I am back again, continuing the ‘Testing Primark Series‘, and this week I thought I would give you the low-down on the ‘My Perfect Colour concealer’. This Primark concealer is only £2 … yes, you read that correctly, only £2. As concealers go, this is not just cheap but super cheap. But is it any good?
The Primark concealer – Packaging:
I actually really like this packaging, I think it is very similar to most drugstore concealers, a thin plastic tube with simple black lettering. I love the fact that it is clear and black packaging as I personally think it looks more sophisticated. The narrow tube means that it doesn’t take up loads of room in both my collection and makeup bag, something that I really appreciate. The packaging also displays key information such as shade, volume and important claims. This Primark concealer has a simple doe-foot applicator which I don’t think is the best. For £2 I will let it slide, but I would prefer a larger, more cushioned applicator for quicker and smoother application. Overall it looks very similar to the Maybelline Fit Me or the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer!
The Primark Concealer
This concealer consists of a total of 7.8 ml (or 0.26 Fl Oz). To put that into perspective, the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, which I think is probably has the most similarities to the Primark version, is 6.8 ml. So you are getting a considerable amount of product for such a small price point. The My perfect colour concealer range has 8 shades, ranging from the very fair to the more deeper skin tones. I chose the shade ‘Ivory’ as I am basically a walking, talking milk bottle. I will say I was limited by my Primark’s stock, and if I had more choices I would have chosen a paler shade, eg. porcelain, as this one is slightly too dark for under my eyes.
There aren’t many claims listed by this Primark concealer, but here they are:
- medium coverage
- Contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera
So, as I said before, this concealer reminds me the most of the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, and I would say it is a good dupe. This concealer is definitely not full coverage like the Makeup Revolution one but is more light-medium. It feels very lightweight underneath the eyes, but doesn’t cover all of my dark circles, but the majority. Nonetheless, I do like this concealer for a no-makeup, makeup day. Like I said, I definitely got the wrong shade, and so I’m sure a lighter shade would be much more brightening underneath the eyes.
In terms of the vitamin E and Aloe vera claims, obviously I can’t really prove that, but I do think it is a nice touch. Vitamin E is great for anti-ageing and so if you have more mature skin and want a light concealer underneath your eyes – this is the one for you. Aloe vera provides moisture to the skin. I can’t say that this concealer added moisture to my under eyes but it didn’t make them feel dry which some concealers do. All good! The Primark Concealer didn’t crease on me and lasted a good few hours.
Would I buy it again?
Overall, I did enjoy this concealer for more of a lightweight makeup day. I do wish it did more for my dark circles, but I think getting the right shade would make my under eyes brighter (my bad). If I was ever in my local Primark, I would pick this concealer up again, and for £2 … who could blame me?!
