Hi everyone, this blogpost is going to be about Beauty- Uk’s products. They were kind enough to send me some products so I could try them out and tell you all what I think. Don’t be put off by this, all opinions in this post are my own!
First of all I will start of with what they sent me and what they retail at in Superdrug.
I got a Blusher, £2.99
Eyeshadow Palette, £5.99
and a Mascara, £2.49
When I got the package I was very happy as I really liked the way the makeup looked, obviously it’s really important that the products look good as it’s a factor that would stand out to me when buying products in a shop.
I think the packaging is very secure for the price of them and looks like it would last a long time. They were all sealed with a thick tape so people can’t touch them before they are sold which I like as I hate brining home a new product that has been touched!
The blusher is really nice, the one I received is called capital pink and it’s a matte dusky light pink colour. It’s very pigmented so is definitely worth the money you are paying for and comes with a brush, this can be handy but the brush isn’t of the best quality. That didn’t bother me whatsoever as I usually throw away the disposables anyway. I really like the size of the blush as it’s quite big and the perfect size for a large brush. I don’t like it when blushes are small in the pan so this is perfect!
From what I have seen so far it lasts on the skin quite well, Ive noticed that you only need a little or it can look a little overwhelming so be careful when putting it on. If you put small bits at a time on it’s great because the product is build-able.
This palette is very bright, in the palette you get colours and they are of a reasonable size. I like it because you get a range of finishes on the eyeshadows, some are glittery and shimmery and some are completely matte. I think this palette would be great for dramatic and exotic makeup for nights out or shows etc.
The colours are extremely pigmented and have a lot more colour to them than you would expect for such a inexpensive pallet. It’s great coverage and lasts for a long time on the eyes. They blend well together and are very soft.
I got sent 3 eyeliners, 2 pearl colour ones which are liquid colour eyeliners and one standard black liquid eyeliner.
The formula of the black eyeliner is really good, its very pigmented and doesn’t leave patches when one the ye, the only issue I have with it is the applicator. I think the applicator is a little thick for my liking as i like to wear my eyeliner quite thin but by all means if you like a dramatic eye then this would be perfect for you. The packing is quite standard but the handle is quite long. I like this because I find the eyeliner easier to hold when applying the product to my eyes.
I was quite disappointed with these eyeliners, the colour in the bottles are very pretty and definitely pearled with slight shimmer to them but when I used it on my eyes i found they were quite watery and left patches of washy colour, saying that the colours are build able so I used another coat and it seemed fine but i don’t think they are as pigmented as they could be. The packaging is really nice, I think they look really sleek and not cheap at all.
The lipstick is really nice, I find the packaging quite basic and very similar to the MUA ones. The shade i have is called ‘pink my ride’ it’s extremely bright and not something I would wear everyday but I’m glad I received it because it’s quite unusual and not like anything i’ve already got.
When I first put on the lipstick the smell was lovely. It smells very minty which some people may not like but I really liked the smell. I think it also slightly tingled my lips like a plumping lip gloss does which I am really in favour of as I like the sensation it gives. The colour is very pigmented and the lipstick glides straight on the lips. It lasts for quite a long time on the lips and doesn’t smudge even thought the texture is quite glossy. I doesn’t dry my lips out and is very moisturising too!
When I first saw the mascara i will admit it didn’t really look anything special, i thought the colour would be extremely pigmented but it wasn’t at first, when I applied it it looked quite dark on the lashes and almost like a faded black but in different lights you can see the blue, I think this is a really nice effect because it’s not a full on dramatic blue colour, i think it makes my lashes look quite defined and fans them out but does make them quite dry and crispy which I’m not a fan of.
