Review: Beauty UK 'Earth Child' Eye Shadow Palette

After having a quick play around with the contents of this month's Love Me Beauty box I said the Beauty UK Eye Shadow palette in 'Earth Child'* was my favourite out of all 5 products. Just look at how pigmented it is on my finger tips, the quality felt great. Well, I take it back. Yes the shadows are pigmented when you swipe your fingers across them but sadly it doesn't translate that way once you try to apply. The swatches on the back of my hand in the photos above were built up a good few times each which I don't mind but every shade apart from the third on the top row (my fave) started to crumble and go patchy. Tried all the colours out on my lids too, the two green shades barely showed up and the fall out was terrible. I think my best bet with this palette is to use some of the darker more pigmented shades along my lower lash line.

So disappointed, thought I'd found a great budget neutral palette but sadly not.

Have you tried this palette or any other products from Beauty UK?
What's your fave purse friendly neutral palette?

  3. I think MUA do the best budget palettes. I bought a Collection one a few months ago and the pigmentation wasn't great either xx

  9. Hello! I would like to open cosmetology salon. Do you have an experience in this business? There are too many options in beauty salon equipment. Could you give me an advise? What companies are more reliable to buy body cavitation machine and rf face lift machine?
