More inexpensive drugstore finds!

by ApollopoetrySt 2013-05-06

As usual, I couldn't help myself and went out on a hunt for new, inexpensive makeup products. I've been obsessed with doing this lately and also amazed at how many high quality products there are for SO cheap!

 

Here are the items I picked up:

This palette is by Giovi. I paid $2.99 for it and it's fantastic! That shimmery light pink in the left-hand corner is lighter than it appears in the photo (as are all the shadows) and is perfect for highlighting. This photo doesn't do them any justice, they are stunning and VERY pigmented. I purchased this at Rite Aid.

These palettes are by Profusion. I got Color #1 and again, the photo just doesn't do it justice at all. The green shadow in the middle on the right-hand side is this light, mossy green color that is so metallic and gorgeous, and the dark purple on the bottom left is also beautiful. I can see myself using that one for a really stunning smokey eye. The best part, this palette was ONE DOLLAR!! Purchased at Walgreens. Here is a link to the website: http://www.profusioncosmetics.com/index.php

This lipstick is by NYC, called Chiffon. It's a sheer, very light, frosty pink. I usually stay away from frost but this caught my eye and I actually really like it. It looks great on it's own or layered over another matte shade. Said to be a dupe for and mix of MAC's Opal, and Viva Glam Gaga. $.99 at Walgreens.

This is Mint Sorbet, by Sally Hansen. I have been looking for this shade for a few weeks now for spring and this is exactly what I wanted, a nice matte, mint green. I think this was $1.99 at Walgreens but don't quote me on that.

This is Boogie Nights, by Sinful Colors. I'm wearing it now and LOVE it. It's the perfect corally-orange. $1.99 at Fred Meyer.

I loooove this one. It's called Just You Wait (I think that's so cute). It's just a very sheer, iridescent shade with a hint of baby pink. Perfect for just a pretty, natural look. I got a coupon for this shade and the other Sinful Colors one so this one was half off. I got both for $3. 

 

I'd say this little haul was a success. Six items for $10! Awesome!

There are a lot of great finds at Dollar Stores and also discounted stores in general, however; you can find amazing deals on Cherry Culture.

We have Dollar Tree here and they have pretty decent stuff, but I'm jealous of my bff in Alabama. She has Dollar General, Dollar Tree and one other store that sells sooo much stuff that is hard to get around here without buying online. Grr.

I saw those at my local Walgreens for a $1 each. I want all 8 but my Walgreens only had like four of the colors. I think I'll go pick those up today. Did you like the pigmentation?

I got those palettes at Dollar Tree under the packaging name of Colormates.  I was really impressed with the pigmentation on them!  They're not chalky at all and dont need ALOT of application to cover the lid.  I too am on a hunt for the best inexpensive products out there.  It's addicting, right????

I have that NYC lipstick in Chiffon also. I used to hate it but for some reason it is appealing to me more and more. Also love their lipstick in Petal (number 314B) - If I remember correctly it is supposed to be a dupe to a MAC color but I can't remember which. Anyone know??

Yep. I love me some Walgreens. I dart towards the bright orange discount tags like a moth to a flame.

my hubby is ready to start having our own checking accounts b/c I can't keep my spending under control!  or so he says! LOL  i think i do just fine! haha but what else am i going to say? I love the mint green nail polish! I want that one!  I like the l/s in Chiffon as well. I have it and Petal and i used to know the dupes to MAC for them, but can't remember right now. I have it written down....somewhere..LOL that would take me forever to find, I'm sure. I really like the NYC line.  It's not bad.  I think it's awesome when you can find great deals like all that you did for $10! That's amazing!  I live in too small of an area to get any good items in at the $ store.  We only have Dollar Tree and maybe that's great else where, but here, we hardly get anything in.  Either that, or I always miss out.  Who knows.  I just know every time I go in, it's slim pickins if any pickins!  I think I've found 3 things from the dollar store, total.  That's nothin! Wish they would bring more choices in. I know I would buy a lot more!

Ya know I <3 MAKEUP!! SO SO MUCH!! But lately before I go ANYWHERE I hit up the Dollar Tree Stores first to see what I can find in the makeup section, and I HAVE ACTUALLY FOUND SO MANY DIFFERENT BRANDS THERE AND THEN WOULD GO INTO A REGULAR STORE AND SEE THE SAME ITEM FOR ALOT MORE MONEY!! So I FEEL SO GREAT KNOWING THAT I COULD HAVE BOUGHT maybe 12 of the same item at Dollar Tree instead of buying 1 at the retail store,lol!! GENIUS!! :) TO ME ITS ALL ABOUT THE PRIMER AND THE BRUSHES THAT MAKE THE WORLD OF A DIFFERENCE WITH ANY MAKEUP!! :) HUGS!! MELISSA

I love cheap makeup! I just got one of those N.Y.C. lipsticks, but i didn't like it so much, it was kinda slimy.

I picked up a big Profusion eye palette today at Five Below... They had a lot of palettes there - most were too glittery/metallic for me, but this one was really pretty and was a little less shimmery... but no matte. 

 

Its funny - I haven't been able to find a picture of my palette... here's a review on you tube  Mine is a lot more warm-toned... all the pictures I'm finding online are more cool-toned in their palette.  I'll put it on my list to swatch it out.

 

eta: okay YAY ! Here's  mine:  http://luvandmakeup.blogspot.com/2010/11/profusion-36-glamour-eye-palette.html  oh and it was 4.99 at Five Below.
