Mid-Month Cheap Treats

Poundland_Makeup_Haul

 A mini mid-month haul for you today full of cheap products that have really impressed me.

All the products above came in at under £8, saving around £13... which is pretty damn good if you ask me!

    Now I'm not necessarily on a budget however I love saving money on products that I would have been tempted to buy at full price in Boots or Superdrug... I always think I'd be one of those people that still love a bargain even after winning the lottery! Also this month I decided to try out two pound shop own branded products and was pleasantly surprised.

Maybelline_Color_Tattoo_Metallic_Pomegranate

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate 
eBay - £3.84 free p&p here (normally £4.99)
This is my first eyeshadow purchase in maybe over a year! I had far too many neutral smokey eyeshadow shades so I placed myself on a bit of a ban... until I spotted this amazing shade last week. The swatch above really doesn't do it enough justice, but as you can see from the pot it's an absolutely amazing colour and so rich. I've never tried any of the Maybelline Color Tattoos before but if this is anything to go by I will be getting a few more. Cannot wait to wear this come Autumn now!

Rimmel Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Radiant Rose 
Poundland - £1 (normally £4.99) 
I was quite surprised when I spotted this in Poundland last week as these were only brought out by Rimmel last year as part of their Wake Me Up line. I had been tempted to try one of these in the past but the frugal side of me decided against it due to the dinky 14ml tube... but now I can see that the reason for this is that is it more of a cream blush/highlighter and will last absolutely ages! This is well worth popping into your local Poundland to see if they have any as for £1 it is a complete steal. This is another product that I think will be perfect for autumn as it's such a radiance boosting cream blush that will look so natural and glowy.

Argan Oil Hydrating Hair Mask 225ml
Pound World - £1
This was a purchase on recommendation from Maxi of The Lipstick Blog as she had been raving about the Argan Oil range that can be found in Poundland (also hear some of the range is in B&M Bargains and Tesco stores). For a mere £1 this really is a good hair mask and rivals branded hair masks found in Boots/Superdrug! It's lovely and thick and leaves the hair feeling so soft after use. Very impressed with this. 
 
Chit Chat Juicy Lipstick in Coral
Poundland - £1 
A random lip crayon purchase whilst I was in Poundland last week. This was the only one left so it wouldn't have been my first choice but I thought I'd get it to see how it compared to other lip crayons and also to see the texture and wear of it. I have only swatched it so far so I can't say much, other than it looks like a nice fairly sheer, glossy lip crayon. It also comes out a lovely coral shade that does look quite juicy. I'm sure I will end up picking a few more of these up for £1.

Sally_Hansen_Xtreme_Wear 

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Just For Fun Fuchsia & Wet Cement 
Poundland - £1 for both!
Last but not least I picked up two Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polishes for 50p each as they came in a pack of two! I have only just discovered the Xtreme Wear range and actually had my eye on Wet Cement which I was going to purchase from eBay, so this was a very lucky find! Just For Fun Fuchsia is a little on the watery side but I love the pearl blue tone to it so will definitely be applying it over other pink shades I own. As for Wet Cement I really love it and again it will be one to wear as we move in to autumn, maybe paired with a gold glitter top coat.

Pound World and Poundland are both excellent stores to pick up branded high street makeup such as Rimmel and Revlon and you can always find some great nail polishes as well. Great if you're on a budget or just want to be savvy!

Fee xo.
