FREE Fest Of All Kit with 17 Cosmetics!

I was in Boots the other day and I was amazed by all the freebie offers they had on with all the different brands! 

I took advantage of 17's offer. Spend £6 or more and get the free Fest Of All Kit.

I also checked out the Boots Advantage card machine for any offers. & Found that you could get a 'Hide & Chic Eye Brightening Concealer Pen' with any 17 purchase!
So here's what I got...


17 Hide & Chic Anti-Fatigue Foundation - Shade Biscuit - £6.29.
I have tried this foundation a couple of times since buying. It does make your skin appear lighter which is fab for those mornings where you look like death warmed up? Or is that just me? Unfortunately I'm not too keen on this product, its consistency is a little thick for me and it feels like it clogs up my skin more than my usual foundations. It gives great coverage, but I've found it doesn't last very long. Now it is a good foundation don't get me wrong, but for the price, I would recommend buying Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation instead. 

17 Hide & Chic Eye Brightening Concealer Pen - Medium Rose - £4.99
As I say this was actually free using a voucher from my Boots Advantage card. Unfortunately this was the last one left and it is actually too dark for my skin. However, it is very light and provides a nice coverage but still leaves the skin looking fresh and dewy. I think if there had been the lighter shade this would have been perfect and I would definitely use this product regularly.

17 Instant Glow Body Bronzer - Medium Matte - Usually £4.99
I was really looking forward to trying this product out, I love everything to do with self tanning, bronzing etc. Medium Matte shade is not as dark as the tans/bronzers I normally use, but it gives the skin a nice sunkissed look without any shimmer, so it gives a natural finish. It does wash off, which is good because you could just put it on for a night out and wash it off afterwards for work the next morning! I don't think I would pay the normal price for this, but I will definitely use the rest of this tube.

17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish - Tropical Island - Usually £2.99
I absolutely love the bright bold colour of this nail polish! Its perfect for the summer months. Admittedly the coverage isn't great, and you probably would need about 3 coats to get a completely opaque finish. It is a bright orange/coral colour, with tiny specs of glitter. I like the applicator brush, it makes light work of covering the nail in pretty much one stroke. I don't have many 17 nail polishes but I might get some more after trying this one.

17 Eye Liner Pencil - Onyx - Usually £2.89
Now, not being funny, but you can never have too many black eye liners can you? There's nothing special about this one, but still, it's cheap and it does the job! I haven't yet tried it out to see how long it lasts. But I'm not expecting too much from it. I'll let you know if I discover differently :)


So there you have it, my little bargain shopping spree!
When you total it up, I've had around £23 worth of products for just £6.29.

I'm really happy with most of the items.
Have you got this kit, what do you think of it?

  1. Ooooh great little haul there Laura! :)

    Did you get the concealer free even though you'd got the Fest Of All set?


    1. Thank you.

      Yes, I didn't think I would but I double checked the voucher before hand and it didn't mention anything about not being used in conjunction with another offer. So I thought why not! :)
