Target is closing time to stock up

As most of my fellow Canadians know, Target is closing all its stores in Canada. I am so sad about the news. I know they are not doing well but never thought only after a short 2 year period in Canada, they would close all the stores.

With that said, I decided to pay a visit to Target while I was in Ottawa yesterday to pick up a few items.  

Sonia Kashuk Hair Brush
Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer in Medium
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
NYX Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose

I love Sonia Kashuk hair brushes and this is a backup. I already have this and a pocket size. But thought after Target closes down, it would be hard to get this brand in Canada.

Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer palette is a very nice and creamy concealer which I have been using for a few months. Perfect for covering blemishes and it does a great job and doesn't dry up around the blemishes to make them extra unpleasant.

The Sonia Kashuk hair brush is said to be a dupe for the fairly expensive Mason Pearson one. I have not tried the brand but the look and bristles look quite similar.

Have been wanting to try NYX matte lip cream for a while and I checked out my Rexall stores which carry NYX and sadly they don't have this yet. Decided to pick up 02 Stockholm which is a nude neutral with a hint of orange in it.

There is this shade Cannes which I want to get but I have been looking for it everywhere in Target in Toronto but no luck. Doubt if they are going to restock. It is a very pretty neutral pink nude shade.

Since I couldn't get the nude pink shade I want in their matte lip cream, picked this matte lipstick in tea rose instead.

Do you plan to stock up on hard-to-get beauty items at Target? 


  1. I heard about that. That's a lot of stores to close! I love the Tea Rose lip cream.

    1. I really like the shade of Tea Rose. Still getting used to matte lipsticks as I am always a lip gloss gal. Going to miss Target so much :(

  2. Oh man, sorry they're all closing! Kind of shocking actually. Target is pretty popular!


    1. I am just still in stock that all the Target stores are closing here. It has only been 2 years (not even) and they spent so much money in converting and renovating the stores. I sure am going to miss Target(sipping Starbucks while shopping in there is the BEST!)

  3. Seems like everyone is picking up NYX and Sonia Kashuk at Target lol. Kinda funny since NYX is carried elsewhere. I got Tea Rose as well! It looks so pretty. I should really open mine haha
