1001 looks and BeautyUK review

So, I've been trying to do a Valentine's Day look for you for a while now, but I just fail at using pink. It just isn't my color. But I made awesome lashes :D

I used feather, nail rhinestones and nail fimo :D Too bad they aren't really usable :(
But finally I managed to do super classic Valentine's look :D
Classic pin-up with 28 neutral palette:

  • 1 – lid
  • 2 - Crease
  • 3 – Crease
  • 4 – Highlight, inner corner
Paired with red lips, OCC NSFW:

I've been using MAC Peacock too lately, first I paired it with MAC Sweetjoy and Urban Decay Bourbon pencil:

Then I tried it with purple, MAC Vibrant Grape:

Also, my friend J went to a party, where the theme was 1001 nights, so I styled her and did her makeup:

For her makeup I used Sugarpill Goldilux and MUFE #92:

And I got also something awesome fit to that same theme! I got this A-MAZING indian bridal jewelry set from eBay:

Then a small review.
Amongst many other blogger, I also got some BeautyUK products to review.

I've tried beautyUK's products before, and I must admit that their lipglosses really didn't impress me much. Their loose shadows are good, but I've been avoiding their pressed shadows.

Bu now I got BeautyUK Lash-fx mascara and #6 Day&Night palette to try:

The mascara is OK.  I've seen much worse drugstore mascaras and also better ones.This is cheap and not bad. :D

 But the palette!
I was really suprised about it.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much, but this was really good.

Colors are pretty and pigmented and easy to use.
I love that it has a good colors, it has great highlighter and it also has black to make looks deeper. This one on great one to take with you, if you don't want to carry several shadows.

It's cheap and nice, colors are easy to pair (you get great combos if you take the opposite colors like black/white, cream/bronze, yellow/rust, blue/purple, pink/red).
How ever, I suggest you use a good primer underneath these.
Here's swatches:

And two looks with this palette:

And our ratpack also got a new member, we call her Possu (piggy) :D
