Target Beauty Box Review – October 2017
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it usually sells out very quickly. (This box is no longer available.)

Now, on to the items!
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Pink Bliss – FULL SIZE! Value $5
(Colors will vary)
This is a matte liquid lip color with excellent pigment and a creamy texture. I really lucked out on the shade, too. It’s a little lighter than my typical go-to lip color but still works well for my skin tone. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black – FULL SIZE! Value $7.69
(Colors will vary
This eyeliner isn’t an intense jet black, but it’s a perfect eyeliner for everyday looks for me. It glides on smoothly and is almost instantly smudge-proof, too.
And it comes with a built-in smudger and sharpener:

The lip color turned out to be long-lasting, too!
e.l.f. Wax Brow Pencil – FULL SIZE! Value $2
This is one of those products that I can’t believe I didn’t already own – it’s so convenient.
I typically do my brows with a brow powder + spoolie, and this is the perfect way to just keep them in place – no eyebrow gel required!
Raw Sugar Lemon Sugar Hand Wash- 2 oz. Value $.60
This brand is one of my all-time favorite Target Beauty Box discoveries. Not only are their products ingredient-conscious, but their packaging and sourcing are done ethically as well!
And the scent! Lemon sugar may be the best scent ever.
Masque BAR Wrinkle- Reducing Mask – Value $3.50
This is a collagen-infused facial mask designed to reduce wrinkles and hydrate your skin. You’re supposed to leave in on for 20-30 minutes. I called it at 15 and was still happy with the results. My skin felt very hydrated after using it! (And I appreciate that the scent is subtle.)
L’Oreal Extraordinary Hair Clay System – 20 ml total Value $.25
This shampoo and conditioner set is formulated with clay to help eliminate oil. (There is also a pre-shampoo treatment that wasn’t included.) My hair doesn’t get too oily unless I try to go a day without washing it, so I didn’t notice a big difference in this shampoo vs my regular shampoo, but I liked it.
Maui Moisture Shea Butter Shampoo – 3.3 oz. Value $1.75
Out of the two shampoo options, this one is my favorite. (And a great new brand discovery!) It’s ingredient conscious and smells AMAZING! I just wish Target had included the conditioner to go with it!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $20.80. I think that’s good for a $7 beauty box. And 3 full size make up items in very wearable colors? That makes this an A+ Target Beauty Box for me!
