Beauty | Primark Beauty






The week before payday, I was sitting at my desk at work when I realised I had forgotten my make up bag and of course I had a meeting with a client that afternoon. So on my lunch break I decided to make a quick trip to Primark on Tottenham Court Road to see what beauty items they had that wouldn't break the bank.

Key items that I knew were needed: concealer, bronzer, blush and a lip colour; and surprisingly Primark came up trumps. I managed to bag that little lot plus a kabuki brush for under £10.

The concealer itself is quite light and reminds me of Collections Blemish stick I used to use when I was a teen; however for quick touch up under the eyes and any spots that need some cover it does the job. The bronzer is a definite dupe for the Seventeen shimmer bricks and for half the price; as you can see in the swatch it is quite shimmery. So go careful when applying unless you're going for the disco ball look.

I love the shade of the blush so much, it's perfect for transition from Winter to Spring and is actually quite pigmented for only costing £2.50. Finally the lip pencil/crayon was the ultimate winner for me, it is a for sure dupe for the Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils and NARS Velvet Matte Pencils. This shade is just a subtle pink nude which is great to chuck in your handbag for lipstick emergencies.

Overall for the price Primark beauty does what it needs to for how much it costs. For me, I now keep it in my handbag all the time as my back up make up resource; excellent for when I have a last minute meeting or dinner date!

Have you tried anything from the Primark Beauty range? Is there any must haves I should pick up that are worth trying?
Let me know in the comments.

Until Next Time...
