TJ Maxx finds :)

I know there has been some talk about beauty products sold at TJ Maxx and whether or not they are good.

 

I stopped there today and decided to look in that section. Just wanted to share with everyone what I found in case anyone is interested.

 

Korres Lip Blockbuster volume 2 $19.99

Elizabeth Arden toner $7.99

Bliss daily detoxifying toner $9.99

 

And that lipstick holder is perfect!!!! $3.99. I had to buy 2 :smileyhappy:

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

My Marshall's and TJ Maxxes carry a lot of various acrylic organizers and I am in desperate need to get my stashes under control. I've bought 2 in the recent past but now that I have a better idea of what I really need. I must get there because my make up collection is out of control and I cannot stand the disorganization anymore!!!! Ugh!

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

Prices may be a dollar or two higher than TJ and Marshalls - but there are a lot of good options:

Every once in a while I see a good deal, but packaging has almost always been opened, and in some cases the makeup has been savaged. :smileysad:

In case anyone is still reading this, I thought I would add I purchased Bliss Peeling Groovy serum for an amazing price, but it was NOT the same amazing serum. :-( Not as thick, no tingle. Clearly either expired or just not the same authentic product. I tried 2 of them. I tossed them out. I wish Sephora would bring these back.

What do you guys do when you see people swatching products at TJMaxx or Marshall? Do you tell them? This is so disgusting!

Hi just wondering has anyone seen the dior manicure sets out in any store? I'm looking for last years set or the year before, has the dior tools-Thanks

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I just got a few things at my Marshalls.  They had a lot of Shiseido and elizabeth arden products, the same ones you guys have mentioned.  The also had quite a few philosophy, too faced, bliss, dr. brandt, and ole henriksen products.  Mainly all skincare products.  They also had several hair products.  I also liked how they had the expensive products in clear security boxes so not only could people not steal them, but they couldn't open them to swatch them.  It actually made me want to buy the products, because I knew that they hadn't been opened!  Oh, they also had a lot of elf products there, which was strange.  The elf products are usually $3 each, and at Marshalls they were $2.69, not that great of a deal.  They also had a lotttt of eco tools, real techniques, and other off brand brushes there.  

The problem with Marshalls and TJMaxx carrying beauty products and supplies is that I buy things that I don't need, only because they are on sale! hahaha

My local Winners (Canadian branch of the same company) has had a bunch of good stuff recently. Mostly just odds and ends, no mass amounts of any brand. They've had Becca, Elizabeth Arden, Lise Watier, Shiseido, Bliss, NARS, Smashbox, and Dolce and Gabbana makeup. Nothing particular that interested me, but it's good to know they do get such nice brands in sometimes!

Daeidre, where are you located?  I haven't been to my local Winners ( College Park in Toronto ) in ages, but if they are carrying philosophy becca, nars, etc, I may have to make my way downtown!

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I'm in the Waterloo-Kitchener area. Two near me generally have pretty good beauty departments, but I was at Dixie Outlet Mall last week and they had a rubbish selection, so it seems to be really hit and miss! Keep an eye on them after gift periods-- my closest one had a huge stack of Philosophy gift packs below half price right after Christmas!

Thanks!  PS sorry for the super delayed reply.  I just finished exams, and needless to say, BT can be a major distraction!  I tried to stay as far away as possible until school ended.

Definitely curious now, I have recently found out there is one 15 minutes away. Very tempting. 

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I love going to TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Ross for their beauty sections. I always find dupes for the beauty blender and the tangle teezer and some brushes. I never buy the makeup or skincare just because I always feel like it's either expired, someone contaminated it, or it's just a bad batch. It's just fun to look at though hahah

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I see great stuff at TJ Maxx (and its sister, Marshalls) -- brands like Bliss, Elizabeth Arden, Shiseido, and occasionally Too Faced and Ole Henriksen...BUT it's incredibly disappointing to see customers swatching these items/stealing bits of the package if it's a gift set or something. Apart from devaluing the item, forcing the store to mark them down, it's just...gross. :-(

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

Yeah, I think that's why I prefer Nordstrom Rack for a lot of this stuff.  There many things are shrink wrapped which prevents people from opening, swatching, etc.  It's usually easy enough to find the items online so you can look up the colors.  For me it's hit or miss, either I don't find anything or I find a lot.  At least in Nordstrom Rack they seem to get shipments of product in big lots of the same brands.  Recently I scored a bunch of pretty Too Faced Shadows, a Laura Mercier Smoky Eye Palette, some UD false lashes, and the Smashbox Cherry Smoke Palette all at 50% off or more.

Agreed! The Rack often has awesome discounts on some really solid brands - I got my Too Faced Bronzing Wardrobe there for maybe $15 last September, and it was a summer exclusive for last year, so it wasn't mad old or anything! My rack constantly has a lot of Stila, UD, Smashbox, Too Faced, and Lorac makeup - usually limited edition releases from a few months ago at really good prices!

Hmmmmm, never see anything at my marshalls only the tjmaxx.

I know what you mean, I remember seeing 2 or 3 of the Balm's the Balm and the beautiful palettes a few years back that had been all swatched and gross looking. I wasn't familiar with the Balm then and little did I know that a year later I would be searching for this palette like crazy so I would have been even more disgusted.

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

It must have been the exact same time I saw B the B palettes at Marshalls because it was a few years ago.  It took a lot of hunting but I found ONE palette that hadn't been destroyed for me to buy.

 

You know Kohl's carries their line now.
