Everything in the box!

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Moisturizer ($1.86) Packed with shea butter and aloe vera, this moisturizer is great for giving the skin the hydration it needs while keeping it soft and smooth. The fragrance is soapy, and it’s fast absorbing.

The moisturizer has a creamy consistency which glides smoothly on the skin. It’s so light, there’s no greasy feeling at all. Also, you would only need to use a small amount at a time and your skin will be hydrated all day long.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XXL Lip Gloss in Pinkwell ($3.92) Next is a pink colored lip gloss that gives your lips shine and moisture. It can be worn alone or together with your favorite lipstick. I guess it’s called Pillow Plump here – or is it there? Whatever, it’s the same product.


There’s a tingle after application, but not too overwhelming. It has a chocolate cake flavor and adds a nice cushion to lips. Swatched below!

Sleek MakeUp Eye Shadow Palette In When The Sun Goes Down ($3.20) This eye shadow palette has cream, gold, and nude brown colors you can wear any time of the day. It’s quite versatile!

True to its name, the container looks sleek! It’s also compact and lightweight, making it so easy to stash in my make-up kit and bring wherever I go.

The palette has 12 teeny weeny cutesy wutesy colors you can mix and match for a different look every time.

I like the nude matte and shimmer shades from this palette, perfect for a subtle yet elegant look. Seriously though, these pans are TINY – smaller than a dime! It’s good for testing but as for usability, I pretty much just made a big mess and used half of it swatching!

Here are the swatches! On top is the lip gloss, followed by the eyeshadows. I used foam tip applicators for swatching and you can see it was super difficult to get the color.

Nature Inspired Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask ($3.36) This clay mask has amazing cleansing capabilities. It contains negatively charged ions that work like magnets, helping remove deep dirt hiding in the pores. The skin feels softer and smoother after each use.

No7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Mulitaction Serum ($4.16) Next item is an anti-aging and firming serum that can be used for both the face and the neck. It contains a unique skin fortifying complex including calcium, amino acids and ceramides which are essential in keeping the skin smooth and younger-looking. The formula is lightweight and moisturizing, and it smells great too!

No7 Airbrush Away Primer ($6.66) Formulated with hypo-allergenic ingredients, this primer makes the skin a smooth and soft canvas for makeup application. It makes fine lines and impurities disappear, minus the oily after effect.

With a nice combination of skin care and make-up items, I must say I’m pretty impressed with this box from Target. Although the items were mostly sample sizes, it’s still a great catch! And despite the miniscule sizes of the shadows, the other samples were full, and that made me super happy.The overall retail value is $23, which is three times more than the price of the box! It was definitely a win, and a super fun theme from Target!
