I recently saw this tag where people were sharing all of the great things they found at the Dollar Tree, so I thought I would give it a shot. How could you go wrong everything is only a dollar!
Well let me tell you, I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. I'm always really timid about trying new lipstick colors, and at only a dollar I really couldn't resist. Overall I walked out with spending $18 for all this stuff!
Congratulations if you just read through that, because I probably wouldn't have.
I'll share with you the swatches of the makeup I got and some closer views of them and later I'll show you how I used some of the products!
Next up is the Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in the shade 109 Modern Mauve. This color is a bit of a berry color, and I really love it especially for these winter months. The product goes on nicely, and on top of that it smells great. After a quick search I found the product listed on Wal-Mart's website for a whopping $6.97, that's what I call savings! The Dollar Tree I went to had this shade, Premier Plum, and Sweet Grape.

I purchsed L.A. Colors Lipstick in Luscious Wine and E.L.F. Lipstick in Fantasy. Out of these two I can't wait to try the L.A. Colors Luscious Wine color it's just so pretty and wintry (besides how could I not love this one since I love wine!) The E.L.F. Fantasy color is a bit darker than the L.A. Colors Natural, but also a brown color. The L.A. Colors lipstick also says it has Vitamin E and Aloe Vera in it.
This is the Milani Crystal Gloss in the shade 13 Whisper. Once again it was a total steal since CVS has it listed on their website for $5.79! This product smells like vanilla extract which is a plus for me; however, this color just doesn't do much for me. It will work if I just need a little shine though I suppose.

This is the final look I came up with in the end. I used the Wet 'n Wild Beauty Benefits quad (the second color) all over the eye, then in the crease I used the Studio Gear Holiday Palette shade Platinum. Also from the SG Holiday Palette I used the blush, and the shade Glimmer to highlight. From this haul I used the Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in the shade Modern Mauve, and the Milani retractable eyeliner in the shade Precious Silver on the bottom waterline.
