Perfect for Christmas- Fearne Cotton Makeup

I know Christmas isn't quite here but its only around the corner, less then 60 days to go. I thought it was time to get started with my 'Perfect for Christmas' posts where I will suggest perfect presents to ask for or to give.

Today's products are from quite a new brand which I hadn't actually tried and that's the 'Fearne Cotton' range for Boots.
The first product I tried was the 'Fearne Cotton It's All About The Lips - Purple' which comes with a small lip liner, lip gloss and lip stick. The packing for the lipstick is very pretty and I actually like every product although I don't usually wear purple on my lips. This product comes in a great size to carry in your bag and I also like that the lip liner, lipstick and lip gloss are all very similar shades.
The next product I was extremely impressed, Fearne Cotton 'Made You Look, Made You Stare' eyeshadow palette- I even like the name!  The packaging of this product is very pretty I love the skull in contrast to the pretty flowers and it all seems very well made.

The colour selection is possibly where this product is let down a little although the colours are beautiful I can't imagine wearing very many of them together. The pigmentation of the eye shadows is great, apart from with the white one and I also love that some eyeshadows are shimmery where as others are matte. Quality of the eyeshadows is also great, they are smooth to apply and easy to blend.
This palette remind me of the Urban Decay Ammo palette because of the layout, the type of packaging and some of the colours however I am sure I will reach for this palette much more (I rarely use the Ammo palette).
Overall, I think that the ' Made you look. made you stare' is a great product for just £10 and I think it would make a great Christmas present or stocking filler, I hope this range realises more of these palettes, I think I will buy them all! I would also love to try the 'It's all about the lips' in another colour such as pink but also think it is a great product.

I was very pleasantly surprised with this range and will pick up some more products soon.

  1. Mmmm! I like the look of those!
    I saw the double-ended brushes in the Boots Xmas mag and am dying to try those- I think that's such a good idea, twice the brush for the same price!
