Hey everyone! How are you? No really, how are you surviving this pandemic? Have you learned any new skills or read any new books during this time? I hope you and your families are all remaining safe and healthy. Today I am going to tell you about some Dollar General Makeup I have been loving. Keep reading to learn more.
Dollar General Makeup
So, how this even started was I saw a YouTuber talking about the Believe Beauty Foundation and she said she got it from Dollar General, the coverage was SO good on her and it just looked really nice. Of course I bought it. This was several months back, I’ve even mentioned this foundation a few times in blog posts. Fast forward to right when the coronavirus started spreading more and more in the US, I went to the Dollar General since it’s so close to get some essential items and I decided to stock up on some makeup if and when everything started closing. I picked up more foundation, a mascara, and brow pencil. Those are the items I will be reviewing for you!
Believe Beauty Skin Finish Foundation: Let me just first say, you need to try this! It’s amazing! It is medium to full coverage, and very buildable. It lasts a long time throughout the day, I am mostly oily and this works great for me, it is not fully matte and it’s not dewy. I think all skin types could wear this with no problem. It has a very smooth finish that looks natural and not overdone. This foundation comes in 10 shades, from light to dark. It comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump. It has honestly become my go-to foundation. $5 / Dollar General
Believe Beauty Extended Lash Lengthening Mascara: This was totally bought on a whim, I knew I was almost out of the mascara I was using so I picked this up. The Believe brand has several different types of mascara, but I was drawn to the lengthening claims. I REALLY love this mascara, it lengthens like it says, gives my lashes more volume and is blackest black. It doesn’t flake and it stays on all day. Which leads to the only negative thing I have to say about this mascara, it is pretty hard to get off. I will take all of my makeup off with my Makeup Eraser (review here), and it looks like everything is off, I jump in the shower and get out and I look like I have raccoon eyes. Any leftover mascara ends up under my eyes, and it is really hard to get off. But that isn’t that much of a deal breaker to not buy it again. $4.50 / Dollar General
Believe Beauty Brow Defining Pencil: I typically use eye brow powder when I do my brows, but I didn’t see that in the Believe Beauty line, so I bought the brow pencil. I have really enjoyed using it. It is very easy to use, it fills in quick and easy and is really creamy. If you make a mistake, it’s easy to fix. The creaminess can be good, and also not good. With it being so creamy you do go through the brow pencil pretty quickly than you would a dry product. I have to sharpen almost after every use, because of how creamy it is. Also, with it being really creamy, it doesn’t ever seem to “set” on your brows, if I ever touch my brow because of an itch or something, product comes off on my hand. In the future, I would probably use a clear brow gel on top to set it. I would definitely repurchase this though. $4 / Dollar General.
Here is what everything looks like on me (keep in mind, my brows are just wild haha)
I really love this brand. I’ve only tried 3 things, but those 3 things have been great, and I can’t wait to try more. They have a full range of beauty items from lips to nails to brushes to fragrance and everything in between. Everything is $5 and under! I love my high end makeup and always will, but if you find amazing products at really great prices, why not?! So next time you run into Dollar General check out the Believe Beauty (it’s on the end cap in my store). I am surprisingly impressed! :)
Have you tried this brand before? What are your thoughts? Will you try it after reading my reviews?
