17 Solo Eyeshadow Funfair

Saturday, 14 December 2013

My so-called fashion blog has turned into a bit of a beauty bonanza recently, mainly because I just can't stop buying pretty makeup bits. I recently was checking out the offers on my Boots card (what a godsend they are!!) and found a voucher for half-price Seventeen eyeshadows. I have to admit that I've never really taken a proper look at what this brand has to offer. But this time, I made my way over to the Seventeen stand to check out the options and was seriously impressed. There were so many lovely colours and finishes to choose from meaning that it took AGES to make a final decision, but I eventually picked 'FUNFAIR'.
As you can see, it's a lovely shimmery pink in the pot and actually transfers onto the skin EXACTLY how it looks in the pot. You would not believe the amount of times I've fallen in love with a colour, only to find that you need 18847476767867 layers to actually see it! This is perfectly pigmented with just one swipe and is the most gorgeous colour. In some lights, gold flecks are caught, making this almost a two-tone shadow. A pinky-gold delight! As for wear time, I've found it's pretty standard, and looks perfect blended with other shades in the outer-corner and the crease. I tried a musky brown and the two colours complimented each other perfectly. 
I'm super-impressed with this purchase and definitely won't be walking past the Seventeen stand again!


  1. this colour is so on trend right now, great find! plus it was half off of an already inexpensive price - amazing! x


  2. So pretty! We don't have this brand in Canada, but I think I'll have to request it in my next beauty swap! Do you have any other faves by Seventeen?

  3. I have one shaddow from seventeen called "walnut pearl" and it's SO pretty! This looks like it would compliment it SO well!


  4. Ooh what a lovely pinky gold shade, it actually looks really nice against your skin in the swatch photo!
