Primark Matte Lipsticks (£1!)

You all must know by now that I love me a beauty bargain, so when I saw this matte lipstick in the beauty section at Primark, I just had to try it. At only £1 I didn't have massively high hopes but I thought it was a gorgeous colour - turns out it's actually lovely too! 

It doesn't have a shade name but its a very bright matte pink with a little bit of a coral undertone rather than being a blue toned candy pink! The packaging is just a simple plastic casing with a gold lid, not too luxurious looking but certainly not offensive. First thing I noticed was the scent, it's a sugary sweet vanilla scent so if you like the smell of Mac lipsticks then you'll probably find this to be a bonus! 

The shade itself applied almost identical to the bullet, but perhaps a little softer. The formula is creamy although it is a matte shade and I definitely didn't find this drying - which is always a plus for matte lipsticks. In terms of staying power I'd say you could get a few hours wear from this, maybe 2 - 3 hours which isn't too bad at all for the £1 price tag IMO. 

Definitely worth checking out next time you're at Primark!
