(SOLD OUT) Target April 2016 Beauty Box is Live!

UPDATE: This box is now sold out. If you click the link below, the "add to cart" box is now grayed out and it won't allow you to click on it. It looks like this box sold out at around 8:30AM Pacific this morning (4/4) which is a new record--the March box sold out at 10AM Pacific, which was a record at that time. Congrats to everyone who got one! Also, I want to mention that I've been covering these boxes for many years now (actually, from the very start back when they were "bags" instead of boxes) and until recently, they were never THIS popular. I certainly hope that Target will take this into consideration for future boxes and increase the amount of units available, so that more of us have a chance to get one.

ALSO: I know that many of you signed up for my text alerts prior to this box going live. I hope that helped enable you to get a box this time around!

It's live! Grab it HERE before it sells out! It's $7 + free shipping. Get an extra 5% off with your Target REDcard.

PS: This blog post went live at 12:15AM Pacific on 4/4. If it sells out by the time you read this, please know that I posted about it as soon as I saw it was live. Good luck, everyone!

  3. Got mine, also at 12:15am. I am really hoping the lipstick is a deep colour like the picture implies.
    That Cerave sample was in the last Walmart Beauty Box, this may be the first time they beat Target at something!

  4. I GOT IT!!! I live in New York & can't sleep so I checked my phone. That EXACT moment your text showed up announcing the box went live. This is the first time I was able to get one. Thanks so much!

    1. Every beauty box I've purchased with a lipstick gave a full size. The foundations are usually sample cards, but harder to do that with a lipstick. :)

  10. I feel the past 2 months' boxes were much better! If you zoom in you'll see you're getting 7 simple wipes so the lipstick appears to be the only full size product. I still got it though, I think the $3 coupon makes it worth it for me and also I love the CeraVe balm and have a full size, travel size will be great for on-the-go! Looks like you were right about the on-sale date! I can't believe people resell the boxes on eBay for up to 2x! I'm also getting my first FabFitFun and PopSugar boxes... April showers bring spring subscription boxes apparently! Lol.

  12. Breakdown of Contents, as Descried from Product Photo:
    (prices rounded)

    $4.50 Pack of Simple Cleansing Wipes (Target price, $6 at Ulta)
    $4.80 Laneige Water Bank Gel Mask ($24 for 5 sheets)
    $6.00 Colorlicious Lipstick
    $0.65 Pantene AIRSpray 1 oz ($5 currently at Target for 14 oz)
    $2.00 Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Lotion 2 fl oz*
    $1.25 Marlowe Body Butter 1 oz ($8 for 10 oz)
    $6.00 Cerave Healing Ointment 2 oz* ($15 for 5 oz)
    $x.xx Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation single-use sample

    *I think that's a 2, not a 1; I can't zoom in any closer.
    **The volume isn't visible in the product photo, but the subtotal heretofore is $19, so if it were only 1 oz, based on my calculations, either the value of the Target coupon would be included in the reported product value, which hasn't been the case thus far, or, perhaps, the Simple wipes and hair spray value would be based on higher list prices.

    Obviously, contents subject to change, and one may also factor in the assumed $3.00 off $15 coupon.

  13. Sorry, the sample hairspray would be worth $0.19, based on $5 for 14 oz...but I just now checked, and the full-size volume is actually 7oz, so it's $0.38. Screwed up twice there.

  14. Phew! 4 hours later and it's still available

  15. Thanks for all the coverage of the Target beauty boxes. I just checked the link and it is not sold out yet (7:26 am east coast time ) but I decided to pass on this months box. There is nothing in the box that really excites me, and I already spent more than I planned for the Ulta 21 days of beauty (hehe). Demand is greater than supply it seems so good luck to everyone else !

  16. They still had some at 7am CST ordered one for me and one for my mom

  17. Got one! It's 8:10 on the East coast so I was happy they still had them. This is my first one. Thanks for the heads up, G!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Messaging idea was awesome, got my first box! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  19. I decided to skip it at 7am...but then thought about it more and decided the travel sizes are perfect to toss in my summer outing bag and I'm still looking for a mask I like, so I went for it at 9:30. ;) I'm hoping to get a more muted lipstick. They are always too harsh for me.

  20. There's only 1 cruelty free product in that box, so I'm out. :-(

    1. Sorry, but I have no way of knowing if you signed up correctly. Maybe try again, following the details in my post? I know that MANY people signed up and got the text last night, so I know it did go out. :)

  26. Is this box not one of the popular ones? I'm able to add it to my cart at 11:15 EST. I already bought one at 5:00 am this morning so I think that I'm okay with one box.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1024 CST - looks like they're gone. :(

  28. I got one right after it went live. Thanks for the link, G! I had to use my phone bc my tablet wouldn't allow me to buy it. I have been trying to get my hands on this box for 7 months with no luck. And last month I bought one and had a confirmation email, but then Target cancelled it hours later. When I called they basically said I was SOL. :(

  29. Got it at 6:45 Central time!

  30. I'm so glad I was able to purchase this last night. It looks like it's sold out now - 9:09 AM Pacific Time.

  31. Btw, did you see the Mario badescu is on Haute Look?

  32. My daughter and I we're talking about the difference between Walmart box and the target box I really think that the Walmart spring box is better then the target box. The major difference Is Target has a better marketing strategy. I believe we really want it because it's so hard to get. Where as Walmart everyone can get it. Of course my daughter thinks the total opposite. Who do you think is right?

    1. Walmart has a beauty box????
      Where have I been

    2. To answer both of your questions:

      Amber: yes, the Walmart beauty box is a season box (one box for spring, summer, winter, and fall). It is free, but you pay $5 for shipping. You're auto-billed each season when the new box ships.

      This box debuted in fall 2014 and it is still available to this day. I posted in the fall of 2014 about it here:

      http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2014/09/walmart-beauty-box.html

      After I posted, there was some drama about the site possibly not being secure, and then some readers were apparently charged multiple times on their credit cards. I had to do a follow-up after my original post, which you can see here:

      http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/2014/09/update-on-walmart-beauty-box.html

      It sounds like all of the wrinkles that occurred during the initial launch have no been ironed out, and I have NOT heard anything negative about this box since those first blog posts.

      Candie: it's totally a matter of personal preference, if you ask me. The Walmart boxes seem to carry a lot of P&G, Unilever, Colgate, and Johnson & Johnson brands (Dove, Aveeno, Colgate, Gilette, et al) whereas the Target boxes carry popular mass brands like that, but also Target-exclusive brands and higher end brands like Leneige, that I am personally more attracted to. I do like that you don't have to "compete" for the Walmart boxes since once you're signed up, you're guaranteed a box, but they're roughly the same price (although the Target boxes do sometimes go for $7 instead of $5). I think that if you want the sure thing, and you're attracted to the types of brands that Walmart carries, go for the Walmart box. If you're willing to roll the dice and try to get the Target boxes when they launch, and you're also attracted to the brands that Target tends of put in their boxes, then go for the Target box.

      Another thing to consider: You don't get to choose with the Walmart box. Once you're signed up, you get what you get. With the Target box, you have a few days to decided if you want to try and get it. Hope that helps!

    3. You know, your comments have made me think that I should do a bigger blog post about the Target box vs. the Walmart box. I'll do that today since I received a great pic of the contents of the Spring Walmart box from another reader, and I was planning on posting about that anyway. Thanks! :)

  33. 1 P.M. EST and it appears to be done. Doesn't say sold out but it won't let you add it and it says shipping is unavailable. Just fyi /:

  35. Thank you all SO MUCH for the comments and updates. You have no idea how much I appreciate your willingness to share here and keep us all posted on the status of this box. I just updated my blog post.

    Also, congrats to everyone who was able to get one this time around!!

  36. Yay...I got one! I missed out on the March box so I'm very happy I got this one! Congrats to the people who got the April one, and the ones who missed out...there's always next month! :)

  37. Excited to receive mine. First time I was actually able to get it before it sold out.

    ReplyDelete
  38. So happy I signed up for your text alerts! I snagged it right away!

  39. I was there at midnight Pac time and it wasn't until about 12:12 that it showed up. Then Target was panicking and the pages kept getting weird. But I got 2! I wish they had done amen's one. Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My comments NEVER show up on here? but, I got mine in the mail today....and though I love my purple covergirl lipstick...it's in the shade divine wine and I cannot find it anywhere else! It's like this color doesn't exist except in this box? Anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi everyone, just got mines today and 2 out of the 8 items are missing. Did anyone else have this problem or did I just got a dud. :-( I don't even know who to complain to, I don't think there's anything that could be done.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I got mine Monday and got a very pretty medium pink lipstick from Cover Girl. The color is Temptress Rose and a really good pink for me. The hairspray will go into my travel bag and the Simple wipes and sunscreen into my gym bag. My very happy.
