I love finding a bargain. And have been eyeing Primark’s new -ish- beauty range for a while. Whilst everything looks really pretty and they have a big selection of products, I’ve been wary. It’s easy to fall into the trap of buying cheaper makeup for the sake of it. And I’ve heard mixed reviews of the quality. Whilst browsing for a new onsie I could cram my bump into, I noticed their magical looking brush sets. And had to have a closer look. I apply my highlighter with a MAC 129 brush as it’s more precise. Or my Zoeva fan brush, which is tiny in comparison to these chunkier fan brushes which have been popping up everywhere.
I really wanted to try one after seeing a demo at the Eyes On Spectrum blogger event. And have to admit, I thought it would look fab in my brush pot, as they’re so pretty!
Primark have a few different sets but these petrol coloured brushes stood out to me.
At £6 this brush is slightly cheaper than it’s competitors. It feels as though the fibres are synthetic to me, but I’ve been thus far unable to clarify. So I sadly can’t confirm if it’s vegan or not. However Primark Beauty are a cruelty free brand.
One swipe covers my cheekbone in powder and I absolutely love the results
The bristles are super soft and as a result not very firm. Although the way the bristles are packed and the sheer volume of them mean the brush holds it’s shape well. And is really dense.
Unlike my Zoeva fan brush which is a lot thinner, this brush collects a lot of product. One swipe covers my cheekbone in powder and I absolutely love the results. The softness of the brush gives a natural application, but a bolder highlight. To achieve this with the smaller fan brush I am used to using, I have to go over a few times. Which I find can end up highlighting unwanted texture.
I have to admit, I’ve been blown away with the quality of this brush
I have to admit, I’ve been blown away with the quality of this brush. And I’m now curious to try some of the makeup in the Primark Beauty range. This was a fun way to try something new, without committing to a more expensive purchase. I’ll definitely be adding more Primark Beauty brushes to my collection.
If anyone needs me, I’ll be doing my best glowworm impression.
