Although I hadn’t tried anything from the original Primark PS Beauty range I was still pretty excited to try the new PS Pro range. It’s their more premium makeup range which they claim is their ‘first high performing beauty range’- big claims so naturally I had to put it to the test.
The press release said ‘Pro is a high quality, advance and technical range aimed at those of us who want to take their makeup regime to the next level’ but since everything was under £5 I was really excited to try it all so here are my thoughts…
Things to skip…
Concealer Palette- just too dry!
Longwear lip Liner Pen- Lip pencils are pencils for a reason, I just don’t understand why you’d use a pen.
Lip Primer- Literally awful, it just broke!
Liquid Eyeliner- Basically like applying your eyeliner with a blunt crayon as it’s so fat.
Things to consider…
Longwear CC Corrector- There aren’t too many affordable colour correctors out there so it’s great that this one is so easily available. I found it too green on me and made my skin a little cakey but I think it might actually work on someone that has a lot of redness.
Miracle Pencil- Great nude pencil to highlight cupids bow, inner corner of the eye or line the bottom lash line.
HD Eyebrow Pens- Not too sure what’s HD about them, bare in mind that they’re a little warm, so skip these if you like your brows achy like I do. If you do pick these up then be sure to use a light had and build up your brows slowly as they can look a little unnatural.
Finishing Powder- nothing groundbreaking but it’s nice and does what you want it to.
HD Mascara- It’s a little clumpy but it does add volume and lift, not my favourite mascara but definitely not the worst!
Things to try…
The foundations- I’m not saying this is as good as Chanel and Nars but it’s also 1/6 of the price at just £5. It has decent coverage, better than highstreet shade range and I think would work particularly well on dryer skins.
Illuminating Primer- I can’t really comment on the other primers as I haven’t tried them but the illuminating one if surprisingly good! I don’t think it really prolonged the longevity of my makeup but my skin look more radiant and healthy with this on.
Lipsticks- The lighter shades are beautiful and would highly recommend but if you don’t like non-matte bold lips then avoid these as they aren’t matte.
Pro Universal Lip Pencil- If you like to keep quite a minimal makeup bag then this is a great product to go for and actually a product which is quite difficult to find from other brands.
Lip Glosses- I find that all glosses fade so there is rarely any reason to spend extra ££ on them, again I like nude glosses but would happily wear any of these.
Overall, the range is a little hit and miss but since everything is under £5 you can experiment without a huge investment which is great! Have you tried anything from the new PS Pro Range?
