Review : 17 Eyeshadow Trio

I recently purchased this 17 Eyeshadow Trio. 17 is cheaper version of another Boots' own brand - No.7, and is aimed to appeal to teenage girls, who are obviously on a budget. I personally did not experiment with this particular brand before but I had a few spare pennies and this trio caught my eye, i tested it in the store and I was pleasantly surprised! I have to say it's very good for the price i paid (around, mhmmm... £4?),the pigmentation is great - the colour comes out almost the same as you see it in the pot! The colour i got is 'Metallic Toffee' and is a mixture of toffee/gold/brown colours, all in shimmery finishes. You can create a endless looks with this because the colours are so versatile. It is dematologically tested and fragrance-free for those of you who are allergic to specific scents which are needlessly added to make-up. The packaging itself is alright, nothing special. Overall, I have to say that I will probably buy more of these in different colours, if the pigmentation is just as good.

The swatches are rubbish, once again! The photos really don't do these beauties justice, I'd say next time you're up in Boots try out this little gem!
