I think we can all agree Primark has stepped up their game in terms of beauty/skincare products, unfortunately in Sligo we are always a little late to the new releases but to my surprise I came across this beauty last night. Let me be the first to say I was very skeptical about Primark beauty products at first but if you have any interest in makeup at all you need to try the products.
Their newest release is of course a Contour palette. This kit is €4 and contains a contour shade, two highlighting powders and a small tapered brush which will be perfect for contouring.
When I first opened the packaging I was very surprised at firstly it contained a brush and secondly the quality and steadiness of the kit itself, A matte black package very similar to many other higher end contour kits. Inside there is a big mirror and a picture tutorial on how to use the powders.
Now onto the powders, the contour shade is a medium cool toned brown which when swatched is very buttery and also not too pigmented which means it will be easy not to mess up and apply too much. I was really surprised at how buttery to swatch these powders are.
The middle highlighting powder is a peach toned powder with gold reflects running through it. I am again surprised at the quality and pigmentation, i like the fact that it is a peach toned highlighter rather than the normal champagne gold highlighter in most palettes.
The last powder is a light toned powder which is aimed at setting your concealer to give that natural highlighted appearance. I am looking forward to testing this out and seeing how long it actually sets my concealer for.
I will be using thus palette live over on my snapchat ➡️ keeleysomers later on today so if you would like to see my first impression head over there 💋 I will of course post the pictures at the end of this post once I have used it for those of you not on snapchat. Thank you for reading ❤
