Primark Beauty Haul

Everyone has been raving about Primark Beauty recently, so I decided to see what all the fuss is about. Primark offer a budget beauty range with accessories and makeup.

I didn’t go wild, as I wanted to try a couple of items out and purchase things I would be most likely to use.

The make up range is called ‘PS…’ and they do seem to be expanding. Especially at the larger flagship store in London – it’s HUGE!

Here’s what I got:

  • 3D effects Silver Brush Holder £3.50
  • Holographic Makeup Bag £3.00
  • Lip Pencil (Pink) £1.00
  • Eye Pencil (Blue) £1.00
  • Batman Beauty Blender £2.00

This brush holder looks like a unicorn threw up all over it – it’s so shiny and iridescent. I love it! I am using this to store my daily brushes in.

It pretty much goes with the whole theme of my vanity, which is bright funky and different.

I had to get this cute makeup bag because it matches my brush holder. I saw someone had posted it on Facebook and it looked like a nice size for travelling. I can fit my compacts, liquid lipsticks and a MAC quad in which is pretty good.

I am known to be a makeup sponge hoarder. I have so many. I like to try new ones out all the time. This is £2 and isn’t as bouncy as my original beauty blender. I find it doesn’t hold its shape after you wet it, but I can’t complain for the price. The Batman range by Primark has been all over social media and I wanted to own a piece of it.

I am wearing the lipliner here under my Liquid Suede Cream lipstick by NYX called ‘Tea and Cookies’ (available here)

The range of colours in the lip liner collection was quite limited and this was the only colour that really stood out to me. I have been wearing this under my Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Milkshake’ liquid lipstick and NYX ‘Tea and Cookies’ (seen above) It’s not as creamy as I had expected and I do find it to be quite drying on the lips. When I opened it, it looked like it might have had that creamy consistency which I love, but sadly not. I will use this though as a base for my liquid lipsticks, but I am not all that crazy about it.

I love pops of color under my eyes, so when I spotted this peacock shade, I had to buy it. I use this under my waterline blended out for that Summer Look. If you follow me on snapchat (makeup_musings) you will know that I use the ‘baking’ technique under my eyes. This will prevent product from smudging or creasing. Not with this liner. After a few hours wear, my under eye was smudged in teal. Not a good look and that is even with baking! I don’t really recommend this eye pencil, because the quality is very poor and although it is pigmented, you do need to apply it 2-3 times to get a good colour pay off. I think you can find better quality eye pencils from drugstores. Although this is only £1, I can see now why. It doesn’t have very good staying power.

Final Thoughts

I like Primark Beauty for it’s accessories, but I don’t rate the makeup very highly. I have only purchased 2 items which were pencils, but in my opinion they aren’t that great. I think they do a really cute selection of makeup bags, blending sponges and manicure pieces. If anything, I will go back for more of those. Stay away from the makeup girls – it’s not worth it.

Subconsciously I didn’t buy any of the liquid liner pens or lipsticks because they have had some really bad reviews online. A few of the brushes have been rated well, but the Primark I went to, didn’t have any.

Have you tried anything from the Primark Beauty range? What did you think? Comment below and let me know! XO

      Thank you babe ❤️ it’s just down to personal preference really. I think I am just use to high end items. But I have to say in comparison to other drugstore items, Primark makeup did not do well against it. The makeup bags are very cute and fit a lot in. I really like those. I would recommend the brush holders too as they look pretty on the vanity xx
