Seventeen

I recently reviewed the All out Pout lip palette from Seventeen and loved it.  You can read the full review here.  Today I’m talking about two more palettes: Easy on the Eye and Define and Conquer contour palette.

Starting off with eyes.  The palette contains a collection of 8 matte, shimmer and pearl shadows as well as 3 metallic creams and one eye primer. For the most part they are dark tones consisting of a navy, two purples, browns, greys, a shimmery olive and a lighter shade – beige. The metallic creams are silver, peachy and bronze.

Each shadow is incredibly pigmented and long lasting.  They are great for smokey looks but can also be used for a more subtle look if one doesn’t want to have overly dramatic eyes.  I think these shadows are perfect for the autum/winter season and are really beautiful.  The palette is a bargain at €10.99 and also contains a double ended brush and mirror.

Oh how I love love love the contour palette.  It is utterly fantastic.  I have the palette for fair skin.  The bronzer isn’t too sparkly or too dark which can be a real problem sometimes.  It doesn’t look too harsh or overly obvious on my pale skin and does its job perfectly of contouring my cheekbones, jawline and down the sides of my nose.  Another problem for those of us with pale skin is finding a highlighter as they usually aren’t light enough to be visible on an already pale face.  This is not a problem with this palette.  It perfectly highlights the areas of the face.  Both powders are great for blending flawlessly so a lot isn’t needed.  I have been using the palette for months and it doesn’t even look used.

Each palette comes with a little book of tips and money off a Seventeen mascara.  I’d like to point out at this time that one doesn’t need to be a teenager for these palettes.  I was a bit concerned that maybe I might be too old for the make-up as my skin sadly no longer has the texture or look of that of a teenager.  I had no need to worry as all of the Seventeen make-up I have tried sits perfectly on my skin, eyes and lips.

I will definitely purchase these items again and will try the eye palette in other shades.
