primark pr pro

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…

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.

primark ps pro green correctorThings 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!

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?

 It’s hard to believe since it rained to heavily (and was so cold) the whole of yesterday but we actually had some lovely weather here in London on the weekend. I had a few new bits which I was looking forward to wearing and felt that the nice weather would be a great reason to do so.

I’ve been trying to get myself out of jeans and was browsing the internet for some shift dresses that I could wear with tights when I came across this pinafore which caught my attention. The fact that it’s black appealed to me instantly, I like the length of the skirt, especially as it’s getting a little colder and I have nothing like this in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect dress to take you from summer to autumn (which starts tomorrow!) and I’m looking forward to playing around and layering it over jumpers when the weather gets a little colder.

This time I put it over this very pretty and easy to wear Zara T-shirt, it’s nothing too fancy but I think that the pattern is almost lace like and makes it more versatile.

My shoes were also a recent purchase which you may have seen in my recent Primark Haul (link here), I love Primark heels as I find them very comfortable and of course quite inexpensive too. I love these as I’m really into both lace-up and pointy heels- and these are both! I wore this for quite a while this day and they were no different to my previous Primark heels, very comfy but also really pretty- and all for £14! Along with the shoes, my jacket is also Primark (£25)- it’s a great colour, inexpensive and perfect for this type of in-between weather.

My Parfois bag was a holiday purchase and although I usually sling if over my shoulder I instead opted to tuck in the handle and wear it as an oversized clutch. These Quay glasses also pretty much haven’t left my face for the past few months and I’m sad that the summer sun is disappearing away and sooner or later these will have to put away too…

 I’m almost embarrassed to share these two pictures, I mean I actually have practiced my pose so much that it almost looks like I copied and pasted myself into a different location. It’s hard to believe that ten days ago it was actually a beautiful day and today we have had rain non-stop all day.

I had a family event to attend and wanted something semi-formal and since it was such a beautifully sunny day I decided to go for this green dress and clashing pink shoes. I bought the dress for just £13 from Primark after falling in love with the colour and paired it with these pink shoes which I also bought from Primark for exactly the same reason. To tie it all together I wore a MAC lipstick in Girl About Town which is one of my favourite bold lips.

What do you think of Pink and Green together? How would you style this green dress?

The Borujois Magic Nail Polish remover quickly made it’s way into the beauty blogger’s favourites and I personally stopped using anything else on my hands. However I had to keep a bottle of nail polish remover handy for my toes (can you imagine sticking your toes in?!). However just in time for sandal season Bourjois have released a new Magic Remover that you can use not only for your hand but also come with a sponge for your toes.
The new Hands & Feet version has the same acetone-free formula with a vanilla and red fruit fragrance and sweet almond oil to nourish the nails. You simply press the sponge on your toe nails, hold for a few seconds and the nail polish is gone. I haven’t used anything else since getting my hands on this, it’s just so easy to use!

A while back I also picked up the Love Your Nails Instant Removal Pot from Primark, at just a pound I thought it would be rude not to try it. Although I think it does a great job removing nail polish quickly and efficiently I felt my nails were far more dry, meaning I have since gone back to the Bourjois one.

Bourjois Nail Polish Remover for Hands & Feet is currently exclusive to BeautyMart and retails for £6

 Although I love Jumpsuit’s on other people I can never seem to find one that fits me perfectly, I recently discovered this one from Lavish Alice. I love the colour, the material is very light and I think the cut at the top with the spaghetti straps is particularly attractive. I did find that is is still a little short but I can just about get away with it however after wearing it for a couple of hours it became very static and started to cling to every inch of my body (as you can see above isn’t very flattering) which has never ever happened to me and washing it hasn’t helped. I was really looking forward to wearing it during the summer so I’d love some tips on how to stop this happening if anyone has any?

Accessories wise I kept it quite simple with some strappy Primark Sandals and gold hops. My glasses are a new pair from Triwa and are the Midnight Thelma Oversized design which I actually thought would be slightly bigger. That aside I love the shape and colour but it’s the barely noticeable pink tips that really finish these glasses in my opinion and at only £52 from MyBag.com I think they’re actually quite affordable. 
As it was Easter I also felt it was only fair that my Gold Plated Jana Reinhardt Bunny Rabbit Necklace also get an outing. I absolutely love this, the chains quite dainty but the bunny is so adorable and I received so many compliments on it. Finally I also wore my new Gold Plated, Arrow ring from Kris Nations at Cadenzza which has really led me to want to purchase a few more better quality rings as my normal ones from H&M simply fade too quickly. I also love that this is a little more unique and a little more special and all for just £28.

 Watch is Michael Kors… as always.

Which was your favourite outfit that you wore over the Bank Holiday?
