First Impression- Seventeen Cosmetics Phwoarr Paint Under Eye Concealer 

Hey guys and girls! Today I am doing my first impression of the Seventeen Cosmetics Phwoarr Paint Under Eye Concealer! I will be scoring it again outta three just like the last first impression so here we go.

Colour – the colour I picked up my one in is Fair. At first I thought this concealer was going to be a tiny bit too dark for me but it was actually a perfect make for me. It is an under eye concealer but I found that it was actually a good colour for concealing spots as well. It doesn’t really brighten under my eyes but I do find it covers my under eye bags.

Blending – I found this concealer amazing for blending! I used my finger as well as a brush to blend and it was amazing with both. I always like the fact that when you use it it doesn’t look cakey under your eyes or any where else you have used it.

Staying powder – The staying power of this concealer is amazing! Mine stayed in place all day and didn’t start to wear off at all! 

Overall I really do love this concealer! It is just perfect for me! So I am going to score this concealer 3/3.


First impression – Seventeen Cosmetics Stay Time 25 hour Foundation 

Hey guys, I am here with the very first first impression post for you all.

As you can tell from the title, today it is my first impression of the Seventeen Cosmetics Stay Time 25 hour foundation! I have never tried any of the Seventeen Cosmetics foundations before trying this one do I wasn’t sure what I was going to get! 
I am going to break down what I thought of the foundation in the categories!

  • Colour – in the Boots that I went too, I got the lightest shade available  ( ) I think there is another shades lighter available in this foundation online. For me the colour was abit off, when I first pumped it onto the back of me hand it looked a tiny bit too dark for me, then when I started applying it too my face it was actually too light and made me look like a ghost. Tho with some powder and bronzer I am able to make it work for me. 
  • Blending – i have tried two different ways to apply this foundation, first was with my expert face Brush and the other was with a beauty blender dupe that I have. With both ways I found this foundation extremely hard to blend out. I felt like I was really pulling at my skin to move the foundation about. 
  • Staying power – even tho I found this foundation really had to blend out, I really like the staying powder of this foundation! The first day I wore it, was for a a 7 and a half hour shift in work and it actually stayed in face all day! I didn’t even have to reapply powder to stop myself from going shiny. 

So over all, I do like this foundation even if I find it had to blend! I will be using this bottle up and seeing if I can get another one maybe in a different shade to see if it matches my skin a bit better then this one. 

I’m a going to score this foundation a 2/3!

Product Empties Series

Hey guys, I am here with yet another series for you all. This series as you can tell by the title of this post is going to be a empties series.

Every 3 months I will be writing a post with a quick part about my thoughts on each product and if I will buy it again or not. As I will be doing this series every 3 months, it will be at the start of each season. So the first post will be coming to you in March.

This series will be good cause you all will get to see what I use up each month but will also show me what I am using more off each month too so I can see what I need to always make sure I have enough of in the house at any one time.

If you have any ideas about series that you would like to see me do on my blog then please let me know in the comments below and I will see if it is something that I can do for you.

I will be back on Monday with yet another new post for you all.

Brand Focus Series

Hey guys, I am here today to tell you all about a series that I will be starting on my blog. This series will be the first of many series that I will be doing on my blog over the next while but for now I am going to start with this one.

With this series, as you can tell from the title it will be a brand focus series. With this series I will only be buying make up, skin care or hair care from one brand each month.For that month I will be only using the products I buy from that brand. At the start of each month, I will be writing a quick post telling and showing you all the products that I will be trying that month. When I first use them I will be writing a first impressions post about how I felt about each product.

With this series, it will be mainly drugstore brands as I wouldn’t be able to buy from high end brands every month. I am not sure what brand I am going to start with first just yet tho will possibly be Maybelline or Max Factor first. I have a list of make up, hair care and skin care brands in which I want to try things from so I have a lot that I want to try, so will be able to do a lot of posts in this series.

Well I hope you will all enjoy this series when I get it started, the first post in the series will posted on Monday so check back then to find out what brand I choose to start this series with.

See you all on Monday
