Beauty UK Eyeshadow Collection No.7 Nakedtorek, november 01, 2016
I haven't that tried much from Beauty UK, I have their contour sticks, I used to own a lipstick and I bought one of their palettes last year called Eden, but I haven't tried any of these mini palettes before. Several versions exists and got the neutral one called Naked which unsurprisingly contains neutral eyeshadows.
Texture: There are ten eyeshadows in the palette and it's a mix of mattes with shimmer/satins. Mattes tend to be chalky and less pigmented, which is the norm for cheap palettes. The shimmer, one however, perform much better and they have a decent pigmentation, still I prefer to use fingers to apply them for maximum pay-off.
Shade 1 - a light grey-slightly green shimmer shade. Pigmentation isn't the best.
Shade 2 - a matte yellow toned skin tone shade. I wanted to use it as a base, but it's too dark for my skin tone. It's chalky, but at light shades like this it doesn't matter.
Shade 3 - a matte light peachy shade. The same quality as the one of the left and it actually looks the same on the lids.
Shade 4 - a light taupe shade. Looked promising to use as a light contour, but it's too light to create a shadow. Quality is the same as the two shades on the left.
Shade 5 - a taupe shade. Swatches a shade darker than the one of the left, but on the eyes looks the same.
Shade 6 - a satin-shimmer violet-brown-taupe shade. Bears a resemblance to Mac's Satin Taupe and it's my favourite in the palette. Pigmentation is nice and it blends well.
Shade 7 - a satin-shimmer old gold-ochre shade. In the same colour family as Mac's Patina, but more yellow toned. Quality is the same as the one on the left.
Shade 8 - a satin-shimmer rust shade. Very red when swatched, so prone to making you look tired unless paired with a lot of eyeliner and mascara. The quality is the same as the two shades on the left
Shade 9 - a matte deep grey/taupe shade. Chalky and not well pigmented.
Shade 10 - a greyer version of the previous shade, but of a better quality. Still it's not the best.
Staying power: These last averagely on the lids, but the good news is that since they are more dry that the rest of the eyeshadows, they don't crease (or at least much). With a primer they last well.
Packaging: The palette is small in plastic, the closing mechanism holds almost too well. It's got a mini mirror where the applicator sits, but it's too small to be of use.
Price and availability: Mine is from Ličila.si where it costs 6.95 €.
