Seventeen is one of those brands from the high street, I have not really ventured in too. It just seemed to a stand I would walk pass without noticing it much. That all changed a couple of months ago.
I had herd a lot about their Mono eye shadow
in the shade Rose Quartz.
The colour was too beautiful to not have a sneak peak at it in person. One lunch time I found myself at the Seventeen Stand and it was love at first swatch.
Rose Quartz is a dusty rose shade with a hint of shimmer. It is a unique shade from the high street and one I actually do not own in my collection. Unlike most pinks you see, it is quite neutral and wearable during the day as well as in the evening.
The reason I fell in love with the shadow is the pigmentation. The pigmentation for a shadow from the high street is very impressive. I apply this with a shading brush and a packing brush, both gives great colour payoff. You can see you have something on your lids which is not always the case with shadows in this price range.
Formula wise, Rose Quartz was soft and buttery, kind of reminiscent of collection uncovered palette. This makes it easy to blend it on the lids with other shadows. The one problem some of you may have with this shadow is that it is so soft, it can break easily in the packaging. I herd this happened before I bought the shadow so this did not bother me. If you are doing your make up at home 99% of the time, this shadow will be fine in your collection. I may not travel with this shadow incase it shattered everywhere in transit.
The Seventeen Eyeshadow Mono Range retails at £3.99
and has some great shades such as a beautiful turquoise. I always find experimenting with colours on the lids is best with good shadows from the high street as I know I they are not every day shades for me.
Overall these are wonderful shadows on the high street and I may have to experiment with a couple of the shades.
