For some time now Poundland have been selling discontinued branded make-up. We’re taking a look at some highlights currently available in Poundland stores and cross matching them with similar items available in stores for their full retail price, to show how much you can save by making small thrifty decisions, and changing your shopping habits by exploring discounted options.
In terms of Reselling, there isn’t a lot of margin in it and the eBay market is flooded. The beauty category on Amazon is gated, which means that you are only able to sell beauty products if you have a wholesale account. However, sometimes a brand appears which is worth buying for the purpose of Retail Arbitrage. In the below examples SLEEK make-up is an expensive brand. It is not readily available on the high street and can generally only be purchased online from beauty specialist stores. This would definitely be a brand which would be worth buying from Poundland with a view to reselling.
It is worth dropping in to your local Poundland from time to time to scan the shelves for products available. The popular brands such as Barry M, Max Factor and Rimmel can be skimmed over but look out for the brands that are less well known and harder to find. You may be surprised:
