Dollar store thrifty

I do check out the Dollar Tree and 99 cent store from time to time. A lot of times there are brand name products to be found.  My brother works in the produce and market industry and a lot of times a whole palette of merchandise will be turned down by major stores simply because of a torn box or something equally simple and wind up at the dollar stores.  Sometimes discontinued and other reasons. But there are several bloggers and vloggers on utube who try products at the different stores and write reviews on products.  Very helpful!  I have used Milani make up products before from the drugstore and have found this brand at the Dollar tree several times. Recently I found these pretty glittery eyeshadows. I am making little Easter baskets for my nieces with beauty products and very little candy. 

They are very pretty colors and come in beautiful packaging as well. 
These compacts of Physicians Formula powders are 13.95 at CVS. I gave this one to my mother and it works great for her. 

These little paper/cardboard boxes. Are so pretty, I am going  to use these for the Easter baskets and then cover them with cellophane. 3@1.00 

Got both of these lip glosses from L'oreal Paris color riche, just a hint of color, perfect for young 20's. Got them both free as Dollar Tree accepts manufacturers coupons.  
Plastic baskets can also be used as Easter baskets. 
More make up and polish. 
This PF powder I got for myself and I think it works great.  I usually spent 30 on Urban Decay and I'm sure I will again but I really like this one and there is just the right amount of shimmer. 1.00!
Beautiful glittery nail polish by Milani for my sister.  She loves glittery everything so she will get a basket too.  She is a ballroom dancer and really glitters up for her dances so all the soarkles are perfect.  It's fun to be able to give more presents with the help of the dollar stores.
