This week I was lucky enough to get to attend the Primark Autumn/Winter preview, and of course I got plenty of photos of all the beauty bits for you to take a look at. Get ready for a proper brush range, setting sprays, new eyeshadows and loads more, all at pocket money prices.
Some of the items below are already in stores (I’ll tell you if they are). But you’re going to want to get a heads up on some of the new products coming out soon. I’m not sure on prices/release dates for them but I’ll try and find out!
Now, I’m sorry but HOW GOOD do these look? Primark have put out brush collections before, but they’ve tended to be a glittery 5 brush kit aimed at beginners. This set is definitely meant for a more grown-up consumer, and fingers crossed they’ll all be available to purchase separately, so we can slot them into our collection.
I think the high street is missing somewhere you can buy affordable brushes in person – so I’m definitely excited for these. They all seemed to be synthetic (great for vegans) and they felt pretty soft!
The flathead contour brush looks a lot like the NARS Ita brush (£43), and the duo blending brush looks really close to the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe no 7 brush (£35) which I actually own and am OBSESSED with.
Also, just to note that there were 18 different brushes on show at the preview, but we’re missing a few numbers (there’s no 104 or 105 for example) so hopefully this means that there are even more on their way!
I mean, need I say any more, dupes-wise?
I think the primer water, and the matte and radiant primers are all already available at Primark, but the eyeshadow primer and setting sprays are new. I’d definitely be interested in seeing how they compare to their more expensive lookalikes!
As far as I can tell this is a new product, I’ve found someone on an Irish blog reviewing something that looks similar, but it seems to be a different colour. It’s obviously trying to dupe MAC’s strobe cream (£25), and it’s bound to be less than a fiver, so it’s probably worth a shot.
I can’t see these on the website, so they must be new. The colours look great for winter, and yes, we know it isn’t even summer yet! We didn’t get on so well with Primark eyeshadows the last time they were reviewed on this blog, but hopefully they’ve improved the formula since then.
Watch out Kylie Cosmetics, Primark is bringing out a LIPSTICK VAULT! We’ve got no idea how much this is going to cost but it says SS18 on it, so it should be coming into stores any minute now. I wish we’d been able to swatch, some of those nudes look pretty nice.
Primark have had their version of a Lip Kit for a little while now, but I’ve never seen a set with two minis and one lipliner before. It’s definitely a good idea, because who has ever used up a whole liquid lipstick before? They’ve also got boxes of four minis – a nude edit, day to night and the peach edit.
These are already on the website for £3 each, and they look seriously blinding.
So, what did you think? Are you going to be picking up any of these new makeup releases from Primark?
