Bronze me up!

As I was strolling through my TJ Maxx (next door to my sucky dollar tree, haha) I eyed a Lancome eyehadow quad, since this specific TJ Maxx seals everything in locked plastic cases I didn't know exactly what colors I would get, whateverr, I picked it up up anyhow, since it was $13, I couldn't turn it away! So take a look at the palette, it's quite gorgeous!

Here is a terrible attempt at swatches (I've been trying forever...just can't get it right, haha)!

I've used this palette at least 3 times now and I truly love it, it's very smooth but very slightly chalky, as long as you use a good base, it'll do you just fine!

Sadly it was the only palette in the store and it was my first and, so far, my last time to see a Lancome palette at TJ Maxx.

----------------------------------------------------
Totally off topic, I had my nephew over on Saturday and boy oh boy, he sure can be a handful. I remember G telling Jr to say "Tia, cookie" over and over and over, G knows I am very strict about what I feed children and he knows I wouldn't give Jr cookies late night. So, Tia Janine gave in and gave him not one cookie, but three since he asked with his cute eyes and sweet little voice. Here we are!

Molly Tamale said...

Pretty palette. You always find good things at tj maxx or places like that.

--Aww how cute! Boys are a hand full though.

BTW you looked a lil tanner. Or is it just bronzer? I like it though =).

TKOmulatta said...

Lucky you! I never see great cosmetics at my TJ Maxx....
and those swatches are great?!
your nephew is sooo cute and I was wondering the same thing as Molly above me, do you have tanner on, if so it looks great.

Hollywood said...

OMG you found something amazing I love this quad!!!! I don't understand why it was only $13 since these colors are everyone's colors lol. You look super tanned (that's hot) is it natural or artificial lol?

kiss babe!

Cheryl♥ said...

Wow! You found that quad?! The swatches look GORGEOUS! You did a great job :)

Young, Fabulous, and Pregnant said...

Gorgeous! I'm so jealous. Whenever I go to a TJ Maxx I never find goodies. :(

Jony said...

Gorgeous quad, I love the colors!
And your nephew is cute.

kimber doll said...

Love your tan!!

Kate Gene said...

GASP! I can't believe the price on that quad! That's GORGEOUS. I must have it now! Seriously, that's just the type of quad I have been looking for. Love it!

Aww, I'd give your nephew a whole box of cookies! LOL! I'm a sucker for a cute little face!

P. S. Your tan looks fabulous!

ahh i LOVE TJ Maxx and Marshalls, I find the best things there for sooo cheap. I'm sure the ones in cali and other big cities are nicer, but I still manage to find great things at mine!

Miss Kimberly said...

Hi there! What a gorgeous palette! You scored on that one. I have never seen any Lancome palettes at my local TJ Maxx, but this makes me want to go check! (:

Tammy said...

That palette is gorgeous!! I think you did a great job swatching.

Kids are sneaky...they give those puppy eyes & expect to always get their way..lol Your nephew is such a cutie!

ashlina said...

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

@ Jen - Awww, thank you, he's my favorite (but don't tell my other nephew and two nieces...)! The dark shimmery color is what I'm most excited about :D

@ Crystal - Thank you!! He lights up my world :)

@ Molly Tamale - Thanks, I'm lucky to have TJ and Marshalls so close, I end up in there much more often then I'd like *_*

Geez, boys really are a handful, I feel so bad for the mom, she's always tired!

Honey, it's all bronzer!! MAC MSF in Comfort :D

@ TKOmulatta - Awww, I'm sorry babe!! That really sucks =/

Thank you!!! I've done so many swatches in the past and I've just deleted the pictures, haha.

Honey, it's all bronzer!! MAC MSF in Comfort :D I was playing with makeup since my bff was there too and I put on way more bronzer than I usually do...I didn't intend on it lookin decent, HA

@ Hollywood - Thank you!!!! I googled the quad, it's from Summer 2009, wow, that was 2 yrs ago! Glad I didn't pay $44 for it!

Honey, it's all bronzer!! MAC MSF in Comfort :D
