beauty uk reviews

I was sent a great package the other day by Beauty UK which if you didn't know is a cheap make up brand currently selling in Superdrug. I'm just going to start off by reviewing a couple of things today and then do some more reviews of the other things I got sent later on.



Eyeshadow palette in 'Soho bright'

The colours are so colourful and bright in this palette and make me so excited for the summer. The pigmentation of the shadows is excellent but you have got to be a little bit careful as they can be quite powdery and loose. I used two layers of shadow for the swatches so that they stood out even more which I find is the best option. The palette itself is nice and sleek with a thin mirror at the bottom along with a brush but I'm pretty sure nobody uses those anyway. Beauty UK also do the same palettes in different colours which I'd definitely recommend having a look at here as they are only £3.99!


Nail polish in 'Slate'

Next on to the nail polish that I've been wearing all week. It's a stunning mixture of blue and grey which goes perfectly with most outfits. I think the colour is completely unique and suits my olive skin tone really well. The polish applies fairly easily and paired with a top coat has lasted really well. The polishes cost only £2.49 and come in an array of different colours which you can view here.

Have you ever tried Beauty UK products?
