Believe Beauty review from Dollar General Store

Hello!  I’ve been MIA for awhile.  I started a new job recently, and have had a super busy Summer.

Believe Beauty by Dollar General is a great new line of cosmetics that is very affordable.  Nothing is over $5.  Jeffree Star-YouTube recently did a review.  He liked a number of the products, so I thought what the heck.  I bought the Eyebrow Styling gel in light brown, Volumin’ Eyes mascara in Intense Black, Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer in light/medium, and two lip glosses.  I spent $21.50 for five products.

Jeffree really liked the foundation, as he said it’s full coverage.  I don’t really wear foundation, so I passed.  There are quite a few items to choose from. All the items I got except for one was only $4.  You get a lot of product and the quality is amazing.  The lip glosses are .15 fl ounce and made in the USA.   Lipgloss The glosses are very hydrating and have no flavor and stay on well. Juneberry is a dupe for NARS lip gloss in Orgasm that sells for $24 for .18 fl ounces.

Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer this is a total dupe for Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector in light/medium. I use to use the Becca concealer, but it got to be too expensive at $32 for .16 ounces. Believe’s is $4 for .07 ounces.  A little goes a long way, but it does a nice job on my tired old eyes. This product is made in Poland.

Volumin’ Eyes Mascara in Intense Black was $4.50 and is made in Italy. This is a great mascara.  It goes on well and made my lashes appear more full.  One of the things I really liked is that it appeared that I had eyeliner on just by virtue of applying this mascara. Normally I don’t like when  that happens, but this worked out really well.

Last but not least is the Eyebrow Styling gel in light brown at $4. It’s made in Taiwan. OMG!  This stuff is flipping awesome!  My brows are super skimpy and well just look like crap.  I’m 60 and as I’ve gotten older they just keep getting worse. I go back and forth using various prestige brands. I’ve been using Anastasia Brow Wiz for a few years.   I’ve tried other mascara type brow products, but this by far the absolute best.  It filled my brows in nicely and stays put.  The light brown is a perfect taupe color.

This is a great read.  Selfie sticks need to go the bleep away!

We’ve all seen it. You arrive at the Taj Mahal or the Louvre, filled with pure anticipation to see a world-famous landmark for the first time. Yet when you finally reach the perfect spot for your long-awaited view you get hit in the head with a selfie stick. As you inch your way into the…

Bed Bath & Beyond haul

Hello and happy Saturday!  Bed, Bath & Beyond is a housewares department store in the US.  They also happen to have a huge health and beauty department.  I had some coupons that were expiring today, so I headed over.  Holy cow!  I haven’t been to BBB for ages, and frankly forgot how awesome their health and beauty section is. They have tons of cosmetics and a great selection of all things beauty.  The prices are cheap too!  I am always getting 20% off coupons in the mail.  Today I had store and manufacturers coupons.

Here is what I got:

Bed Bath & Beyond Haul 4-27-19

I got two boxes of hair color, antiperspirant, make up brushes and an overnight lip treatment. I spent $16.17 USD. The regular price was $32 USD!  Score!

I’ve been using the Burt’s Bees Overnight Lip treatment for about 6 months.  It’s a great moisturizing treat for your lips. The e.l.f. brushes were $.75 cents each! The brushes are decent quality, and for less than a buck each, yes please.  I’ve been using the Clairol Root Touch Up for years.  It works well and is super easy to use.  The color is light brown. I’m going to lowlight my hair tomorrow, wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by.

 

 

GoT

I heard that 1 billion people tuned in last night for the final season of Game of Thrones.   I have not seen one entire episode.  I tried watching it once, but it was too violent for me, although I did enjoy the gratuitous male nudity. 🙂

This was the only guy I noticed.  Is it worth watching all the previous seasons?
