Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Today’s post is all about the beauty tools available in the Primark PS Beauty range!
I’ve never purchased anything like this from Primark, instead favoring my Real Techniques Sponges and Brushes, but times are hard and it can be a little expensive when you need a new blender at least every month! I recently lost my favorite eyebrow brush so while I was in Primark I thought why not give these a try!
PS PRO Double Ended Round Blender – £2.00
PS PRO Mini Blender x4 – £2.50
PS PRO Flat Edge Blender – £2
I have tried alot of blenders! I was extremely dissapointed with the Beauty Blender original, I thought it was way too spongy and I did not get the flawless coverage that I wanted. It also split after it’s first wash and at £16 I expected alot more! The Make Up Revolution blender I bought was ok but very hard and compressed in comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge that has become the one I use day to day.
All of the Blenders pictured are latex free and are firm but not too firm that they are hard to work with. You can dampen them well and they double in size once they are wet. They are very easy to clean (as i’m anal and do it after each use) and the colours do not run at all – unlike my Beauty Blender did!!
Mini Blender – I have always liked the idea of the micro blender for concealer as I sometimes struggle to blend with my usual sponge as well as I would like. These are awesome for getting into all the little creases around your nose and eyes as well as for patting your under-eye concealer, leaving it looking flawless!
Flat Edge Blender –The flat edge blender I use now to apply my foundation with. Its exactly the same shape and definitely rivals the Miracle Complexion Sponge but it’s a third of the price! I feel like my liquid foundation is applied evenly and it creates a smooth and flawless finish!
I am yet to use the double ended round blender, as I haven’t done a full cream contour and highlight, but if it’s as good as the others I know I will be impressed!
PS Liquid Blending Brush – £2
PS Eyeshadow and Concealer Brush – £1
PS Angled Eyebrow Brush
All these brushes are soft and dense. They are amazing value for the price and do the job they are meant to.
Liquid Blending Brush – I found that I used less product when I applied it with this brush because I was able to blend it really well and get into all the creases in my face and no streaky marks either. I’ve started to use this for my powder contour as it’s the perfect width and size for that too!
Eyeshadow and Concealer brush – Sadly all this one is really good for is patting on my base colour or some sparkle to the inner corners once I’ve finished blending in the outer corner. It’s not bad but its not a blending brush. The concealer brush is great for really working on your imperfections before you apply your foundation.
Angled Eyebrow Brush – I recently lost my Real Techniques brow brush and I’ve tried a few since then, this has to be the best. It is so firm and I can get a really precise line, the spooly is just an added bonus!
I will definitely be trying others from this range in the future, especially at such a great price!
Have you tried any of these? What would you recommend?
