Tiny Target Haul

For the first time in a long while, I had a pretty low key weekend. Saturday morning I had to be at the Kappa house at 7am so we could initiate our new girls, and since our spring class is typically small, I was outta there by 9am! Since I was already up WAY before I usually am on a Saturday, I met the parents for breakfast and then did a little shopping with Kate. She needed to find a pair of earrings to wear later that night so I of course offered to tag along! On our way home we stopped at Target and I managed to pick up just a couple things.

Umberto Dry Clean Dry Shampoo $8.99
The main reason we went to Target was so that Kate could get some more dry shampoo. She swore up and down by this one, so of course I had to pick up some for myself! The only dry shampoo I've used has been the one from Tresemme, and unfortunately it leaves a gray tint to my hair...NOT what I want as a brunette! I was with here when she was getting ready and when she used this stuff it lemme tell ya IT WORKS! It game alot a volume and made her day 2 hair look MUCH better. Kate is also a fellow brunette and this didn't leave behind any kind of color residue. So I'm really excited to try this out!

e.l.f. Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder $1
I just finished the first one of these I bought, so this was merely a repurchase. For $1, this is a great product! If you like shimmery bronzers, this is a great product that definitely won't break the bank. My only complaint is that the fallout from this product is pretty substantial, but considering this price I don't mind losing some of the product. All I do with this is dust it all over my face to give that all-over glow and I'm out the door!

N.Y.C. Cover Stick around $2
I bought this simply because the Revlon Colorstay concealer I bought a while back was just not working! The Revlon concealer was a spot treatment that contains salicylic acid and really dried out my skin, so I needed to find something quick. I haven't tried this yet and I usually go for liquid concealers rather than stick, but I figured for just under $2 I would give it a shot.

A couple weeks ago Target was running a promotion for the "Bag of Beauty" on their website. All you had to do was give them your address and you were sent this cosmetic bag filled with goodies and coupons!

The makeup bag is by Sonia Kashuk and matches the rest of her line that you can find in stores. Inside there are samples from Nivea, Pantene, Revlon, Neutrogena and Frederick Fekkai along with $25 worth of coupons! It was nice to find this little surprise in my mailbox :) I think it's super smart of Target to do this kind of promoting and giving out coupons to use just at their stores. I also noticed looking at the Sunday ads that a lot of the products there are coupons for are ALSO on sale this week. Hopefully Target will be doing these kinds of promotions in the future!

I know my blogging has been sporadic recently, but school is rough! Whoever said Senior Spring was easy was most certainly NOT a science major! I do have a couple posts I want to write, including updates on Project 10 Pan (yes im still doing this despite my beauty purchases!!) and an update on my school situation. I am must more active on twitter so definitely follow me there for daily *cough*hourly*cough* updates on my life!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!


***All of the products were bought with my money, with the exception of the Target beauty bag, which was sent to me after signing up on their website. I was not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned above***


  1. Thanks for sharing about this brand of dry shampoo! I love trying new ones to see which ones work the best and I can't wait to try this one! The first one I ever tried was Batiste and it left my hair grey too! It was awful. and I am NOT a fan of the Tresemme ones. I think they did a poor job designing the formula. I've also found one at Ulta that's in a white can (can't think of the name of it, but it's only like $7.99) and it works and smells good, but doesn't add body. I know there are some expensive ones that work really good, but I'm not paying that much to clean my dirty hair, haha Thanks!!

  2. I signed up for that bag too! Hope I get it soon!

  3. Thanks for sharing about the dry shampoo. I use one but it is pretty expensive so I am looking for an alternative. I will check this one out.
