So Miss Fearne Cotton has gone and expanded her empire even further. Not satisfied with a successful television and radio career, taking the piss out of herself weekly on Celebrity Juice (I bloody love that programme,) traveling all over the world with her reality programme ‘Fearne and…’, teaming up with Very to launch her clothing line and even releasing a book with buddy Holly Willow-Booby, she’s now only gone and released a line of makeup.
She’s teamed up with Boots to release a capsule collection of 17 different products, ranging from simple lipglosses and shimmer dusts all the way up to a full on vanity case. Priced £8.00 – £40.00 there’s no doubt something for everyone and every price range. Fearne says: “Creating this range has completed a childhood dream. Make-up has played a big part in my life; from glamming up to gothing up, covering tears and getting ready for a big TV show – I couldn’t live without it. It’s been magical creating my dream line of make-up packaged to include my love of vintage, skulls and tattoos in a delicate way. I hope everyone loves it!”
I do love Fearne… I love her style, attitude, warmth and general sense of fun. (Ok, I basically want to be her) but I’m doubtful about this collection. It looks very nice on www.boots.com but I’ve yet to see it in the flesh or try the quality for myself. What also concerns me is the fact that she’s known for her bright colours, bold eye makeup and boho style – whereas the colours here seem to be very muted and generic. Will you be trotting down to pick yourself up some Fearne makeup? I’m undecided.
