Makeup For £1?♥*

I'm willing to try any makeup, drugstore or highend. I'm not a "makeup snob" or anything like that. Makeup for £1? I'm up for a trial. When Miss Beauty London* contacted me about their products, I jumped at the chance - of course I had to give it a bash to review! Unfortunately, I cannot link any products however, they are all available from Poundworld. They are manufactured in the UK.

Having oily skin, I was delighted to see their flawless matte foundation. Sending foundations can be a little risky, especially not knowing if it'll match. I was sent out shade 3, which surprisingly doesn't look all too bad. I found that the consistency was rather thick in comparison to some of my other foundations. It blends almost flawlessly with my damp beauty sponge then I blend it around my neck and hairline a bit more with a buffing brush. The powder sets my makeup into place. It's a little dark for me but used with the foundation, you don't even notice.


For liquid eyeliner, I only own pen style ones. When I saw the fine liner, I was a little nervous to try it because I've never tried a "pot style" eyeliner. It turns out it's actually really good. Perhaps the best product out of the whole box. There's no denying that it's the blackest black eyeliner you can get. Once applied, it almost sets in place and it doesn't shift one bit. I just find it a little difficult to use to wing it out but nonetheless. The mascara doesn't impress me too much. I use it in conjunction with my other mascaras - it's a good "base" mascara as it's light and does separate my lashes. It would be ideal for those natural makeup days/

For £1, what can I say? I'm blown away because I wasn't quite sure just what to expect. I do echo myself again and say that the eyeliner is my favourite - it just shows that price doesn't go for quality!

Have you ever tried Miss Beauty London? What did you think of it?

  3. Ooooh the eyeliner sounds so good, I never wear it, I'm hopeless at applying it, and I've never even attempted a wing...I might have t pick this up seen as it's cheap, and it wont go to too much waste if I keep failing at it!!

    1. Personally, some days I just like to line my lash line and not wing out my liner, and this eyeliner makes it exceptionally easy! x

    2. Wow! I can't believe these are all £1 items! I know what you mean about oily skin - im the same and it always makes me nervous when trying new make-up products (particularly budget ones!). Pot eyeliners are my favourite so I'll definitely be giving that a try though :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. That eyeliner sounds great, I hate those ones that come out grey and watery! I find that pen formulas tend to be like that, whereas the pot types are opaque and thicker but not as easy to use!

    1. This eyeliner is the blackest black! Some pens can be weaker in pigment though x

  9. I quite like those eyeliner pot styles, I think I got used to them after years of the Rimmel ones haha. Shame about the mascara though! xx

  12. For one pound you can hardly complain.
    Unfortunately don't think these products are available in Ireland.

  14. Love this post. How were these only £1? They look like good products and I think for £1 you can't go wrong at all.

    Lovely write-up and think they are a must to try out.

    Thanks

  15. Awesome blog! Nice to know that cheap makeup can still be good. We have something in the states called ShopMissA.com - You should check it out and see if you can ship to the UK! If not, MyMallBox is an option for shipping ;)

    Always,
    Char.

  16. I love cheap makeup that actually still works well! I think there definitely should be more cheaper brands in the market. And by cheap I mean under £5 cheap :Dx

  17. I've tried some nail varnish from Poundland and been impressed so I wouldn't be put off to try their make-up either and for £1 you've hardly wasted anything if it doesn't work out!!!! >.< Brilliant! Ms Budget Beauty has done a whole look using Poundland Make Up and I was surprised at how good it was!! =) In this day and age we can't afford to be picky about make up!!
    Loving it as per Jasmine....=)

    1. I've seen the nail polishes numerous times but don't know why I don't pick them up! Yeah I remember seeing her look, but at the time I wasn't too sure about this brand as I hadn't heard that much! x
