In the run up to Christmas, Boots have a special offer on each week where they have one of their Christmas gifts on for half price or slightly less than half price! I'm not always interested in these offers as I don't really have anyone to buy beauty gifts for and I'm not always willing to buy them for myself but I couldn't resist this weeks.
This set by Ted Baker is called 'The Great and the Gorgeous' and first of all I love the packaging! It's pink, has a floral design on the back AND has rose gold! Perfect! Of course the contents are pretty good too! I'm impressed by the quality of these products as I'm not one for cheapy makeup sets. The original price of this gift is £40 but you can get it for £19 for the next week (until 7th November 2013) or until it sells out.
- 1 pale pink nail polish
- 1 glittery gold nail polish
- 1 pale pink/champagne cream eyeshadow
- 1 pink glitter eyeshadow
- 1 pinky red lip crayon
- 1 plum lip crayon
- 1 pair of false eyelashes with glue
- 1 thin felt tip style eyeliner
- 1 set of 4 eye makeup brushes
- 1 pale pink liquid illuminator
- 1 bronze-gold liquid illuminator
- 1 powder bronzing compact
I'm loving so much of this kit. The cream eyeshadow is a gorgeous colour, the lip crayons are really pigmented and glossy, the false lashes look nice and natural, the pink colour of the brushes is so nice, love the illuminators and the bronzing compact is so pretty and not orange! The quality of the brushes isn't the best but you're not paying a fortune for this set. The glitter eyeshadow has lots of fall out and isn't pigmented enough to wear on its own but layered over the cream shadow looks good.
I was thinking if you were buying this as a gift you could split it up into lots of little gifts if you are on a budget. The individual products would make great little stocking fillers too.
If you are interested in buying this, the link for the Boots website is here and I spotted this YouTube video from their Facebook page. It's worth a little watch as it shows you how the glitter eyeshadow looks over the cream shadow.
Are you tempted to buy this?
