Target Haul - NYX, Revlon & Essence

Dear Target,

I love you. No honestly, when it comes to makeup your deals are starting to rival Priceline's, not to mention the fact that you now have American brand NYX (excellent strategic decision on your behalf by the way...I certainly make the special effort to go to a Target store for brands Essence and NYX). Recently I went for a bit of a wander around in the hopes of picking up some cosmetics...and I did. This is what I bought:

Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Guava
So remember when I was in Tasmania and I visited your store and found these wonderful wonderful bargains? Well you didn't tell me that you have just as amazing ones in Adelaide too! In Tasmania I grabbed a Revlon top speed polish in a gorgeous red shade called Fire and I adored it and decided I needed more from that range. Luckily for me, today I found another stunning shade - Guava - that was also a top speed polish...and get this, it was only $3! Amazing!

Essence Clear Lash and Brow Gel
So this isn't overly exciting, because, well, it's a clear gel...but this is the third or fourth one I've gone through this year and it's an everyday staple a girl's just got to have.

Essence Colour and Go Polish in Do You Speak Love?
After spotting this amazing ox blood shade on Mateja's blog, I decided that I needed to buy a completely seasonally inappropriate polish because it was just beautiful. My favourite nail polish shade is red too, and upon discovering that I had nothing like it I figured it was an absolute crime not to own this shade. So, here I am, holding a polish of wonderful quality that cost only $2.75.

NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Natural
I have wanted this forever. FOREVER. The only reason I never purchased it was because I was too stingy to pay for postage from America (which always turned out to be more than the actual blush itself). Of course, upon its arrival at Target I knew it would be mine. Normally I wait for sales but I was so darn excited I forked out $11.95 for this gorgeous cream blush. How very exciting!

NYX Soft matte lip cream in Istanbul
So apparently the cream blush wasn't enough...If I'm honest with you though, the soft matte lip creams are also products I have had my eye one for so long now. Istanbul seemed like the most beautiful shade ever so I picked it up for $12.95. It's not super expensive but I've become accustomed to paying minimal prices for everything ($3 polishes and $5 lipsticks!) so this was a big deal! You had better be good, matte lip cream!

Summer sandals
Last but not least I tried on this lovely pair of white sandals because I own no summer shoes whatsoever and loved the look of them. For only $14, I'm really happy with my purchased.

So there you have it...see how awesome you are Target? I'll definitely be coming back!

    1. I think it is so exciting that Target has Nyx! Of course, everything is more expensive than it is online but you can swatch it and you don't have to pay for postage so I guess that evens it out a little!

  3. I'm yet to check out the NYX stand (been busy with exams and assessment!), and sadly I don't think it is coming to my local Target, only to the city store :( Which is SUPER annoying! Regardless I'll be glad to see it in person. Excited to read your review on the matte lip cream!

  6. Target's the best! I wish my Target would sell essence! The matte lip creams are pretty nice, but I can't imagine paying $12 for one!! It was only $5 here in the US!

  12. I totally understand what you meant by forking out that price for the Nyx lip cream, I've also been so accustomed to only paying sale prices on things that even though the full price of $12.95 is not terribly expensive, it still seems pricey to me because of all the bargain prices that I usually get things for. Let me know how you go with the lip cream as I'd like to buy one too. I wanted to purchase the Australis Velour Lips but I heard a lot of people say it's quite drying on the lips (well...it is a matte lip cream, haha) and I already have constant chapped lips so don't want a product to be the cause of my dry lips again!

    1. Oh yeah! Even though $13 isn't super expensive it certainly feels like it after having bought everything on sales! So far I love love love the lip cream, however it is ridiculously drying and certainly accentuates any dry patches you have :(

    2. Oh no =| Thanks for that, though. I think I should just steer clear of any matte lip creams in general, haha.
