Best of My 2021 Black History Month Buys

Target Famous Black Inventors Mug

I don’t know when this happened, but Target has recently become one of the best box stores to find amazing stuff that celebrate Black people and our culture during Black History Month. Last year, I got the Famous Black Inventors Mug. It was a fluke finding that mug, and a lot of my finds this year were flukes as well. I walked into Target on a cold January day and walked out with some of my best Black History Month buys ever!

Black History Month “Mind Body Soul” Tote Bag

I have no use for this bag, but I couldn’t resist not supporting the amazing work of a fellow Aggie KeShawn Sanders. I can’t wait to rock my whatever all around town in that bag.

Black History Month Enamel Pin Set

Just like the Black Inventors Mug, this pin set was a lucky find for me. There was only one of these left when I went to my local Target. I’ve really gotten into pins lately, and I’m really excited to rock more Black AF pins. 

The Lip Bar Vegan Everyday Eyeshadow Palette

The Lip Bar display at Target included both lipgloss and eyeshadow. Since I am not really into glosses at the moment, I decided to grab one of the quads. There were only a few available. Ebony Eyes was the one that spoke most to me.

Mented Cosmetics Semi-Matte Lipstick

Mented Cosmetics Brand Nude Semi-Matte Lipstick

For what seems like years, I have been hearing absolutely nothing but rave reviews about Mented Cosmetics. When I saw their lipsticks on display at my local Target, I knew I couldn’t leave without getting one. I had no idea which color to pick, so I picked Brand Nude. I can never have too many nude lippies, and I know Mented knows nude is not just some chalky beige shade.
