The Shops at Target: Cos Bar (and a Giveaway!)

Target does not stop! The latest twist on its designer partnership model comes in the form of The Shops at Target, which will officially launch on May 6th. Through the program Target will partner directly with shop owners of specialty stores and local boutiques to co-create affordable, limited-edition collections. The ones I’m most exciting for are The Webster (a fantastic super high-end boutique in Miami) for fashion and Cos Bar for beauty. I visited my first Cos boutique back when I was in Charleston and couldn’t believe how well curated their selection was (how are they not in Manhattan yet!??). Cos stocks body care, bath accessories, beauty tools, and bags from a slew of luxury brands (check them out here). The boutique owners say they were inspired by their signature gift wrap for the bright leopard print featured across the beauty tools and bags of their collection for Target, while bath and body products reflect their favorite scents. Everything in the line retails for under $20 and includes body care products, bath accessories, beauty tools, manicure essentials, and cosmetic bags.

The collection may not launch until next month, but 10 Beauty Snob readers will win a bundle of products! All you have to do is leave a comment below and we will select 10 winners at random on April 25th, 2012. U.S. residents only please.

  1. I love the selection at the Cos Bar! I have shopped at their store in Maui, it was so well stocked with luxurious products. Can’t wait for my local Target to have these products!

  2. Target does it again! How cool! I hope I win, if I don’t (or do) I will probably end up buying some stuff anyways πŸ™‚

  3. The deep blue color alone would make me want to buy them. I have really sensitive skin though, so trying them out first would be great for me.

  4. Looking forward to the launch of these new products. I have been happily surprised by Target’s launches over the years and it’s a guarantee that I’ll be one of the first in the store when it arrives. I love trying new products. Grandmas need good skin care too !!!!!!

  5. Eeeeeee! How exciting! I’ve been waiting to get my hands on Cos Bar stuff ever since they announced this, especially since there isn’t one near me. Gotta love Target for bringing awesomeness to the masses. πŸ™‚

  6. I recently moved from the Minneapolis area to the Hamptons. But you know what’s missing from all of the luxury shops here? CosBar!!! I miss it!

  7. I’m tired because I’ve spent the past four days visiting my Mother. Trying to catch-up on email when I saw your giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. I would love to have this set. I know this product has to be great with an inspiration of bright leopard print. You are awesome for doing this giveaway.

    have a great weekend

  9. Love, Love, Love this idea! V. Excited for them to arrive to my Target, would be even more excited to win some! Love when you give us a tip on new products!
