My Primark Make Up First Impressions And My Thoughts Now

My Primark Make Up First Impressions And My Thoughts Now

Hello Lovelies, 

A few weeks ago I purchased a few items from the Primark PS Love make up range. I did film a first impressions GRWM for my You Tube channel where I filmed myself applying the make up and then inserted some vlog type footage throughout the day at different intervals showing how the make up wore and lasted etc, I tried the make up right in the middle of the recent UK heatwave so a great day for a test as I was hot and sweaty (nice) I will pop the video link in at the end of the post for you in case you haven't seen the video and would like to. 

Today I wanted to let you know my thoughts on the make up now I have been using it for a few weeks and let you know how I'm getting on with the products and also give them their own individual review.

My Primark Make Up First Impressions And My Thoughts Now

The 3 make up products I bought from the Primark PS Love beauty range were a single eyeshadow, it doesn't have a shade name or number, a blush in the shade "Pink" and a lip pencil in the shade "02"

The eye shadow I chose is a lovely champagne shade it doesn't have a shade name or number but it was the only single eye shadow in this shade so it will be easy to spot should you want to. I bought this shade as I thought it would be most versatile and could also be used as highlight and because I felt it would make a lovely all over the lid shade. 

The first time I used the eye shadow I found it quite hard to pick up some product on my brush and I had to swirl my brush round in the product a few times, but once I'd managed to pick up some product it applied beautifully and blended well, it is as I thought a lovely all over the lid shade and is a pale champagne shimmery shade, it is very shimmery so if shimmer isn't your thing then this won't be for you but if it is you'll love it. I think it's a lovely shade especially for the summer and would look lovely with a tan worn alone just swept over the lid and maybe a little under the brow bone. I haven't had any problems picking up product on my brush since and I always manage to pick up a good amount of product, the eye shadow applies and blends well and has great staying power, I use a MAC paint pot in Painterly as a base for the eye shadow and it stays in place all day, when I filmed the video I wore the make up for 8 hours and didn't experience any creasing and the eye shadow didn't fade at all and I have since worn the shadow for 11 hours hours and it was fine, no creasing or fading and for a £1.00 eye shadow I'd say that's pretty amazing.

The lip pencil I chose is a bright pink, there was also a nude/brown and a bright red to choose from but I'm sure you all know by now that pink is my favourite colour so it had to be pink, and I also thought it would be a lovely shade for the summer. There is a number 02 on the side of the pencil so I'm guessing that is the shade number, I thought the best way to test the pencil would be to wear it as a lipstick so I applied it all over my lips, I found the pencil applied well and didn't drag and I was surprised to find it didn't feel overly drying on my lips at all and I could rub my lips together easily. As with the eye shadow the lip pencil was £1.00 and I think it is great value for money, I find I can wear the lip pencil as my lip stick for around 4 hours before it starts to fade, the lip pencil fades away beautifully and doesn't leave a ring of colour around my lips as it fades. I am really pleased with the lip pencil and every time I wear it I am asked what I'm wearing on my lips and I receive so many compliments on the shade both in person and if I post a photograph on any of my social media accounts.

The blush for me is the stand out product out of the 3 products I bought and I haven't used any other blush since filming the first impressions video. It is extremely pigmented so I only need to use a tiny amount and it applies beautifully to the cheeks and blends beautifully also, it is a lovely product. It has just the right amount of shimmer running through it, although in the pan it does look matte but it does have a slight sheen to it, just the perfect amount for me, if you don't like a lot of shimmer in a blush this will be great for you, it has a small enough just visible when the light catches it amount and it really is a stunning blush. 

Overall Thoughts & Would I Re Purchase Any Of The Products?

I would 100% re purchase the products I have from Primark they are all brilliant and I am hoping to pick up some more make up items from the range to try out soon, I would like to try a foundation and powder, unfortunately at the time I bought the products I was unable to buy a foundation and a powder because the only available shades were too dark for me but I am hoping to pick them up in light soon and try them out. I'd love to get the blush in coral too, I love coral blush and if it is as good as the pink it will be great! 

I love all 3 products, they all applied well and wore well and after 8 hours of blistering heat the blush and eyeshadow hadn't moved at all, the lip liner had faded because I had been drinking and chatting but it faded away nicely so it wasn't a problem, the products are very affordable, they apply well and wear well and are definitely worth trying out if you haven't already done so, I would 100% recommend them and re purchase them.
