(SOLD OUT) Target May 2016 Beauty Box is Live


UPDATE: well this is a new record. The May Target Beauty Box just sold out at around 7:30AM PST. The April box sold out at around 9AM PST, and the March box sold out at around 10AM PST. Congrats to everyone who snagged one this time around, and I promise to be awake next month at Midnight when that box goes live--apologies again for falling asleep last night and not getting this post up until 5:30AM PST this time around!

UPDATE #2: I'm leaving the link below on the off chance that it comes back in stock (it probably won't, but it doesn't hurt to try!).

It's live! CLICK HERE to purchase the May 2016 Target Beauty Box for $10 plus free shipping. Don't forget that you get an extra 5% off if you use your REDcard. Interesting that this is highest-priced box to date; they're usually $7 or $5. But if you buy 2, you will receive a $5 Target Gift Card. Also, if you still have your $3 off $15 coupon from last month's box, you can use it with this box if you buy two (thanks to everyone for that tip!). So if you buy 2 and use that coupon, you'll be paying $6 per box after the gift card deduction. Not bad!

If you want this one, DO NOT WAIT. The April Beauty Box sold out by around 9AM PST on the day it went live.

Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to let me know about this one--I apologize for getting this up so late--I fell asleep at about 10PM last night (it's 5:30AM PST as I write this).

  1. Yay! So glad I get your textes now.. Stop what I was doing and bought 2... I got the $5 gift card they are offering with $20 beauty purchase! Win win! I missed out on last month! Thanks for the updates! :)

  3. If you get two boxes you can use your $3 coupon from the last time and get a $5 gift card! That makes them about $6 each.

    1. Yes!!! I completely forgot to mention that and the gift card deal when I first posted (I was literally still half asleep! lol!). Just updated my post! xo

  4. I wonder if they are trying to match other subscription box prices, like Ipsy and Sephora. I still ordered one, though. Interestingly, the picture on the actual product page doesn't show the lipstick at all, but it's in the listed items.

    1. I'm guessing that they raised the price of this one because they're offering that $5 gift card when you spend $20. I have a feeling that if they don't have a gift card promo going next month, it will probably go back to $7 or $5, but who knows? :)

  5. Thanks for the reminder! I ordered mine (9:18 a.m. Eastern time). I'm curious about the two cleansers and always wanted to try the Egyptian Magic.

    1. You're so welcome, Heidi! And yes, I have been wanting to try Egyptian Magic too, for so long now! I was so surprised to see that packet since it wasn't in the teaser. Yay for both of us! :D

    2. Egyptian Magic has been one of my HG products for over a decade. Reasonably priced, lasts forever, natural ingredients, and useful for EVERYTHING.

      Delete
    3. I buy something from OneQueenBee on Etsy that has the same ingredients as Egyptian Magic at a fraction of the cost, so I'm curious to compare. (I happen to love the lower-cost version, though.)

  6. I was on the fence with this one just because I keep getting awful lip colors...but I really want to try the LeMatte so I guess I'm just crossing my fingers that it isn't an awful shade. I added a little extra and used my $3 coupon from the last box.

    1. I'm crossing my fingers for you too! If you've tried the Maybelline Color Blur matte lip pencils, they're VERY similar (not surprising since L'Oreal owns Maybelline). So if you like the Color Blur, I'm guessing you'll also like the Le Matte! :)

    2. The Le Matte lipsticks are actually pretty comfortable, and I am not a matte fan!

      Delete
    3. I agree, Sara! Not drying like some other mattes. :)

  7. Yay! I am on PST, and remembered just after waking up around 5:30 (and just a few min before your tweet/text)! Haha! Wonder when it exactly went live... Since last time it was midnight. A few observations: in the description, only the Le Matte lipstick is listed, and it isn't in the picture on the actual purchase page (it's the only item missing of the 9; it is pictured on the main "beauty box" page, though). Both Le Matte and La Lacque are featured in the full size products to purchase (as we saw the past few days). I am guessing we will get a Le Matte, but thought it was interesting it was left out of one (of two) photo(s). This is what my eyes start to notice after keeping them peeled for clues, haha!

    1. Ha! We were both early birds today. :)

      I am hearing from several readers that this box went live just a few minutes after Midnight PST. I am so mad at myself for falling asleep at 10PM last night, but you can't fight sleep sometimes--it always wins!

      Anyway, yes, I'm guessing we're getting a Le Matte and not a La Lacque, but you never know! I was also surprised to see the Egyptian Magic packet, since that brand wasn't even listed anywhere in the original teaser! Target...always keeping us on our toes. ;)

    2. Looks like it just sold out 10:30 EST. I had it in my cart and foolishly looked around a little at other items to get to $20 now its saying maximum quantity when I have zero now. Darn lol

      Delete
  8. Got it! Around 6:45 EST. First time ever I received an email from target about the box being live.

    1. Yay! And wow, I didn't get an email from Target about that!!

    2. Me too! I thought that was cool!

      Delete
    3. Interesting! I wonder how/why some people got emails? I have ordered a box through my same email with Target in the past (as I am sure G has).

  9. Crap, I saw the text and went right to the computer. I did not read the deets before I bought. I do have the 3.00 coupon and didnt use it. Crap.

    2. Hey Randi, I did the same thing so don't feel bad! I was lying in bed ordering this today (I'm on the East coast) and didn't want to waste any time so I didn't read the post either! :(

  10. They took them out of my cart as I went to check out. I'm so sad. ugh.

    1. So sorry!!!! And yep, it just sold out. :(

  11. Nevermind precious comment. I decided to try again and this time it let me purchase it. Maybe server was too busy.

    1. It did? I'm seeing it's sold out when I view on desktop, mobile, and also the Target app. Maybe you got lucky, or maybe it was a glitch. Hum....

      Delete
    2. I think it was a glitche. It let me check out etc but I never got a confirmation e-mail and I don't see it pending on PayPal. It would seem have to act really early to get these boxes.

  12. Yikes! I just got to my computer and it's already gone! Curses! I noticed this one is $10 this time. Why don't they just do a subscription box? They'd make a lot more money if we could all get in.
    oh I'm so disappointing :(

    1. I agree! Then I wouldn't have to set my alarm for 2AM (central time) on the first Monday of every month!

    2. I so agree! I don't know why they continue to frustrate/disappoint their customers this way.

  13. I snagged it. I checked as soon as I got up about 6am CT. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, I'm so bummed. Guess that's why I couldn't find it at 6am est... :(

    ReplyDelete
  15. I managed to snag one .. yippee !!!

    Monica.

  16. I set my alarm and got one at 6 am est. I decided to only one so others have a chance. So no Gift Card for me but that's totally OK!

  17. I think the reason they sold out so quickly this time is because of the $5 gift card deal and more people probably bought two, when they otherwise would've just bought one (especially if they also had the $3 coupon). I went to the website right around 2am cst when they went live to make sure I got one (I'm a night owl anyway ;). If they see there is enough interest they might consider doing a monthly subscription, but it takes so much effort to manage that I don't think Target would take on that expense, but who knows? Plus, personally, I like being able to choose if I want the box or not, and it gives everyone a chance to try to get one. Congrats to everyone who did this time around!

    1. I agree. I love being able to choose whether or not to get the box especially based on the "sneak preview!" I hope it doesn't always sell out this fast, though.

  18. I skipped this box :(, looking forward to the June box.

  19. I got in this month thanks to your text.

  20. I woke up at 6am EST to order "the Box" and then immediately went back to sleep. This was the 1st time I was able to get one, thanks to your message!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thank you so much for your texting option! I would have forgotten about the Target box this morning, had it not been for your text! Of course, I didn't read or think about the 2 boxes, get the gift card option, but... Happy day!

  22. you are so sweet to actually apologize for falling asleep like a normal human being. I, for one do not expect anyone to stay awake for ME. If I want something that badly I should stay awake or set an alarm. Don't think you have to do it for me, it makes me feel bad that someone else would think that's what I wanted. Thank youu for all that you do. This new alert thing is fantastic! Love you.
