~Haul+Review+ FOTDs~ Philosophy Makeup at Big Lots.....

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Last week, I went into one of my local ( as in 35 miles away, haha) Big Lots stores and finally ran up on the most talked about Philosophy makeup. Well, I didn't "run" up on it. I went down every cosmetic aisle twice until I asked an associate where it was. I had read that it was on endcap but in this store, it was on "side cap"...on the SIDE of the end cap. I walked past it twice.:/

I didn't buy all the pieces. Some of the makeup is just a bit too fair for my taste. I got five pieces, one of them by mistake! lol!

I got both of The Supernatural Windows To The Soul Eye Shadow Palettes in Box of Truffles ( the neutrals) and Plum Delicious.
I got two blushes: The Supernatural You Make Me Blush in Healthy/Happy and The Supernatural Lit From With In Healthy Cream Blush in Feel Warm All Over.

AMAZING Blushes!!!!The Healthy/Happy is a beautiful duo ( very NARS Orgasm/Laguna ish). The texture is soft and they go on bright but not heavily pigmented. Just the right bit of flush and bronze in one. Plus, the mirror is a magnifying mirror. I've never had a blush with a magnifying mirror.If  you MUST get one thing from Big Lots Philosophy sale...THIS IS IT!! I'm going back this weekend to TRY to stock up.

Feel Warm all over is great for layering under Happy...they are very similar in color.

I bought Art of Blushing in Pink Dreams by mistake. I thought I was buying something else, I was in a rush, I was!!!

I swatched it with my finger. Nope, too light for my taste...
Here is a look I created with the Box of Truffles palette. Great texture, medium pigmentation and they feel very luxurious. I can see these being sold in the $20+ range. They would be worth the price. Even the small duo brush that came with it is of good quality.

I LOVE the Plum Delicious palette too...Same quality, very consistent in quality from palette to palette. Plum Delicious is a beautiful, simple palette of purples that create a gorgeous smoky purple eye. All I have to say, Philosophy sold at Big Lots IS the best buy so far this year for me!!!

Have you gotten of these or other pieces of Philosophy at your Big Lots? What if ( I die just thinking about it) if any of the Philosophy skin or body products showed up there!??!? They would get CLEANED OUT!! LOL!

You are so lucky to get the Box of Truffles since they was cleaned out at all three Big Lots I frequent. I managed to snag of the Plums shadows that wasn't tampered with by filthy hands. I got two kinds of illuminizers and a couple of things. I might sell the rest on eBay.
