Who’d of thought it eh? The pound shop do makeup – that’s right the pound shop, like what? So I thought I’d give it a go..I set about testing branded pound shop makeup – what’s the worst that can happen?
Well… When you picture the pound shop doing makeup, it kinda makes you think of a dingy warehouse chucking chemicals into cheap plastic pots to make a cheap makeup brand. BUT WAIT IS THAT MAYBELLINE I SEE? Yep got it in one! They sell Maybelline makeup – you heard it here first girls! I’ve had a nosey at other branded pound shops and they seem to sell all kinds of makep like Rimmel too!
24 Hour Tattoo Eye Pot
Well, I actually paid full price for this in Crem De Nude only two weeks ago! My purse is currently crying because I managed to pick up the same product for £4 cheaper in the pound shop! I bagged myself a pot in the colour endless purple. The swatch really doesn’t do it justice, it comes out in a gorgeous creamy two toned purple. Be warned you don’t need a lot of product and have your fluffy blending brush at the ready!
Hello Kitty Eyeliner
This was a fun purchase for a blog post I’m currently writing for julietturnsthepage.com I wouldn’t recommend this product at all. It comes out flakey and drys within seconds of placing it on your eye – and not in a good way! Let’s leave the liner to the pros, sorry kitty!
Maybelline Lasting Glossy Liquid Eyeliner in Silver
This came out lush in colour. You can see in the images, it almost has a two tone green tinge to it. If you’re looking for something a bit different and not wanting to splurge the cash I would give this a go. I found it looked stunning with ambers, purples and metallic brown tones.
What do you think? What did you make of my testing review? Would you give Pound shop makeup a go?
