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!
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?
