Dollar Tree Haul

Soooo in an effort to try to stick to my June Make-Up Budget of only $50, I went to the Dollar Tree to see what they had. I found some fun stuff in there this time. I picked up quite a few things.

I found the only 3 color palettes by L.A. Colors and of course had to purchase them – I’m not very good at doing looks with colors other than neutrals (gee wonder where my comfort zone is ?!?!?!), but I will give them a go as soon as I have some free time (yanno working 60 hours a week is not helping with my blogging habit!!!). Here are the three that I got:

Shooting Star

Southern Belle

Tiki Punch

I also noticed some ELF products and picked those up too. They had the 2 in 1 Lip Conditioning Glosses and an all over color stick. I’ve wanted to try the lip conditioners and for only $1, why not?!?!?! Once I swatched them I can tell you they leave a thick gel on your lips. I did not like the tecture, way to thick for me. It was also really hard to get the actually color out, which is probably why it's hard to tell the difference in the colors. I personally won't be purchasing again.

Here are the photos of the products on my lips...




Then I seen they had the all over stick and I was all over it! I’ve wanted to try these for a while, but Target is always out so WooHoo!!!
Pink Lemonade on Left, Golden Peach on Right

The last few things I got simply because I was intrigued by them. I just wanted to see what the pay off would be, if nothing I only spent $1 if I did like it, well BONUS!!!

I seen the NYC Limited Edition Lip Plumper in “Sun Goddess”. I put this on to swatch it, and moments later my lips started tingling, and not in a good way. The product was too sticky and once i felt the tingle I decided it wasn't for me.

I got L.A. Colors Liquid Eye Liner in “Black”

And lastly I got the Sally Hansen’s Fast Fix Concealer in “Medium” and "All Over Neutralizer"

I’ll be doing reviews on most of these products shortly. Let me know if you have any questions!!!

Have a fabulous day!!!

I guess this is just a Canadian thing but you can't get ANY makeup at our Dollaramas, let alone decent makeup. Unless you want to but the stuff that 4 year old girls wear. Jealous. Looking forward to the review!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now following yours, I love to find new blogs to follow :)

Great buys, I love the colours of the eyeshadow palettes and what a bargain. I picked up the NYC Lip Plumper but haven't used it yet.

Love Jo xxx

@ MeMe - I have 5 that are near me - each one seems to have different stuff, kinda fun going in and finding new stuff at each one.

@ Meredith - I honestly didn't know they carried this stuff until a month ago. I always thought it was just kid make up there too, but I was wrong.

@ Mrs. Makeup - let me know what you find at yours I always love seeing what others can find. Not all the stores carry the same stuff.

@ Jo - WELCOME!!!!! Let me know what you think of the plumper and also let me know what you fnd at your store.
