Haul: Dollar Tree & Big Lots

The Dollar Tree and Big Lots are two really great places to find awesome beauty products at a very low price! I went and did a little shopping at each of these stores last week and wanted to share with you the items I picked up.

We'll start with the items I got from Big Lots. Usually when I go there I will find a least a couple of good beauty buys, this time was no exception. I picked up a pack of epielle Green Tea Cleansing Tissues, not sure how well these will work, I will let you know, but for the price I could not pass them up. You get 60 wipes in the package and they were only $2.00. They also had 30 count packages for $1.

I also spotted some of the Goody Spin Pins. I got one of these from Influenster a few months ago and I love it. I have seen these at Walmart and they retail for around $6-7, Big Lots had them for $2.50! Of course at that price I had to pick one up.

The last few items I got were nail polishes (like I need anymore lol) They were $1.00 each. I got a Sinful Colors Magnetic polish in the shade Polar Opposites, I don't like the magnetic part of these polishes, but you can wear them just like regular polishes. I also got a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in the color Blizzard Blue, it's a sheer color, but looks awesome layered over black. I got a NYC polish in the shade Python Green and a polish from the Holiday Lights line that was out in Rite Aid stores last Christmas. It does not have a color name on it, but it's just a clear/white flakie polish with the super cool light up brush!

Also from Big Lots I found a set of Sally Hansen mini polishes called Happy Manicures with Gem Crush, never seen any of these before. The set comes with Big Money, Be-Jeweled, Bling-tastic and Lady Luck. The names are not on the bottles so I do not know which is which. These glitter polishes can be wore alone with two coats. They are super pretty and so sparkly! I got the set for $3.00


Moving on over to the Dollar Tree. I went there specifically because I heard that they had Milani products, ummm Milani products for a $1.00, I think so. I only got three items, a nail polish in the shade Pink Pop (pictured above) and two of the HD Advanced Lip Colors, one in Classy Nude and one in Raspberry Blush. I really like these lipsticks they are creamy and feel very moisturizing on the lips. Also they are kind of sheer, which I like, but if you like darker lipsticks you can build them up.

While I was there I seen some L.A. Colors Trio and picked up a couple of those as well, I got Sunflower and Orchid.

I also wanted to pick up one of the NYC Sunny Bronzers, so I had been looking for it at Walmart cause I thought it would be the cheapest there. Well all of them had been opened, so I thought I'll just run by Rite Aid and see if they have it, they did and to my amazement, at a cheaper price than Walmart! $2.99 at Rite Aid versus $3.97 at Walmart! I'm hoping this will make a good bronzer for me since it is kind of light and so thankful that is does not have shimmer!


Have you bought any new beauty products lately? If so, what did you get?

  1. Those are some great deals. I also use the NYC bronzer and it's good because it's not too heavy/dark and also doesn't have shimmer. For some reason, a ton of bronzers have shimmer in them which I just hate.

    1. I know, why do they have to put shimmer in a bronzer LOL. So far the NYC has been working well.

  2. Score! I love spin pins, and I found some generic ones once but they were NOT the same. I haven't found any super deals in a while, I was just at my Dollar Tree and they didn't have any Milani :(

    1. I had no idea they had generic spin pins! Thanks for the heads up on them, cause I probably would have tried them if the price was right :)

  3. I just picked up that NYC last week, too, along with some new (at least to me) duochromes! I wished we could get L.A. Colors, those trios look super pigmented.

    1. I love NYC products! Some of the L.A. colors stuff is super pigmented and other times they are a total fail :/ We shall see how these work out.

  4. I'd love to see how the green tea wipes worked out. I love reading affordable posts like these, I purchased LA colors Sunflower Trio about 2 months ago. It's not super pigmented but with a white prime and enough packing, it'll get the job done. Great post!

    1. Thanks for the tip about the white primer, will keep that in mind when testing these trios out :) I'll have a review of the wipes up within the next couple of weeks.
