Primark beauty is something that I have never really delved into until recently. On a recent day trip to London we passed by the Tottenham Court Road store and I couldn’t help but have a little wander around. Although it may seem like I went a bit overboard there was so much more that I wanted to try but couldn’t get my hands on! I would recommend visiting earlier in the daytime as by the time I got there in late afternoon a lot of the stuff had been opened and ruined but I still managed to pick up a fair amount.
I will start with the make-up items which I managed to find including three lip liners, two eye liners, a lip pencil and strobing crayons. At only £1 I found the lip liners were quite creamy and long lasting however the shade range is not very adventurous. The lip crayons are so pigmented and creamy, leaving a slight glossy look to the lips. Again the shade range is not great but I love this deep red that I picked up. I am not usually very big on liner – especially in such bright shades, but when I swatched these in store I just couldn’t leave them behind. They are incredibly pigmented and so easy to blend, perfect for adding a pop of colour or to accentuate the eyes. Finally the three pack of strobing crayons which is my favourite item out of the entire haul. Highlighter has fast become my favourite and most used item but I am yet to try anything in crayon form. When I saw these I snapped them up without a second thought and although I haven’t used them yet I can’t wait to give these a real good go as for £3 these could be a real game changer.
I picked up a makeup bag to pop my daily makeup in as my current one has seen better days – this one is so easy to clean and perfect size for storing everything in. Next up I got a couple of packs of their metallic temporary tattoos because you never know when you`re going to need these. I love the gold pack more than the silver as I think the colours really stand out and I can’t wait to use these over the summer. For me a Primark haul wouldn’t be complete without a pair of their stick on nails: this time I picked up this pointed matte sky blue pair which I am keeping for my next holiday! The gorgeous rose gold necklace is the perfect little addition to any outfit and I can’t stop wearing it – its safe to say my rose gold obsession isn’t slowing down any time soon!
Finally I picked up a couple of perfumes. I wanted something small to chuck in my handbag and carry round with me so I picked up this small bottle called dream from the till. This is quite a sensual, sweet scent that doesn’t linger for too long. I was over the moon when I saw that Primark had started stocking rollerball’s as I find these perfect for nights out, and chucking in overnight bags instead of taking giant, bulky bottles. I decided on two shades Coachella and New York which are both light and fruity, perfect for the day time and perfect size for chucking in a clutch for a night out. The last item I picked up in the perfume section was this fragrance stick which I have to say is so disappointing! This barely left any scent on the skin, even after applying several times and although I think the concept is good the product itself isn’t worth the money whatsoever!
So, that’s everything I picked up and what I thought. Have you tried anything from Primark’s beauty range recently?
