My pound shop bargains!

Hello darlings

Today i thought i'd make a little bargains post, i recently went into the Pound Shop to buy a drink and i thought i'd have a little look at their makeup, i'm a beauty blogger how could i resist? Normally i don't find much that i'd be interested in so i didn't have high hopes. But boy was i surprised my local pound shop had some decent branded makeup in good colours! I controlled myself and only bought things i'd be interested in not just because it was a pound and it was there. So picked up three items, two from Max Factor and one from L'Oreal 
First up is this pencil eyeliner from Max Factor. this is just a simple brown eyeliner, in the shade Khaki, i did need a new one as my MUA one is nearly all gone, so finding this was perfect timing. Its soft and creamy and applies nicely. But it isn't easy to blend, once its on its on! It is VERY long lasting, it took days to come off my hand (swatched below) but on the eye it does come over with Micellar water. 
Next up i bought a single eye shadow also from Max Factor in the shade '03 Metallic Brown'. This is my kind of shade, its very similar (if slightly darker) to my favourite eye shadows 'Taupe It Off' by benefit and 'Suspect' from Urban Decay. Similar to the eye liner its creamy and very pigmented. It blends lovely and it is long lasting. Next time i will see if there are any other shades in the shop!
Lastly i bought the L'Oreal nail polish in the shade 'Burgundy Diva'. I have to admit i have a hundred nail polishes like this one, deep purples and red are my go to nail colours but this was so small and cute i needed it! Its not very season appropriate but i just love this colour so much. I haven't worn it myself yet but i painted my friends Claire's nails with this and it looks stunning. 

Overall i'm really happy with my new products! 
I'd love to know have you found any bargains recently?
