Over the August Bank Holiday weekend; i made a little visit to TK Maxx. I was hoping to get a planner (i'd seen someone post it on instagram) but i couldn't find it in my local store, i did however check out the beauty section and picked up a couple of things.
Ciate Triple Shot Mascara in Midnight Blue | £5.99
I heard this mentioned a few times and decided to pick it up, i didn't actually realise that this was a blue mascara until the first time i tried it - silly me, for getting too over excited - however, i've actually been wearing this quite a bit since i've bought it, it's really dark blue that it almost passes for black. It has quite a flexible brush and it really coats and seperates the lashes. So far, im rather enjoying this mascara.
Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperlight | £3.99
I've never heard of this brand before but i really like under eye brightening/illuminating style products and im severely lacking them in my collection so i decided to give it a try. I've only used it once or twice so far and it really does brighten up the undereye area which is exactly what i wanted. The only thing i'm not so sure about is that the formula is quite sticky and takes a little while to dry.
Wild About Beauty Eyeshadow Pencil Duo in Annie | £2.99
I definitely did not need another eyeshadow pencil especially one that is neutral, brown toned or slightly coppery but this is so pretty it just drew me in and i couldnt resist. Again, i've only used this one or twice so far but i'm really liking it - it's a really creamy and pigmented pencil. One side is a shimmery almost copper toned brown and the other is a dark matte brown, i'm assuming the matte brown would be used more as an eyeliner but i've mostly been using the shimmery side and smudging it out under the lower lash line.
I only picked up these three items but i could have easily picked up many more. TK Maxx isn't somewhere i shop often but i googled all these products and compared to their retail prices, i've actually saved quite a bit of money which is really good. I'm definitely going to make more of an effort to check out their beauty section more.
Have you got any beauty bargains recently?
