I have to say I've been in two minds whether or not to do this post, because if the rumours are to be believed Primark are going to be discontinuing their make up line. This certainly seems to be the case the last time I was in all the make up items were reduced to just £1.00. Believe it or not this makes me quite sad, over the last year or so I've picked up quite a few little bits from the line and for their remarkably low price they haven't been at all bad. So here is a little post for you just to show you some of things that I've picked and some of the things you might want to hunt down before they disappear for good .
The true test of any make up brand is of course it's mascara, don't ever think that just because it's expensive it's good and because it's cheap it bad. I had just as many bad experiences with expensive mascara as I have had with cheaper. I don't care what anyone says sometimes cheap mascaras can do the business. I'd seen a few You Tube videos mentioning one a of Primark's mascaras so I decided to give one a go.
Sophie, originally retailing at £2.00 this mascara contains Pro Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E for added condition.
OK, time for another eye product or more specifically products. I've tried a few of the Primark Beauty eye products and to be honest they ain't rocked my world, this on the other hand did (well a bit anyway)
The brushes were definitely the low point of this kit, the kohl liners were also buttery soft and pigmented
Man on man Primark Beauty certainly do/did a wide variety of cheek products from highlighters to blushers and bronzers, and do you know what I've tried quite a few of them for you. First up a highlighter / illuminator
This definitely isn't a product that I would wear during the day at the moment but on an evening or with darker skin I think it would give the skin a lovely slightly shimmery gold sheen. This was originally £3.00
Next up another gold toned highlighter, this time in powder format the High Beauty Baked Highlighter
Finally possibly the most bargainous purchase of all and probably the most impressive for the price, called simply Blusher Powder
I love this blush so much I've actually included it in a few swaps, originally retailing at just £1.00, this will probably be an absolute steal now if you can pick it up. In a clear, basic packaging you get the softest, silkiest peachy /coral powder blush you could ever stroke. It's not just soft but its actually pretty pigmented
What are you waiting for go to Primark and see if they still have this baby!
So that was just some of the Primark Beauty items that I think deserve a bit of love, other good things I've tried include the Ta Ta For Now Under Eye Concealer, the Opia Kohl Pencils, the cotton wool pads and the Kabuki Brush! Whilst I don't think Primark's beauty range will appeal to the typically high end classical make up buyer, it's quirky. retro, Benefit like packaging has a definite appeal to the young and trendy customer. Lets be honest every single product isn't a winner and there are a few I haven't mentioned that did disappoint but if the range is to disappear from stores there are without a doubt some things that are well worth picking up, and even if your not keen for around £1.00 you haven't wasted too much money. If you have any questions please leave me a comment xx
