17 Glitter Eyeshadow

I've been meaning to review these for a while as I have some many of the 17 single eyeshadows. There's another review to come soon on 17 Solo eyeshadows.  
These eyeshadows are from the 17 Glitter range. I ordered these online and received six eyeshadows. These are definitely 'glitter' eyeshadows. The moment that I opened the top of them the glitter was very obvious. These have a very smooth texture. I did find that they had fallout and because it was glittery I also found that it  spread over my face. This would be my only concern with using these as I usually have to use a small amount of makeup remover and a cotton pad to clean up the fall out under my eyes. It helps to apply the foundation afterwards, which I usually do so this wasn't a huge problem. The Glitter eyeshadows are also very pigmented which is great considering the price.

I haven't used a primer in the swatches below that shows how pigmented they are. I usually use primer when I wear these eyeshadows. I applied these recently and they lasted about 6 hours before I noticed slight creasing on the lids. This was easily fixed by simply blendly out the creased area and the pigmentation remained the same.

Glitter Eye Shadow comes in a small black container with a removable lid. I like that these have a clear cover as I can see exactly which colour I am looking for.    

I purchased these online at Camelliashop Cosmetics Wholesale UK. However on the Boots website they are £3.89. I think they are approximately €4 to €5 in stores. 

Would I buy this again? Yes. 


  1. I've never used the 17 shadows before but have to say picked up Rose Quartz in Newry last week & it's fast becoming a go to shadow! Will deffny be investigating further, their longevity is fab for such a low price.

  2. I know when I got my first one, ages ago, I was so susprised by how long they lasted considering the price.
