I was more than hesitant about doing this post and trying out these products. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the Primark Beauty range and I am guilty of dismissing high street beauty lines. In my head buying beauty product with my clothes just seemed far-fetched.
I decided not to go crazy and buy the whole line as I was not sure if I would like it but I did buy a few products.
Oval Makeup Brushes £2.50-£4
These are shaped like the Artis Brushes and I was a real sceptic. To be honest once you get the hang of using this brush on your face you can create a beautiful seamless finish. I found that my foundation was much more full coverage with this brush but for me that wasn’t a bad thing.
I used the smaller one to blend my cream contour and I found that it really did work a treat. It was easier for me to work with the smaller brush.
These brushes are really dense and I didn’t expect them to feel so soft but they are super soft and gentle on your skin.
Velvet Matte lip Crayons £2.
These are brilliant. I was so happy with the formula, I was expecting them to be drying and have a chunky finish but they didn’t. They glide on really well and blend well with each other if you are like me and like to blend shades.
I love this shade, I can’t get enough of super dark vampy lips and this shade truly delivered.
This is my favourite shade. It’s another dark vampy shade but it has a berry undertone that I am loving.
Pillar Box Red.
I was disappointed. This shade is so orange, I mean really orange. The funny thing is the texture of this shade is amazing it feels great on but I hate the colour.
This slightly purple nude shade is lovely. On its own it is too light for me but with a brown lip liner it becomes a great nude. I was amazed that this shade wasn’t drying at all.
I thought I’d keep it simple and go for the black liquid eyeliner. I only ever use the NYX- matte liquid liner so getting use to this brush being a little stiffer and quite thick was a challenge. But this eyeliner is really good and super black. The reason I love my usual liner is that it is very dark, I hate having use multiple eyeliners to achieve the darkest black shade. This eyeliner is really dark, dried quick and glides I on. I have found myself reaching for this one quite a bit.
Lip Liner-Wine £1.
I love this liner! I’m actually contemplating getting a few more shades. This is a lovely plum shade and it works well just to line the lips but also as a lip colour on its own or topped with a gloss. I can’t complain.
Lip Contour- Warm up £1
This is a lovely warm brown shade that has become a part or my daily makeup routine. This is sold as a lip contour and I only use it to line my lips but I love it.
Overall I wall impressed the Primark Beauty range and I think I will look for a few more lip liners and the other shades of the lip crayons. £2 for a long lasting matte lip colour is just unbelievable so I will definitely be stocking up.
