I always enjoy shopping in Poundland as they get new makeup stock in quite regularly and if you happen to pop in at the right time, you can get some really great bargains.
Poundland often sell products from popular drugstore makeup brands such as Rimmel, L'Oreal and Maybelline in addition to other lesser known brands, some foreign brands and more recently, their own Makeup Gallery brand.
I was lucky enough to find a few lovely makeup bargains from Rimmel in Poundland recently and I was delighted to pick up FIVE RIMMEL MAKEUP Products for a FIVER!
Thisis a gorgeous red plum lipstick that feels buttery smooth, has great pigmentation and even smells nice!
Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss Lipstick // 02 // 4g // RRP £5.49 // Only £1! //SAVING £4.49
This is a beautiful lipstick from the popular Kate Moss line. It's a gorgeous hot pink shade that leans slightly towards coral. Once again, the pigmentation is really good and the formula feels smooth and creamy.
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick // 011 Bluffing // RRP £4.49 // Only £1! // SAVING £3.49
I'm not usually a massive fan of cream eye shadow type products but this is something that I though I would try as it was only £1 and I'm happy to say that I do like it! This makes a great quick an easy one colour eye shadow and it also works quite well as a cream base for other neutral eye shadows. This colour is a lovely, on trend metallic bronze shade which has great colour pay-off and it well on my eyelids without creasing which is always a plus!
Rimmel London Salon Pro Nail Polish // 421 Clearly Clear // 12ml // RRP £4.49 // Only £1! // SAVING £3.49
I can't get enough of clear nail polish as it's so useful as a base / top coat, it always looks nice on it's own and it's also great for painting over fashion jewellery rings to help prevent that dreaded 'green finger syndrome'! I haven't tried this yet but I've heard good things about it and the inclusion of Lycra as an ingredient sounds seriously interesting!
Rimmel London Glam Eyes HD Eye Shadow Quad // 002 English Oak // RRP £4.99 // Only £1! // SAVING £3.99
I've passed up on these types of quads when I've seen them in Poundland before as I feel that although the Union Jack design is cute, it's also very impractical as some of the shades are compacted into tiny triangles which are very hard to get at with an eye shadow brush! However, because this was such a nice neutral palette, I decided to try it as I very much enjoy wearing these types of shades at the moment. The pigmentation on these is fabulous once again and they blend well too. All of the shades are shimmery and it would have been nice to have a matte shade in there too but this is still a very nice little eye shadow palette overall!
A lot of the branded drugstore makeup that Poundland sells is often still current and available from places like Boots and Superdrug for 3, 4, or even 5 times the price!
I think that purchasing makeup from Poundland is a great way to buy makeup on a budget and build up your makeup collection without spending a fortune.
So there you go, FIVE RIMMEL MAKEUP products for a FIVER! As you can see, I saved a great deal off the RRP on all of these products and collectively I managed to save £20.95 in total which is great!
Do you or would you ever consider buying makeup / toiletries from Pound Shops?
