Make-up from Primark?! Are you insane?! So I was wondering around Primarni, like I do on most days, and noticed that their make-up and beauty section is HUGE and their range is so much better than it used to be. I had a look through and decided to try some products and do a little review for you. So here we go…
Let’s start with make-up, more specifically, lip crayons.
These ones are actually called ‘lip and cheek crayons’ but I haven’t actually been brave enough to try them on my cheeks! I picked up a nude, which is really nice but a little bit too light for me, so probably the one I would wear least often.
These crayons are surprisingly really nice! They are so smooth and creamy and you won’t believe how long they stay on for! I honestly feel like these stay on longer than my YSL lippy (I know, what a claim!!) But these definitely get a 10/10, I just wish they had more shades as it’s quite limited at the moment.
Brow gel! I went for this because I’ve always used eye shadow powder to fill in my brows, so I thought I’d go all out and buy an actual brow product (adventurous)! The brush that comes with this one is like a mascara wand, so quite hard to apply, and it needs to be brushed in with a smaller, angled brush to fill.
It is a really nice product when I want super dark brows, and can they ever be too dark?! And it takes a bit longer to use this product than the eye shadow, so I don’t generally use it when I have work, as I’m normally in a rush! Ha! But if I’m going out and want to make more of a effort then this gel is the go-to.
Here’s me, pointing at my brows…..(?)
I usually just use a big brush and blend all three shades to bronze. I won’t lie, I absolutely love this one. For £2.50, the effect it gives is BEAUTIFUL and gives a really lovely shimmer, and actually makes me look like I’ve been out in the sun (for once!!) This is what it looks like on… I’m normally super pale.
Onto other products, and here are some brushes! Primark brushes are actually all you need. I have used higher-end brushes but, in all honesty, I don’t see that much difference! The Primark ones do the job, and their variety is great! (And they’re rose gold, so what else could you want?!) At £1-£2.50 price range, you can’t argue.
And finally, brush cleaner. I have actually never used a brush cleaner before. I usually throw them away once they’re too caked!! This cleaner is excellent. It does the job, it cleans the brushes perfectly well and they dry super-quickly! And £2!
