Dollar makeup gems

Who doesn't love makeup on a budget!? Being able to find cheap makeup that serves multiple purposes is not only great for the wallet but fun to discover what these hidden gems can do. Here are some of the products I've found for a little over a dollar (due to tax) that i think are just amazing and multipurpose. some descriptions are shortened due to repetition.. wil be continuing to add products as i find them for $1.00

L.A. Colors Automatic Eyeliner Pencil
L.A. Colors Automatic Eyeliner Pencil

Another multi use. .... Uses: eye liner, depending on shade lip liner, contour, depending on the shade brow pencil

L.A. Colors Hydrating Lipstick
L.A. Colors Hydrating Lipstick

These ... quick and easy all in one for a monochrome look... hydrating and subtle but great for on the go.... Uses: lipstick, gloss, eyeshadow, blush.. depending on the shade highlight.. some shades provide that oh so pretty "wet" highlighted look

L.A. Colors Mood Lipgloss
L.A. Colors Mood Lipgloss

Now heres one that may not be for everyone but when i first started doing makeup, i hosted what i called "glam-your" parties, which were parties for little girls where they could have their " makeup" and hair done. I used these a lot as lip gloss, but since it color changing , i would use it on their cheeks as well.. as "blush" for magical princesses.. it was great to see their little faces brighten when they saw it magically change color... not one for most adults but thought id throw it in for fun

L.A. Colors Pout Matte Lipgloss
L.A. Colors Pout Matte Lipgloss

Another gem.... this one is a little tricky to work with but if you are fast then you have another multi use dollar product... i find these for $1.00+ tax at my local Family Dollar stores... they dry to matte extremely fast and will not budge! After removing it leaves behind a slight lip stain, but i cant stress enough you gotta move fast... Uses: lipstick, lip stain, cheek stain, liguid blush and if you are brave eyeshadow

L.A. Colors Nail Polish Remover Pads
L.A. Colors Nail Polish Remover Pads

These aren't really much of a multi use product but they are extremely hydrating on the cuticle and nail so technically i guess it can "multipurpose." They are amazing at removing polish.. even some gels.. and since they come in thin little pads, you can easily wrap around the nail for stubborn glitter polish. They have no polish remover scent which is wonderful, easy to carry, no spillage threat. Very travel friendly. And as mentioned very hydrating.. they leave behind a thin oily residue which quickly absorbs into the skin and nail

L.A. Colors Mineral Blush
L.A. Colors Mineral Blush

Uses; eyeshadow, blush, lip color, nail color, depending on shades contours and highlights, eye liners

Kiss Nails (Pack of 30)
Kiss Nails (Pack of 30)

My local Family Dollar store has these for $1.00.. though they are not a multipurpose item they come in very handy for a quick at home, on the go salon looking manicure... what i love is they are so versitile and easy to shape, color and remove that even if you hold a job where you are not allowed artificial nails, you can still get the look and feel of a full set on the weekends and remove them for the work week

Good Sense Vapor Rub No Carton
Good Sense Vapor Rub No Carton

Generic or brand name, we referred to it as Vicks.... a staple growing up.... aside from its recommended use, we would also use it to prevent stretch marks during periods of weight gain/loss.. my mom had 2 full term pregnancies and zero stretch marks.. having worked for a podiatrist we would use this to erradicate nail fungus.. great multipurpose

L.A. Colors 6 Color Eyeshadow
L.A. Colors 6 Color Eyeshadow

Pretty as eyeshadow.. but even prettier as highlight, they can also go from subtle to stricking depending on how much you apply.. a quick suggestion, apply in bright light.. you will not notice it right away otherwise and may run the risk of overduing it... i recommended these for a client who has medium to tan skin and they looked lovely. Uses: eyeshadow, blush, face and body highlight, subtle nail polish, shimmery eye liner , if matte brow powder

Global Beauty Care Retinol Makeup Cleaning Wipes
Global Beauty Care Retinol Makeup Cleaning Wipes

Being a makeup remover wipe you wouldn't imagine much other possibilities but had to include these for a number of reasons; 1. They are $1.00 at my local Dollar Tree store, 2. They are amazing, they remove All makeup, including waterproof mascara, 3. They contain Retinol (vitamin A) which is in and of itself a miracle that most Dermatologists wont tell you about...Retinol promotes cell turnover which with time will lessen the visible effects of aging... (your skin will get worse before it gets better) ever heard of Retin-A?.. Retinol! All compound formulations are different and i am by no means implying to self treat, some skin issues require medical attention specifically if you already take medications, some people are highly sensitive to vitamin A. As for my personal experience, I have sensitive skin and for ME these work great as they do not irritate or dry my skin out, the scent not so great

Walgreens Cleansing Towelettes

Another product i couldn't find but will be posting a picture of the actual product. .. Make up remover facial wipes.. (no brand) .. another Dollar Tree find for guess what? .. $1.00... these wipes are awesome in that the remove everything! Much like the Retinol wipes, even waterproof mascara does not stand a chance... they have a beautiful scent as well....... however i found them to be irritating on my skin probably due to the fragrance, some of my clients love them... i did however find another use for my personal stash.. they make great and quick brush cleaners! + they dry quickly so there isnt much down time needed for your makeup tools.... i use these for my personal brushes in between deep cleanings

Vaseline® Jelly Original
Vaseline® Jelly Original

Okay so this isnt makeup but it is a wonderful multipurpose product. From beauty tool to medical purposes, this can do it all.... before there was face primer, eye primer, different varieties of lip balms, body butters that were widly available and affordable, there was vaseline... great as a facial moisturizer, lip balm, eyeshadow primer.. This is also recommended by some Dermatologists for people with eczema or severely dry skin, cracked heels, just slather it on

L.A. Colors Liquid Makeup
L.A. Colors Liquid Makeup

Now, this here isnt the actual product i found, i will include a picture of the foundation im referencing. Finding your shade is hard. However, being a dollar i purchased two. The lightest and the darkest available. Trying them out, i found that they were pretty great. More of a BB cream effect on me. I have large pores. This being said, i found this foundation did wonders at filling them in! Not even my primer does that... Did not crease, or budge. I tried these on a client. I used the darkest as a contour/bronzer and the lightest as highlight.. they gave her a beautiful glow as well. Uses: foundation, contour, highlight, concealer, primer.. all for $1.00 + tax. Here is the actual product i used...
