PS…Beauty Priming Oil

I really used to be the type of girl that would walk into Primark (Pennys here in Ireland) and never be caught dead checking out their makeup or beauty products because to be quite frank they were crap. Things have definitely changed and they are constantly upping their game with every single new release they bring out in stores. One of these new releases is their PS…#InstaGirl Priming Oil and the main reason I wanted to try this is because I’ve never had a primer in the form of an oil before.

The oil itself is what I would consider to be a dry oil. It doesn’t have that greasy feeling that some oils do and it absorbs into the skin relatively quickly. That said it did feel slight heavy on my skin but I definitely liked the instant glow it gave. I did try applying this primer a number of ways; first I did the go ole fashion way by popping three to four drops onto the fingers and pressing it into the skin. This way worked like a dream and I did find that my foundation looked nice and dewy all throughout the day without any fading or patchiness.

The second way I tried applying was by adding it and mixing it in with my foundation. This way actually got rid of the heavy feeling of it on my skin, however I only recommend you do this with a matte finish or velvet finish foundation as a dewy finish will cause you to look like a grease ball by the end of the day and nobody wants that!

I have to say I really like this primer, it does the job exactly how it says it will on the packaging. My only complaint is the packaging, its in a glass bottle! Pretty to look at but not the easiest to travel with at all. Furthermore I think the bottle should be just a tad bit bigger. You only get 20mls of product whereas most primers come in either 30ml tube or 50ml tubes.

This primer retailed for 6 euros so it isn’t expensive but it’s also not the cheapest in Primark stores that’s for sure. Let me know if you’ll be picking this up to try or if you have other recommendations for primers.

    1. Oh you need to have a look in stores, they have some amazing stuff lately. Try going to one that’s not as popular because you’re less likely to have messy stands and can actually see the products for what they are x
