This purchase was definitely one of those completely random ones. I'd heard a couple of people mention the lip liners from Primark however I never really gave them much thought. I'm not even sure I've heard the liquid lipsticks mention however I decided for £3 I may as well give a liner and a liquid lipstick a go.
So lets start with packaging, I think for the price the packaging's pretty nice. I like the black and gold and I really love the way the lip liner shows the colour on the lid and the end making it easy to choose which one you want if you have a few. The packaging of the lipstick actually feels super sturdy and I was impressed by the brush too. The only thing I will say is that the writing is beginning to rub off the front of mine however I did walk round in Primark with it in my hand for ages so that could be why.
I wasn't sure what to expect of the lip liner, I find some really inexpensive lip liners can be incredibly drying and difficult to work with. However I found it was creamy but not to creamy that it felt like it wasn't going to hold anything in place. As for the colour I am 100% in love with it. I would describe it as a very mauve-y nude. I think the shade is called 09 however it isn't very clear so I'm not 100% sure. Against swatches I've seen on the internet this shade seems in the same family as the likes of Mac Whirl and Soar. So if you are into those kind of shades then I'd highly recommend this liner.
As for the liquid lipstick I wasn't sure what to expect as it doesn't actually state what finish it is. As for the applicator I really love it, at first I thought it put to much product on the lips however as I worked it into the lips I realised that it worked best for spreading the product out once on the lips rather than applying and even layer straight onto the lips. I do like the formula of the product once it's dried however it is a little bit of a pain waiting for it to dry as it is super sticky while it's drying.
