celia-birtwell-makeup-bag.jpgArtist and designer Celia Birtwell has done some wonderful collaborations in recent years, making her iconic and striking style far more affordable for everyday fans. This collection for Boots, however, has got to represent the best value for money I've seen and I particularly like the cosmetic bag (above) which you can buy from the store at £8. It's got all the typical Birtwell trappings of chic, contrasting prints and I love the rose detail zip. There's also a wide range of special edition beauty tools, including a fabulous 'rose' mirror in the same style.

Boots has also brought out some rather fetching full-sized Celia Birtwell tote bags, which you can take away with you if you buy three or more of products from their premium beauty brands, including Chanel, Clarins, Clinique, Dior, Elizabeth Arden, Estée Lauder, Lancôme, Origins and Yves Saint Laurent.
