The New Ulta Target

Gia Easter, Staff Writer

As I do my weekly target run to get needed yet unneeded things, I see the most beautiful thing— the new Ulta in Target. It was fresh and filled with skincare and make-up, everything a beauty guru could ask for. I am a big make up plus skincare lover, so I just had to try out some items. I will be giving my honest opinion about the products.

Tarte Shape tape concealer- 6/10

I really like this product it hides my very sleep deprived eyebags, but it does tend to get very cakey after a lot of uses. I love the wand it makes the mascara easy to apply. The product is also PETA approved, cruelty-free, vegan and free of oils to help keep those pores unclogged. 


Benefit cosmetics Hoolamatte bronzer- 8/10.

I am in love with this product. I like how it applies and the smell of it, if that doesn’t sound weird. I don’t prefer the brush that comes with it, so I use my own brushes, but overall great products. They also come in many other colors for darker complexions and highlight. 


Two Face Lip injections- 8/10.

Okay, so I had never tried this product before I bought it, I had seen it trend on Tik-Tok for a while, so I thought it was my time to try it out. When applied it is very tingly. An item in the lip gloss called capsaicin brings blood flow to your lips and results in a big, puffy lip look. After waiting three minutes I was very surprised to see it working. I wouldn’t say it was a drastic change but there was a difference over all after 10 mins.


The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7%- 9/10

Now that I have this skincare item, I will never forget it. This worked wonders on my skin. This may not work for all but speaking from my experience it was great. It made my skin so smooth and cleared it up so well. Glycolic acid helps break the bonds between the outer layer of skin cells, including dead skin cells. It helped remove my blackheads easily.


Overall, I am very happy target can feed my skincare obsession.
