Seventeen is a brand that I've always to seemed to have dipped in and out of over the years, I go through phases where I'll buy a few products from them and love them but then they just seem to get lost in my makeup collection. This was until recently anyway, I'd say that over the past 6 months I've really grown to love and stick with the brand after trying out a lot more products, I always stop to have a browse at the stand in Boots and I adore and use their Stay Time Concealer everyday. This meant that when the opportunity came up to try one of their newest concealers I just had to say yes and I've been trying it out for about a month now.
It has a brush like applicator and you click a button at the end to get the product out, usually applicators like that can be a little messy but I haven't found that to be the case with this. It claims to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and brighten the skin under yours eyes, a cheaper alternative to the YSL Touche Eclat it would seem.
I use the applicator to apply it to my under eye and cheekbone area and then blend it in using my fingers, I've tried using a fluffy blending brush and a beauty blender too but find using my fingers works best. The swatch above doesn't quite do it justice but it is a very illuminating product, it doesn't have quite as much coverage as the Stay Time concealer but I find that the brightening element to this helps to cover my dark circles just as well as it keeps things looking light and bright. It works really well across my cheekbones as well to just lift things a little whilst making my skin look more even. It's a light product so it doesn't quite last all day, especially as I don't powder over the top as that would dim down how glowy and radiant it is. I often find that using a bit of the Stay Time concealer first and then this over the top helps to keep things in place all day long or you could easily top it up throughout the day.
I have to say once again a Seventeen concealer has impressed me greatly, this is now the 3rd concealer from them that I love so it's safe to say if you are looking for something inexpensive but still high performing then they are the place to go. I used to religiously use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer but since I've found these ones I haven't touched it in over a year! You can buy this in Boots stores and online for £4.99 and it comes in 2 shades (the only downside really, not a big range of shades!).

This product was sent to me for review consideration but this does not affect my opinion and I am always 100% honest.
