Today, I wanted to talk about my yet another interesting and fun finds at my local dollar store or similar to dollar tree store. I got many requests to do another post and here I am hauling as many products from the dollar store to share my post with you guys.
This is what I picked up from the dollar store and since Easter is just in week. I was excited to be picking some Easter treats for the children. So, I got the Easter eggs, chocolates, stickers and gift bags together with color paint for my son to do his art drawings. Whereas for myself, I picked a facial mask, L.A. Colors makeup, elf eyeliner and a death sea revitalizing cream. Okay, that should covers everything.
Dang! I forgot to put this BB cream in the group picture. But anyways, finally reunited with all other makeup haul.
I’ve heard from some bloggers’ treading that L.A. Colors is going be a permanent line at Target. I’ve seen this L.A. Colors at my dollar store and I thought of sharing what I think about this brand which will be going to Target. Frankly speaking, I haven’t the least idea how good the quality of L.A. Colors since I don’t shop for makeup products at dollar store/dollar tree store but this time it’s an exception.
Here are the makeup products from my haul, so let’s roll.
First thing first, I got this L.A. Colors Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Net wt: 0.22 fl oz for $1.25
It has an ultra fine applicator that works nicely on lash line. If you have tried Elf liquid eyeliner and like it then you will like this one too. It’s not waterproof but it holds on pretty well for that price. The liner glides with the liquid formula and it’s not messy or hard to apply. It takes about 2 mins to dry up. I think this is a decent eyeliner for those who just starter doing makeup. The price is right and a decent quality to practice eye lining.
L.A Colors Lip Color in Cherry Red. Net wt: 0.11 oz for $1.25.
This comes in several shades but I picked this cherry red lip color instead. It says here on the packaging that this lip color – moisturizes with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera. I smell a nice
slight of fruity scents but not overpowering. It glides beautifully and oh my, I’m truly impressed with this lip color. It’s so pigmented and creamy. Love it. Furthermore, it’s gives a velvety finish which is so lovely. This lip color is not gunky or sticky at all. It has long wearing power. I’ve tried i and going to grab a few shades for the next round at the dollar store. You can also find it at Target. Look for L.A. brand 😀
BB Cream 2 in 1 Tinted Cream in medium shade. Net wt: 1. fl oz for $1.25
I saw a Light shade and Medium but not the darker shade. So, I cannot confirm if they have a darker tone for this BB cream since different dollar store might have some different inventories at times. This tinted cream reminds me of the Olay BB cream I picked up not too long ago. I did a post on the BB cream recently. Hit here to get you back to the link. On swatch this formula is light and not thick at all. I notice that this shade has a pinkish cool undertone. It smells very nice and the formula is so moisturizing. Okay… I’ll leave it for later review … it will be more fun that wayyyyyyy…
I also have in my dollar store bag this cute little eyeliner by elf. I got it in Black. Net wt: 0.17 fl oz for $1.50
This is a nice liquid eyeliner with a fine tip applicator. It makes creating the lining super easy and fast. It dries up quick and glides incredibly well. For beginners, I suggest using elf liquid eyeliner instead of paying for the big buck, I do recommend that you invest in this first. It works and for me that’s what matters.
Luxury Care (LC) Moisturizing and Revitalizing Cream with Vitamin E and Dead Sea Minerals. Net wt: 1.69 fl oz for $3.00 a jar.
Dead Sea Minerals – I was like doing a double take when I saw the printed words on the packaging. Okay, I’m always curious of the Dead Sea scrolls and dead sea minerals make my curiosity grew to 110%. I’ve never heard of this LC in my entire life and I’m super sceptical to even apply it on my skin but after reading the ingredients that contains water, extract fruits, kernel oil and shear butter with other ingredients I feel more confident in trying it out. Honestly, skin care products – I prefer to go to the professionals or the high end store but never at Dollar store.
Anyways, I did try it and this is what I think. First of all, this moisturizing cream smells amazing. It’s cooling and it’s very light on skin. It blends and absorbs quickly while leaving skin moisturized. I’ve wore it for the whole day and so far so good. I’m scare of formula that causes breaksout (ok, doesn’t anybody?) but whew… the cream feels comfortable actually. Well, I may use or may not use it in the long run but here is what I think from my perspective. For only $3.00 I’ll say go for it girl if you can find it at your dollar store. I think it is a good product to try. Did I also mention that it’s cruelty free? Made in Israel.
Eurospa Facial Mask Skin Brightening Vitamin E in Pearl. Net wt: 15 ml for $1.00
I saw some other mask that were selling for $1.99 at drugstores and at the dollar store it’s only $1.00. I’ll check if it’s legit once I’ve mask myself with this beautiful pearl. The packaging looks so inviting . Oh dang!!! I wanted to wear it now but I can’t since I’ll be going out in less than 10 minutes. Anyways, I will share my 2 cents in my next post wearing this white mask (he!he!he!) in my next post. On the packaging it claims to help tone and rejuvenate complexion, clear blemishes, minimise pores and enhance blood circulation. Okay, all that you need is in one sachet. Pretty cool and for a buck … I’ll probably be hopping over to the dollar store to grab a few more. By the way, this mask is Made in Korea in case you like to know 😀
Last but not least is this L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Traditional. Net wt: 0.49 oz for $1.25
Okay… hold it right there. Behold this lovely and rich pigmented L.A. Colors eyeshadow palette. One word to say is that “I’m Impressed”. I was taken aback by the pigmentation, the creamy texture and the shades are so incredible. Alright, the packaging is not the most adorable or cutest on the shelves but presentable. It comes in a plastic packaging with an applicator.
I learned not to judge a book by its cover and I can tell you that this eyeshadow palette is awesome. I’ll be doing a review and makeup tutorial using this L.A. Colors palette. I can use all the shades in the palette and they’re beautiful. It gives a pretty dewy finish.
So, here are my thoughts and well my review on my dollar store haul and I hope you find them interesting and helpful. So, the next time you walk pass the L.A. Colors aisle at Target or Dollar store, stop by to say “hi”. Who knows, you might stumble upon some pretty awesome products with incredibly insane price where everything is less than $3.00.
Will you pick up L.A. Colors makeup products after having read this? Please leave comment below. I love to hear what you think.
Okay, don’t forget to check out my next post reviews from my dollar store makeup haul and until next time take care and stay beautiful.
As always, thanks for the love. I’ll check back with you guys tomorrow 🙂
