Primark have always sold make up, but is it just me or have they really upped their game in the past couple of months? My local Primark’s beauty section seems to be bigger and better than ever, however I will admit, up until a couple of weeks ago, I had never purchased anything from Primark’s make-up range. During a visit to the Liverpool store, I spotted a lovely display of peach coloured products and HAD to investigate.
Primark’s new PS…Peachy-Keen range consists of an eye shadow palette, a blush & highlight palette, lipglosses, nail varnishes, tweezers, and the cutest beauty blender. I picked up the blush and highlight palette, as it’s probably something I have the least of in my beauty drawer. So let’s get down to my first impressions of the product…
I really like the packaging on this product, it’s minimal and cute, and makes the product look more expensive than it actually is (£4 by the way…I’ll wait while you nip out). The cover is magnetic as with many of Primark’s other palettes, and opens to reveal a highlighter and two shades of blush set in metal pans.
The shades in this palette are beautiful, and my particular favourite is the highlighter called ‘Peach Twist’, which is a shimmering pale gold tone (My swatch doesn’t do it justice!). The two blushes featured in the palette are ‘Peachin’, which is a deeper coral-pink tone, whilst ‘Sweet Peach’ is a softer, more romantic pink shade. As I am quite fair I wasn’t sure if all of the colours would suit my skin tone, but I was surprised by how flattering they were.
The packaging also invites you to smell the shades as they are ‘Soooo Peachy’, and they certainly are. As soon as you open the palette you are greeted by a light, sweet, peach scent, nothing too over powering.
Peach is a big trend in the beauty world right now – and Primark have obviously taken inspiration from Too Faced and their successful peach range, but for a fraction of the price. The Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette comes in at around £32.
I was really impressed with this palette; it has made me want to try the other PS…Peachy Keen products (I’ve got my eye on you, eye shadow palette. No pun intended). This range is great if you are on a budget, or if you’re a little bit of a make-up hoarder like me and have to rein it in sometimes! All jokes aside, this palette would make a cute stocking filler, Secret Santa gift or even just a little treat for you!
Have you tried anything from the PS…Peachy-Keen Range?
