Every once in awhile, you score something undoubtedly awesome at Dollar Tree. I'm the first to admit I always walk out with something I don't actually need, but I'm pretty sure its because everything is $1. I've been stalking my local store praying that the NYC cream blushes that have been discontinued would hit here. I love cream blushes, especially in the summer. I like to layer a cream & powder for staying powers or where cream blush alone (sometimes just with tinted moisturizer) for a natural flush.
Left to right: NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Urban Spice, Mauvin' Uptown, South St. Seashell, Big Apple Blush, & Berry New Yorker.
I waited or so (IM)patiently & here they are! I'm actually pretty happy with the color selection. For me, these shades are perfect.
Left to right:Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Polish in Rose Amore, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Colors in Raspberry Race (a lovely orchid), Uptempo Plum Presto Pewter, & Teal-y Fast.
I wasn't expecting these Sally Hansen shades to be there so they were a lovely surprise. Obviously I need more nail polish right? I actually tend to like the Insta-Dri colors & I don't think these have surfaced at the Dollar Tree here before.
Maybellin Lip Express Lipstick n Liner in One in Fleeting Fawn (top) & Get Mauvin' (bottom).
These Maybelline pencils aren't something I remember seeing in stores. I picked one up awhile back on a whim in Fawn & I really love it. After doing a bit of makeup research, I around reviews for these pencils from around 2001. These were touted as being super long wearing & they didn't get very good reviews. HOWEVER, I like these quite a bit. They are more like moisturizing lipstick pencils. I wouldn't say they're long wearing but they are comfortable to wear which is great for me plus application is easy. Plus, I love the wood, these just look so cool.
Do you ever shop deals at the Dollar Tree? I've definitely had my share of hits & misses!
