Primark Beauty Haul

IMG_1362

I’ve been constantly busy these past few weeks and haven’t really had a couple of minutes alone so last night I decided to make a date with myself at the Metro Centre and have some ME time. I needed to get a few last minute things for Paris and some euros so what a perfect excuse!

My intentions when I went into Primark were to just get a few bits and bobs including some new boots, a make-up bag and a new purse but as always I ended up spending a small fortune and going over the top. I just can’t help myself and it didn’t help that Primark have really stepped up their game this autumn. I was so impressed by not only their new layout of the store/branding which is a real improvement from their past branding campaigns I must say but by the clothing, particularly the shoes. They have a magnificent range of boots this season, perfect for day time to night time! I could have bought the full collection. Anyway, whilst wondering round I discovered their new Beauty section! I’ve seen a few pieces now and again when I’ve been in store but now they’ve released a face full of goodies for us and it’s fabulous!

I decided to get a few products including….

  1. A beautiful snake skin inspired make-up bag priced at only £4! I needed a new one for my travels which was going to be big enough to fit my essential beauty products plus my mini toiletries and this one fit the criteria. It has a waterproof thick lining within which is ideal especially when make-up/liquid is involved.
  2. Two PS…Lipsticks, one being Dessert Sand and the other being Candy Pink costing a little 90p! I loved the colours especially the sand shade since you can’t go wrong with a brown shading lips, a darker outline then the lippy always looks gorgeous on a pout. I wanted some lipsticks to just always have handy in my hand bag and these are ideal, plus a pink lippy is a must have to brighten your face up every now and again.

I think you must extra pay for the fancy packaging and silver range to be honest but it does look pretty ha! This is a more moist lipstick and I bought it to see the difference between the two ranges.

IMG_13694. A PS Pro Longwear Lip Liner Pen, I’ve actually never used a pen style lip liner so I was intrigued at the difference between the pen and a pencil! I can confirm this stayed on longer! I got a red shade rather than a one to match the Pro Lipstick as I have the Ruby Red Matte lipstick from MAC and find it chaps at the edges of my mouth so thought this might neaten it up and it does, score.

IMG_13665. The PS…Brow Cream in dark brown and the PS Brow & Wax pencil in dark brown. I’m a pencil gal when it comes to eyebrows, my Mam’s been trying to convert me to cream since she bought the benefit brow cream a few months ago and don’t get me wrong it’s amazing and defiantly presents more definition BUT I use the pencil for quickness on a week day morning. Putting this aside I bought the brow cream to give it ago and it’s great, the mini sculpting brush included is a godsend because I have no idea what over brush I’d use if you just got the cream. The pencil is a little more like a crayon then a pencil, it’s thick which is good but doesn’t work well for the ends/finer ends of your brows but I’d still rate it if you have an eyebrow brush to comb through the fine ends.

In conclusion it’s a yes from me Primark cosmetics, budget and quality! I’ll be using their make-up day to day for my work looks. Make sure to check it out the next time you’re in store.
