One thing I look forward to about Spring time (apart from eating copious amounts of chocolates & going on Easter egg hunts) are the Limited Edition Spring/Summer makeup ranges that start hitting the shops. I am an absolute sucker for seasonal limited edition products that beauty companies release that I can’t help but want them all!
A favourite brand of mine who do seasonal LE products very well is 17. Do you remember the GORGEOUS palette I picked up from their Spring range last year (review here)? Well, this year they are back with two new limited edition palettes for you to drool over!
Read on for swatches and reviews!
Spring Fling palette in Hazy Days – I think this is a gorgeous palette with a lovely choice of colours. It has a light, soft gold colour which is perfect for a base to the eyes, as well as two gorgeously pigmented browns and a green shadow for adding a pop of colour to the eyes. All of these shadows are shimmery which is perfect for adding a little sparkle this Spring.
Spring Fling Palette in Spring Brights – Another beautiful palette to look at, but unfortunately these shadows are quite light which means they aren’t very pigmented. The swatches above were heavily swatched on my arm and as you can see they are still quite fair. This palette is gorgeous if you want a subtle sweep of gold or purple on the eyes but not if you want a lot of intense colour.
The pink in this palette is the only matte shade which works beautifully as a blush if you try not to pick up any of the other colours on your blusher brush (haha!). I can imagine this palette looking beautt-ii-full on darker skin tones, particularly the purple and gold!
What I think – These are gorgeous little palettes to have in your makeup bag this summer, but they aren’t so great if your looking for intensely pigmented eye shadows. I think I prefer Hazy Days, solely for the fact that it’s a little more pigmented than Spring Brights and because the golden brown shades in it are just the types of colours I like to wear daily. Each palette has a mirror in the lid and they come in cute compact cases so they’re perfect for travelling with.
Each palette will retail at £6.99 and will be available for a limited time only in Boots stores. There are a few more products in the Spring range from 17 which I will also be reviewing very soon.
I have also created a ‘Face of the Day’ with the Spring 17 collection which I am posting on Thursday as part of a blogging competition – stay tuned to see how I wore these pallets!
What do you think of these LE 17 Spring palettes? Which do you prefer?
