“ Brand: Primark / Makeup Type: Eyeshadows / Type: Eyeshadows / Suitable for: Eye „
Bought this for one pound from primark last year. Its black one side and white on the other,. The white side takes a lot of rubbing it to get any on your applicator let alone getting it onto your eye. However the black side goes onto applicator and eyes easily without any hassle. I still have the white side fully intact after one failed usage of it, so that was really rubbish. But then the black side was so good that its nearly all gone. You can smudge it easily - whether this is a good or bad thing I don't know, for smokey eyes it works well but for all black pigmented colour it doesnt work as well. Doesn't really last all day and fades to a grey colour, though it does wash off easily when it comes to taking it off. I think it might be different for all people though as its just one of those products. Not really worth the hassle tbh.
I absolutely love and adore make-up and am like a magpie. However because of this I own stacks of the stuff and of late have really tried hard to refrain from buying anything and to try to use up what I've got for the time being. However at Primarks low prices I'm unable to not buy anything and this is an example of that! These compacts are usually £1.00 each and comprise of two similar colours (one shade lighter than the other) and are all currently reduced to 50p a compact and I saw about 5 different colour options! The Packaging: Well the compact comes in a little see through bag telling me what it is and where it's from and contact details for Primark are given. The compact is a round one with a flip top lid to the top of it and it's frosted and clear in places. On the top of the compact in white writing I'm told it is Eye Shadow and on the base of the compact I'm told it an eye shadow duo, ingredients are listed and I'm given contact details for Primark. Inside there are two half moons of colour joined and in my case the powders are pink and one is lighter than the other and have a slight fine grained glitter in there. Using Them: I'm actually really impressed with this little compact to be honest. It's a fine powder shadow x2 of course and for me I use the darker colour on the bottom and the lighter on the top of my eyes. It's a fine powder and goes on lightly and all you do is blend in and add colour to get your chosen look. Although these contain small glitter particles in my opinion the powder can be applied so lightly to the eyes that you can go easy and use these in the day time if you wanted to. None fragranced and none irritating on the eyes they are so easy to apply and fuss free as well as incredibly economical too and once applied on the eyes I find the shadows stay put and stay fresh looking and bright till I choose to remove them and when I do they are so simple to remove too. Verdict: Although these are slightly sparkly eye-shadows, in my opinion you can use these at any time of the day you want to. I find them easy to apply and not too thick or colourful and they certainly don't sit in lines and wrinkles and are actually really subtle. I didn't think I'd be so keen on these but I love them and I'm loving looking pretty in pink! Only available in Primark stores
