, shimmers and 4 metallic creams which means you have a wide range of finishes to work with all in one palette!

The palettes also include a voucher for one of their mascaras and a get the look guide which is such a good idea and who doesn’t love a bargain!? The palette also includes a full length mirror and a dual applicator brush. Although I did find that a few of the brush hairs did fall out at first the brush does the job and is perfect for blending. Usually in palettes you get a sponge like brush which arent the best which I don’t use but I have been using this one and am loving it!

2. Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks in the shades ‘Violet Summer’ and ‘Lave You A Lot’ …

The next products are these matte lippies which I have already done review on that you can see HERE but I thought I’d mention them and tell you what my first impressions were of them! To start off I love how sleek the packaging was with a bold design that would easily fit in your makeup bag without taking up much room! I’m all about the matte so for me when I have a product that doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry but still gives a matte finish it’s fab! The shades are nice and pigmented and I am definitely considering picking up some more shades of these!


3. Seventeen Skin Wow concealer in the shade ‘fair’…

I’m always a bit unsure of trying new concealers as I find it very hard to find one that matches my pale skin tone. For a while I have been using my holy grail Collection Lasting Perfection in ‘fair.’ I have also been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in ‘ivory’ which I didn’t think could be replaced. I was wrong, this has taken over. I was surprised at how well this concealer matches my skin tone. I’d say it was very close to the Collection one which was one of my first impressions! My second impression which stood out was the gorgeous gold packaging, I haven’t owned a concealer with packaging like it! The other thing I love about this concealer is the concept as instead of having a sponge applicator you press a button at the end which pumps the product out of a brush like applicator without any mess! As long as you don’t press the button by accident when putting the lid back on (which yes I have done) it’s amazing!



I have dry skin but this concealer doesn’t flake or leave dry patches which always happens to me which is a bonus also! The only thing I would say is that although this matches my skin, for other skin tones there isn’t a great variety of shades that I know of.

4. Seventeen Instant Glow Bronzing Powder…

Finally the last product is this instant glow bronzer. I’ve never really got into the whole bronzing/contouring craze but have always wanted to try it! Receiving this products gave me the urge and I’m so glad it did because I’m definitely hooked. I love the fact that it gives just a subtle bronzed glow which is nice and natural. I also like the fact that it is a matte powder and doesn’t contain any glitter which can irritate my skin. As I have pale skin, anything to make me look a bit more tanned without going to Ibiza is a winner! Overall I would recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a natural bronze for any skin tone!


That brings me to the end of my first impressions of these products! I’m sorry that it turned out to be quite a ramble and a long post but I hope it may have helped some of you! Thankyou so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this weeks post, if you have any further questions about anything in this post then just leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them! See you in my next post,

Amelia xx

    Cool post. Is this the same seventeen that does the magazine? I love that it comes with a brush instead of one of those usual sponge tip applicators.

    • September 18, 2016 / 5:18 pm

      Thankyouu! I’m not sure if they are the same brand that does the magazine but it is Boots Uk’s own makeup brand. Yes it’s much better in a brush form! Thanks for reading Hun xx

    I might have to pick up the concealer after this post it looks so creamy and as it’s a great match for pale skin tones! The lipsticks are great too I want to pick up some more as well as the liquid highlighter! Xxx 😘 ❤
