I hit a makeup jackpot at the Dollar Tree recently. I went to two different stores in different nearby towns as I was driving home from a visit with my Mom. I usually check in just to see what makeup is available on my 40 minute drive home.

Not sure why but the Dollar Tree in my town has a poor selection of makeup. They don’t seem to get all the good brands like the other stores in my county. Seems to me they get all they yucky cheap stuff while the other stores get good brands.

Loreal

Ten Lipsticks. Yes 10 and only a dollar each. Woo hoo! Too many colors names to type, but from several color families: red, wine, pink, neutral, soft brown.

I also got one Maybelline lipstick in Cranberry Crush. It worked great for mixing my own personal makeuptini lipsticks so I plan on using this one for my next melt down mix up session.

Lip Lacquers and 18 Hr Lip Treatment

Lacquer Shines and 18hr Lip Treatment

Sally Hansen

One 18 Hour Lip Treatment – (According to Sally Hansen) “Time-Release Moisturizing Formula Lasts up to 18 Hours! Time-release formula delivers superior moisturization hour after hour. Lips look and feel revitalized, smooth and healthy for up to 18 hours!”

Three Lacquer Shines – Two in Poppy and one in Jasmine. Same yummy scent as the Orchid I mentioned in a previous post read about it here Beauty Treasure

Two Collagen Lip Lifts – Sheer Peaceful Plum and Sheer Soothing Spice – Too sheer for me I like full creamy coverage. They’ll work great for melting lip mixtinis.

LA Colors Nail Polish

LA Colors Nail Polish

Five colors: Nuclear Energy – Bright Purple, Electrified – Glitter Pink, Phenomena – Bright Fuschia, Atomic – Teal green, Live – Silver glitter.

I’ve tried Nuclear Energy and Atomic. Both need 3 coats to be opaque. Unfortunately Atom stained my hands blue green so I had to rub really hard with polish remover to clean the color off my fingers.

Sally Hansen Lip Sheers and Cover Girl Gel Liners

Cover Girl Eyeslicks duo gel liners in neon pink and lilac. Hard to apply. I feel like I’m rubbing a crayon on my eyelids. Worry about tugging on my skin. It did work well as a base for my shadows. Helped my eye shadow stay on for hours.

I got over $100.00 worth of makeup for about $26! Awesome!  My best haul ever!

A lot of the lipstick will probably end up melted into my personal makeuptinis. I’m excited to see what I can mix up. I’ll let you know what mixtinis I create in future posts.

Have you ever had a makeup application mishap? The other day I was applying may face makeup L’Oreal Infallible Advanced Never Fail Makeup. It has a squeeze pump applicator that gets clogged easily. Otherwise I love the makeup.

It lasts all day and my face is combination oily/dry and so I can look all greasy by the end of the day with the wrong makeup. It has SPF 18 too! I like to make sure my face has enough sunscreen.  So that along with my face lotion which has an SPF 30 I should be ok against the suns rays.

Rotate True Match with Infallible

I use it almost daily; I rotate with L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup.  Doing my morning makeuptini application, I squeeze some on my makeup sponge and something goes awry.

I think it must’ve been squeezing past a clog and somehow I wasn’t pointing it directly at my sponge. Squirt, makeup shoots directly into my eye! YOW!  My eye feels icky and slightly painful mainly because of the impact of the makeup.

I pull out a hand mirror and see three blobs of flesh tone in my eye. Yuck, foundation in my eye! I’m trying to fish it out with my nail wondering if it’s going to irritate my eye. I didn’t want to have to use drops and ruin my eye shadow or wash my eye and reapply it all.  I didn’t really have time to redo my makeup.

Fortunately it didn’t cause serious irritation just felt a little strange for about 15 minutes. Like when you had stuff in your eye and got it out and then your eye feels dry and strange.

Several extra blinks later I felt normal and got on with my day.  That was one of the weirdest things to happen to my eye while applying makeup. I’ve had eye shadow in my eye and even the occasional eyeliner poke or mascara wand poke.  But never before had I mistakenly squirted face makeup into my poor eye.

Sorry eyeball. My bad.  I’ll be careful in the future.

Ok L’Oreal, great face makeup with your Infallible product, but do something about that easily clogged pump.  I’ve had issues with it squirting on my hands and clothes. The eyeball mishap was the strangest and a little scary.
