Happy Monday! This past weekend I took my first solo road trip to visit a friend of mine, a couple hours away. We spent the weekend together talking about love, relationships, our hobbies, and of even fashion/beauty. She took me around her city and we stopped in a few places that I don’t usually go…Marshalls is one of those places.
What’s at Marshalls?
A lot of people in the beauty community have raved about some of the awesome beauty finds in Marshalls, like good quality cosmetic brushes and makeup. However, on my attempts at visiting the local store, I never found anything. So, it’s safe to say I don’t shop there. Upon visiting the Marhsalls in my friend’s hometown I hit the jackpot when it came to beauty products! I wish I had taken photos for you guys, but in my excitement I totally forgot.
At this Marshalls I found Anastasia Beverly Hill products ( face, cheek and lips), MAC, Clinique, Pixie, and Too Faced. Can you believe the ABH Riviera palette was only $24.99!? I almost felt cheated; then I remembered I purchased mine during Black Friday for $28, so that’s still not so bad.
Despite my boycott of Too Faced products (after releasing so many duds!) there is one product being currently sold that I’ve wanted, but wasn’t paying full price for. The Tutti Fruiti collection. Beauty gurus on YouTube have mixed feelings about it, as it’s cute and fun, but not worth the price as it’s not all that unique. Some have even said it reminds them of kid’s play makeup. Yikes! However, I purchased almost $100 worth of this collection for around $38. That’s something to blog about! There were eyes, face, and lip products from this line but I ultimately decided just to get eyeshadow and blush.

Sparkling Pineapple Eyeshadow Palette
This palette smells amazing; just like pineapples. I know a lot of people do not care for TF’s scented items, but I enjoy them. This palette retails for $34 on the website, but I purchased at Marshalls for only $14.99 I’ve used it a couple times and I like it a lot! The packaging is cute but also sturdy and a good size for travel. The shade range is enough to get varying looks, but not the most unique set of colors. I’ve been enjoying a lot of colors in this scheme as of late, so I don’t mind adding more olive greens and browns to my makeup collection.

Fruit Cocktail Blush Duos
These highlighter and blush duos are so cute! I don’t find the scent to be all that strong or appealing, but the product performs beautifully. Originally $30 each, I purchased two of these for only $5.99 each. Plumagranate and Cherry Bomb are the colors I chose.
So, what do you think? Do you shop at Marshalls and have found good deals like this?
