We love a woman with a strong signature style, and thanks to her impossibly glossy fringe (seriously, how is it to shiny?) and distinctive smudge of kohl liner, Claudia Winkleman certainly has one.
Whilst the Strictly presenter’s eyeliner might have the power to divide a room (some say too much, some say just right) it’s Claudia that’s having the last word, launching a beauty brand with Boots called Full Panda - no doubt in homage to her so-called ‘panda eyes’.
Centred around party-season gifting, the range itself is as playful as its name – packed with double-duty products that are fuss-free to use. ‘Forget complicated applicators and tools – these products are seriously easy to apply,’ explains Claudia.
Whether you’re buying a present for your teenage niece or treating yourself to some party season make-up, there’s something for beauty pros and novices alike.
Our favourites from the range include...
Add To Basket Eyeshadow
It was the Add To Basket Eyeshadow Trio, £10, that first caught my eye when scrolling through the range. A gorgeous collection of smudgy eyeshadow crayons in muted metallic shades, these were designed to be blended messily with your fingers instead of precisely applied with a brush, giving exactly the sort of slightly ‘un-done’ look Claudia loves.
Double Ended Lipstick
The Double Ended Lipstick, £6, is the ultimate ‘desk-to-bar’ lippie, giving you the option to go under the radar in a nice neutral nude for day, and all out glamour with pillar box red for evening.
Must Have Kit
Not forgetting the Must Have Kit, which would make a gorgeous gift. Containing a primer, bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner and mascara, it’s got pretty much everything you need to create the building-blocks of your make-up kit. It’s also, incidentally, all you need to perk up frazzled skin the morning after one too many mulled wines.
Get your paws on the 9-piece collection online at Boots.com or in selected stores from 4th November.
