As the heading states this is my Pound Shop haul.
Not the 1st place you would think of going to when adding to your make up collection and to be fair i didn't go in there to buy make up but when you see named brand make up for £1 its pretty hard to say No!
So i of course i said Yes and here is what i came home with...
As you can see they come in little clear pouches they had lots of other make up but everything i picked up happened to be Maybelline products.
The 1st thing that caught my eye was this lipstick. Yes the price helped but also the pretty pink lipstick packaging.
Its the Maybelline Watershine lipstick in 145 Pink Diamonds.
Its a truly dazzling lipstick with a gorgeous pigment and shine.
It has tiny particles of glitter in it but it doesn't feel at all rough on the lips. I've had glittery lipsticks and glosses in the past that have felt really gritty on the lips but this feels really creamy and glides on the lips.
I found the watershine lipgloss in Superdrug for £4.59
The second lipstick i picked up was this gorgeous rich pink/brown one.
Its the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 630 Velvet Beige.
Again a really creamy lipstick it has a lip balm feel and smell to it but with a rich colour too.
It doesn't have quite as much shine as the watershine lipstick but it does have a healthy light sheen to it.
I found it on the Boots website for £7.19
The next thing i got was a clear polish.
When buying nail varnish i'm always drawn to pretty colour and never even give the clear polish a glance hence my gloopy clear polish sat among my colourful collection.
In all honesty i admit that maybe the price had a little something to do with this purchase but also the fact that in dries in 40 seconds, i hate to think of the amount of time us ladies have wasted waiting for our nails to dry blowing them and flapping our wet fingernails around to hurry them up.
I haven't timed its drying time but it does dry pretty quickly its not quite as shinny as i would have liked but its perfect for bottom or top coats.
Maybelline Express finish in 01 Transparent.
I found it on the Boots website for £4.09
I picked up 2 eye products the 1st being a mascara.
Its the Maybelline Lash Stiletto.
I haven't used this yet but when i do i will blog a review.
The only thing that im not sure about with this mascara is that its brown.
I am a black mascara, black eyeliner type of girl but for £1 im willing to give it ago who knows i might just love it.
I have read that if you have blue eyes (which i do) Brown is the colour to go for to bring out the true blue i your eyes.
I couldn't find this exact mascara but i did manage to find the Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voliptuous mascara on the Boots website for £8.19!!
The last thing i purchased was this eyeshadow pallet.
A set of four eye shadows in the form of:
Maybellines eye studio in the colour 02 vivid plums.
I absolutely love this i am a huge fan of blending colours together to create different looks. I very rarely wear just one colour of eyeshadow i enjoy finding similar colours in different tones and creating smoky, smouldering looks so this is perfect for me.
My usual choice of colours to blend are different tones of browns but the colours in this are really beautiful subtle frosted purples.
I think this would be great for a beginner that wants to practice the art of blending as each shadow is numbered. 1-4
On the back of the shadows are instructions of where to place the numbered shadows.
Which i think is a great idea of course you can also use the shadows seperately as you wish but its nice to have the option.
I found it on the Boots website for £7.19.
So that's an amazing £31.25 worth of make up for just £5!
So ladies next time your shopping i would definitely recommend nipping into your Pound Shop and having a look if there are any name brand make up bargains to be had.
