The Hidden Beauty Brand♥*

There's big competition out there for beauty brands, and I mean huge. There's hundreds upon thousands of them, some well-known whilst others are really too known. Makeup brands for example, majority of makeup lovers know the popular brands; Maybelline, Rimmel, Benefit and Urban Decay are just a few to name. Seventeen? It's a brand that's sold in Boots, but not many people know about it nor have tried it. I received a few pieces, and none of them disappointed me!


This brick reminds me of Bobbi Brown's shimmer bricks but for a fraction of the price. This shimmer brick, however, is incredible! Not only are these highlighters/bronzers absolutely stunning to wear on your skin, but it's a multi use product and can be used as an eyeshadow quad. Every single shade is highly pigmented, even the lightest colour. A little bit goes a long way where this product is concerned! This is fantastic for the little price that it costs and I highly suggest it to everyone. The highlight colours will work with any skin tone as well.

Unlike the previous highlighter, this is a liquid form. In the tube, it looks scary and intimidating, but honestly, it isn't. I use this on my cheekbones for a subtle glow, although, you can apparently use it to contour (which I haven't ever done) but I love how it looks as a cheekbone highlight. It leaves your skin looking luminous and radiant, as well as looking glowy and healthy. Normally, I apply it as a base highlight and apply a powder highlight on top to make it pop a little bit more.


I don't own many lip crayons (apart from the famous Revlon colourburst lip lacquer balm which is technically a lip crayon) so I was excited to see how this would turn out. I didn't know how the texture would feel on the lips, but when applied, it applies smoothly and just glides on your lips. Once applied, it feels hydrating and moisturising on the lips and non-greasy or thick. The colour I have is nude, but finishes off any makeup look perfectly as it's so natural!



Of course I kept my favourite until last! These lipsticks are insane! I never, ever see seventeen lipsticks raved about by bloggers but honestly cannot understand why. These have a creamy consistency meaning they're wearable on the lips. The lasting power of these lipsticks are impressive, and last a good few hours. Mine is in the shade Rule Breaker, which is a deep red/berry colour. When I wore it for the first time, I received so many complements on it. I hate nothing more than a pretty lipstick that dries out your lips but luckily this doesn't! Most definitely my Autumn and Winter 2015 lip product!

I know for sure I will most definitely be buying more from this brand. Their products are inexpensive yet great quality. I cannot wait to venture out and see what else they have available! Also, not to mention the packaging - not only is it cute but is sturdy!

Have you tried seventeen? Will you be trying their products out?

  12. I've never tried Seventeen before because I had never seen it been praised! I've had a look at their products but never baught anything because I'd never read about it so was quite sceptic! However I'm now convinced that I need to pick something up on my next Boots trip! (:

  46. The best product I've owned from Seventeen has to be their under-eye concealer 'phwooar paint'! Love the look of the rest of these products - especially the shimmer brick. I'll have to get swatching next time I'm in Boots :) x

  53. These all look fantastic! I have always known about Seventeen, but not often purchased products by them. I'm not quite sure why. Maybe I still see them as the 17 brand they used to be. The things I have bought have been absolutely fantastic! I definitely need to check out more of their products, as they look like they're killing it at the moment - I want all of these products! Xx
