I mentioned Miss Beauty London makeup in my recent post about Where To Buy Cheap Makeup. It’s available exclusively from Poundworld and is only £1 per item (obvs, it’s from Poundworld). So before you run to Poundworld with your coins, I have a selection of the Miss Beauty London range to tell you about and swatches so you can grab yourself the pick of the bunch.
Miss Beauty London Review- Perfect Base Face Primer
- £1 for 25mls
- “Wear under foundation as the perfect base for a smooth natural complexion”
- Ingredients- silicone, glycerin, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E.
I haven’t found a primer that does jack all for me. I’ve tried all the expensive ones and they all give the same effect- a smooth base for foundation but no significant improvement in lasting power. I’d say Miss Beauty London’s face primer is as good as any of the fancy ones. It’s moisturising and bland, the ingredients don’t pose any threat to skin. It’s best suited to normal/dry skin as it contains moisturising ingredients and isn’t mattifying. I’m happy to call this a worthwhile bargain 8/10👍
Miss Beauty London Review- Flawless Matte Foundation
- £1 for 25mls
- “An easy wear, lightweight foundation with Vitamin E to give a natural blemish free complexion”
You would expect a £1 foundation to be absolutely horrible. Flawless Matte by Miss Beauty isn’t horrible at all. Like the primer it comes in a squeeze tube, no issues there. The finish is nearly matte, The coverage is excellent. It applies nicely and blends well. The only issue I have is that it oxidises terribly on me. Oxidative is when foundation reacts to the oils in skin and darkens. I have shade 02 (I need to find out what the rest of the shade range is like, if there’s a lighter one, I’m getting it). Here’s the swatch, the foundation looks much lighter than that just out of the tube-
Even though I was perfectly happy with the base that Flawless Matte gave, after a short period of time it had darkened and looked a little orange. It’s not so bad that anyone noticed (I always ask husband as he is rather good at constructive criticism). At only £1 it might be worth trying, it may well not oxidise on everyone’s skin. Miss Beauty London foundation is surprisingly good but has one fatal flaw 6/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Pressed Powder
- “A smooth fine pressed powder in a silk finish, blended with Vitamin E for ultimate shine control”
I’m not going to put the price, you get it, they’re all a pound. I got shade 4 Autumn Beige. The shade is fair and not exactly what I’d describe as Autumn Beige. This is a perfectly good pressed powder, it mattifies for a certain length of time and as with all pressed powder you need a light hand when applying. The packaging doesn’t spring open unannounced in your bag. All hunky dory, I have no complaints. Miss Beauty London pressed powder is a solid bet 7/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Lengthening Mascara
The lengthening mascara could well be my favourite product by Miss Beauty London. It has tri-ball brush (this may well not be it’s official title). The ball-y brush is handy for catching the lashes at the edges and you can turn the brush to use the tip to catch the fine inner lashes. I agree that the formula is lengthening but it’s not massively volumising, so you need a few coats.
Lengthening mascara is clump free and it lasts really well. I had no mascara drop or smudging with it at all and I often suffer with panda eyes so I was dead impressed. Lengthening mascara is a fab daytime mascara 9/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Fine Liquid Eyeliner
Another mixed bag with Miss Beauty London liquid liner. I found it really easy to apply. It has a pointy foam nib and quite a liquid formula. It dries fairly quickly, but gives you some working time. The finish is matte and pure black. My issue is its lasting time, when it’s dried it will smudge quite easily. You might find you’re missing a wing at the end of the day. If you don’t mind doing touch ups Miss Beauty London is a good buy 7/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Blusher No4 Toffee
Toffee is a wearable shade. It’s just warmer than a bronzer and has a slight shimmer to it. It’s not overly pigmented so you can build it’s intensity. It lasts pretty well too. Here’s a close up of Toffee on-

Miss Beauty London Review- Eyeshadow No6 Storm
Storm is a gunmetal grey. There’s plenty of pigmentation and it has a nice metallic finish. It was creased into the fold of my eye by the end of the day, but what did you expect of a £1 eyeshadow. Unfortunately it disintegrated in my makeup bag. If you’re going to get one of these eyeshadows, careful handling is needed Miss Beauty London Eyeshadow in Storm 5/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Eyebrow Pencil No3 Brown
I found the eyebrow pencil in brown a little red toned for me. The pigmentation is fine, but the shade wasn’t quite right. It lasted well for several hours but because the shade is wrong, I won’t be reaching for it. Miss Beauty London Eyebrow Pencil 4/10
Miss Beauty London Review- Lipstick in Mauve
Mauve is a lovely shade, a blue toned pink/purple. It has a sheer satin finish. Like most satin lipsticks it doesn’t last a heck of a long time. It does the job as a hand bag lipstick, it’s easy to apply in a dash, feels moisturising and it’s lid stays on well. Miss Beauty London Lipstick in Mauve 8/10
Here I am with a full face of Miss Beauty London-
I think it looks fab considering all the makeup cost less than £10. Some items definitely perform as well as some drugstore brands. My picks would be the lengthening mascara, Toffee blush and the primer. I’d give the foundation a go while you’re at it, if the colour suits you it’s a bargainous bargain.
