SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palettes | Birthday Suit & The Big Smoke

SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palettes - Birthday Suit & The Big Smoke SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palettes - Birthday Suit & The Big Smoke
I am a huge fan of SEVENTEEN makeup after trying a few of their products last year and really loving them, so when I was sent these Easy on the Eye palettes* to try out I was so excited!  I mentioned in my last post about SEVENTEEN how they have seriously upped their game with their new branding and these eye palettes are no different. They come in a black plastic casing which is very neat and slim, it also has a big mirror inside which I find really useful. As well as this, the palettes come with a double ended brush and a guide with lots of looks to try out. The brush isn’t great, however it is a lot better than I would expect from a palette which costs £7.99.  
 SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palette - Birthday Suit

The first of the Easy on the Eye palettes is 'Birthday Suit' which is pictured above. This is probably my favourite of the two as I just absolutely love neutral shades and wear them every day. It contains 12 shades in total, 8 that are powder eye shadows varying from matte and shimmer formula, 3 metallic creams and 1 clear eye primer. I love that fact that this palette contains a range of finishes like this as it makes it perfect for traveling when you don't want to take too many different items with you.

The shades in this palette are individually named which I think is a great plus, as normally cheaper palettes are just numbered. The top row left to right - Gentle Pink, Sun Kissed Peach, Cool Rose, Toasted Almond, Bronzed Buff, Pink Flush. The bottom row left to right - Warm Ivory, Radiant Gold, Warm Mink, Baked Chestnut, Burnt Copper, Eye Primer. I'm not really a massive fan of the eye primer and metallic cream shades, as I feel the formula isn't great and they are a bit sticky. However for a palette at this price I can't really complain. The powder eye shadows on the other hand are great! The quality is quite impressive and they are very pigmented. My current favourites are Toasted Almond and Bronzed Buff which I have been using together for a daytime look.

SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palette - The Big Smoke
The second of the Easy on the Eye palettes pictured above is 'The Big Smoke'. This palette is the same structure as 'Birthday Suit' so it has 8 powders, 3 metallic creams and one eye primer and each shade is individually named. Top row from left to right - Twilight Blue, Cocoa Brown, Smoky Marble, Wild Khaki, Cool Aluminium, Illuminated Bronze. Bottom row from left to right - Onyx Black, Slate Grey, Cloudy Lilac, Warm Ivory, Pink Flush, Eye Primer.

Again, I am not a fan of the primer in this palette, but I do actually prefer the metallic creams in this one. The shades in this palette are absolutely gorgeous and they are perfect for a smoky eye look. I like to use this palette for evening, night out looks which are slightly more dramatic and the metallic creams are amazing underneath the powders to create a more intense finish. My current favourite shades from this palette are Smoky Marble and Onyx Black which is such a gorgeous purple shade.
SEVENTEEN Easy On The Eye Palettes - User Guide
As I mentioned earlier, each of these eye palettes comes with a guide of how to create a range of different makeup looks which you can see above. This is such a nice extra which I think is great to get with a cheaper priced palette. After trying out each of these Easy on the Eye palettes a few times I can most definitely say I really like them both. The quality of the powder eye shadows is great and I love the overall packaging. They retail at £7.99 each and are available from Boots, they are currently on offer for £6.99 online here if you are interested.

Yet again I am really impressed with SEVENTEEN and it has just made me love the brand even more! Have you tried either of these Easy on the Eye palettes? What are your favourites from SEVENTEEN?
