Wilko’s make-up and toiletry bargains & their Real Technique dupes.

Wilko’s seem to be revamping their toiletry section at the moment meaning they are selling off old stock at a reduced price. I didn’t go too mad buying things I don’t need but I did pick up a Sweet vanilla and honey foam bath  and  a Fruity berry foam bath for 50p each. These both smell amazing and I can’t wait to try them in a bath finishing off my latest book. 

Their Montagne Jeunesse face masks were reduced to just 10p each so I bought four of these. I don’t think I have ever used one or if I have it was when I was about ten! I’m looking forward particularly to using the peel-off cucumber mask – it reminds me of peeling PVA glue off your hands in primary school! ;)

Now what I originally went in for was some Essence make-up. Unlike a certain other brand which was been littering everyone’s blogs with exposure and therefore I refuse to buy it, this brand’s presence has turned me the other way and I couldn’t wait to try some of it. I was really quite shocked at how many mascaras they sell, I reckon there must have been about twenty there which is just ridiculous!

I got I love extreme crazy volume mascara £2.80 which I *think* is the one I had read some reviews on and The last curler’ volume and curl mascara £3.30 which has some weird twirling lid to curl your lashes. I needed an eyeshadow base so I picked one up to try at £2.50, though upon opening it at home it appears to be coloured and does not blend in so I shall have to be careful with application. My last Essence purchase was a Long-lasting eye pencil in dark brown for £1.50.  It looks very much like an Avon glimmerstick.

All make-up is on 3 for 2 and because the other two stands they have are Rimmel and Collection (2000) I could have left spending a lot more but I resisted. I’m sure everyone shops in Wilko’s so if you are in the area then I recommend popping in sooner rather than later to see if you can pick up any bargains.

The second part of this post is a little surprising to me. Now as I said Wilko’s are revamping this section but I really didn’t expect to walk in today and see them selling Real Technique dupe make-up brushes. I say dupe, but having not tried them, I am simply referring to their style. I wanted to take a picture but the lady was stocking the shelves nearby so I didn’t want to get any weird looks. I’ve looked on their website but they don’t look quite the same as in-store behind their fancy perpex display. You can take a look here: Wilko's brushes I wonder what they are like, has anyone tried them yet?

So there is my Sunday love for Wilko’s . . not your typical shop to blog about I’m sure but I love to post a bargain and they are full of them.  If anyone has any Essence recommendations or has tried the brushes let me know!

    1. There really is. For example their cotton wool pads, the square ones, are 50p compared to £1 elsewhere. Don't know what the quality is like mind! Amy x

  2. I drive past a Wilkos every day and never go in! New range, you say? Might need to pay a cheeky visit!
