I must admit, up until a couple of weeks ago I thought that Poundland was just full of rubbish makeup that I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole, let alone put on my skin! After reading A Thrifty Mrs’ blog and watching her youtube videos, I was inspired to have a look in my local and see what bargains I could pick up.
Stila Tinted Moisturiser – This had me going into Poundland everyday before work to see if they had the light shade in. It took me two weeks but I finally found it in the shade ’03 Light’ which is a bit too dark for me but I snatched up two bottles anyway. I haven’t used it yet but I’m looking forward to trying it out.
Elegant Touch Vanilla Sparkle Nail Polish – I picked this up because it looked cute and promised a vanilla scent. I think this would work better as a top coat as I used three coats and it still wasn’t opaque, however I love the glittery strands and it’s different to all the other glittery nail polishes I own.
Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara – I actually nearly bought this in Superdrug one day for £4.99 but decided to google it for reviews first. The next day I found it in Poundland! The brush is quite hard to get used to as it has both short and long bristles. It’s not the best mascara I’ve ever used but I like it. However, I bought it because I wanted a waterproof mascara. This was put to the test when I ended up crying on a train. I thought it would be alright and I’d just have red eyes – nope, I had red eyes and mascara all down my face. Embarrassing.
ChitChat Rio Nail Polish – This is a good dupe for OPI’s Rainbow Connection and Models Own Ibiza Mix although the colours are more like the OPI one. I’m really pleased I found this as I can use it as much as I want without feeling too guilty as it was only £1.
What do you think about shopping in Poundland? Have you found any bargains in there?
