Primark Skin Care Range | Review

This blog post has been a long time coming, but finally I am getting around to doing my full review on Primark’s skin care range. I will admit, I had my doubts about doing this review but I realized that I started this blog to share my thoughts and therefore I should be honest, so that’s what I’m going to do.

Before we begin, don’t forget that I currently have a giveaway over on my Instagram so be sure to go and enter for a chance to win!

My first ever blog post was a first impressions on this range and can be read here if anyone is interested. Some backstory on my skin; it is extremely sensitive and I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to put the products on my skin, but most seemed to go well. Opinions have changed since I wrote that and started to use those products more, and without any further rambling, we’ll begin!

PS Love To Glow

First up is the PS Love To Glow face mask. When I first took this out of the box, I was apprehensive,  the colour really made me feel uneasy but eventually, I pushed past and used the product. It felt surprisingly nice, but as I began to use it more I realized that my skin was drying out, and around my nose started to crack. As you can imagine, it was terrifying and after a matter of eliminating every product used on my skin, it came down to this one and I stopped using it right away.

Now, up until my skin started to crack, I actually quite liked this. It felt really nice on the skin and it had a lovely, subtle scent but I would recommend to anyone with sensitive skin to steer clear of this, as it did affect me in such a bad way. It may have only been my skin it reacted bad with however, so keep this in mind.

PS Easy On The Eyes & Lovely And Bubbly

I knew from the first time I used the PS Lovely & Bubbly face wash that we wouldn’t get along. The scent was very lovely, but so overpowering that it irritated my skin after the second time I used it. Therefore in my first impressions I said I would not be trying this out to review it as it was messing with my skin. It’s a shame though, as it did do an amazing job at giving my face a really good clean.

In my first impressions the PS Easy On The Eyes was my firm favourite. Like I said, I love finding inexpensive makeup removers, so I was super happy about this. The only complaint I had was that it was the slightest bit oilier than other makeup removers but I was quite happy.

Now however, I’m not a huge fan. Basically, after the first few weeks, the same thing happened with this as did the face mask. Except it was around my eyes that began to crack. Not attractive. I was pretty disappointed that it was reacting bad with my skin, but of course, I stopped using it. Apart from that, it was great. Would I recommend it? Not really.

PS Face The Day

The last item that I tried out is the PS Face The Day moisturizer. In my first impressions I was unsure of this product because I was worried the scent would irritate my skin, but this actually turned out to be my favourite product that I tried out. It’s oil free with cucumber and witch hazel and is so light weight. It honestly feels like nothing is on my face. And the packaging is absolutely adorable.  I feel like this would suit all skin types but if you have a problem with overly scented things, then stay away.

Naked 3 vs Nude Eyes | Dupes

I know I have been completely awol for like the past month, which I completely apologise for. It has been hectic, my new site is on hold and it’s just been a mess. But, I’m back & I also still have 25% off Mikasa Beauty- not only there brushes but everything on their site!

If you are interested visit http://www.mikasabeauty.com and use the code Chloeantonia25 at the checkout!

So I think I may have found a dupe for the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. I know, everyone has a dupe for this, but I don’t think I’ve seen this one floating around anywhere.

The palette in question is actually from Primark and is from their PS collection. It is called nude eyes and I cannot remember where I got this, at all. I definitely didn’t buy it myself, but I found it & swatched it and thought this looks hella similar.

Best part about this? It’s only €5, guys in Ireland the Naked palettes go for about €45, you can save yourself so much money.

Nude Eyes has ten eye shadows, whereas Naked 3 has 12. Ive narrowed it down and the two shadows that seem to be missing are Limit and Burnout. Every other shadow is there from Dust to Blackheart & they are pretty bang on if you ask me. I will be doing swatches and comparisons over on Snapchat which is misschloetoni & also on Instagram which is the same handle!

So what do you think? Will you be rushing out to buy Nude Eyes? Leave me know in the comments below. If you enjoyed please follow my (m blog so you never miss a post. Xx

 

March Favourites | Favourites

I know we have not yet reached the end of March, however, I feel that any product I fall in love with between now and April probably would be better suited in my April favorites, so, I don’t feel as guilty about being a week early.

Honestly, this month I wasn’t loving as many products as I usually would. Money was short this month as I’m just your typical broke nineteen-year-old and I didn’t do much shopping. In fact, most of my favorites this month were products I had purchased months prior and completely forgot about, you know, as you do. So without further ado, here are my March Favourites.

Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette.

I’ve had my eye on this palette for so, so long and I don’t actually know why it took me so long to get round to buying it, but of course, I’m behind in everything so naturally it took me longer than everyone else.

I adore this palette, particularly the shade ice queen and sculpt (if you’re a fellow pale skinned creature you’ll appreciate these shades) It’s not an overly powdery palette, in my opinion, the shades are all easy to blend, smooth and extremely pigmented.

The only thing that annoys me about this product is how flimsy the packaging feels. I’m never home on weekends so I get the train twice a week and I’ve never been able to leave home without placing the product back in its box because I’m so scared it’ll fall apart. But aside from that, I bloody love this. You can purchase the palette here.

Soap & Glory Love At First Blush.

This was a product that I recently discovered hiding in my makeup collection and have no memory buying, but it was a great find. My shade is in Pink, Pop & Pearl and it is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever laid eyes on. Soap & Glory win when it comes to packaging every time but the inside product is a shimmering dream. Of course, because it is so shimmery, it doubles as a highlight (unless you’re me because I like to glowwww) so it’s really a two in one type product.

As for how the product actually performs, it’s amazing, again, so blendable, buildable and not powdery at all. Not to mention how affordable it is. Soap & Glory are honestly my favourite drug store brand, You can purchase the blush here.

No7 Airbrush Away Primer

I’ve been on the lookout for a good, affordable primer for some time now & I think I’ve finally found what I’m looking for. This primer promises to fade the appearance of wrinkles and minimise pores, and although I can’t vouch on the wrinkle promise, I can definitely vouch on the minimising of pores. It fills in pores like nothing I’ve ever used before and is also really lightweight. The moisturising feel you get when applying is amazing and is probably one of my favourite things about the primer. The packaging is beautiful; simple and very classy, just what I love. You can buy the primer here and I would highly recommend doing so.

Naked 3 Palette

This is something I recently fell in love with all over again after it became lost in my collection and that is, of course, the very well known Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. Naked 3 has always been my favourite naked palette & I’m so glad I’m using it again. The shades are buttery and soft and blend out amazing. In my opinion, it is well worth the price as the palette itself lasts a long time & with the right primer, the shadows last for ages as well. The shades are beautiful, anything pinky toned I love and the packaging is fabulous. I’m not going to go on any more about this because I’m sure everyone knows about the palette by now. You can purchase it here.

Essence Long Lasting Lipstick & Liner

The last item on my favourite list that I’ll be speaking about is Essence long lasting lipstick in number 13 and lip liner in 12 wish you were here.Essence is one of my absolute adorn drugstore brands. The pricing is fabulous, the packaging is super cute & the quality of the products is amazing. Their lipsticks have always been a love of mine so it came as no surprise to me that this one has become a staple in my makeup bag. The shade is beautiful cool toned pink that glides across your lips so easily. What I love most is how buttery and long lasting these lipsticks are. As for the liner, I’ve bought liners from the drugstore that are super scratchy, but that’s not the case with Essence liners. Again, they’re smooth and long lasting and the shade range is amazing. You can find the products here.
