Unboxing: Target November 2016 Beauty Box (Now on Sale for 30% off + New L'Oreal Box)

Lots to cover in this post so let's get right into it!

I ordered the Target November 2016 Beauty Box when it first went live, and at the time it was $10 + free shipping. It is still available, but thanks to readers Katie, Joisu, and Tifa for letting me know that this box is now on sale for 30% off. You can get it HERE for $7 + free shipping (limit 1 per customer).

I snapped some pics on my phone (sorry for the low quality of these photos but it's a crazy time of year and I'm doing things as quickly as I can right now) so that you can get a closer look, if you're on the fence about this box:

I didn't photograph it, but this box also came with the usual $3 off $15 coupon that you can use toward any online or in-store beauty purchase. The expiration date on this coupon is 12/3/16, so fingers crossed that Target offers 25% off beauty between now and then (they usually run that sale for one day only before the holidays) so we can stack that coupon with the sale! UPDATE: thanks to several of you here and social media for confirming that the 25% off beauty promo at Target will be on 11/22!

  • Full-size L'Oreal Voluminous Primer Base ($5.99 at Target)
  • Full-size Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black ($5.99 at Target)
  • Deluxe sample W3LL People Bio Brightener Cream in Universal Glow (I'm guessing that this is 0.5 oz. although there is no size listed on the pot)

As you can see, the L'Oreal and Revlon products are $6 each, so you're almost covering the entire price of the box with just one of those products. 

  • Travel size Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream (0.4 oz)
  • Laneige Water Bank Soothing Mask (one full-size sheet mask)

  • Travel size L’Oréal Advanced HairCare Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo (1.7 oz.)
  • Travel size HASK Keratin Protein Soothing Deep Conditioner (1.75 oz.)

I thought this box was worth it at $10, but now I think it's REALLY worth it at $7, considering that this is basically the price of the L'Oreal mascara primer alone. I have been dying to try this primer since I love the Lancome mascara primer. L'Oreal owns Lancome, as most of you know, so I'm hoping it's a good dupe.


Thanks so much to my dear friend Amber (Beauty Junkies Unite blog) for sharing the above pic and info about this one. There's a new L'Oreal Women of Worth box on Amazon and it retails for $24.99 HERE (free shipping for Prime members).

This box includes four full-size products:

  • Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Nude ($14.99 at Target)
  • Voluminous Primer Mascara ($5.99 at Target)
  • Voluminous Original Mascara ($5.99 at Target)
  • Colour Riche Pocket Palette in French Bisque ($8.99 at Target)

Adding up the retail prices of these items if you were to buy them individually at Target, it comes out to $35.96. So that's a savings of $10.97.

Thanks again, Katie, Joisu, and Tifa, for the hot tips about the beauty box sale, and thanks Amber for the info about the Amazon box!

  1. Target will have 25% off Beauty with promo code: BEAUTY on November 22nd.

  2. Target has 25% off beauty on Nov. 22 with promo code I believe.

  3. Target also has a $10 Target Wellness Box too

    1. Thanks! I posted about that one last week (or was it two weeks ago? I can't keep track anymore!) but I appreciate the tip so much! :)

    2. It's a different wellness box. I thought it was strange too. It came out almost right after the other one.

  4. Thank you! I just placed my order! I was going to skip this month but since I saw what you posted (30% off) so I was like why not just get it!

  5. Just saw the posting on Black Friday Ads - the Target 25% off Beauty Day from the 10 Days of Deals promotion is set for November 22.

  6. Target is doing a 25% off beauty & personal care, its on Tuesday 11/22.

  7. Thank you all SO much for the info on the 25% off sale! I updated my post and will update the round-up, as well! xoxo

  8. Thank you so much for the tip, just ordered the box!

    I got the Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Nude to try (BzzAgent) and I have to say, it was a huge disappointment. The colors immediately settled into lip lines and the only thing I really liked was the highlight. Bummer :(

  9. Thanks so much! Just placed my order. Haven't ordered one lately since I haven't been impressed, but this one looks great!

  10. Interesting that these usually sell out and this one didn't. I usually buy them and didn't buy this one because I wasn't crazy about the offerings and a couple are repeats. Hopefully they'll mix up the next one a bit.

  11. On Amazon, L'Oreal is also selling "Infallible Holiday Matte Gloss Trio Set". It looks like they're trying to branch out into holiday makeup gift sets.

  12. Damn, it's already gone! I wasn't too interested in it originally but $7 was too good to pass up!

  13. I ended up buying it the day it was released, and I hadn't bought one for months. I really like the Andalou products, and that it came with a small highlighter, a full-size lash primer and the eye pencil made it appealing. I know Laneige is popular but I am not too wild about their products. The products are too fragranced, and I'm kind of over those masks. (Too much work to unpeel and place just so. Give me some old-fashioned goop to spread all over my face!)

  14. I like the L'Oreal shampoo a lot and would consider a full size bottle, though it's hard for me to break away from my beloved Suave. The lash primer is only ok for me. I thought it made my eye lids feel heavy...Like I had on way too much mascara. It was nice that I only used one coat of mascara and my lashes were nice and separated but I think I would use this more if I am getting ready for a night out. I found the heavy feeling on my lashes distracting. That's the only things I have tried so far.
