REVIEW | Target's Spring 2015 Beauty Box

I've been waiting a long time to buy one of these.

I don't have any subscription boxes. I had Loot Crate last year, but I stopped subscribing and Ipsy and Birchbox don't really appeal to me. But, Target's Beauty boxes have had some great products for the price lately, and I thought I'd give it a go. And, for $7, I couldn't resist.
Target's Beauty Box is exactly what the title suggests, a beauty box by Target. However, it's a combination of items that they carry at their stores, and you're bound to get a full size of one or two of the items. I ordered my box on Wednesday, the 3rd, and received it on Saturday, June 6th. It helps that I have a Target warehouse in my state, which cut down on the shipping time, but I was still pleasantly surprised.

The beauty box comes in a plastic wrap over a gift box, with the shipping label stick to one side. When the plastic comes off, the label comes off. The beauty box has the Target bullseye on the front, and inside, it has an intro to the box, with a coupon and list of the items in the box. 




The items are protected by a double folded layer of red tissue paper, and are neatly placed, label up, in the box. I was surprised at the quality of items I received. Target has always carried different beauty brands than other superstores, and I'm glad I was sent some items I have never tried before. I received 5 items, 3 of which are full size. 





Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Gladiolus 
$7.99

 A beautiful and creamy traditional red lipstick from Revlon. This line is named after flowers and it smells...good. Like strawberry creme. As a self proclaimed red lipstick aficionado, this lipstick was made for me and I can't wait to bust it out.

SinfulColors Professional Nail Polish in Energetic Red
$1.99


I don't wear polish often, but red is such a classic and staple color that it's definitely welcome in my small collection. SinfulColors is known for their array of colors and I like to admire their colors every now and again, so I'm sure this will get some use.

Fekkai Professional Hair Care Styling Creme
(full size): $19.99

I don't style my hair often, I'm more of a pin it and go kind of gal, but, I have been looking at some styling cremes for my unruly psuedo bands. So, hopefully Fekkai lives up to the reviews I've seen online.

Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads
(full size) $3.99

As I mentioned before, I don't wear nail polish often, but, hey, free remover for when I do is always a good thing! Plus, it's in pad form, so no spilling corrosive liquid everywhere. 

Olay Regenerist Luminous HydraSwirl Eye Cream
$23.99

I don't have a bad case of dark circles but I have some discoloration. I actually own another Olay product for my face, so maybe doubling the Olay will fix it all. Olay^2.



So, for $7, I recieved 3 full size beauty products and 2 samples, a value of more than $40.
What a deal.!

If you're someone who likes drugstore make up and doesn't want to spend a lot on hit-or-miss items, I would definitely recommend Target's Beauty Box. It sells out pretty fast, so you have to keep an eye out, but if you can snag one up, it's worth it.
