Drugstore Favourites - Seventeen

Seventeen is like Natural Collection's cooler sister, both are Boots brands and both have a completely different range of style and product. Again, this is a brand I've used since my teens but in recent years they've really upped what they have available. Seventeen isn't as cheap as Natural Collection but they're still a lot cheaper than some brands on the market and you can pick yourself up so treats for under a fiver. Here are five products I love... 

Easy on the Eye in The Big Smoke £7.99 - 
The Big Smoke comprises of eight matte, shimmer and pearl powders, three metallic creams and an eye primer all in one handy palette. I'm so use to seeing easy neutral palettes so The Big Smoke is a great change if nudes aren't your thing. All the shades are soft and blendable enabling you to create easy, smokey eye looks. There is a fair bit of fall out but nothing a quick tap of the brush won't fix. It's a great dupe for Urban Decay Smoky. 

Define & Conquer Contour Kit £5.99 - 
Contouring is still as huge as it was in 2015 and many cheaper brands have released great alternatives that don't break the bank. The Define & Conquer kit has one highlighting shade and one contouring shade, both of which are matte. It's a great beginners kit as it also comes with a how to kind so if you're pretty clueless like me, this will definitely be your friend. The powders are creamy and blend well, although there is some slight fall out. 

Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze £4.99 - 
The Seventeen Shimmer Bricks are the Bobbi Brown's of the highstreet and just as fab, if not better in my opinion. I have both of these but Gold Bronze is the one I use the most. You just sweep the brush across all four shades to create a beautiful sunkissed glow to skin. If champagne bronzer is more your thing then you'll love Pink Bronze. 

If you've followed me for a while you'll know how much I love this foundation. I have told numerous people to buy it, with each of them reporting back how much they also love it. Put your full coverage foundations away because this is the only one you'll need. I've linked my review in the title so go have a read and let me know if you buy it too! 

Skin Wow Primer £5.99 - 
This isn't usually a product I would like but it's such a fab tool to have in your kit. The Skin Wow primer is a multi-use product that works as a primer, added glow for your foundation or as a liquid highlighter to give your skin a luminous glow. With a handy pump to control how much you use, you can create the most beautiful dewy finish.
