Dollar Store Haul

October 5, 2009 by  
Filed under Bargains, Swatches

Lately I’ve had a recent interest in getting my hands on some eyeshadows from L.A. Colors, no thanks in part to QueenBMakeup, a.k.a. Alejandra. If you don’t know who QueenBMakeup is, then she is someone DEFINITELY worth checking out. She doesn’t do YouTube videos (yet…keeping my fingers for the day when she may start doing YT tuts), however, she does do live BlogTV tutorials and is AMAZING! Alejandra also posts quite a bit on the MakeupGeek.com forums. She offers a lot of inspiration for looks with great tips and cheap alternatives, has a great eye for color combinations, and has some of the most awesomely phenomenal blending skills I have EVER seen! Just to give you a sampling of the color creations this girl can do, with her permission, I attached some photos below. I had such a hard time trying to pick between the 3 pictures, that I just decided to use all 3 of them, haha! Now gaze in wonder and amazement at the beauty that is QueenBMakeup!! ooOOooo!! Aahhhhhh!

Anyways, now that I was sidetracked by beautifully applied makeup, back to the original intent of this post. QueenBMakeup has used L.A. Colors in some of her looks and in some of her live tuts, and because of the color pay off that I have seen her get with minimal effort, I decided this brand was worth looking into; that and I HIGHLY value her opinion when she recommends brands to check out. I went on a massive trek around my small, itty, bitty town looking for this brand after emailing L.A. Colors headquarters to find out where I would be able to purchase their products. I was in luck and found a ton of their stuff at 2 locations in my town: Dollar General and Dollar Tree. I got everything for $1.00 to $1.50! Woohoo! Here’s pics of everything I got! Swatches coming soon! :D

L.A. Colors Haul
Everything I got from Dollar General: 7 different eye shadow palettes, and 4 Art Deco polishes. The 12 color palettes were $1.50 but everything else I got for $1.00!

And here’s everything I got from Dollar Tree…they didn’t have as much of a selection as Dollar General, but I was still able to get stuff here that Dollar General didn’t have. 2 blushes, 1 eye shadow palette, and 4 Art Deco polishes. Everything was $1.00!! :D

Here’s better pics of the Art Deco polishes.
