Boots 17: New eyeshadow swatches

I’m afraid this is going to be only a semi-helpful review as it’s a collection of swatches from the Boots 17 collections new eye shadows. But they don’t have names on them (or codes) so I can’t share exactly which they are. I will double check next time I’m in Boots and update then… but for now they are nameless (or will go by a description)

Top left – right ‘pinky gold’ and ‘pewter’
Bottom left – right ‘champagne gold’ and ‘purple’

Also, one of them (as you can see) is broken – it arrived like that, but is still swatch-able so that won’t put me off!

L-R pinky gold, pewter, champagne gold, purple.

So here we have ‘pinky gold’, ‘pewter’, ‘champagne gold’ and ‘purple’ – as I have so named them.

I love all the shimmers, I have a preference for shimmers generally… all very smooth, pigmented and generally lovely. No glitter to be seen here, so happy days. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I pretty much always find matte shades to be a let down? Might just be my personal preference though.

Anyway, what do you think of these shades? If you could choose one of the four.. which would you go for?

I may not know the names, but I do know the price. The single eye shadows are £1.75 £3.49 each from Boots (some Boots single eye shadows are the lower price on the website)

    Oh, they look absolutely lovely! I agree – shimmery shadows are much easier to work with.

    The pinky gold one is ‘rose quartz’, champange gold is ‘gold emerald’ and I think pewter is ‘midnight pearl’. Not too sure about the purple one though!

    My Rose Quartz is broken as well and I’m pretty sure I got the only in the shop that wasn’t in pieces at the time 🙁
