Seventeen Phwoarr Paint

It’s been a controversial product I must admit, with some Bloggers loving it and others really not feeling it. I can completely see why but in my opinion, I absolutely LOVE it! 

Seventeen has been one of my favourite high street brands for a good few years now. It was one of the first brands I bought from when I started buying my own makeup and has been like that ever since. I’m a huge fan of their foundations, with a blog post yet to come on my most favourite, and their Mascaras are equally as good as any other high street brand. I think over the last 2 or 3 years, they have really grown and have produced some amazing products. 

As it states on the pot, it is a HEAVY DUTY under eye concealer and that is exactly what I use it for. I suffer with dark under eye circles and they are worse when i’ve had a bad nights sleep so using a good concealer is a must for me on most days. Phwoarr is perfect for me as it is really thick when applied but creamy enough it blends out evenly. I use a stippling brush to blend mine out or if my dark circles are a little worse than normal, I pat in with my ring finger so it doesn’t get blended in too much. I also find that applying before foundation gives me better coverage but you could always apply after! 

In the pot is a tiny but brilliant mirror and I find it really hand to apply using this as I can get right up to my eye rather than sitting a foot or so away from my larger mirror. I think one of the only things they could improve is the shades the concealer comes in. At the moment, there are only 2 shades available - Fair and Medium - and for me, it’s not a problem as fair suits me perfectly but I can imagine for a lot of girls out there, those shades just don’t suit their skin so instantly rules them out to be able to buying it. 

For £5.49 you really can’t knock this concealer and it’s available online or at any Boots store. I bought Fake up a few months back and actually find myself reaching for this more than I do that! If like me you suffer with dark circles, I really recommend you grab yourself a pot of Phwoarr if you haven’t already, i’m onto my second pot already!!
