Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it usually sells out very quickly. (This box is sold out.)

Now, on to the items!
My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask – Value $1.30
This mask is designed to help brighten and moisturize your skin. I like the light scent, and you can wear this for as little as 5 minutes or as long as 30 minutes. And my skin felt super hydrated after just 5 minutes!
Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist – 1.5 oz Value $1.50
This is the perfect type of hairspray formula for me. The hold isn’t firm, so you can still run your fingers through your hair, and the scent is subtle.
Hask Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner– 1.75 oz. Retail Value $2
This hair mask is free of sulfates, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol, artificial colors. I’ve sampled HASK hair masks before and I’m a fan. They smell good and leave my hair feeling soft and moisturized. To use this mask, you apply it post-shampoo, and leave it on for about 10 minutes before rinsing out.
Chapstick Red Lip Tint– FULL SIZE! Retail Value $5
A target-red chapstick!
I already love the ChapStick Total Hydration line’s clear balms, and this version gives you the same amount of moisture with a tint of red. Here it is swatched:
Normally I don’t do bright reds, but this sheer wash of color works for me!
Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara– FULL SIZE! Retail Value $6
This mascara is intriguing…
Introducing Rimmel’s New Shake It Fresh Mascara with exclusive patented packaging designed to refresh your mascara with every shake. With a simple shake, the mascara will be immediately refreshed to its original ideal smoothness, so volume always stays perfectly clump-free.
First impressions of the tube: it’s heavier than your typical mascara, and I was expecting a satisfying sound/feel when I shook it to know it was working (like a can of spray paint), but sadly it just seemed like I was shaking a slightly heavier normal mascara tube.
The formula allowed me to apply multiple layers without any clumping. The volume and length weren’t that impressive, though. (And to be honest, anytime I find a mascara formula not to be working as well as when I first opened it, I take that as a built-in signal that it’s time for me to replace it.)
Vera Wang Embrace Fragrance – 0.04 oz. Value $1.09
This is a sweet, floral fragrance, with notes of Marigold, Melon, Gardenia, and Soft Musks.
imPRESS Nails – FULL SIZE! Value $8
They were super easy to put on. Make sure you are working with clean nails (they include a prep pad). Then peel off the adhesive and press on to your nails:
This set included 30 regular nails + 6 accent nails. I liked how easy it was to do (and easy to take off), but the squoval shape wasn’t for me, and it still felt a little weird wearing nails on my nails!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $24.90. That’s great for a $7 Target beauty box. Plus 3 full-size items is also a win! Not everything was a good match for me this month, but I still got more than my money’s worth.
