Dollar Tree Finds!

I always forget about Dollar Tree. I remember when I was a little girl my Grandma would let my cousin Kelly and I go in and pick 1 toy after our picnic at the park every week. We always used to get the brown lunch box bag labeled "grab bag" or "surprise bag" or something. Then we would be upset because the toy sucked. Dammit.

How fun are these? 8 mini bottles come in 1 pack. Thinking back, I maybe should have bought 2 packs of the same designs because these mini bottles look like they would maybe be enough for 1 hand- only some of them though. Not every bottle has the exact same amount as the next. Some are filled to the brim and others look like it may be enough for just 1 finger nail. I think I will just do my bling finger with them.  I was surprised to find out that the little bottles they came in weren't flimsy. I think they might be glass. If not, it's that plastic that feels like glass. I got 3 different packs: 1 with caviar beads, 1 with flakies, & 1 with little shapes (stars, hearts). Im looking forward to messing with these.

This might be the best deal at the Dollar Tree. I initially got it because I have been on this bronzed highlight kick. Since this was more of a medium golden color with shimmer, I figured it might make a better highlight than bronzer. I am fair-medium skin tone, leaning more toward fair. I think I will need to wait for the summer to make it look right. If your a little darker (medium) than me, you could pull it off better than me. The pigmentation is pretty good and because of that & the color it gives off really makes a beautiful eyeshadow! I have worn it a couple times on my eyes so far and I am happy with it. Looks really pretty on my lid over top Barely Beige 



What I even went in for in the first place was some tea lights and to see if they had a medium brown hair dye I could use on one piece of hair that I highlighted too close to the root and really needed to be fixed! To my surprise, they actually did! I was a little nervous using my $1 hair dye but since it was just 1 piece of hair, I really didn't wanna buy a name brand hair dye for $7 to throw almost all of it out. And guess what, guys? It actually wasn't a bad hair dye! If your in a bind, tight for money, your roots are growing in, or you messed up some highlighted pieces (oops!), check it out! Not a bad deal at all. I was really, really surprised!


I think I am going to have to go back in a couple weeks and grab some stuff for my stocking stuffers for my family, friends, and you guys! I am having a Christmas giveaway here! Soon, soon!


Any good stuff you have found at the Dollar Tree recently?
