throwback thursday & beauty box.

today i'm again joining alice at happiness at mid-life and her throwback thursday fashion link-up series.  this blouse was actually a shift dress that i chopped off and hemmed to blouse length. i've only ever worn it tucked into a skirt because i did a poor sewing job but the last time i wore it was over a year ago (oh, hello long hair... hope you return soon...) so i figured it was time to wear it again!

so, did anyone else hear about and order the target beauty box recently?  i know a lot of fashion bloggers subscribe to monthly services like birch box that sends samples of health & beauty products... but i'm more of a big box store budgeted girl and have never seen the value in those services.  the target beauty box was only $7, and i got another 5% off with my redcard and free shipping.  not bad for the 5 samples included, since 2 were full sized!  here is what came inside: 
  • elnett hairspray - this is actually the perfect size because it takes me forever to use a can of hairspray!
  • fekkai dry shampoo - this also seems like a nice size!
  • laneige bb cushion - i honestly have never heard of bb cushions, but i guess it is similar to bb cream just in a pressed powder?  i'll find out!
  • nyx eye pencil - this came in white, which seems like an odd color for eyeliner, but i really like the smooth texture and how easily it applies, so hopefully i'll find some way to wear it
  • l'oreal colour riche lipgloss - this is a decent size gloss and a nice neutral mauve.  l'oreal is not a cheap cosmetic, so i was most impressed with this item.
anyway, i was pretty excited about this beauty box i thought i would share in case others are interested too... i mean, who doesn't like fun and inexpensive samples of new products to try, especially those you can run to target and pick up if you like?  i also got sucked into ordering the back to college care package for only $5.  can you tell i love samples of stuff?

thanks for visiting!
