Makeup Gallery || Testing Poundland Makeup

Hey guys,

I decided to follow the crowd and give Poundland makeup a go and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

I spent less than £20 on a full face which if you're a student on a budget or just don't want to spend that much on makeup is great. I'd say give this brand a try.

I wasn't too impressed with the foundation or concealer as the shades and coverage were pants but the face powder, bronzer and blush were actually pretty good. Slightly powdery but not enough to put me off.

The metallic eyeshadows were lovely! Especially Pink Champayne which I used as a highlighter. They were very soft and didn't have any fall out so yay to that!

I loved the black liquid liner! It had a small brush and I was able to draw a semi decent wing with liquid liner for the first time! I'm normally a felt tip liner girl. Lol.

Mostly as I have hooded lids I was happy to see that the liner didn't transfer on my upper lid so this will definitely be a keeper.

The glitter liners were OK, my only issue was I had to keep dipping my brush in the tube to get the product to show.

The brow pencil was good. Firm enough to get nice hair like strokes and had good pigmentation. The lip liner however was awful! Too hard with no colour unless I pressed really hard and I kinda like my lips without bruises ;)

Overall I'd say this brand was a win. Yes I personally had some duds but I was able to make them work and for £1 each it's not going to to annoy you if it doesn't work out.

I also did a first impressions video on my channel so if you fancy a watch you can find it here.

Have you tried Makeup Gallery? What do you think? 

Much Love,

  2. I tried a lot of this as well, and was so impressed! The eyeshadow and blusher were definite winners for me. The lipstick came off straight away though!
    I didn't try the liquid liner, but will give it a go, as I'm definitely a felt-tip style person too xx

  3. I haven't tried any of their make up but what great value for money for the items you liked x

  4. Your make up is amazing. Have you thought about doing lessons - I'm in complete awe! Soooooo pretty. I've been reading your blog from the start, it's fascinating. I'm not even a girly girl and have eczema so not into makeup but you've had me enthralled. I'm also a former pmdd sufferer, so feel your pain. Please keep up the good work.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. I really appreciate it :)
