Beauty on a Budget – Pound Picks!

If you regularly read my blog, you will no doubt know that I am obsessed with budget beauty buys, showing that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get products that leave you feeling amazing. In this addition to my Beauty on a Budget posts, I share with you my pound picks!

I thought I would set myself a little task. I took out £15, and went to three high street pound shops to see what I could get for my money and I am pretty pleased with myself!

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Fuschia Bling Bling
Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Pronto Purple
Montagne Jeunesse Face Pack x2

In total on all the products I spent £12.96! A quick scout around other stores showed that I could have paid near to £40 for all these products!!  It’s amazing what brands you can find when you have a little snoop in the pound shops. Some lines have been discontinued, but who cares, you may find something you have been missing for a few years. I have even spotted some Calvin Klein make up floating around before. I have to mention again though not all of them stock the same thing, so you may not get exactly what I have but it is definitely worth having a good old snoop!

Some of the things I bought, I have never used before so I am looking forward to trying those out and letting you know how they are.

Do you get any beauty products from the Pound shops? What are your best buys?

The Body Jewellery Shop

SAM_0987If you’re like me and you love ear piercingsthen this is definitely post for you. I was recently sent three beautiful pieces from The Body Jewellery Shop, and I have to say I am in love!

The first piece, was this silver and steel lobe/tragus bar.

3 Star Silver and Steel Lobe/ Tragus Bar* – £3.95

I love how cute this is, its so easy to put in as well. The star detail is silver and the bar and ball are surgical steel. I chose to wear it in my Helix, but it is suitable for most piercings in your ears. I like this style for the helix, because they are comfortable and if you’re leaving them in there is no butterfly holding it in irritating your neck if you lay on it.

Next up, we have something a tiny little bit different.  Two ear cuffs, which are from the non piercing jewellery range.

Beauty on a Budget 5 – Make Up Gallery Nail Polish

I have already raved about the lipstick I previously picked up at Poundland here! Now its time to talk about the nail polish and I am as equally impressed!

I love having my nails done, but I also love doing them myself. I haven’t had acrylics done since coming back from Thailand in December, as my nails were in pretty bad shape plus it can also get quite expensive, as you have to have them redone so often.

Luckily I discovered this polish and at £1 a go it won’t break the bank. I started off with just one to try and now I have built up quite a collection.

These polishes come in a fab range of colours including pastels, metallics, brights and glitters.

Beauty on a Budget – Lipstick by Make up Gallery

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.
