Target Beauty Clearance Haul!

Target Beauty Clearance Haul!
Target Clearance Beauty Haul makeup deals and sales!

I don’t always buy makeup at Target, but when I do, I buy it on clearance!

I’m in the frequent shopper rewards programs for both Ulta and Sephora.  I’ll sometimes browse beauty items at Target, but I almost never buy from there…like maybe one thing every few years.  I love Target, but I get better deals elsewhere on cosmetics and beauty.


It started with the Alba Botanical Hawaiian Facial Scrub with the pore purifying pineapple enzyme.  I’ve been a fan of this stuff for years and that little, red CLEARANCE sticker caught my eye.  Half off and, HELLO! It was the bonus size.  Get in my cart NOW, please!
I make my own facial scrub with organic lemon juice and sugar, and while it’s handy to make and works well, I am sure it  costs much more than this scrub did. Frugality- I haz it.
Here’s where I got inspired to make my lemon scrub:

Okay. That was such a good deal. I had my adrenaline rush.  Onward through the aisles!

The red stickers drew me like a moth to a flame.  I checked out most of them, but a lot of the cosmetics were the wrong shade for me or it was obvious that the product was old/dried out. I was so disappointed that L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blushes were on clearance because they were old and had major shrinkage in the package; I had wanted to try them and they are normally about $13 ea and these were marked to about $3, but they wouldn’t have been any good.

I don’t usually buy drugstore brand cosmetics but I have been wanting to try a few so this was a good opportunity to pick some up and give ’em a go.  I had just put mascara on my shopping list because my old one hit its 6 month mark and it’s time to replace it, so that was about the only thing I really needed.  The green primer will help with the redness so hopefully it will work out.  Other than that it was mainly just fun stuff!

So here’s my haul:

Alba Botanical Hawaiian Facial Scrub $9.99 → $4.98

CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast in 815 Bronze Fire $6.94 → $2.08

P.P.S. – All of the items were still sealed except the primer, but since it was in a pump, I just pumped a bit out, wiped everything off, and spritzed it with my anti-bacterial brush cleanser and let it dry before using.  Better safe than sorry!
