Swatches: Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadows

I promised you make up looks with Beauty UK Metallic Sparks yesterday and I'm sure this is not what you expected. =) I'm sorry this is such a massive post, but I thought it would be better to post them all together. These are the Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadows!

''Slow baked powders refined into a pressed trio of shimmering shades. Sheer in texture yet buildable with each sweep of the brush. Colour intensifies to create a veil of luminous hues on the eyes. Choose from 6 nature inspired colour combinations.'' (Beauty UK)


Let's start with Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow trio in Beach.

Beach consists of golden, dark brown and bronze shade. They're much prettier in real life and it's very hard to capture them on camera due to their shimmer.

Here's a make up look I did using:
* Beauty UK Metallic Eye Sparks in Gold (as an eyeshadow base)
* Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow in Beach
* Essence Black Mania Eye Pencil
* Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara


Let's continue with Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow trio in Earth.

Earth consists of silvery shimmer, dark brown and champagne shade.

Here's a make up look I did using:
* Beauty UK Metallic Eye Sparks in Bronze (as an eyeshadow base)
* Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow in Earth
* Essence Black Mania Eye Pencil
* Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara


This is Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow trio in Meadow.

Meadow consists of silver, dark green (with golden highlights) and light green shade.

* Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow in Meadow
* Essence Black Mania Eye Liner
* NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
* Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara


Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow trio in Midnight is one of my favorites.

Midnight consists of silver (white-ish), black and grey shade. They're all very shiny and quite pigmented.

Here's a make up look I did using:
* Beauty UK Metallic Eye Sparks in Grey (as an eyeshadow base)

And last (but certainly not least) Beauty UK Baked Eye Shadow in Wave.

***
About Metallic Eye Sparks: They make a great eyeshadow base (not as an eyeshadow primer though). They're pigmented, soft and very easy to apply (easier than NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils). I've had some troubles blending them with my fingers since most of the color decided to stick to my finger rather than my lid. Later I used a flat concealer brush to blend it a little and it worked way better than blending with my fingers. I wouldn't know about the creasing, but I wouldn't recommend them if your eyelids are very oily. Maybe it would work over eyeshadow primer. My favorite colors are: Bronze, Grey and Purple. Green is also very nice to work with, but I've had some troubles with blue and yellow is simply not my color.

About Baked Eye Shadows: These eye shadow trios are alike, but also quite different. Some of them are more pigmented than the others and that's why I have my favorites and my not-so-favorite shades. The ones I liked the most are Midnight and Wave trio. They're easy to work with and have a good color payoff. I was most disappointed by Sunrise and Meadow, since they're the hardest and least pigmented. The other shades are OK, but a bit too hard for my taste. I really wish they were softer.

*The products were sent to me by Ličila.si.

  2. Tudi mene si navdušila z makeupi, da se tako potrudiš.. res lepo izpade, ampak barve pa mi niso nekaj ekstra všeč. Lepe so, to je pa vse.

  4. I'm a sucker for baked eyeshadows. How on earth would anyone be able to narrow it down to just one choice! They all look so good. I particularly like the Meadow and Sunrise shadows on you. Very nice!

  10. Meni v bistvu ni všeč noben od teh, ker mi grejo na živce senčila, pri katerih različni odtenki niso ločeni "fizično", torej s kako plastično steno ali kaj takega. Drugače pa pohvale za izčrpen in kot vedno lep prispevek :)

  13. Prva 2 sta mi popolna! <3 Meni ličenje s senčili ne gre ravno od rok, zato ostajam bolj pri natural MU-jih. :D Super post, ne morem se nagledat tvojih kombinacij. Tega pa res ne bom nikoli znala. xD

  17. Sunrise is my favorite with your beautiful green eyes. I love Meadow. I like baked eye shadows. They're usually a softer product. Still they all look so pretty on you.
