Is Primark make up any good?!



When I was in Primark treating myself a few weeks ago, you can see my haul here I decided to pick up some of their lip liners. I've heard amazing reviews on their make up albeit not all of it but their lip liners seem to be a massive hit so I thought I would try them out and put them to the test.

I only picked up 3 shades as I didn't want to waste them in case I didn't like them, I got Desert Sand, Rosewood Mauve and Toffee. They are 1.6g each which is pretty much standard for a lip liner and £1.00 each, yes, a quid!
 


I actually think the packaging looks pretty luxe for the price and love the coloured lids as it's so easy to find what shade I want, I store mine standing in a little acrylic pot.

The pencil itself has a really soft and creamy texture to it which makes it easy to apply and also fill in the rest of your lips as some pencils are too hard which makes it feel like you're cutting your lips. This just glides over nicely and blends in well if you make a mistake
 

From L-R, Desert Sand, Rosewood Mauve, Toffee
 
 
The longevity of these pencils are pretty decent, if you fill in all your lips it makes the lipstick stick to it more and last longer. I've used matte, satin and glosses with these liners and they all hold really good. I noticed when I drink or eat they do wear off quicker than some higher end lip liners but bearing in mind they are only £1.00 it's amazing value for money and would highly recommend

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any Primark make up?

  2. I've never really spent much time looking at the makeup in Primark as always assumed it wouldn't be great quality - but these sound amazing, especially for £1. I'll probably pick up loads on my next visit haha. x

  4. I've always been wondering whether or not I should try Primark makeup, extremely cheap makeup tend to scare me a little bit as my previous experience with it hasn't been any good, yet these sounds really nice, I'm one of those people who aren't necessarily looking for longevity in lip liners so I might really enjoy them!
