Front Cover Eye Kit half price at Boots

There’s a new brand called Front Cover at boots – their £30 eye palette is half price this week at £15:

It looks pretty dapper but I despise cardboard cases, especially bulky boxy ones *shudders*. It gets chewed by the kitties, it isn’t resistant to water, it’s bulky, it’s ugly – NO. For that reason I won’t be buying this but it’s a nice looking kit – never tried the eyeshadows so can’t vouch for the quality though. If its a boots own brand, which they quite often are then I’d run for the hills.

    Me and my friend just talked about this palette, it looks interesting because you can make it liquid shadow/ dry I’m not sure if I’m right, but you are right about the packaging though

    Hey NikkI!

    Well I reckon with any good quality shadow you can convert it into a liquid shadow. Just a bit of water or drop of glycerin will do it I don’t think you need a special kit 😉

    i have this kit and i can say it’s pretty good :-) the colours look ace, the bright ones stay bright on your eyes and the metalics are great. they last all day/night without creasing.
    yes i agree the packaging is pretty naf, and it’s not something you can cart around with you, but the contents are fab :-)

    Hi Kimmi

    Yeah I went in to have a play and it is a lovely kit and definately recommended for people who are newer to make up. I have loads of make up and limited space so I hate anything that takes up too much space for no reason :/ Also I think you can take the shadows out and stick them into a smaller palette so they are transportable too!

    This eyeshadow set I have to say is the best around. I have always used Estee Lauder and MAC cosmectics and I have to say I prefer this one. I dont go for it because of the price because some one bought it me for Christmas, its a quality set. Definitely recommend.

    Dont judge a book by its (cardboard) cover 😉

    hey Rebecca

    I agree the shadows are good and especially if you don’t have much make up this palette will cover a lot of what you need. I still hate the packaging though! I hate how huge it is and anything made of cardboard is always chewed to death by kitties!

    I’d love this but in a plastic, transportable palette.

    I really, REALLY, want this eyecolor set!!!! Is there any place I can buy this now or does anyone know where can I buy it online? I live in the US so that might pose a problem too.
