Where can you buy high end make-up products with a ‘not so high’ price?

I am like a broken record when it comes to talking about this place, but I don’t think many people realise how great TK Maxx can be for beauty steals!

I picked up the following items on my trip on Saturday and once again, I haven’t been disappointed.

Now there is no denying that trying to purchase good make-up from TK Maxx can be challenging. Firstly, as you can see by the picture, many of the items’ packaging can be a little damaged. But lets be honest, who cares if you can pick the product up at a crazy discount? TK Maxx basically sells all of those amazing high end products for a fraction of the price.

The main disadvantage of purchasing make-up from TK Maxx is that many customers seem to love going in, sticking their fingers in all of the products to test them, and then leaving them there (which completely infuriates me!) So unfortunately to get a great bargain, you need to be there just after new stock is put out (which of course can be luck of the draw). However, if you are lucky like I was on Saturday you can get some great deals. In addition to this, if you do find a product which is still useable but has some sort of defect, don’t be afraid to go to the counter and ask for a discount. Chances are, if you don’t somebody else will. TK Maxx have no use for those products and I have never ever been refused a discount there when I have asked. Be cheeky! I have had crazy discounts for amazing eyeshadow palettes purely because the cheap eyeshadow applicator sponge (that nobody even uses) is missing…so don’t be afraid to ask!

So on to the bargains I found:

Complete Bending Set – £7.99 (shown in image above):

This blending comes with a blending sponge (the equivalent to a beauty blender and to be used in the same way) and also a flat blending brush (very much like a dense stippling brush). It is not so much the price which was the most appealing factor for me here, but more the fact that this particular set is extremely hard to purchase in the UK. I can’t wait to try it out!

Stila Stay all day foundation, concealer and brush kit – £5.99

I literally could not believe my luck when I spotted this beauty! Coming in at £29.50 on the Stila website, at £5.99 I grabbed an amazing bargain! The unfortunate factor was that TK Maxx unsurprisingly had very limited shades. But if you are a beauty junkie like me, then you won’t mind mixing with a lighter foundation. It would also make a great Christmas gift for someone with a darker complexion. I will be doing a review on this pretty soon!

Stila’s Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyshadow in ‘Metallic Lilac’ – £3.99

Probably my best ever bargain! At £33.50 on Stila’s website, the fact that I purchased this for £3.99 is crazy. The pay-off and colour itself is incredible and I cannot wait to do a tutorial using this for a Christmas look! The product also comes with a Stay all day Liquid Eye primer.

Technic’s High Lights – £1.99

Although this is probably the equivalent price to anywhere else on the market, it is a great highlighter for the price. Again, like the blending set the fact that this is so hard to purchase anywhere else is what drew me to it most. Check out review comparing it to Benefit’s High Beam here.

So those are my steals from TK Maxx last weekend.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
