Weekend Finds: Maybelline, CoverGirl, E.L.F, oh my!

It's been a while since I've been to any of my fave spots, Big Lots and Dollar Tree, so I decided to pop in this past weekend.  What was supposed to be trips to run in and get cleaning supplies and miscellaneous stuff for my home ended up being me picking up items I had no intentions of buying.  It never fails.  This time, I spotted a lot of beauty goodies- Maybelline Hydra Time lipsticks, CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume mascara, NYC Cheek Glow blushes, Maybelline Define a Brow pencils, etc.  You know I picked up a few.  Here's what I scored.

(l)- (r):  Maybelline Hydra Time lipsticks, Maybelline lip brush, Maybelline Define-a-Brow eyebrow pencil- all from Dollar Tree

I'm so glad that I found the Define-a-Brow eyebrow pencils.  Dollar Tree only had the Dark Brown color.  It's strange that Maybelline discontinued that color because you would think that dark brown is a popular color for dark haired ladies.  Oh well, better for me.  $1 is better than $7.99 any day, so I stocked up on them.  



I love that it's retractable, so I never have to sharpen!

I also found an eyeshadow palette from a brand called Profusion.  I believe this brand is sold in Walgreens also and the palettes range anywhere from $0.99- $4.99 (?).  The colors are pretty and they look very pigmented.  I also bought an L.A. Colors lipstick in Frozen Berries (for swatch pics, click here)  and an NYC Cheek Glow blush in Sutton Place Peach.


From Big Lots, I purchased the Covergirl Lash Blast volume mascara, Epielle facial cleansing tissues (which seems to be a favorite among budget beauty bloggers), and two E.L.F makeup brushes.


I never saw this eco-friendly collection from E.L.F.  Do any of you own any of the brushes from this collection?


Have you spotted any cool beauty products at Dollar Tree or Big Lots lately?  What did you buy?

Nice haul! I hope I can luck up and find Define-A-Brow in dark brown. I don't know why it was discontinued. It was the most natural looking and long-lasting pencil I ever used.

I own several of the mineral E.L.F. Brushes. They are really soft. They work just as well as those from the Studio line.
