Primark PS Strobe Crayons

Primark is one of those little treasure troves that I just love looking around, most of my PJ's come from there as do my lounge pants, cardigans and the one section which I do absolutely love is the makeup section.  You might have seen THIS post on the oval brushes which I absolutely love and then if you follow me on Instagram, I showed a MAC palette dupe which will appear on my blog in a few weeks time.

Today I am back to Primark and the PS range and these amazing Strobe Crayons! Everywhere I look right now there are Strobe creams, powders, compacts, palettes and sticks to debate over and obviously depending on your budget you can be spending quite a lot of money.  So whilst in Primark picking up a new black cardigan, I came across this pack of Strobe Crayons and for £3 I thought they were worthy of a try.

In the plastic wallet, which in itself is handy because it is self seal and fits some of my makeup brushes for when I am away from home, are three crayons with lids.  They are not twist and turn to get more from the pencil, you have to sharpen them but for £1 each I am not too fussed about it.

The three crayons are different shades Rose, Golden and Sand and the swatches below show just how pigmented they are with just one swipe and they glide onto the skin, they are blendable, they can be as bold or as light as you want them to be because they are buildable and they have a stunning shimmer.

From left to right we have Golden, Rose and then Sand and I can't decide which one I like the most, all three of them are so pretty and you can use all three on different areas of your face should you so wish.  Texture wise, as I have said, they glide onto the skin with no dragging feel and they are just a delight to use!

Another bargain from Primark!

  27. Funnily enough, I look at Primark makeup and wonder what it is like. I do buy the cotton pads regular as they are cheap for 50p. I am going to grab some of these, I want the rose one for my cheeks
