Hi lovelies! I’m back! Sorry for the post shortage recently, but life has gotten in the way of blogging. Never fear, Being Chloe is back in business! I thought today I would bring back the Testing Primark makeup series, with this little beauty… The K-pop Sweet Cheeks blush & highlighter palette. Is this possibly the cutest palette you will ever see? 100% yes. For £5, is it worth your money? Keep reading to find out.
Okay, this palette is adorable. I am absolutely in love with this K-pop inspired packaging, it is cute af. The packaging is simple white cardboard, with black lettering and cute pink polka-dots and hearts. Adorable. Inside, there is a cute little message awaiting you… ‘Sweet as sugar!’, which is a nice added touch. My favourite part of this palette is the heart-shaped pans for each of the blushes/highlighters. The are large enough so that you can easily fit your brush into and are far enough apart from each other to not cross-contaminate. The heart pans also have little faces in them – not essential but is soo cute. I also like the bright contrasting colours behind each of the pans, which have clearly been inspired by K-pop. Overall, the packaging is both fun and functional, the only thing that is lacking is a mirror!
If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I am not a blusher girl. I just never wear it. No matter how hard I try I just can’t get into using the bloody thing. You will also know that I could give Casper the friendly ghost a run for his money with my pale ass skin. So I don’t use this shades as blushes, but they are gorgeous highlights. Each pan is 2.7g each so you are getting a lot of product for your dollar, and with four shades to choose from, it is an ideal palette for everybody!
- Candy Floss – A shimmery golden shade
- Lemon Sherbet – A champagne shade
- Jelly Bean – A pale lilac shade
- Bon Bon – A bright pink shade
So these shades are beautiful. Primark are always really good at making highlighters as they are insanely pigmented and last all day long. No really, I put Lemon Sherbet on at 6am before work and I was still glowing at 6pm. All of the shades are stunning but my favourites have to be Lemon Sherbet and Candy floss. If you’re pale like me, these shades will be your best friends. I even like adding a touch of Jelly Bean to add an extra dimension. I never thought I would like a lilac highlighter, but Primark has swayed me. Bon Bon is a bit too pink for my liking, but if you like a shimmery blush then this ones for you.
Did I mention, it is also Cherry fragranced? As I said with the Chocolate range, I am not too fussed about nice smelling makeup, but it is a nice extra I guess. You will literally have sweet cheeks.
Overall this is a lovely palette. Cute packaging and glowy af highlights… what more can a girl want?
Have you tried this palette? Are you as obsessed with the packaging as I am? Let me know in the comments!
