Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and of course, the color of the month is: RED! TARGET has you covered with some exclusives:
LIPS are definitely the body part you’re going to want to focus on, because lips are for kissing, and red lips are not just festive, they’re glamorous. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour is “Target Red” is not just available exclusively at Target stores, it’s in a red metallic case with the iconic Target “bullseye” logo right on the front. The color of this lipstick is bright red, but it’s clear and neutral in tone, so everyone can wear it. I love the has a mirror-like compact (created by designer John Lonezak). Infalible features a longwear lip color base coat (in a wanded tube) and a clear, vanilla-scented conditioning top coat (in a swivel-up tube) to seal and color. This dynamic duo gives your lips full, dramatic, opaque color and lots of shine. You’ll get Vitamin E the basecoat, and Marine Collagen in the top coat. Red lipstick can end up looking “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane”-ghoulish if it smears or runs, but Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour really does stay put. This is a great product to pop into your purse for day or evening. It’s perfect for brides and anyone who needs to be close-up ready, at a moment’s notice. Take it with you, but you might not even need to touch up because it is so long lasting. For just $9.99!
Match your nails to your lips with another Target exclusive: L’Oreal Paris PRO Manicure in Target Red. What can $5.99 get you? Perfectly polished, shiny, red nails! L’Oreal’s square bottles with silvery tops are elegant as-is, and this particular color has a Target logo on the cap. I’m in love with this deep, creamy red that is also in a neutral tone to flatter just about every skin tone. Although I didn’t wear the polish for 7 days, supposedly it will last that long (wearing rubber gloves when you wash dishes, and taking care of your hands, will help). If you tend to avoid dark colors because you just don’t have the time to deal with fading and chipping, this polish, with Pro-Keratin for stronger nails, might just change your mind.
Smooth skin is a turn-on, so why not try a red-themed exfoliating body wash that smells like tart and sweet tropical fruits Target’s Up & Up body products has one in an elegantly curved, plastic bottle with red cap. Pomegranate seeds help exfoliate all those dry, dead skin cells that make your skin look dull, while a melange of oils and tropical palm milk, help to moisturize. the big, 18 oz. bottle will get you through the last few weeks of really cold weather. It’s available only at Target Stores, not online, but well worth the trip not just for this product, but for a host of Target items.
