So I FINALLY managed to get my arse 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! Anyway, after testing out Primark makeup, I thought I’d give you my honest opinion about the cheap clothing shop’s makeup brand – ‘PS…’.
Testing Out Primark Makeup
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
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
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
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
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.
