BeautyUK - New Additions
Now some offerings from a UK brand and can i say very affordable too, so I'm really excited to trial these amazing products they kindly sent for my review and new additions to there collection.

A beautyuk woman makes her own statement.
How very true indeed, i do like to make my own statement and i will so a toast to a very positive and true outlook. However they also add the bonus of being so affordable that creating a catwalk look wont cost the earth. So the new products to try are -
Matte-FX Foundation in shade 02 natural
So a very thick consistency which with a little body heat it then becomes very workable and you do not need much product at all on my original swatching. Plus i will be doing a whole look as i do with these products. Now for a £2.99 retail foundation that claims to give up to 12 hours matte effect finish I'm impressed and it may not live up to the time of lasting wear but the fact this feels like a medium to build-able full coverage foundation. It looked like that on my hand and covered some red areas etc so may even be a good travel foundation if it offers that coverage and saves in using a concealer.
Blush and brush in - Capital pink and Rustic peach
Now these of the collection are the products i wanted to trial most along with the baked blushes and eye products as i was intrigued. Again retailing for £2.99 each, with 5 in the collection - 4 contain a subtle shimmer and 1 contains a matte finish. Which they say is build able. Now i can with open heart say you will not need to build these, the swatch i took was a light rub of my finger like all swatches i do for all my products. These are highly pigmented and soft as any high end blush i own. They blend to the skin well and offer amazing colour payoff for this price. The quality is there with these and with 5 to collect i will be making my order for the others as the Vivid capital pink is beautiful to offer a pure sweep of colour to the cheek and again the Rustic peach is a beautiful light coral for summer. I would even use these on my eyes if i needed pinks like these.
They are so versatile that i would even go to say you could use the rustic peach as a lighter bronze for paler skin tones. Im amazed and really am excited to now see what the other baked box blushes offer also the bronzers.
Jumbo Eyeliner and Eyeshadow in Turquoise
So this is one of the eye products and a duel ended product, i don't tend to gravitate towards these as the colour is usually good one side or they are really hard pencils.
Again I'm shocked to say these are amazingly soft and the colour again stunning, pigmented with a really unique bold offering here. They don't drag and are soft buttery consistency. I will again be getting more of these to use and the twist up variety to do more blogs on as for a brand so affordable I'm stunned. This pencil retails for £2.99 and 4 colours. My only wish is there was more colours but i will be getting the black and white to use the white as a Milk (NYX) alternative. The black eyeliner part again doesn't drag and the pencil is of a good size that you can have maximum control on handling this to use.
Eyeshadow Palette in Glitz
So this i think is part of the collection already and not a new release, so always dubious with eyeshadow as i love payoff and pigment, chalkiness and some fallout i can live with. These shadows are shimmered so i imagined there will be glitter fallout. Now it retails for £3.99 and these palettes it says have featured in vogue with 7 palettes available.
So the Swatches
Now all the colours bar the bottom 2 in the right were fantastic colour payoff and pigment, plus the olive green took some coats but i may try this with a damp brush when i try it in a look. So they are buttery and soft to the touch with the only colour giving a hint of a bit of chalky in pan was the bronze but it was minimum. So these are fantastic when you see the colour and the pan its from. The emerald green is really stunning and great spring/summer palette.
Overall im so stunned that i really do think i may invest in the rest of the collection to trial for you as its so affordable that if it offers this much quality i will be interested to see the formulations of the other new offerings.
So i will be doing looks all weekend and will do them by brand on sunday so i will link that post to here but check the range in superdrug if you happen to be out and about at the weekend.
