Target Beauty Box Review – Wakeup and Makeup
Every month, Target launches a beauty box, and it usually sells out very quickly. This box is actually still available online, and in stores too!

Now, on to the items!
e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Face Palette – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $8
This palette includes a bronzer, a highlighter, and two blush shades.
I was seriously impressed with the sleek silver design of this palette, too. (Amazing for the $8 price point!)
The good news and the bad news:
Good: The colors are easy to blend, and they are flattering on my skin tone
Bad: Pigment just isn’t great.
It took several swipes to get these muted swatches:
If you’re used to intensely pigmented palettes, this probably isn’t for you. However, if you like the idea of contouring but have found it to be intimidating, this is perfect for you. I really like it for a subtle contour every day look.
And target included a brush to help with contouring, too:
e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Blending Brush – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $6
This brush is made with soft, densely-packed synthetic bristles.
It’s a shorter brush, but still easy to hold.
You can use it for both liquid and powder makeup.
It’s an excellent brush, and I love it for contouring with the palette. Hold it the thin way to apply your bronzer and highlighter, then hold it with the bristles covering the most area of your face to blend.
I noticed this mascara doesn’t get great reviews, but I thought the formula was pretty good!
It’s not my favorite formula, but I was able to build out volume and length without any clumping issues. Plus I didn’t have any flaking throughout the day.
Dove Dry Shampoo in Coconut – 1.15 oz Value $1.15
This shampoo goes on clear and absorbs excess oil well. The scent doesn’t actually smell like coconut to me, but it’s still pleasant. (I was just hoping for a beachy, sweet coconut scent!)
Dove Clear Finish Dry Spray Deodorant – FULL SIZE! Value $5.49
This is one of my favorite Target Beauty Box discoveries and now I’m always happy to see it in a box!
This goes on completely clear as promised, and it is instantly dry, too. I don’t mind the scent, and the scent stayed with me all day, too. I think this actually works better than my regular Secret stick!
Sonia Kashuk Brush Cleaning wipe – Value $.90
I love this! I’m terrible at cleaning makeup brushes, and this makes it so easy. It worked well on both dry and liquid makeup, too. The wipes are only good for 1-2 brushes, though.
Honesty Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes (7ct) – Retail Value $2.50
These have a soothing scent, they’re gentle on skin, and they do a great job of removing makeup, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $31.93! That’s incredible for a $7 Target beauty box! I can’t get over how many full-size items are in this box! I definitely recommend grabbing this box if you haven’t already. I’m thinking of buying another one!
