Amazing £1 shop beauty buys - Really???

Friday, August 02, 2013

I was on the way for my train last week when I thought id pick up some refreshments from the £1 shop on my way past. I had an extra 5 mins so thought I'd have a little browse and oh boy aren't I glad I did.

I found myself at the beauty isle always one for a bargain and couldn't believe all the drugstore brands they had in there. Everything from Sally Hansen to Wet and Wild and Rimmel.

Firstly I picked up a Makeup bag as mine was coming to the end of its life and I fell in love with the cute little pattern.

I also picked up a Wet and Wild blush in the shade Naive. As I have always wanted to try this brand as seen a few things on you tube about them.

I then went on to buy a nail art set which wasn't very good but for £1.00 I'm not that upset about it. It was buy a brand called Allure so think I will stay away from these products.

I then purchased 2 lip products both by Rimmel one was a lipstick in shade 122 Stylish this Is a shimmery brown colour which I felt I needed a lipstick like this in my collection as I only seem to own pinks reds and purples.

I then picked up the moisture renew lipgloss in Pink Protect as this has vitamins A,C and E in the ingredients and feel at this time of year my lips can benefit from this.

I had to rush so didn't get chance to rummage through the shelves but I did go back a few day later for a further forage, this time for a challenge but this will be another post!

Has anyone found some good buys in their local £1 shop?

  1. Wow... so much nice stuffs for a cheap price!

    I want to invite you to join my first giveaway! It only takes 2 minutes to finish the entries.

  2. I don't have a $1 shop, it's kinda irritating because I wouldn't mind so much trying drugstore things even if they didn't work for me if they were only $1.

    1. Yes I can try thing I don't normally because its just a £1 Cx

  3. I love them. The make up is old stock from brands but still an amazing bargain.
    I recently got the Dainty Dolls eye shadow's from one. They're only £1.99 on Fragrance Direct but still I saved 99p on each one. Can't complain there.
    I've also gotten Sleek lipsticks and Stila make up in there too.

    Definitely worth checking out, especially if you have a poundland and poundworld so close together - they compete with each other and try and get the best stock in stores. Therefore more make up for us to buy :D
