Calling all Mums of Teenage Daughters… This One Is Just For You!

on June 10, 2014

I have wanted to do a post on reasonably priced make up for some time now.  There has been an explosion of brands offering  make up collections at a great price.  Ideal for teens just starting to get into make up.

So I was really pleased when I received four exciting palettes to play with from Beauty UK Cosmetics*.  I did manage my expectations however, I don’t expect to get highly pigmented shadows that last the day when I am paying £3.99 to £5.99 for a palette containing 6-10 shadows.

There was no need for managing however.  I was seriously impressed with the colour payoff and longevity of these shadows.  (Check out my looks below to see the shadows in action!)  The acid test for me is would I actually buy these again myself?  The answer here is yes.  I haven’t tried any other products from the range, so can’t comment on the lip, cheek or base products.  But based on my experience with the shadows I will definitely be purchasing some to try them out.

Here are the palette’s I received:

  1. Eyeshadow and Eyeliner Palette in No2 Amazon
  2. Posh Palette No3 Festival
  3. Eyeshadow Palette no1 Pastels
  4. Eyeshadow Palette No5 Twilight

I can tell you now that you will be ‘borrowing’ these palettes from you daughter to do you smoky eye look for a night out…. oh and a pretty, natural day look at the office.  The colours are on trend, come in a mixture of mattes and shimmer textures and are so flattering.

Here are the looks I created.  I particularly love the purple smoky eye using the Twilight palette and the warm day time smoky eye with the warm browns and a hint of cranberry (great for autumn/winter looks).

Definitely check them out and buy them for your daughter (and you!).
