I tested a full face of Poundland make-up… it only cost £12 – here are the products to buy and the ones to swerve | The Sun

POUNDLAND is the go-to for many bargain hunters – but what about their make-up?

Well, one beauty lover, Helin Doski, tried out a bunch of their make-up products, and it's safe to say it was very hit and miss – with some items to best not waste your money on.

The whizz took to TikTok to test a full face of beauty products by Poundland, the total of which came to just £12.

At the start of the viral video, which has been viewed more than 2.2 million times in just two days, Helin first applied the Matte Me Over foundation.

But although the packaging of the £1 product claimed it would give a lightweight, matte finish, the guru quickly came to discover that this was not true.

''I can feel it so heavily on my face,'' she said, after noting that the shade range was ''not good''.

But apart from that, Helin seemed to be pretty impressed, before moving onto contour.

As the brand doesn't carry any contour products, the savvy make-up lover decided to use a darker tone concealer – and again, she pointed out there were not enough shades for darker skin tones.

Despite the initial scepticism, Helin liked how the Hide & Chic liquid concealer looked on her skin.

However, the tutorial took a very sharp turn when she put a lighter shade concealer to test and experienced a burning sensation under her eyes.

Once the skin had calmed down a bit, she proceeded to try Smoothly Does It pressed powder, which was also a winner.

''Sorry, but what is going on here? Why is everything looking good?''

To finish the base, Helin had also grabbed a powder blush – but with too much shimmer, the Feeling Blush duo blusher was not amongst her favourites.

''I mean, it could be worse, but the shimmer is just disgusting.''

Moving onto a colourful eye make-up look, Helin had purchased a mini palette of four shades, including more neutral tones and a bright purple eyeshadow.

The All About the Eyeshadow was the only palette ''that looked remotely exciting'', the beauty lover noted.

''There's literally next to no pigment, the shimmer is kind of cute.''

To finish off the eye make-up, Helin also put their Gallery Pro liquid eyeliner and Turn Up the Volume mascara, the latter of which was a major fail.

''A big no from me, felt like I had to put ten coats of it on and it's done basically nothing.

''They had one lip liner and it's orange,'' she said.

To not look as ''crazy'', Helin tried to save the situation with the All About the Pout lipstick in nude – but a few swipes in and it fell apart.

The last item on the list was Plump Up the Volume lip gloss in Pink Dust, however, just like the shimmery blush, this too was ''ugly''.

''The base looks good. The eyes and lips – they're not really giving.''
