Has anyone noticed that more and more fashion stores are sticking little bits and bobs near the til area to tempt us? Top Shop, Forever 21, H&M etc all seem to do it. I guess it makes sense, a bit like having the gum and chocolates by the till at the supermarket!
I rarely shop in H&M – I just don’t find the quality very good, but they do some good little sales and homeware items. When I was last in there I was tempted to pick a few bit of these little temptations for the grand sum of £3.
I picked up a glittery nail polish, a glittery pink lip gloss – just because I love the lid, and a clear mini make up bag as I though I could transfer some of my antibacterial baby wipes into it to carry around (those packs are too thick to carry around in my handbag usually!).
After I got home with these, I kinda thought…why?! Yes it’s cheap and cheerful, but is it any use? Doesn’t it just clutter up the place?
The nail polish is quite nice – the packaging is fine, and the glitter is very fine and actually, it lasted well on my nails.
The lip gloss is very generic, nothing special but nice for a teen who is starting to wear make up.
The little bag is very flimsy – it’s ok for wipes though as it seems to keep the air out (thus not drying out the wipe) but it creases easily – it’s one of those plastic bags that has tons of little folds in it every time it’s crumpled!
I guess this kind of stuff is just a little perk-me-up especially when shopping on a budget. Primark is the worst as there are so many little temptations on the way to paying!
Do you ever randomly add on purchases on your way to the tills?
