Reasons Every Beauty Lover Should Shop At Target
Short of a brand-new car, you can pretty much buy anything at Target. Most importantly, the retailer's beauty offerings are just as extensive. The mega- retailer has been ramping up its skin-care, makeup, hair, and nail products over the last few years. For example, it launched an affordable in-house brand with over 70 personal-care products in late 2018, and expanded its Target Clean icon to include thousands of beauty products in summer 2019. In the past year alone, some of our favorite brands have been added to the mix making a quick trip to the store (or a quick visit to its website) that much more tempting.
It's nearly impossible to choose our favorite products considering Target has so many, but let us at least give you a head start on your next beauty trip with some of the best beauty and makeup finds we could find at Target.
Revlon Photoready Rose Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer
Some primers can leave skin feeling coated and heavy with product, but Revlon's Photoready Rose Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer is a water-based formula that feels light on skin. Packed with hydrating olive oil beads, the pearly rose primer delivers a healthy, dewy glow for less than 11 bucks. Drip, then massage the fluid directly onto clean skin pre-makeup or mix a few drops into your foundation.
PYT Beauty Faux Sun Bronzer Duo in Bali
The newly rebranded PYT Beauty recently made its Target debut with a lineup of clean, cruelty-free formulas, and more adorable packaging. A running favorite from the lineup: this Faux Sun Bronzer Duo in Bali. When applied individually, the darker matte bronze powder is ideal for creating a subtle contour, while the complementary shimmery powder adds a gorgeous glowy highlight. When swirled together in the pan and dusted all over, this shimmer-matte powder combination beautifully balances each other out and delivers a golden glow in seconds.
Function of Beauty Lengthen #HairGoal Booster Shots
The customizable hair-care brand Function of Beauty recently launched in Target with a clever new way to tailor your shampoo and conditioner to best fit your changing hair needs. The brand's Booster Shots come in 10 different varieties, each with a supercharged formula that targets a specific hair concern like strengthening, adding volume, creating curl definition, or this Lengthen #HairGoal Booster Shots option. Mix them into your base shampoo and conditioner to help target your specific hair needs.
Scnci Elevated Basics Jaw Clips
This might look like your average trio of claw clips, but don't be fooled. These high-quality Scnci Elevated Basics Jaw Clips have all the finishing touches that set them apart from the pack: easy-to-open hinges that won't snap out of your hand, a wide mouth that will gently secure large (or small) areas of hair, and no-slip grips that hold your styles in place without tugging or tearing your hair in the process. Plus, the neutral color palette complements any and all hair colors.
Amie Soft + Smooth Exfoliating Polish
The complete Amie line is tailored for sensitive skin, but the formulas still mean business. This Soft + Smooth Exfoliating Polish uses rice powder to gently buff away dead skin. A combination of almond milk, safflower, and shea butter deeply moisturize skin as you slough leaving nothing but smooth skin behind.
Rosen Skincare Super Smoothie Cleanser
The ingredient list on Rosen Skincare's Super Smoothie Cleanser reads more like a fruit shake than a face wash, and that's precisely what we love about it. It's formulated with a mix of active fruit powders including lemon peel and strawberry which help brighten, protect, and smooth over dull skin. The exfoliating cleanser gently buffs away buildup from the day, making it especially good for those prone to breakouts. There's also moisturizing glycerin in the smoothie to rehydrate skin.
Honest Beauty Get it Together Eyeshadow Palette
The gorgeous mix of matte, shimmer, and satin shadows in Honest Beauty's Get it Together Eyeshadow Palette includes 10 versatile and velvety powders that you'll want to keep coming back to, day and night. The colors include a range of everyday neutrals like bronze, dusty rose, and champagne shimmer, but you'll also find some dial-it-up nighttime shades (including a deep brown and shimmering bronze). Blend all over your lids, use as an eyeliner, or apply wet for a more intense color payoff.
Undone Beauty Water Bronzer
This creamy, buildable Water Bronzer stick from Undone Beauty simplifies the intimidating, dramatic strokes you may have once thought necessary for chiseled cheekbones. With a few buildable swipes, you can easily control your desired level of definition. The creamy formula applies smoothly, but won't settle into pores. It's also buttery enough to blend with your fingers without melting away in the summer heat.
Versed Just Breathe Clarifying Serum
After a year of mask-related skin irritation and breakouts, the pore- decongesting Just Breath Clarifying Serum from Versed is the breath of fresh air your skin has been longing for. The skin-calming serum, which is made with a potent trio of bacteria-clearing willow bark, oil-reducing niacinamide, and protecting zinc, helps soothe redness and clear out pores, in just a couple of drops applied daily.
InfinitiPro by Conair SmoothWrap Dryer
Allow the sleek modern design to be your warning: This InfinitiPro by Conair SmoothWrap Dryer is anything but average. It was specifically designed to help cut drying time in half using a combination of dual ion therapy (meaning positive and negative ions are emitted in the airflow to help smooth hair as you dry). The dryer packs a ton of power with two speeds and three heat settings that, when cranked all the way up, will safely take your hair to a glossy finish in minutes. There's also a concentrator and diffuser attachment included for more customized styling.
Ogx Care with Pride Collection
This feel-good Target exclusive features the same pampering formulas you've come to love from Ogx, dressed up in cheerful, rainbow-inspired packaging in celebration of Pride Month. The limited-edition bottles in the Ogx Care with Pride Collection outfit the brand's most popular shampoo and conditioner pairings including Extra Strength Argan Oil, Refreshing Scalp + Tea Tree Mint, Smoothing + Liquid Pearl, and Damage Remedy + Coconut Miracle.
Each gentle cleansing and conditioning duo leaves your hair looking glossy and refreshed, with the added heart-warming bonus of knowing that $1 from every product purchased goes to Family Equality, a nonprofit organization committed to protecting and supporting LGBTQIA families.
W3LL People Nudist Multi-Use Cream in Nude Berry
W3LL People's Nudist Multi-Use Cream in Nude Berry is a triple-threat multitasking product that delivers on all accounts. The buttery cream blends like a dream no matter where you apply it. Dab on cheeks for a five-second natural flush, add a rosy wash of color over eyelids, or swipe on lips for a moisturizing hint of tint. The formula includes a healthy dose of skin conditioners like shea and cocoa butter, plus avocado oil which moisturize without coating skin in a greasy film.
Sol by Jergens Deeper by the Drop Serum
This genius new formula allows you to instantly turn your favorite moisturizer into your favorite self-tanning moisturizer, customizing your color by the drop. The concentrated, oil-free Sol by Jergens Deeper by the Drop Serum uses sugars derived from beets to tint skin. Mix a few drops into your face or body lotion for a natural, even bronze. Depending on how many drops you blend in, results can range from a subtle golden glow to a deep bronze.
Olay Cleansing & Brightening Body Wash With Vitamin C
All three of Olay's 'premium' body washes are worthy upgrades to its classic Ultra Moisture Body Wash, but we can't help but be the most excited about the Cleansing & Brightening Body Wash formula seen here. In addition to the vitamin B3 found in each body wash, this sumptuous cleanser also features one of our favorite facial skin-care ingredients, vitamin C. Because doesn't your body deserve to glow too? (Obviously.)
Kristin Ess Ultra Hydrating Curl Repair Mask
Ever since hairstylist Kristin Ess's haircare line first landed at Target, it has proven that high-quality hair products can also be highly accessible. The brand's latest launches, like the Ultra Hydrating Curl Repair Mask, are no exception. Used as an occasional stand-in for conditioner, this deeply moisturizing formula helps define and revive extra-dry curls. You can even leave it on for up to an hour in especially desperate times.
No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara
Inside this shimmering tube is a mascara formula that No7 says imitates false- lash-level volume. And just as impressive as that lush fullness is how quickly this Impact Ultra Mascara dries no smudges here without feeling crackly and flaky.
Pacifica Dream Shot Booster Serum
Nighttime already comes with its own rejuvenating benefits they don't call it 'beauty sleep' for nothing but Pacifica's Dream Shot Booster Serum makes the most of your unconscious hours by building a moisture barrier that helps support your precious collagen. The vegan formula includes ceramides, rose, and a redness-reducing blend of minerals and antioxidants so you wake up to happier, more supple skin.
Harry's Texturizing Putty
This Texturizing Putty is a styling dream come true for short hair. Harry's has somehow figured out how to give you total control of how your style without leaving your hair stiff or sticky. It's just subtly defined, exactly how you'd like it, and stays that way all day.
L'Oral Paris Color Riche Plump & Shine Lipstick
Target has always been a trusted source for tried-and-true drugstore brands, so even while the aisles continue to welcome new names, classics like L'Oral Paris and its beloved lipsticks are always at the ready. The Plump & Glow edition of the brand's Color Riche lipstick is especially irresistible, boasting a glossy finish and subtle tingling effect that leads to a hint of additional fullness.
Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Duo
If you haven't tried banishing a blemish with a hydrocolloid patch, these Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patches are a great first foray into this type of treatment. The little stickers absorb fluids from pimples to help speed up healing while simultaneously serving as a deterrent to picking and popping. This pack comes with the brand's original patches, which are perfect for overnight use, and invisible ones to wear discreetly during the day.
SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Body Spray
If your breakouts are more of a below-the-neck concern, you'll appreciate this Salicylic Acid Body Spray by SLMD, the brand launched by Dr. Pimple Popper herself, dermatologist Sandra Lee. The maximum-strength OTC concentration of salicylic acid helps break down the bacteria and dirt that clog pores, and the 360-degree sprayer makes it easy to target any area of concern.
Zuzu Luxe Color Correcting Primer
If you're new to Zuzu Luxe makeup, this primer is a great place to start literally. Kick off your makeup routine with a light layer of this Color Correcting Primer in the shade that addresses whatever your particular needs are. Mint Green counteracts red blotchiness, Lilac brightens up sallowness, and Light Pink undoes dullness.
Pixi by Petra H2O Skin Tint
We have a hard time deciding what we love most about Pixi by Petra's H2O Skin Tint, so we'll call it a four-way tie. Between the even, natural coverage, the soothing smell of lavender, the weightless moisture, and the price tag we're completely sold on this skin tint. Plus, it's quite the bargain when you consider that similar products cost twice as much.
Differin Gel Acne Treatment
Yep, you don't need a prescription anymore for this dermatologist-recommended retinoid acne treatment. Differin Gel Acne Treatment is available right at the drugstore for your blemish-busting pleasure.
With its textured rubber handle, hydrating aloe vera strip, and five-blade head, the Flamingo Razor will give you a close shave without feeling uncomfortable to grip. Target's customer reviews also sang the praises of this product, with more than 100 five-star ratings to its credit.
Quip Electric Toothbrush
This American Dental Association-approved electric toothbrush, the Quip, is now available in all 1,800 Target stores nationwide. Included in the Quip starter set with the brush itself are a large and small toothpaste. Brush options include both metal and plastic brushes, offered in a variety of colors.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen
La Roche-Posay's Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen is a daily moisturizer that's packed with antioxidants and SPF 50 to help protect your skin against free radicals. No wonder it's a favorite among our very own staffers.
Nyx Professional Makeup Color-Correcting Concealer Palette
You may already know and love Nyx Professional Makeup products, but if you're not already acquainted with the brand's Color Correcting Concealer Palette, we'd consider it one of the best finds at Target. It has all the right shades for color-correcting (use the green for balancing redness, and the yellow for buffing out dark circles) and also comes in two concealer shades light/medium and medium/dark.
SheaMoisture African Black Soap with Shea Butter
The SheaMoisture African Black Soap with Shea Butter made from palm ash, tamarind extract, tar, and plantain peel cleanses your skin while absorbing excess oil. We also love that it's super portable for stowing in a travel bag and works on all skin types.
Pixi Glow Tonic
Pixi's Glow Tonic gently exfoliates and brightens to reveal healthy, glowing skin featuring 5 percent glycolic acid to slough away dead skin, soothing aloe vera, and antioxidant-rich ginseng to protect skin from free radical damage.
