On Wednesday I did a post on the Primark Lion King Highlight Palette, I got the Primark and Disney Lion Kind Wild Side Eyeshadow Palette at the same time. The bad thing about Primark makeup is how hard it can be to find, at least in the stores near me, so if you find these and want them get them rather than waiting for it. I made that mistake with a couple of the Lion King range so I’ve probably missed out on them.

The eyeshadow palette is fairly small, though it holds nine eyeshadows, I think eight of them are slightly smaller and there’s a large on in the middle. There is a range of finishes but the majority are definitely shimmer, a couple almost metallic, with one matte and two I’d say are satin maybe. I love the way they’ve names each of the colours to tie in with the Lion King theme and the colour range definitely fits the African savannah colours. As with the highlighter palette these eyeshadows are all cruelty free and the palette sells for £6.

I saw the Primark Lion King range and I had to get some of it, I really wish I’d bought the chalk board and the cushion when I saw them in my local about a month ago but I haven’t seen them since. I did go to another Primark fairly near to me and found the makeup products so I had to get both the highlighting and the eyeshadow palette. The eyeshadow review will be up on Saturday and you can find it here if you want to check back to see swatches from that.

This highlighting palette has four highlighters in it in a range of shades, there’s a pink base and a golden base that are more of a glow, a deeper brown that’s great for darker skin tones, and a sort of peachy more glittery highlight. The palette costs £5 and these are decent sized pans with 4.5g in each one. It’s also cruelty free, which is great, and I love the cute packaging they’ve done for these, even if mine’s a bit damaged looking.
