Kohl’s has name brand/high-end makeup in their stores but their discounts and Kohl’s cash doesn’t work for it. In other words, their makeup is almost never on sale. Brands like Pur Minerals, Bliss, Lorac, Cargo, The Balm, and more can be found there but I always wait for a deal. So, when I got a 10% off any and all prestige brand card, I knew it was time to shop. Well, that and having a rough week and work and craving some retail therapy. Luckily, I hit up the store at a slow time, got a great sales rep, and was hooked up with a ton of free perk items. Let’s see what I brought home to play with!
Prestige Brand Sale
Cargo Eye Contour Palette #1
Could this palette be any more beautiful? You get a matte and shimmer base/highlight shade and light, medium and dark cool and warm tone shadows. I think this is the perfect palette for on the go looks and I already know I love Cargo’s eyeshadow formula!
The Balm’s Meet Matt Trimony Palette
This palette has been raved about on YouTube for a while now and I held off getting it because I didn’t think it was anything I had to have in my collection…that is until a sale came along. The colors in this palette really are beautiful and I am glad to have it in my collection now.
Time Balm Concealer
I have heard really amazing things about this concealer, and while I needed another like a hole in the head, I went for it. I got a peachier shade for concealing and brightening and a darker one for spot correcting and general under eye concealing. I’ll be sure to let you know how they perform when I try them out.
PurMinerals Secret Crush Palette
First, the brush in this palette is garbage but the colors were too pretty to pass up! This palette is a mix of Urban Decay’s Naked 1 and 3 palettes and I’m in love! I cannot wait to slather my eyes in these buttery soft shadows.
Lorac Pro (Original)
I have been dying to try their shadows for a while now and I have heard so many great things about the Pro palettes. I looked at the Pro 2 and Pro 3 in Kohl’s and realized that the original was the one I wanted. The 2 was too cool tones and the 3 was pretty but so neutral and I have enough of those. I’m looking forward to seeing what looks I can come up with with this palette!
Real techniques isn’t a prestige brand but they were 20% off so I grabbed their cleaning mat and another setting brush (I love this brush) while I was there. The full-size cleaner was a gift with purchase when you bought the cleaning tool, which was awesome! I have high hopes for them both.
Free Items I Snagged
The sales associate I was working with was absolutely amazing and gave me a free product for each item I purchased! The free stuff is all pretty awesome, too. I got some Bliss lotion that is supposed to tighten your arms, a mineral primer from Bliss, a mascara by PurMinerals, an Ahava shower gel, a Lorac eyeliner, a Cargo blush, and a single shadow from The Balm. Not a bad free haul!
Did you take advantage of the Kohl’s Prestige Brand sale? Have you tried any of these products? If so I’d love to hear about it!
