A few months back I saw that Dollar General was releasing their own makeup line, Believe Beauty. I am always on the hunt for affordable beauty products to add to my collection and share with you. So I grabbed one of almost every single Believe Beauty product that my Dollar General had in stock. I didn’t have the highest of hopes being that every product in the collection is under $5 but I wanted to check it out. My entire total was $102 and I got SO MUCH STUFF so that should tell you how affordable everything is.
I grabbed so much stuff that I couldn’t even use all of it in this look. Make sure you’re following along with me on Instagram to see more! I’m going to link whats available online but honestly, if you have a Dollar General just head there so you don’t have to worry about shipping!
BELIEVE BEAUTY BROW GEL // I couldn’t find a link for this but this was 100% my favorite product out of everything I picked up. It might be the best brow product I have actually ever used. I LOVED the shade, I grabbed it in dark brown and it was the perfect ashy cool-toned brow shade that I just love love love.
BELIEVE BEAUTY PRETTY AND PRIMED HYDRATING PRIMER $5.00 // They had three different primers in their collection. I grabbed the hydrating version since my skin is super dry. I applied this and let it dry down while I did my eyes and I really ended up loving how it felt on my skin when it was time to apply foundation. It had that good and tacky feeling that creates the perfect base for a full face of makeup.
BELIEVE BEAUTY SKIN FINISH FOUNDATION $5.00 // I dunno what Dollar General is out there doing in their lab but this $5 foundation left me shoooooooketh. The coverage was perfect. It lasted so well throughout the day. It didn’t cake, crease, settle, or break down. I grabbed it in the shade Ivory which ended up being an almost perfect match. If you’re looking for a good affordable foundation with medium to full coverage I think this would be an option.
BELIEVE BEAUTY BEAUTY SPONGE $4.00 // This is a pass for me. It’s just so incredibly large when you dampen it that it makes it almost impossible to get a flawless application. It doesn’t fit in the contours of your eye or around the nose. It was basically the size of my forehead and just generally annoying.
BELIEVE BEAUTY FOUNDATION BRUSH $3.50 // I’d skip this as well. It was fine and it’s definitely affordable but I’ve used better brushes.
BELIEVE BEAUTY COLOR CORRECTING CONCEALER $4.00 // This is a peach shade concealer so it’s perfect if you’re battling dark circles. It did a great job as doubling as an eye primer and concealer for me. I really liked the brightening I got from this and would definitely say this is a must grab!
BELIEVE BEAUTY DUAL-ENDED CONTOUR STICK $4.50 // I don’t always reach for a cream contour product but this was a really good contender for when I do. The formula was super creamy. The light shade was perfect. The contour shade was a bit on the warmer side for someone as pale as me but I made it work.
BELIEVE BEAUTY EYESHADOW PALETTE NEARLY NUDE $5.00 // They have about four or five different six pan eye palettes in the line. I went with the Nearly Nude palette and I freaking love it so much! The colors are pigmented, blend beautifully, build wonderfully. The shimmer goes on with your finger and packs a punch. I’m excited to play with it a bit more.
BELIEVE BEAUTY HI-DEFINITION SKINNY MASCARA $4.50 // I loved this mascara for the lower lashes. It was the perfect shade of black, didn’t clump or transfer.
BELIEVE BEAUTY EXTENDED LASH LENGTHENING MASCARA $4.50 // This was mehhhhh for me. I’ve definitely used better for around the same price. I wouldn’t reach for this again.
BELIEVE BEAUTY IN THE TROPICS BRONZER $5.00 // I’d skip this too. It blended well but the color just didn’t do it for me. It had a bit too much shimmer in it for me for a bronzer.
BELIEVE BEAUTY BORN TO BLUSH $4.75 // This was such a pigmented blush which actually left me hating it. It’s almost as if it had too much pigment.
BELIEVE BEAUTY RADIANT FINISH HIGHLIGHT $4.75 // I really loved this highlight. I grabbed it Pop Of Pink and it was such a pretty shade. It blended really well and it’s definitely getting added to my main collection.
BELIEVE BEAUTY LONG-LASTING EYELINER SO SLATE $3.50 // This is hands down the BEST drugstore eyeliner I have ever used in my life. If you grab nothing else, grab this!
BELIEVE BEAUTY LONG-LASTING LIP LINER $3.50 // The lip liner was great. I grabbed the shade Barely There and I love it. It’s the perfect mauve/nude that could be paired with multiple lipsticks.
BELIEVE BEAUTY SATIN CRUSH LIPSTICK $4.00 // I grabbed this in the shade Vintage Romance and it’s a whole ass mood. I love it. Perfect for every day and so many different looks.
BELIEVE BEAUTY MAKEUP PERFECTING SETTING SPRAY $4.50 // This setting spray was fine, it did the job. Was it the best ever? No. But it was fine!
So there you have it, all of my thoughts on all of the Believe Beauty products that I have tried so far. Overall I was actually really impressed and now I’m excited to use the rest of the products that I have! Be sure to tag me on Instagram if you grab any of these products!
