When you say TK Maxx (in the US TJ Maxx) you don’t necessarily think “that’s where I’ll get my make-up from“. So imagine my surprise when I went wandering around the store and came out with some cracking finds! I am talking Stila, Elizabeth Arden and Eyelure retailing LESS THAN HALF PRICE!
I’ll start with the Eylure Double Lashes. These are by far the best falsies on the market! Easy to use, no mess, no fuss and fantastic glue! I wanted these to darken my eyes and give a really dramatic look (mid twenties crisis, anyone?) and these beauties set me back £1.99. Yep, you read that right. The RRP is £5.99. I am already winning at life!
Next up: Elizabeth Arden Double Density Volume Mascara.
I was practically giddy when I found this! I usually find that when I come across something too good to be true, it usually is. I picked this up thinking “I bet it’s some shade of brown“, being the girl that sticks strictly to the blackest black, I couldn’t believe my luck – it was black! I had to snap it up at £5.99! This retails in Boots, Debenhams and the likes for £21.00. Now I know you can get this off some obscure websites for £7, but honestly I like to know where my make-up comes from so I generally stick to stores I know. I love this mascara, it glides on and stays put all day with no flaking.
Finally, Stila Perfecting Concealer.
Now this I think was my best find. I did have a “moment” when I realised the only shades available were Shade C (too light) and Shade H (far too dark). I almost slumped away in disappointment, until I tried mixing the two on my hand – et voila! The perfect shade for my skin tone! This stuff gives amazing coverage, and the shades are actually ideal for me to contour, win-win situation for me! I snapped up these baby’s at £2.99 each, RRP is usually £15 each! #bargain
So for those of you adding up, the original retail for this little haul should have been £56.99, but thanks to TK Maxx I spent just £13.96.
If that ain’t a bargain, I don’t know what is!
