Hey, guys! Welcome back to Thrifty Thursday! Today, my thrifty find is makeup. I found this adorably packaged Stila Eyeshadow Trio in Neapolitan for $5.99 at TJ Maxx. Stila’s trios usually retail for around $28!! Finding designer makeup for less than 1/4 of it’s original price is so thrilling!
While it is definitely thrilling, it is certainly not easy. When designer makeup hits the shelves of bargain stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, it’s not there for very long. I check those shelves frequently (How convenient is it for me to live within 5 miles in either direction of a Marshall’s and a TJ Maxx??!), and I don’t come across desirable designer makeup choices every time. In fact, this was the only Stila eyeshadow trio available for purchase when I spotted it. Cue my beeline to the checkout line.
I was so happy when I removed the lid and unveiled the beautiful, subtly sparkly shadows inside (I was worried that the irresistible packaging was it’s only selling point.) This is a very versatile trio because you can create a smokey look for nighttime and a more muted look for day time. I chose an in-between look to show you. I have to say the dark chocolate shade is extremely pigmented, so you can go very dark without much effort. I had to consciously apply the dark color with a very light touch. The lighter colors have a good deal of pigment as well, but since they are neutral, they are pretty much foolproof against my skin tone.
What do you think? Is this $5.99 well-spent? I believe so- especially when you are addicted to buying new makeup!
That’s what’s up on this Thrifty Thursday. I hope you enjoyed the post and that you have some good luck thrifting over the long weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
