Primark makeup | review/first impressions

Sooooo a few days ago (when you read this it will be more like over a week ago!) me, mumma bear and cousin Emily decided that we would venture out of our small town and travel a short distance to a slightly (very slightly) better town in favour of shopping. The only thing that makes this town any better is the fact they have a Primark! Its not even a very good Primark, but hey, Primark is Primark and I'm not complaining! 

I genuinely cannot remember the last time I went in to a Primark. I would like to say it was last year (which is probably true) but to be honest, I haven't got a clue. Because of this, and the fact I read so many blogs I'm always lusting over Primark things. 

I was surprised when I went in to see quite a large section of beauty kind of things. Beauty is not something Primark are known for at all, and I certainly haven't seen many posts about it which is surprising considering how much I loved what I got! 

I got a foundation egg thing, a lip gloss crayon and a lipstick. I think these were all either £1 or £1.50 but to be honest, at that price who cares! I just chucked them in my basket.

Obviously the Real Technique foundation egg have been around for a while now and everybody is absolutely loving them, but as I use my fingers to apply my foundation I didn't want to spend the money to be disappointed. I got this one just to try it out, and to be honest I can't say I've been too disappointed. Your paying for what your getting really, and as I haven't tried any other eggs I couldn't compare but I have been using this every day with good results!
The lipstick colour I picked up was a pinky colour. There were other colours but I'm in a massive 'pink lips' phase at the moment so this was defo the one for me, and I must tell you how happy I am with it! As you can see from the picture, its amazingly pigmented. When people say Primark, I think everybody thinks 'cheap and cheerful' and that you're defo paying for what your getting but I'm so happily surprised by this and I will 100% be trying more if I get the chance!
My mum got one of the crayons from a different Primark last year and she's absolutely worn it to death. She LOVED it so when I saw them in all different colours and textures I needed to get one. I went for a slight glitter sheen one, which I have been loving putting on top of lipsticks. It makes them just that little bit nicer!
