If you follow me on snapchat (@putting_it) you would have seen me try out the Primark matte liquid lipstick kit in Chocolate Brownie. I came back during the evening to show you how it was holding up against eating and drinking. If you saw the snaps, I am sure you will have an idea how this review will go; yet I will write it anyway 😉
If I am honest I was not expecting much from the kit; I mean it cost €4! I found it randomly on a shelf in my local Penneys so I bought it; It felt like a sign and I like a dark coloured lip!
The kit itself comprises of the a soft lip liner and a matte liquid lipsticks. For this post I am going to cover the positives and the negatives of both the lip liner and the lipstick.
Primark Matte Liquid Lipstick Kit – The Details
The lip liner was soft and easy to work with.
I also really liked the applicator on the liquid lipstick; the perfect shape which made it easy to apply.
The colour is right up my street and would have been a makeup staple if the formulation was better!
It was also comfortable to wear, not overly drying.
That my friends is where the positives end!
To which there are many, I am afraid to report!
The lip liner is just too soft and slightly crumbles when the matte liquid lipstick is applied over it. It also did not stop the lipstick bleeding after a few minutes of application.
The liquid lipstick applies patchy and is quite noticeable in natural day light. As my lips don’t match on either side, I have to slightly overdraw and the lipstick just did not cover it. If anything it made my lips look even stranger then when they don’t match Lol.
Initially the transfer was minimal; so much so, I couldn’t pick it up on my camera. However, the minute I had a cup of coffee it just kind off melted away at each sip. I live on coffee so it was never going to work for me!
Keeping it real
At the end of the day, it cost €4 so I was never expecting miracles. Penneys can get some things so right and others not so much. This would have to fall into the latter category.
Have you tried it yet? Do you agree?
Until Next Time
