So who would have known that Poundland stock branded make up? Now obviously I’m not talking department store brands, but high street brands such as Maybelline New York and Rimmel London. I picked up these three items on a recent trip. A Maybelline cover up stick in Nude Beige, Rimmel blusher in Summer Fever, and Rimmel quad shadow in Smokey Brun.  I love the colours in the blusher, rosey pink shades are my fav! Here’s a swatch of the cover up…

It is a great girly day out featuring over 500…

I thought that since I’ve bought quite a lot of new clothes lately for my winter wardrobe, I would start posting an ‘outfit of the day’ post every so often.
