Testing Out Primark Makeup

So I FINALLY managed to get my ass into Primark and pick up a few of their beauty products! I had heard so many great things about them, so I decided it was time that I actually tried them out myself! As soon as I got home, I wish I picked up a few more things, but hey ho, it gives me an excuse to go back!

PS… Get Lippy Matte Collection

Shade – Girls World

Price – £3.00

Weight (Liquid Lipstick) – 10ml

Weight (Lip Liner) – 1.5g

Packaging – The actual packaging of the lipliner and lipstick itself feel super cheap to me. I prefer the lipliner out of the two, but the lipstick feels like it’s made out of super cheap plastic. It also really annoys me how it doesn’t have a shade name on either products, so if I were to repurchase these, I’d have to bring the product with me into Primark, and try to find the same shade.

Performance – Despite having shitty packaging, the performance on these bad boys is incredible. They’re both super pigmented and have a instant matte finish. The only thing is that they do smudge quite a lot, so I doubt you would be able to eat a burger in this without it ending up on your chin.

Rating – 3.5/5

Swatch –


PS… Lip Lacquer Liquid Lipstick


Shade – Temptation

Price – £2.00

Weight – 5.6ml

Packaging – I really like the packaging on this one. It feels a lot more expensive compared to the liquid lipstick set. The one downfall for me is that it doesn’t stand up on its own which may be a problem for some people, but it doesn’t really affect me that much due to how I store my makeup.

Performance – The pigment again is crazy good. I stupidly have it stuck in my head that all liquid lipsticks will be a matte finish, so it took a while for my brain to realise why it wasn’t drying. If I knew it wasn’t going to be matte, I most likely wouldn’t have brought it, but saying that, it is a beautiful colour and does look super pretty on the lips. Do be careful with this since I found it to be pretty thick and gloopy at times, but with a thin layer, you’re good to go.

Rating – 3/5

Swatch – 


PS… High Pigment Blusher

Shade – Lustre

Price – £1.50

Weight – 4g

Packaging – I’m a fan of the packaging of this one. I like it when I can see the colour through a close lid since I’m pretty forgetful and too lazy to open all the lids of my blushers up.

Performance – Okay pigment… HELLO!! This is stunning! It is so beautiful and if someone told me that this was a high end brand, I would totally believe them.

Rating – 5/5

Swatch – 


PS… Master Eye Palette


Price – £6.00

Weight 12 x 1.5g

Packaging – The packaging reminds me a lot of the MAC palettes which I’m definitely not mad about! The only downside to it is that there isn’t a mirror, but this isn’t too much of a problem!

Performance – Again, the pigment on these are CRAZY good! I had a play around with them the other day, and I packed the product on my brush (thinking that they wouldn’t be very good), and the colour pay off was incredible! The only problem I had with these is there is quite a bit of kick back, and also they’re not the easiest to blend, but with a lot of blending, they work fine!

Rating – 4.5/5

Swatch – 



PS… Brow Pencil


Shade – Medium

Price – £1.00

Weight – 1g

Packaging – I’m a big fan when a brow pencil comes with its own spoolie, so big thumbs up for this!

Performance – For some reason, I didn’t take a photo of the swatch, but this is seriously good! Really pigmented and glides on really smooth! Possibly not the most natural looking brow product out there, but with a light hand, this works really well!

Rating – 4/5


Okay Primark. You’ve done good. I can’t believe the price of the products for how good of quality they are. I did hear somewhere that their products are all cruelty free, but since I can’t find a little rabbit on any of the products, I’m not 100% sure how true this is (someone enlighten me please!). I definitely will be going back soon to pick up some more of their products, and I definitely recommend checking out the PS… range if you’re wanting good pigmented products for a low price.

Have you ever tried any of Primark’s makeup? What did you think?

    The only bits I’ve tried so far haven’t been very good but I love primark! I must just be picking up the wrong products! x

    • 23rd August 2017 / 2:52 pm

      What things have you tried out? I definitely recommend the blush! It’s so good! x

      • 23rd August 2017 / 5:11 pm

        I’ve tried a lipstick, eyeliner and liquid eyeshadow so far and not got on with them. Maybe I’m just picking up the wrong things though I’ll have to try that blush. I’ve had a couple of their brushes that aren’t bad for the money too! x

          • 25th August 2017 / 2:38 pm

            I caved yesterday and bought the eyeshadow palette and a glitter palette!

          • 25th August 2017 / 3:57 pm

            I swatched it in store and love the colours, they don’t blend all that well and I had to wet my brush to get a good colour payoff but looks great on the eye! Wasn’t as keen on the glitter but I only got that to play around with really! x

          • 25th August 2017 / 8:26 pm

            Oh no way! How bizarre! I didn’t see the glitter ones in store, but its a shame they’re not that great! x

          • 25th August 2017 / 9:45 pm

            The glitter palette was only £4 so I’m not too bothered. Might do a review on it but yeah they’re great colours but the glitter is like only on the top layer if that makes sense? Think I will hit pan on them pretty quick x

          • 25th August 2017 / 10:31 pm

            Ah that sucks! I swear so many companies draw you in with the pretty top layer, and then after one use, its gone! x

          • 25th August 2017 / 10:32 pm

            I fall for it every time I see the glitter! X

  2. 23rd August 2017 / 2:10 pm

    I’ve once swatched a primark lipstick and I couldn’t take it off for a couple of days! Still can’t decide if that was a good or a bad thing 😀

    • 23rd August 2017 / 2:58 pm

      Hahah I’m the same when I find it difficult to get a swatch off!

  3. 23rd August 2017 / 2:33 pm

    Ooh the blush looks incredible 😍

  4. 23rd August 2017 / 3:15 pm

    but literally everything looks so pigmented and amazing

  5. 23rd August 2017 / 3:38 pm

    That first lipstick looks quite pigmented! Also, please know that I’ve nominated you for the sunshine blogger award! Head over to my blog to see my questions for you!

      • 25th August 2017 / 2:05 pm

        Welcome hun! I feel you’ve been MIA lately. All good though?

        • 25th August 2017 / 3:52 pm

          I’m having a bit of a blip at the minute with a cold and sinusitis, but I’m getting there! Thank you for asking sweetie!! x

          • 25th August 2017 / 3:59 pm

            Good! Hope you get better soon! And, no problem!

    I love Primark make up, i have’t tried anything for my brows yet, but after reading your post i think i’ll have to! X

    • 25th August 2017 / 1:55 pm

      Definitely worth giving a go! Let me know what you think! x

  7. 23rd August 2017 / 5:34 pm

    I am in love with all your blogs!!! I would love to buy Primark but here in the states it is difficult. Will try to get it shipped maybe!? 😘

    • 25th August 2017 / 1:56 pm

      Ah thank you so much sweetie! And definitely worth trying out if you can get your hands on some! x

  8. 23rd August 2017 / 9:31 pm

    I never try Primark makeup! The eyeshadow palette looks very good 😉

    • 25th August 2017 / 1:58 pm

      Definitely worth trying! It’s honestly so surprising how good it is!

  9. 24th August 2017 / 5:25 am

    I love that purply maroon shade of the lipstick! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  10. 24th August 2017 / 9:58 pm

    Delighted I found this!! Going on Saturday and plan to spend ages there!! I cannot wait!! Its been forever!!!! Ok 2 months but still 🙂
    DYING to try the lip kit for sure!! Didn’t think of the blush but after seeing a 5/5 i’m in!
    Did you see any of the beauty and the beast stuff?? Tempted i must say 🙂

    • 25th August 2017 / 2:13 pm

      I love a good Primark shop!! I didn’t have much hope for the blush, but its honestly incredible! I didn’t see any of the beauty and the beast stuff, no! 😔 Wish I had looked out for it now! xxx

      • 29th August 2017 / 9:37 pm

        Girl I could kiss you! I got it over the weekend and I’m loving it!!! Not sure on the lip kit if I’m honest. I got a metallic one and i think it doesn’t suit my complexion. Next time I’m in I’m gonna look for a matte one!! Thanks for the tips xxx

        • 30th August 2017 / 10:38 pm

          Ahh I’m so glad you liked it! I’ve heard so many mixed reviews about the lip kit, but for £4, I don’t think it’s all that bad! xxx

          • 31st August 2017 / 10:05 pm

            Thats what I thought!! So even when I was using it and thinking of what could be improved i kept coming back to how much of a margin it was. The price defo swayed me 🙂 xx

          • 31st August 2017 / 10:26 pm

            Totally agree! Not the best, but for the price, I’m in! xx

          • 5th September 2017 / 9:35 pm

            I’m after popping in again this week and bought a crap load of hair items!! I’ve chopped it off a bit and needed some new things!! Less than £15 and a massive bag full!! What would we do with out Primark 🙂 xxx

          • 6th September 2017 / 10:09 am

            Oh you’re now making me want to go on a shopping spree haha! xxx

          • 6th September 2017 / 10:42 pm

            Do it!!!! hahahaha just don’t let your purse blame me xxx

  11. 25th August 2017 / 9:32 pm

    I own only a lip pencil from primark and the color of it is horrible 😂 We don’t have primark here where I live so I can’t really get my hands on these but I would love to try their blushes!! xx

    • 25th August 2017 / 10:29 pm

      Ah no way! That’s a shame! Have you had a look on eBay? xx

      • 26th August 2017 / 6:13 am
