If you LOVE matte lipsticks then you will love Seventeen’s new Mega Matte lipstick range. Seventeen very kindly sent me a couple of their new lipsticks to try out and I was really excited to try them out and review them for you guys.
The two shades they sent me were ‘orange you gorgeous’ which is a bright, pigmented orange and is going to look really nice in the summer. The second lipstick is ‘violet summer’ which is a very vibrant purple. They are probably not colours that I would normally choose, as I tend to always go for the same shades of lipsticks and they are normally neutral, so it was a really nice change for me.
The formula of these lipsticks is really nice, it is non-drying which is something that I always look for in matte lipsticks. They are very pigmented colours so are definitely ideal for creating a statement make up look! They are £4.49 each which is really affordable and at the moment Boots have a buy one get the second half price on selected Seventeen cosmetics and these lipsticks are included.
The first thing I do is to exfoliate my lips to make sure there is no dry skin and to make a smooth base for the lipstick, after exfoliating I always moisturise using a lip balm and let that dry before I apply my lipstick.
The next thing I do is to apply one coat of lipstick and then use a bit of tissue to blot any excess then let that dry and apply one more layer to achieve a bold long lasting look.
I was also lucky enough to receive the ‘easy on the eye’ eyeshadow palette. I have become obsessed with eyeshadows recently so I was excited to try this palette. There are 11 eyeshadows and 1 primer. Out of the 11 eyeshadows there are 3 creams and a variety of matte, shimmer and pearl powders. The colours that are included in this palette cream a perfect smokey eye which is ideal for this time of year.
Another aspect of this palette is the step by step guide that is comes with. I found this so helpful and it is great if you are just starting out with eyeshadows. This palette is only £7.99 from Boots and is also included in the buy one get the second half price so you definitely can’t go wrong with these products.
