BeautyUK Eyeshadow Palette no.5 - Twilight ~ Review + Swatches

Posted in , , , , ,
Im a sucker for purples, blues and nude colors..this palette looks like the best option for me!
I've heard good stuff about the eyeshadow palettes from beautyuk, keep on reading if you want to know how was this one!

What they Say?

Make a fresh statement everyday with our best selling 10 eye shadow combo palettes - as featured in Vogue.

5 Palettes Available with different colors

What ShyCheeeks Think?

Its a nice compact palette, first impression was pretty good..i love all the colors in this palette!
All the colors have a fine subtle shimmer, not on your face kind of shimmery!
won't bother you with fall offs

The mirror is a thin rectangle, where the brush is..its actually useless
And sadly, the lonely applicator which also is of no use for ShyCheeeks!

Here are the swatches..

Now for a Closer Look..
(All the shadows are heavily swatched with primer on)

The white color is actually more of a shimmer than white..the pigmentation wasn't good either
The purple one also needed a little work to show up better

The Silver'ish grey color and ShyCheeeks had a little fight on the pigmentation..and the color won on being nothing but a can see it for yourself!
The blue on the other hand was better on showing off some pigmentation

The dark grey and purple were nicely pigmented

A cool grey and purple
three purples in the palette more or less look similar

Another similar purple, with a black..the black is also not the blackest black..its more of a smoke color

The Pigmentation was horrible for the lightest shades, but all the others were fine..not the best ones..For the above swatches, i actually had to build-up the color several times to get this intensity!

Overall, the colors look good in the palette..but working with them is a bit hard, the color payoff is alright with the dark shades..but the lighter shades didn't even show up well with a good primer..and other drawback is that some colors are actually dupes of other shades present in the palette, which is sad :(

Its available for 750 PKR from
Which would be a waste of money if you want this, you might want to try something else from :)

ShyCheeeks no Likey!

What do you guys think about it?
Will be waiting for your comments/ questions/ opinions...till then, takecare :)
