The bright lights bold colour trend that was so hot this summer looks set to continue well into winter with the stormy purples and bold blue shades on the catwalks this season. Celebrities like Sophie Ellis-Bextor have been working the look, sporting rainbow-hued eye makeup and look-at-me lashes. While I'm a huge fan of MAC for ultra bold colours, their shadows can be expensive so I was thrilled to learn about the new Front Cover Rainbow Eyes kit from Boots.
Front Cover is a kooky, annual-style set that comprises of 25 eye shadows housed in a retro faux book cover. Usually priced at £30 from this Friday until Thursday 29th October Boots are waking up to the credit crunch and offering it at half price.

The shadows range from wearable taupes and vanillas that are great for using on the brow bone, to smoky greys and navy for a sophisticated take on this season's gothic glam trend. Bright fuschia, turquoise, yellow and sky blue are ideal for creating the bold looks as seen at Gucci.
I was also impressed by the easy step-by-step tuition on the inside front cover of the books. It's a great kit if you want to experiment with your look but aren't sure where to start. The collection also includes two double ended brushes, as well as a miracle solvent that turns eye shadows into eye liners. Savvy shoppers may also want to stock up now as they'd make ideal Christmas gifts for beauty junkies.
