I found a little gem in TK MAXX...

Elizabeth Arden 
pure finish, mineral bronzing powder...

- Aside from the odd and very rare MAC purchase, I just do not buy high end makeup.
 I can't justify spending lots of money on something that I will wipe off my face after twelve hours or so.
Not when my drugstore favourites (Collection 2000 'Lasting perfection concealer' and Bourjois healthy Mix foundation) do the job perfectly for me and can all be purchased within a budget.
Something I have to be very vigilant with these days, living on a tight and strict budget for uni and all that.

Anyway, on another of many trips to TK Maxx I found myself looking at a rather expensive looking box.
A box that had a very familar red door on the front of it.
Within a nano second this particular box was in my basket and I was running to the till with it like the cat who got the cream.

Introducing my new 'high end' bronzer.
Ooh haven't I gone up in the world?

Elizabeth Arden
Pure finish, mineral bronzing powder.
RRP: £29.50 (cor blimey) TK Maxx price: £9.99 (that's more like it)

Firstly, I love the milling process of using this bronzer, turning the dial right after each use to dispense more product. Secondly, I love the colour pay off. I have the shade 'Deep' and as a self confessed tan-o-holic any dark bronze shade is a winner for me.

Having used my Bourjois chocolate box bronzer loyaly for the past six months loving everything it has to offer I have been so addicted to using this bronzer instead.
I feel a little ooh la la sitting the sturdy brown pot on my desk.
I use the product to contour my cheeks and add a subtle glow to my jawline and neck.

I do hope I find some more high end cosmetics in TK Maxx sometime soon
but until then, I can still join the 'high end' club ;)
Love, Holl
