Poundland Makeup

Stila Tinted Moisturiser - Elegant Touch Vanilla Sparkle Nail Polish - Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara - Chit Chat Rio Nail Polish

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?


  1. I bought the Stila tinted moisturiser the other day, only tried it a couple of times but I really like it. I also tried the ChitChat highlighter (which is supposed to be a dupe for High Beam) and it's also pretty good. I'm all about cheap but good makeup:) x

  2. Ooh I need to check my Poundland for these goodies! :)

  3. Your Poundland is about 10x better than any near me! TK Maxx is also really good for Stila, Nails Inc, Opi and Essie!

  4. I love Poundland bargains, that nail varnish looks great

  5. Oh my god I need to go to Poundland! That Stila tinted moisturiser was my favourite for a while, but I was too cheap to repurchase! Definitely going to try and hunt it down xx

  6. I'd really like a glittery nail varnish like this, but the ones I've seen on others blogs are like £1000 (slight exaggeration lol)
    Poundland has gotten fabulous recently!xo xo

  7. Stila, in Poundland?! Oh my gosh, I'm going to have to suck it up and venture in there as soon as humanly possible and cross my fingers that our branch stocks make-up! (:
