Target Beauty Box Unboxing!

          I was feeling pretty stressed this morning, so when I saw my Target Box was out for delivery I practically skipped out to the mailbox to get it. The mailman had just arrived and hadn't even finished distributing the mail. But he had already left my box!! I left everything else there and ran inside to open it. And now here it is!

     Target started doing beauty boxes just this year with a spring box. I missed it but everyone else seemed to love it. When I heard they had a fall box I ordered it right away. It was $7 and while I heard some people had to pay shipping, mine came up with a shipping discount. Guess I got lucky! 

Let's open it shall we?

There are five items included in the Fall Target Beauty Box as detailed on the included card.

L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray in Extra Strong Hold
Frederic Fekkai Professional Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo
LANEIGE BB cushion sample
NYX Jumbo Eye pencil
L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick

There is also included a $3 off coupon for a beauty purchase of $15 or more, Yay!!! (There's a Sonia Kashuk brush I've been wanting to try. Might be the right time!)

     L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray in Extra Strong Hold- I've used these hairsprays before, about a year or so ago. I bought them while I was in England because believe it or not, it was less expensive to buy some there and bring it home. At first I didn't like them. I thought the hold was too weak, but I really liked how little build up was left on my hair the next day. I've since used up my can and I haven't repurchased again because $15 is a lot for hairspray. Definitely a plus to get this and if you have the funds, I would definitely recommend trying it.  

     Frederic Fekkai Professional Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo- Dry Shampoo is not something I've had good luck with. My hair is pretty dry and naturally pretty straight so dry shampoo tends to make my scalp itchy. That being said, I'm going to give it a shot. Maybe I'll have a new love!

     LANEIGE BB cushion sample- I cannot state how happy I was to see this sample included in the Target box. I missed this sample when it was in some of the beauty boxes earlier this year and have been really wanting to try it. I will likely trade the Medium and Dark colors, but the cushion and the Light sample are all mine!

     NYX Jumbo Eye pencil- I'm pretty sure all of the Target boxes included this pencil in white, which is not my first choice but definitely usable. The color is "milk" and has no shimmer or sparkle that I could see. If you remember from my last eye shadow tutorial, I already have the Dark Brown. I don't know why I don't own all the colors, these pencils are amazing. They're incredibly smooth and creamy and easy to blend. They slide right over any bumps or wrinkles and don't tug at all. Very excited to use this one too!! 

     L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick- This is the item I was hands-down most excited to try when I opened my box. I had no idea this was a LIQUID lipstick!! Not only that, but I was lucky enough to receive it in a perfect color for me, #601 Nude Ballet. I naturally have full, darker lips and I'm always looking for colors that tone that down.  This color happens to be a great peachy nude and is very flattering on light skin tones.

Look at all those pretty sparkles! I can't wait to wear this. 

I am really happy with the Fall Target Beauty Box. It is definitely worth the $7 and even if you won't use all the products, they would be easy to give to someone who will. I will be keeping my eye out for the next one this spring!

What product would you be most excited about trying?

    1. Thanks Whitney!!!! I couldn't believe Target had such a great box either and I almost ordered two! I'm loving the lipstick and you should definitely try the hairspray! Apparently Walmart has a box as well and it's only $5, so watch out for that one too!
