Perfect nude lips for under £1 // Primark PS… Lipstick // Bargain beauty

Every time I step foot into Primark, I am immediately drawn to their ever-expanding makeup and beauty collection. With everything from cute travel essentials, to a huge range of makeup basics, if you’re a beauty lover like me, it’s easy to bypass the clothes and head straight to these bargainous beauty goodies! On my last visit to Primark, I was particularly drawn to their newly revamped range of lipsticks. At just 80p, I had to restrain from buying every single colour they had available!

Yep, 80p lipsticks from Primark that are seriously good…

‘In the buff’ and ‘Rosewood Mauve’

Packaged up in suspiciously MAC-like bullets, the PS Beauty lipsticks are weirdly so nice to hold in your hand, particularly the matte shades which are housed in a silky, grippy case. Retailing at just 80p they’re cheap too, but this doesn’t mean they’re rubbish – quite the opposite in fact. On a side note, they also smell like Glossier’s ‘Cake’ lip balm if you’ve ever tried that! YUM!

I wish we had decent quality makeup available like this when I was a lot younger because you can really create some wearable looks without breaking the bank these days. The quality of cheaper makeup is getting more and more competitive.

The shade I’m wearing above is from the PS Beauty ‘Lustre’ collection which is super comfortable to wear on the lips. The colour is called ‘Rosewood Mauve’ and is a gorgeous purple, lilac nude. I don’t believe that the lighting in the pics above does the shade the full justice it deserves, don’t worry it’s not a ‘Heather Shimmer’ type shade, it’s flatter in tone and more red. This has been my go-to everyday shade as it’s perfect for all occasions – ideal for giving your lips a little somethin’-somethin’ without making too much of a statement.
From the matte collection, I have ‘In the Buff’ (lol) a gorgeous purple toned, brown nude that is completely matte in the formulation and I must admit, a little drying. I definitely recommend wearing a matte lip balm such as Carmex underneath to give a bit of slip to apply. The staying power is pretty darn good and the pigment is intense enough to show up on the first application.  Again, for 80p you can’t really go wrong!
