I remember when I first started my beauty blog, I used to do my beauty haul on Friday and if you have been following my posts you know what I’m talking about. But for those of you who are new here, feel free to read my previous Friday Beauty Hauls. But anyways, long story short, I decided to do a Friday Beauty Haul every once a month. I’ll share with you what I pick from the drugstores, Walmart and Dollar Stores etc… If you have any drugstore makeup products that you like me to do a review on, just leave comment below.
So, for this week I’ll start with my Dollar Store Beauty Haul. I got these last week but I just couldn’t find the time to do it until last night. Ya, I’m obsessed with makeup and I just pick and pick more of the makeup products and they’re piling up as high as an anthill.
Anyways, long story short. Today’ I’m going to do a haul and a first impression at the same time. So, let’s get rolling:-
Oh, yes remember that all the items are all under $3.00 mark.
I got a Top Coat by Revlon for $2, Eos lip balm for $3 and a gift set bag for $3 and inside this bag, we have Eye Define Pencil, Lip d’ovotion and an Eyeshadow Box all from Bonne Bell.
It’s like $1 each per item not counting the labor for the bag and that’s a great deal. Yipee!!! I love great sale and deals. Every dollar I save adds up and I got to spend on another item the next time round. That’s saving too according to my own interpretation (giggling).
Believe it or not, you can find some good products especially drugstore items at Dollar store or Dollar tree store nowadays. It’s convenient and cheap. You pay less at Dollar store than at a drugstore with similar products. Don’t get me wrong, I still love shopping at the drugstore but it makes more sense to shop at Dollar Store especially if I’m on a budget spend.
I’m excited to open this Eyeshadow box by Bonne Bell in Cafe Classics. I’m pretty sure that the items are sold separately at the drugstore or Bonne Bell Cosmetics website but in this case it happened to be packed as a gift set.
This is a pretty cafe shades that have shimmery and pearly finish. The texture is smooth and it has beautiful pigmentation. I did a color swatch on bare arm- meaning without primer on. The instruction on the website says that you can apply using dry or wet application.
These shadows are easy to blend and I really like the appearance I get using all the shadows from this shadowbox. If you love shimmery eyeshadow then this could be another drugstore brand to look for. The shadow pan is descent in size and it comes with 2 cute sponge brush. It comes in a plastic packaging which you can stash in your purse or jeans pocket.
So here is the finish look. I really enjoy playing with the colors and for this look I used dry application and without eye primer. The shadows stays on nicely and long wearing .
Next in the bag is the Eye Define Liner Pencil in Espresso Brown. There are 5 shades for color options. I have Bonne Bell eyeliner in the past and have always love how smooth and easy it glide on like a skyglider. The formula is creamy and it doesn’t drag or skip. I like it 😀
Okay, this is a fun new Lipd’ovotion by Bonne Bell. This comes with a twist-top applicator on one end and the brush the opposite end. I personally think that this packaging is genius. I love the idea of having a lip brush with a lip color together. So easy to apply the lip gloss with much precision.
By the way, its available in 5 shimmery shades that fit any outfits. This clear shade lipd’ovotion smells like caramel. Yummy! The downside for me is the formula. I feel that is a little bit sticky or tacky and if you dislike sticky lip gloss then you’re not going to like this one either. I’ll have to pass on this one even though I really like the packaging. It’s just that this sticky formula isn’t something I’ll reach for. So, I’ll not repurchase this again.
Eos Lip balm in Sweet Mint. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic. This is my favorite scented lip balm. It smells so good and it’s so so smooth. My lips feels so smooth and moist and I can feel the minty sensation on my lips. It’s not gunky or sticky at all. It has 7 different minty scents to choose and it’s available at Walmart and all drugstores.
I love the super adorable “kinder egg” packaging. The rounded top formula reminds me of the tropical hairy fruit in Asia called “rambutan”. You can googled it up in case you’re curious to know. I will repurchase again and again. Totally love it.
Revlon Colorstay Gel Shine Top Coat in 0.4 fl oz. On the bottle it says long wearing nail enamel. Well, I’ve been meaning to get a top coat a month ago and this couldn’t come in a better time. For $2 a bottle of top coat by Revlon, I’ll have to say I’m a happy camper. With summer approaching, all finger nails and toe nails are ready to be painted for flip flop or beach sandals.
So, I hope you enjoy this Dollar store beauty haul for this month and I’ll see you all again next month on Friday Beauty Haul.
