The wonderful Sophie @ MeLoveMakeup put me onto these, so I can’t claim any credit for the discovery.  Go check her out and give her some love… she’s had an operation this week and is feeling a little sore.

Primark have dabbled in cosmetics for as long as I’ve been shopping there, usually with very shoddy results (well, what can you expect).

I picked up 6 of these little pots for a grand total of £3.  You get two colours together in one bag and the bags are £1 each.

On closer inspection…

Initially these looked promising, the colour payoff isn’t too shabby and the colours are blatantly rather pretty.  I’d question the longevity as the shadows had practically faded into non-existence with one swipe of a baby wipe.  I definitely wouldn’t bother applying these without a good sticky primer.

Have you tried these or any other ‘Primarni’ cosmetic offerings?  What do you think?

    i’ve tried the naIl polishes before, they’re pretty cheap and chippy and the formula is either super gloop on the minis or really watery on the bigger sizes.

    i’ve always hovered over the lipglosses but they’re always in weird colours.

    I bought one of their glosses (clear) and a body brush.

    The gloss was sticky at first but stopped being sticky which was nice. The body brush was terrible, I used it once and there was terrible shedding so I returned it.

    The black colour looks promising but I thought the purple would be knockout.

    They had all their cosmetics on sale for 50p when I went last but I didn’t see these products there.

    Still, I can’t buy anything makeup wise as I have to get rid of stuff first..methinks a blog sale is on the cards.

  3. I’ve never looked at the make up in there before. I will have a look next time I go 🙂 x

  4. @Lucy – Thanks for stopping by! I have to confess, I picked up one of their gel eyeliners too… couldn’t help myself. Worst thing ever, I actually LOL’ed when I swiped my finger over the back of my hand 10 mins after swatching. It just came off in one finger swipe and smeared… so funny.

    @Rhamnousia, hello lovely! Yeah, they look better in the pots than they do on skin… but I should have probably swatched over UDPP seeing as I’d never wear shadow without nowadays. Not really fair. I’ll do a proper FOTD with the purple and see how it holds up. Ooh, blog sale – hope I get there first!

    @Tackyblueeyeshadow – Definitely check it out, it’s one of those… “I know this is gonna be shit but I just can’t stop myself moments”.

    Hmmm, They look so promising and pretty in the jar but honestly I was a little underwhelmed by the color payoff. How are they when wet?

    The prices are just a little too good to be true, n’est ce pas? Some of the packaging is quite fun though.
