Time to Pucker Up!
TwelveNYC Perfect Pout Cooling Gel Lip Mask
It was freezing outside when I received my Target Beauty Boxes this month, so this gel lip mask was ready to be used right out of the box. I don’t think cold therapy did much to soothe or lock in moisture, but it was a different, refreshing experience for me. It seems a little gimmicky, but I like this sparkling lip-shaped mask and often fall for gimmicks anyway, haha.
Dr. Bronner Lip Balm in Peppermint – Retail Value $2.69
I am picky when it comes to chapstick. I don’t like it to be too waxy or too oily, and as far as flavorings (let’s face it, 90% of what I apply on my lips gets eaten) go, I always prefer fruity or vanilla flavors to peppermint. Even though it is refreshing and tastes great, peppermint oil dries out my lips over time, which leads to a higher demand for chapstick. It is a vicious cycle! In a pinch, this oily balm will do the trick, but it is not a new go-to.
Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Mask – Retail Value $2.59
I was shocked and relieved that this mask was not Burt’s signature peppermint flavor. It is a paper-thin mask doused in almond and meadowfoam seed oils that will fit any sized lips. You can leave it on up to five minutes and does not require any rinsing; I wiped away what was left outside of my lip line and rubbed the excess product into my lips. It provided hydration and smoothed my lips so they were primed and perfect for lipstick application.
St. Ives Passionfruit Lip Scrub, 0.5 oz – Retail Value $4.99
Sugar masks are awesome for lips that need a little TLC. I usually just rub brown sugar with a drop of olive oil on my lips for a quick scrub, but this tub (which is slightly more convenient) has granules of 100% natural sugar for more gentle exfoliation. I also love the passionfruit flavor, which takes me back to my Bonne Bell Lipsmacker days.
Milani Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick in “I Am Confident” – Retail Value $5.99
I am thrilled that Target included a lipstick in this box! I think this shade would be lovely on any skin tone, especially with this bold matte finish. I was surprised how hydrating this matte formula was, and I am looking forward to browsing more colors in this finish.
Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Peony – Retail Value $4.79
Another full-sized lip product! I had a slew of these when they first came out, and my mom always has one of these packed in her pocketbook. It was fun revisiting this old favorite, and this neutral pink Peony shade is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. I don’t mind this minty formula since it isn’t meant to be just a lip moisturizer, but does that hole on the last photo bother anyone else? I will definitely use this shimmer stick up, but that hole is unsettling.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in Plums Up, 0.15 fl oz – Estimated Value $5.86 (Buy 0.23 fl oz for $8.99)
Plums Up has a very natural mauvy hue, my very favorite color to use on my lips. This formula is lip-plumping, leaving your lips tingling after application. It is not one of my favorite products to use; I like to baby my skin and lips, and the tingling is borderline uncomfortable for me. However, the tingling does subside after a few minutes of wear, and you’re left with sheer, shiny color and a chocolatey flavor on your lips.
Swatches from top to bottom: Milani Matte Lipstick in I Am Confident, Sexy Mother Pucker in Plums Up, Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmers in Peony
Verdict: Yes, yes, yes!!! I’m so glad Target Beauty Box finally came out with a box of makeup! The items in this month’s box included some awesome products from awesome brands, making it well worth the $7 price tag. Love it! The value of this box comes to $26.91, which is almost 4x the cost of the box and one of the highest values I’ve seen Target put out.
