New TK Maxx Haul

Firsty, apologies for the image quality- phone camera is being replaced soon!

A few months ago I had my first ever trip to the beauty section of TK Maxx and those who read my blog know how shocked I was by my finds! This month has gotten even more surprising!

I won’t go into detail about everything that I bought but I thought I’d share some of my best finds. Have a look above for what I’ve purchased (p.s. the reed diffuser was also in a set of two for £4!)

Let’s start with the most exciting…! I managed to get an Anastasia Beverley Hills Highlighting Palette for £25 instead of £45! I’ve ALWAYS wanted one but couldn’t bring myself to spend that much but wow this was such a bargain! I even saw their Subculture and Prism Eyeshadow Palettes for £25 which is insane as I paid £45 for mine! I also bought an ABH liquid lipstick and matte lipstick both for £10 instead of £18! I should note just how many different lipsticks they had available in all different colours! It was difficult not to buy more.

I’m always down to try a new foundation and TK Maxx is great for this. I got 3 foundations from great brands. Natuarally I chose an ABH stick foundatiopn for £10 instead of £25, a Revlon one for £6 instead of £15 and a Stila one for £8 instead of…. I know that most of the TK Maxxs have the Stila foundatiuon and I recommend it as it comes with a brush and a concealer and the coverage is amazing and it feels super lightweight. I also chose Cover FX foundation drops which I highly recommend to anyone who likes full coverage foundation. They mix into foundation with minimal coverage to thicken it and extend the coverage and it works so well. I got this for a huge saving of £5 instead of £36 which is insane!!!!

For anyone who loves Boing concealer from Benefit they are selling this on their website for £8 and this is a beauty must have for anyone with dark circles and saves you £10. Overall I’m so pleased with my beauty finds and have to advise that this would be a great place to get gifts for a beauty lover.

TK Maxx has me shook!

I’ll start by being totally honest. TK Maxx has always slightly scared me. Upon entering you get confronted with such a random display of items with no idea of what you may find. For that reason I hadn’t been there in many moons. That is until… yesterday! And being totally honest…the day before that too!

This wasn’t a totally random choice. I had watched one of my fave makeup vloggers Stephanie Toms’ video of a full face of TK Maxx tutorial . Her experience there seemed incredible! She had managed to get some incredible bargains on good high end makeup.

Naturally, on the day I went straight to the store nearest me, which at the time was in Woking. I’ve got to be real here, this store wasn’t great. Most of the makeup was opened and there wasn’t a huge selection. I looked through everything and just gave up.

The next day I happened to drive past the store in Croydon and thought, hey ho let’s give this another try. I am glad I did! Once again, the organisation in the beauty section isn’t the best, but if you commit to finding some bargains, you won’t be disappointed.  There were items from Too Faced, Pixi, Eyelure, Nip and Fab, Mac, Makeup Forever, Ardell, O.P.I and mucchhh more with most prices up to 70% off which is insane for high end brands. There makeup brush sets  in particular impressed me and they had most of the Technic brush sets for half the RRP.

I didn’t pick up much as I already own a lot of the products (annoyingly as I could have saved so much on them!). I did manage to get a Pixi Contour and Strobe Palette for £8 instead of £24, Eyelure lashes for £2.99 instead of £5.95, Revlon lashes for £1 instead of £2 and a Nip+ Fab liquid lippy I’ve wanted for agesss for £3 instead of £7.95.

Things get better! Online I found an even bigger range of products! I thought I’d wait to take pics of what I’ve ordered but I thought it best to post now so you guys can get in on the bargains too as I noticed they disappear FAST. At the end I’ll link in a few of the best saves online that I’ve found.

LJL Tip: Get online NOW! Things go FAST!

My overall verdicts is that TK Maxx has the potential to allow you to buy a whole new bunch of high end beauty products for the price of low end items. The website is definitely worth checking out, as it is clear that some stores are significantly better than others. This is definitely the best place for those with expensive taste on a low budget and in the future I plan on doing another TK trip so keep checking and I’ll write soon on more discoveries!
