A couple of weeks ago Seventeen sent me a package of some of their products to try. Seventeen is a brand I’ve heard of and used before – one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes is Seventeen – but I’d never used any of their lip products. Lipsticks are definitely my weakness and I have a huge collection (I can’t seem to stop) so when I saw that they’d sent me four products from their brand new Mega Matte Lipstick range I was pretty happy.
Orange You Gorgeous, Nude News, Lava You A Lot, Violet Summer
Firstly I really liked the monochrome packaging and I like the shape of the lipsticks themselves, as well as the colours. I tried Orange You Gorgeous as soon as I got it because I’ve been thinking about getting a colour like this for a while but wasn’t sure if I could pull it off – turns out it’s not the best option for me personally and pink nudes suit me better but hey, you don’t know if you don’t try! So Nude News was a much better option for me and it’s exactly what I’d normally go for. I quite liked the formula of these because they feel really creamy which I like in a lipstick, especially mattes. Also the staying power of these was much better than I’d expected considering they’re available at Boots for just £4.50 each!
I’m yet to try Violet Summer as I’m not feeling brave enough just yet but Nude News and Lava You A Lot definitely get the thumbs up from me.
Has anyone else tried these? What did you think?
