Swatches + Review: Primark | PS... Pure Glow Highlighting Palette

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

I went into Primark recently to have a look around, especially now that their summer stuff is out but something that caught my eye was the Pure Glow Highlighting Palette. I have a small amount of highlighters and because I wanted to grow my collection, I thought this would be a perfect one, on the basis that it's good. And it includes 4 different shades so, why not?

Let's start off with the packaging. It's covered with a marble print and rose gold letter detailing. That's already a winner. It has a magnet within the packaging on the lid so that it can close nice and tight. When you lift up the lid, there are the highlighters in all their glory with more rose gold packaging. It's just so dreamy to look at.

Moving onto the highlighters themselves. In the palette, starting with the top row, there is a light, pearly white shade called Desert and a shimmery, golden sandy colour called Glimmer. On the bottom row, there is this beautiful peachy matte shade called Eden and lastly, there is Firefly, a shimmery light brown/gold colour. Looking at them, Glimmer and Firefly are very similar to look at but you can see that there is a slight difference in the shades when you see them in a good light. Overall, they are some really nice colours. So far, so good!

Now for the exciting part, and the bit you are probably looking forward to the most, the swatches! Not going to lie, but I was so impressed with the pigmentation of these. Just, look at that shine! Although these are a powder formula, they are surprisingly soft to touch and don't crumble or anything. They glide onto the finger and skin so smoothly and you don't even have to press hard to get product. The lightest touch gives you plenty of highlighter.

Obviously, once you've blended them out, they aren't going to be that striking and bright but even when they have been blended, they are still pretty pigmented, especially Glimmer and Firefly.

Overall, this palette is simply amazing for £5 (yes, you read that right). The range of colours are so pigmented, the packaging is gorgeous and it's a bargain highlighter palette. I personally don't think I'd be able to use Glimmer or Firefly much as a highlighter but I'm sure I'd be able to find other uses for it (maybe eyeshadow?). I'm really happy that Primark have got a whole beauty range because you can find some great things so don't skip it if you go to a store. Well done Primark.

Do you own this palette? Do you own any other highlights from Primark?
