Primark PS PRO Makeup Collection Review



After the great success of the Primark PS Love makeup collection, Primark Beauty decided to release another premium, drugstore cosmetics line of affordable makeup called PS Pro makeup. Contrary to their PS Love makeup, the packaging and outlook of the products have a more expensive and quality feel to them. I've already tried the PS Love range, let's see what the PS Pro makeup line has to offer. 


PRIMARK PS PRO Miracle Primer Prep & Perfect €7

Claims

-silky, lightweight balm
-creates a smooth flawless finish
-minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines
-translucent
-oil free formula
-for all skin types
-can be worn alone, under or over makeup

Facts

-cream to powder formula
-has a brownish-nude color
-shiny finish (no shimmer)
-2 more primer formulas available: 
Illuminating Primer, Mattifying Primer


Pros

-hygienic packaging
-formula becomes colourless when blended
-creates a smooth & glowing makeup base
-minimises pores

Cons

-smells unpleasant
-consistency looks like bird poo
-doesn't smooth out fine lines

My thoughts:

Personally I'm not too thrilled about the formula of this product. The primer looks like it has gone bad, the product is separated and gross looking, it's definitely not something I am eager to apply on my face. If that doesn't bother you, I would say that it's quite a good primer. I'm not sure if it's worth €7 however, I expect something better for that price tag. 


PRIMARK PS PRO Longwear Mineralized Foundation €7

Claims

-provides all benefits of mineral powders
-smoothes the appearance of skin imperfections & moisturises
-provides excellent coverage with a natural finish and weightless feel
-contains SPF 15 to protect the skin from the sun

Facts

-shade 00 Porcelain
-cool toned
-natural/matte finish
-4 more shades available:
01 Ivory, 02 Nude Beige, 03 Rich Beige, 05 Chestnut




Pros

-hygienic packaging
-formula is full coverage
-blends easily
-perfect for a snow white complexion
-longlasting
-flawless application of other face makeup 
(blush, bronzer, highlighter)

Cons

-smells like paint
-settles into fine lines (!!)
-gives mask effect
-formula is not weightless
-formula is rather drying
-formula doesn't settle, stays sticky
-appears rather cakey when set with powder

My thoughts:

I've never seen any low budget makeup brand nailing a formula so white, without it oxidising, which is amazing news for people who have an extremely pale skin tone. I'm not a big fan of this foundation myself, because it doesn't live up to its claims at all, but I do think it's a product that will be appreciated by a lot of you. It's full coverage, has a great longlasting formula, a decent shade range and retails for only €7. This foundation has potential. 


PRIMARK PS PRO HD Brows Longwear Eyebrow Pen €4

Claims

-water resistant
-smudge proof
-longlasting

Facts

-shade 02 brooke
-dark brown
-felt-tip applicator



Claims

-water resistant
-smudge proof
-longlasting

Facts

-shade 01 Ultimate Nude
-felt tip applicator
-comes in 4 different shades



PRIMARK PS PRO HD Brows Longwear Eyebrow Pen €4

Pros

-pigmented
-easy to blend
-easy to remove

Cons

-smells like a regular marker
-tip not easy to work with, no flexibility

My thoughts:

I was very surprised with this product. I somehow imagined it not being blendable and difficult to remove, but I really like it. The felt tip is not well thought through to draw your brows on, but with a bit of patience the completed look turns out great and long wearing.



Pros

- (none)

Cons

-extremely sticky
-tastes bad
-acts like glue that doesn't dry when pressing lips together
-cannot be applied evenly
-tip is not flexible
-becomes patchy

My thoughts:

I do not recommend this product whatsoever. 


PRIMARK PS PRO Rich Colour Lipstick €4

Claims

-contains color rich pigments
-full coverage
-creamy texture
-contains vitamine E to hydrate & condition lips

Facts

-shade 01 Iconic Nude
-lip balm formula
-packaging is innovative but dodgy
-4 more lipsticks available:
Provocative Pink, Boudoir Pink, Midnight Crimson, Hollywood Red


Pros

-beautiful nude color
-comfortable formula

Cons

-not full coverage
-greasy feeling
-very sheer formula
-not longlasting

My thoughts:

This lipstick looks and feels very cheap, both the packaging and the lipstick itself. It kinda reminds me of the Elf 1 dollar lipsticks, I was very disappointed when I opened up the little box. It's a okay product but not something I would repurchase, I have better low budget lipsticks in my collection.



Claims

- (none)

Facts

-shade 01 Supermodel Nude
-standard/dow foot lipgloss applicator
-regular lipgloss formula
-no shimmer
-2 more shades available:
Bombshell Pink, Femme Fatale


Pros

-non sticky
-nice color pay off
-doesn't separate
-smells like vanilla ice cream

Cons

-very basic

My thoughts:

This PS Pro Primark lipgloss is nice, I compared it to a couple of other budget friendly glosses and it definitely stands out. The pigmentation is nice and it wears well. I also like the packaging, it's very pretty and minimalistic.


The PS Pro makeup collection didn't really impress me, of course there's loads more to choose from, if you take a look on their website. Primark also released concealers, setting powders, eyeliners, a mascara and a lip scrub. Have you tried Primark makeup before? What's your favorite product from the line? Are you planning on shopping their new collection? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I used to be a big fan of primark way before they got so hyped and all. I do feel that the quality of their products have decreased ever since they gained in popularity. Never the less I've always disliked their make-up for all the negative points you've listed. I prefer using Catrice for a budgetproof option and some basics from MAC ;)

    1. I discovered Primark only about a year ago, it's an okay shop, I don't see why people are so obsessed with it because some of their products are indeed very bad quality. I go there to pick up on trends for the most part :) The prices of this makeup line are ridiculous to me, you're much better off spending your money on classic and more trustworthy makeup brands, Catrice is also one of my fav options :D

  2. De foundation heb ik ook, maar hij maakt me super grauw! Ik ben heel licht en normaal is porcelain goed (of nog iets te donker) voor me, maar nog nooit heeft een foundation me zo'n spook gezicht gegeven. Zo balen, toch 7 euro weggegooid. Voor de rest heb ik helemaal niks van de PS Pro collectie, maar zo te zien mis ik niet echt iets haha! De lipstick crayons en de lipsticks van de PS collectie vind ik dan wel weer fijn.

  4. I've bought some products from both their PS range and their Pro one. When I saw the pro range i was a bit skeptical of whether it was pro or not. I haven't tried the products yet, but i bought them to do a review of them on my blog. I bought a concealer from the pro range and it the lid just sides off. You literally can't screw it on at all, think it must be broken. x

  5. I've tried the products and aren't really impressed with them, the quality in general is not good. I only really liked the liquid lipstick and illuminating primer. I also credited you in the my blog post as i really liked how honest you are about these products. Your blog is the only other one i have read that gives these products an honest review.
