Boots summer launch

Summer of Dreams collection

Last week was a busy one in terms of launches and meetings - as I don't live in London I try to schedule as much as I can into each trip to the capital (train fares are not cheap). It makes for an exhausting day out and sometimes I do wonder why I bother, but I'm happy to report that this time the experience was worthwhile and interesting.

First off was the Boots summer launch event. This took place in a weird and wonderful section of the Barbican I didn't know existed; it was a sort of hothouse aviary, full of plants (presumably tropical), birds, fish and terrapins.

The Boots guys had laid out a trail taking guests through the various products, from children's clothes to sunglasses to pharmacy products to beauty - the bit I was most interested in seeing. And I wasn't disappointed. Boots No 7 has a new collection of make-up in pretty pastel shades and lovely packaging, including eye crayons, blushers (bronze and pinky shades),  and lip glosses. There's also a new mascara out in June I believe and two nail varnishes - one with gold glitter and one with silver glitter - both would look great with a tan on holiday.

Celebrity make-up artist and No7 ambassador Lisa Eldridge was there and it was great talking to her about the products and trends for this summer. I took a couple of photos, one of which is just about good enough to show here. The others are supplied by Boots.

Great over nail colour but I prefer it on its own
