Seventeen Primer Foundation & Concealer || Review

DSCF2479 

I'm sure you're all aware of how good Seventeen are doing at the minute in regards to brilliant, budget, beauty products but I decided to share the love anyway. I took advantage of the 3 for £10 on Seventeen products a while back and saved myself a whole £8.47 wahoo (Boots have a 3 for 2 on cosmetics so check them out for a bargain)! I decided to by the Flawless, Poreless Primer, On the Spot Foundation & the Phwoarr Paint Concealer. I'm pretty darn impressed if i'm honest, two of them have definitely made their way in to my daily makeup routine.

I picked this up after reading a few reviews and as my skin was particularly bad that day I thought i'd give it a go. I got the lightest shade 'soft ivory' which is a good match for a drugstore foundation and my skin. I really like the packaging, when you take the lid off there's a pump underneath (thankfully). This says that it helps to clear skin, although it hasn't done that for me, it is a nice foundation. I'd say the coverage is about medium to high when applied with a buffing brush. I've tried applying this with my fingers and a stippling brush and both give less coverage but still enough. This lasting power of this is also pretty good for £6.99, perfect for a day at school or a morning at work. It doesn't cling to dry patches either so i'm really happy with this considering the cheap price.

This is definitely my favourite product out of the three, it's amazing. I'm sure you've all read lots of reviews of this already but I really believes it deserves all the hype it's getting. The name indicates how heavy duty this concealer is going to be and it's right. When you first use this it's quite hard and can be a bit tricky to work with but that soon goes away. I apply this under my eyes and to blemishes with my finger and then blend with a brush. The coverage is full but not cakey. It also doesn't crease which I really thought it would if i'm honest. Weirdly, I find that it brightens all the right areas like under the eyes but doesn't bring attention to blemishes so it's a really perfect concealer. I would definitely recommend this for £5.49!

Finally, the primer. You might be wondering why I bought a new primer if you've read my rave review of the MUA Fashionista primer but i'm a blogger, what can I say. This however, i;m slightly disappointed with. I've never tried a solid primer before so I was intrigued but I just find this hard to work with. You can't really tell how much/little of your face is covered as it's a clear, hard consistency which disappears as soon as it touches the skin. I will give this another go as I really want to like it. I think it would be perfect to use on the cheeks to help pores as that's what it says it does. Let me know if you've tried this and what you thought.

What is your favourite Seventeen product?
