NEW Beauty UK Posh Palettes in Maquerade, Eden and Festival | Review and Swatches

12/09/2013Shen




If you haven't heard about Beauty UK cosmetics, then let introduce them to you. :)

It's a brand from, yes, United Kingdom. It's one of their more affordable makeup lines. It has several selctions from it and they have recently revamped it to a more colorful, makeup maven-worthy packaging. Quality is equal to its pricing. Reminds me a lot of Sleek and NYX Cosmetics.

What I have here is their NEW Posh Palettes that was sent by Makeupholics, one of the most reliable online sellers in the country. They carry the full line of Beauty UK cosmetics.

On to these palettes, the first impression was immediately a good one. The white packaging gave it a truly posh feel. It's got quite a weight on it so it doesn't feel cheap compared to other cosmetics. I love the minimalist look, really. As much as I love quirky wispy designs on my makeup, clean ones with clear names on them impresses me more.

I feel so loved getting all the sets of the Posh Palettes. If you are a newbie and immediately want all the colors in your stash, collecting these three should suffice to help you practice all kinds of makeup looks. From neutrals, smokey to avant garde.

The quality reminds me of NYX eyeshadows. The size of the pans is same as NYX trio shadows. The slip is the same. Pigmentation spans from great to so-so depending on what eyeshadow you're using. You can check out my swatches below. Staying power is good as long as you use an eye shadow primer if you have oily skin.

Overall, I like these. I've learned through out the years that affordable palettes like Beauty UK have a fight in them if you're in it to have fun and open to working with it. :)


Beauty UK Posh Palette in Masquerade is a smokey palette that provides a huge range complimentary color for all sorts of skin tones. I am in love with this palette! The black on the lower portion is so pigmented, it rivals even my MAC Carbon. I love that it's not just blacks and grays but has browns, bronzes and a beige for those with golden skin. 

The shadows with shimmers aren't that overwhelming either. The glaze is just enough to catch the light but without overpowering your look or making you look like a disco ball. The slip is nice and it attaches quite well on the skin.

Beauty UK Posh Palette in Eden is worthy of its name. It's a mix of beautiful neutrals to create the best no-makeup makeup look and at the same time achieve a classic makeup look. Although I hope there'd be at least one matte deep brown shadow for deepening the crease. The palette, I also think has more shadows shimmers and satins than mattes. This reminds so much of Urban Decay Naked 1 palette.




Beauty UK Posh Palette in Festival is certainly the most colorful out the three in this collection that reminded me so much of my gradeschool watercolor palette. :) It's such a beautiful, striking palette and it's amazingly put together. Minus for the red shadow, you've got everything you'll ever want for a colorful palette in this one. As expected though, pigmentation needs to be worked on. I suggest using a cream base or a primer to see the vibrancy off these shadows. Although, I'm certain that you'll be able to create hundreds of makeup look using this palette.

Can't wait to create creative makeup looks with this. :)



If you're looking for a great gift, these palettes can be it. :) Aside from the good quality, it's only Php450 for each palette. It's easily a bang for your buck. :) And one that could certainly put a smile on the face of the person you're giving it to. But knowing you, my dear readers, you'd probably get one for yourselves. Ain't that right? :)

I also commend Makeupholics for their great service. Their response rate is faster and they ship almost immediately from payment.

Soon, I will be posting makeup looks using these palettes. :)

Happy week ahead!
