Primark Chocolate Range | Review

I know Primark are getting really good at their makeup game, especially making dupes and similar products to popular ones out there, like Kim and Kylie Kardashians range. Now I don't ever really try their skin products often because I had a bad brake out because of one before so I try to test their other products. Recently they released a range based on Chocolate, which I think looks a lot like Too Faced Chocolate palette and other products. Primark do have a chocolate palette themselves which smells the same as the Too Faced one but it didn't have any interesting shades so I didn't buy it. Instead I thought I'd try the Chocolate Molten Gloss - which is very similar in packaging to Too Faced melted lipsticks, and the Chocolate highlighter because it looked very pretty. 





The Primark Chocolate molten Gloss was very disappointing for me, when I swatched it, it seemed to be very pigmented and not very glossy and glittery - but more matte and it does smell like chocolate. Yet when applied to the lips it washed my skin tone out and made my lips look very colourless. It was very glittery on, and not very glossy. I think it might be good on top of another lipstick, but by itself I would not wear it again. I think that the packaging is pretty and that it is very like the idea of Too Faced melted lipsticks, but it is no where near as nice. The lip liner that comes with it is nice but not very strong in colour, it isn't hard to apply but it looks like it could be twisted up but doesn't twist. It's not the worst but not the best that I've tried.

   

 The next thing from the range that I bought is the Chocolate highlighter, I kind of thought that it would be a chocolate toned colour, but it is the complete opposite, but still smells like chocolate. I think it's very pretty to look at on the inside, but the packaging isn't as nice as the other stuff in the range. The highlighter needs a few layers to have a good pay off effect but I do like it. It's very opaque yet pink, peachy and shimmery and a little iridescent, I think it will be nice in the summer and I will definitely be using it.

 Sorry the swatches aren't really in focus the highlighter wouldn't focus. The swatches are of the chocolate gloss, lip liner, and chocolate highlighter. 

Has anyone tried these products yet? What do you think of the products?

  1. Ah that had got to be a little disappointing but I think that is the price that comes when buying dupes. Most of the time its a hot or miss and for me if its a miss then I try to find ways to use it to make another product like I could take the higlighter and mix it with an eyeshadow to make a new DIY eyeshadow or something like that.

    1. Oh that's a really good idea! Not sure if I could use the lipgloss for anything else though! It's a risk for the price, they're just so good at making everything really pretty! x

  2. Such great reviews! It's so cool they look and smell like the Too Faced chocolate range but disappointing that they weren't quite as good ”Ice Cream” whispers Clara

    1. I actually do like the highligher, and it looks so pretty! Just wish the quality of both was a little better but you can't really complain too much for the price! x

  4. I've heard so much about Primark's make-up ranges lately and I definitely need to get on board - especially because it's so cheap! It's a shame you didn't like the molten gloss but the highlighter looks really pretty!
