I have a few new summer products from SEVENTEEN to share with you and firstly I know what yo are thinking, wow to the packaging! These are the summer compacts and I love the packaging which is a play on beauty quotes.
Starting with my favourite compact which is the Define & Contour palette, when you look at it open like this it looks like a high-end brand and very similar to the NARS duos which I love! I was worried that this contour might be a little light for my skin tone as I like to go in quite dark for added definition but it adds a lovely every day warmth to my face. I have been using it every day and it slowly seems to be replacing my much-loved Sleek contour kit. The highlight shade is matte and is great brightening shade which I have been using a lot on the bridge of my nose and to define my cheekbones. Both of these shades are well pigmented and blend well, for £5.99 this is definitely a must-have!
I really wanted to love this Let’s Face It Palette but sadly it is just not right for my skin tone. It is a handy little palette for fairer skin though. All the concealers and corrector shades are lovely and creamy, not the most long-lasting but this palette is compact enough to carry around for touch ups.
Speaking of concealer, the WOW concealer is very similar to one of my old favourites the YSL Touche Eclat. The packaging is also very similar and so is the consistency. Again though the shade offering is very limited for my skin tone, the medium shade has a very grey undertone. Here’s hoping that their shade offering will be extending some time soon!
Moving on to nails, I love these new gel colours which are perfect festival shades! No gel colours ever last on me as I am constantly washing up or washing brushes but these did last on my nails for five days which is pretty good. I think that if you are very gentle with your nails or on holiday you could actually probably get 7-8 days wear. For £3.99 I would be happy to sit by the pool and change my nail colour around every couple of days anyway.
