New and Exciting Makeup and Beauty at Target

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

If you live on the West Coast you’re likely getting your kiddies ready for school! If you’re on the East like me you still have almost a month to go. But either way Back to School is sort of already happening since the end of July. Stores around here started putting out school supplies and such at the end of July. I felt like the middle of July they already started clearancing out bathing suits and Summer decor and started pushing college decor, supplies, etc…! I personally love this time of the year. Summer is still here yes but the nights start getting a little cooler and you can feel a bit of Fall in the air in the early morning. Like today it was a bit chilly out when I left for work and it felt like autumn was creeping into the air.

A lot of people don’t want to rush Summer away but I can’t say I mind much. I love Fall and I’m already starting to gather up Halloween decor.

This also marks a time for a lot of new makeup, beauty, and skincare releases! Target always has some great stuff to pick up and I’m always browsing around the site checking for the latest goodies!

Here’s some new and exciting makeup and beauty available at Target.

Yes To Tea Tree Soothing Spray-On Hair Mask $9.99
Looks like Yes To is headed into the hair business! This new spray-on hair mask contains tea tree and sage oil for itchy scalps!

Ethique Eco-Friendly Pinkalicious Shampoo Bar $16
I love Lush Shampoo Bars! They are super great for travel! So, of course the Ethique Shampoo Bars caught my eye! I wonder if they are as good as Lush? This one is scented like pink graupefruit and vanilla and contains coconut oil and cocoa butter for smooth, hydrated hair!

Color Sweet Surprise Donut Eye Shadow Palette $9.99
You can’t say no to a donut eyeshadow palette right?

Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Strip To Scrub $6.99
Here’s one of the most interesting products I’ve seen in the pore strip world to date! Apply this pore strip to your nose, wait for a few minutes, tear it off to remove deep embedded dirt, blackheads, and oil! It also leaves behind scrubbing residue that can be gently be used to clean up anything the pore didn’t remove. Pretty cool right?

Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrubby Gel Strips $5.89
Speaking of cool pore strips these new gel strips can be apply to your nose and they’ll turn into a lathering scrub upon contact which you can use to gently whisk away dirt, oil, and blackheads without the pain of ripping away a strip!

Badger Damascus Rose Cleansing Milk $16.99
I’m excited to see Target is carrying a range of different Badger Balms! I’m a rather big fan! I’ve never tried the cleansing milk though so that might be added to my list soon!

St. Ives continues introducing a variety of fun, funky skincare to their main line! This new hydrating gel cleanser contains watermelon extracts to gently whisk away dirt, makeup, and oil while leaving skin hydrated and fresh!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    School starts next week here. I think those days of waiting until after Labor Day are going the way of the dinos.

  • Dee

    School has already started out in CO! Crazy early.

    So ready for fall though.

  • Deborah

    That cleansing milk sounds fabulous! Our target just got a remodel and the beauty section is huge! There are some new brands. Sadly, they got rid of makeup geek!
    Our schools go back after Labor Day. That’s pretty new. They had been going back the second week of August but they changed it. I believe they said it was to boost tourism.
    I have not felt a glimpse of fall yet but this weekend is supposed to be cooler and not humid! Yay!

    • Isabella Muse

      Mine never had makeup geek boo! πŸ™ Where are you located? Here in NY typically it is after Labor day ;D It’s a bit humid today but the nights are oh so much cooler thank god!

  • Kish

    I’ll have to go look for the St. Ives stuff! I’m still getting settled in Texas, just finished my first week of work. I could use a treat.

    • Isabella Muse

      How’s texas treating you! and omg you need to send me your NEW address again lol! I have a box for you under my desk for like 5 months! jeezzzzzzzzzzzzzz I am horrid!

  • kjh

    Target BTS and Walmart/BB&B season. Heaven. Got psyched about new Zoeva @ Ulta. Ordered 2 palettes, bec, I only have~10! Another love. Hope they expand Z color cosmetics. Their LLs, in 3 formulas, are pretty sweet. Brushes, too. Around Boston, some schools start minimally before LD, but most still start the Tues after for an entering class, and the Wed. for returning students.

    • Isabella Muse

      ha! ;D enjoy them! πŸ˜€ It’s so weird for me to hear school starting before LD!

    Texas is experiencing its worst heat of the year so far right now. School in my area starts on the 15th. It will probably be 98-102 degrees on that day. When I went to school it usually started around the 23rd of August, and it was always hot. Often the school air conditioners would break under the strain. If they had any sense, they would not start school until after Labor Day. It would be okay to end the school year in mid-June if necessary, to avoid the intense August heat. June is usually not intensely hot (it’s hot, just not as hot as August most years).

    • Isabella Muse

      omg those poor kids! I hope they have ac! I’ve always gone back to school after Labor day. Typically it was around the 5 or the 7 of September when we started our first day!

  • Liz

    I’m dying to try the strips to scrub!
    Have you seen that Dove has bath bombs? You should try and review please!

  • Jada

    Thanks for this round up!! I definitely have to check out some of these products- especially the cleansing milk!

  • Kimmyyy

    Uhg, y’all are so lucky it starts cooling down in your area this early in the year. It’s lava hot and humid here on the coast of Texas until almost December. Don’t get me wrong, I love my state and am super grateful we at least don’t get much snow where I live, but this wet heat is just the worst sometimes!
    Anyway, I’m interested in the cleansing milk and lip scrub, so I have to keep an eye out for those! πŸ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      Texas is harsh! I like having the four seasons here on the East Coast. I can’t cope with heat that long haha ;-D I def want to try the lip scrub!
