Frontcover _ Tartans, Plaids And Tweeds Eyeshadow Book

hi everyone
I'm here with my another eye shadow review.
Today i'm gonna talk about a London based brand called "Frontcover". Frontcover takes catwalk trends and turns them into ready to wear make up collections.

Some Intro From Frontcover's Page

We are obsessed with the idea that each kit should contain everything you need to get the latest look in one photographic box complete with step by step instructions from resident make-up artist Leanne Shaw. Our ethical approach means that we only ever use what is in the box to get the look on the cover. We are passionate about our premium quality formulations too which are intensely pigmented with fantastic pay off and staying power and are excellent value for money…we believe that great make up doesn’t have to break the bank. Above all we are building Frontcover around what our customers tell us they want and regularly feature their feedback and comments on our products. Frontcover is a small company with great big colorful ideas!


So this is how it looks when you open the book. All the items in the book are secured by a plastic cover that's why all the colors are damage free and all the items remains in place.

This Book Includes

This book is a collection of beautiful iridescent shades which are inspired by huge tartan trend at channel this season. It has some wonderful shades like hazy purple, burnished gold shades and forest green. You can imprint these shades one over the other to create a pattern of high fashion fabric look.

  • 1 Double Ended Brush
  • 1 Old Gold Intense Metallic Eye Shadow Pigment
  • 1 instruction Booklet for different looks

Baked Eye Shadow

Baked eye shadows are different from Pressed powder eye shadows in respect of their great color payoff if used with wet brush. These eye shades are water activated and gives a dramatic look when applied wet. They give chrome finish after applying with water but if you want sheer look than you can apply them dry. These kind of shades doesn't have chemical binders so they are more easy to apply and less likely to crease.

Satin Pressed Powder Eye Shadows

Powder shadows are the most common type of shades available by far. We usually need a good primer or eye base to help pressed shadow stick for long.

Kohl Pencil and Smudger With Double Ended Brush

Brush quality is very good with very soft bristles. They are perfect for blending and for water line too
The kohl pencil is jet black and very smooth in applying. I smudge it with the provided smudger and looks great.

New Old Gold Iridescent Shadow Pigment

This is a intense metallic powder in old gold and can be use as a top coat to other base colors or simply dust lightly onto temples and above cheekbones to add a warm glow to complexion.

Instruction Booklet

This books tell you how to achieve certain looks. It has multi language instruction page but you will find English one at cover.


As i mentioned earlier baked eyeshadows are supposed to be used with wet brush. So you can see in my swatch how they look like when used without water. Very low color payoff

On the other hand if you use them for how they are supposed to be used than you can see clearly a vibrant and metallic shade. Though these shades are metallic with a bit of shimmer but still it will look very soft as this palette is a combination of cool winter shades.

My Experience With The Product

This is the only iridescent palette i have and i'm loving it. These are the color choices which i always wanted in my metallic shadow palette. The color payoff is very good and stays long enough.
Kohl pencil provided is smudge free and it stays for long.
