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?

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

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

    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!

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