Haul: Target, E.L.F. & Sephora

This weekend, I decided to take a trip to Columbia, Missouri which is about 120 miles/2 hours away from where I live.  It is also the location of the nearest Target/Sephora/Aeropostale/Barns and Nobel. The primary reason to go was because I needed a pair of snow boots for college (I'm leaving next Sunday!!!).  Naturally, I couldn't very well go to the mall without stopping by the Sephora inside JC Penney's.  If you follow me on twitter, you know that yesterday was my very first trip into a Sephora store.  So I was very very thrilled about that.  You can even see a picture to the left, of my cheesing like an idiot holding my Sephora bag. xD

What I really wanted was something from LUSH or Tarte, as I've been eyeing their amazonian clay blushes lately but because it was a smaller store, they didn't have either of those brands.  Also, I'm cheap, so I probably wouldn't have wanted to shell out $40 for a blush anyway.  They did however, have a mini-product display from which I grabbed a small tube of Benefit Bad Gal Lash for $9, as well as a mini Coralista and Sunbeam (I think that's what it's called?) set for $10.  Both of which I'm wearing today.  I especially love Bad Gal Lash mascara.  Considering I've only used mostly $4 drug store brands, you can imagine my excitement at getting both of these products.

Before my trip to Sephora, I went into Target where I spent mass amounts of time because I pretty much want everything in that store.  I went to the shoe section and found a style of snow boots I really liked but none of them were in my size and the price tags were torn off so I couldn't see how much they were.  I was about to leave, sort of bummed that I still didn't have any boots when I checked the last aisle as a last resort. Low and behold was a lonely pair of that style of boots in a size 11, which is a really hard to find size, especially on clearance shoes.  Not only, did they fit perfectly but they were $11.90 marked down from $44.  Stoked didn't even begin to cover it. I'm actually wearing them now, for no reason, other than they are super comfortable.  I love them.

I couldn't leave Target without snagging some E.L.F products so that is all the other stuff I got that you can see in the picture which I will list for you.

ELF Products:

  • Essentials line Eye shadow brush
  • Studio line Angled Eyeliner brush
  • Studio Blush in Tickled Pink 
  • Studio Blush in Candid Coral 
  • Studio line Golden Bronzer
  • Studio Cream Eyeliner in Midnight
  • Studio Matte Lip Color in Rich Red

I've tried out most of this and I'm really loving most of it.  Tomorrow I will post my FOTD for you (which is actually today's face) which features a lot of the products that I got yesterday. Sometime in the coming weeks I'm going to do the hit or miss post I've been wanting to do for awhile that is kind of a run down of the E.L.F. products I really liked and those that were kind of a let down.  I've bought sooo much from E.L.F. lately I thought it'd be a pretty decent post to do.

When I go to college I'll be a bit closer to a sephora and target..though I think the nearest is still 58 miles away but that's okay because I like road trips.
