I'm Scrapping the Schedule....

I think I'm going to scrap the schedule for this blog... partly because it's harder for me to keep up with it now that I'm back at school, and I need to use more of my time to do my homework and such. I'll still do reviews and stuff but without the schedule because I feel it's putting extra pressure on me (wow that sounded dramatic xD).

I'm going to keep the "My Friday Favourite" posts because I really enjoy doing those, and also because it lets people know a bit more about me. =)

Poundland Make Up Review - Saturday's Hot or Not

*I mentioned Poundland's make up range in a previous post, but I hadn't tried any of their products; click here to read the post.*

Okay, so here's my (long overdue) review of Poundland's makeup range, "Chit Chat". =)

Today I visited my local Poundland, and I decided to pick up a few things from their make up range because I'd read about it online, and it looked pretty good. Sadly, my local Poundland didn't have the full range, but the stuff they did have wasn't really what I expected. =(

I only bought one of their 4-colour eyeshadow palettes.

I bought the one which is furthest to the right. I was hoping to get my hands on the one at the very left, but they didn't have it =( They had one in green, but I'm not a big fan of dark green eyeshadow, so I didn't get that one.

Here's a swatch of the colours:

Sorry about the quality of the picture, I used my phone to take it and it's not very good, but the colours are true to what you get from this palette.

#1 is the white one, and it has a box around it because it was so pale that it just didn't so up at all when I swatched it on my arm... same as when you put it on your eyelid... =(

#2 is very pretty, and my favourite from the palette: it's a greyish-blue, but it's also quite pale.

#3 is like a chocolate brown with a hint of purple though it - also quite pretty.

#4 is meant to be black, but looks more a dark grey than anything else.

For numbers 2,3 & 4 - the colours might be better if you put on a few more coats, but overall, the eyeshadows aren't very pigmented at all.

The other interesting thing I found from the Chit Chat range was the "Pump It! Lip Gloss" which I discovered was available in only one colour. It too, wasn't very pigmented.

I saw their foundations, powders and bronzers as well, but I'm not too sure about the quality, so I'd didn't get any of those.... I also found that the foundations only came in "Light", "Medium" and "Dark" and none of them matched my skin tone. =(

Sorry Poundland, but I'm not a big fan of your make up range.

Value for money: ★ (you're only paying a pound... but still)

Dolce & Gabbana Perfume - My Friday Favourite

I've not blogged in about a week! I need to write about something... time for my Friday Favourite ;)

I'm currently loving the smell of D&G eau de toilette - especially this set:

Even though they all smell quite similar, my favourite is number 18: La Lune - I'm in love with this scent! <3

I wear it most days, and the scent keeps all day long - it smells as fresh in the evening as it did when I put it on in the morning - perfect! I get a lot of compliments on it and my friends seem to really like it. =D
