Primark Skincare – Testing and Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

Following on from my Poundland Make Up Look review, I thought I’d carry on this budget beauty series with these Primark skincare products. I’ve been trying them for a couple of weeks now, one of them actually featured in my September favourites here, so it might give you a good idea of what I think of them!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first product I tried was the Love to Glow Moisturiser, I have been using it (mostly) each morning and night and my skin feels so much better for it. This is the worst time of year for our skin because of the cold, windy weather and I really feel like this is an essential you need! It almost has a iridescent shine within it which helps with the ‘glow’ but doesn’t make you look shiny at all.

The other product I’ve been testing is the ‘Instant Radiance Serum’. I wasn’t exactly hoping for much considering it’s low price and Primark obviously don’t specialise in skincare products, but again this has really surprised me. In a way you could use this on it’s own without the moisturiser as a base as this is very moisturing in itself. But I like to use them together as this is still a brilliant primer to use before foundation.

It’s quite a thick consistency but it melts into the skin really quickly. In the same way as the moisturiser, it has a iridescent shine to it but much more obvious. This isn’t a problem for me because as my skin gets quite dry, I like products that give that ‘glowing from within’ look, but if you have oily skin this might be too much.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall at only £3.00 each, I’d definitely recommend you trying these out and I can’t wait to try some more Primark skincare products.

Are there any other budget beauty brands you’d like me to test and review? I can do make up looks with budget make up brands or more skincare reviews like this one. Please let me know in the comments!

Much Love,

Kylie Cosmetics First Impressions and HONEST Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

So about a month ago I made an order from Kylie Cosmetics. I’d never really bothered before because I’m not a huge fan of matte liquid lipsticks but when she released glosses, I knew I wanted to try them. It wasn’t until her birthday collection went live that I decided to see what I could get as it all looked so nice!

Unfortunately all of the eyeshadows and the metallic liquid lipstick from her birthday collection sold out super quickly but I managed to pick up Poppin’ Gloss and two of her original glosses, Posie K and Like. I was happy with my purchases as I thought I had a good range of colours to try out.

They arrived about two and a half weeks later which isn’t too bad considering they’ve come all the way from the US and the packaging is really pretty. They look super sleek, especially the gold on the Poppin’ Gloss and I was so excited to try them!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Delivery – Ok so when you initially order from Kylie Cosmetics you have to pay a delivery charge of $14.95 which is around £11, in my opinion this is ridiculously expensive for the sheer size of the products, does she need to send everything in a one size fits all big square box?

And then the big blow was when they actually got to the UK and I came home to find a card from the Post Office requiring me to pay £15.00 in customs charges… what a joke!! Customs charges is why I very rarely order from the US and this has put me off even more now.

But were the products actually worth the huge delivery costs..?!

In one word… No!

As i said before I picked up the following three colours;

Like

Posie K

Poppin’

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The applicator is a small brush which on ‘Like’ some of the bristles were actually bent which made it even harder to apply the product. The glosses themselves are so thick that the brush took too much of the product and I had to wipe a lot of it off around the stem of the tube and it really needs a better bottle to stop wastage of the gloss.

I think they would also really benefit from a doe foot type applicator rather than the brush, in the same way that I’ve seen from youtube etc that the matte liquid lipsticks have?! It would make it much easier to apply and give a more even finish.

The glosses are super pigmented which is good and the range of shades is really nice but because of the difficulty of application, I’d have to say my favourite is Poppin’. It’s a great gloss for a bit of sass on it’s own or paired with another lipstick underneath would work well for a statement lip. It’s also the least sticky out of all three because they all have a very sticky finish and would not do well outside with wind and long hair!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall I’m not hugely impressed; with the delivery charges and the glosses themselves, I think Kylie has a long way to go to perfecting her products. Obviously other people may think completely different to me and love them! But these are all my own honest opinions.

Much Love,

USA Sephora Beauty Haul

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

So as you know, I’m obsessed with make up! And when I was on my honeymoon and we got to explore parts of America, I knew I had to make the most of visiting Sephora in the USA! I had saved up money for a long time purely for this part of the trip, so you can see why I got so much!

I wanted to talk about each piece individually and my opinions on them but I just haven’t had time since we got back to test everything out! I’m sure some things I love will feature in my July favourites, but if you want to hear about anything in particular, then please comment below and i’ll let you know what I think!

I’ve linked all of the photos, so just click on it and it’ll take you straight to the product on the Sephora website!
