#7 -- Makeup -- Fearne Cotton for Boots

So, I was thinking what to do my next blog post on and was looking through the stuff I got for Xmas and my Birthday and decided to tell you all my thoughts on Fearne Cotton's makeup collection for Boots, I got most of it for my Birthday and Xmas from my Bf. As soon as I heard she was bringing out a makeup range I knew I had to get some/most of it! I love Fearne Cotton, her Very range is beautiful, she's got a great sense of style and she's unique. And her makeup definitely lives up to all of that.

First I thought I would start with my favorite makeup product of all, Nail Polish.
Her colours include: "Colour Nails by Night" which includes Red, Shimmery Dark Red, Black, Silver, Dark Purple and Royal Blue, And her "Colour Nails by Day" which includes Gum Coloured Pink, Baby Pink, Silver, Dark Pink, Apple Green and Lilac Purple.
All of the bottles have a different picture/symbol on them in gold. They are opaque in 2 coats and are easy to apply, they also dry quickly.

Next up is her eyeliners. There is three colours in her Jumbo eyeliner collection these are: "Envious Green" a gorgeous shimmery green, "Violet Vamp" a nice dark purple and "Night Owl" a black colour. There is also a regular sized "Night Owl" with a smudger on the other side.
The colours of the eyeliners are very pigmented and the application is very easy and smooth, they are also long lasting and I love the quirky names they have, and the writing on the sides of them.

And next up is a eyeshadow compact. At first glance I thought this was a compact mirror as that is what it looks like but when I opened it up I actually discovered it has eyeshadows inside. They are joined together in 5 stripes and the colours include Teal, Gold, Beigey Gold Shimmer, Brown and Bronze. There is a mirror inside of the compact, the outside is black with a gold skull logo which appears across her range. They are very easy to apply, quite well pigmented and highly shimmery.

Next up is the eyeshadow dust pots, much like Barry M's dazzle dusts in the way they are in the pot. They come in 3 shades which are Gunmetal, Gold and Bronze. The pots are very small and include the skull logo on the top of each of them, they are very shimmery, easy and smooth to apply and are very highly pigmented.

Next up is her "Made You Look, Made You Stare" Eyeshadow palette, this comes with 2 brushes and a mirror inside. The colours included are: Cream, Brown, Green, Red, Lilac, Silver, Gold, Olive, Purple and Black. The packaging is lovely, it's vintage looking it has the skull printed in gold and silver and it has flowers on the packaging. It's very sleek. All of the eyeshadows except for the black are shimmery, most have good pigmentation and they are again easy to apply.

Last up is the makeup product I probably use the least, usually only when I am having a night out, Lipsticks.
The products I have include, a lipliner called "Natural" and the Lipstick and Lipgloss to match as they were part of a set. And I also have a pink sparkle and a red lipgloss which came in the Fearne Cotton Hatbox. All of the lip products work very well, are smooth in application and are highly pigmented. The actually lipstick packaging is very nice, sleek and gold with the skull printed on it again.

 Overall I am very pleased with Fearne Cottons makeup range and it definately lived up to my expectations and I would definately buy it again.
