I pop into my local pound shop on a regular basis, mostly for boring stuff like toothpaste and batteries. On the odd occasion i have picked up a few beauty products – Toni and Guy miniature shampoo, Simple face wipes and Dove hand cream. Nothing too exciting, but lately I have been impressed with their makeup. Who would have thought? You need to be super quick to grab these. I have bought Maybelline eyeshadows, Revlon lipgloss & Wet n Wild eyebrow kit. I will show these in a later post, but what i am most excited about are the Sally Hansen Nail Polish.
I picked up 5 colours along with a couple of Revlon ones too. I havent had time to photograph them all yet but i have tried and tested two colours — Both are from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection and are the colours Casting Call (a coral orange) and Delphinium (a lovely light lilac). Both are great spring colours.
The Casting Call is a creamy coral colour. The brushes on these polishes are quite wide and I find this applies the polish really easily. Two coats of this and a top coat are what i used and it really shines with a top coat. It lasted for 4 days without chipping and i kept it on for 5 days and it still look great.
Delphinium is a soft lilac and is such a subtle spring colour. Again i used two coats of this and a top coat i only kept this on for 3 days but it hadn’t chipped and wears really well. The brush again is wider than the regular nail polish brush which i actually like. Each polish has 14.7ml in which is a really good amount and for only £1 you can’t go wrong. I have been so impressed with these and would pay more for them in the future if i saw other colours I liked. They are great quality and really pigmented in colour.
What have been your best pound shop bargains? Do you shop in their? I love a great bargain and get so excited when i find a beauty bargain. Double yay!
