New Haven Advocate: Make-Up Test
Boots make-up is a kick in the head for fashionistas

A review of Boots No 7 and Botanics makeup lines, which are being introduced into the U.S. through select CVS and Target stores.

Writer Jackie Senno asks, "What's best about Boots?" If I were to answer that question, I'd say this statement from their brochure on No 7:

"We all know that beauty is more than skin deep - but for women, it's one of life's pleasures, a chance for a moment of 'me-time'"

which is a very nice summation of the appeal of cosmetics for me and for many others.
