Primark's £4 Eyeshadow Palettes Review

Friday 24 May 2019

In the last year or two Primark have really upped their beauty game, and now have dedicated areas in their stores that are full of skincare, hair care, tools, makeup and much more. I have discovered some really great products at Primark since their beauty release and they are super affordable. When I recently visited my local store I discovered they had brought out some new £4 eyeshadow palettes so I thought I would see if they were any good or not.
I have three palettes here, but there are more in the collection, however I thought I would get the most use out of these shades. The packaging is fine, and although you don't get a mirror or a brush included, the palette is still pretty sturdy. The three I chose are Tropical Storm, Wild Love and Gold Rush.
When swatching the shadows for this post, I did realise that some of the shades were either the same or very similar between the palettes, and so on reflection maybe I didn't need all three of them, but at £4 each it isn't too much of a mistake on my part. All three of the palettes house 12 eye shadows each and contain both matte and shimmery finishes.
Colour-wise I think Wild Love has to be my favourite, as it has a good selection of oranges, nudes, golds and shimmers, with Tropical Storm being my least favourite as the colours really are quite random and don't really go together very well. With regards to the pigmentation, both Gold Rush and Wild Love wore very well and had a good depth to them for the price, but Tropical Storm was terrible. I had to really struggle to get any colour pay-off from the palette and found it very disappointing considering how impressed I have been with Primark's eye shadows in the past.
If you are looking for a lighter gold and nude palette for Spring and Summer then I would definitely recommend Gold Rush as it has some really pretty shades in it, whereas Wild Love will work great with a tan or during Autumn when we tend to wear warmer shades. Overall, I would say those two palettes are definitely worth picking up, but leave Tropical Storm well alone.

You can find these palettes in-store at Primark.

All the Loves,
