If you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, then you won’t already know that Primark have massively upped their makeup game; but, you knew that already. I’m a little bit late writing about some of the bits that I’ve picked up from Primark’s new releases, but then again – everybody and their mum were talking and writing about it too. So I guess you could say, I’ve waited (stylishly) until the right time to write about the Bronze Highlight and Glow Palette that I picked up at a measly price of £4.00.Primark have since, carried on bringing out new releases within their beauty range across their stores featuring eyeshadow palettes (think, Urban Decay Naked 1, 2, 3 style!), foundation, hair tools and so much more. Their latest range has even been branded as MAC dupes which includes pigments. They really are winning the game.
So, I sort of had high hopes for their beauty line – even though I didn’t want to, and probably shouldn’t have because “its only Primark” BUT I definitely had high hopes and I was not disappointed when I picked this highlight palette up and finally swatched the shades. Somehow I had managed to pick one up in the shop and get all the way home without even looking at the tester on show.
You’re probably already aware that this is 100% a *dupe* (is it ok to call it a dupe?) of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit which retails at a hefty £39.00 – and if you’re like me and CAN live without highlighter, you don’t particularly want to spend that much on a kit. There’s no denying that the ABH kit will be made of better materials, ingredients and hold much more quality than a four quid one from ‘primarni’, but if you just want something to test out then theres no harm in a knock off style product. Just don’t buy actual fakes/counterfeit makeup as this CAN be very dangerous.
I swatched the palette and much to my surprise, EACH, AND, EVERY, ONE of these shades were doing it for me. They are pigmented, pretty and so creamy that I thought to myself, dammit I don’t need that high end highlight palette everybody is paying £30 plus for. I’ve called bingo with this Primark number.
The ‘glow kit‘ comes with four shades: SUNBEAM, SIESTA, SUNDOWN & POOL PARTY. In order from left to right – top to bottom. My FAVOURITE shade to use is Pool Party along with Sun Down. I doubt that I will get any use out of Siesta because of the pinky shade not sitting right on my skin tone, however I’m definitely going to try playing with it on my eyes instead.
If you’re lucky enough to come across this palette (there’s also some other shade choices) in your local Primark, pick it up, and swatch it. You don’t even have to buy it, just feed your interest and have a look at the tester on show. This palette is so good, and it’s sitting on my makeup desk with my *most reached for palettes*. (Yep, you know you have a makeup problem when you have a basket of most reached palettes on your desk along with another collection of ones you don’t go for very often in your drawers. HA!)This highlight palette is not the only product I picked up from Primark, so hopefully you’ll see plenty more posts and thoughts on what they have to offer very soon!
I did actually try and film a full face Primark (and partly first impressions) video with the things I picked up, but it just wasn’t working for me so I got rid of all of the footage. Perhaps I should try again? Let me know if you would like that!
Have you had the opportunity to pick anything up from Primark’s latest collection of beauty products?
Lots of Love, Debra-Bow xxx
