One of the things that immediately appealed to me was the packaging- the black lace on pale pink background makes it look sexy without being tacky. I really like the style of the lettering on the package, and the name is quite amusing:
The wand is very comfortable to handle, and the brush is the right size for me- not too big not too small. The long bristles are stiff enough to rake through my lashes and give good definition, without being so sharp and hard as to poke me in the eye (happened a few times with other mascaras):
As a reference, my lashes au naturelle:
As for the palette- its very sturdy and has a good size mirror, which is very handy. The packaging is the same as with mascara and looks very nice:
It contains four smooth eyeshadows in neutral tones- light, sandy highlighter, two brown colours flecked with gold, and a charcoal crease colour:
All colours, except charcoal have a lot of shimmer in them, and even charcoal has a slight glow to it. All four shades are easy to apply, though there is some fallout.The tester palettes in Boots have all been smashed to smithereens, so I expect these eyeshadows to be fragile. I haven't really tested them for longevity, so can't comment on that.
Although I don't really do neutrals, I really like this palette- its nice for a quick and easy neutral eye look, but would also do a great a soft, smokey eye. The shades are easy to apply and blend and this palette is a very decent gift-with-purchase. Its not available separately and is not a part of permanent line (which is a shame, to me)
Another point I like to note- Boots have finally started to use shrinkwrap to package their products, so that they can't be opened by someone in the shop and used (my pet hate)
