The Monkey Is In.

So be prepared. Bring a banana.

I'm a writer of horror and dark fiction. I've been doing this since 1999 and believe me when I say, it's cheaper than therapy and safer for the world at large.

Target Beauty Box Summer 2015

Sorry I've been slacking in my cool shit reviews. I've been sick for 3 weeks! When I did my 3B review, the sinus infection hadn't kicked in full force so right after that, I was basically couch bound and extremely unmotivated.

But I'm back! And I have a handful of review posts I need to do but I'll try to spread them out a bit. The first one I want to do is the Target Beauty Box. Yep, they do one just like Walmart except the Target one is not on any kind of schedule I can figure out. You need to either constantly check their website or follow a blog that can give you a heads up on when the box will be available. And since I'm not Target's mom, I can't tell them to get it together.

After getting mine, though, they can be inconsistent all they want. The box costs $7 and according to the email they sent me (so I would link to their site and write a review), the value is $40. And I bet that's not far from the truth. This box was full of great stuff.

It comes in a sleek simple black box and the goodies inside are wrapped in red tissue paper (red and black - how can you go wrong?). I love that the card says, "Hello, Beautiful" on it. I actually put a hand on my chest and said, "aw!" But look at all this cool shit! I forgot to swatch the lipstick and nail polish but I can always do that in the future. The lipstick is a gorgeous red color that would look good on anyone. There was also a coupon to get $3 off a future purchase of the lipstick. Score!

I started using the Olay Regenerist Luminous eye cream a few days ago so I'll have to get back to you on how/if it works. It's a nice formula, though. A little goes a long way, as is the case with most eye creams. Today I used one of the Cutext nail polish remover pads. And it was awesome! I had on some Revlon gel nail polish and top coat and just one of those small pads took off everything (ooooh, yeah baby, take it ALL off). Though I've heard of the Fekkai brand, I haven't tried this hair cream yet because I'm still working with the one I got in my Ipsy back last month (or the month before). 

So, for $7, I'd say I got my money's worth in this box. If you want your own, check the Target website when you can. I'll also post a link to the blog I follow which might give you a leg on up getting your own. These sell out VERY VERY fast. And I can see why!  (I think this woman is in Michigan!)
