When it comes to Target, their beauty section is becoming equal with the likes of Ulta and Sephora, bringing mid-range makeup and drugstore brands to one easily shopable spot. Walking down those brightly lit aisles oftentimes proves to be dangerous, where you take your cart down the lanes just to see what's available, and find yourself stocking your basket with more lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes then you possibly need. The store knows the hold it has over us, which is why it's no surprise that Target is selling themed beauty boxes now, and finding new ways to tempt us.
Clocking in at seven dollars a piece, the bundled gifts are affordable as they are pretty. Playing on our love of subscription boxes and the anticipation of getting a mystery package in the mail full of products someone else handpicked, these beauty boxes use that same idea without the subscription commitment.
You can also choose through several different themes, meaning you don't end up with products you don't normally bother with. For example, if your main concern right now is bringing some TLC back to your winter-ravaged hair, there is a "Define & Shine" pick that's full of haircare products you can play with and sample. Check out the selections below, and get excited for your next trip to Target!
