Calvin Klein For A Pound!

Today I went to Newark to get my hair cut before I go off to University – so it’s one less thing I need to worry about once I’m there. Obviously I couldn’t resist popping into a few shops after, since there are more stores and wider ranges than they do in my home town. So I went into Poundland, admittedly because I just wanted some caramel freddos (heaven!) and I found these…

CALVIN KLEIN beauty products being sold in Poundland! I didn’t even read what it the exact product was at first, as I scooped them up and swiftly paid for them.



On closer inspection later, I read that they were ‘Tempting Glimmer Sheer Crème Eyeshadow’, in the colour cashmere plum and retro silver.



The eyeshadow actually reminds me of ‘Maybelline Color Tattoo’, with the creamy, gel like consistency.

Ignore the scar, I only realised it was in the photo when I was writing this post!

When applying the swatch, the cashmere plum doesn’t appear to be cakey, and for just a pound I think it is brilliant, so I’m hoping I can find the other colours on my next visit. The retro silver however, I was disappointed by. When doing the swatch I found the product watery and so hardly shows up and looks bad on my hand, let alone what it would have looked like on my eyes. I don’t know if it was just the one I picked out that was like this, or if this is what all the silver ones are like from Calvin Klein. I’d love to hear if you have purchased these ones, and your opinions.

Do you think everything you buy from Poundland is always of good quality? I frequently see the nail polishes in the store looking as if they have been sat on the shelf for years, as often the liquid inside appears to have separated, which surely can’t be good! Does this mean you are applying nail polish and other makeup onto your body and face when it could actually be out of date?

What do you think? And what bargains have you found lately?
