Poundland Haul

I have heard great things about Poundland in terms of cosmetics so couldn't resist popping in the other day. I came away with 4 items for, you've guessed it, £4! 

I was excited to see dainty doll because in the winter I am as pale as can be and read lots about Nicola Roberts range when it was first released. The products were eye-shadows. 

They come in this really cute little compact. This one didn't have a little mirror in the lid, but I believe that if you buy the item full price  then you get a little mirror. For £1 though I am not going to complain. 

There were 4 shades to chose from and I went for Copacabana, which the white label on the bag informed me was a blue shade. It really is an electric blue and is not too powdery when you put it on which I love. I can't wait to try this on a night out (probably a bit too vivid for day-to-day wear!)

Items number 2 and 3 are Maybelline Eye-shadow duos. I bought one of these in black from a Poundland in Reading, but they only had the one colour and I have almost used it all up already. In this Poundland, they had a whole host... I could have been VERY naughty! They come with a useful mini applicator and contain two shadows: one is a shiny colour and the other is flaky silver, almost like little bits of silver leaf. 

The colours stay really well and layered with the silver look great on a night out. I have also taken just to wearing the silver as it adds a bit of glitter to a day-to-day outfit. 

Item number 4 was this OPI Shatter nail varnish. The first thing I noticed was the size of the bottle... it's massive! Unlike other shatter effect nail varnish I have tried before, this one wasn't too gloppy and went on my nail so easily. I will post a photo later :)

So overall, a good, cheap haul and a great way to try out new things. I am going to venture into the creams and potions later I think!
