Review: 17 Blush & Glow in Strawberry Swirl

Hello darlings :)

Quite a while ago now I made an order with Boots, and whilst I was perusing the website, I couldn't resist picking up this blush as I'd heard such good things about it. I'm so glad I did, I'm quite liking the 17 range!



*No flash*

17 say: Uber-girly, bright, bold cheeks were spotted at the Betty Jackson and John Rocha Spring/Summer 2010 catwalk shows. Get your own sweet cheeks, with the new 17 Blush & Glow compacts in Strawberry Swirl and Peaches & Cream, which contain both a wash of colour and a highlighter, allowing you to sculpt perfect cheekbones.

I say: I'd been eyeing this up for a while in Boots, unsure as to whether to take the plunge, as I'd never used products from 17 before. After hearing good things about it, I bought it, and I could not be more pleased with it. I love that it's a 2-in-1 product - brilliant if you're off on your travels! Strawberry swirl is a gorgeous buildable colour with a lovely gold toned highlight - perfect for summer!



17 say: Not a thing. Not a peep. Nada. Nothing. But we all know how to apply blush and highlight right? Thought so :D

I say: I've been using my e.l.f. Studio Blush Brush to apply this, which works an absolute treat! The colour is gorgeous, and easily buildable and blendable. The highlight is simply gorgeous! It's a gold toned shade and I think it'd suit most skin tones as it's not in-your-face gold if that makes sense? Overall, really impressed with this. Go and grab one before they disappear off the shelves!
