So you probably all saw in the press a while back that Poundland had brought out its own range of make up products – MakeUp Gallery, and it received some great reviews.
I decided to give it a try in the form of the All About the Pout Colour Moisture Lipstick a while ago and I am pleased to say I am quite impressed.
I have four of the Lipsticks now.
From Left to Right: 01 Perfectly, Nude 07 Rose Pink, 08 Bubblegum Pink, 12 Pink Berry
These lipsticks cost £1 each and I have to say at that price they are definitely worth using. They are extremely moisturising and leave your lips feeling great. The pigment is fine for day to day wear. They last quite a long time, but I recommend using Lipcote after blotting to make them last even longer, especially with the more light, neutral shades.The Pink Berry shade did bleed after prolonged wear, so as long as you use a lip pencil you should be ok.
Next up is the Shine On Intense Colour and Shine Lipgloss and I’m sad to say I was not as impressed by these as I was with the lipstick.
From Left to Right 03 Pixie Pink, 01 Ballet Pink
Although I loved the colours, I just didn’t like the consistency and feel of these glosses on my lips. Its really thick and feels heavy on the lips. With gloss I like a subtle shine, just enough for a sexy shimmer, but this I just felt like it was clumped onto my lips and it did not feel comfortable at all, my lips were sticking together when I opened them. They are after all only £1, but I found I had to loosen it with a thinner gloss to be bearable.
Overall I totally recommend the Lipstick, but not the gloss. Im looking forward to collecting more colours and experimenting with my look 🙂
Have you tried any products from the Make Up Gallery range? If so, what did you think?
