I had a ball when I saw the stand of beauty boxes displayed in my local Target’s beauty department. It took at least 6 minutes for me to make a decision, asking myself
“do you want to luxuriate?” “do you want new makeup?” or “do you have room for more face masks?”. During my final deliberation, I decided to buy the Wakeup and Makeup beauty box which is a box full of makeup that’s worth $30 USD. for only SEVEN dollars!
For $7 USD, this is what I received:
ELF Beautifully Bare Blending Brush $6
ELF Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Face Palette $8
Dove Invisible Dry Spray $5.50
Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara $5.50
Dove Dry Shampoo – Coconut $2
Honest Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes $2.50
A few weeks in and I’ve used everything except for the dry shampoo, Covergirl mascara, and the makeup brush cleansing wipe. I was quite skeptical when I opened the ELF face palette and realized how light each shade was, to my surprise the blushes and highlighter were able to finish off my everyday makeup look with a natural flush and subtle highlight. The makeup remover wipes worked well but they smell very strong and that was definitely a turn-off. If I was in need of more makeup remover wipes, I would not purchase the Honest brand due to the smell alone, and it is not a bad scent just strong. The spray deodorant works well but I prefer my Degree dry-spray better, as it seems to last longer throughout the day.
Overall, I would definitely purchase another beauty box from Target if they continue selling them in-store! It’s a great deal and opportunity to try products you may have always wanted. A steal!
