SEVENTEEN // Lipsticks And Shimmer Brick

This is my first post, so I thought I'd dive straight in by sharing a few products I bought from Boots a couple of weeks ago. Now as you probably know, Boots always has some kind of deal on and this time it happened to be three for two on all make up - one of my favourites! Sadly I didn't have very much money to spend, otherwise I probably would have gone wild. After much umming and aahing I decided to try out some products from Boots' brand Seventeen. I ended up choosing two lipsticks and a shimmer brick highlighter, here's what I thought of them.. :)

Top: Toffee Waffle, Bottom: Hot Chilli

17 Lasting Fix Lipstick
Price: £4.29

Toffee Waffle has become my favourite go to lipstick at the moment. It's a lovely warm orangey brown that just matches with absolutely everything! I haven't worn Hot Chilli as much, but it's a gorgeous coral colour - perfect for summer. I think these two are great; they're super pigmented, last for hours and they're also matte lipsticks which are my fave type. 

 17 Instant Glow Pink Bronze Shimmer Brick
Price: £4.99

This also caught my eye so I decided to go for it - I've been searching for a good highlighter lately. The colours in it are beautiful, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed with its pigmentation. It's quite a subtle highlight, which is okay for everyday wear but not really what I was looking for.

All in all though pretty good for under a tenner, I wouldn't mind trying some of their products again soon :)
