Boots 17 Makeup range – new kits!

One of these days I am going to do a collective review of all the different eyebrow products (pencils, spoolies, kits etc etc) I own, because there are so many BAD ones that cost a hell of a lot! But for now I’ll just tell you about the kits I picked up from Boots 17 makeup range; ‘Define and Conquer’ contouring kit, and ‘Brow’s that’ brow defining kit.

I’ve heard a lot about contouring and marvelled at how it is done and how effective it can be. The idea is to enhance or give illusion of bone structure. Anyway, 17 have a little kit that I picked up at the introductory price of jsut over £4. I must admit I was expecting a creamy texture, perhaps like a concealer type, but they two shades provided in the kit are actually powder.

I’m still getting the hang of it (tips appreciated), but I think it did make a nice difference when used to define my nose and my cheekbones. In the image below I have also used the 17 Brow kit, which is composed of a wax, a brow pencil, and two shades of brown powder. I’ll admit the brush wasn’t much use but I already had a Model’s Own brush that I could use, but the wax was a good texture and worked just as well as the kit from Benefit, which costs significantly more than this kit.

I’d give them good marks for the packaging as well, very sleek and eye catching.

And voila, the finished look! Excuse the rollers, I was just finishing up on my look for the evening. But you can appreciate the effect the eyebrow kit has in that picture! The other photo shows off the slight contouring I did.

    1. Hey! Thanks for leaving a comment. I’d recommend soap and glory cosmetics too, if youve never tried them a nd like benefit. Faves are kick ass concealer, all their lipsticks and their face powder is amazing. Keep reading xoxo
