It’s always a good day when you find a $40 palette at TJ Maxx for $7. I had to part with my coins for this one.

Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek Palette in Tan/Deep by Stila. $39.99 at Ulta, Sephora, etc.

The Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek palette is formulated to suit your skin tone and comes in three categories, Fair, Medium, and Tan/Deep. Though my skin tone is warm light to medium, I don’t care and got tan/deep because not only is that the only one my TJ Maxx had but I love the tones. Honestly I’m not drawn to the ones in the fair or medium palettes anyway.

I think these would be ideal travel palettes as they are compact and contain all you’d need for a quick, easy, and cute eye look for both day and night. Also, I’m sure I’m going to be using this a ton for work as it’s very neutral yet perfect for just enough definition for the eyes.

Swatches of all the shadows and blushes from the Perfect Me, Perfect Hue palettes.

I was even more stoked when I saw the rave reviews online on Ulta and Sephora of the product. Of course when I saw Stila lipsticks, I had to get one too.

Color Balm Lipstick in Sadie by Stila. $22 at Stila Cosmetics, Ulta, etc.

This lipstick looks much peachier in person and is described as a “mid tone peachy coral” which is most definitely my cup of tea.

I really like the peachy look I got out of this palette and it paired perfectly with the lip. I know I do a ton of peachy looks but what can I say? They’re peachy.

I found these shades to work ideally together and they’re all super creamy and blendable.

Believe it or not I didn’t prime my lids. Funnily enough, the description on the product claims the shadows are so finely milled and pigmented that you don’t need primer. I’m pretty sure the shades would’ve been even more vibrant with primer but I’m totally not mad at how it came out.

I used the top left shade, a peach shade as my main crease color. I then I intensified it with the left blush color, a coral pink. I love this combo by the way, and never think that you can’t use blush or bronzer as eyeshadow. I highlighted my inner corner and browbone with the champagne color.

Lastly, I intensified the outer crease with the darker blush and brown shades and smoked out the lower lashline with those two shades. I love the lipstick’s shade but I wish it was a bit more opaque. It is labeled as a balm though so I get it. It’s perfect for summer as an easy thing to throw on and put in your purse.

Here are all the palettes in the Perfect Me, Perfect Hue collection side by side. The quality of the tan/deep palette is worth $40 so I’m so happy I found it. The only shade that was slightly patchy was tge darker blush but it is a blush, so totally not a big deal. Everything else was awesome. I wouldn’t mind scoring the medium palette at TJ Maxx.

Overall, I’m very pleased.

Have you found any steals lately at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s?

I’ve been inspired to go on the hunt for luxury makeup at these stores because of all the fun videos in YouTube where people luck out. I thought I’d try my luck and I’m glad I did.
