Spring 2012 Target Beauty Bag

A few weeks ago, Target was offering their (Don't QUOTE me) bi-annual beauty bag for free.  I'm pretty sure they offer it twice a year.  Once in the spring, and once in the fall, or at least that is what I've read on fellow blogger's blogs.  I got one last year, and when I saw they were offering it again, i jumped on it with both feet!!! Anyway, if you haven't already liked Target on Facebook, do so.  They are ALWAYS offering samples.

I went out to the mailbox today, and saw a lovely little box.  I had been watching out for it since I watched a Youtuber (Can't remember the name or I'd give credit) post a video of it a few days ago.

The bag inside is a cute pink and coral stripe.  The name brand is London SOHO New York.  I saw a few of the bigger bags to match this at my Target shopping trip on Monday.  The larger bags were retailing for around $16.  So, this is a nice little bag.  And considering it was free, makes it even better.  I like it a lot better than last year's Sonia Kashuk one.  It's actually a lot bigger and will probably end up being in my purse.

It was absolutely FULL of samples.  I'm actually surprised they didn't have trouble closing the zipper!

  • Target Beauty Coupon book: We love experimenting with new looks.  We really love saving money while doing it. Save more than $15 on this year's newest beauty picks at Target. (All Coupons expire May 31, 2012...which is kinda a bummer)  13 coupons total in book.
All in all, this beauty bag was amazing!  I am pretty bummed that the coupons won't even last a month.  And since we are going on vacation in June, we are having to save as much money as possible so my makeup budget is kinda slim to none.  The facial wipes are going to come in really handy on the trip as is the makeup bag.  The facial wash smells really good and I'm looking forward to using it!
