I have heard both great and bad things about Poundland in the past in terms of selling some high end / high street make-up, obviously for £1. I was always a bit dubious and I was never really willing to have a look but after walking past a large poundland store the other day I decided to bite the bullet and have a look around. Its safe to say I am every glad I did. I came out with 6 things, obviously resulting in £6 spent.
I really cant believe some of the brands they stock! They stock products which have either been discontinued or having been moved by another retailer in an attempt to free up warehouse space or as a last attempt to make some revenue after being stocked in leading retailers such as boots.
Astor perfect Stay Lip Tint in 150 Bols de Rose - I couldn't find an original price anywhere apart from at www.thecosmetichouse.co.uk, where they state it normally retails at £10.99, however I am not completely sure of this.
Rimmel powder blush 041 bronze - £3.99
Rimmel soft kohl kajal eye pencil 011 sable brown - £2.99
Rimmel scandaleyes eyeshadow paint 002 late grey - £4.99
= meaning if I bought all the items at full price it would result in £44.96 being spent
In the future I can see poundland visits a regular thing, but next time include some other bargain shops to see what they have to offer. I am aware many people are against buying in these shops for various reasons, I have read lots of blog posts against buying in these shops due to not being aware of the expiry date, however none of the products I had bought were pre opened and I wont ever buy nail polishes as they do tend to go 'wrong' being in any incorrect condition. I now find poundland shops as a great way for some people who don't always have a lot of money to spend or for bargain hunters to go wild on cosmetics.
Whats your opinion on poundland makeup?
