f you're looking for a compact set of three beautiful shimmery colors for your eyes, BeautyUk Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Beach is the one for you. 

This was sent to me by, a one-of-a-kind Pakistani online shopping website, to review and share my views.
Getting hold of popular international makeup brands in Pakistan used to be a tough job but not anymore, with, makeup lovers like me can indulge in the lastest brands sitting right at home. How awesome is that?

How reliable I found purchasing from
I have made quite a few purchases from and everytime I was a satisfied and happy customer. Two of my purchases have been via COD payment method and the latest one I picked up my stuff from their Pakistan Office on 25th Street, phase 5, DHA . It was the last day before the Eid-ul-Adha holidays and the person on duty was kind enough to wait for me for over 3 hours in the evening. I've become addicted to online shopping now, thanks to's reliable and quick service!!

What BeautyUk says about this Product:
Baked mineral powders refined into a pressed trio of shimmering shades. Sheer in texture yet buildable with each sweep of the brush. Color builds to create a veil of luminous colour on the eyes.
Choose from 6 colour combinations

PKR 650 on
£3.49 on the BeautyUk website

A round black plastic compact with a transparent lid. It has a tiny brush attached at the backside. The brush is no where like an eyeshadow brush, it's a tad bigger than a standard shader brush would be, I wonder why they've included it in this!!

My Review and Swatches:

I found it to be a complete kit for an eye look, it has a highlighting color, a pretty gold and a darker crease color, all are super shimmery. 
The best method for the application of this is to dip your brush into some water, and then apply it to the eyelid or pack on the color as you want. To create a more casual look, the eyeshadow can be applied dry, however it's difficult to pick the product[dry] on a brush, in which case you can use your fingers.
Quite longlasting, atleast 8-9 hours. I would say this is waterproof because I washed my face[ for wazu ] and they were still there afterwards, faded yes but definitely there. The color payoff is great with this, here take a look at the swatches: 

With Flash
In White Light
In Kitchen Spotlight[yellow]
Good things about it:
  • Complete set of three shimmery eye shadows in a compact. 
  • Decently pigmented.
  • Can be used for a casual look as well as an intense formal look.
  • Longlasting.
  • Handy Packaging.
  • Easy to work with.
Not so good things:
  • The brush is too big for applying eyeshadow and keeps retracting back inside the holder.
  • It's difficult to pick the product on a brush unless wet.
Rating of the Product:

    The whole COD thing is a great perk. I've never hear of that before! More companies to utalize that procedure. :)

  16. You are very lucky for having companies sending you things to review, i mean come on who doesn't like free stuff and especially when it its cosmetics?
    i like this palette a lot, the only sad thing is that my very pale and fair skin seems to not be made for sunny, bronze colors like those. they go better with olive or darker skin tones.

  17. That product really looks good!
