Pound Shop Finds ♥

Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I’ve been watching far too many episodes of The Undateables on my iPad in bed (how had I never seen this before?!). I’ve also not been shopping since Boxing Day so I haven’t had much blogging material, but I’ve collected together some of my most recent pound shop purchases, including some branded beauty buys and cute homewares.

I picked up these four Rimmel beauty products all in one sweep at my local Poundland store recently! I was really pleased to have found them, any my mini haul included the Scandaleyes gel eyeliner, Colour Rush lip crayon, Apocalips lip lacquer, and Space Dust nail polish. Unfortunately I didn’t realise the gel liner was blue, I thought it would be black! But it is really nice to use, and sells for £7 in Boots. 
The Colour Rush balm crayon is my favourite new bargain product, which is a hot pink colour, and usually sells for £6. I’ve bought the Apocalips lacquer in the past at full price, so I couldn’t resist buying it for only £1 rather than £6 when I saw it! And finally, the lovely pink glittery Star Dust nail polish is a new top product of mine, as I love the fairly neutral colour with a bit of sparkle, and is usually £4.
 I bought these goodies from the 99p Store, which doesn’t usually tend to have much in the way of cosmetics, but they do sometimes have a few nice pieces. The Revlon nail polish I’ve been wearing for 2 weeks now and I really like the simple shade. I also picked up a Baby Lips lip balm in cherry flavour which I bought for my niece and she loves! And also I’ve always loved the tinted Applelicious lip balms from NYC and unfortunately they seem to be being discontinued now, so I picked one up before they go!

I also got this royal blue colour L’oreal Paris nail polish from Poundland recently, it’s such a lovely bold shade! I bought quite a few of these last year too, they seem to go in and out of stock.
 These skincare products I bought from the 99p Store which is a brand new shop in my town. They have some really good branded items and I picked up these three including the Clearasil Refreshing Pads, Olay Day Lotion, and Garnier Vanishing Cream. I don’t think these products are generally sold in the UK, but they’re genuine branded products and these ones seem to have South African labels on.
Also from the 99p store, I bought this L’oreal Paris Elseve quick oil repair treatment. To use it, you use after shampooing, leave for a few minutes and then rinse it out. I think this product was originally for the Eastern market, but it’s great!
 I bought these two hair ‘cleansers’ from Home Bargains as I was intrigued by their 49p price! When I got home I Googled them and these mini bottles sell for almost £6 from Look Fantastic! They’re only 75ml so not full size, but I thought I’d give them a try for the 49p, and they have good reviews on Amazon.   

 Poundland have lots of new baking goodies in a range designed by baker Jane Asher. The range includes lots of cake decorations that are only two for £1, so I picked up these pink pearls and white chocolate stars for my next baking afternoon!
 These beautiful pink dinner plates are from Poundland and I love the polka dot and floral pattern. I think they’re a great buy for only £1 each! They had the bowls and side plates etc too to make up a whole bargain vintage dinner set.
 They also had this cute mini cake stand in a few cute pastel colours, I couldn’t resist it! Although I’m unsure what I’ll use it for… 
 I think Daisy Patch designs are really cute, so I also picked up this slimline diary from Poundland, to try and help me keep organised now it’s the new year!

    Loving your finds in the 99p store and Poundland. I always like to go in time to time to browse and look for bargains they have to offer, specially Poundland. You never know what you find.
    Loving the shade of Loreal nail polish, I never knew they even did Loreal!

    You always find so many good deals, how lucky! I never find any good makeup when I go in Poundland unfortunately. Would have loved the Apocalips, the colour is gorgeous!

    I use the plates and side plates in my tea room as the pink dots match the tablecloths!
    Loving your beauty bargains too!

    Great finds! I tried to look for the Rimmel stuff I've seen people finding but ours didn't have a thing! Howvever, I am trying not to buy any more budget makeup really because I have far too much. So perhaps it was a good thing for me. I did however, find a lot of nice thrifty clothes which I'll be posting about soon. Not in poundland but a equally cheap shop 🙂

    I love a good thrifty haul from the Poundstore. You found some adorable bits there, I recently found a mason jar glass with lid and stripy straw from my Poundstore- it's amazing what you find in there!!
