TK Maxx Summer Haul

tk maxx summer haul
When it comes to TK Maxx in my opinion its 50/50 to what you will find in the shop, its either LOTS of treasures or makeup that has been opened and ruined or no recent stock "BOO!". On Friday I hit the jackpot as stock had recently been replenished and they were lots of fresh and unopened makeup. Every time I go the first part of the shop I go to is the beauty department to see if they are any premium names and bargains to be had.

One of the main reasons I love going to TK Maxx is the homeware department as you can find some unique products that aren't on the high-street and also some beautiful cushions too. The beauty and clothes department can be like marmite it depends what you like but if you love finding a bargain TK Maxx is defiantly with going too to see if you can find anything you like.

What I bought πŸ›’
Kids Clothes πŸŽ€
For my daughters I found 2 lovely items - first being a sparkly fox t-shirt for my youngest daughter and a fox/nature dress with fox pockets on it. Both of these look perfect for autumn and a very thick so will defiantly keep them warm and cosy.

Beauty πŸ’„
 Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette
RRP £35, I got for £12.99
This palette is an eyeshadow and an eyeliner palette and I am so excited to giving this a try!! I have high hopes for this as I just love my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette which I have nearly completed now because I just love the shades and the fact they are long lasting too. 

Too Faced 'Melted Metal' Lipsticks in Bunny and Jelly 
RRP £19 each I got for £4.99 each 
I got these both for £4.99 each which I couldn't resist and ended up buying 2. I love too faced makeup but it can be on the expensive side so I like to see if I can find it for cheaper and I am so glad I found it here. I am looking forward to using these both and updating you all how they go!! Look out on my Instagram for that.

Too Faced Selfie Powders | Review

Wait a moment..
let me take a selfie πŸ‘€

Hi Lovelies
Too Faced has been on my makeup wish list for along time now and you should of seen my face when I finally found this palette in TK Maxx!!! I have been going to TK Maxx on and off for a few years now and honestly finding anything that I want can be a bit of a task as the brands I want aren't there or worse it is there and its been opened and tested and smudged! ugh it can be a nightmare. 

Too Faced makeup is a beauty brand I have always wanted to try but something always got in the way, the main reason was finding it as I rather see stuff in person before I buy it. Another being it can be very pricy and I was waiting for a bargain like this. 
First Impressions
It was easy to spot when I was in TK Maxx, it was looking at me and saying "buy me please" and for £10 I thought it would be worth a try. 
I can see they have been a lot of detail and thought put into the box as it looks lovely and it has all the info you need about the product inside too.
The palette itself is very nice and has 3 shades of selfie powders with a mirror and info underneath it with all the details about each different selfie powder.

What are selfie powders?
I was wondering this myself until I actually read the box and I read these are filters in the real world rather than the filters that you can get in Instagram or snapchat for example. In the palette they have 3 shades and each gives a different effect.

Sunrise - This is a golden shade which is to 'brighten'

Totally Toasted - This is like a bronzer and is described as to add 'warmth'

Moon River - This looks like a lavender shade is described as 'cool'

How I use it
Now I am not sure if these are much difference between these and any other highlighter I have tried to be honest. They are used pretty much the same as a highlighter and I like to use them either on my cheek bones or on my nose or both. 

Final Thoughts
Even though this is beautifully packaged and the shades are gorgeous it is not the most pigmented highlighter I have tried and takes quite a lot of product to get a highlight I am used to. Even though it is not the most pigmented once built up it looks gorgeous  and my favourite out of the 3 shades is moon river as I love the purple shimmer it has. 

I am happy that I found this in TK Maxx as it is a product I use quite often even though its not quite as expected. The main thing is its easy build to get a more defined look as the powders feel silky on the skin and also they are long lasting. I am sold by this brand and I cant wait to try makeup from this brand, I have lot of their products on my wishlist.

Have you tried anything from Too Faced?
