So yesterday I uploaded a blog, looking at the Dainty Doll products I purchased from Pound Land. (If you haven’t read it, please go over and have a look-see!)
Anyway, I also purchased some other bits and bobs, as I find it physically impossible to not spend a small fortune every time I go in!
As well as the big bags of sweets and Weight Watchers crisps (oh, the irony), I also picked up a few other extras, which I’ll share with you now!
So first up are 2 Milani Bronzers.
Milani is a US based company, and these bronzers retail at $9.99 (which works out at roughly £6.44)
So, imagine how happy I was so scoop 2 bronzers up for £2!
The bronzers are accompanied by another shade, here pink and orange, which helps to create a more sun kissed look.
The only thing I didn’t like about these products was the lack of pigmentation. I expected a higher colour pay off, and although there is colour there, it’s a fine line between beach bronzed and burnt lobster. It’s very tricky to apply just the right amount.
Other than that, these are amazing products, a decent size and fabulously priced. They are worth getting if you have the time to apply the perfect amount for your skin tone.
Moving onto the next products I was thrilled to see…O.P.I!
Now, I have bitten my nails since I have had teeth. I have always had stubs, never nails. And sometimes (disgusting I know) I would bite them low enough to make my fingers bleed.
But then, being pregnant helped my nails grow, and I have really loved them.
Once I had Luke, I embarrassingly went back to nail biting again, until Steve made me promise not to bite them again.
So I haven’t.
That was 6 weeks ago…ish…and I haven’t missed biting them. It’s always a hard habit to break.
Totally off point here…
So, I found O.P.I in Pound Land, and I was instantly hooked. The 2 polishes I have are both shatter polishes, so I need to find a complimenting colour to go with them. (Envisioning another shopping trip here!)
I have done some research, and again, O.P.I is a US based company. Their shatter polishes retail for around £11. Great spot by me there! I purchased Black Shatter and Super Bass Shatter (which is from the Nikki Minaj line)
I cannot wait to try these – I was very happy to find that the UK sell Sinful Colors, so now I can purchase O.P.I too, the sky is the limit!!
Although, I must remember I only have 10 nails, so I don’t need a million nail varnishes…I am of coarse kidding, I blatantly do!
Next on my list of amazing finds is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails nail varnish and the Sue Moxley Famous Movie star Mascara.
The Sally Hansen nail collection has always been one that has enticed me, but I have heard so many mixed reviews. A couple of people I know swear it is an amazing company, whereas others tell me to stay away.
Whilst staying with my parents a few weeks ago, I decided to pop into Pound Land to get a nail varnish. I wasn’t looking for any in particular. Just a light, neutral shade that would look ok on short, but growing, nails.
So I found Sally Hansen. I thought it was a lovely light shade, and the colour looked great, considering it is grey. It is called ‘Wet Cement’…yup, a huge turn off. But the colour held and didn’t chip like I thought it would. It smudged slightly, but I’m out of practice at applying nail polish…having never had nails to practice on in the first place!
The Sue Moxley mascara was more an impulse buy, I fell in love with the packaging! It’s so slick. I cannot yet give my opinion on the product itself, as I am yet to try it. But if it lives up to its reputation, I should be impressed.
I purchased it in brown too, to make it easier to create more natural looks.
Lastly, hair care and make up wipes…have you ever known anyone to buy 6 packs of makeup wipes at one time? Well, honey, you do now!!
I am an impulse buyer…I will never go into a shop and buy 1 item. It has to be 4 or 10…never just 1. But Pound Land always has an amazing offer, where you can get 2 packets of makeup remover wipes for £1. Who can pass up that deal!?
The hair care stuff is mainly as a backup, in case in some freak accident, I lose all 14 bottles of shampoo I have in my bathroom. Should this happen, I’m set!
I haven’t tried the shampoo and conditioner yet, but fingers crossed I am impressed, as I usually am quite happy with Pantene.
The other things are deodorant, so I don’t smell, and the Clearasil Overnight Serum, which makes the yucky spots go away – but Ill upload a review blog on that product another time!
What did you buy the last time you went shopping? I’d love to know!
See you next time,
