Primark Eye & Lip Products Review | 2017

So a few days ago, I did my review on all of the Foundations and Face products that I tried from Primark! Now it is the turn of the Eye and Lip products. Check out the video over on my YouTube channel.

First the Eyes!

Eyeshadow. I brought the Earth eye palette. I keep my eyes very soft, and neutral, #boring! The truth is, I have no clue how to do these fancy, beautiful eye looks. Keep it simple, HA! I do a simple base colour, then blend up to the eyebrow. Done!

The product is very loose, as soon as I wiggled the brush, it broke down quickly, which I thought was a good thing, I only needed a little product 🙂 The colour seemed to be quite pigmented. Not the best, but for the price, it’s defiantly worth it, and for an everyday eye look. For a very reasonable €1.50!!

Next the Mascara, I am usually very fussy with Mascara, I like a good brush, usually a traditional brush, not too fancy. Primark had a few different types, I was spoilt for choice! I went with the Lash Out, €1.50.

I LOVED IT!

The brush was great, didn’t have loads of product on the brush, so didn’t leave loads of clumps. It left my eyelashes long, spacious,  and super natural! OH, MY GOD! My new favourite Mascara!

Third was the Eyebrow Crayon!

This was great, nice and soft, really easy to use. The spooly was great for blending it through. I normally use the Rimmel, basic Eyebrow crayon, and this was defiantly on par with this! I got this in Espresso, FAB!

THE LIPS

The Perfect Pout Lip Liner, this was ok! I wouldn’t write home about it. Meh.. take it or leave it.

I also brought the PS..PRO lip liner, which was in a shape of a felt tip. It was sooo easy to apply. I’m not massive into doing my lips, and wearing lip products., but this was great! So easy to apply, and easy to work with, and lasted throughout the day! LOVED IT

Let’s talk lipsticks. The first one I tried, was just from the basic range, in Buff.

The colour was terrible, but the overall feel of the lipstick was nice. It was very easy to apply and had a nice silky feel. Also left my lips feeling very nourished. I think if I was to find a better shade for my skin tone, this could be a winner.

Lastly, I tried the Liquid Lipstick! I’ve never tried these before, so this was a first for me! I liked it. It had the texture and mouldability of a lipgloss, but the pigment and intensity of a lipstick! Great! Again, maybe need to try a different shade.

Overall, I loved pretty much all of these products! Not only for their unbelievable value, but also for their overall look!

I would highly recommend these products, just play around with the different shades, and find what works for you 🙂

Primark Contor & Highlighter Review | Gg’s Lifestyle

I have already shared my review on Primarks Foundation.

Now, for my review on the Contour and Highlighting palettes!-€4.50

First the Contour palette. This comes in some lovely packaging, which also makes it super easy to store, and travel with. It comes with three shade. A brown, a blush, and a beige highlighter.

The brown contour was great, it didn’t have any harsh orange undertones, which I thought it would have, from using the foundations. It gave a really nice dark, soft shadow! Was lovely, and stayed all day.

The beige highlighter, didn’t have much pigment, but after really working the brush in I got enough product on my face to make a difference, so this wasn’t the best, but was okay, and did work well with the brown.

The blush, again, took a while to get enough product on the brush, and to be completely honest I couldn’t tell if it had transferred onto my skin. Not impressed.

Overall, I really liked this! I have been using it daily and had a few compliments. Most people thinking it is a high-end product… Ssh, I won’t tell if you don’t 🙂

Next, the Highlighter palette, €4.50. This was okay. I had high expectations of this after using the Contour palette.

This packaging is my favourite, beautiful, white and rose gold. I’m massively into rose gold at the moment, I just changed my phone to rose gold #loser.

It also comes with three colours. A soft golden, shimmery brown, nice soft pink blush, and a shimmery white.

The brown, was gorgous, added a little hint of pasaz. You could even use it on it’s own, maybe if you were heading out, on a night out.

The blusher, I actually used as my main highlighter, was lovely, left a nice natrual shine. I now use this daily, and again, get complimented.

Lastly the white… Let down, was very ashy, and looked dull. Which really ruined the look of the other two. I now just pretend that its not there. Occasionally I mix it with the blush, if I’m feeling extra sassy.

Overall, I was very impressed with both of these palettes! Defiantly recommend these!

Primark Foundations Review | 2017

So we all love Primark, I mean who doesn’t! They have impressed us even more with bringing out a new beauty/make-up! YESS!

primer

So I thought let’s see if they are all cracked up to be…. I did a YouTube video also, so head over to my channel to have a cheeky look!

First I tried their Illuminating Primer, from their PS..PRO range – €5. It claims, to give a radiant, illuminating base for your foundation. I personally love illuminating products. The feel was nice, felt very soft, I seemed to need a fair bit to be able to cover my face. The smell, it didn’t really seem to have a smell, not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Personal preference I suppose.

Once it was applied, my skin did feel a tad softer, but I wasn’t blown away. To be fair, though, I don’t use primers that often, but I still probably won’t use this one again.

On to the first of my foundations. First up the PS..PRO, Long-wear, Mineralized Foundation! – €6

Well! There were only three different shades in the store I was in. Which consisted of Porcelain (White), Warm Beige (Orange), Dark Beige (Very Orange/Brown). This disappointing me straight away, but have since seen a few other shades Pro.jpgfor this foundation, so perhaps it’s more my store then the foundation!

I loved the packaging. A very sleek design, accompanied by a glass bottle, and that ever so loved, pump. The shade, well…. Completely wrong, I went with the Warm Beige, it had very heavy orange undertones, which really match me, yet I do think, maybe if I was to mix in Porcelain, it would be a better match. The smell, it smelt really nice! The coverage, not bad, from my normal foundation, this was very full coverage. It is also very builder-able, if you are looking for that extra coverage. The overall feel. It felt a little heavy and sticky, but I think is mainly as I am not that used to heavy, full coverage foundations. Once I put a powder on, it felt a lot better.

Overall, I did like it, it would need to grow on me slightly, just for the full coverage side, it’s just such a shame that the colours are so out! Not my least favorite, but by no means the best.

Next was the Flawless Face Foundation – €4.

Much better! Again the shades of colours that were available, weren’t great, but they were more realistic. They had Nude, Beige, Dark Beige. Not to sure, but I went with Nude, and from the bottle, it looked perfect match. The packaging, very simple, a squeeze bottle, no pump 😦 The smell, smelt okay actually.Flawles.jpg

When I applied it to my face, it felt nice, easy to even across my face, and the colour was almost perfect. Straight away the foundation made my skin feel super smooth, and that was before the powder was applied. The coverage was a strong medium coverage, but again, could defiantly build it to a higher medium coverage.

This so far was my favorite.

Lastly, the 2 IN 1 Foundation. This has a foundation and a concealer hidden in the lid! €3.50 Genius!

2in1.jpgThe packaging is very similar to the above, but this had the concealer AND A MIRROR!! In the lid! The smell, wasn’t horrible, but not the best smell. The feel, very very very sticky. It felt like it was just sat on the surface of my skin, and not in a good way. It was really oily. As far as I know, I’m pretty sure they don’t have different foundations for different skin types, but should defiantly consider this.

The colours again were rubbish very similar to the PS.. PRO foundations, (just fancier names.) This didn’t match my skin tone, but was a little better then the PS..PRO. After two minutes of having it of I just wanted it off my face. Was horrid! I felt restricted from the feeling on my face, even after the powder was applied.

The concealer, not all that, very similar to the foundation. Over all, i really really didn’t like this AT ALL!

Overall, I was really unimpressed, was a massive let down 😦 Although, plucking out the favorite would have to be the Flawless Face €3.50. For the all round success. The feel, the coverage, and value for money, it was the cheapest, but felt the most expensive, and had the best skin tone match for me.

So if your thinking of buying a Primark Foundation, I would recommend the Flawless Face.

If I’m completely honest, I would stick to your foundation, you use at the moment. That being said, there are some great products that are Pucker! Stay tuned for my review on the Eye and Lip product review!
