What's New At Dollar Tree?

Finding good stuff at Dollar Tree has been a struggle lately, don't you agree? Nonetheless, I did find a few *gems* today-
Lip Smackers has this SPF 30 "Kiss Therapy" which is sooo good! I bought a dozen and put them everywhere: my purse, car, bedroom, kitchen, desk,...
There was also a 3 pack of flower flavors (wtf??)
And these squeeze lippies flavored Coca-Cola came on super cute key chains 😘

Retinol skincare stuff (I swear I've seen these at Big Lots)
Sexist story time books for children...
And these"fancy" skincare items. Umm, you don't want to use this crap. Trust me. No good. Read the ingredients- I'd use this stuff on my feet but not my face.
I did buy the Ponds charcoal face wash and it leaves my face feeling waxy/unclean. I want to like it. But I don't.

FAKE Tarte Shape Tape (eBay)

I bought "Shape Tape" contour concealer in 4 different colors... what I got was 4 of the exact same color but labeled differently. The packaging feels super cheap. And they smell like Starbursts candy.
If the price seems too good to be true ☹️ girl it is fake! Do NOT waste your money!!
Also- I've heard people are buying fake Shape Tape, then buying real Shape Tape from Ulta; they switch the concealers and return the fake to Ulta to get their $ back. Ulta puts the fake concealer back on the shelf: BEWARE!!

(review) CoverGirl "Super Sizer Fibers" mascara

This mascara has tiny fibers in it that attach to your eyelashes to make them appear longer and thicker... Supposedly...
My eyelashes were barely even visible 
without 10 coats of this mascara, WTF?!
I also found it worked better if you let each coat dry before applying the next.
Will I buy it again? No.
* * * * * * *
Here's another try:
How did this crappy mascara get such good reviews online? Must be fake reviews! Who would wear this?! I don't look like I'm even wearing mascara, this is awful ☹️ At this rate I could use the entire bottle up in a week. Layer after layer after layer after layer: worthless!

(review) Kat Von D LASH LINER

This is a liquid eyeliner made specifically for the waterline. You're supposed to pull your skin away from your eyeball, paint the waterline, and then wait for it to dry before letting go. Kinda time consuming and awkward.
The applicator is a soft doe foot but it us kinda large and can easily make a mess- and getting that eyeliner gunk out of your eye when you're wearing contacts is a nightmare!
My eyes also felt DRY during the day- like how matte liquid lipsticks make your lips feel dry and uncomfortable.
Now here's some end of the day pics:
Nope. Did NOT last on my waterline.

(review) MAYBELLINE Master Precise CURVY liquid eyeliner pen

I bought this liner for $2.99 at Marshalls.
MAYBELLINE Master Precise CURVY liquid eye liner 310 black Review
It's really hard to get a thin line, this pen hoes on FAT!
But I do appreciate the color, heavy black.
Remember to snap the lid back on tight!
Here's pics I took 6 and 10 hours later:
Eyeliner held up well in 80degree weather.
I might actually repurchase this πŸ™‚

FAKE vs Real Dermacol (on eBay and Amazon)

I bought extreme coverage foundation from 3 different sellers and I think only 1 sent me authentic Dermacol ☹️ WTF?! And what upsets me most is that these sellers had excellent feedback- so hundreds of people have been suckered! They're putting a potentially dangerous mystery makeup on their skin, that's BAD!!
Look at the front of the boxes: the floral design should not be so bright.
Look at the back: the hologram should not be a sticker, and the white sticker should be perfectly centered.
Look at the side: too much Arabic writing.
Dermacol does not individually wrap.
The sellers who sold me fakes shipped from Racine, WI and Glendora, CA.
I think I paid around $9/each. So stupid πŸ’©

(review) ESTÉE LAUDER Double Wear Maximum Cover Foundation

Ok, so I've obviously been beaten with the ugly stick this past year-- I need EXTREME coverage foundation ASAP! I was patiently dealing with the struggle but today I had an emotional breakdown... So here we are, trying:Estee Lauder Double Wear MAXIMUM Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face and Body SPF 151C1 Cool Bone (palest color)
  Try #1
It is super heavy coverage.
WARNING! this stuff dries & sets quickly so you have to do one area of your face at a time. This stuff stays put! LoL touch your face as much as you want, *amazing*!
The best tool I found to apply this foundation was a brush, dab! dab! dab! Don't swipe. Then I dabbed more foundation onto spots that needed it.It dries matte. And cakey on me- I need to find a better primer. Do not use a setting powder because that makes it super cakey!Try #2:
Final conclusion: good enough but not a miracle. It keeps my redness covered all day but it makes me look like I have bad makeup skills because it's so darn cakey. It's not covering dry skin or textured bumps/dips well.Estee Lauder Maximum Double Wear matches my color better than Laura Geller foundation BUT Laura Geller looks smoother on my skin.
