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:
- Eyeshadow and Eyeliner Palette in No2 Amazon
- Posh Palette No3 Festival
- Eyeshadow Palette no1 Pastels
- 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!). www.beautyukcosmetics.com
