Boots 17 Blushes in China Pink and First Kiss Review and Swatches

While on holiday a little while ago I took a couple of 17 blushes with me and decided to review them as they are something worth talking about. Cheap (£3.49 from Boots), nicely pigmented and good quality, what's not to like really?

I only own China Pink (left) and First Kiss (right), but I believe there are 5 shades in the line - according to the Boots website anyway. China Pink is a cool pink shade, whereas First Kiss has a golden sheen to it and is generally a lot warmer. They are not that different in the swatches, but China Pink is definitely the cooler one. I love First Kiss for its golden sheen, it's not glittery/shimmery, just has a bit of sheen. I think it's a brilliant everyday blush colour.

Annoyingly the packaging doesn't say how big they are, but they're about the size of a Mac blush, so at £3.49 they're definitely a bargain. Do you own any 17 blushes? If so, which one is your favourite shade?

  1. These look really nice for cheapies! In Australia (or at least where I am in Aus) you can get this brand in stalls in shopping centres, but it's never a whole range it's just dribs and drabs. I like the idea of a nice cheap blush, they'd be great for taking on holiday as you wouldn't be stressing about breaking/losing them because it would be affordable to replace them. Will check them out now that I know they are nice quality, thanks!
