TJMaxx Haul: High End Makeup For Drugstore Prices

TJMaxx has always been a favorite of mine, but recently I have been more obsessed than ever! This holiday season I found lux brands such as Bobbi Brown, Kat Von D, and more for up to 75% off (NO this is not a drill!!).  I’m sure many of you know, but for those of you that don’t, TJ Maxx is a chain discount department store that sells everything you need from clothing and shoes to bath and beauty to home products for a lower price. So being a blogger on a budget I scanned through the aisles of the TJ Maxx nearest me and purchased some amazing finds.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit 49.00 24.99

This might be dramatic but when I came across this kit at HALF price I screamed! Shade + Light is the absolute holy grail of contour kits, perfect for many skin tones available in refillable pans in both cream and powder versions. Both give off a buildable and beautiful finish that is amazing for any contour queen.

Stila Shape & Shade Custom Contour Duo 40.00 9.99

I never used this contour before finding it at TJMaxx but after just using it a couple of times I am in love! I applied each shade with my contour brushes from Morphe (M437 and R10) and it left a gorgeous and defined look very effortlessly reminding me of my Smashbox contour sticks!

Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Brow Definer & Groomer Brush 37.00 14.99

I was really excited about this find because although it is intended for filling in brows I love it for applying top eyeliner! The stiff bristles in combination with the sharply defined edge is perfect for creating a winged eye look or defining brows.

In addition to these top three finds I purchased:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream/ Power Contour Kit 40.00 18.99

Smashbox Matte Exposure Eyes 49.00 24.99

Smashbox Covershot Soft Light Eye Palette 29.00 14.99

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick 21.00 9.99

Sephora Price Ticket = $265.00

TJMaxx Price Ticket = $118.93

TOTAL SAVINGS = $146.07

Overall, the con of TJMaxx is you CANNOT order these items online because each store only gets a certain amount of inventory per each product, but the Pros are you save a ton of money and all of these products can be found at many different TJMaxx locations. Final note in my option the best buys I found were the Kat Von D Contour Kit, Stila Contour Kit, and the Smashbox Matte Exposure Eyes. So before spending your money at a makeup retailer think about heading over to TJMaxx to get your next lux beauty products without the lux prices!
