Humans are funny. We spend hours watching strangers on a screen no larger than our hand. We like, comment and judge the 15-second clips or a perfect square of their life. I’m not sure if it’s driven by the need for connection, the need for consuming, or just plain curiosity. We are notoriously nosy and oddly enough, I thought you might want to know what I bought at Target last night.
Last night, I negotiated some free time, skipped out on 2 out of 3 bedtimes and made my way to Target. Two hours later, I didn’t even make it through every aisle. I did pick up some products that I’m pretty excited about it so maybe you will be too!
I am suffering from dry, chapped lips something fierce already this “winter” [technically still fall]. I’m usually a basic balm kind of girl and rarely opt for a full lip look in my day-to-day. However, I think adding a little color will help minimize this whole “corpse” appearance I’m working with.
As every girl does, I dumped my beauty haul on my bed, feverishly unwrapped the packaging and applied it all before hopping in the shower before bed.
The Lip Soother [in Shine 30] is 20 spf and goes on cool to soothe chapped puckers. It adds a little bit of tint and a lot of hydrating shine.
The Revitalizing Balm also has a tin to it and there is a greater variety of options to choose from [think 4 instead of 2]. I bought the Fresh Plum sheer tint and it’s actually a pretty pronounced.
I gotta say, I think I’m gonna like this stuff.
Remember when I used a micro-blade roller for a month and my forehead lines were significantly reduced? Yeah, I’ve been known to try something and quit it before. My lines are now visible with a
You know what got me? One sentence: “Younger looking skin in just one week”. I’ll happily be the judge of that. I painstakingly rolled my face with a needle for 30 days so I think I can muddle through a week of rich and nourishing Retinol-A.
It had me at glow, and also the $4.00 trial size price point [in-store only]. I like when I can test something without fully committing. It’s not the most financially-savvy purchase considering the full bottle is nearly 3 ounces more glow for only $11 more. Desperate times in drab skin does not make for a rational shopper. Stay tuned for my glowing review.
My mom will be so happy the next time I see her considering she’s mentioned my need for a root touch up the last three times I’ve seen her. I am incredibly loyal to my hairdresser since finding her last year. Megan at Hair Studio and Company is amazing at blending a balayage and insanely affordable. However, finding time to not only get to the salon, but also to sit down long enough for a color boost is a time-management challenge.
Of course, I sprayed the Light Golden Brown Root Cover Up on my 6 day old dirty and brazen roots at 9:00 p.m. last night. If there was a soundtrack playing in the background it would have rolled out “I feel glorious, glorious” by Macklemore. For $10, this will do just fine until my February appointment!
If you are considering a purchase, I could have gone one shade darker to match more accurately. Be sure to check the color scale on the back of the packaging for best matching.

You guys, this is what happens when you aimlessly wander Target child-free. You have this time to think about stained lips, glowing skin, and wrinkles. I’ll be damned if I didn’t have a curling iron in my hand at one point too.
Target is offering a $10 gift card when you spend $40 on beauty products which is equally awesome and bumming me out since I definitely bought enough to qualify last night.
