A Primark PS Love Review

A while ago I tried some products from Primark's PS Love range of makeup. The majority of items from the range aren't that great, and I think the PS Pro range which Primark also do is even worse. There were a small number of items which I did like and I decided to get a few more items to try.


PS Love Super Matte Liquid Lipstick
Liquid lipsticks are all the rage right now and from the PS Love collection are the Super Matte Liquid Lipsticks. They come in more nude and neutral shades with very Kardashian sounding names like Kim. I got two of them in Kim and Kendall. The packaging isn't the best and feels quite cheap, although it does come with a very good doe foot applicator allowing the color to be applied easily. The pigment of these ones really isn't that bad and they do build up nicely. The downside to them is they are very drying. And when I say very, I mean very. I know mattes can be drying anyway, but these ones seem to be to an extreme. They were so dry they felt uncomfortable to wear and I ended up taking them off after 10 minutes.

PS Love Matte Long Last Lipstick and Bon Bon Lipliner
From these lipsticks there were two colors I really liked the look of - Tickle (pale pink) and Raspberry Parfait (bright pink). These are supposed to matte and long lasting. They were definately matte and can be a bit drying, so use a lip balm before applying. The pigment in them is alright and even though they are matte they don't feel dry to apply. They are no way near as drying as the Super Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I can wear these all day without them feeling uncomfortable, the liquid lipsticks I had to take them off. These ones aren't really that long lasting either as throughout the day the color did start to come off. The colors I do like, and even though these aren't the best mattes I have tried, they definately aren't the worst either. Would I buy more colors from the range, maybe, but it wouldn't be my first choice of lipstick. For £1.50 they aren't bad. 

The lip liners are one of the better items from the PS Love range. They come in a wide range of colors and they seem to match the lipsticks too. I got one in Bon Bon which is a bright pink color. It had a nice texture and felt nice on the lips too. The pigment was quite good and seemed to last on the lips a lot longer than the lipsticks did.

PS Love Get Lippy Metallic Collection Liquid Lipstick And Liner
Lip kits are very popular at the moment with loads of people wanting a Kylie Jenner Lip Kit. Makeup Revolution have now brought out their version of the lip kit and it now seems Primark have too in their PS Love collection. There were a few colors to choose from and I really liked the look of the metallic one. It's a sort of copper gold color and comes with a matching lip liner. In this lip kit, the liner is complete rubbish, there isn't that much pigment in it and it took ages to line my lips trying to get the color to show. The lipstick on the other hand is much better, it builds up nicely and gives your lips a fab gold color. One coat is a bit sheer, but with two or three the color looks nice and strong. 

Once on it didn't have a sticky feel to it either and stayed on for a while. It did need reapplying later on in the day. The packaging isn't the best, although it does come with a nice doe foot applicator to get the color on easily.





Insta Girl Liquid Lipstick And Lip Liner
When it comes to liquid lipsticks from the Primark makeup range I think that the Insta Girl Liquid Lipsticks are one of the better items. Still not the best, but not that bad for the price and the colors look amazing, plus they come with matching lip liners. The color I got was a beige sort of brown and looks great on. The packaging looks fab and comes with a doe foot applicator allowing you to apply the color easily. 

These lipsticks have a satin finish compared to a matte one. They do feel a bit on the tacky side after applying them, although they weren't too sticky like lipgloss. You could definately notice it when putting your lips together but it wasn't uncomfortable. They did need reapplying later on in the day and they weren't drying on the lips either.




I also bought two brushes too, I'm not going to review them in this post as I want to do a separate post on brushes.

The PS Love range isn't the best, although there are a few good items that I liked using. Have you tried anything from the PS Love range.

  1. There are some lovely colours here but I suppose you get what you pay for. At that price you can afford to experimemt and find out which products work for you.

  3. I think this range is good value for money, but probably not for anyone who likes to wear full coverage make-up all day long! Thanks for sharing! x

  4. Sounds like you get what you pay for! I like the weight of the pigments but not so sure on the formula x

  5. I haven't tried any of the Primark range, either the PS Love or the PS Pro. It really does seem that you have to buy many of the products to find the few that are not terrible. They do have some pretty colours but so many of them are just not well performing.

  6. I haven't tried anything from Primark's make-up range. I find them way too cheap to be good quality. Same as their clothes really... it's great that you find a couple that you would like to use in the future as well.

    1. Don't believe them because the bloggers that rave about it, especially the ps pro range seem to be biased towards it when it's bad quality x

  18. Whilst I love some of the colours that you have tested out here, I appreciate your honesty in saying exactly what they are like. I understand you get what you pay for, and if you don't mind some of the downsides then they are a great price.

    1. All of my reviews are honest. Many bloggers seem to rave about this range and can't find any faults with it, which is very strange x
