  1. This is the first time I got any kind of target beauty box (due to selling out so quickly) I signed up for alerts on MSA and as soon as I saw these were available, I ordered both! I received both today and WOW these are awesome!! I will use EVERYTHING in both of these boxes… for $7.48 each box, the value of these are great (plus including a coupon in both boxes increases the value more) even better than some monthly subs that you pay $20-$25 for!!

  2. I got the Best of Boots box and it arrived today. It’s probably the best Target box I’ve ever gotten. The curation is fantastic and the value is around $35, not to mention the amazing $5 coupon included.

    • I also think this is probably the best box I got from Target. And Boots Botanics have a lot of great skincare products, so I am sure that coupon will get used.

      • Although I have to add that the regular Target box this month is also awesome.

    • What is the size of the palette?

      • it will fit in your palm. It’s about 3 1/2 in by 2 in.
        It’s going into my purse make up bag!

    • I agree, this box is so awesome and so needed!!! No wonder it sold out quickly

  3. The eyeshadow palette is .08 Oz., not .64 Oz.

    • its so small but perfect for travel or in purse

    • Each color is tiny, but so cute! I think it will be perfect for traveling, a good variety of shades plus a nice little mirror.

      • I know! I can’t decide if I want to keep it for travel, or to swap it.

        Anyone know the quality of their shadows? Worth keeping?

        • Walgreens sells that brand too. It’s drugstore type quality which is ok by me.
          I gave mine to my 12 y.o. Niece who is THRILLED because it’s so tiny.
          It’s not real pigmented and those shades are light in color once applied. Perfect for a young lady for special occasions.

          Great box!

      • I got mine today – it’s adorable! I actually like all the shimmer colors, would be nice to do matte /metallic combinations, so I’ll keep it for travel.

  4. i got the boots one and it was shipped today but they are calling it the best of the uk beauty box weird but its the same item’s weird idk why they would change the name of it lol

    • Mine still has not shipped 🙁

      • I got mine today and I’m about to open them. I bought one of each box. 🤣

      • Mine hasn’t either I got two under two different accounts because they are going two different places. I got on here to see if there was a problem with shipping because it’s never taken this long to ship and neither one has shipped

  5. I’m trying to buy the Target Best of Boots Beauty Box and I can’t find it. I went under Targets beauty box, and I only found the products in Target Best of Boots Beauty Box at full price very confused. Can u help?

    • That box sold out.

  6. Well dayum!! These boots won’t be walking thru both boxes …at least I snagged one !

  7. I snagged both! Yay!

  8. I think it’s ridiculous that the boxes sell out so fast. Either limit the amount that can be purchased or increase the amount available. Everyone would like to be able to sample new things

    • Actually they haven’t sold out in months and often have put them on sale to get rid of them.

    • As of about 3 hours ago they were both still available. They went live overnight and were both up, pretty much all day. This is the first box in awhile that’s sold out the same day it became available.

    • I totally agree with you. I mean come on, it’s Target not some high end company. Everyone should be able to order more than just for a few hours and they need to keep more in stock. I can’t understand why a company with such fantastic marketing people do things like this. I got one of the 2 boxes. So silly!

    • This didn’t sell out in minutes. It sold out in a day… it was up all day yesterday and into last night. As aforementioned by another comment, this is the first time they’ve sold out in months. You win some you lose some. People need to stop whining and complaining when they don’t snag something. It’s not the end of the world.

      • I bought my boxes at 3:00 am Tuesday morning so they went live early. The new boxes (boxes that aren’t full of regular target products) tend to sell out fast. If you really want boxes, check the Target website early on the first Monday of the month or follow MSA- she puts the information up as soon as she gets it.

    • I totally agree it’s ridiculous people buying multiple boxes so cheap just to turn around and sell I’m guessing because why else you you buy more than two I do sometimes for my daughter and I if we both like the box but not 4or5 boxes because they have a palette in the box and it’s 7 dollars

  9. Shoot, I didn’t see this til now and the Boots box is sold out. Ah well…

  10. Today is my birthday so I got the boots box! My first box was the Target September box. I didn’t get the Oct, Nov or Dec boxes. Glad to see this one though!

    • Happy Birthday!

    • Happy Birthday! 🎂🎈🎉🎁🎊😊

  11. Got the Boots box…like many others, this is the first one in a while that I’ve been excited about! Can’t wait to try some new products, especially the primer.

  12. I just bought the boots box and it’s like 5 times the amount I paid. I only don’t like the soap and glory gloss but I am looking forward to the other 5. Yay 🙂

  13. I got 2 of the Boots boxes. Really looking forward to the No. 7 products especially!

  14. Anyone else seeing a shipping charge when the leftover men’s box is added to the cart? I had one women’s box and the men’s and it showed $3 shipping. I checked out with just the boots box and there was no shipping, then tried adding the men’s box to the cart by itself and now shipping comes up as $5.99? I definitely am not paying more for shipping then actual box contents. Anyone else seeing shipping charges?

    • I didn’t pay shipping and I ordered 2 yesterday. I did use a Target card so Idk if that matters.

    • Yes, the same thing happened to me. I live chatted and had them reverse the shipping back to zero. The customer service representative did not know why it was coming up that way. Live chat took forever too, ugh.

  15. I couldn’t resist ordering both of these boxes. I will gift what I don’t use.

  16. I’m curious about the size of the Sleek palette in the Boots box. The advertised weight of 0.64 oz is larger than the full size palettes. Is it a mini palette and the weight is for the entire thing including packaging?

    • Oh man, I hope they didn’t list inaccurate information AGAIN. I took screenshots of the box details and the picture of it – just in case.

    • I noticed that too.. another typo? Guess we’ll find out when we get the box!

  17. I bought all 3 . I still have too much products. Christmas thinned my stash out a good bit.

    • All three?

      • The men’s box on sale as well.

        • Oh, gotcha 🙂

  18. Wow! Nice job Target! Bought both and it’s been months since I popped in a Target box!

  19. I got the boots box, curious about the serum and eye primer. Has anyone tried the boots eye cream? Is it any good? I’m tempted to add it to my cart.

  20. I hope 0.3 oz shampoo is a misprint. It’d be a joke for my very long hair.

    • That’s got to be a typo. I’ve had their travel bottles before. I’m guessing that’s 3 oz. Unless Target’s pulling another “what you see is not what you get”, and it’s going to be a foil packet. I hope not, though.

      • Thanks, Rebecca! 3 oz is a generous size. Enough to decide if you like the product or not. I hope they’d not send us a foil sample instead too.

  21. I love these, but I am so broke right now! If I’m being totally honest, though, a lot of these items would be “filed away” in my stash. Oh, well. Glad to see many are excited by these boxes, though.

    Hopefully all the Target 2018 boxes will be this good, since I skipped a few in 2017. I would also love to see more men’s boxes.

  22. Decided against buying any even though they both look good to me. I just looked at my stash and I have quite a surplus despite only subscribing to a couple boxes.

    I will save my $14 and wait until I actually need some of the products that are in the box. That $14 is only a teeny tiny fraction of what I would like to save this year, and I can afford it, but I’m considering this setting the stage for the year. 🙂 I’m sure I’ll buy more Target boxes but I’ll see if I can use up some of my backlog first.

  23. They surprised me by pushing it to Tuesday morning- I started checking from Sunday night!.

    I bought both boxes.

  24. Picked up the Boots box, and then doubled back to get the regular box too! 😜

    Looking forward to more Nexxus & Vichy. Planning on using the Boots coupon on more No. 7 lash enhancer. Excited about that palette too!

    Great way to start the new year Target!

    Thanks Liz for the notification. You emails for these boxes typically arrive hours before Target’s bb announcements! Depending on the box content, those few hours can be the difference in getting one!

  25. I bought both boxes at 6;15 this morning, i will use everything. I’m so excited because Target was slipping with the boxes. I haven’t bought one in moths!

  26. Way to welcome in the new year, Target! These are both great, it’s been so long since a Target box thrilled me 🙂

  27. I bought both! Looks like I can use everything in the box. I like that they offered the Boots box in addition to the regular Target beauty box. Nice start to 2018! Thanks for the alert. These should sell out fast.

  28. I didn’t think these were for me, but I’m glad I looked again. I’m in for a Best of Boots box. I always love to try primers and apparently, I’m now collecting eye shadow palettes as a new hobby. I love finding good colors to wear everyday and this particular palette looks great. I hope those are the colors I get!

    • I also seem to have picked up a palette collection hobby…

    • Apparently I have the same hobby. I clicked to buy as soon as I saw the photo of the eye palette, not even caring what else was there…and now thinking it’s probably going to end up being a tiny mini, but that’s ok. As long as it’s not teeny sample strips.

  29. FINALLY!!! Target is getting back to having a hard to miss box!!

  30. I don’t need more beauty products but I ordered both anyway… after skipping most Target boxes last year.

    Kudos to Shay, Linda & CMB for their willpower – stay strong!

  31. Wow, both boxes look awesome to me! In the first one I’ll use everything but the sheet mask.

    And I am just glad they are doing something like the second box – hope it becomes a regular thing now.

    Going to order both right now.

  32. Anybody notice the coupon that comes in the Boot box is different that the ususal $3 off $15. It is a $5 off $20 of certain brands in the box only.

    • I didn’t notice initially, but it makes sense that if a brand is doing a box like this, they want to promote themselves, not Target in general.

      I recently discovered some nice No7 liquid eyeliners, so that coupon will actually come in handy.

    • Yes, I saw that. OK with me. I’ll either like the products and buy more with the coupon or I won’t.

  33. Wow!! Target comes roaring back for 2018. This is the first time in at least 6 months I’ve purchased their boxes. Both had things I’ve been wanting to try or know I already love. Nice way to ease back into post-holiday reality.

  34. This is the first time I’ve gotten a Target box… I paused my Ipsy this month and got the best of Boots instead. SO EXCITED!

  35. I bought both. I couldn’t decide which one to get lol.

  36. Boots box looks like a winner!

  37. Couldn’t resist the second box. I’ve been wanting to try soap and glory, so this is perfect. I don’t need another eye shadow palette – so I’ll probably put that up on the swap site if anyone is interested! Although, I am excited to see one in a box – hope they’ll continue with similar boxes in the coming months.

    • Oh my. I am in love with soap and glory. It’s so addicting.

  38. Both boxes look good, but I went for the Best of Boots as I haven’t tried any of their products.

    Thks MSA for the alert! I completely forgot this month. Much appreciated.

  39. First time in months I’ve been interested in a Target box. I’m interested in all of the products. Have always wanted to try Boots skincare, and I hope the lip colors work out. I bought 1 of each.

    • Ditto. Boots is an amazing brand. I love a lot of their products.

  40. Very excited about these – picked up one each for me and one for my niece.

  41. Can’t decide if I want them both, one or none. They both look great but not sure I “need” anything in the boxes and since you can’t control the colors of makeup they send it might not be worth it.

  42. I like both boxes! That hasn’t happened in long time. I did buy both and look forward to using everything.

    • I agree. I got both. Best in a long time.

  43. These are nice, but I vowed to get rid of my stash before buying any additional boxes. Hope you all enjoy (if you are grabbing a box)!

    • Same here… I’m tempted, but I vowed to go through my stash of stuff and already having some subs, I have to decline at some point (and try to stop accumulating more things).

    • Same here!! I have Target gift cards just begging to be used on these!

      But I have such a huge stash of things to use up (one of my goals this year, don’t buy beauty till I run out) argh. Maybe I’ll be able to swap for some of the things I want, & it’ll be a win/win, haha 😉

  44. I got both! I really wanted to get more than that but I figured I’d wait for the coupons that come with the boxes to get 2 more, that is if there still available! I can totally see the boots one selling out’

  45. Couldn’t make up my mind! Such great boxes! For this price, I bought both!

  46. Did anyone else notice that the coupon included with Best of Boots box is “$5 off your purchase of $20 or more of qualifying brands: Sleek, Botanics, Soap & Glory, and No. 7”? Not the standard “$3 off $15 beauty purchase” they usually include. It is brand-specific to this box. Interesting. Still on the fence about buying it.

  47. I ordered both. This was the first time I’ve been quick enough to get one! They both are full of things I’ll use. Can’t wait!!

  48. This is the first time I’ve been enticed enough to buy a box too! I just bought the January box.

  49. Will all the palettes and lip glosses in the Best of Boots box be the colors pictured, or will they vary?

    • They do give random colors. You can’t count on the picture. That is the only real risk. I haven’t loved the lipstick colors I’ve received in these boxes, but sometimes it works out. Usually I make sure I want the other items and it is still worth it before I count on loving the lipstick.

      • I have been wanting to try boots, and I think for seven dollars it’s worth it even if the colors aren’t exactly great because now I can try the formulas and quality before spending full price on something I might not like so for me this is great.

        • And considering that the palette alone is $12, the box is an amazing value!

  50. Woop woop! I got the Best of Boots box. This is the first time in MONTHS that I’ve actually been tempted into buying a box.

    • I bought too!! I will actually use everything in the box! YAY!
