Hello babes! I was at Primark a while ago and noticed they have a lot of super cheap beauty products so obviously I wondered whether they are any good, I tried some products out and reviewed them!
The first thing that caught my eye were these Duo Sticks, one is contour and has a lighter shade and a darker one, the other stick is a blush and highlight combo. I had never seen a product like this so I was very intrigued.
I have to be honest, these sticks are horrible. The cream texture is too thick and heavy on the skin. It’s not blendable at all, if you use this over a layer of foundation, the foundation just comes right off while blending (even when using a beautyblender). It looked awful on my skin and I took off my makeup immediately, most of the product stuck to my beautyblender and wasn’t easy to wash out.
I picked up 3 eyeshadows because they are so cheap, I really regret buying the green one because I’ll probably never use it. These aren’t very pigmented and they don’t blend very well. The golden eyeshadow is actually a pretty highlight and the pink one could be used as a blush if it were a little more blendable because it’s quite bright.
I’ll try these out a little more, maybe with a wet brush but they’re not very good at all. The green shade isn’t a pretty colour on the skin either. I’m definitely keeping the golden eyeshadow as a highlight.
Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows.
