Oh yes! A Philosophy cosmetics haul!

5/19/12

As most of you might've heard, Big Lots was selling some Philosophy products. Why? I have no idea! 
These products retail from 22-30$ a pop and Big Lots was selling for 3$ each! Brand new, still in original packaging and most were unharmed. I tried to control myself but ended up buying 3 different products that I had seen on blogs or was just intrigued to try out! 
I got a healthy cream blush in look on the bright side 03, the "grace" shimmering face powder, and the bronzer and blush duo in hugs and kisses.

So far I've tried the blush and the Grace powder. The healthy cream blush is not very strong pigmented but it does give a nice healthy pink glow and you can layer it on. I haven't worn it for an 8 hour day yet but it does last well for 3-4 hrs. Does anyone want a review on the blush product? The Grace powder is really nice, its quite pigmented so I'd only be using this product as a highlighter. The compact and packaging is beautiful though!

The philosophy products are also free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, sulfates, propylene glycol and peg.

Did you ladies get a chance to grab some of these items? Have you tried philosophy cosmetics before?

  3. $3?! What a deal! The swatches look like the colours look very natural - so pretty! I've actually never seen Philosophy makeup products before, only the bath and body products. Thanks for sharing! :)
