I am loving (again) LA Colors make up from Dollar Tree.

I recently purchased more LA Colors make up.  I have used them off and on for 4 years now.  I have been looking online and on You Tube for Dollar Tree Hauls.  I got to see some swatches or get a more in dept information about the make up.  I know $1.00 right?  It's got to be bad!  Yes, some are not great, but some are awesome!  It can be too powdery, or flaky- just tap your brush before you apply!  They are great with or with out primers.  The lipsticks are pigmented.  The nail polishes were a hit and miss for me.

Dollar Store

Everyone LOVES the Dollar Store!  Sure, it's only one dollar I will put it in my cart and.........$20.00 later....what?  why?  what did I get?

I usually buy coloring books, gift bags, some decorations and a few things I want and didn't need.  They usually have some make up brands.  I sometimes wonder if the "name brands" are old?  It's an old packaging.  Lately, I was able to buy elf. Maybelline, and Physicians Formula.  What I have rediscovered again is LA Colors.  I bought their make up a while ago and threw it away.  Why did I do that?  I am loving the lipsticks, blushes and eyeshadows- 6 pan and 12.  It's a hit or miss depending on the colors.  It's a dollar and I have gotten a few complements on my make up.  I think it's a good starter make up or if you are just learning to do make up and want to experiment.  I also like some of the nail polish. 

Other items I like is the cleanser and I was hesitant to buy it and compared it to a brand name and it's the same ingredients.  I also get the gloves and hats.  I try not to be OCD if my 2 kids lost a glove it's a dollar!  I know, but it's a dollar! 

What items do you like to buy at the dollar store?

Blurb: The trouble with Heartache Nina Spencer swore she was done with Heartache, Tennessee, when she left the town—and her sexy ex, Mack—in her rearview mirror. But when her bakery business is rocked by scandal, she needs a place to regroup. What she doesn't need is Mack Finley reminding her of peach-flavored kisses and the hold he still has on her. Mack never forgot Nina—not that he didn't try. Yet between caring for his family and organizing the annual Harvest Fest, he's overwhelmed and he needs Nina's help. They can work together without getting swept up in memories and the rush of brand-new passion…right?

 My thoughts: I really enjoyed reading this book. There were many characters besides Nina and Mack. It deals with old love, moving away or running away, a girl dealing with her parents not getting along. I felt like I was there with them, seeing the orchards and smelling the peaches. I have never read any of her books, but I will be sure to pick up her other books. I apologize if my blog is plain. I am still learning my way around this. I don't want to give out any more of the story, but this was a great fun read to end the summer.
