Lipsticks from 90 pence?! Yes – you heard right!! Primark’s PS cosmetics are becoming increasingly popular – I mean for the price i’m not surprised and its worth a try whether you like it or not right?
Lets begin with the lip liners – I picked two up, similar colours but textures are different. They are both the standard lip pencil type that you need to sharpen and both packaging’s are super cute too!
First one I grabbed was the PS…Insta Girl Kissproof Lip Liner Pencil in the shade IT Girl. This costs £1.50. This shade is more of a light dusky mauvey-rose colour. The colour is slightly light for my liking but it is wearable (the swatch on my hand appears darker than compared to when applied to my lips). I line my lips with this and then fill my lips in with Clinque Pop Matte Lipstick in the shade Cute Pop which are both a similar colour, but cute pop is a tad darker so I prefer this match up.
This is a proper matt lip liner therefore the texture is a little drying on my lips, it is purely fine as a lip liner but I would not be able to fill my lips in all over if I wanted too as it is not very spreadable/creamy…. but the staying power…is WOW!! I mean wow … for £1.50 this lip liner stays on a lot longer than higher priced lip liners!
As you can see above I tried rubbing this lip liner off compared to the other Primark lip liner I will discuss below. Is this “Kiss Proof?” – that I have not tried unfortunately 😦 lol! – but as this does not budge I would definitely assume so :P!
Second lip liner I grabbed was from the standard range in the shade Vintage Rose for £1. I prefer this colour to the IT Girl as this was a little more of a medium rosey-pink colour.
The texture is more creamy and finishes as satin matt. It was more spreadable to fill in all my lips. I personally prefer using a lipstick to fill in my lips but wanted to test this out for review purposes as I know some people like to do this. Even though this lip liner was more creamy, it did stay on my lips a good amount of time but no comparison to the Primark Insta Girl Kiss Proof lip liners.
Now, the cheapest out of the bunch – lipsticks for 90p! I Picked up the shade Vintage Rose, to go with the above lip liner. They work together like a dream.
The lipstick shade is the same as the lip liner – however I do find once it sets on my lips the colour comes out bolder and more rosey pink than first applied which a find very flattering on my skin tone. The texture is very creamy and it leaves a satin/glossy finish (not glittery btw). I prefer a more satin matt finish but for a duo lipstick and lip liner match for £1.90 I can not complain?!! Plus this smells incredible – smells like sweets!
I enjoyed using all three of these budget lipsticks and lip liners. The Insta Girl Kiss Proof Lip Liner has excellent staying power but I am not the biggest fan of the colour – perhaps I will check out more colours! Therefore, I find my self picking up the vintage rose lip liner and lip stick more often as they are a great match together. They will suit most skin tones and a colour than can be worn day time or evening.
I will definitely be trying out more Primark products now!
