Dollar Tree haul

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

The highly anticipated store of my US trip: Dollar Tree. I was so looking forward to it, for the wide range of older shades of Maybelline nail polish but the store I went to didn't have any left, at all, na da :(

I browsed LA Colors instead, as $1 is a lot better than whatever regular price we are charged in Canada for this brand. Also found a few other brands there too.

First batch:
- LA Colors Nail Dazzling kit with a mini nail polish and 2 glitter jars
- LA Colors Nail Art Deco in Black
- Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color pen in Blue.

The pen was a surprise, I don't know how it ends up at Dollar Tree as it's still full price everywhere else. The Art Deco was available in almost every colour, guess they just restocked it. I also heard that the LA Colors Craze polishes ended up at Dollar Tree too, but didn't find any either.

Second batch, all LA Colors:
- Lip Smacking kit with a lipstick, a pencil and a lip balm in baby pink shade
- All-n-one stick (used as lipstick, blush and eyeshadow) in Pink Satin
- Mineral eyeshdows in Teal, Purple and White.

I was kinda curious about the mineral shadows in pressed form, as I'm so used to the pigment/ powder form. And for $1, they are so worth trying. I limit myself down to 3 colours only but there were about 10 colour options there at least, lol.

Third batch, the pencils:
- L'Oreal Colour Fresco eyeliner in Pinkcicle
- Maybelline Forever Metallics Metal Shine Lipcolor pencil in High-Pitch Pink
- Maybelline Eye Duets liner/ shadow in Pennies & Loafers
- Maybelline Expert Eye shadow in Purple Passion.

I was still sad about Maybelline and LA Colors polish but don't think the items I found was a bad deal. The Dollar Tree I went to was quite new, so things looked pretty neat inside. I'd go there all the time if I lived in the area, lol. Our Dollarama has stepped up their game a bit with the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty line, now they just need to stock on good nail polish, then I'm happy :)

If you are going to the US anytime soon, check out a Dollar Tree to see what you can find there. It was a fun trip for me. It is grey and rainy here today, so posting about makeup bargain might be the highlight of my day, lol. Have a good one!
