Painted Lady Launch

On Tuesday Umberto Giannini launched their new makeup line - Painted Lady. I met up with Sophie Is Made Up and A Little Obsessed beforehand and then we were on our way to Home House on Portman Square to view the collection on offer.

As soon as you entered the Georgian town house you were greeted with the old, regal decor. The launch took place in the Asylum room and suited the Painted Lady's sleek & sophisticated theme perfectly. Katie, a lovely lady from the PR team, showed me around and talked me through all the products. The first image you see below is of the Painted Lady Palette which has 4 lip colours and 8 eyeshadows (£10). Next to it is the Glamourising Beauty Essentials kit, complete with the Feliner liquid eyeliner pen (also £10).

One of the kits I most loved the most was the LE Fashion Loving Hair & Makeup Kit. The front of the tin looks absolutely stunning - The design team did a fantastic job (sadly I couldn't capture how amazing this is). The contents are great too - Along with some of the UG styling products there are some flutter false eyelashes, a tail comb, the Feliner eyeliner, eyeshadow duo, navy blue nail varnish and stick-on lace nail wraps! This set will cost £30.

There will also be the Party Loving Hair & Makeup Kit, £25. This contains some full-size UG products as well as the eyeshadow duo, feliner pen and the navy blue nail polish. They will come in a massive travel bag, which is pretty useful for holding your toiletries etc. to take with you on
any holidays!

We also saw celebrity makeup artisit Paul Gooch (right) and Yogi from UG's Selfridges Birmingham salon (left) working their magic on transforming a beautiful model into The Painted Lady! At the end we got given a bag, which included the palette and the eyeshadow duo - I shall try and do a FOTD with it sometime soon. The range will be released at the end of August in Boots stores :)
