Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Seveneteen Stay Time Concealer - Review

Hello everyone 

This week I am reviewing a concealer I have been trying out from the brand Seventeen. Its their 18 hour concealer. After trying and loving the collection lasting perfection concealer I decided to try this and see if it really compares to it. 

The concealer comes in 3 shades that in my personal opinion do not suit all skin types, I picked up fair and it was an okay match. I used the concealer on my under eyes and blemishes. I wore the concealer with and without foundation and applied it on top of my foundation. 

The concealer is £4.49 slightly more expensive than the collection concealer, but does it compare? No not really. The concealer isn't creamy unlike the collection concealer. The concealer blends well it requires a bit more blending when applying over blemishes but that is expected. 

The concealer claims to last 18 hours and gives a flawless finish, I found that it tended to stay for about 5 hours without needing to be touched up. In terms of flawless finish it was fairly dewy, at times it didn't sit right. 

When I wore this with foundation it looked okay with it, the concealer did not fully match with my foundation but that is due to the poor shade range available. Wearing it on its own was not good, the concealer just looked odd on my skin and did not look right at all. 

My biggest problem is the applicator, it is too long and too big it is a doe-foot applicator which I normal don't have a problem with but this one was fairly annoying to use. 

Comparing this to the collection lasting perfection concealer I would say this concealer is barely any competition with the collection one. The formula's are different and this one has a poorer lasting time which for me is really annoying. 

Overall this concealer is fairly average, the shade range is not good and the product itself doesn't last for the whole time unless you re-apply it throughout the day several times. For the price the product is quite disappointing. This was the first product I had tried from seventeen and I was not fully impressed. 

Next week I will be reviewing the Rimmel Scanadeleyes mascara. 

Thanks for reading!
