The Review | 17 Instant Glow

17 Instant Glow Gold Bronze Shimmer Brick £4.80

This is meant to be a near dupe for Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick, now I haven't used the Bobbi Brown one so I can't compare buuut I do quite like this little product.

I used the middle two colours to contour my cheeks or to create the above look, and the top one to do a bit of highlighting. I found the bottom colour a bit too dark so haven't really used that one much. I will say the top two together are a bit too shimmery for everyday use (for me) but the middle two are perfect. As you can see above, it's still quite shimmery, but it's bearable!

It lasts a couple of hours, nothing incredibly long, but as long as you'd expect with a cheaper brand like 17. It's a nice product and I have been using it everyday, it's nice to add a bit of tan to the face with this awful weather!

I would buy this again, it's a really nice cheap product, and a lot better quality then I expected so well done 17!

Have you tried the Bobbi Brown version? How does it compare?


  1. I've heard a few rave reviews about this lately and it certainly does look like a good dupe for the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick! :) x x.

    1. It is really good! Such a good quality product for the price as well, would definitely recommend :)
