  1. I got mine in the mail yesterday! I got my tracking info on the 11th, and live in CA. Hope this helps anyone waiting for theirs. I did get the exact box, but with a nude lip gloss.

    • I got Milk in both boxes. But one box had a red lipgloss and the other one had pink.

  2. Tried the hairspray which unfortunately didn’t hold my hair. On the bright side, this is a very nice which box which can easily be used for a gift.

  3. Got my (2) boxes today. Really disappointed that what looked (to me) in the picture like a pinkish lipstick turned out to be a peachy lip gloss as I cannot wear pink!

    • Obviously I meant to type cannot wear peach. No edit button on this forum?

  4. I can’t believe it, but I was just able to order one! I was on a cruise when this was published and I just knew I was going to miss this box. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. I just checked my account and it says my order has shipped. Have not received any shipping notice or tracking so who knows when it shipped, how it’s shipped or when it’s due! But I hope I get it soon.

    • I got a shipping notification and tracking # on Saturday but the tracking # doesn’t work yet. I’ve checked it many times!

  6. Did anyone else get charged shipping and tax? When I got to the “Complete Order” page, it added $5.27 for shipping and $.63 for tax for a grand total of $12.90! Quite an increase. The description says that the item is supposed to ship for free.

    I called customer service, and the rep insisted that I needed a $50 minimum for free shipping. I know that’s their standard policy. But when I called her attention to the description, which reads, “Due to wanting to get you the best price, we’ll pay to ship it to you, but please allow up to two weeks for delivery,” she said that probably only applied to the lipstick (?). I think she didn’t understand what the box was. She put me on hold to look into it, and then came back to state that she would waive the shipping as a one-time courtesy. Still got charged the $.63 tax, though. I was on the phone for 20 minutes (the time stamp read 20:02 when I hung up). Way too much hassle for a $7 beauty box.

    • On 10/6/14 I bought 3 of these sets and it did not charge me shipping. Today, I put 3 more in my cart and it was going to charge me shipping if I had completed the transaction. Something has changed. It’s good you spoke up.

      • Thank you, Nancy. I’m glad to hear that it wasn’t just me!

  7. Too bad they won’t ship to PO boxes. πŸ™

  8. Thanks for the heads up! I got one for myself and one for my sister. I know I want to try all but the dry shampoo but my sister uses it.

  9. Too bad it doesn’t ship to Canada! Wish I could get one it looks like a great deal!

  10. The fine print on the Target site says colours will vary! Awesome!

    • Yay!

      • Yep, which is how I ended up buying two! I’m living in two different places.. My home on off days, with family during my work week… I think I need a set for each place!

  11. Bought! I’ve been getting them since they started them at $5 I didn’t know they ever had them free so $5 was awesome its a little sucky that its $7 now but the value is still 4 times the cost which is great and I’ve loved everything so far. I wish they had an autoship feature so I would forget about it

  12. Went ahead and ordered one! I loved the last box and of course there are no such things as too much dry shampoo or lipstick πŸ™‚

  13. I have the lipstick and NYX jumbo pencil. Both are very good. I have two lipsticks and six or seven pencils and I don’t mind having two more.

  14. So glad they had spoiler so I can skip this one, I have tried almost all of that with the exception in the NYX and it doesn’t really seem like something I would use anyway. Hope everyone enjoys their boxes!

  15. I got one! I love dry shampoo and lip stick, and it was such a great price!

  16. In for two as I have recently discovered that I love dry shampoo and am trying to build up a stash. If anyone hates dry shampoo and has plenty, I would love to work something out with you.

    • I have one, this one and one one the way. Do you have any Pur-lisse by any chance?

      The one I have is Korlane, Bastiste is coming in my Blush box as well as this one.


      • Sylvia, I love Klorane. What is the other one you have coming? I do have a Purchase SPF. Is that what you mean?

      • Sorry, reading on phone. I see the info on third dry shampoo.

      • The Batiste dry shampoos are on sale at Ulta this week, buy one, get one half off, then I used the $3.50 coupon from the paper last weekend = good deal. I also just realized I like dry shampoo, and that my hair color likes it even more! Can’t get enough of it right now. Going to try Klorane next.

      • Sylvia, Are you still interested?

  17. I ordered as well. I will use everything in this box and for $7! I didn’t get the Walmart box so I am def. getting this one. I have the NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk and I love it. It is excellent! I hope to get another color but either way, I will be happy!

  18. I remember when these used to be free. And this was just last year before I was addicted to sub boxes.

  19. I grabbed two. I’ve been wanting to try that hairspray for a long time but just couldn’t pull the trigger for a $7 trial size. I’m excited to try everything. Thanks for the heads up, Liz!

  20. When I heard Target Beauty Box, my heart started racing with excitement. But… nope, I’m going to pass on this. Nothing for a curly-haired girl who hates lipgloss.

  21. Am I the only person having trouble with links from the posts here on My Subscription Addiction? Recently when I click on a link from here I get something like this and a blank white screen the leads nowhere. I missed out on a few deals lately because I couldn’t find the webpages on my own and these links don’t work for me. I use Firefox. Anyone no how to fix this issue? Thanks

    • I use Chrome and have never had an issue. Maybe try using a different browser?

      • I use Safari & no problems.

    • I use Firefox without any issues. I did click on the Target link with no problems. Do you remember which link is giving you a problem? I can try it on my computer and see if I have the same issue.

      I was all set to buy this box, but nothing appeals to me.

    • Try clearing your browser history and cookies – that could be the culprit.

    • I have the same problem with Firefox. Thought it was just me.

  22. I just bought one. I wish they hadn’t jumped from $0 to $5 to $7 so quickly, but I will use everything except the hair spray, which can go to a friend. I’m a sucker for these Target boxes despite the price jump.

  23. Got one and saved 5% using my Target card. πŸ™‚

  24. Just ordered it. This is the hairspray I use, I am looking for a new dry shampoo, and I have been wanting to try this lipgloss. πŸ˜€

    • I believe it’s a lipstick. Still will be great though!

      • It’s a gloss πŸ™‚ I got it in a box a little while ago. It looks like a lip stick, but has a gloss applicator.

        • Thanks for the clarification!

        • I got this gloss in another box, forget which one, and I really like it, the color is peachy and summery so if this shade is different I’m happy to have another.

      • It’s lipgloss. They are amazing! I have 4 πŸ˜‰

  25. This box is everything I wish Ipsy would be. All brands that are good (not just ones that are always on sale on Hautelook), all great sizes, well rounded choices.
    And this is $3 cheaper!

  26. Did anyone else in PA have trouble ordering this? I got the following message:

    Target Beauty Box Restricted item (hazmat) this item can’t be delivered to Pennsylvania

    This doesn’t seem right at all.

    • Well, I tried again using my office address and it worked. Apparently it doesn’t like P.O. Boxes. I guess that one will just have to be delivered to my work!

    • I think the hairspray is the issue for PA. There’s some regulation in place regarding aerosols.

  27. Oops! Wrong lipstick for the dupe but still a good deal, right? ; )

    • This was supposed to respond to my first comment. Oops!

  28. As soon as I saw the post I went and ordered it. I wonder if everyone will get the Milk NYX pencil or if it’ll be different. Either way it’s a freaking awesome box well worth the price!

  29. Yep! Just got it. That’s my favorite hairspray and the travel size is $6 at Target, so that alone almost makes up the entire cost of the box. I also really like the L’Oreal lipstick. It’s a nice dupe of the YSL glossy stain, which I also have.

  30. Just order it =) I’ve loved my ipsy subscription and birch box and Walmart box and now I’m getting targets. Pretty sure I’m becoming addicted lol

  31. Why can’t I order one? When I hit Add to cart…nothing happens

    • I had the same problem and ended up placing 4 separate orders. check your account, if you have one with Target and it will show you your recent orders and then you will know for sure if it was placed or if you don’t have an account set up with them, you will receive an email shortly after your order is placed.

  32. I was on the fence so of course that means I ordered LOL. I love dry shampoo and am hoping the color for the lipstick is just an example but if it’s not I’m sure it will be great come spring/summer.

  33. great deal – skipping it though – I’m picky when it comes to dry shampoo and dont use hair spray, and these items could not be shipped because of airsole cans, so i could not put them up for swap. – Glad I dont like the items in the box – Just saved $7 πŸ™‚

    • LOL – me too! I went berserk when I saw the subject line, but when I looked more closely at the items, I did a “meh.” I could use the hairspray, but I already have dry shampoo that I barely use, the BB would be great if it were more than a small sample, and the sample colors of the NYX and L’oreal are enough to make me hold off.

  34. All I saw was *Target Beauty Box* & I didn’t even read the post, just looked for the link & ordered!!! I didn’t want to miss out!! I totally read the post after, though. This is great box for the cost! I love quality dry shampoos. I have been hoarding the Klorane dry shampoo from the swap site. I have a drawer full of them at my make up table, I love it so much!!!!

    • I did the same Rhianna….great deal. I’ve been wanting to try the hairspray as it was on one of my (many) beauty blogs. It’s a treat for $7.

      • I was very excited! Now, just counting down until Golden Tote time! Yay! πŸ™‚

  35. Couldn’t help but to grab two of them πŸ™‚ I think it’s a great value and it’s all stuff I would use. I’m pretty excited to see laneige in there too I must admit. K-beauty made it’s way into the target box? How fun is that πŸ™‚ Even if it’s a small sample it will still be fun to try.

    I’m wondering if the Nyx and lipstick will be random colors or will we actually get milk for the Nyx? Milk makes such a great e/s primer… I wouldn’t mind having a few more.
