T.J.MAXX is TheBalm (Deal & Swatches)

I just had to share these amazing finds . I was at T.J.Maxx last week when I stumbled upon these sets by TheBalm. If you're familiar with this brand then you would know that they

make good cosmetics but that they tend to be on the pricier side. You can check out their products and prices on their website or at A blush or a bronzer would normally cost you about $19 so imagine the look on my face when I found a set of 3 for .....TANTADADAN.....$9.99.  That's 83% off!!! Ok enough talk, here are the pictures and swatches.

Hot Mama is a beautiful pinky-peach shadow/blush with a hint of gold shimmer in it. This reminds me of Milani Luminous Blush which a lot of people say is similar to NARS Orgasm.

 Bahama Mama is a matte bronzer that has no orange undertones.  I love this because it won't make you look like an Oompa Loompa.

Sexy Mama is a translucent powder perfect for setting your foundation. It has tiny, oil-absorbing spheres that remove shine

The second set I got is called "Fake It Don't Bake It". It includes 4 different TheBalm products and also cost $9.99.

Betty-Lou Manizer is an all-in-one bronzer, shimmer and eyeshadow.

Frat Boy is a smooth peachy-apricot  shadow/blush. This looks matte in the pan but when swatched you will notice a pearly sheen to it.

The Balm Shelter tinted lip gloss in Valley girl  with SPF 17. This is the only product in the set that did not impress me.
Baby Buki is a mini kabuki brush that comes in a plastic case. I really thought this was going to go straight to the trash but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this brush is soft and perfectly sized for my makeup bag.
