Whilst it seems like the cost of everything has been going since the VAT increase at the beginning 2011 it is a sweet relief to know that there are still some makeup companies out there who release makeup products at really affordable prices: BeautyUK Cosmetics is on a roll at the moment and has released no less than 7 new lines of products.
The Lipsticks (RRP £3.49 or £2.80 with Sugarscape Voucher)
Our brand new collection of lipsticks in a matte or gloss finish and a wide range of statement shades to tempt you away from a predictable palette.
Choose Matte for a nourishing, long lasting pop of colour or Gloss for a luxuriously moist formulation for that wet look with a strongly pigmented shine. All formulated with a fresh and tasty hint of mint flavour.
The lipsticks are priced at £3.49. They will be available from Superdrug from 13 April, or you can purchase them now online at 20% off, until 15 June. Reduction Voucher to pick up here or from http://bit.ly/vingtoff.

The Pearl Eyeliners (RRP £3.49 or £2.80 with Sugarscape Voucher )
Ever since I first saw a sneak preview of 3 shades of these shimmert eyeliners, I have been dying to try them, and see the whole collection. BeautyUK has finally released them, and here there are in their full glory. Isn't the packaging pretty? Aaaah! Now wait till you see the names!
My instant favourites are Sphinx (just love the name even if I already have a gold metallic eyeliner) Purple Haze and Rich Mahogany and it’s going to be real hard to resist them, especially with a 20% off!
Do you live next to Wimbledon, London? The brand spanking new Superdrug is already selling the new range in advance of everyone else. If my Superdrug doesn’t come with a stand like this one, there’s going to be a riot. I am bit scared though. What if my tiny little Superdrug says 'Oh well, the beautyuk stand has gone too big now, we don't have room for it'? :S
