Complete BeautyUK Pearl Eyeliner Swatches with Mini Review.

Heya guys, I don't usually do pure swatching posts, I tend to go more down the reviewing route. But today as I've already reviewed one of these eyeliners already I thought I'd show you some swatches of all the other pretty shades. I couldn't resist buying the set as there was an offer on a few weeks ago, and I'd loved the one I had so much. They really do deserve to be showcased, in all their beauty and so today is the day!

For my full review of these liners click here.





L-R: 1 - Stardust, 2 - Sphinx, 3 - Oceania, 4 - Blue Lagoon, 5 - Rich Mahogany, 6 - Purple haze, 7 - Sorceress, 8 - Eclipse. 


What do I think of the liners? 
For £3.49 I think these a great deal, they're easy to use (as far as liquid liners go anyway) with a good applicator. The product itself is a little watery - so takes a little longer to dry and some shades need a couple of coats to get the opacity I'd like (Oceania and Purple Haze particularly). But the thing I love about them most is once they have dried down they last till I take them off. Removal isn't to much of a hassle either, they 'peel' off with my usual make-up remover. 


L-R: 2 - Sphinx, 1 - Stardust, 5 - Rich Mahogany, 8 - Eclipse.
 
2 - Sphinx - This is a yellow gold, with a pearlised finish.

1 - Stardust - This is your bog standard silver liner, but it's a good one at that. Very pretty.

5 - Rich Mahogany - This is more bronze than mahogany, but still a great colour, great for everyday wear.

8 - Eclipse - This one has a special place, being the first one that I bought. This is a dark blued gunmetal, with a definite blackness to it. Very pretty and again good for everyday. 

L-R: 3 - Oceania, 4 - Blue Lagoon, 6 - Purple Haze, 7 - Sorceress.

3 - Oceania -  This to me is just a teal, but it leans a lot more green, like the whole set this has a pearlised finish. This is not as pigmented as some of the other shades.

4 - Blue Lagoon -  Wow! This is the brightest blue eyeliner I've seen, the picture really does this no justice. Definitely one for the bright colour lovers out there. 

6 - Purple Haze - Of the two purples this is the lighter one and is fairly blue based. This is not as pigmented as some of the other shades.

7 - Sorceress -  This is much more suited to everyday wear than Purple Haze as it is deeper, having a slight black undertone. 


In the shade

In direct sunlight.

As you can see the pearlised finish on these is really pretty and when put under sunlight they're even better. I've had a lot of fun using these and have found them not too hard to apply - I'm not that good with liquid liner! 

4 - Blue Lagoon

My favourites
I do like all of them - although I'm not sure when I'll wear Sphinx (Gold) very much. My personal favourites are Rich Mahogany and Eclipse for there suitability to everyday wear. And I can't not mention Blue Lagoon here as it's just so bright, beautiful and out there! 

I have included a few photographs of me wearing these liners, I know they're not the best, but I just wanted to help visualize how they look on the eye. I'll get a FOTD up at some point wearing these properly, to show them in their true limelight.

These cost £3.49 and are available from the BeautyUK website, Superdrug and a UK clothes shop that I can;t for the life of me remember the name of, sorry! But if anyone knows, feel free to remind me in the comments below :) 

I'd love to see a lime green from this range and even a black would be great...

Thanks for reading my post, I hope you found the swatches useful, if not pretty to look at. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, Thanks again, H :)
