Beautyuk goodies

Beautyuk is a drugstore brand in the UK usually retailing at Superdrug. It has a decent range of cheap and cheerful everyday products but somehow it has a perception of being associated with teenagers due to the bright colours it incorporates in it's range, namely in its eyeshadow palettes.

I personally love them! I have tried one when it was first introduced and loved the bright colours. Considering their colourful eye shadow palette, I think it is good value for money especially if you don't want to invest a lot in colours you will not wear everyday.

Anyhow, my rambling aside, I have two pretty neutral and everyday wearable products from the brand namely a Pearl Eyeliner in Eclipse(£3.49) and a Lip Lust in Playboy(£2.99). These are some of its newly released products and I can definitely see an improvement in packaging in quality as compared to its previous products.

 

The Eyeliner in Eclipse is a deep blue shade with a pearl finish to it. I was skeptical it would be too thin in consistency but surprisingly it is just perfect. It dries quickly too so I did not have any problems with it transferring on my eye lids. 

A blue shade of eyeliner will always bring out the white in your eyes more making them appear brighter. Hence I like using this instead of the boring browns and blacks. The brush it comes with is a regular sponge tip applicator but due to it being a bit stiffer, it does not absorb a lot of product, letting you work with the amount you require.


The Lip Lust in Playboy is a gorgeous barbie pink colour, almost of a candy floss colour. The shade is similar to the Viva Glam Gaga gloss by MAC in my opinion, minus the extreme milkiness and the lavender tint to it, making it easier to wear.

First of all, the sponge tip applicator is awesome as it actually helps applying the gloss evenly. Secondly, the gloss is pretty pigmented for the price! Can you tell by the swatch? It is not sticky at all and sits comfortably on the lips for a few hours.

This comes in some stunning colours so definitely check it out!


On the whole, don't be fooled by its price tag and give the products a try will ya? Here's a little shot of me wearing both the products. Apologies for the bad picture quality but my camera broke down for a bit and this is thanks to HTC. 


Below are some of their products that caught my eye and I am planning to pick some up for sure, as for under a fiver they won't hurt the wallet for sure eh?

I'm soo chuffed these products (and their ingredients) aren't tested on animals, and the fact they're uber cheap means I'm gonna end up buying them all!!!
