So I love doing first impressions and looks with makeup but I haven’t actually had anything to review recently until now. I’ve wanted to pick up a Primark makeup product for so long as I’ve heard so many good things about the affordable makeup brand and watched a bunch of UK based youtubers first impressions which for the majority have been pretty positive. Initially when i went into Primark I wanted to pick up one of their liquid lipstick sets as this was the product that I’d heard raved about so much but I was super stressed, leo was grumpy and there were a bunch of teenagers who wouldn’t move even after I said excuse me a bunch of times, so I grabbed the next cute looking thing and I think my panic state picked pretty well.
I picked up the ‘PS Pure Blush Matte and Shimmer Blush Palette’ which on first impression looks ever so slightly like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush palette which is super cute. This product retails for £5 and comes with two matte blushes and 2 shimmer blushes which aren’t really blushes but blush toppers and possible even highlight. I do like the colour selection the colours come with but one thing I did notice on the swatches and especially on applying it to my face is how pigmented it was. I only used the top left colour called Fever and I swear to god I tapped my brush on my face and then on my cheek and I looked like a clown. As a pretty pale humanoid this isn’t really rare but my god it was ridiculous. Fortunately it did blend out with a bit of work and looked actually quite natural in the end which was good because I only do my makeup when Leo is eating and I didn’t have time to reapply anything because his grape stash was getting pretty low.
Here are the swatches in order. We have Fever, Flushed, In the Pink and Hot pepper. I didn’t realise that they had names and was looking on the back until I realised that It wasn’t printed in ink but very lightly pressed into packaging below each colour which can only be seen if you turn the palette and it catches the light.
Here is the look that I managed to create from it also using nyx matte but not flat foundation, seventeen 24 hour concealer, elf translucent setting powder, abh modern renaissance palette, nyx contour palette, elf eyeshadow primer, urban decay primer, nyx lipstick in cherry skies, sleek matte black eyeliner, ysl mascara and primark eyelashes.
Have you tried anything in the Primark collection? let me know what you thought of it.
