First, I found these three Almay Intense I-Color shadow trios. These are customized shadows that will bring out your eye color when applied to the lids. Honestly, I wasn't expecting a whole lot when I purchased these. I have never used any Almay products before. I feel that their marketing is geared towards an older population which could be why I was just not drawn to their products before. But for $1 price tag-why not?
I purchased three of the trios, one for blue eyes, one for brown eyes and one for hazel eyes.

Almay Intense i-color trio for blue eyesOhmygosh. I can't believe I was thisclose to passing them up. I'm so glad I purchased these.
Here I did a daytime look with the brown I-color trio. This color trio reminds of Neapolitan ice cream. lol.
Then I found this L'oreal HIP shimmer bronzer, also for $1. There was only one shade available for purchase, Blessed #895.
The bottom compartment holds a mirror and a small brush that snaps into place. The brush is very flimsy and I probably won't end up using it unless I'm in a pinch. I like that this bottom compartment does not add any extra bulk to the packaging.
Swatches of BlessedThere is some gold shimmer specks that are found through out the powder. I like the color and I think it would accentuate my skin tone just fine. I have been collecting bronzers like crazy lately too so this might sit on the back burner for a bit while I work through the rest of what I got.
And I needed another chapstick, so I picked out this one from SoftLips. It is made with beeswax. Interesting. I thought application was very nice with this chapstick. Very moisturizing. I also like how the tube is shaped like a lipstick instead of a tube of chapstick. Very cool.
What did you find at your local Dollar Tree this month?
A dollar for my thoughts,
