Poundland Makeup!

I'm currently trying to live off a mega tight budget, so after seeing numerous posts about Poundland stocking makeup for £1, I thought to myself "Hmmm, I shall definitely have to go take a look at this!", so off I skipped to my local town and had a look around Poundland. All of their makeup is stocked in little see through plastic bags, so you can't test the colours, but I managed to pick up 3 Sally Hansen nail polishes in "Time To Shine", "Emerald City" and "Purple Pizzazz" and a Rimmel Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss Duo in Cherry Blossom (which is now my new favourite lip product!) all for just £4, perfect! 

I love the Rimmel lasting finish gloss, the base colour dries so quickly and doesn't smudge (see pic below for evidence that the red doesn't come off on the clear gloss brush)

I know they look a bit overinflated here, but my lips are 100% real and natural, I swear!! :) as you can see from the above pic, the red base colour really does dry to perfection, there is no colour transfer to the clear gloss brush (which is really handy, because normally my clear glosses go a strange shade of pink after being mixed with numerous different red lipsticks)

Look how red my lips are! I love this stuff :D it also lasts for ages and I didn't have to reapply for a good few hours, it's also drink proof - I didn't leave any red lip marks on my coffee cup or anything :)

The Sally Hansen nail varnishes are pretty damn awesome too, I especially love the Emerald City one, it's a beautiful bottle green shade and really suits my pale skin.

I haven't tested out Purple Pizzazz or Time to Shine yet, but I'm sure I'll do a review of them soon! all in all, I'm definitely happy with my Poundland purchases! Have you ever bought any makeup from a discount store?

I picked up some bargains in poundland recently too, including the Rimmel lasting gloss its really good:) I also found some Revlon colourstay eyeshadows, Rimmel cream bronzer and their glam eyes mono shadows <3

I didn't see the nail varnish in my local one but maybe I should check again next time Im in town, they look great!
