So the PS… range at Primark has launched an entire Chocolate range giving off real TooFaced vibes (but actually being different and not a direct dupe). I’ve seen some other reviews online and people absolutely love them… so I had really high hopes.
The packaging is fairly simple. They all come in cardboard packaging which is not the most sturdy thing. However, overall it is actually super adorable. Everything in the whole range is under £6 each and so it is super super affordable.
The Primark Contour and Eye Palette is the centre point of the collection. At the most expensive of the range prices of £6, the palette includes 10 warm, neutral eyeshadows. It has the signature chocolate scent of the entire range, and ultimately it is very cute. However, the eyeshadows are very so so. They have a bit of pigment to them, and then blend fairly well. But essentially the colours are all very similar and I think MUA and MUR do eyeshadow palettes much better for a lot less.
Then there are two more eyeshadow palettes in the form of the Primark Eye Palettes in Milk and White Chocolate, these look a lot like contour palettes… but still. They include 3 shades – a ‘highlight’ a cooler-toned brown and then a super warm brown shade. These are actually pretty good… I don’t entirely get the point of these palettes… but they’re not bad.
The Primark Cheek Palette is adorable. It includes a highlighter, two blushes and bronzer in adorable little heart shaped pans. Reviews online RAVE about this palette.. however, once again, things come up a little bit flat.. The bronzer and the blushers are ok.. however I find the highlighter too glittery. I want a highlighter that provides more of a sheen or a wet look.. but this is just glitter…
The Primark Bronzer is absolutely stunning. It looks so much like a chocolate and cream ice cream pot! This is quite a dark bronzer for my skin tone, but if you like a shimmery bronzer, then you will probably quite like this. It’s not bad.
The Primark Highlighter once again is pretty glittery, but this time with a more pink undertone. I think I prefer this to the one in the palette… but it’s still way to shimmery…
The one thing I physically can’t ever wear ever again are the Primark Chocolate Molton Gloss Lip Kits. I mean they applied pretty well, the applicator (a sponge) was actually super soft on the lips and they felt very comfortable. However, it stunk. The chemical, sweet scent was so overpowering it made me want to be sick. I honestly couldn’t stomach it… so I don’t actually know how it wears…
I see people trying the new makeup from Primark and absolutely love it.. and I honestly can’t see why, or I feel like I’m completely missing something. However, these are my honest opinions..
Have you tried this makeup? If so, what were your thoughts?
