So there I was, strolling through Primark, the basket that I’d grabbed on the way in “just in case” slowly cutting off the blood supply to my hand through the sheer weight of all the things which kept making their way into it, when I came across the new Primark Nudes collection. Having seen a lot of the KKW Beauty range on social media the packaging immediately leapt out at me as it was literally screaming out Yeezy season 6! This had been one of Primark’s most hyped collections to date, and despite my best efforts previously I could not avoid testing it out to find out if they actually worked.
First to fall in my basket was the Highlight and Contour kit, priced at £8 – aesthetically this was pretty much the same as the KKW Beauty kit, it includes a contour stick duo, a highlight stick duo, a brow highlighter and pretty much the same double ended brush as the KKW kit. I also couldn’t resist the Nudes contour powder kit at £4, the highlight shade alone sold it to me, and the beautifully pigmented blusher was a real winner too.
I also picked up the lip collection at £4 which has 2 mattes and 2 gloss shades, and…you guessed it, was remarkably similar to the lip products it was inspired by. The formulation was really easy to wear, wasn’t cakey and set nicely. It also wears well, needing only to be reapplied a couple of times throughout the day. I really think one shade in particular will be making it into my summer essentials kit this year!
I filmed a full review of me testing out the PS Primark beauty range over on my YouTube channel, so definitely go and check that out for a full first impressions video. Overall I really like the collection, and of course it comes at a fraction of the price! I absolutely have to go back for the 28 pan eyeshadow collection – having watched other people’s reviews it looks incredible and I definitely have regret not allowing it to fall into my basket too! Have you tested out the new range? I’d love to know what you think!
