Calvin Klein Tempting Glimmer….in POUNDLAND?!

September 18, 2013


I love a bargain, and more and more often I seem to be finding cosmetics of high RRP in Poundland of all places! In the past few months I’ve found Sally Hanson, Revlon, Rimmel and Max Factor items all for only a pound, but this I think is the steal of the century!


The original price for these was around £15.50 each, so that’s £75-ish of make-up for a fiver!

I picked up (L-R) Vinyl black, Retro silver, Vintage metal, Bare silk and Gold velvet.

CK swatches

They all have the same creamy consistency, and give a sheer wash of colour, except for Vintage metal which is full of coppery metallic pigment and swatches very heavily. You can build the colour up, but I’ve found that they crease very easily is you apply too much product so would advise adding a primer underneath if you want to build a more solid look.

Not something I would pay the full whack for as I do tend to prefer good old fashioned powder or pressed eye-shadows, but for a bit of fun and something different it’s really worth keeping an eye out to see if you can get these for a bargain price!

Take a look in your local Poundland and see which colours you can pick up! If you have no luck, some shades are available at Fragrance Direct for £1.99!

Totally hellbent for designer labels at Poundland prices!
