#Beauty | Covershoot Cosmetics, Something to CoverSHOUT about*

It's no secret that I love a bargain. They get me all giddy and weak at the kneesI'm like a more female, less orange version of David Dickinson; every day for me is like an episode of Bargain Hunt

On that note [whilst you have that lovely mental image of me in a Bargain Hunt fleece, pure buzzing at a Car Boot Sale] let me introduce you to the latest budget beauty range I've been trying out recently - they're definitely one to [cover]SHOUT about ... they're Covershoot Cosmetics and they're about to blow your mind.




Covershoot Cosmetics are a new, UK based cosmetics brand, who offer quality cosmetics at affordable prices. I'm not even messing about the affordability of their products - you can pick them up at Savers, on Amazon and in the case of the AMAZING Nail Twist Pot [which you can feast your eyes on shortly] - the one and only POUNDLAND. My happy place. I legit can't cope with that news. Every single piece you see in this post retails for under £4. 

Covershoot use professional formulas, giving their products a great finish - and they don't test on animals, either. I can't pick a fault with any of that, can you!? They very kindly sent me a few of the most popular products from their range to try out - and I can't wait to share them with you. Cos not only is Poundland [my fav] involved, they're also really bloody good.



I had to kick off this post with this bad boy - the Nail Polish Remover Twist Pot.* I frigging love it. It's a total game changer and I was not expecting it to be as effective as it actually is - especially given that you can pick this up at Poundland! For nail polish remover, this actually smells really good too - almost fruity rather than that fumey smell this stuff normally has [you know what I'm talking about... that, erm, acetone aroma that hits you right in the back of your throat and makes your eyes stream.] It does exactly what it says on the tin [well, tub in this case.]






Simply pop the lid off, put your finger inside the pot, twist it a little and POW, your nail polish is 100% gone. Just like that. As a lazy blogger, I would pretty much marry this product, if I could [it's that boss.] It honestly takes so much of the hassle out of painting your nails and removing all traces of old chipped polishes. LOVE.



Next up we have these two gorgeous little palettes; the Neon Eyeshadow Palette* and the Smokey Eyes Eyeshadow Palette.* They're cute, dinky and have on-point, minimal packaging.




I got on really well with both these palettes and was really impressed with them - especially with the Smokey Eyes Palette. This palette in particular has some fab staple shades which have really, really great pigmentation - and swatch really nicely. The eyeshadows feel soft and luxurious and will blend a dream. I can't wait to create some smouldering festive looks with it.





The consistency of the eyeshadows in the Neon Palette is a little different; meaning that the colours will need to be built up more to look as effective - but due to how bright and daring the shades in this palette are, I actually think that this works in its favour! I personally wouldn't want to go in too strong all at once with these colours, so I think this quality will make them easier to blend and build up some truly fab transitions with; rather than dive straight in and regret my actions!





If you follow my blog or my mad ramblings on Twitter, you'll know that I've been making more of an effort with my eyebrows lately. I am therefore super excited to try out this Eyebrow Kit*, as I've mainly been using pencils and powders to fill in my brows, and this looks like it will slot into my routine nicely.



The brow powders are soft and feel luxurious to the touch. Although the very dark shade in this palette won't be much use to me, I'm really looking forward to trying out the mid and lighter brown tones and the brow primer; which is a cream consistency. 



The packaging recommends that you apply this primer to your brows first, to hold the colour in place - which is something I never even considered in previous eyebrow care regimes! Can't wait to see if it makes a noticeable difference, yeno.




And last but not least, let's finish up on the trend that never quits [contouring, obv] with the Covershoot Cosmetics Contouring Palette.* I've heard really great things about this palette from other bloggers, so I'm super excited to post about this once I've used it properly; to achieve my contouring goals. 



The palette has three pans; one to bronze, one to contour and one to highlight - so it literally covers all the latest beauty trends in one handy case. Contour, non-tour or strobe - whatever floats your boat. Each pan is a cream, which is great; as cream contouring [for beginners and novices like myself] is much easier than contouring with powder. It also has handy tips on how to apply each product on the inner of the case, which is a nice touch.


My first impressions of this palette are really positive - each product feels like it will blend into the skin nicely and doesn't leave you feeling pure muddy [like some of the knock-offs I've tried from China do - oh and the horror that was the NYX Wonderstick *shudders*] I have very high hopes for this palette. Very high indeed.

There we have it - a rundown of some truly fab products from Covershoot Cosmetics. I'm really impressed with the quality, packaging and expansive range they offer - not to mention their affordability! Who knew you could get makeup this good in Poundland and Savers, hey?!


Have you tried any of Covershoot's products before, or noticed them when you've been picking up bargains in the holy land which is Poundland? What do you like the look of most from the range?
