Mini TJ Maxx Haul!

Today I FINALLY got my butt to TJ Maxx! I have been wanting to go for weeks, but my schedule has been crazy hectic! But today was free and clear and I made sure I got over there. My main reason for stopping there...MUST FIND PACIFICA!

Some very pretty little birdies over at Makeup Talk had mentioned seeing Pacifica items at their local TJ Maxx stores. I was skeptical because I live in Michigan, nowhere fancy, and I doubted that I would be able to find it here. But I had to try!

Here is what I came home with!
 A! Absolute Make-up Cleansing Tissues, 60 Count - $4.99
Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Bronzing Body Butter - $3.99
Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter - $3.99
NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette from The Runway Collection, Jazz Night - $3.99

Let's start with the NYX Eyeshadow Palette. Let me tell you, I've been on a NYX kick for quite some time now, and I still haven't gotten enough! I was very happy to see this palette. They had another color palette with darker shades and pinks. I almost bought that one too - but I stopped myself. My train case is so overloaded! 
I took a look at Google to find out how much these are going for...and they are retailing for about $10 across the internet. I paid $3.99! 60% off is a great deal in my book!

Overall I feel the color payoff is GREAT! I am exciting to begin using this palette and I feel like I got a really great deal.

Next, I have what I went to TJ Maxx to look for...PACIFICA! I was really hoping to get one of these two products in my May ipsy bag, but I didn't. But that's OK! Because I have them now! If you have never heard of Pacifica, I highly recommend them! You can find a small sampling of their products in Target stores. Or you can just check your local TJ Maxx.

 On the left is the bronzing butter, the right is the luminizing butter.

Indoors with flash. I rubbed some on my arm - you can see the slight shimmer it gives.

I think for me, I am going to like the bronzing butter the best. It has gold flecks in it and gives your skin a tiny bit of color. The luminizing butter has silver shimmer in it. It is also gorgeous, and can I tell you they smell divine!
These very same butters retail on Pacifica's website for $7.00 each. I paid $3.99 each, which is a 40% savings!

I picked up the Absolute Makeup Removing Tissues on a whim. I recognized the brand from May's Glossybox (check out my review HERE) and decided to buy them, even though I was not a fan of the perfume stick I received. I still wanted to try the brand! Plus there are 60 towelettes, and for $4.99 that is a great price. I tried them out and I really like them! They are soft and very moist so they take makeup off easily. They also smell great, very citrusy! 
Looking online, these retail for about $6.99 online. Not a huge savings but still a good price in my book!

Make sure you check your local TJ Maxx for great buys on your favorite products!

What deals have you found lately??
