After its £2.50 mascara sent sales into the stratosphere, shoppers are now raving about a budget Primark lipstick on social media – and they’re so impressed with its pigment and long-lasting formula that they’re saying it rivals one by M.A.C. and even lasts 10 hours.
We’re suckers for a good beauty bargain here at GLAMOUR HQ and one high street store that consistently serves up purse-friendly beauty buys is Primark.
Primark’s You Do You Babe matte lipstick has gone viral on Facebook – and it will only set you back £1.50.
Shoppers are so impressed with the lipstick, they’re saying it rivals high-end Velvet Teddy from M.A.C., which, as beauty aficionados will know, is a beauty cult favourite. In fact, it’s the beauty brand’s best-selling nude shade – famous for suiting every skin tone, and for it’s creamy formula.
One reviewer took to Facebook to rave about the lipstick, saying it stayed on for the entirety of her 10-hour shift. Who doesn’t love a long lasting-lipstick? Comments soon flooded in with people eager to get their hands on the bargain.
To make it even better, the Primark lipstick is also cruelty-free, which gives it major kudos in our books.
This budget mascara is definitely proof that makeup doesn’t need to break the bank in order to work hard.
