Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Concealer Review


SEVENTEEN Phwoarr Paint Heavy Duty Concealer Review

Seventeen has recently launched a new makeup line called 'Phwoarr'. This range consists of 3 products: a Primer, a Concealer & a CC Cream - all 3 together are supposed to give you perfect, long lasting coverage and 'everything you need to face the world'. I have only bought the Concealer from this range as I love my Laura Mercier Primer & I'm not fully on board with this CC hype!

The first thing I thought when I opened this was 'this is identical to Bobbi Browns Creamy Concealer'. I was using Bobbi Browns Concealer for about 2 years and loved it, I only ventured away from it because I wanted to experiment with a few other products on the market. Not only is this product cheaper but you get 7 times the amount of product ... crazy I know!!!! The tiny Bobbi Brown container contains 1.7g and is priced at £18.50, Seventeen Phwoarr is priced at £5.49 and contains a massive 12g.

This product is only available 2 shades - Light & Medium which is very limited (I opted for the Light shade). Some concealers are made to go on top of your foundation but this one is pretty heavy duty and should be applied before. I just used my fingers and apply it in the classic K-Dash triangle under my eyes, I then add my foundation on top and blend it all in together.

This concealer definitely covered all my dark circles and gave me a bright, illuminated look under my eyes. The consistency is quite thick, if you have thin skin, or are worried about dragging this may not be for you, the only solution to this is to keep it warm (on top of a radiator or with a quick blast of a hairdryer), it may also help apply some eye moisturiser beforehand.

I am super impressed with this concealer - it gives me perfect coverage, a highlighted look and is cheap! I can definitely see the drawbacks though for others (not enough shades available, to thick for some people to use) but I would definitely recommend checking it out in your local Boots!


Have you tried any of the Phwoarr Range?

  10. Hey Stevie - I had never heard of this range until now so thank you for bringing it to my attention - may have to give that concealer a go. As for CC creams It took me a long time to get on board with BB let alone CC though I have to say that I do love the L'oreal CC cream you should give it a go if you haven't already tried it. Love Laura xxx http://www.ascottishlass.com
