Poundworld Haul Ft NYC - Bargain Beauty

Who doesn't love beauty bargains! Following on from my last budget haul here, I am back with some more products that I got from Poundworld.

I've never been to Poundworld before so when I saw the store I literally jumped in, and it didn't disappoint!

I've seen a few people finding the NYC applelicious glossy lip balms so they were the main things I was looking for. Fortunately I managed to find two in the shades 354 Apple Blossom and 358 Garnet Gala. They're tinted balms with an apple scent.
From L to R: 354 Apple Blossom, 358 Garnet Gala

Apple Blossom is more of a raspberry shade, it gives a slight tint to the lips and has quite a sheen like a lipgloss. It looks very natural, and is a sort of your lips but better colour. Garnet Gala is almost like a brick red, on my lips it comes across as a bronzey red with slight coral undertones. It's quite the opposite to Apple Blossom, it has a lot of shimmer in it and would be for those times when you want a bit more colour.


The formula for both of them is very smooth and even, they don't stick to dry patches at all. They are really moisturising so they would be perfect for the upcoming season. Like lip balms they don't last very long, but they're great for topping up when your lips feel a bit dry. I can definitely see myself getting a lot of use out of Apple Blossom.


The eyeliner is the NYC high definition liquid eyeliner in 001 Dancing Diva. It's a soft brown that is great for a neutral look. The nib is very pointed and precise so it's quite easy to apply, it has a felt tip applicator. It didn't last for the whole day like my NYC liquid eyeliner in black (a Poundland buy) but it lasted around about 6 hours. It also didn't smudge or transfer as it wore off.

Finally I got the NYC high definition seperating mascara in 849 Extreme Black. It has a plastic wand and the bristles are quite small, it reminded me of the Loreal telescopic mascara. It would be great for getting into those small lashes, and for the price I think it'd make a good everyday mascara for some definition.



I actually got this eyeshadow from Poundland a few weeks ago, I saw some other shades too but none of them caught my eye like 037 Metallic Lilac. I love the Loreal colour infallible eyeshadows, they're pressed pigments that have great colour pay off. This particular shade is a lilac with slightly grey undertones. It gives a wonderful metallic like sheen without being shimmery. It's a great addition to my infallible collection.

I got this Revlon creme gloss for 50p from Savers, it appears to have been discountinued like the NYC liner and mascara. The packaging is sturdy and high quality, very similar to their lipsticks. To put it on you need to turn the dial at the bottom and the product appears on the brush applicator. You do tend to get a lot of product as it's hard to tell how much to tun it by.

The shade I got is 065 Crush on Coral. The formula is very sticky and it doesn't apply so evenly. It's also not very opaque, more like a tinted gloss. It's much too shimmery for my liking, however the colour alone can be quite a flattering coral if you go for a light layer.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the products I picked up, even if one of two of them turned out to be duds.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
