BeautyUK Snob



On a recent shopping trip I picked up a lipstick from the BeautyUK line in the shade 'Snob' - a mauve pink. I do have to say under the shop lighting it did look a bit more muted and pale, it's definitely a bit darker and has a stronger lilac undertone than I expected and on reflection isn't really 'me'. The packaging is pretty minimalistic and dare I say it - cheap looking, however it's creamy, applies smoothly to the lips and has good pigmentation. I did find it to be quite drying after an hour or two and another thing that I'm not a fan of is the strong menthol scent, I can slightly understand the smell in plumping products but not your everyday basic lipstick.

Overall it's not terrible for
£3.49 but I find the Collection 2000 lipsticks considerably better quality and less expensive, at just £2.99. I do have to say I'm 99% sure BeautyUK have raised their prices recently, I don't really understand why although I did swatch a few powder products and they seemed better quality than I remembered.

To Try: Their blushers, especially if you're looking for a dolly pink.
To Miss: Their lipsticks.

  2. I have this as well! hate the smell it's so weird, but I find this lipstick looks sooo much nicer if you put the gloss on top that comes in the little pull off plastic bit in the bottom xxx

  3. @Elise Lauren - I think a few of their others have a slightly glossy finish so they might be more moisturising :) xx

    @Sophie - Ahhh! How did I not know the bottom pulled off, I thought that was just to show off the colour haha x

  4. I actually really like this colour on you. about 95% of my lipstick are MAC and I struggle to tear myself away. I find all drugstore lipsticks are far too drying but I have come across some lovely shades from Rimmel and Revlon. xx
