Haul: Dollar Tree

Yesterday my sister told me that Dollar Tree had some really nice L.A. Color eyeshadow palettes and so of course I got excited. I have bought all my L.A. Color makeup from Dollar Tree and I'm really liking it so far.

First thing this morning, literally, I went to Dollar Tree. My sweets had to be at work at 8:00 so I dropped him off and went across the street to Dollar Tree. I was there before it even opened. Stalker!!

So I went in with my daughters and bribed them with some honey buns so I could browse in peace. But I was so disappointed. No L.A. Colors. Not even E.L.F. like she told me they had except one or two things. They were out of a lot of stuff. The shelves were pretty bare and what they had left was all damaged. Ugh.

But of course, you know me, I had to buy something.

This is what I got:

I have never tried any of these products before.

Actually, the only product that I have tried would be the E.L.F. All Over Color Stick but in another color (Pink Lemonade). I do like the E.L.F. All Over Colors Sticks very much and this color looks really pretty.

The L.A. Colors Liquid Makeup and Pressed Powder I bought just to try. I could always use a pressed powder to carry in my purse just to help fight shine when needed. As for the liquid foundation, I don't have one that I'm loving at the moment so I decided to give it a whirl. I don't know why but I liked the pump dispensing on it. Different to me.

I needed nail files so bad so I just grabbed these. I know that glass nail files are recommended over these cheapie ones but this will do for now. I hate having those little nicks on my nails that cling to everything!! But I fully intend on getting a glass nail file soon.

And the duo nail polishes, how could I resist? Two for a dollar! Good deal. I'm not too crazy about the dark blue teal one because I have other colors along those lines. But I did like the shimmery nude one. It looks sheer but I'm sure it will work for summertime.

OK, my Pretties, that's all for now. I should be back later for some swatches. My Saturdays tend to be busy having both my girls at home with me...all...day...long... LOL.

Oh yes, and don't forget, today is Subbie Saturday too. That post will be up later as well.

Until then, enjoy your Saturday. Be safe and happy!

Luv & Luk,

  2. LOL, I know what you mean. The sad thing is, I am in the "richer" part of my city. LOL. Well I did try another Dollar Tree and I found 4 E.L.F. eyeshadows that I will post up later today or maybe tomorrow. So, I can relax now. I found what I wanted at the end of the day :)

  4. Hey, Gaby! That's for visiting my blog :) To be honest, my Dollar Tree usually has really great goodies. This time, not so much. It truly was a disappointing trip. Good thing is I have to Dollar Trees within 5 minutes from where I live so that's nice :)
