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 Smiley Happy

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!

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.

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

Yeah, I check mine all the time now for Shiseido. But since the 1st time which was a few weeks ago there hasn't been any, should have bought it ALL while I had the chance.

 

Now mine seems to have a ton of the Elizabeth Arden, they had like 3 full shelves of things!

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I noticed a bunch of Shiseido but mostly creams. I was surprised by some of the brands that were there.

Mine had the whole pureness line; wash, toner, moisturizer (that is my HG) but had never had the cleansing water and only got 1  but that to is now my HG cleansing water so I keep stalking the place!

Re: TJ Maxx finds :)

I want that lipstick holder! They usually are so expensive!
