Primark’s PS… makeup collection continues to impress me and when I saw their latest offering I went out looking for it – thankfully I did not have to look for too long.
The PS…Get Lippy Matte Collection lip kit contains a matte liquid lipstick and matching lip pencil.
I picked up the shade Chocolate Brownie because it’s a brown and I’m obsessed with browns, if you didn’t already know!
Now, the first thing I noticed about this lip kit was the price…£3…£3! Can any good come from a beauty product priced £3? We shall see.
The pencil and the liquid lipstick were fine on first appearance, nothing too fancy, both indicated the colour of the lipstick and lip pencil you were recieving.
Upon testing out the pencil I found it to be the waxy, creamy type of lip pencil which is the type I like, the pencil itself was plastic, so if you’re not a fan of plastic cased pencils, you may want to avoid, as for me, I don’t really care as they are still pretty easy to sharpen. The colour was a warm chocolate brown which looked promising!
Application was a little different, I found, as with most pencils, you need to moisturise your lips first, I didn’t do this so the pencil tugged a little bit but nothing too bad.
What also surprised me was the colour, the pencil was no longer a warm chocolate brown, but a very cool toned brown, for this reason I don’t think I can use this a lip liner for the rest of my nude shades.
I was also surprised by the consistency of the liquid lipstick, it’s the watery type, which is the type I like, these tend to be the most comfortable for me and remind me of my favourite liquid lipsticks from Makeup Monsters. The shade once again came out as a very cool toned brown but thankfully it didn’t wash me out. Since this is a liquid lipstick, it dried down very quickly and dried to a very comfortable and soft matte formula but I would recommend moisturising your lips before you apply as I can see this drying out your lips over the course of the day.
I cant comment on longevity as I’m to wear this out but for £3 I am really really REALLY impressed!
I’ve been a fan of the Primark lip range for a while now and this is no exception! An entire lip kit for £3? Yes please! I’m definitely going to be on the hunt for the other shades available!
Well done Primark!
You should be able to find this lip kit and more from Primark’s with a beauty section, I purchased mine from the Tottenham Court Road branch.
