IF YOU’RE A PENNEYS addict, you’ll have noticed that they’ve seriously stepped up their beauty department as of late.

There is a LOT of choice, so how do you know which products are worth a whirl? Let us point you in the right direction.

1. PS… Love Lip Liners, €1.50

These liners are smooth, pigmented, easy to apply, and cheaper than your bus fare.

The cult shade is the nude, which is almost always sold out – its resemblance to the much pricier Mac Soar liner is probably the reason why.

2. PS… Contouring Crayons, €3.50

Each set contains three crayons – two dark contouring shades and one highlight – and are a very easy and cheap way to try contouring without dropping serious $$$ on a palette.

3. Makeup Brush Cleanser, €2.50

Day 24: Fave Beauty Product is this Penneys Brush Cleaner for cleaning my Makeup Brushes !! #SFAPRILCHALLENGE #makeup #BeautyFave #Penneys #primark Source: Instagram/stylish_and_fabulous

This stuff is MAGIC. Perfect for cleaning your eyeshadow and powder brushes in between deep cleanses.

4. Individual Eye Lashes, €1.50

You just gotta love @primark lashes & #duolashglue #penneyslashes #penneysbest & put em on with @thevintagecosco #tweezers #lashes #lashesonfleek #makeup #face #beauty #mua #stylist #fblogger #cloggers #instafashion #instadaily #instapic #beautifulthings #thebeautmum#mariebarrymurphybeautifulthings #irishblbinspire Source: Instagram/beautifulthing15

Another product that flies off the shelves, these single lashes are good quality for the price (similar sets from Eylure cost €7-€10).

5. Super Matte Liquid Lipstick, €2.50

I'm in love with this PS...Super Matte Liquid Lipstick! First impression/Review up on the blog! Link in the bio #liquidlipstick #pssupermatteliquidlipstick #pslove #primark #rose #review #firstimpression #blogger Source: Instagram/everydayamyblog

Penneys have managed to circumvent common liquid lipstick problems to create one that’s not too drying (because matte lipsticks will always be drying) and which doesn’t flake off throughout the day. Yasss.

6. Matte Lip Crayons, €2.50

These are clearly inspired by the Nars lipsticks of the same name, but without that Nars price. There’s a surprisingly good selection of colours, from bright reds and pinks to purples.

7. Blending Sponge, €1.50

If you’re of the opinion that it’d be mad to spend €24 on a Beauty Blender, but want to try something similar – here’s your in.

This one works best when blending out concealer under the eyes.

8. Makeup Fixing Spray, €2.50

The aerosol can sprays a fine mist over your face (unlike pump-action bottles that soak you) and reviews indicate that it keeps your makeup in place all day. Result.

Now you can navigate the Penneys beauty section with confidence. Good luck!
