Target Mini Makeup Haul Review

Good Buy or Goodbye?!

Back in November I posted a Target Mini Makeup Haul.  I have had time to use the products for a while, and I am ready to give a review on them.  I am going to use a simple “Good Buy” or “Goodbye” rating 😉

Target Mini Makeup Haul Review | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comHere is what I bought in November:

NYC Smooth Skin BB creme
NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum
Wet and Wild Comfort Zone Palette
NYC eye-shadows sticks

NYC BB Creme |

NYC Smooth Skin BB creme
I have used this BB cream in the past, and I remember liking it.  I may have actually been thinking of something else because after using it again, I really do not like this BB Cream from NYC!  It is thin, runny, and liquidy.  Not only does it not blend in well at all, it left my skin feeling dry. It also has these tiny fine sparkles in it.  It’s unfortunate this didn’t work out for me because the color match is actually perfect.  Overall as a brand, New York Color or NYC has always been a bit hit or miss for me.  I love their smooth skin bronzer, liquid eye liner, and translucent loose face powder, however I do not reccommend this one, this BB creme is a Goodbye!

NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum
I actually really really like this lipstick, but…it broke the first time that I used it, Boo Noooooo!  Despite that, I have still been using it, I have just been applying it with a lip brush.  It isn’t super convenient, but it gets the job done, and it really looks beautiful when applied with the lip brush.  I love the color, and the texture is smooth and creamy, and doesn’t dry my lips out at all.  Even though it broke so easily, I still say this lipstick a Good Buy!

I love love love my Wet and Wild Petal Pusher palette, so I was pretty sure that I was most likely also going to like the Comfort Zone palette. Now I know why I have heard so many people on YouTube recommend it, it is an awesome palette!!!  Wet N Wild has really stepped up their game!  I have been enjoying the Wet N Wild products that I have recently purchased. No question about it,this Comfort Zone Palette is a Good Buy!

NYC eye-shadows sticks | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comNYC eye-shadows sticks
I purchased the white shade #625 Rockefeller Center and #620 Murry Hill Champagne. I had high hopes for these two eye-shadow sticks.  I was really hoping that they would be a cheaper comparable version of my Milani Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow Pencil. Nope, not even close! While the white one is the worse of the two, neither transfer well onto the skin, and actually instead kind of ball up on the eye lid.  They don’t last long either, definitely not the promised 24 hrs. The Champagne one broke off at the base after only the second time I used it.  While I forgave the NYC lipstick for breaking because it was a great product, I can’t forgive this one!  There are 11 shades total, I don’t know what the other colors are like, but the two I have tried are a Goodbye, NOT a Good Buy!

Have you tried any of these products?  What are your thoughts on them?

**This year, instead of buying more new things, I am going to be trying to use the many products that I already have in my make up collection. I will have many more reviews of all the products that I bought ore received in sample/ subscription boxes through out 2015.**

  1. I completely agree with you on the bb cream! It’s terrible!! Even my husband said it looks really bad. I love my comfort zone palette too! I purchased mine almost a year ago and completely forgot about it. I picked it up earlier this week and was reminded how great the pigmentation is!
