Dollar Tree Makeup Challenge

Dollar Tree Makeup Challenge

Hi loves!

I have watched a couple dozen of these Dollar Tree Makeup Challenge videos, and ya’ll know how much I love the Dollar Tree so I knew I had to do the challenge too!

It was half pretty good and half a hot mess. Oh my god.

Dollar Tree Makeup Challenge

Sassy and Chic BB Cream

Sassy + Chic BB Cream in Light 1 and Medium 1

These were by far the most terrible foundations I have ever tried. Ever. In my life. I love trying out new foundations, but this was unbearable! I set it with a Colormates powder from the Dollar Tree and it took about half of the shine away with about 3 layers! The powder stuck to every single hair on my face. It was not pretty haha.

LA Colors Eyeliner and Eyebrow Pencil

LA Colors Eyebrow Pencil and Eyeliner Pencil

The eyebrow pencil was ok. It was one of the best out of this bunch, to be honest. The color was a little off for me, but not too bad.

The eyeliner was very black and smudged nicely, but it had absolutely no staying power and ran all over the place.

LA Colors Hourglass Volume Lash

LA Colors Hourglass Volume Lash Mascara

Ok, this wasn’t the best mascara ever, but it was not the worst! It separated my lashes and after 2 coats did give them some volume and thickness.

Elf Blending Eye Brush and Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Brush

ELF Eye Blending Brush and Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Brush

These brushes are AMAZING. But you can buy them anywhere. The ELF brush is always $1, and the Wet N Wild brush is $.99 and often on sale BOGO 50%.

LA Colors Pout Lipgloss Matte

LA Colors Pout Lipgloss Matte (Still wet, not set)

L-R: Kiss & Tell, XOXO, Sweet Lips, Let’s Kiss

Pros: Super pigmented. Doesn’t go anywhere once it sets.

Cons: Takes FOREVER to set, if it ever does. Kiss & Tell never set for me, but Let’s Kiss did after about 20 mins.

LA Colors Pout Lipgloss Matte

LA Colors Pout Lipgloss Matte (Dry/set)

L-R: Kiss & Tell, XOXO, Sweet Lips, Let’s Kiss

LA Colors Matte Lipstick

LA Colors Matte Lipstick

L-R: Enduring, Stay Put Plum, Relentless Red, Forever Fuchsia

These really, really smell like Playdoh. For that reason alone I will never wear these! They stained my hand for a full day after I did these swatches, so I feel like they would be a nice lip stain.

ThredUp Haul – Online Thrift Store

ThredUp Online Thrift Store

A few months ago I fell sucker to yet another Facebook at. They have been really getting me lately!

This one was for high end secondhand clothing- that you can shop online for! An online thrift store? Yes please! Now I just need an online Marshalls and I will be the happiest girl in the world.

ThredUp is a company that gets gently used clothing from normal folks like us and they sells them at deeply discounted prices. I bought so many pieces for only $49! Think J. Crew and Express and H&M.

Watch my ThredUp haul to see what I found at this amazing online thrift store!

Ok, you agree with me right? Simply amazing clothes and they were so affordable! They were even cheaper than the prices I was saying because I also used a coupon for 40% off my first purchase. (always google coupon codes before you check out! I also use the Honey google chrome extension to find coupons and eBates to get cash back on most purchases!)

Their website is amazing. You can search by anything you can think of, and their filters make it so you get exactly what you want to see. They also have an amazing app that works SO well!

You can search by brand:

ThredUp Online Thrift Store Search By BrandAnd you can search by just your sizes. Once you set them, all you have to do is toggle that option on and whatever you search, only your sizes will display. Super easy!

ThredUp Online Thrift Store My Sizes

They also have seasonal shops so you can browse through what is on trend for the season, and they will often have special sales on those items too!
