Just a quickie to share the new Boots 17 Spring Fling Eye Palettes that showed up today – I don’t think I’ve seen much about these online yet?

Two limited edition eye palettes with super, super pretty styling.  What with it being the weekend and all, I don’t have the release info but I think it’s safe to assume that these will be out very shortly (I can’t see them on the website).  Here’s some photos and swatches taken this afternoon.

Texture-wise, the shadows are very soft and a little crumbly but they blend effortlessly and subsequently afford better pigmentation than most pastels.  The colour combinations are cute… I can see a distinctly traditional fair/olive divide going on!

Any first impressions?

    Oh wow these look gorgeous!x

  4. Anitacska says:

    Wow, gorgeous! Temind me of the Dior spring palettes. I will definitely pick these up, love 17 eyeshadows. :)

  5. Bee says:

    Those are nice, they remind me of the Paul & Joe cat design powders for eyes/face I’m currently getting overexcited about (Kittycat is out of stock – noo!). Because I’m crazy about these crazy cat powders I’d like to see a third colourway in the 17 ones with more mauve in it. Still, I like these 17 kits generally, LOVED the nude one a while back.

    these looks so pretty, but I would be worried about messing up the pattern!

    These type of palates look so pretty but in my experience they quickly turn into a big mess.

  8. Mercedes says:

    It looks super pretty. I guess you would need small brushes to pick the colours individually.
    Lovely swatches- thanks! :) X

  9. gio says:

    These are gorgeous, but I wouldn’t have the heart to use them! :)

  10. Summer says:

    These look so, so pretty x

  11. Hannah says:

    They look really pretty, especially the one with the greens in. They do look like they might be a little awkward to get your brush in, like last years offerings though. Will have to keep my eye out for one/both!

  12. How cute! I don’t like eyeshadow palettes that are like this though.

  13. Saara says:

    Pretty packaging!I just saw your piece for the urban retreat and I’m so intrigued as to what you bought from Korea- I love Asian products, so I’m hoping for a post on it soon!!!

  14. Bee says:

    They look fabulous! can’t wait to try them.

  15. Rae says:

    Oh, these are so cute! A little kitschy, imo, but not terribly so. Hope they make their way over to Canada sometime ;o)

  16. Amy says:

    Lovely! And I’m such a lemming for bronze eye shadow, I’m not sure which one to pick!

  17. Vonvon says:

    How much does one of these cost?

    They are really cute! Might just get both if I see them!
