If you haven’t popped into Primark this month yet, I urge you to spend a saturday having a browse. There’s a bunch of new beauty items (some of which I am showing you in this post), loads of cute Harry Potter and Disney themed things and the Autumn season clothing range is the best yet. I’m not a fashion blogger, so you won’t be seeing what clothing I got this time (unless you watch my haul video which is linked at the bottom of this post) but I will be showing you the makeup and accessories I grabbed on my latest spree! If you want to see more hauls, there’s a whole category dedicated to them…
I haven’t bought any jewellery (apart from my wedding ring…) in years. I used to have a lot, but never find myself wearing anything except the odd choker. I went ‘out out’ the other week – you can read about the makeup I did for the event here – and put some old earrings on from my university days and I realised how much difference jewellery can make to an outfit. It makes it feel more put-together and less like I walked into Oxfam and came out with the first outfit that fit me. I’m planning to sort through my old jewellery and finding the pieces that I really love, but I definitely needed to pick up some new earrings as nearly all of mine are broken or lost.
The first pair I chose were a two-pack of gold hoops for just £1.50. One pair is plain gold which will be better for every day wear, but the other pair is coated in silver glitter, which is perfect for a more dressy event or a night out. I haven’t worn hoops this big since I was a teenager, but I’ve seen quite a lot of people rocking them recently so I think that means they’re fashionable again.
The second pair is a dangly gold pair with little black balls of thread, for want of a better word. They have a diamante ‘stud’ at the top and can be dressed up or down depending on the outfit. I love these so much, but my kittens love them even more, so I’ll have to be careful not to have them ripped out of my ears. These were £3 and well worth it (although possibly not if I get my ears torn to shreds).
I’m a huge fan of Primark’s beauty range (hence why I own most of it – check out my ‘best of Primark beauty’ post here) and knew I had to pick up some of the Autumn/Winter collection! I grabbed the new My Perfect Colour BB Cream first, as this is the first BB Cream Primark has released and I love a good BB Cream, especially for just £4. It’s in the shade Porcelain which seems to be a really good match for me! I also picked up the My Perfect Colour foundation as well, which I think is the same foundation as my favourite £2.50 one from Primark but repackaged.
The two Insta Girl Liquid Lipsticks are new to the range as well; they’re the first satin-finish liquid lipsticks Primark has released. I really love the PS Pro liquid matte lipsticks so I’m hoping I’ll like these just as much! I got the shades ‘It Girl’ and ‘Want It All’ which are both pinks, but fairly nude. I had to pick up another shade of the Velvet Matte Lip Crayons, which I’m obsessed with. This is a new shade called ‘Super Nude’ and it is exactly what it says – a super nude. I love the formula of these and they’re so easy to use for a quick everyday lip product.
Finally I chose a Single Blusher! I have the shade ‘Taboo’ already and really enjoy the formula so I thought I’d pick up the newest shade, ‘Desire’. It’s very slightly shimmery and a little more pink; it almost gives me NARS Orgasm vibes but for a lot cheaper at just £1.50.
