Strictly Come Make-Up!

If you are a fan of BBC1's Dancing Competition Show - Strictly Come Dancing - then you will love this Make-Up range available exclusively at Boots.

I am a huge fan of the show. It cheered me up no end when I had complications during my pregnancy and was housebound, and I even managed to watch it whilst in hospital too! There is nothing like a bit of glamour and glitz to perk you up!

Watching the show you can clearly see the importance of the costumes and the make-up to create high impact drama  - there are lots of different looks for all the different dances that are featured. This range consists of 16 beauty products but I will be focusing on just a few of them.

In the style of Strictly - the packaging is fun, glamorous and sparkly

Strictly Come Dancing Fab-u-lous Lip Collection - £12

I love lip glosses and in this set you get 4 double ended lip glosses meaning you have 8 super glosses!

My favourites are the peach/apricot colour, the deep raspberry colour and the gentle, light shimmers for a pretty pout. They are good quality, the applicator sponges are nice and some of the colours have lovely scents too - I think this is a  great gift!

Strictly Come Dancing Strictly Fab-u-lous Face and Decolette Bronzing Powder - £12

The dancers always have deep tans and you can recreate this with this bronzer - it gives a nice deep colour when swirled around. A clever product that contains - Translucent face powder, blusher and baked bronzer! It also includes a retractable brush. Great value, but I think the packaging looks a bit cheap and there is so much waste of plastic and cardboard unfortunately..

And on to my favourites - the books.

Strictly Come Dancing Stunning Look Book - £10

Containing 3 eye shadows, a blusher, 3 lip glosses, a mirror, and mini brushes - it is a fantastic value gift for a fan to recreate looks from the show. The second page of the book even includes instructions on how to do your eyes. I adore this product, the make-up is really good quality and the colours are fab and fun.

Strictly Come Dancing Latin Look Book - £10

This is my favourite one - Once again it contains 3 eye shadows, a blusher, 3 glosses and mini brushes and mirror in one handy book. The colours are rich and well pigmented. There are instructions on how to get that 'Latin' look on the second page. I just think these books are such good value and am impressed with them.

Here is a look I created from the Latin Book:

And a close up:

This was for daytime but you can obviously vamp it up for night. A very versatile book!

I don't tend to pick up products that are inspired by celebs or tv programmes, but in my opinion these are well worth a look and could make a great choice for Secret Santa's.

All products are available in Boots and on and are part of the Christmas 3 for 2 offer.


  1. These sound great, my mum is a Strictly fan so after reading your great reviews I think Santa will have to get her one!

  2. I am loving the berry colour in the first photo, very impresed! x

  3. i love the look of the lip gloss packaging


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
