Small Target Haul!

I went to Target last night to pick up some school supplies and ended up picking up a few makeup items as well.

Disclaimer: I bought all these products with my own money.  I am not being sponsored by any company and everything I write is my own opinion.

The first thing I picked up was a repurchase of one of my favorite lip balms, the Nivea A Kiss of Milk & Honey. If you want to read more about it, I included it in my last post, Hits & Misses.  I can't remember the exact price but I know it was under $3.
The next thing I picked up was a travel pack of my favorite Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes.  I thought it would be good to put in my school backpack.  Again if you want to read more about it I have a whole post about it.  I am not sure of the price, but it probably wasn't to expensive.

The Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing Sheets were something that I wanted to try.  They are $4.49 and come with 50 in a small pack that is great for throwing in your purse.  I tried one out last night and it absorbed the oil around my nose quite nicely.  It says it won't smudge makeup but I don't know if that is true because I wasn't wearing makeup when I used it. 
The next thing I got is the Vaseline Aloe Lotion.  I can't remember the price exactly but I think it was around $2.  I have never tried this before so I don't have anything to say about it yet but I picked it up because I was out of lotion.

The Covergirl CG Smoothers BB Cream is something I have wanted to try for a while now.  A lot of people say that it is exactly the same as the Covergirl CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer and that is why I bought it.  I wanted a tinted moisturizer and I can't ever really find one in the drugstore.  Target didn't sell the Covergirl Tinted Moisturizer and the only place that I know that sells it is Ulta.  So I just picked up the BB cream and I am actually wearing it right now.  So far I like it!  This retails for $6.94 and comes in three shades.  I got mine in the lightest shade, 805 fair to light.

I picked up another Covergirl product and that is the Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm in the shade 220 Text Me.  It is basically a tinted lip balm and I tried it last night and it has really nice pigmentation.  It was $4.94 and I am not sure about the color on me.  It doesn't look bad but I have to wear it a few more times to tell what I think about the color.  Other than that the product feels nice on my lips.
I was in the Maybelline section and noticed that they had a new Baby Lips Electro.  Now Target only sells it online so it was kind of weird that there was one.  I looked through all of the Baby Lips(the regular ones) and found another Electro in the yellow shade(Fierce N Tangy) but I decided to go with the purple one(Berry Bomb).  It has a nice sheer purple color and I am a fan of the original Baby Lips.  The online price is $2.99 but I'm not sure how much I paid for it.
I picked up two e.l.f. brushes, the Smudge Brush and the Blending Brush.  I don't have many brushes so I thought that it would be nice to get a few more.  I have the powder brush from e.l.f.'s studio line and I like that one.  The brushes were $1 each, which is really inexpensive.  I have tried the blending one and it is an ok brush but I haven't tried the Smudge one yet.  I would recommend e.l.f. brushes if you are looking for inexpensive brushes.



The last thing I picked up was the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in clear.  This is a clear mascara that can also be used as brow gel.  I picked this up because I wanted to try a clear mascara to maybe wear to school because I don't usually wear makeup to school often.  I am excited to try this and it was only $4.44
