Poundland Bargain Hunt

I've a lot of love for Poundland, this is no secret. Today I have two awesome bargains for your to feast your eyes upon. The first is this Beauty Benefits oil free foundation. My mum was actually harping on about this discovery for a few weeks but I couldn't find it myself, until the other day when they must have taken delivery of a fresh batch of make up stock. This is the lightest shade they had out and there were about 3 colour variations to choose from.
 As you know I'm a bit of a spotty too hotty lately so I've been trying to adapt my make up routine accordingly. Although I am not using this as a foundation it is perfect as a concealer!
 The sponge in it is pretty useless. I've been using my Benefit Oxygen Wow foundation as a base, concealing with this using a brush and then finishing with Collection 2000 Perfecting Minerals. It's a really great combo! And doesn't look caked up or heavy at all.
Because it's for acne prone skin it also seems to be making my spots clear up a bit faster too without drying my skin out. Awesome product for a mere £1!! Secondly I spotted this Collection 2000 Shimmer and Shade Blusher. I think there's going to be quite a bit of Collection 2000 stuff in the Pound Shops soon as they have rebranded their entire range to just being called 'Collection' I don't understand why. It just doesn't feel right referring to them as Collection! 
 I've seen some really good reviews of this about! So I was quite pleased that I waited and didn't pay the £4.99 retail price for it. I know this design is more of the limited edition one they had out a few months ago but it's still a lovely colour and I much prefer this design to the square one on the shelves at the moment, although it is missing the nice pinky shade.
 It's perfect for the summer as it has a slightly bronze hue about it and it's not too shimmery at all. It gives your complexion a really nice dewy look. It's easy enough to get the darker shade onto a brush to use as a blusher and then get a larger brush to dust the powder all around your face.
What do you think? Certainly can't go wrong for a pound each! And both of these products have quickly become every day essentials. I love a good bargain I do!
