This week I paid a visit to my nearby Target and was very excited to see two things: that all of the Easter sweets were on full display, and that the beauty aisles had been entirely revamped. I kept my purchases to springtime desserts for the time being, but I spent some serious time exploring the new makeup and skincare offerings, too.
The change I noticed most immediately in the beauty section is that the lighting is vastly improved. Thank goodness! Also, since they’ve added some new brands and a lot of new products within the brands that had already been present, the displays are efficiently organized in a more vertical orientation.
I know that a lot of other Targets haven’t quite seen this big change occur, but it’s also seemed like there have been a lot of clearanced items and unstocked shelves, so I think this is just a big work in progress. Have you seen these changes in your nearby Target?
The other things I walked away with besides the Peeps were Pillsbury blue raspberry cake mix and vanilla funfetti frosting, which combined cost a grand total of around $3. I’m always super excited to see the bright colors pop up at this time of year, and when I saw these featured cake mixes (blue raspberry, key lime, and pink lemonade, if you’re curious!) I couldn’t resist.
I baked it up the very same night and have been enjoying it since. And you know what? It’s pretty tasty. Tasty and festive … love it.
How about you? Does the sight of marshmallow chicks and pastel-colored everything brighten your mood?
