Can you believe I’ve never tried Primark Beauty products before?? I know!! My local stores don’t carry a huge range but when I was in Manchester a few weeks ago (best Primark EVER!) I spent an inordinate amount of time browsing their shelves and this is what I took home. Of course I had to pick up this cute monogram makeup bag to keep it all in too..
The lipsticks are probably what I was most impressed by, they are so bold and pigmented and in colours you wouldn’t expect. Cheap makeup lines usually have the same old shades, unwearable nudes and frosty pinks but these are really great. They don’t have names so I can’t tell you what they’re called but the taupe was what sold me, such an on trend colour.. and the PACKAGING! Near identical to Max Factor and considerably swisher looking than the £1.50 price tag.
This I picked up on the recommendation of El from AThriftyMrs who told me it was excellent for the price and she wasn’t wrong. It’s very impressive both to swatch and to use. It’s not Makeup Revolution impressive but I’d say it’s comparable to MUA and it’s around a third less so if you’re pinching pennies you might like this. The colour selection is great too, neutral but the odd colourful shadow too and a huge mirror in that sturdy packaging.. all for £2.50.
Lastly I didn’t even know Primark MADE fragrance but not only do they do it in bottles but they also make rollerballs which are near impossible to find regardless of price but SO handy to have. The scent I chose, Pink Me Up is sweet and fruity, generic, nothing super special but still really nice and although I can’t remember 100% I BELIEVE it was £2 or maybe even less. I will be picking up more of these roller balls for stocking fillers for sure!
Have you tried much from the Primark beauty range yet?
