Dollar Tree has some great beauty products, organizers, etc. Sometimes the selection can be hit or miss. Normally when I go in I stock up on items I know I will use.
Below are items I've picked up this week. You can find any other beauty items at the Dollar Tree. I sometimes pick up paper towels, Kleenexes, 90% alcohol, hair ties, and whatever else I find :)
#1- Metal Hair Clips- I only keep a few in my kit but you can find them in packs of 6 to 10. I love these because they do not clip to hard and mess up the hair.
#2- Plastic Hair Clips- When my friends have really thick hair or the hair is not done I like these clips. They hold more hair.
#3- Cotton Balls- You can find large bags of cotton balls at Dollar Tree. Also, these ones do not shed terribly.
#4- Cotton Pads- I am really picky about cotton pads. I like them to be thicker and a nice quality. Nothing worse than pulling white fibers off a persons face. Again, I think these come in bags of 50 to 100 depending on stock. When I find bags of 100 I usually by a few. I also love these for removing my eye makeup.
#5- Comb Pack- I think there was 10 different combs in this pack including a detangling comb. They are not awesome quality but you are getting 10 combs for a $1. I am always leaving these places or giving them to friends.
#6- Colored Small Spray Bottles- I use these for alcohol. I try to keep alcohol in a colored bottle so I don't accidentally use it on something else.
#7- Hairspray- So important! I don't do hair but sometimes you need to spray hair back into place.
#8- Clear Spray Bottles- I try to move as many things into smaller packaging. I keep my MAC brush cleaner in one of these. Labeling is so important.
#9- Dual Ended Cotton Swabs- One end is pointed and the other is flat. I think I get 100 in a pack.
#10- ELF brushes- For $1 these are great. They are not MAC quality but they do the job. When I use these I never feel guilty of tossing them. You would be surprised how many people get creeped out with "clean" brushes. My friend turned into a Bridezilla and asked me to only use new brushes. Rather than having her burst into tears and hating me forever I just stopped to Dollar Tree and grabbed a few of these. They worked great and I just tossed them after. Also... I did her wedding makeup for free to help her out. Never again.... anyways... I am having flashbacks to my friend's awkward wedding.
#11- ELF Blotting Papers- Super duper! For gals (and guys!) who are oily these are great. If I give a friend a bridal "care package" I always include a few sheets of this paper.
#12- Latex Free Wedges- Just to save time I use latex free sponges. Quality ones can be hard to find but these are great. They do not flake off on the skin. Also you can wet these and they make blending easy. When my beauty blender is dirty and I have a foundation that applies better without a brush I will use these. Also, these wedges are amazing for cream blushes and bronzers.
#13- Microfiber clothes- I use these under makeup towels and I always sit my makeup on these. They make cleanup super easy. Also, you can just toss them in the washing machine.
#14- Small Sewing Kit- Sometimes when I am helping friends I am asked for the weirdest things. I started keeping a small sewing kit with me. I toss pins, extra needles, thread, small scissors and other supplies in this bag.
#15- Beauty Sponge- I like these sponges but I don't love them. I keep a couple with me. I only use these wet. Dry these are worthless.
That is it! You would be surprised where you can save $ sometimes.
How do you save $ on beauty products?
