Hi there! When Poundland launched its own make-up collection, women all over the country rushed out to grab a bargain. And just like almost every other woman I too was interesting to find out how Poundland’s own brand make-up would fare.
I’ve now tried these MakeUp Gallery Colour Story Eyeshadows – and I don’t like them at all. I’ll tell you why in a minute, but let me tell you which shades I tried.
From top to bottom, the shades I’ve got are Nude 2, Smoke Screen 13 (matte) and Galaxy Grey 16 (shimmery).
I tried my best to do proper swatches, but the eyeshadows didn’t let me. They’re chalky, they’re not very pigmented and they’re not buildable because they’re so very chalky. Is this a vicious circle or what?!
I applied eight (!) layers of Nude, but the eyeshadow is hardly visible. I also tried to apply this shade with a bit of water and on top of a little lotion, but it hardly made a difference. I encountered the same problem with Smoke Screen and Galaxy Grey. However, I didn’t make as many attempts to present them as favourable as possible.
In all honesty, I really don’t understand why so many women seem to love Poundland’s own brand make-up. I think these eyeshadows are rubbish. I won’t buy them again and I won’t be trying any other shades. Anyway, if you’d like to try these MakeUp Gallery Colour Story Eyeshadows, they’re £1 at Poundland.
