Today I’d like to present you all six of the Beauty UK palettes. First I’d like to tell you that at first I was really sceptical about them. I know almost everyone is raving about them, but you know what? In general people love cheap stuff. I mean, I do too. But still. Too often people are too forgiving to cheap stuff. And that’s why I was really sceptical, that I would like these palettes. Man was I surprised. These actually are good palettes. I mean not all the eyeshadows are great, but still … for the money, these in general are good palettes. Please read on for more in depth review.

Here is a group photo of all the palettes.

Price in the UK: £3.99
Weight: 10g

A short explanation to the photos below. I assigned a label to every single eyeshadow. The labels are how I would consider that specific eyeshadow.

  • “very good” – the eyeshadow is easy to apply and is very well pigmented
  • “good” – the pigmentation is good but you might to rub it a bit to get the best out of it
  • “not good” – either the application is patchy or the eyeshadows itself is very hard and because of the that it’s harder to apply

No.1 Pastels
If you like pastels this is a good palette. I like that there’s also some darker shades. That way the palette is more useful.

No.2 Soho Bright
Although I thought I would love this palette because of all the bright colors, it turned out to be my least favourite. Why? Because of the quality. In this palette there are just too many eyeshadows that aren’t very good (or even decent) quality.

No.3 Glitz
The Glitz palette surprised me. I thought that I wouldn’t like it because of the silver particles in it, but these particles are incorporated in the palette well, so there’s not a lot of fall out. There’s still some fall out but it’s within normal limits (whatever that means :D).

No. 4 Earth Child
Earth Child is probably the most useful palette and I’d say it’s a must have. It’s a good everyday palette.

No. 5 Twilight
Twilight is a palette for all the purple and blue lovers. I think it’s a good alternative to Sleek’s Bad Girl palette.

No. 6 Day & Night
I think this is a weird palette. The mixture of colors is just odd. Yes, you can create many different looks with it, but still … Funny palette if you ask me. The quality of the eyeshadows in this palette is very good, so it’s a good quality palette with a weird selection of colors.

The packaging is simple. Nothing fancy. The palettes aren’t heavy. They are very handy. I think they are great when you travel etc. All in all good palettes for a good price.

To finish the review I have a simple, fresh and colorful make up look, I made with the Beauty UK eyeshadow palette No.1 (Pastels) and Illamasqua’s blush in Hussy (on cheeks and eyes) and Illamasqua’s lipstick in Scandal (with clear lip gloss over it).

  1. Great review! They look so beautiful and I would have expected that neon palette to be one of the best too. Does the packaging say the ingredients on them?

  2. Thank you Amy! :rose:
    These are the only BUK palettes I have so far. BUK Naked palette looks nice. Maybe I’ll buy it. If I do, I’ll write a review. ;)

  3. I love your review, it’s so detailed!! anyway they have a new palette called naked, have you tried it? If yes could you do a review

  4. Great review, thanks so much! I was looking at getting some colours to play around with and thought of the BeautyUK palettes, but reading your post really helped me decide! I bought Day and Night and also Soho Bright. It’s true that some colours aren’t the best quality but I still think it’s really pretty and very handy for having all your colours in one place! :)

  5. Earth Child se mi še najbolj dopade, samo se zdaj trudim omejit nakupovanje senčil … in nasploh kozmetičnih izdelkov, čeprav pri lakih velikorat padem. :blush:

  6. The last 3 palettes are my favorite ones, but I like the last one the most :) I love the color selection – true, it’s odd but I think it’s a great one! :)

  7. Super MU :thumb: .
    Mene mika Night & Day vendar pa se malo bojim da bo na meni (tako kot večina teh palet) vse skupaj bolj neobstojno (kljub primerjem)…

  8. Kakšen svež mu! všeč mi je. jaz imam tudi earth child paletko, zelo me mika tudi amazon paletka, tista z dvema eye linerjema. (swatchek prosim? :sorry: )

  9. Hvala za tale review. Sem že razmišljala, da bi naročila Earth Child paletko in po tvoji oceni jo zagotovo tudi bom. :yes:

  10. Ooo super zadeva. Ce bi ne ze imela dovolj paletk, bi sla takoj v nabavo. Mi izgledajo super pa tudi berejo se krasno.

    Aja si napisala dvakrat, da si uporabila blusher Hussy :).
    :wub:

    • Mene so res pozitivno presenetile te palete.
      Za Hussy pa je sicer malo čudno napisano, a sem želela poudariti, da sem ga uporabila na očeh in na licih. Zato je 2x napisan. Hvala za opozorilo. Bom razmislila, ali preuredim stavek, da bo bolj razumljivo. ;)
