Beautyuk Lipstick in 'In The Buff' - Review & swatches

Friday, September 16, 2011 Sara Hassan , 32 Comments



Beautyuk lipsticks are one of the BEST drugstore lipsticks I’ve ever tried. Take my word for it!

Beautyuk Lipstick ‘In the Buff’:
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.

My thoughts
After I was sent to try Beautyuk’s lipstick in ‘Passion’, I instantly fell in love with it. If you remember, I got myself ‘In the Buff’ in my Beautyuk haul sometime back. You must have seen me wearing it in Sigma’s Flare palette review post. I paired it up with NARS gloss in ‘sweet dreams’. Oh my! It made a gorgeous blend.

Anyway, ‘In the Buff’ is a GORGEOUS rosy pink shade. I don’t usually wear pinks a lot but this is such a pretty one. I think it’s one of the favorite pink lipsticks I’ve got.

It has a nice ‘minty’ scent plus flavor to it. The texture is creamy and glides on smoothly on my lips to give a cream-matte finish. It’s immensely pigmented - gives a good degree of opacity on first swipe. It stays on for long too (stays good on me for around three hours). This lipstick gives a full coverage which is my favorite part.. Considering its unbeatable price, all these qualities are hard to believe, right?

I didn’t notice it setting into clumps around the margin of my lips which I face with my Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks. If I had to choose, I’d even pick this one over my NYX round lipstick in tea rose (which is my favorite too) because of its lasting ability. This lipstick leaves me NO choice but to love it wholeheartedly.

I suppose this shade would look flattering on any skintone. ‘Passion’ is much darker and bolder shade as compared to this one in my opinion. You can tone the shade down with any of your nude/pink lip glosses if you find it too dark for your taste.

Sadly, I couldn’t find a Nude shade in this range. I love collecting nudes. I so wish Beautyuk comes up with one. I think they should expand their palette and bring out some more shades.

You might like it if…
  • You want a lipstick with a good wear.
  • You find it affordable.
  • You expect a cream-matte finish.
  • You expect full coverage.
You might not like it if…
  • The light mint flavor bothers you.
My rating
4.5/5

If you don’t own one yet, I tell you; you're definitely missing out on something!

  1. I love pink lipsticks and this one looks like such a good one. In the comparison picture 'in the buff' looks better than passion. It looks more wearable.

    This my type of lipstick.
