I really do like the look of the new make up range from Umberto Giannini with a few provisos. There is only one stand-alone product; the Painted Lady Palette, £10, otherwise you have to buy into a whole kit that includes both hair products and cosmetics. I’m a bit baffled by this because the graphics and packaging are so amazing and beautiful that I think the single shadows or nail polishes etc would do really well as stand alones. I know I’d find them hard to resist. Not sure I’m up for spending £25 on a kit to get my hands on the eyeshadow! However, that’s for them to work out I guess. In the meantime, the range is glossy looking and stylish: the cosmetics have been styled by make up artist Paul Gooch who has a BAFTA for his work on Alice In Wonderland and over 300 film and TV productions behind him.
