I haven’t seen anything new from Boots brand Seventeen for a while so I was keen to give this new eyeshadow palette a whirl and see what it could do. It includes powder and cream, and also an eye primer which is interesting, and all at a bargain price tag. Here’s a look at Seventeen Easy on the Eye Birthday Suit Palette.
If you’ve had much experience of Seventeen before, you’ll notice that the packaging has had a bit of a makeover. It’s a super sleek palette, and when I say that, I mean it in more ways than one. It’s sleek and convenient, and it also very much has the look and feel of a Sleek Makeup branded palette. I think it’s a good thing – definitely a better look.
Seventeen Easy on the Eye Birthday Suit Palette Contents
- 8 powder shadows across matte, shimmer and pearl finishes
- 3 metallic cream shadows
- An eye primer
As you’d imagine from a palette called Birthday Suit, it offers up a range of easy to wear neutrals and they are all definitely my kind of colours. It has a double ended brush (no rubbish sponge) the palette opens all the way to flat, so no awkward angles and it has a really big mirror, making a great little travel companion.
Seventeen Easy on the Eye Birthday Suit Palette Swatches
Powders Top Row: Gentle Pink, Sun Kissed Peach, Cool Rose, Toasted Almond:
Powders Bottom Row: Warm Ivory, Radiant Gold, Warm Mink, Baked Chestnut:
Cream Metallics: Bronzed Buff, Pink Flush, Burnt Copper:
The pigmentation and texture is pretty good, although some of the powders aren’t as creamy as others and don’t give quite as good colour pay off. Having said that, the primer is actually very effective at intensifying the pigments. Here is one of the weaker shadows, Cool Rose, applied on top of the primer.
As you can see, it performs much better like that.
I think Seventeen Easy on the Eye Birthday Suit is a pretty good little palette for the price. It’s just £7.99 and currently available to order online HERE
