= Primark Trust Dust Loose Mineral Eyeshadow=
I am a sucker for trying new makeup and I was quite surprised to see that Primark has entered the makeup market, so I purchased this mineral eye shadow in lilac.
The eye shadow comes in a plastic tube which is transparent in colour, so you get a good idea of the colour you are purchasing. The lid is brightly coloured and this is easy to pull off.
I was really impressed with the applicator with this eye shadow, the wand at first looks like a mascara stick, but the brush is replaced by a small cone-shaped piece of sponge,
=Using this eye shadow=
I was really impressed at how easy this eye shadow was easy to use, as due to the nature of the applicator, there is no spillage of the eye shadow and a small amount comes out on the applicator. Due to the style of it, it is very easy to get into the corner of your eyes, and you can decide what dept of the shade you want.
The eye shadow is described as being hypo-allergenic, but there is also a caution on the side, as the applicator contains latex.
This is an own brand Primark item, it was originally priced at £1.99, but when I got home and looked at the receipt it had came up as 99p
=Would I recommend=
I would highly recommend this eye shadow, I am not normally a powder eye shadow, as I have problems with the staying power, but with this eye shadow has good staying power and easy to use.
*Primark eyes Trust Dust loose mineral eyeshadow*
I purchased this eyeshadow in blue at first and loved it so much I bought it in lilac as well. It also comes in apricot. The eyeshadow comes in the form of loose dust, in a plastic tube. It is transparent with a bright coloured lid, which is easily pulled off.
Of all my eyeshadows, this is my favourite type of applicator. Inside the lid there is a wand similar to mascara, which is used for applying the eyeshadow. The applicator is made of clear plastic, and has a oval shape on the end, making it easy to remove from the tube and hold. The end of the wand has a small cone-shaped piece of spongy material, which holds the eyeshadow well, and it is easy to rub this against your eyelids to get a nice even covering. I always give it a little tap on the top of the container before applying, to remove excess. Otherwise I get bits dropping onto my eyelashes as I apply.
The tube is shaped so that it is easy to get the product out with the applicator, but difficult to spill, due to 'lips' on the edges of the inside.
The eyeshadow can be applied thickly if you like to give a really distinct look, but it also looks great with a thin covering. One pot lasts for months, and it has a picture to say use within 36 months of opening. The trust dust is advertised as being hypo-allergenic, but it also has 'CAUTION: Applicator contains Latex' on the side.
The RRP of this product is £1.99 but I purchased them on offer for only 50p each which was a bargain. I will definitely re-purchase even at full price.
Whilst looking at the make up in Primark a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that they had a few sale items. The first that caught my eye was a small pot of loose mineral eyeshadow at only 50p!. the colours were limited - purple or apricot, but I thought the apricot colour would be good for the summer months.
The packaging is almost like a squat mascara and you need to be careful when pulling the wand out as it can suddenly come out when you are pulling it. The end of the wand has a small sponge tip which makes the powder very easy to apply.
I found that the powder glided on fairly easily but to get a good colour you needed to blend it a bit with your finger. The apricot colour I chose gave me a good natural look but also had a bit of added "sparkle " so it wasn't just a flat matt result.
It lasts fairly well, but can crease a bit if you put too much on.
Overall a great budget product and in tehsale represents great value for money. I'm not sure if they will be bringing more out or whether this was the end of the range but I know I'll be checking next time I'm in.
When it comes to eye-shadows they really are something I can't resist buying lately! I own loads but when I saw this product in my local Primark store usually costing £1.99 but reduced to £1.00 it seemed worth trying to me to be honest and I chose to buy one in a white shimmery colour as a sort of highlighter around my brow bone when using other eye-shadows! I already was out looking for one so I really did spot this at a good time!
It came in a brightly coloured plastic, oblong box which simply told me that it was was a Primark product and what it was etc. The Tube of shadow comes in a clear plastic tube with a see-through turquoise lid/cap that unscrews on/off not so easily (I find it really hard to get it lined up correctly and to do it up to be honest) and then when you have the lid off you have a smooth sponge applicator that pulls out of the tube attached to a clear 'wand'. On the front of the tube and in turquoise writing I'm told it is 'Eyes' Trust Dust Loose Mineral Eyeshadow and on the back of the product I'm told that it is hypo-allergenic and contact details for Primark are given and that once I've opened it to use it up withing 36 months.
In this range of eyeshadows there are rather a few different colours to choose from. As I stated I went for a very light one to compliment make-up I already own and I'm mighty glad I did.
For an economy looking and priced product this is actually very good indeed. I like the applicator that is given with it as the loose eyeshadow clings to it so well without spillage of flecks going anywhere they shouldn't and all you do is use this as you would do any eyeshadows.
The results with this are great. I can make it stand out, or blend in and use it with any brand or colour of eyeshadow I desire. It's very smooth and slightly shiny and contains no glitter particles in it to create that effect.
Once on it stays put basically until you choose to remove it and stays clean, crisp and bright for hours and then when you want to remove it, it simply comes off with your usual make up removing routine.
Not only is this a cheapy product to invest in it really is a further economy buy down to how little you use of this per application. It's easy to use, easy to remove and really does create great looks on the eyes for the duration.
These are recommended from me due their mild and soft approach on the eyes and being extremely comfortable and none transferable once applied! I can't wait to buy a few more of these at this offer price to update my look for this Christmastime!
