Unboxing: Target Fall 2014 Beauty Box (PS: It's Still Available for Purchase)

Back in the first week of October, I let you know that the Fall 2014 version of the Target Beauty Box was available for purchase. I know that many of you ordered the box at that time (so did I!) so I thought it might be fun to post the contents of the box I received a few weeks ago, so that we can all compare. I think we all got the same items except for the L'Oreal gloss (the shade may vary).

NOTE: As of the time of this post, the Fall 2014 Target Beauty Box is still available for purchase HERE. It retails for $7 with free shipping.

Again, this box is still available for purchase as of the time of this post HERE. If you've been on the fence about getting it, I hope my unboxing helps you decide!

Did you order the Target Fall 2014 Beauty Box when I first posted about it? Did you get the same items in your box? If not, did you get a different shade of the L'Oreal lip color? I'd love to hear from you!

  1. Yes, I ordered 2 boxes. I received the ruby color in l'oteal. Not sure what to do with NYX in white color? Highlighter for brow?!

    1. NYX Milk is a popular shade to use for making other shadows much more vibrant. I don't like to use it as primer though, so I apply regular primer first, and then a thin layer of Milk. Then when I apply my powder shadows (especially brights) it REALLY makes those types of colors pop. Hope that helps! :)

    2. Another use I have found for Milk is to lightly line the inner rim of my lower lashes--this brightens the white of my eyes. I also use almond (Jordana or Rimmel) for a more subtle look.

    3. use milk as a base for eyeshadow

    4. Nude ballet is a fabulous shade in that line. i literally have like 20 extraordinaire glosses. probably one of my fave glosses from the drugstore!!

  2. I got the exact same colors. I gave the hair spray away - I never use hair spray, haha. Haven't had a chance to try the dry shampoo yet, nor the BB cushion (still experimenting with the cover girl 3-in-1 foundation you rave about - liking it!). The NYX pencil is kind of sticky, but I'm trying to give it a chance. And the lip color wasn't my shade - I traded it for a mascara :)

    1. That's actually what I like about the NYX pencil, because it really makes powder shadows adhere to the lid. That stickiness is good in that case! :)

    2. Point taken. I'll keep experimenting :)

  3. I am very happy with the contents, great value for the price. Thank you G for letting me know about it. I used the BB creme today, for the first time, so far so good, as I have extremely oily skin. I used the shade medium, which was a tiny bit too dark, but after setting it with powder and highlighting, it looked fine. The puff it comes with is useless, way too small to work with, so I ended up dipping in my beauty blender, and that worked well. Love the lip color too, I think the nude gloss will work with all complexions.

    1. You're so welcome! Good idea about the BB cream! I'll be sure to try a sponge or brush when I test it out. :)

  6. I received all the same but i got the Blushing Harmony lipcolor! Lol when I opened it I said awwww I hope G gets another color, because she already has this one! I am happy you got another shade that you (hopefully) don't already have :) I can't wait to try the lipcolor-- I love the dry shampoo but haven't tried anything else yet! I am tempted to buy another box now... lol :)

    1. Oh my gosh, how sweet of you to think of me!! *hugs* I was soooo relieved when I saw that I didn't get the one I already have! The drugstore gods were on my side that day! Lol. And I'm so glad you're liking the box, too! :)

    2. I thought the same thing because that's the one I got too :) which is lovely. I thought this was a great box at a steal and everything is useful, unlike the Walmart version which was a dissapointment compared to this one IMO.

    3. Blushing Harmony is another FAVE color of mine from that line!!

  7. That's a great deal for $7. You'd pay $7 to $10 alone for the L'Oreal lip color, depending on the store. I'm inclined to order, and hope I get a red or nude lip color. I don't use a lot of hairspray, but a travel size version is handy on the job, for the odd touch-up.

  8. has anyone else tried the foundation? I really like it. I found that pressing it into the skin is more effective than using a foundation brush. I tried it first on non moisturized just toned skin (I like to give it the most difficult task first)....lovely. lasted all day. Next day i used a bit of primer and it went on like silk and lasted all day. No powder. The coverage is good. I'm 58 with an oily t-zone and I live in FL where the humidity is intense.

  9. Just wanted to say thanks for this blog post, I ordered a box yesterday and can't wait to get it. This looks like a great deal, and I love getting treats in the mail. :)
