I am a huge believer in been able to find good beauty products at a low price, we are living in an age where beauty products to some extent are becoming more accessible and more affordable. Today I am looking at another affordable eyeshadow option, so let’s see how it compares.
Last February I did an extensive post on a range of P.S. Love products which you can read here, and I am finally picking up another product to test out. I was trying to resist buying more eyeshadows but when I spotted this beautiful warm neutral palette for only £2.50 I couldn’t resist. I love all 9 shades in this palette and I feel in general it works in 3 strips of ‘looks’, but you can easily mix and match across the whole palette. The packaging is sturdy so it will be great for travel, I just feel as though it is a shame that there isn’t a mirror but sometimes it is useful to see the shades in the palette.
So how does it swatch? Initially I was unsure when I got the palette home and played with it the first time some shadows appeared chalky and had a lot of fall out. When swatching a good level of colour goes on your fingertips but when transferred onto the skin the pigmentation is not quite as high as I would like it to be. Pigmentation is better when applying to the lid with brushes.
From the colours you were never going to be able to create a dramatic look but you can create a variety of natural and versatile looks. I found these shadows applied best when using a fluffy brush opposed to a flat brush, but they apply well and will a little bit of work blend really nicely. The shadows last well over the day, and I have no noticed any creasing but I usually apply eyeshadow primer or an eyeshadow base regardless as part of my routine. After the initial push the first day or so to make sure I’d tried it for review I found myself reaching for it most work mornings, it is so easy to put together an appropriate work look or something natural for every day.
The P.S. Love 9 Shade Eye Palette is available in Primark stores for £2.50 and is available in the warm neutrals as seen in this post as well as a smoky palette. Subject to availability, but you can check out the full P.S Love product range on the Primark website.
Overall I really like the P.S Love 9 Shade Eye Palette and I would be tempted to try the more smokey toned one. It offers great value for money and is great for any one from those starting out to makeup junkies, I do recommend checking it out next time your in Primark. Let me know if you’ve tried any of the Primark P.S. Love Range and let me know your thoughts in the comments.
