All The Makeup You Should Be Buying From Target’s Summer Flash Sale

If you need anything in a pinch, from ice trays to a gingham monokini, you know you can find it at Target. And, just in case you’re short a few things for your rapidly approaching summer vacation or a low-key backyard BBQ you forgot you’d volunteered to host and Target beckons, you should take a second and swing through the makeup aisles, too.

From a $10 rose quartz setting spray that’s as soothing is it is effective, to a liquid shimmer shadow that might just be a dupe of Stila’s award-winning formula, the retailer’s summer makeup selection is truly a can’t-miss, especially considering the mega sale that’s about to go down.

We’ve rounded up the best new makeup at Target in the slides ahead, because we know you’re going to be there anyway…


Whether you’re a Jessica Alba fan or just love more-natural makeup — or both — Target is the place for you. Honest Beauty’s two-in-one primer and mascara isn’t the cheapest mascara you’ll find at the drugstore, but it will deliver longer, fuller, more separated lashes than many mass brands. Plus, it comes in a chic tube that feels fancier than its competition.

Honest Beauty, $17.98, available at Target


Two pumps of this refreshing rose mist locks our makeup in place for hours — and one pump at 3 p.m. is just enough to get us to the end of the work day.

Pacifica, $9.99, available at Target


If you need one more push to try this buzzy $10 shadow palette, let Alisha Boe’s stunning MTV Movie Awards red carpet look convince you. Makeup artist Beau Nelson used the golden and brown shades to give her eyes pretty definition.

Maybelline, $10.99, available at Target


If there was ever a time to use lash primer, it’s in the summer. This lightweight formula conditions and primes lashes for mascara so you don’t end up with raccoon eyes after five minutes in the sun.

COVERGIRL, $6.99, available at Target


This new foundation serum, which is specifically formulated for sensitive skin, already has more than 90 glowing reviews on Target’s site. People love that the formula provides light to medium coverage, moisturizes, and has an SPF 15 built-in. Better still, the collection has just expanded its range from 5 to 13 shades.

No7, $15.99, available at Target


Whether you want bold brows and bare lids or smoky shadow and cat-eye liner— this set of seven brow/shadow/liner powders has you covered.

e.l.f., $12, available at Target


Maybelline’s new dual-sided lip product contains matte lipstick plus a plumping gloss, so you get two looks in one.

Maybelline, $9.99, available at Target


Instead of fighting summer sweat, embrace it with dewy skin. NYX’s new glow drops can be worn alone or mixed into makeup depending on the shine level you’re going for.

NYX Cosmetics, $16.98, available at Target


Like Stila’s liquid shimmer eyeshadow s, Pixi’s new glimmer creams are intensely sparkly and slide on effortlessly. The one big difference: They’re $10 cheaper.

Pixi, $15, available at Target


When you sweep on this pressed powder with a feather brush, it delivers a super-soft wash of color that reads as golden bronze instead of an obvious red-ish orange.

Milani, $6.49, available at Target


A blush and bronzer in one, both cream-based colors blend well and give skin a believable glow.

e.l.f., $6, available at Target
