Target’s beauty aisle is getting even better! This week, the retailer announced a new inclusive initiative, which means they are now offering more brands that meet the needs of shoppers with medium to deep skin tones.
Available now on Target.com and in stores starting May 20th, the store brought in eight existing beauty brands — Coloured Raine, Makeup Geek, EveryHue Beauty, HALEYS Beauty, Hue Noir, The Lip Bar, Reina Rebelde and Violet Voss — which together create an assortment of cosmetics designed to work on deeper skin tones.
“We know our guests have a wide range of beauty needs and preferences, and we want to make sure Target has the best assortment for all hair types or skin tones,” Christina Hennington, senior vice president of Beauty and Essentials at Target said in a release. “These eight new cosmetic brands will further our range of shade options — from foundation to lip — and are available at incredible prices. We’ll continue to listen to our guests to understand what beauty products they’re looking for at Target, and look forward to seeing their response to these new cosmetic brands.”
This continues Target’s trend of pumping up its beauty: The retailer added an array of K-Beauty brands and eco-friendly options to its stores in the beauty department over the past year.
