Best Of The Brand: Beauty UK!

Saturday, 27 September 2014

Today's instalment of Best Of The Brand features Beauty UK. Beauty UK were actually one of the first brands I ever tried when I first got into make-up, so you can imagine how excited I was when Beauty UK sent me out some of their new products to try! The Best Of The Brand series on my blog is definitely my most popular, so make sure to let me know what brands you'd like to see featured next. Now onto the best of Beauty UK:

5. Beauty UK Prime FX Foundation Primer, £3.99
I absolutely love trying primers, as I think they're so important for keeping your make-up flawless all day. The Prime FX primer claims to be silky-smooth and reduce oiliness.
The texture of the primer reminds me a lot of the Benefit Porefessional - it's very velvety, and feels so soft on your skin. It provides a perfect base to apply foundation over, and it really does enhance the longevity of your foundation. The thing that drew me to this primer was the claim of an oil-reducing formula, as someone with incredibly oily skin I need all the oil reducing I can get! It definitely stays true to that promise, as I never find myself touching up my foundation when wearing this primer underneath. I'm so in love with this primer, as it's so inexpensive and the quality is actually better than some high-end primers I've tried!The packaging also looks very sleek and expensive, and it's a handy 20ml bottle that fits nice and snug into any little make-up bag or clutch.
 Definitely recommend checking this out.

4. Beauty UK Glacier Gloss, £2.99
This is my go-to lipgloss! I have the shade 'I Like To Mauve It, Mauve It', which is more of a blush pink than a mauve in my opinion. I love how pigmented it is - it's sheer enough to wear a lipstick under it, but it's opaque enough to wear it on its own, so it's all about how you prefer to wear it. I personally love to wear it with Miner's Cosmetics Strawberry Tin'O'Tint underneath. The longevity of this gloss is fantastic - it wears for about five hours before needing to be touched up, even if you've eaten it stays put! It smells so lovely too - it has a nice light toffee scent. The packaging reminds me of the Tanya Burr lipglosses - it's sleek and the perfect size to throw in your handbag, or even in your pocket.

Top - I Like To Mauve It, Mauve It Gloss. Bottom - Popsicle Pink

3. Beauty UK Baked Blusher Box, £3.99
I actually prefer baked blushes as I love the natural looking flush they give to the skin. This stunning blush is called Popsicle Pink, and it's a beautiful pale, frosty pink with lots of shimmer in it. I think it's ideal for paler skinned girls like myself, as the pigmentation is just perfect.
I love the packaging of it too - the box reminds me slightly of the Benefit boxed blushes (just without the crazy price-tag!) and the handy little mirror inside is ideal for on-the-go touch-ups.
I also love the domed product, as it just makes it easier to put your brush in as well, and you usually tend to get more product when the powder is domed. The colour is very similar to Dainty by MAC, which is my all-time favourite blush. This is my favourite blush of the moment - I couldn't recommend it more! If the colour isn't
your type, I would recommend trying some of the darker shades as there are four to choose from.

2. Beauty UK Eye Prime FX Eyeshadow Primer, £3.99
My favourite primer is constantly changing, as I try so many. The last few months I have been loving the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but it's quite pricey. However it is rare to find an amazing, long-lasting primer on the market that won't break the bank.
Everything about Eye Primer FX is identical to the Primer Potion, except the price! This product is amazing, it's a tinted formula that provides a neutral base for your eyeshadows. It's much more convenient than the Urban Decay Primer Potion in my opinion, as it comes with a doe-foot applicator which means that there is no wasted product, as opposed to the squeezy Primer Potion tube. It keeps my eyeshadow looking vibrant from morning to night, so I would definitely recommend checking this little guy out if you're on the market for a new primer!

1. Beauty UK Posh Palette, £5.99
This is quite possibly the most stunning eyeshadow palette I own! (This is quite a statement coming from a girl with about 40 eyeshadow palettes!) Unfortunately the camera does not do this palette justice, so I will definitely be showing you an eye look using it soon! Beauty UK have four eyeshadow palettes to choose from, this is the Masquerade one. I think it's the perfect palette for the Autumn/Winter time as the colours are so rich and deep. It's an incredibly versatile palette that you can transition from day to night so easily. My favourite shades are the glittery champagne-pink colour on the top left, and the burgundy, which is second on the bottom.
I really can't fault this product at all - the pigmentation is absolutely incredible, the packaging is both compact and sturdy, and the price is crazily cheap for the quality. Here are some swatches, and keep your eyes peeled for my eyes of the day with this palette very soon!

So they are my top 5 products from Beauty UK! You can find Beauty UK online at or on Twitter @BeautyUKTweets.
