TJ Maxx Haul Part 1.

IMG_3228.jpg

Hello! Hope your Saturday has been amazing! Here is the detailed version of the post I put up on my Instagram. One of the places I love to shop for makeup is TJ Maxx. They always have a wide selection to choose from. I have found products from Smashbox, Nars, Vintage Cosmetics, MAC, Bare Minerals, Kat Von D, Covergirl, Revlon, as well as others. When you are purchasing makeup at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, it’s important to check the packaging to make sure no one has opened it and swatched them. The packaging isn’t always sealed like what you see in department or grocery stores. I have opened unsealed products before and they have clearly been messed with and have passed on purchasing them. In my opinion, there is to much risk in purchasing makeup that someone else has touched. You don’t know how clean the person’s hand were and it’s just not worth it. On the other hand, some unsealed products I’ve seen and purchased have been fine.

One thing I’ve noticed with the price tags at TJ Maxx and Marshalls is that the compare price they list is not always accurate. The retail price is sometime higher than what the tag says it is if you look it up on the product’s website (which means even bigger saving!). With haul 1 I spent $35.93 without tax and I came out with a total savings of $69.06. The breakdown is below.
