Primark P.S. Mini Haul

Over the last few years Primark has expanded it's P.S. range of makeup. I've tried a bit of it before and find it quite hit and miss. The good thing about it is, it is priced very cheap, which means if it turns out to be rubbish you haven't spent a lot of money on it. It is possible to find a few items which are quite nice out of the rubbish ones. I did notice that they had some new products in so decided to grab a few.

Sweet Cheeks Blush And Highlight Palette
I do love a good palette and when I saw this one I had to grab it. The blushers and highlighters look quite cute inside and come in 4 different shades. Lilac and pink with a bronzer and highlighter color too. Each color has a candy themed name such as Jelly Bean and Candy Floss. They are scented too which does sound good but in reality the scent smells really fake.

Color wise the pigment wasn't that bad. It did take a bit of work to get the color looking intense and they seemed to blend alright too. I did really like the highlighter in this palette as I thought that was quite good. I didn't use the bronzer shade as it looked like it would make me look quite orange. 

Bubble Blush Cushion Blusher
These looked quite good so I decided to grab the two of them, one in coral the other in pink. I have never seen cushion blushers before. If you are familiar with cushion foundations then these are a very similar idea. Using the sponge included you just dab it into the color and then apply to the cheeks. They did come out a bit sheer at first, but after a few more applications I got the color looking intense. As these are a cream product I applied them after foundation and before powder to prevent them going patchy.

Double Dimension Highlighting Powder
I love highlighters and the colors of these ones really caught my eye. The pigment in them wasn't the best and I really had to dig my brush into the color to get it to show up on my face. Once on they did give my face a nice glow. Purple was my favorite.

Shadow And Shade The Smoky Edit Eyeshadow Palette
This 9 color eyeshadow palette strongly resembles the MAC ones and I'm pretty sure this is another Primark copy. Primark seem to be copying a lot of other brands and bringing out a cheaper version of it. The colors in this one looked great and were really nice and intense. I love dark colors that stand out, so definitely had to get this palette. Pigment was alright, although some colors had a dry feel to them and took a bit of work to blend. To stop creasing I used my Urban Decay Shadow Primer. It may look exactly like the MAC palettes, but the quality isn't the same.

I didn't think that these products were that bad. I wasn't too fussed on the eyeshadow though. If you are looking for very inexpensive makeup to try out or just don't want to spend much I would recommend trying these ones.


  1. These look great for people experimenting with new brands. I love the packaging, very cute

  2. I bought lipstick from Primark this week and was really impressed with it for the price - only 90 pence. I like the smokey eye edit, great shades

  3. I have heard good things about primark make-up I've never tried them myself but my daughter is interested in trying them.

  4. I’ve tried Primark mascara before and I wasn’t too impressed but as you said, it didn’t cost me much so it wasn’t too disappointing. The highlighters look alright though.

  5. This is the range my 11 year old girls use as it is perfect for them, like you say - dead cheap and they can experiment. Mich x

  6. Great collection to experiment with. Cheap and cheerful

  7. I love primark make up! I think it’s such a fab range for the price and great for those who don’t want to spend a lot!
