17 Spring Vintage Love Collection 2011

When this press release popped into my email box last night I was oohing and aahing over the images I was seeing. I don't usually post about new collections but 17's new Vinatge Love collection was just too delightful not to share. The limited edition collection is made up of a selection of romantic pastel shades, perfect to give you a soft and subtle spring look and capture the whimsical spirit of the new season. It's time to banish dark winter shades and experiment with a fresh, feminine and flirty new look. 

17 Vintage Love Eye Palettes, £5.49, in Metallic Nude and Pretty Pastels. 
Available from 28 January 2011

I adore the girly, vintage style packaging of these eyeshadow palettes, definitely the prettiest I've seen! As for the different colours, I'm lusting after the Metallic Nude palette despite already having similar shades. I love neutral, copper and brown shades for the eyes, they're very versatile and can be used for a subtle or dramatic look. However, I am tempted to venture out of my comfort zone and try out pastels for a change, who knows, I might love it!

I love the look of each of these colours. Every lip gloss collection needs a nude, a coral and a pale pink shade!

 17 Vintage Love Nail Colours, £2.99. 
L-R: Woo Me, Forever, Sweet Kisses, Chaperone
Available from 28 January 2011. 

I'm a big fan of 17's nail polishes already and these pretty pastel shades are just what I'm after to add to my collection. I love sorbet colour nail polishes, especially with a tan to set them off!

I love the packaging of these products, they look very Hollywood to me. The foundation and primer sound promising so I'm keen to give them a try.

I've been pleasantly surprised with these new releases from 17. They seem to have come a long way from how I remembered the brand, which was very basic, cheap looking packaging. They seem to have re-vamped their image and I'm loving it! Look out for reviews on these products soon.
