PS... Beauty My Perfect Colour shade extension, review, before & after photos

I've had a few hit and miss experiences when it comes to PS... Beauty, or Primark Beauty, or Penneys Beauty, but let me say that their foundations are among the best I've tried (and I've tried a lot, both budget and high end).

They've relaunched the My Perfect Colour range recently and along with adding extra shades, they've  a grand total of 180 products in the collection now, including the new addition, the PS... My Perfect Colour Ultra Longwear Concealer.

I went to the relaunch event recently, got colour matched and have been getting stuck into some of the products since.  Paula Callan did my makeup on the day and after chatting about my skin type and what kind of finish I prefer, we decided to try the PS... My Perfect Colour Matte Foundation and gals, I'm in proper love.  I'll talk to you about the oil-free formula and the matte finish that this gives in a second, but can we take a moment for the fact that this is €4.  I'm not missing another number from that price.  It's four quid.  And it's far outperforming some of my higher end bases.


I have an oily t-zone and normal cheeks and this sits beautifully across my whole mush.  I've used my usual buffing brushes and makeup sponges to apply it and both ways gives a flawless yet natural looking finish to the skin.  I got matched to the shade Nude 05 and I'd say I could've gone a shade lighter, but once I bring it down my neck, it's all good.


It has a yellow undertone to it which I like in a foundation because it cancels out any redness, as you can see below and the big red nose on me in the before photo.  This foundation is absolutely beautiful on and it dries to a matte finish but still gives a subtle radiance too.  It does a stellar job of keeping oil production at bay thanks to the silica and I barely have to touch it up during the day.  It feels really lightweight, it doesn't look cakey and I'm fully into this gals.


On the day, Paula used a couple of other products on me that I'll go into at a later stage, but I wanted to show you the PS... My Perfect Colour Foundation Pressed Powder in the shade Chestnut.  It's a measly €2.50 and Paula used this as a bronzer on the day, so I wanted to show it to you as well because it's not something I'd have thought of picking up myself.  I'd have just picked it up in my regular shade and I probably will anyway to give it a go, but if you're on the hunt for a budget friendly bronzer/contour that can be used on the eyes too, look no further.


A little goes a long way with this shade so when applying it as a bronzer, make sure to use a nice big fluffy brush so that it doesn't deposit too much colour in one place.  And the same goes for when applying it to the eyes.  A fluffy brush can be used to both blend and pack the colour on and it works so well on both the face and eyes.


I was going to say if you're on a budget and want to try out some makeup, but stopped myself because even if you're not on a budget, you should definitely check these out.  They've got a whole range of foundations to suit different skin types, with different textures too and the most expensive product is €6.  As we all say, "Sure where would you be going?!"

The My Perfect Colour range is available in Penneys now, so you know what to do!

@primark.beauty have relaunched their My Perfect Colour range and they’ve only gone and added some new shades and some new products too, making a total of 180 products in the whole collection. I got colour matched at their event recently and fell in love with the products that @paula_callan_makeup used on my face that day, so I decided to try and recreate what she did. I tried Paula, I really did! See the foundation? That’s the PS… My Perfect Colour Matte Foundation and it’s only €4 but I love it over some of my higher end foundations. The finish is gorgeous and it stays put all day. And because I was feeling fancy with the video, I actually used concealer (I rarely do because I’m fierce lazy) but the Ultra Longwear Concealer is nice and lightweight and while it says it gives full coverage, I’d say it’s more on the medium side and it doesn’t dry out the under eye area thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid. I set the concealer with the Luminous Glow Light Reflecting Setting Powder which is really finely milled and a little stunner of a powder. And because I wanted to use all of the products given to me on the day of the event, I went in with a layer of the Loose Mineral Powder. I’m not usually a fan of loose mineral powders as foundations, but I’ll give this a go on its own and report back. But as far as a setting powder on a foundation that doesn’t actually need setting, it’s gorgeous and left me looking airbrushed. On the day of the event, Paula used the Foundation Pressed Powder in shade Chestnut to contour and that’s what I did today too and it makes for a great eyeshadow too. I wanted to complete the face so used this blush from @essence_ireland which is a lovely dusky pink that’s buildable and really wearable. As for the highlight, the formula is lovely but the shade just isn’t for me. It’s too cool toned and I prefer a less blue and more champagne highlight. But you might love it! Thanks for watching! #lovelygirliebits #lovelygirliebits1minutevideo #lovelygirliebitsigtv #budgetbeauty #primarkbeauty #myperfectcolour
