I don’t know what’s in the air at Target, but it’s practically impossible to make a quick trip to that store. Walking inside is like stepping into a giant labyrinth, but instead of worrying you’ll never escape, you’re too busy being distracted by all those shiny clearance racks. How do we explain this phenomenon!? [22 Words]
For the next two months, you can get free shipping on everything from Target, if you hadn’t noticed already. Woohoo, Christmas in October! No, really, though, they’re doing it to bump their holiday sales.
So yeah, that 92-cent lip balm? Free shipping. A 97-cent pack of pens? Free shipping. If you really, really hate Target, you could troll the shit out of them by placing multiple orders for individual boxes of staples at 41 cents each (while the sale on that item lasts) and then returning them to the store. Or, of course, you could skip holiday shopping with the crowds and just order everything online with no tax or shipping, which is also a legit idea.
Of course, this is the same store that had a massive data breach on credit card names, numbers, expiration dates, and CVV numbers last holiday season but heeeeey! Free shipping. Hopefully it won’t happen again. [Consumerist; CNBC]
As I’ve said time and time again, Target’s designer collaborations are hit or miss. Prabal Gurung and Philip Lim? Loved. My Boom! sweatshirt is still inspiring catcallers. Kate Young? Nightmare. But if I may make a prediction, based on the just released lookbook, Target’s upcoming collection with Altuzarra (launching September 14) may just be a knockout. Full of snake prints, jewel tones mixed with neutrals, painterly orchids and a mixture of both ease and structure, the collection is perfect for the bad ass business lady who likes to smoke a little grass, drink bourbon and tie up her boyfriends in her downtime. Don’t worry — you have a little bit of her inside you, so this collection is totally for you. Click through to see all the looks, plus closeups of some of my favorite pieces. [Refinery 29]
UPDATE, 12:30p.m.: Oh no! We regret to inform you that Pixi has gotten in touch with us say these new Cheeks Stains from the brand’s spring line won’t be produced, due to production issues. If you’re jonesing for a similar look, you may want to try Pixi’s Sheer Cheek Gel instead.
Nothing against makeup brushes, but they’re kind of a pain in the butt to clean. Any way I can, I prefer to use beauty products in stick form, which can be applied directly onto my face. That’s why — in addition to the versatile and flattering colors — I was extremely interested in the Pixi Cheek Sheen from Target. (Sorry, Tar-jay.) Keep reading »

I know, I know. The moment you saw Kate Upton’s zero gravity Sports Illustrated photo spread, you were like, Where can I get a teeny tiny gold bikini that would be appropriate to wear in space and kind of makes me look like a more vapid Barbarella? Wonder no more because Target has teamed up with Sports Illustrated to create an exclusive line of swimsuits based on the 50th anniversary issue. You can purchase an exact replicas of Kate’s two zero-G bikinis for a mere $35. Boobs that defy gravity are not included. [People]
