We Put The Primark PS…Pro Makeup Range To The Test

As you may have heard, this month we’ve teamed up with renowned Beauty & Lifestyle Vlogger Estée Lalonde to curate an edit of products to keep you looking and feeling your very best all season long.

So we’re very excited to introduce you to a new makeup brand PS…Pro and have specially selected six of our favourite products from the range for you to try – you’ll receive one of these in your box and we can’t wait to hear what you think.

Yes, we were a little dubious when we heard that Primark had launched a beauty range too, but once we’d tried it and saw how good the results were first hand it fast became a staple in our makeup bags. So, we wanted you to discover the products too!

To test them out, we put them through their paces last week – here’s what we thought of each and some top tips from our makeup ambassador Emma O’Byrne on applying them…

PS… Pro Primer
The secret to great foundation is the perfect underwear (in other words, a really great primer) and PS…Pro’s totally raises the bar. It smoothes the skin, creating a perfect canvas for your makeup. The trick is to apply it in sweeping motions from the centre of your face and blend it outwards – as you would with liquid foundation. If you have combination skin, you can even multi-prime – in other words, apply a mattifying primer to your T-zone and an illuminating primer to the rest of your complexion.

PS… Pro Miracle Pencil

This 3-in-1 pencil really is the ultimate multi-tasking must-have! It brightens the eyes when applied to the inner corner, along the waterline and along your brow bone. What’s more you can also use it to prevent your lip colour from bleeding or adjust the shape of your lips.

PS… Pro Graphic Eyeliner in Black

This clever felt tip eyeliner has been engineered in Japan to allow you to easily create a thin, thick or intense black line of jet black. The water resistant, long lasting formula means your liner won’t smudge or budge, either. It’s probably up there with one of the easiest we’ve used!

PS… Pro HD Mascara Black

This mascara defines, volumizes and lifts lashes from root to tip thanks to a flexible rubber brush, which works like a 360-degree fine toothed comb – and a creamy formula that doesn’t clump. Start by curling your lashes, then wiggle and twist the brush from root to tip for the perfect finish. Oh, and don’t forget your bottom lashes!

PS… Pro Finishing Powder

Powder is the last finishing touch to make-up. This lightweight, ultra-fine formula is talc-free and sets foundation for a long lasting finish, mattifying skin and softening the look of fine lines and pores.

PS… Pro Lip Liner
This felt tip style liner easily smooth over the contours of your lips, for a seamless finish. Gently line the edge of your lips to create the perfect shape – then you can use it to fill in your lips, too, for a bold finish. It’s also waterproof so will stay put all day (or night)!
