Primark mermaid glow highlighter – a cult product for £3.50 

product review

I urge you one and all to stop wasting your money on expensive highlighters! I know the struggle; they look so attractive and shiny, but this highlighter from Primark ticks all the boxes. It ensures that you look like a real life mermaid, if ever there was one! 

Full review 

Firstly, it is only £3.50, so not really a huge investment. The highlighter also comes in other colours, should you not prefer a shiny white mermaid metallic look. 

It is ultra pigmented! In comparison to my Urban Decay highlighter (I have the powder highlighter in ‘Sin’), I can’t say there is much difference in quality. The Primark highlighter has longevity, I have been wearing it for around two weeks now; and everyday it stays put for the entire day. I know this because on my way home from work, I happened to just catch my reflection in glass and my cheeks were shining to the high heavens. Of course I smiled to myself. 

The next time you visit Primark be sure to grab one of these – if there’s any left. Sure, the packaging is rather basic maybe compared to more expensive highlighters. But you know what, I like it. It’s simplistic and it does the job, pretty darn well may I add. 

[Perhaps not the best pic to show off the highlight, but it’s there glowing away if you look close enough]

The miracle product you never knew you needed until now

As shown, the prep spray provides the quintessential base for flawless make-up

 

A vitamin prep spray!?!? Like, what even is that?

We’ve all heard of Urban Decay’s legendary make-up setting spray; the setting spray of all facial sprays. Supposedly lasts through 12 hour sessions of sex, probably last even through WW3. Hey – no matter what is going on externally, our faces must always be flawless right. *Regina George moment right thurrrrrr*

Honestly speaking, since I have had this vitamin prep spray from UD – it has changed not only my make-up regime – but my life. You apply it before your daily moisturiser, and it’s like a breathe of fresh air onto your mush. It closes pores, reduces redness and imperfections; but also, it feels so bloody refreshing. Imagine the rejuvenating feeling of splashing ice cold Evian on your face first thing in the morning, BUT with added vitamins to enhance your skin, and perfectly prep it for your make-up. Flawless!

Everyone needs it. Now, what are you waiting for?
