Last week I posted on Instagram that for one day only on Tuesday June 28th, Target was having a 20% off all cosmetics, beauty, personal care and sun care. I was able to go in store and order some items online that my store didn’t have. #iloveagoodsale
I just wanted to make a quick post about some of the things I picked up, some of them were repeats and some of them I have never tried. The repeats included the real techniques brushes- I ordered the powder, face setting, eye shader, brow, and expert face brush online and at a great price before the 20%- much cheaper than ulta where I usually buy them. For example, the expert face brush (my favorite for foundation so I got another) was $5.49 + 20% off = $4.40 compared to ulta.com = $8.99. #score #didisayiloveagoodsale. I also repurchased the NYX contour wonderstick but in Universal instead of light for $6.49 + 20% off= $5.20 compared to ulta.com= $11.99. #yay
The items I’m in the midst of trying are the two primers, NYX Angel Veil and Revlon Photoready Primer. I might do a comparison of these with some higher end primers that are popular such as Hourglass’ mineral primer.
The two Shea Moisture lipsticks are in maple (nude) and berry, these are so pretty with a creamy texture and satin finish, they also don’t make my lips peel which most drugstore lippies do. #yuck. I also was intrigued with the press about the new Maybelline baby lips in “my pink” which is a pH type product giving you your perfect baby pink lip. It is in fact moisturizing and does change your lips to a wearable baby pink with the feeling of wearing a balm. This could be a less expensive replacement for the Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink which runs $33 – ouch. Maybelline Baby Lips my pink is $3.49 – yay!
As I mentioned in my 101 Eyeshadow post, I was planning on getting the Covergirl TruNaked eye palette in Goldens so what better time than with 20% off! I heard the NYX microbrow was fairly similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz and I also heard that the target up & up brand made some good makeup brushes so I picked up the concealer set to try.
Ok I think that’s all of it! I did take the elf prism eyeshadow palette back as I was not impressed with the colors or the formula. Anything you would have picked up that I didn’t? Want a review of anything? #pleaseshare!
Also the July Target boxes are out, there are 2 this month at $7 each. (2nd pic) #getonthat #dontmissout #alreadyordered
