Primark Holographic Galaxy Lip Kit!

6th November 2017

Hey everyone!

I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to share trying out something I bought months ago and haven’t even so much has opened as I seem to do this a lot with products. I think it was more meant for festival season but I think this product in particular would also double up well as an experimental icy winter kind of look so now it’s November and it’s edging more towards being really bloody cold, it’s time to try it out!

The kit contains a lip liner, a lip gloss and a pot of glitter, all of which are deemed to be ‘holographic’. On the box, it says ‘holographic collection’ but unfortunately I don’t remember what other items were in the range when I picked it up but this was clearly the only one that was intriguing to me. At £3 for 3 products you can’t really go wrong but lets see how good quality they are…

Obviously applying the lip liner first, firstly around the edges and then lightly colouring in the rest of my lips just to give it a stronger base, I found it wasn’t really holographic, just a bit of satin lilac. The consistency is nice and creamy but I wouldn’t say it was the most flattering colour for the lips, personally I’d rather use it as an eyeliner!

After this I popped the gloss on top and found it to come out completely clear despite it looking really promising from the outside which is a shame but not the end of the world as the glitter is going to cover the colour of the gloss anyway.

Lastly, the glitter! I didn’t want it to go everywhere so I dabbed a cotton bud into the pot and then onto my lips to apply it which was a good call as I think I would’ve made quite a lot of mess otherwise. It applied quite nicely and looked good at first but after a few seconds went a bit patchy and it wasn’t sticking even nearly as well as I’d hoped. I didn’t keep it on for long so I can’t comment on its longevity but I imagine as soon as you’d start talking it’d all fall off or into your mouth (yuk!), it was easily removable though.

(These are about as good as I could get photo-wise!)

Overall I would not recommend this for the lips in all honesty, I think the products individually are nice but used for other things e.g. the lip liner as an eye liner, the gloss as a clear one to go over another lip liner/matte lip stick and the glitter for possibly an eye look or on the cheeks at a festival or party! I do absolutely love the glitter though, it’s got so many different colours in and it’s quite mesmerising!

This is actually the first Primark beauty product I’ve been a bit disappointed by so please don’t be put off by this review as they have some other fabulous things you can read about on my other posts here and here. Have you tried anything from Primarks beauty ranges?

’Til next time,

    It actually looks okay, and it’s perfect for Halloween maybe? x

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It definitely looked a lot worse in person without the good lighting, haha! Yeah I’ve heard of a lot of people using it for occasions! X

  2. Gemma says:

    I suppose this could be okay for a funky party or even Halloween but I see what you mean about the finish! But you can definitely tell it’s a cheap quality. I suppose you get what you’re given though for the price! The colour looks amazing, I do love that, agree that it’s definitely a winter feel.

      I just don’t know how someone could comfortably walk round and talk with a mouth covered in glitter, haha! X

  3. I totally agree i bought this and used it to create an ice queen look for halloween, but really I cant see it being something I use often for my lips! <3 xx

    Shame that you were disappointed, they look AMAZING! And your photos look really professional! Love seeing someone write an honest review rather than lying to get noticed by the brand! x

      Aww thank you so much! It looked a lot more weird in person I just wanted to get an interesting photo for on here haha! I’ll never post good things about a product I think is awful! X

  5. Lily says:

    Every time I’ve gone into Primark I stare at this, hoping it might be amazing. It’s such a shame the product doesn’t work as intended to. But glad you will find ways to use it, as the glitter is gorgeous!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      I hate throwing stuff away I’m such a hoarder so I’m sure I’ll find something to use it where it works a lot better! X

  6. Eli cole says:

    It’s sad the product is not good. The look is pretty crazy…definitely for the Buenos Aires night would be a 100% success!! ????

  7. The colour is gorgeous, and I could definitely see myself using this at a festival or at an event, but it’s definitely not an everyday look.. ???‍♀️ I wore glitter on my lips for Halloween, and it’s the most stressful and drying thing in the entire world! ??

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Haha yeah I totally agree, I’ll still find a way to use the products just not how they were intended to be… Yeah it just gets everywhere and in your mouth and bleh! X

  8. Emma says:

    It’s a shame they weren’t brilliant. That glitter though! I love, love, love that photo of the lips! So sparkly! x

  9. Alice says:

    It looks so cool in the photos! It’s a shame that the lip colour isn’t more pigmented because it’d look so amazing. I still haven’t tried any Primark Beauty products but I really need to, I’ve heard such fab things x


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Thanks girl! Yeah I thought that, It’d be a really nice topper for a matte lipstick I thought! You do really need to, especially being a budget beauty queen yourself! X

  10. Heather Nixon says:

    It looks pretty! I haven’t tried any Primark makeup x

  11. Alicia says:

    Oh wow this looks gorgeous! I love the shade and the glitter! And it’s only £3 how good! I wouldn’t wear it out but I would love to use it to experiment looks with xx

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It honestly looked a lot weirder in person haha, I just wanted to get a good photo for on here! It’s fun to experiment with but I would not recommend! Xx

  12. Chloe says:

    These things always look so cool but I do wonder about the practicality of them! It’s a shame you were disappointed as the glitter does look really pretty!

  13. Mollie says:

    Loved this post, it looks so good on the photos! X

  14. It’s a shame this product didn’t work for you because it does look promising! I’ve never purchased any beauty bits from Primark before, but I know a lot of their stuff is pretty good. I love the look of that glitter though – super sparkly and holographic xo

      I know I was a bit gutted, what can you expect from gloss and glitter though it’s kind of like 13 year old paradise, haha! X

  15. Emma Drury says:

    As amazing as your photos look I agree a product like this sounds better suited for eye-makeup. I couldn’t stand the texture of it on my lips for long!

  16. Chloe says:

    I can see what you mean about the finish, I always think Primark makeup is great for testing out colours you aren’t sure if you’ll suit because it’s not breaking the bank, these lip kits would be amazing for Halloween and Christmas time!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Never thought of it like that but you’re right! They do super affordable stuff so that’d be a great idea! X

  17. Chloe says:

    It’s a shame that you weren’t overly impressed by this product and that it didn’t seem to last for too long but the glitter does look really cool. Maybe it’s more suitable for a fancy dress occasion? xx

  18. Kayleigh Zara says:

    It a shame that this product didn’t really work for you and you weren’t so impressed with it as it actually looked pretty good in the box x

    Kayleigh Zara ?

  19. Julia says:

    I kept seeing it in store but just couldn’t bring myself to buy it! I’m not really a Halloween person so I would literally have nothing to wear it for. I don’t think it’s just my kind of makeup look. It looks quite good in the photos! Shame it doesn’t stay on that well and the glitter falls off. Always room for improvement!

    Julia xx

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Yeah it was a disappointment so I wouldn’t really recommend it but good it was only £3 and was quite interesting to try! Xx

  20. Leslie says:

    Woah look at all that glitter there! It looks so amazing and fun! Would love to see a look with that makeup!

  21. Anu says:

    This sounds really interesting! I think it looks great too, maybe for Halloween? Otherwise I’d definitely use this on the eyes or something like you said :)x

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      I think it’d definitely be better for the eyes, I don’t think I’d be able to stand it on my lips for more than 5 minutes! X

  22. Kate says:

    It’s such a shame about the longevity and it coming off when you speak etc as the overall look is amazing and really effective in the photographs 🙂


  23. Joyce Lau says:

    It’s not that bad but I wouldn’t purchase it after this haha ?

  24. Rachael says:

    Oh wow this looks really cool! I wish I had the guts to try something like this. I think your photos make it look really amazing but it’s a pity you don’t think it’s practical!

  25. Jade Mayhead says:

    I actually seen this a whole back and debating whether to purchase or not, so glad I didn’t! It was only going to be for a bit of fun, but even still, it doesn’t seem to be worth it!
    It was the lip gloss that done it for me, it looks absolutely beautiful in the packaging! Such a shame it doesn’t look as good on the lips?
