It seems as of late Primark Beauty has really been uping their game when it comes to their makeup and skincare releases. Their most recent release has got to be these new paint pots that I discovered while browsing their many stands looking for their new bronze and pink highlighter powders, which FYI I didn’t actually find. Now if I was to describe my thoughts on these products it can probably be stated in two words: IT’S COMPLICATED.
The paint pots themselves come in the typical packaging of a glass jar with twist on lid to ensure the product does not dry out. I, myself have three different shades of these paint pots however I’m not sure exactly how many colours were released overall. The first of these shades is possibly the only one out of the three that I can say a good thing about.
The colour of it is a nice subtle gold tone that is great for using as a base for powder eyeshadows. Personally I think this only works for me because of how light the shade colour is. The pigmentation of this shade, is intense on initial application but I find that it loses its shine and metallic finish the more I blend it out on the eye.
The second shade I have is this bronze shade that would be consider two tones darker than the gold shade above. I’m describing this shades more than giving you guys the names of them because unfortunately these don’t have any shade names or numbers to indicate what shade colour they are. You simply have to go by the colour visible through the glass jar and the sticker on the lid.
This bronze shade is ok…and I say that with a heavy heart as I can’t really find any other word to describe it. When you go to apply this, it gives such an incredible bronzey metallic shade but the minute you go to blend it out it loses that metallic shade and becomes a boring brown. Also I found as you blend it tends to become patchy and slightly ball up in the creases of the eye. Layering powders over it cause it to become overly chunky and crease in the exact same places where the creases are too.
The exact same thing can be said for this next shade which is meant to be an intense emerald green colour. This shade is even worse than the bronze because the end result of all your blending and applying is just a dark, patchy smudge on your eyelid. I honestly couldn’t make this work no matter how little nor how much I applied of it and blended. I event tried packing it and it just resulted in a lot of creasing on the eyelid.
These retail for just two euros a piece so I’m not bothered that they didn’t work for me as they are relatively inexpensive but I definitely don’t recommend them at all. These were a complete fail of a product and bar the golden shade which I honestly think only works for me because it’s so light of a colour, they are patchy unblendable products.
