Primark Beauty Bargains..

I would never think to buy make-up from Primark, but having picked up a blusher brush from them the other day I've kept my eyes open when walking to the tills for any other bargains I may discover and discover I did!!!

First of all, I picked up this small domed highlighter. It was originally £2.50, reduced to 50p! I have quite dull skin, so it is always beneficial to find something that can lighten it up. When applied, it does become very powdery which I didn't expect but for 50p, I didn't expect wonders. Will definitely be using it throughout the summer though!

Next, I got a Montagne Jeunesse mud pack. With having extremely oily skin, mud packs are the perfect equivalent to a face park for me. So when I saw this one for only 90p I really could not resist! It is also supposed to be an anti-stress mud pack, which is great as I have been very stressed lately over all of my university deadlines!!

Saving the best til last, I picked up an eye shadow palette. It is in this beautiful floral box, and has 10 different shades in it. It includes a few pastel colours, as well as some classic neutral colours, with an applicator brush. All of the various eye shadows have also given cute names, which reminds me of the Urban Decay colours. They are not the thickest of shadows, so would definitely suggest using a primer, personally I like using Urban Decay's primer potion. However, they do blend really well so would be great for creating a new shade or maybe a pastel smoky eye!! Best of all, it was only £2!!! Couldn't believe my eyes!!

Have you guys found any beauty bargains in Primark that I need to look out for?? Let me know!!


  1. I've been wondering where to get those masks from! Everyone seems to have them don't they?? I don't want to miss the bandwagon, hehe.
