Philosophy Cosmetics at Big Lots: The Master List

For those who missed my original post, Big Lots currently has LOTS of Philosophy color cosmetics for sale, and everything is priced at $3 each. This is an insane deal and, thanks to YOU, I'm able to compile lots of helpful information and a listing of everything that's been spotted to date.

UPDATE 5/14: As promised, I'm adding some pics from readers to this post, followed by pics and swatches of the products I have personally purchased. I also want to thank everyone who sent pics in that I did NOT use in this post. I received so many wonderful pics over the past week that I simply couldn't run them all, so I want to apologize if you took the time to send pics and you don't see them here. I'm so sorry about that!

Also, I'm afraid I didn't have time to update the master list (I'm working on six posts right now at the same time and there are just not enough minutes in the day for me to do everything I want to do). So I encourage you to read the comments on this post for items that you don't see on the master list. Eventually (this week, I hope) I will update the list. Sorry!

First up, SOME of you have spotted a dedicated end-cap for these products, such as the one that reader Sophia spotted at her Big Lots:

Sophia was also nice enough to share some pics of the items she purchased:

OTHER readers, such as myself, have spotted the Philosophy products in the regular makeup aisle. My pal Kimberly of Libby's Pink Vanity was nice enough to share this pic from her local Big Lots:

Next up, reader Staci was kind enough to share some pics of all the products she purchased:

And finally, here are the products I have personally purchased:


If I were to consider one product in this bunch a DEFINITE must-have, it's the Windows To The Soul Palette in Box of Truffles:


Three mattes and one shimmer!


Many years ago, I owned a Philosophy Eyeshadow Single that was a matte medium-toned brown. I used that thing until I hit pan, and was SO devastated when I ran out. Philosphy mattes are finely milled and smooth as silk, and the mattes in this palette are no exception. The second shade is VERY close to the single I owned back in the day, and I'm THRILLED about that:


Swatched with no primer:

 

I wish I could say that the Color of Grace duo in Heaven/Earth was a must-have too, but for me it's just a little "meh":



  
The colors are super basic, which is nice, but they're powdery and pretty sheer as well (swatched without primer):


I don't know how I feel about the Supernatural Lit From Within cream blush in Look On The Bright Side yet:



I love that it doesn't contain any shimmer, and I also love the blue-toned bubblegum pink color, but this blush is super creamy, which scares me. I don't know if it will have any staying power, and I also think it goes on pretty sheer. The swatch below was taken after three applications:


Now here's a definitely "skip", in my opinion:


The Color of Grace retractable mini kabuki:




First of all, the brush has a faux leather finish, which I foresee becoming a little icky after a few washings. Also, the bristles are rough, and after opening the brush twice, it shed...a lot. I'd skip this one.


ONE MORE THING: I've also heard from a handful of readers who have spotted CK Cosmetics at Big Lots recently. Again, these have been found outside of the regular beauty aisle, so be sure to check near the registers, etc. because you never know what you'll find...and where! Victoria on Facebook spotted a CK baby blue eyeshadow called Wedgewood for $5.50 and reader Tracy spotted Infinite Balance Cream to Powder Foundation for $8.

THE LIST OF PHILOSOPHY PRODUCTS SPOTTED SO FAR ($3 EACH): 

Color of Grace Amazing Grace Coloring Book
Color Of Grace Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder
Color Of Grace Angel Kiss Lip Gloss Trio
Color of Grace Art of Blushing in Pink Dreams
Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow Duo in Heaven/Earth
Color Of Grace Grace For Lips, Cheeks and Eyes

If you have spotted anything NOT listed above at your Big Lots, please leave a comment below and I'll try to update this list every chance I get. Thank you!

And a HUGE thanks to readers CaleyMarie, Meagan, Snow, jennifersaoirse, D.A., Victoria, Tracy, SAMV, Becky, Simplysara, Jacquie, C Jay, CamillaB, Andra, lone_binky, Lindsey, 20somethingsaver and K for contributing info used in this post.

  6. I went yesterday to Big Lots because last week I did not find these products and for my surprise, they were there! And you are right, they were at an end cap, not at the cosmetics aile. I went crazy, I bought one of ea product and I think I am going back today to buy another foundation, I tried it on this morning and it feels amazin! and the color SAND matches my skin so good. There was another color on Foundation, something much darker but I can't remember at this time :(

    Thank you for helping us save so much $

  7. I took a look at my local Big Lots on Sunday and didn't find anything. I Calvin Klein eyeshadow which I passed on. I will definately look again probably Friday now that I know they have been coming out gradually around the country. Thanks for this post G and the masterlist!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I work a Big Lots, and yes we have some of those, actually my jaw drop when I saw them last nite, and I did some shopping (during my working hours ooops!!!) and also I get a %20 off that was a great great deal :) I havent seen any CK products, but I will keep my eyes open for those :)

  12. I went to the Asheboro NC Big Lots today and found:
    supernatural you make me blush (mineral blush duo) in shade 01 (Hugs and Kisses)
    It's a light tan and a pale pink. I'm fair skinned and it seems like it will work as a blush and bronzer for me as opposed to two blush colors.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I saw the Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow at the Rohnert Park, CA Big Lots, and one CK foundation... A couple of other random Philosophy cosmetics that looked like they'd been opened and picked at already.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I went to my Big Lots today and found Philosophy!! It was hanging with the makeup! I got lip gloss and heavenly light pink illuminator! great find! thanks for the info!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I found:
    the supernatural lit from within cream blush in 'look on the bright side'
    the color of grace heavenly light pink illuminator
    in addition to a few listed here.
    really want to go to another BL to see what else I can snag!

  16. I went to my Big Lots today and found Philosophy! I got the lip gloss trio and light pink skin illuminator! Thanks for the tip! What a great find! It was hanging with the rest of the makeup!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Only one guess on where I'm going tomorrow!!! I'll try to snag some photos too, G. I have never tried philosophy makeup before. But that's about to change!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I went to the La Cañada Big Lots last Friday following your tip and got the supernatural coloring book, two shades of cream blush (warm all over & look on the bright side) and the pink illuminator. They also had the art of blushing kit. I think I might go by the South Pasadena BL tomorow after work and see what they have. (super discounted stuff doesn't count on a no-buy, right?)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Does the BL in South Pasadena have anything? The BL in Downtown LA still has quite a few things, although they are going fast. They also have CK eye shadows and foundations. I'm looking to get the following items:

      Color of Grace Amazing Grace Coloring Book
      Divine Illumination Love At First Light Ageless Skin Luminizer
      Supernatural Superbeautiful Superhealthy Hybrid Makeup SPF20 in Sand
      Supernatural Windows To The Soul in Box of Truffles
      Supernatural Instant Sunshine Mineral Bronzer

      If you saw any of these please let me know. If anyone is interested in doing any swaps with me for these items my local BL has all the items on the master list except for the ones I posted above and the supernatural retractable brush.

    2. I didn't get a chance to go to the Pasadena store last week, but after this post I will today! That eyeshadow palette looks amazing. (one can never have too many high quality neutrals right?)

      Delete
    3. So I did go by the South Pasadena BL today and they have a very well stocked display of these items
      Color of Grace Amazing Grace Coloring Book
      Color Of Grace Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder
      Color Of Grace Angel Kiss Lip Gloss Trio
      Color of Grace Art of Blushing in Pink Dreams
      Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow Duo in Heaven/Earth
      Divine Illumination Love At First Light Ageless Skin Luminizer
      Supernatural Coloring Book
      Supernatural Instant Sunshine Mineral Bronzer
      Supernatural Retractable Blush Brush (kabuki)
      Supernatural Superbeautiful Superhealthy Hybrid Makeup SPF20 in Sand
      Supernatural Windows To The Soul in Plum Delicious and Box of Truffles

      They have plenty of both eyeshadow quads, and lots of the lip glosses. This store never seems as busy as the other stores in LA, so if you can get there in a few days you'll probably have your pick. Good Luck!

      Delete
    4. I went by the South Pasadena Big Lots (1401 Huntington Drive, So Pas) and they have a very well stocked display of Philosophy Cosmetics. The only thing that seemed low was the super beautiful hybrid makeup. They had loads of both of the eyeshadow quads and lots of the ageless skin luminizer, instant sunshine bronzers and I'm pretty sure quite a few of the supernatural coloring books. I picked up one of each quad, a grace shimmering face powder, a divine illumination luminizer and the hybrid makeup which is just a touch light for me right now ( I got a lot of sun over a three day weekend lately. ) This Big Lots seems to be one of the least busy in LA, so if you can make it by in the next few days I think you'll have your pick. Good luck, beautiful!

    5. I went back to the downtown BL on mothers day and got everything I was missing except for the foundation and bronzer. It's fine, the foundation color isnt the right shade and I don't care much for bronzing. But thanks for replying :). I went back yesterday for an unrelated purchase and saw they had mostly the color of grace items left and 1 plum delicious eyeshadow quad left. Doesn't look like they will be restocking. As for the CK, there are tons of eyeshadows (2 different shades I think) and foundations, but, the foundations have gone bad. I took 1 out and it was rancid :(. I really wanted to try it.

      Delete
    6. I went back to the downtown BL on mother's day and found that they had restocked so I was able to get more of the things I was missing. They still didn't have the foundation in my shade or the bronzer. It's probably a good thing because I don't bronze but I wanted it anyways lol. Thanks for replying.

      Just in case, the BL in downtown LA still has the color of grace items left and 1 plum delicious eyeshadow quad (last I saw). It didn't appear that they were going to be restocking. There is still plenty of CK eyeshadows and rancid foundations (booooo)

      Note: my email is lalashi485@gmail.com I misspelled it on my last post.

  20. Thanks for compiling a list for us, G. I just visited my local Big Lots in Colorado Springs, CO. I picked up the following: Color of Grace Amazing Grace Coloring Book; Color Of Grace Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder; Color Of Grace Angel Kiss Lip Gloss Trio; Color of Grace Art of Blushing in Pink Dreams; Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow Duo in Heaven/Earth; Color Of Grace Grace For Lips, Cheeks and Eyes; Supernatural Coloring Book; Supernatural Window to the Soul Eyeshadow Palette; Supernatural You Make Me Blush Mineral Blush Duo ( in Healthy and Happy); Supernatural Lit From Within Healthy Cream Blush (in Look on the Bright Side); and Supernatural Retractable Blush Brush (kabuki). I also found Supernatural Retractable Face Brush (which isn't on the list). For those who are looking for the Philosophy cosmetics in Colorado Springs (on North Academy), the display is located at the front of the store (near the checkout area). I'm not sure why but they didn't put them in the Beauty and Cosmetic section. Also spotted CK eyeshadow for $5.50. Happy Hunting!

  21. First time posting and I have to say I LOVE your blog!

    I went to Big Lots today and picked up six of the products: Amazing grace shimmering face powder, art of blushing in pink dreams, eye shadow palette in plum delicious, two healthy cream blushes in feel warm all over and bare your soul, angel kiss lip gloss in pretty please and eye lighting shadow duo in heaven/earth. They also had a skin illuminator in a tube, an anti aging cream illuminator, a blush bronzer duo, a concealer in extra light, a lip gloss in a tube, and a bronzer in a box. They were packed full of products and were down the cosmetic isle. I did see the CK makeup but only in the foundation. They also had Revlon scented nail polish two pack for $2, some ELF and WnW kits but I didn't look at them closely. Also, Cotton balls and q-tips are BOGO half off and bath poof three pack for $2! Walked out spending $50 lol

  24. Sigh. I went to the other Big Lots in our area today, and no luck there either. The employees had no idea what I was even talking about. :(

  25. I'm from Orange County, CA. My area has been picked absolutely clean! I went to 3 Big Lots & could only find the lipgloss, the brushes (they seem kind of scratchy), and the shimmering face powder.

  28. I went to my local Big Lots in Banning, CA and nearly everything on the master list was there. I took a pic to share, but I kept blurring it, so I gave up. But I have pics of the items I did buy, which was pretty much everything they had for sale at my store. I've only used one item so far, Philosophy Divine Illumination Love at First Light Ageless Skin Luminizer, and I love it. It gives me a healthy light glow. I have 4 pics of my haul on my Flickr if anyone wants to see them and 1 blurry pic from the store. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tinajan/sets/72157629669551724/

  30. North Dakota:

    Philosophy makeup was located in the Fargo Big Lots on an end display in the food section. When I went yesterday there were still a few items left, including eye duos, lip gloss singles, and blushers. I asked the sales lady if they were planning to put out more and she said they had already put out 6 cases this week and were out. She was unsure if they were going to get more in. I will check back soon. Also, make sure to open the products you plan on buying to check for damage. One of the shadow duos I bought was totally crumbled when I got it home. Sad. Also I bought muliples of some items and would be interested in doing a swap.
    Grace - Angel Kiss Single Gloss
    Grace - Art of Blushing Pink Dreams
    Grace shadow duo heaven/earth
    Grace - Liquid iluminator (pink)

    Looking for:
    Plum shadow trio
    Brown shadow duo
    Grace colorbook ( can swap a supernatural colorbook)
    concealer - light
    Grace shimmering face powder
    any of the brushes

  31. I just did a post on my blog about the products I bought. I have swatched everything I got and LOVE them.I am also going to be doing a giveaway of some of the goodies I am picking up!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I forgot to add that my Big Lots had some Calvin Klein Foundations that were $8 a piece too and they looked great quality just not my shade :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. The South Austin Big Lots had pretty much the same at stuff listed at "TheTalkingDoorKnob" listed except no concealer and only one of the plum trio (which I snagged). There also were a lot of the supernatural coloring book which is AWESOME and these cream blushers in two shades! Lots of stuff was available, it was an end cap on the makeup section. The checker said these were popular and the endcap said "Philosophy at Big Lots". There were a few bured CK eyeshadows for $5.50 each. Wedgewood, Pure Bliss (I think or Pink Bliss) and some shade that reminded me of "night" were there. Only 3 in total. You can also sign up for a rewards card to get discount coupons. I may go back for those coloring books, they would be perfect stocking stuffers. The biglots sticker peels easily and everything comes with the nice packaging.

    But yes, make sure you check since I did see a few things with a couple of test swipes!

    Thanks, what a perfect mother's day gift for me!

    1. I just found them at the Big Lots on Siegen Lane in Baton Rouge on Friday (5/11). The store had nearly all the products listed. They are hanging on a peg wall by the other make up; some are also in the makeup clearance bin. There is not a large amount on hand, but still several of each item -- 4-6 of each item, I would estimate.

  35. I did a second check of Big Lots in Utica NY and not a single thing. I get so frustrated when my area getscshut out of the good stuff like this.

  36. I went to my local Big Lots in Charlotte, NC and they do have Philosophy!!! It's right in the Health & Beauty section. It's the first section/end-cap of the first H&B aisle. It was on my left side so I was looking away from it. I had passed it the first time around, haha.

    I really wanted to try the Supernatural Superbeautiful Superhealthy Hybrid Makeup SPF20, but there was only one box left in the wrong shade: Extra Rich. :(

    I bought:
    Color Of Grace Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder
    Color of Grace Art of Blushing in Pink Dreams
    Color Of Grace Grace For Lips, Cheeks and Eyes
    Supernatural Coloring Book
    Supernatural Lit From Within Healthy Cream Blush in Bare Your Soul, FEEL WARM ALL OVER, LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
    Supernatural Windows To The Soul in Plum Delicious
    You Make Me Blush Mineral Blush Duo in HUGS AND KISSES


    These were available too:
    Color Of Grace Angel Kiss Lip Gloss Trio
    Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow Duo in Heaven/Earth
    Philosophy Heavenly Light Pink Illuminator (I skipped on this one, but wondering if I should have gotten it. Lol)


    But what a great haul! Thanks for the heads up!! ^^

  37. I checked back tonight and they had the same items in stock. I am having a friend check the Big Lots in Bismarck this weekend and I will report back to you midwest ladies. On a different note, I was bargin hunting at CVS and spotted a sally hanson shadow trio in the markdown section, since it was not marked I had the sales girl price check it...and apparently it wasnt "on file" meaning they didnt have a price for it, so she was like, "how does .99 cents sound"? UMMMMMM SURE!!!! I guess it pays to ask!

  38. Thank you thank you thank you somuch for this post. I took a long lunch yesterday to run to Big Lots 30 minutes away. SCORE!! I went back tonight to buy more as a thank you gift for a friend. The first run was all for me.(+ I was so excited I couldn't think straight) I'm loving the hybrid foundation. Who am I kidding, I'm loving it all! The lip gloss is AMAZING and SO cute as a little gift. As a bonus while I was there - I found a stash of OPI and Essie polishes for 3.50 & 4.00! I bought 8 Essies and 6 OPI's.

  41. I live in Houston. I'm still trying to find a big lots that have the rest of the Philosophy collection. I went to the only store near me today Gessner & Westheimer. I was only able to find one cream blush and one shadow duo. The lip color in the compact all were opened and tried. I saw a 3 color blush compact but, all three were touched and swatched. I also saw the face illuminator but, I don't need that I have oily skin. So there were only 5 items there total. I didn't see any sally hansen or CK. I did score on the revlon nail polishes. $2 for a set. So I couldn't pass that up. Oh, well.

  42. The Big Lots at 44th & Wadsworth in Denver, Colorado still has all of these in stock:

    - The Supernatural Lit From Within Healthy Cream Blush in “Feel Warm All Over” (this particular shade isn't on your master list)
    - The Color of Grace Heavenly Light Pink Illuminator (I don't see this on your master list)
    - The Color of Grace Art of Blushing blush palette in “Pink Dreams”
    - The Color of Grace Angel Kiss Lip Gloss in “Pretty Please” (this particular shade isn't on your master list either)

  46. And I found several colors of CK eyeshadows, a pink, blue, white, and the one I picked up - Moonstone - which is kind of a champagne color. There was also a CK concealer and 'splendid strength nail fortifier', all for $5.50!!!

  48. my Big Lots is just a hot mess. I don't like the "new" layout. I miss the days of digging and digging for makeup deals:( Anyways, didn't have to much luck. They had a end cap, but it was hanging right when you walk in the door. All that was left was the cream blush, lip gloss and the tinted face cream. Did find a open package of the 4 eyeshadow in plum and a couple of the duo's in the makeup aisle decided to pass:(

    ReplyDelete
  49. Today I saw all of those items PLUS *single* lip gloss, which I purchased. It's The Color of Grace, Angel Kiss Lip Gloss in Pretty Please (the only color I saw available)

    ReplyDelete
  50. OH! AND! You make Me Blush Duo also comes in Hugs & Kisses. I don't think I saw that combo listed, along with The Color of Grace Heavenly Light, Pink Illuminator.

  55. I got both of the eyeshadow quads (in Plumtastic and Box of Truffles). They are great. One note, if your store is out of some things (mine pretty much only has the single lip glosses and illuminating cream left), eBay is overflowing with them. Some people are really trying to exploit it (listing it at $15!), but a few are pricing them honestly. I think even if I had to pay $5 or $7 for the coloring book, it would still be worth it. I have the supernatural one and LOVE it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Went to big lots today and found plenty of philosophy products in the beauty section. I picked up cream blush, two eyeshadow quads and grace palette. Also I picked up ck liquid foundation ($8). Thanks a lot G. You are the best!!!!

  57. I feel like the blush duos are different at every store. When I went to three stores, one of them had Healthy/Happy and ALL of them were. Another was Hugs/Kisses and ALL of them were. Last one was Sunny/Bright and ALL of them were too! ('cept the Sunny/Bright was the last one & it was broken :( ..)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I went by my store today and they had the entire endcap display. I did some checking last night though on reviews in preparation for my trip.. and was shocked to see how bad most of these products are. For all the excitement I was expecting super high quality amazing products, I guess that is why they wound up at Big Lots....

    I did grab a grace palette for my daughter, reviews said it is very under pigmented, and the colors are just right for her age. Lots of baby pinks. I also got the eyeshadow quad in plum, unfortunately they did not have the truffle one. Those were the only products that got more than a 3 on makeup alley. It looks pretty good, nice colors, the darkest two had decent pigmentation when swatched and seemed pretty smooth, although the lighter two were very sheer. Quite happy with it at the $3 price point.

    It was quite eye-opening for me, being one who never buys high end. I have Revlon quads that blow these out of the water.. for $6... and these retail for mid $30's. I feel sorry for whoever paid that much!

  59. For anyone that lives in Minnesota, I went to the one in Woodbury and they only had the cream blush and the eyelighting shadow duo left. I think there were like two of the brushes left too.

  60. The store in San Francisco on Mission has almost all of the items (as of today). No bronzer though:( The store in Dublin, CA had all 3 cream blushes, 1 Angel lip gloss, and several of the liquid highlighters as of a few days ago.

    Thanks so much for posting the master list! I have found 3 shades of the Lit from Within Cream Blushes and 2 varieties of the Mineral Blush Duo. Otherwise, everything looks fantastic! Thank you!

  61. The Biglots in Newark, CA has both quads, 2 colors of cream blushes and heaven/earth eyeshadow duos.
    I went there today and it looks like they just displayed their latest shipment.

WHO Does that! opens peoples cosmetics! sheesh! could have been a gift, I thought she was going to swatch it, right then and there....!

  64. I got the Color of Grace Shimmering Face Powder, and the Box of Truffles eyeshadow quad and let me just say... it was love at first swatch! for BOTH items!!! the shimmering face powder smells like lavender and is a wonderful highlighter. the eyeshadow is silky, especially the darkest color so that it works like magic as an eyeliner, especially with the liner end of the brush.

    It breaks my heart when I finally try higher end products (like these philosophy ones) bc they're on clearance, fall head over heels, only to have them be discontinued. I'm temped to start a campaign to have Philosophy bring these items back >-<
