Highs and Lows of Kohl's Beauty Event on November 14!!



 (Source: Kohl's email)

When I checked my emails this morning, I got a email from Kohl's alerting me that they are holding a Beauty Event for November 14 (TODAY!!!), so I finished my breakfast check out my local Kohl's here in Lynchburg, VA!! I know that Kohl's has recently revamped their beauty department to include more Prestige Beauty names such as Lorac, Cargo, Bliss, and Pur Minerals! Also I will list the HIGHS and LOWS towards the end of my blog post!!

I decided to try a few items from the The Balm Comestics display including their blushes, makeup primer, tinted moisturizer and eye makeup remover balm!!

I love this color of blush in "Lace" which I tried on my clean, no makeup face and would love to get it in a future purchase in December!! Of course, I know this bold pink will be "toned down" by either foundation or tinted moisturizer, then by slight neutral pink/coral blush, and finally with a bronzer or finishing powder!

 I tried a few of their tinted moisturizers on my hand with one of them being suitable for the summer but not during the Fall/Spring/Winter months when my skin is lighter! There eye makeup remover balm was really good in removing the stains from my face!! So far, I am pleased in trying out a few of The Balm cosmetics at Kohl's!

I decided to try out Pur Minerals makeup foundation in two of their shades to find a match which was Golden Dark for my face!! I will try out their compact later for the summer!! I also tried out a few of their shimmer eye shadows and lipsticks to see how there colors would look on me as well which a few shades to remember next time!

Of course, being a HUGE Cinderella Fan esp seeing the live-action finally on Blueray, I want to own this palette for Christmas!! This is exclusive to Kohl's for Pur Minerals. I decided to check out few stocking stuffers that my Mom may like to have under the Christmas tree, since she rarely get presents!! I took the few inspiration cards for next time and left Kohl's!

 Ok, here are my HIGHS from Kohl's Beauty Department event:

1) I was able to find the RIGHT foundation for me since my face is soooo picky which is Pur Minerals in "Golden Dark" and seems that this brand caters to diverse skin tones as well!

2) I love the beauty inspiration cards which gave me ideas in my makeup routine!

3) The lady at the Jewelry Deptartment was really helpful to me although she couldn't get a person for the Beauty Department for Today's Event!

4) And I wanted the Disney's Cinderella Makeup Palette set which I save up and get in December!!

And now for the LOWS from Kohl's Beauty Department event:

1) After seeing the email for this event about "demos, consultations, and samples" for November 14 and arrived at 10 am EST except for a little table mentioning the "Event" there was NO ONE to help me or several women customers at the Lynchburg Kohl's!! Of course, except for the very nice lady at the jewelry display, no one helped us and we tried to figure out stuff like foundations or struggle how to use a Holiday palette by ourselves!

At having alot HIGHS out weigh the disappointing LOWS of this Kohl's Beauty Department Event for November 14!! But be sure to check out your local Kohl's store or online for more Beauty inspiration for the Holidays! I know I will! :)

Until next time...

    1. Minus no "Consultants and demos as described in the Kohl's email" I learned and tried out several brands including a new blush and foundation in the future! Plus, several ladies and I helped each other out about makeup suggestions!

  2. It's great that you were able to make it to the event since it's always better to be able to try beauty products in person. Such a bummer that they didn't have any consultants on hand to help the customers though.

    1. I know that was a real let down to say one thing on social media and doesn't happen in person at the store event :(

  4. Great review on all these items! I'm wondering if my local Kohl's will host this event too - I live in a fairly small town as it is :/ In any case, I'm really interested in the Cinderella palette, I think it's darling <3
