T K Maxx is a store in which you either come out with absolutely nothing or bags full of bargains that were just too good to miss (that’s what I tell myself anyways). I’d heard on the blogger grapevine that people had recently picked up some beauty gems so I thought I’d try my local store. To say I spent best part of an hour rummaging through the beauty section is nothing short of an understatement.
They had pieces from Nars, Bare Minerals, Bella Pierre, Stila, The Balm, Elisabeth Arden, Smashbox – you name it, they had it. I chucked things in my basket to look through and decide later and eventually wittled it down 5 items. It’s easy to go overboard and buy beauty items when they’re half price or less but you sometimes have to take a step back and think ‘will this colour suit me/will I actually use it’ (although all my senses were screaming BYE EVERYTHING).
Nars Single Eyeshadow in Grenadines – £9.99 (RRP £18.00)
The Nars packaging is unmistakable so when I spotted this out of the corner of my eye, I subtly leaned over a woman trying not to alert her of the bargain she was missing right in front of her. I was excited to try different products by Nars as I was so impressed with their recent colab with Glossybox, and obviously as you probably well know, eyeshadows are definitely my forte. I’ve discovered that berry shades really compliment my eyes (who knew?!) and have been using Maybelline’s Pomegranate Punk non stop so I thought this would make a great crease/transition colour.
Yes To Tomatoes Acne Clearing Facial Toner – £7.99 (RRP £14.95)
I’d never used a toner before but with having Acne prone skin, I’m willing to try anything. I’ve completely rejigged my skincare routine and my skin is a million times better and I think this is a large contributer to it. Although it’s specifically for acne, I don’t find it harsh on the skin at all. If you have spots trying to rear their ugly head, putting some on a cotton pad and placing it on the area for a few minutes helps to dry them up so much quicker than leaving them to their own devices.
Crunching the numbers, this little lot should have cost me £70.94 if they were full price however I paid a measly £33.95. Savings of £36.99 is definitely nothing to be sniffed at. If you haven’t had a trip to TK’s in awhile, I suggest you have a trip down and see if there’s any beauty bargains to be had. There might just be something with your name written all over it.
