seventeen concealers

seventeen concealers review swatch photo
Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour concealer & Seventeen Phwoarr Paint concealer (£5.49)

Today I'm coming at you with a review on two Seventeen Concealers in the form of the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer and the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint. I thought I'd give them a whirl as my usual drugstore concealer, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, has once again been used up. I cant get enough of it's budget friendly awesomeness. My local Boots back at my Mums doesn't actually stock collection so I thought fast (and thought about reviews I'd recently seen) as to which ones I should give a go.

I find the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint to be quite thick, paste like concealer. You apply it with your fingers and tap under the eye to blend. It's very thick and creamy but doesn't look or feel cakey on application. It's seriously heavy duty, and I find it does crease slightly under the eyes, so you do need to set it with a powder. It's not one for dry skin so I would recommend using a good eye cream prior to application. On the upside, It's easy to blend, covers flawlessly and really hides any unsightly discolouration. I tested this on some spots as well, and it gave excellent full coverage. The Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour concealer reminds me a bit of the Collection Lasting Perfection, the packaging is very similar, and it feels the same on the skin. It covers spots, under eyes circles and any discolouration. I cant work out if this is just Seventeen's version of the Collection concealer, they seem to do exactly the same job in my eyes! I think its a bit thinner than it's Collection counterpart but is slightly less matte. It covers well and doesn't feel drying or cakey while blending easily into the skin.

Overall I think I prefer the Collection Lasting Perfection to the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer. But the Stay Time is a good budget friendly option if you cant get hold of the Collection one. I also give thumbs up to Seventeen Pwhoarr Paint, and actually I think I'll continue to use is as long as I'm using it correctly with eye cream and powder. It's heavy duty and works wonders and covering my bags! Plus it's super long lasting so touch up's are minimal.
Do you like the sound of either of these?

  10. I don't get on with the Collection concealer at all, the Phwoarr Paint sounds fab although the name is making me cringe slightly..

  11. Definitely tempted to try both of these out, the phwoarr paint sounds really good, I don't have any luck with the MAC studio finish concealer so the phwoarr paint sounds like it might be a good high coverage option x

  18. I don't think I would like the Phwoarr Paint as I'm not a fan of thick concealers.. They just crease too much under my eyes even if I set them with powder. I do like the sound of the Stay Time concealer, especially if it's like the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer! :) x

  19. I have been loving concealer recently - mainly due to the fact that I need more sleep! But have been loving garniers bb eye roll on and the lasting collection concealer! When that runs out I will have to pick up the stay time concealer! Sounds good!

  20. Seventeen is a brand I never thought to look into for concealers but the collection in my boots is always sold out in my shade for the lasting perfection concealer so maybe I will give seventeen a go! Thanks Lily this was really helpful :)

  24. i'm currently using a stick concealer from witch that i've had for so long i can't even remember buying it and whilst it's great for covering up blemishes, it's the complete wrong colour (meaning blending out is a must!) and you can't use it for under the eyes. as a result, i'm on the look out for something to take its place. i've heard so many rave reviews about the collection lasting perfection concealer and so i was going to choose that one but after reading your thoughts on these two products i might actually go and get this duo to test out. they sound great and perfect for what i need (that little bit of extra coverage on blemishes and discolouration!). i'm definitely going to be looking out for these in store! :) X
