12 Days of Christmas 2016: Day 2

Box: Target 12 Days of Beauty Faves Advent Calendar

Cost: $24.99 and still available!!


On the first day of December Christmas my self true love gave to me: NYX Xtreme Lip Cream. [click here to see Day 1 of the Target advent calendar unboxing]


Here is the unopened box, for your viewing pleasure.


EcoTools Angled Kabuki Brush: $3.14 on clearance at Target [no longer available] or $9.99 from Ulta

This is a super soft brush! It’s for blush, bronzer, or contouring powder. Though, if you read very many of our makeup box posts you’ll know that most of us cannot contour. Like, if RuPaul made us countour for our lives [instead of lipsynching], we’d all be sashaying away.


I do want to point out that day one and two items have not been available on Target’s website, which is weird… Also, this seems to be smaller than the one pictured, and the handle is much more festive here.


Day 1 + 2 chilling in some pine needles…


What do you think? Is Target eliminating old stock with their calendars? There are 10 more days to go.

    Bahahaha let’s stick the stuff we don’t have the numbers for the target box in the advent box! Keep posting I need to live through a daily excitment via you since a tiny piece of chocolate awaits me in my TJ advent box!

    Love this series! But that brush looks so tiny. I would end up with “dirt” on my face and “dirt” on my hands! True Story- Ever since that day my hubby tried to *wipe away my contouring with his spit**, he won’t say anything about makeup. We go home from my mom’s on Thanksgiving and I must have steamed off my mascara in kitchen. I looked like a zombie! I asked him why he didn’t tell me and he actually said “Because I thought you were trying to do a smokey eye or something!” I came close to smacking him with a Tupperware bowl full of gravy.

      Susie I laughed so much at your comment!! My boyfriend will usually just flat out tell me my face looks weird. However, recent eyeliners I’ve gotten in boxes have been just melting off my eyes, so I get that raccoon look every time I want a cat look.

    Remember the advent calendar scene in Bad Santa? Hilarious. I hear the sequel isn’t funny though.

      Sdbear I’ve never seen Bad Santa, but my brother liked it too so I’ll have to check it out!

    I really like eco tools. It is a little suspicious that you can’t buy the products!!
