Don’t you just love a bit of Primark?
I have been at it again, I saw an opportunity when buying children’s birthday presents to have a cheeky nip into Primark and have a gander at their makeup section. Primark Makeup (the P.S. range) has come a long way in such a very short space of time and is becoming one of the best budget makeup brands with its good quality at cheap as chips prices. So without further adieu, let’s get to the good part and see what I bought, let the haul begin.
P.S. Lash Out Mascara
I love this mascara so much I bought two when I bought it in another Primark haul I was not expecting much and thought for £2.50 I would not lose much if it was not good. I am delighted that I have found a mascara that matches up to my ‘Holy Grail’ Essence Forbidden Volume mascara (now discontinued).
I really dislike mascara formulas that are very wet, I prefer the more dryer formulas and the more traditional bristle wands (The Chanel Dimensions one is amazing but way too expensive). This Mascara wins on both levels; it has a dryer formula that lets you layer it easily without clumping and it has a full, bristled wand that means all of my lashes are taken care of. This is a volumising mascara and it definitely lives up to its name; every lash is covered and it makes my lashes feel fluttery like demi wispy false lashes. I would really recommend this mascara and it is quickly becoming a ‘ride or die’ product.
P.S. Brow pencil in dark brown
I have been trying hard to use up some of my brow products, currently, I am battling through using the Elf Brow Pencil that I mentioned in my ‘disappointing products’ post. I already have my ‘Ride or Die’ freedom brow pomade and my Nyx Microbrow pencil ready to use once I pan the Elf pencil so why did I buy another brow pencil? The simple reason I bought it was it was only £1, I am a pure sucker for anything that looks like a bargain (I love the discount shops). The logic behind the purchase is that I try the brow pencil, if it is good then I have found a cheaper replacement to my Nyx Microbrow (which is around £7) and if it is not good I have only lost a pound at the most and maybe a few bad brow days. As people always say, nothing ventured, nothing gained and if this is as good as the Mascara I will be saving seven times over compared to the Nyx pencil and every little helps.
Super Matte Liquid Lipstick in Kylie
I have too many liquid lipsticks and was never intending to buy this little gem as I feel like I am moving away from liquid lipsticks back onto traditional lipsticks which have a better ‘wear down’. However, I was having a nosy at the Autumn lipsticks that had just come out and saw the glittery fabulousness of this shade. At first, I thought it was just the packaging that was glittery as the lipstick is marketed as ‘super matte’. However, after looking at a few others I came to realise that the glitter was inside the actual lipstick and it had a great pink/purple shift to it, I was instantly hooked and just had to see what it was like. As of yet, I have only swatched it but if you apply it lightly then the glitter really shows up in all its glory, I am super excited to give this one a whirl.
P.S. My Perfect Colour Foundation in Porcelain
There has been a lot of people raving how good the Primark foundation is but every time I go to look for it they never have my shade in stock. This is not the same foundation that I have been looking for (I am still yet to try it) but I was intrigued by the medium coverage, the semi-matte finish and the promise of Vitamin E within it, plus I actually managed to find my shade for the first time ever. The foundation looks like a decent colour match for my very pale skin and it smells lovely. I am going to test this out for a week and give my face a change from the Rimmel Lasting Perfection foundation which I love and I am always going back to as the shade match is perfect for me.
Mustard Slouch Cardigan
This is obviously not a makeup purchase but I wanted to include it as it is such a nice item. I cannot live without long cardigans, they are my saviour. I always get too hot in jumpers so I tend to wear cardigans a lot in the autumn/winter, they are so good at hiding any lumps or bumps that I feel conscious about as well as being practical.
This autumn has seen the comeback of the oversized, slouchy cardigans and even ‘coatigans’ that give you the best of both worlds; a coat that you can wear indoors and not get strange looks. I have been updating my wardrobe over the past few weeks, buying checked shirts and cardigans that can take me through the colder months.
This cardigan was a bold purchase for me as I do not usually wear yellows, oranges or reds but in the spirit of getting out of my comfort zone I got this and I adore it. I went to a kids party and wore this for the first time, it was not too warm to make me want to take it off and it covered over the tops of my legs which is a part I am conscious of. This colour is really great for autumn, it is bold but appropriate for the autumn months and for just £8 it is a bargain.
I am well aware that the pictures of the cardigan are less than perfect but then again that’s just me, I’m a bit rough around the edges and besides, perfection does not exist.
Have you done any hauls recently or bought anything from Primark, I would love to know what you got.
Ciao for now beauties xx
