After dying my hair back to blonde, I found myself in a bit of a makeup pickle. There I was, applying my normal Double Wear foundation, only to find that I was now looking alarmingly orange. As, I'm sure you're aware when your hair colour changes, more often than not you may need to shake up your makeup routine too. With lighter hair, I have found that I now need a lighter foundation for my skin tone so I was straight off to Boots. I have tried Seventeen's Stay Time foundation before and it's pretty amazing. I wanted to try this in a different shade, so after trying to swatch in Boots - the mirrors and lighting make that near impossible for me - I ended up buying the palest shade of 'Soft Ivory'. It's a full coverage foundation and now matches my skin tone much better than my Double Wear, although I'm currently mixing the Stay Time with a drop of Collection's Lasting Perfection to add just a little extra colour to my skin.
At the Seventeen stand, I couldn't help but notice the offer of having a free 'Back Lash' mascara with any two Seventeen products. I love Seventeen as a brand, they are so affordable and the products are great quality too. I needed to buy a new liquid eyeliner after being left unimpressed by Collection's Fast Stroke liner, so I was pleased to find the 'Wet Look Lacquer Eyeliner' for only £3.99. It's a dinky little pot but the brush is perfectly thin which is just what I love to create a little flick. I'm really impressed with it so far! As I now had two seventeen products, I was able to have the free Back Lash mascara (I had the last black one, yay!). So, for a total of £10.48, I've got a new eyeliner, mascara and a full coverage foundation - yay!
