Primark PS... Makeup Review

Wednesday, 13 April 2016
Primark do makeup, I'm sure most of us are aware of this, but I hadn't picked any up because I was a little sceptical. I've tried their brushes before and I love their stippling brush (review to come soon,) so I decided that I should pick up a few bits to see what it was like.

I managed to go for all lip products which isn't surprising of me, but I also wanted to try their brush cleanser. The lipsticks were 90p each, the liquid lipstick £2, lip liner £1 and the brush cleanser £2. As you can tell, it is quite a budget brand: think MUA or MakeupRevolution, but I was intrigued as to how it would perform. I'll start with the packaging, it does feel quite cheap and plasticy, which I was expecting but the gold and black do go well together.

I decided to go for the liquid lipstick in shade 13, a really bright, pillar box red. For me liquid lipsticks are meant to be of non sticky consistency, however this is not, it is basically a thick, opaque, sticky lipgloss. Not what I signed up for. Also it has a weird tropical smell which I'm not the greatest fan of. The applicator is a really nice, it's a small brush as opposed to the traditional sponge doe foot applicator. (I have decided that I will put the liquid lipstick in my FX kit as it may work as fake blood!) Now the lip liner was more of a success, I think the shade was wine, but unhelpfully it was on the sticker which I removed. Wine is a gorgeous berry purple which I plan to use alone and under lipstick for a high impact lip.

The colour range for the lipsticks was kind of strange, there weren't really any colours I'd wear day to day so I picked two at random, (totally did research.) The browny purple, Kylie Jenner-esque is Rosewood Mauve, the texture is really creamy but it's not particularly opaque so will need a couple of layers. The second lipstick is Candy Pink, a salmon come barbie pink, definitely not a me colour, but like I said the selection was poor.

I've been meaning to get a brush cleanser for a while as I suck at regular brush cleaning, so when I saw this I thought it would be a good idea to try it. It doesn't smell great, I read a review that likened the smell to cheap vodka, but it does the job and I can't complain.

Overall, it lived up to my expectations, slightly cheap looking, but does the job. If you're looking for a few lip liners I'd definitely go to Primark, the one I have is gorgeous. Have you tried any Primark makeup

  2. I've seen the primark makeup before but I've never really paid much attention to it. Rosewood Mauve looks like a lovely colour, was it drying on your lips? And yes, that liquid lipstick definitely looks far too glossy to be a liquid lipstick.

    1. Yeah, definitely not a liquid lipstick! The lipsticks weren't too drying but did show my dry patches, which is unsurprising though as they are really dry at the moment xx

  4. I actually never knew that Primark did a makeup range! 90p for a lipstick that is such a bargain, I do like the sound of the lip liners though.

    1. The lip liners are the best of the bunch I think. Primark have had a makeup range for a while but only really now have they started expanding it xx

  5. I wouldn't expect much from a Primark range but I suppose they do come out with a few gems once in awhile. I heard they have sheet masks so I need to find those too. The lip liner looks pretty - I'd be tempted to get that. :)

  6. I've only ever tried their lipliners which aren't bad for £1 - I have it in Dark Pink and Nude, though the Wine looks a lot more pigmented. However, I'm not so interested in trying out their other beauty products to be honest. Other bargain lipliners I prefer are from L.A Girl and New Look - I think both sell for £1.99, and are a lot creamier and stay on for longer too. Thanks for the review!

    1. I've looked at the New Look makeup stand but I haven't bought anything yet. I'll have to take a look next time and actually choose something!xx
