Fall 2014 Target Beauty Box

In the past, Target offered a free seasonal beauty bag with some really nice samples. Recently, they began offering the Target Beauty Box as a one-time-purchase box. It looks like it will be available a few times a year for $7. I just received mine and wanted to tell you about it because it's still available and Target is offering free shipping on every order right now! (But be sure you go through Ebates- they offer 2.5% on Target purchases.)

Target Beauty Box
Price: $7 (one time purchase)
  • Elnett Extra Strong Hold Hairspray (value for 2.2 oz- $6.70)

  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil (value for .18 oz full-sized product- $4.50)

I came up with a value of about $32, and I'm super happy with this box. There was also a coupon for $3 off a $15 beauty purchase at Target, but they also printed that in this past Sunday's circular.
I have always wanted to try Elnett Hairspray, and can always use another dry shampoo. I will definitely use the eye pencil because I've been wanting to try highlight the inner corner of my eye, and this will be perfect for that. I am also excited to try the Laneige BB Cushion sample- I love that they included all three shades so I can try the shade that works best for me.
The only product I am a bit disappointed in is the L'Oreal lippie- the shade I received is Nude Ballet and I normally don't wear that shade of lip color. I did give it a try and I did like the formula though- it was really moisturizing, yet didn't run outside my lip line like most glosses do.
If you like sample boxes like me, this is a great one to try because there is no commitment since there is no subscription. It's also nice that you know what you are getting when you place your order!

How do you find out when the beauty box comes available?

I follow several beauty bloggers and I think it was who posted about this on facebook.
