Hello there, on this absolutely beautiful day!

I thought I'd do a mini review of a couple of products I bought recently from Boots' SEVENTEEN range.  This is basically the younger, trendier (cheaper) sister of No 7 and probably more aimed at consumers in their late teens/early 20s that those in their mid-30s. However, there are a few good products that appear to be vegan and the ones I'm mentioning below, have been confirmed as such by Boots.

Starting with the Tattoo Me Semi Permanent Liner

Not sure about the semi permanent thing but this stuff really does stay on! The consistency reminds me very much of the MAC Liquid Last liners, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is very thick.  I struggled with the brush it came with to get an even line.

So this morning, I used my trusty Louise Young fine liner brush to apply it. This was a bit easier although, as you can see I still didn't manage to get it that great looking (I confess I didn't spend much time on it though, because I was late as usual!).  This stuff dries quick so you don't have much wiggle room to perfect it.

Pros are that it's super black and opaque and it stays on all day. Con is the texture and the brush. If you are not very confident with liquid liner, I'd not recommend this until you feel a bit more comfy with it.

Next up, the Phwoarr Paint Heavy Duty Concealer

This promises to be a heavy duty concealer for covering up dem dark shadows. As you can see from my before pic, I have days when my bags need some serious help.

And this did a pretty good job, I was impressed with it.

However, as I mentined above, this I think is aimed at a younger demographic than me. Because of the fine lines I have under my eyes, creamy products really just crease like hell on me within a few minutes, even when powdered.  This does crease, but if I use it very sparingly it's not too bad.

Also I want to shout out my favourite SEVENTEEN product, that I featured in a recent friday favourite, the Skin Wow Highlighter, which I use almost every day, as it's gorgeous. More info on that here if you're interested.

Hope the sun is shining where you are too!
