The Target beauty sample bag: did you get yours?

Remember at the  beginning of this month when I posted about the offer on Target.com for a free Sonia Kashuk makeup bag filled with beauty samples (which is no longer available, so please don't try to get one)? If you signed up for it, did you get it yet? I've received lots of tweets and emails from those of you who received your bags this week, and my awesome reader Robin sent me a pic of the contents of the bag she received:

The contents of Robin's package included a Sonia Kashuk makeup bag, a full size tube of the new Neutrogena Naturals lip balm (which I just reviewed here--I will  be so curious to know if you guys agree with my review!), a sample of Revlon ColorBurst gloss, a sample bottle of the new Nivea lotion (I've been so curious about this one!), a sample bottle of Pantene, sample packets of Fekkai haircare and a bunch of beauty coupons. I think this was an awesome FREE sampler deal so I hope you all signed up for it.

My lovely twitter follower @BeautybyAnnie tweeted me a pic of her bag, and it was identical to Robin's, so it APPEARS that everyone's getting the same items (let me know in the comments if the contents of your bag are different than what you see in the photo above).

If you got your bag and you tried the Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm, please let me know if you agree with my review. I am loving this balm more and more by the day, so I'm glad you all have a chance to try it (for free!).

Did you get your bag yet?

Thanks again, Robin, for the awesome pic!

  2. Aw, just to try out the Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm would have made my day. I wasn't able to sign up for the sample bag. The review you gave made me hope that the Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm could be my new lip balm, so I could finally stop using the medicated one that I have. Guess I still need to go out and buy it.

  3. I got mine today. There was supposed to be a nail polish in the bag :(

  4. I got my bag today as well, and the contents were identical to the ones mentioned in your post. Loving the lip balm so far!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I got mine yesterday. I think the lip balm is the best part of the beauty bag! So glad to see that you did a review on it. Also, I didn't know there was supposed to be a nail polish! Oh well :(

    ReplyDelete
  6. I just got mine today! Same contents as everyone else, but my Revlon card didn't have a sample on it? Weird. (I thought it was weird it was just a random card, now I at least know there was supposed to be something on it!) Anyway, I absolutely love the lip balm so far, and I'm excited to try the Fekkai hair products tomorrow morning! The makeup bag is super-cute, too.

  7. I did! I did! I always love getting free stuff and I love the bag. I'm looking forward to trying the lip balm and will report back. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I got mine yesterday and my contents were exactly the same - even down to the shade of lipstick.

    And yeah, Oyku, I thought I remembered seeing that a nail polish would be in there too...hmmm Still, I'm happy with everything I got and can't wait to use them all.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I got the same items. That bag is cute! I'm already in love with the Colorburst sample. Good thing there are coupons in there too.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh my goodness I'm excited to see that they've sent these out already! I've been away from my mailbox for a week now so I can't wait to get back and see if I got one...

    ReplyDelete
  11. I haven't gotten mine yet but I'll be looking out for it! I hope it comes soon. The last time Rite Aid had the glam camp bags, I received mine months later than everyone else.... Let's hope that doesn't happen again :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Got mine today, too! It's identical. I LOVE the bag! It doesn't match my purse (betcha can guess what color the purse is), but it'll fit in it well, so I'll use it, anyway. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I really hope I get mine soon! I signed up for it when everyone else did. :) I think I'm mostly excited about the coupons and the bag (I'm a major couponer). If you haven't heard of hip2save.com you should check it out. Really shows how to get great deals at the drugstores on beauty stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I got my bag today too! It's the exact same. I'm very happy thought great stuff for FREE! I'm loving the coupon booklet especially. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Waiting ... anxiously...!!! Hope it will come tomorrow...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I got mine in the mail yesterday. I think the makeup bag is really cute. :) But, what really irked me is that my ColorBurst gloss sample literally had nothing in it... o.0 It wasn't open or anything, there just was no product in the little sample packet. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I got mine!! Same products as the pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm still waiting i did it on my phone said it was all set crossing my fingers

    ReplyDelete
  19. wow, everyone's getting theirs~I still havent receive mine yet. I hope I get it!! Cant wait to try the Neutrogena lip balm that you reviewed!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I got mine too and it's the same as the picture up there. Excited to try the lip balm!! btw, I think everyone was expecting nail polish because there was a picture of it on the sign up page. Any of those items that weren't given as samples, we received coupons for in the little booklet.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I did get mine yet, anxiously waiting!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I got mine today as well! I had almost completely forgotten about it until I saw the box from Target in my mailbox today... Already tried the lip balm and the lotion... I love them both! Especially the lip balm! and the coupons were great and there are some that will most definitely be put to use! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm out of town so I don't know if I got mine yet, but I can't wait to force my bf to check for me!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I signed up for one about two minutes after you posted about, haha! I don't know if I made the list or not. The balm would be nice to try, but knowing that there's no nail polish in it, it might not be such a bad thing if someone else gets my bag.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I got mine today too! I had all the same items except my shampoo was for fine hair, not color treated hair. I don't remember if they asked what kind of hair I had...if not, they're psychic because I DO have fine hair! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Got mine today! :)
    Same products except for the shampoo (mine was for curly hair)
    Beyond excited to try them out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I got mine today as well, and it had the same exact things in my bag too. It was an awesome freebie deal. I loved the lip balm, smells great too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh nooo...I haven't gotten my beauty bag :( That's a lot of samples and the bag looks really cute! I can't wait to get mine!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Time to stalk my mail box!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I got mine today! And it's pretty much the same things :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Still waiting on mine, and looking forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hopefully mine comes soon! I'm not really worried (yet) because mail usually takes awhile to get where I live. I can't believe they included a full size lip balm!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Have not received mine yet, but looking forward to it. Also,Thanks so much for letting us know to sign up for it on the target site. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. : )

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been hearing that the bags have been coming in. Yeah, to be honest, I am a little disappointed, but not really because it was free! Funny thing, right after I read this post, I was reading another blogger's post and an advertisement showed up on the right side featuring the exact bag that was given away! It actually made me sadder because in the picture there are SO many goodies! Seems like they had advertised that there would be a nail polish, a Suave sample of some sort, and even a mascara as well! Oh well. The make-up pouch is worth $6 or so alone. I went to Target and recognized it in the cosmetics aisle. But can't complain if it's free, right?!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haven't gotten mine yet. So anxious! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  36. I haven't received mine yet! i can't wait to get it- it looks awesome!

    love your blog, following you now :)

  37. Yay, I got mine in the mail yesterday afternoon! I got the curly hair shampoo, which works out perfectly because I have curly hair! The lotion is great, absorbs fast and leaves a soft feel without being greasy! Semi beach scent.
    The bag itself is worth $5.99+$25 coupons+$2.70 lip balm +$1 in other samples= around $35 value!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I got mine yesterday too. The bag + the coupons = SCORE!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Got mine yesterday too! Everything is the same - love the freebies and the coupons - AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I got mine! Identical. Already used a bunch of coupons! And of course I stacked them!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I haven't gotten my bag yet but I'm patiently awaiting it...there were a few glitches on the site when I signed up so I hope it went through...it said it did so maybe I'll receive it this week....

    ReplyDelete
  42. I got mine in yesterday......and I am so excited about everything! I love the lip balm and the new spring line Sonia K. cosmetic bag! Way to go Target!~

    ReplyDelete
  43. I got mine! Thanks for letting us know about it. Love this blog!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am loving the lip balm too! I didnt think I would and I do! Anyway if you see how neatly packed everything was inside the makeup bag, Target people probably couldn't fit the nail polish! LOL. Still getting this in the mail totally brightened my day!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I just got mine yesterday, too! I thought it was a box of checks, so I was REALLY excited to find that it was something way more fun than that LOL.

    All my products were identical, too, with a shampoo for curly hair (mine's straight, but who cares ... shampoo is shampoo to me, and it'll get used!).

    Thank you, G, so much for the heads up! I'd never have known about it had it not been for you :-)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I received mine yesterday and the items were the same as everyone else's. I'm a lip balm junkie, so I can't wait to give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Tried the Fekkai shampoo and conditioner samples this morning... I have thick, frizzy, curly hair, so I have to be careful about the hair products I use, but these didn't seem to cause any problems for me! They smell lovely, too!

    ReplyDelete
  48. LOL, side note, please ignore my hair in my icon, it was one of the few days I've straightened my hair in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I got my bag on Monday! I do have the same contents as everyone else. I'm happy to get the coupons as well.

    ReplyDelete
  50. WOW! Ladies! I'm so thankful for all the good feedback! I'm so happy that we all seem to be getting the same items, and that most of you are very happy with your packages. I haven't received mine yet, but I'll definitely let you know when I do. And I hope you all love that lip balm as much as I do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I got mine today too. I was actually excited to check the mail for once! Mine had all the same items and I got the fine hair shampoo which is perfect because I've been wanting to try it out. Also, I LOVE the Neutrogena lip balm.

    ReplyDelete
  52. XD Yup, just got Mine or actually my mom did first... ^^; Apparently she likes opening my mail. *sigh*

    Anyways, My bag came with every thing you had gotten. My Favorite would have to be the bag or lip balm. The first time I used it, I Was Madly addicted. 8D Plus the Bag is Great considering I've been needing a makeup bag for my purse for awhile.

    THANK you SO much for giving us the inside scoops on everything. <3

    ReplyDelete
  53. I haven't gotten mine yet. :<
    I'm surprised they got them out so fast! Usually that stuff takes forever. I really want to try the lip balm!

    But what happened to the Olay serum and stuff? Is that in a little sample packet or something? I really wanted to try that. :P

    Maybe these are just the first wave of them and other ppl will get there later w/ possibly different items?

    Either way...I want mine soon! lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I got mine! Mine is identical to the picture, except the pantene shampoo is a different kind. (for curly hair). I'm loving the lip balm so far! Plus the bag is sooo cute!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I got mine yesterday. The same products in the picture. I haven't tried anything yet but will report back on the lip balm later.

    I think the picture they had up when we signed is just what they used in the planning phase of this promotion. But when it got to the excution phase they had to use different products so we could all get the same things.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I was just thinking today while reading some of the posts that I wished I had remembered to sign up for this promotion -- then, lo and behold, I arrive home this evening and find a nice little box from Target in my mailbox. LOL! That's how you know you are a cosmetics/free promotions addict. My bag is identical to everyone else's, and the coupons are great! I see there's one for Cover Girl, and this week, there's a 10% off sale on the Lip Perfection lipsticks that are getting rave reviews. I picked up three of them last night. I guess it's time for a return trip, lol. Thanks again, G!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yep. Thanks for letting us know!
    Actually, the only reason I signed up was because they said there would be a nail polish sample and I wanted to see what that looked like. But I am content with the lip balm and bag.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Got mine, same as everyone else but shampoo for colored hair. That was really fast!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I got mine in Buffalo NY today!

    Thanks again for the heads up! Target is definitely going to be getting some of my beauty business with those coupons.

  60. i signed up for a bag, but didn't get one yet. is there any way to tell if maybe they had all been spoken for by the time i signed up?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Got mine yesterday, looks identical. What a nice freebie!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. I received mine yesterday! Thanks so much for the tip, you are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I got mine yesterday, and I'm in the Charlotte metro area.

    Mine is exactly the same as pictured, but I got the Fine hair shampoo. Unfortunately, my hair is exactly the opposite of fine, so the shampoo made my hair rather voluminous. Not that I need any help in that department....

    ReplyDelete
  65. I got mine yesterday. I love the lip balm so far! And I like that the Target coupons say limit one manufacturer *and* one Target coupon per item- hooray for stacking coupons, and saving!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I just got mine in today and everything is identical to Robbin's!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I still don't have mine yet, I hope to get it soon. The little cosmetic bag looks cute.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I recieved my bag of goodies in the mail just the other day and it is exactly like the picture posted above. i see some have mentioned there was supposed to be a nailpolish included? i don't remember any mention of that when i sent away for this. i've tried the lip balm and while it doesn't do much for my super chapped lips, it sure does make them shiny and glossy! :D and i just tried the shampoo which btw smells wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  69. still havnt gotten mine yet... T_T

  71. I didn't mean to delete my comment

    Just got mine today. It has every thing that Robin's did. The Pantene shampoo I got is for Curly hair, which is WONDERFUL, since I have curly hair.
    The bag seemed pretty full, not sure how they would have fit the mascara or nail polish in it. That might be why they were not in there.
    I was so excited when I got the mail today. Man, I hit the jack pot today. I got three different samples in the mail. This bag (with all the goodies in it), kitty food sample and Root Awakening samples.
    You gotta love free stuff and when it comes with coupons - WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I got mine on Friday..April 1st! It was a great April Fool's day filled with goodies! ;) My bag is exactly the same as what everyone else got. I love, love the lippy! It is my new bedtime chapstick! :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I finally got mine today! I got the same stuff except I was sent shampoo for curly hair.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I finally got my beauty bag today April 5th. I'm so excited! I love samples and the coupon booklet!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Got my bag yesterday, and everything was the same as the pic, except I didn't get the gloss sample, and I got shampoo for fine hair, which is good, as my hair is very fine.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I got mine a couple days ago- everything BUT the Revlon sample and worse, no Neutrogena lipbalm which was the one thing I really wanted to try! :( everything in mine was hair stuff so I got some Fekkai shea butter shampoo&cond packets instead I guess. Still, it was free & the bag itself is really nice. I didn't realize it would be a nice Sonia Kasuk one!
