Another YouTuber ThaTaylaa gave the brand a review in June 2019. Her video has since received over 128,000 views and garnered 8,000 comments.

“I don’t think I’ve ever actually been inside a Dollar General,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen one and walked in. Do we have them here? I don’t know.”

While she said she wasn’t “totally wowed,” Taylor said there are definitely some products worth checking out. One of her favorite products was the foundation, which she said she is very excited to wear.

4. Dollar General Is Not the Only Retailer to Create a Budget In-House Line

CNN Business reporter Nathaniel Meyersohn noted that Dollar General isn’t the only retailer to create a budget-friendly in-house beauty brand.

According to Allure, 7-Eleven launched its own beauty line called Simply Me Beauty in 2017. Similar to Believe Beauty, all of the products are under $5.

In another tweet, Meyersohn said that cosmetics sales have increased 31% in the United States since 2013 to more than $17 billion last year. So, it makes sense that anyone and everyone would be trying their hand at a beauty brand.

5. People Are Reacting to the Brand on Social Media

One Twitter user did her makeup with a $3 eyeshadow palette from Dollar General and shared the results.

“Women who use Dollar General anti-aging cream and makeup look like a million dollars after just one week…” Carey Frisch wrote.

Caroline requested that beauty influencer Jefree Star try Believe Beauty. She said the line is “INSANE!”

Brittany Huff said she went to Dollar General for some makeup after watching a review. She kind of loved the foundation, however, she said the concealer was “no bueno.”
