NARS from TJ Maxx Haul

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you my haul from a few weeks ago.  My girl Joy tweeted that she found some NARS goodies at TJ Maxx and that same day I went to two different stores!  NARS is one of the most expensive makeup brands out there so I was excited to hear that they were being sold at a discount.

Check out my video haul!


While I was at TJ Maxx, I saw this cute box of tights by Betsey Johnson.  You got 3 pairs of funky tights (full tight with foot) for $16.99, good deal!  I'm obsessed with wearing tights in the winter so these were perfect.
















I also was excited to see that they were selling Essie Nailpolishes for $3.99 each.  This is a really great brand and they had lots of colors.  I picked out 3 - a nude for work, a bright pink for fun, and a red for the holidays.








Now onto the good stuff!  They sold this super cute NARS lipgloss and blush set for $29.99.  It came with the super popular Deep Throat blush.  This is supposed to be like Orgasm blush but for those of us who are a little more tan.  Striptease is a nude colored gloss...a very pale, beigy pink.



Here I am wearing the lipgloss and blush.  Love the blush but the lipgloss is a little too ashy for me.  It probably needs to be paired with either a lipstick or liner to warm it up.






Lastly, I heard really good things about this body oil set from a Temptalia review.  This is a mini set and it makes a great gift.  I'm saving these for summer.  The oils smell like delicious coconuts and the shimmer side would look great on tan legs.



That's it for now!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Are you F-in' serious? That is sooo awesome. Now you're going to totally make me want to visit my TJ Maxx. What a great buy. Seriously, Ren. Lip gloss retails for $24 and blush retails for $25. That's such a steal. The body glows are $59 for the full sizes. Those tiny ones would still be pretty pricey. LORD!!! AHHH!!!

How much was the body oil set? I use the shimmer one all the time and it is WILDLY expensive at retail. I love it because it moisturizes without leaving any greasy feeling behind and the pretty bronze shimmer makes your skin look absolutely flawless!!

You guys in the states are SO lucky! We don't have anything like that up here in Canada :( - except for Winners, but the selection sucks.

Girl!!!! After watching your video on YT I made my way to my local TJ and found one little treasure. It was a six-eyeshadow palette for $30.

As soon as I saw it, I new it was coming home with me. So basically I got 6 shadows for about $5 bucks each.

Such a steal! I'll definitely be back to check on a regular. :-)

So I went to my TJ Max two days ago and I scored NARS! I got a palette of 6 eyeshadows for $3.99! Yeah I said $3.99. It wasn't priced when I found it so I found a sales girl and she was clueless so she just made up a tag for it for $3.99. The colors are: Kilimanjaro I, Himalayas, Bohemian Gold II, Ondine, Surabaya II, & Night Flight.

I also got a lip gloss duo for $16.99 in Giza and Boogie Nights.

And the last NARS thing I got was two full sized bottles of the yummy oil like you did Ren for $19.99. Can you believe it!!! So for about $42.00 I got about $175 in product!

I am excited because there are my first NARS purchases. I can't afford them from Sephora!
