Moved by one of their fans' wishes, Beautyuk Cosmetics took the pledge to raise £50,000 for Cancer Research UK and designed a range of nail polishes to help them reach their target. While thousands of women are undertaking the annual 'race for life' race throughout the country, BeautyUK is inviting you to support the Cancer Research UK charity and to 'paint for life'. For each £5.99 'paint for life' trio set sold, they are donating £1 directly to the charity.
The shades are gorgeous. Hope is a delicate pastel pink which could double up as French manicure base if applied sheerly. I would describe Love as a shade of carnation pink and Strength, the deeper of the set as a bright hot pink. The formulation was very easy to work with, although they needed 3 coats instead of the 2 I am usually used to. Before playing with my paint for life set, I had a pre conceived idea about Hope. For me, it looked too pale and it was not going to work with my skin tone. 3 coats later and I was in love!
and last but not least this is strength. At this point, I would like to thank my spell check as I always always spell it wrong!
I think Beautyuk did a marvellous job with the paint for life trio. The shades are lovely and would suit a wide range of people, from the shy and who only want a hint of pink to the lovers of bold and bright talons.
Which is your favourite shade?
Will you be ‘painting for life’?
Availability: The paint for life trio is available in Superdrug shops nationwide and online (£5.99)
