Amazing Deal Alert at Big Lots!!

The web has been buzzing recently with the arrival of Philosophy makeup products at Big Lots!! I know I've seen Philosophy at Sephora, Ulta, and high end department stores--so the fact that this high end brand is showing up in discount stores such as Big Lots (and I've seen body washes at TJMaxx!) is fantastic!! I was overwhelmed with excitement when my mom and I spotted the Philosophy products in the health/beauty section of the store.

Here's a little iphone picture I took of some of the display. It was nestled in between other beauty products.

Here's the products I got:

2 Lit from Within Cream Blushes in "look on the bright side" & "feel warm all over"- a bright, cool pink & a shimmery pinky/gold/coral that reminds me of a cream version of Nars Orgasm
1 Angel Kiss Lip Gloss in "pretty please 01"- a sheer pink
1 Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder in "amazing grace"--a pearly, baby pink powder highlighter
1 Divine Illumination ageless skin luminzer in "love at first light"- a creamy gold toned cream highlighter

 How satisfying is this image? Only $3.00 per item!!!

L-R "look on the bright side," "feel warm all over," "pretty please," "amazing grace," "love at first light"

I LOVE everything I got. I haven't used many cream blushes before--I always thought they were off limits for a person like me who has combination/oily skin. However, the finish these cream blushes leave is wonderful---they apply and blend nicely and dry to a powder consistency so my cheeks don't feel sticky or anything like that. The gloss only gives a touch of color but I think the texture is really lovely and would be great over lipsticks. I am in love with the highlighters!! This is my first pink toned highlighter and it is just so pretty. It adds such a radiant baby pink to glow to the skin! I like layering it over the "look on the bright side" cream blush--it literally gives the most lovely pink cheeks! "Love at first light" is also gorgeous. It blends effortlessly into the skin and gives you a natural glow. I absolutely love my powder highlighters (like theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer & Dior Amber Diamond) however I can see using this one during the daytime more because the cream texture looks a little more subtle on the cheeks.

Basically you NEED to get yourself over to Big Lots if you want an incredible deal on Philosophy products. There were some more items there that I didn't pick up myself such as liquid highlighter, eyeshadow palettes, tinted moisturizers, brushes, and bronzers. I think some people have even found more cream blush and lip gloss colors. The prices are so low for such lovely products I think my mom and I are probably going to go hunting for some more this week!

Word of warning though: look through everything carefully. Many of the items were opened and abused: people had stuck their fingers right into the cream blushes! I had to look at each item closely to make sure they weren't opened!

What do you think of Philosophy makeup products?! Are you going to make a trip to Big Lots?! Let me know what you've found there if you do!


  1. Definitely heading there after work! Thanks for the heads up


  2. I went after work and all they had were a few lip glosses, 1 shade of cream blushes and a pink highlight powder. Just as I was leaving the isle I found 1 blush/bronzer duo, so that's the only thing I got. I really like that gold highlighter you got. I may try another big lots to see if I have any luck


  3. That's great! My big lots didn't have a blush/ bronzed duo! How do you like it?

  4. I'm so jealous.. but now I'm gonna have to go check out my Big Lots.. thats soo cool.

  5. I'm on my way to Big Lots right now!
