Designer Cosmetics at Target: Yay or Nay?

JK Jemma Kidd Display in Target

If you’ve stopped by your local Target recently, you may have noticed they’re carrying three new collections from some big names in the makeup world-Jemma Kidd, Napoleon Perdis, and Pixi. These products are exclusively to Target, and are touted as more affordable alternatives to department store cosmetics, but at prices ranging from $12-39, I’m rather inclined to stick to my department store cosmetics thank you very much!

JK Jemma Kidd Eyeshadows-$18 each

I swatched a few of these while at Target, and honestly wasn’t all that impressed. The pigmentation is decent but nothing special, and at $18 I wouldn’t really call these “affordable.” Call my crazy, but at these prices why wouldn’t I just go for MAC?

Honestly I wasn’t terribly wowed byanything, nor was I inclined to purchase anything from these three lines. I’ll admit that the introduction of these three “higher-end” lines into Target makes for easier one-stop shopping for the woman on-the-go, but for now I’ll be sticking to my usual cosmetics lines.

Would you purchaser high-end cosmetics from Target?
