Bargain Beauty Shopping Splurge

Poundland isn’t usually a store I would go to for beauty products but after seeing several bloggers picking up some brand name cosmetics I decided to venture in and see what goodies I could get.

My local store had some NYC lipglosses as well as Rimmel and Dainty Doll eyeshadow kits. I don’t wear eyeshadow all that often and when I do I tend to stick to Sleek or Benefit. The Revlon nail polish looks slightly lighter than my Rimmel in Purple Rain but for £1 I can’t really justify NOT buying it! I’m a fan of the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation so I’m eager to try the radiance shimmer touch in Radiant Rose.

I then went to Superdrug where Maybelline had a 2 for £10 offer on some of their products. As I intended to buy the Rocket Volum’ Express mascara which would have cost me £7.99 on it’s own, I snapped up the Dream Satin Liquid. Not the best foundation I’ve ever used but it’s not bad, certainly better than the mousse which does not like my skin. Jade of Diamonds & Faith has raved about the mascara, even claiming it’s better than Benefit‘s They’re Real! so I have high hopes for it, I’ll let you know my thoughts soon.


After complaining about a brassiness to my hair this silver shampoo was recommended by several people. Hoping it will tone down the yellow!


Do you know of any surprise places in which to pick up a beauty bargain?
