Poundshop Beauty Haul

Here is a quick haul of what I've recently purchased beauty wise from my local pound shops. 

I never really thought of finding beauty products in poundshops, until I saw a few videos on youtube and thought I would have a look in mine. I actually found some great bargains.

I found these 3 Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers in my local Poundstretchers. The price of these currently on boots website is £6.49, so what a bargain getting these for £1. I can't find any names on these, but I would describe the shades as; hot pink, nude pink, and a deep red colour. After I found these, I did some research and apparently, the only thing different to these Apocalips is that they have changed the packaging. Definitely a bargain in my eyes.

Next, I bought this Baby Lips lip balm from my local Poundworld. I think this is the Japanese version, I think, not sure so don't take my word for that. Baby Lips is the UK retail in Boots at £2.99. So not a huge saving, but for £1 who can complain. I don't think this lip balm has a scent, but I absolutely love the packaging of this. Coral/Peach and Mint are my favourite combination.

Next, I found this Tresemme Split End Repair Serum in my local Poundworld. This retails in Boots for £5.75. The only thing that is different from this one and the one on boots website, is that the one in Boots is called Tresemme Split Remedy instead of Split End Repair. For a £4.75 saving, I defiantly don't care that its called something different, its exactly the same product.

The last thing I got, was this LipSilk Strawberry Lip Balm from Poundworld. This is meant to be a dupe for the EOS lip balms. I actually don't like this product, I find it really drying so wouldn't recommend this. However I have never tried any EOS lip balms so don't know if its a dupe.

If you have ever tried any beauty products from poundshops, please leave a comment below.

OOTD: Day out with Family

I thought I would show you what I recently wore, when I went out for the day with my family.
This is a really casual outfit, and something I wear all the time. 

Jacket: New Look
Top: New Look
Jeans: George at Asda
Bag: Primark
Shoes: Primark (I know you can't see my shoes, they are just plain black ballet flats)

Here's me laying on the grass, while the kids run and play hide and seek. 

This is my little brother and my cousin. 

Brother and Cousin again, just thought they looked cute.

Here's us all!
(L-R) My cousin Abby, me, my cousin Lucy, my cousin Ashleigh and my sister Amy. Then behind, there is my brother Hayden and cousin Katie.

I basically did this post, because I took loads of beautiful photos of the scenery and I wanted to post them somewhere. I don't think the people on instagram would of appreciated about 10 pictures, of the same park.

The river and little ducks coming to be fed. 

I just love how quiet and calm everything looks. 

The walkway to the bridge.

A random tree.

The view when I was laying on the floor. 

White Roses in the flower garden.

And finally, the Flower Garden.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these photos. I really love making posts like these because they're my family life and I can look back in the future and see them. 
Thanks for Reading!

Review and Swatches: MUA Power Pout ~ Full Collection

I bought these Power Pouts in my MUA Part 2 Haul. They are currently on the MUA Website for £3 each, but when I bought them they were on sale for £1 each. These are a cheaper alternative to the Clinique Chubby Sticks I believe. There are a total of six shades, and they range from nudes to plum reds.

L-R Rendezvous, Justify, Runaway, Broken Hearted, Irreplaceable, Crazy in Love
These are named as a 'colour intense tint and balm' by MUA, I would definitely say they have the texture of a lip balm. They are smooth and creamy like a lip balm.  

L-R Rendezvous, Justify, Runaway, Broken Hearted, Irreplaceable, Crazy in Love
They have an appearance of having a glossy finish, but they aren't sticky like a gloss. They are really easy to apply as they are in a crayon form. You can also wind up the bottom of the stick, when you need more product. I really like that the packaging is the colour of the actual product, I love the fact that its all one colour.

without the flash
Rendezvous is a nude. 
Justify is more of a orange/coral colour. 
Runaway is a deeper orange with a red/pink undertone.
Broken Hearted is a darker pink.
Irreplaceable is the pinkest of shades, even though its packaging is purple/pink.
Finally, Crazy in love is a deep plum colour, with a red undertone.

with the flash
I think my favourites are Broken Hearted and Justify.
I would really recommend these Power Pouts as for the price they are a bargain.  If you would like me to do any lip swatches of any of these, please leave me a comment or message me on any of my social medias. Please tell me in the comments which your favourite shades are, and if you would purchase or have these Power Pouts.
