Last Wednesday I had the day off work so we decided to head into Nottingham to do a little shopping. I’ve heard lots of rumours about the infamous unicorn brushes coming to Primark soon so I had to check it out to see if they had them in the store – I was not disappointed! I found myself surrounded by dupes for all cult and highly sought after products, here are a few that I picked up!
Firstly I managed to snag a pack of the “Unicorn” makeup brushes, they’re right on trend at the moment! They feature a unicorn horn handle and pastel bristles which make them look totally adorable. I’ll be honest, I only picked these up so they could look pretty on my vanity table, however, they really surprised me with the quality and blendability (not too sure if that’s a word if I’m honest!). At only £9 I think these are an excellent introduction to makeup brushes and even some pretty ones for the seasoned makeup collectors!
Next, I picked up the “Halographic” highlighter stick for £4 which seems to be a dupe for the Milk Holographic stick (retailing at $28). The stick initially seemed quite dry but upon wiping the top layer off with kitchen roll, it became an exact copy for the Milk Holographic stick. The highlight is an iridescent purple with a blue shift, it’s very hard to describe as it throws so many different colours in different lights. I wouldn’t advise applying it straight from the stick as it can remove other makeup beneath, I used a damp beauty sponge and bounced it across my cheekbones for the best results. This has become a firm favourite highlighter these past few days and I think it’s going to be a summer staple for me!
Finally is the Pixie Kisses lipstick for £1, this is a dupe for the Too Faced Unicorn Tears lipstick which is a highly sought after cult product (retailing for £20 – if you can find it in stock!) This immediately drew my attention due to it’s shiny packaging (yes, I’m like a magpie) and for only £1 I couldn’t resist! It applies nicely to the lips and shade adjusts to the pH of your skin (hence it’ll look different on everyone). I LOVE the way this lipstick looks on me and again, will be another summer staple.
I hope you all enjoyed this post, I really enjoyed testing out these products! Have you picked any good products up from Primark recently? If so let me know in the comments down below.
