REVIEW | Primark Nudes Collection


Primark has a makeup collection. 

I pass it every single time I'm in a Primark, always tempted to purchase but never do. Until today. When I stormed into my local Primark and found their latest Nudes Collection. The cashier looked impressed, and perhaps even shocked, with my bag.

So it begs the question, how is Primark makeup?



While I wish I could have purchased everything instore, I only got a handful from each section. Hopefully, enough of a range to encapsule the whole collection.

Primark Nudes Collection launched in February 2018, packaged in neutrals with a focus on natural brown and pink hues. Certain products remind me of KKW Beauty and Milk Makeup. You can definitely tell their collection is lower cost version of those expensive 'natural & nude' brands.

HIGHLIGHTERS & BLUSH & CONTOUR


NUDES HIGHLIGHT & CONTOUR KIT : 

This kit is most reminiscent of KKW Beauty Sticks. It came with a Highlighter Duo Stick, a Contour Duo Stick, Brow Highlighter and a double-ended brush and sponge.

The Highlighter Duo Stick was not universal. One end was too dark for me. The other end matched my exact skin tone with some shimmer. The Contour Duo Stick was surprising. I used both ends on my skin because it ended up blending lighter than I expected. Applies dark, but blends most colour away.

In this collection, I prefer the brush since it blended the contour evenly and feels soft against the skin, blending well.

NUDES HIGHLIGHTER STICK :

It looks like an almost exact dupe for Milk Makeup. It swatched beautiful, a light nude with a pink glittery sheen. However, it clung to the skin, making it difficult to blend out.

NUDES BODY SHIMMER DUST :

Perhaps my favourite, simply because it surprised me. An off-white shimmery loose powder. If pressed, I'd use it as my everyday highlight but if applied on darker skin, it would wash them out.

NUDES CONTOUR PALETTE :

Consists of two highlighters, a contour, and blush. An overall okay palette, their highlighters (Polar and Pure) aren't blinding. Instead, they give a subtle glow to the skin. The contour (Reveal) looked dark on the pan but once applied, blended to a warm bronze shade. I think the winner is their blush (Exposed) that gave a nice pink flush.

EYES


NUDES MATTE EYE CREAM in WHIPPED :

I applied the Matte Eye Cream as a base for the eyeshadow palette. What I assumed would be off-white looked grey against my skin. It was creamy but once blended, dried down to a matte finish. I wouldn't reccommended it since the grey cast was prominent. 

NUDES EYESHADOW COLLECTION PALETTE :

This looks like it came from a child's toy makeup collection with cheap, breakable packaging. That said, I am dumbfounded by their eyeshadows. They consist of 28 shades for £8, making it 28p per shade. And the strangest part?

They're actually good.

I used different shades from the palette, each time impressed with the colour pay off and how it blended together. And for 28p a shade, what a steal.

LIPS

NUDES MATTE & GLOSS LIP COLLECTION :


Their Matte & Gloss Lip Collection consists of two glosses and mattes. The mattes and glosses were pigmented, with one swipe enough for the full efect. While the mattes did dry down, they didn't dry out my lips which impressed me. The glosses were fine on their own, but I prefered them as toppers to other lipsticks.

NUDES HIGH SHINE LIP GLOSS in MESMERIZE :


A £2 product feeling like a £6. Their lip liner and gloss reminded me of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, with their smell and application. Though High Shine Lip Gloss is (obviously) a gloss. It pulled pinker than I assumed from the packaging. It still applied smoothly and wore on for some time.

Overall, I am impressed with this collection. 

Their eyeshadows and lipsticks, being the most note-worthy. For the price, they work much better than what I expected. As for their highlighters and contours, I prefered their pressed powders since their cream kits aren't universal. 

If you're still learning makeup and looking for some quality products in your Primark, pick up the Nudes. They get a thumbs up from me.
