The Target near me recently went through a major update to their floorplan and layout and I have to say I’ve quite enjoyed the new look. I frequent Target for a multitude of reasons, and now I’m loving exploring the new brands that seem to be popping up weekly!
I recently tried 3 beauty-related items that were total wins and I wanted to share them with you!
First up, the Makeup Geek Bronze Luster.
It’s always been a challenge to find a good bronzer color for my pale, neutral skin tone. Everything seems too dark or too orange. Target just started carrying MakeupGeek products and as soon as I saw the lightest shade of this bronzer I had high hopes that it would be a good match for me. Good news! It was. It’s not overly shimmery but it does look luminous on the skin. It’s more of a light caramel shade than an orange-y sunset shade which is perfect for my skin tone. The shade in the photo is SunKissed.
Next up, and slightly related to bronzer, is the Tanologist line of self-tanning products. Full disclosure: I’ve used 2 products by this line one time each so this feels a bit premature BUT I have so much hope that I want to share. (If you are curious about tried + true tanning products, read this post!)
The Tanologist Self Tan Drops (light) are clear drops you add to your moisturizer to give a healthy glow to the skin. I love the control that the drops give you. If you want a very subtle glow, only add 2 drops. For a bit more depth, add 4-5 drops. When I used it I used 4 drops per leg, and 3 drops per arm. It went on very easily and I instantly saw a nice glow to my skin. I used a mild smelling lotion so I could see if the “tan” smell came through but it truly is odorless. Make sure you wash your hands after you use it, then go on about your day. It does not require any showering off!
Finally, the Real Techniques All Over Blender was something I first saw online, then intentionally looked for in the store. It’s a very easy to hold and use foundation + bronzer brush, though I will only use it for foundation.
What enticed me was how small this brush is in your hand, but the brush head is still wide enough to make foundation application easy and quick. I pumped a bit of NARS Sheer Glow onto the brush, then dotted it onto my face and buffed it in. It was so quick and easy, and this brush won’t take up a ton of room in your makeup bag either!
