L’Oréal Voluminous Primer – FULL SIZE! Value $6
This primer is designed to give your lashes volume, conditioner lashes, and prime them for mascara.
It goes on white, and it’s easily covered with mascara.
I was very impressed with this formula – SO much volume with only a few swipes! And it means I’ll use less mascara per use, too!
Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black – FULL SIZE! Value $6
This eyeliner packaging is pretty slick!
The end cap is a removable smudger and pencil sharpener:
This liner is well pigmented and has good staying power, too. (Just make sure to let it dry for a minute before touching it!)
(Swatched in lower photo.)
This mask smelled lovely and also added moisture without making my hair too oily. (I did avoid massaging it into my roots, though!)
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream – 12 ml Value $6
Good news about this sample – this tube is completely full! This brand is new to me, and I was excited to try this day cream since it’s made with organic, natural, and fair trade ingredients.
The formula is super light – I’d describe it as a gel/cream hybrid. It has a subtle rose scent, but it faded quickly, and the cream absorbed into my skin almost instantly as well.
If you are looking for a lightweight day cream, I recommend checking this out. If you need more moisture during the winter months, this may not be enough for you.
Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask – Value $4.80
This sheet mask is a little different than most sheet masks in that it comes in two parts. (That works great for me because my face doesn’t always match up well with the eye, nose and mouth holes on the one-sheet-fits-all masks.)
This mask is a 30-minute one. A little longer than I would have liked, but it left my skin feeling super soft and refreshed, so I can’t complain!
W3LL People Bio Brightener (Mini) – Value $11.99
FYI, the full-size version of this product comes in stick form, but the mini version is in a pot:
This is one of the most flattering highlighters I’ve ever tried. It’s a creamy formula, super easy to blend in, and the end result is a glow/sheen, NOT a shimmer.
I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a natural highlighter look. Here it is swatched (not blended in) with the eyeliner from above:
L’Oréal Advanced HairCare Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo – 1.7 oz Value $.50
(FYI – this shampoo includes sulfates in the ingredients in case you are avoiding those in your hair care products.)
I tried this shampoo out and it seemed to work well enough! I don’t have fine hair, so I didn’t see much of a difference in volume, but as a shampoo, it worked well and this sample should be good for at least two uses.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $37. I think that’s a great value for a $10 beauty box. I know this box wasn’t as popular as other Target Beauty Boxes, but I ended up really enjoying it. The Andalou Naturals day cream was a nice discovery, and I’m IN LOVE with the W3LL People highlighter! (Plus it is great to see W3LL People included in a Target Beauty Box!)
