The Cos Bar & Target: a Perfect Pairing

Image credit: The Cos Bar.

 A good friend of mine, and an insider at Target, let me know a few days ago that The Cos Bar, a high end cosmetic boutique, will be partnering with Target to enhance our cosmetic purchasing experience! You can watch the promotional video on The Cos Bar website. While I don't know exactly how the partnership will work, I have seen a few press releases floating around that claim The Cos Bar (along with other boutiques in the partnership) will create affordable collections for its customers! Currently, The Cos Bar is only available in select locations with boutiques peppered throughout the Southwest, two in Colorado, one in Texas, and one in Minnesota, so their partnership with Target will make the luxury of The Cos Bar more readily available to everyone. In the mean time, you can go here to to see if there is a Cos Bar near you and check out the goods. They also boast loads of events every month where you can go, try products, get pampered, and mingle with other makeup lovers.

I popped into my nearby Edina Boutique to get a feel for the shopping environment and I was not disappointed! While I happened to arrive close to closing time, the women working there were more than happy to help me with my cosmetic quandaries. Despite carrying high end names like Chanel, Armani, and Cle de Peau, The Cos Bar has a very casual and friendly feel; one where I can feel free to roam and gawk without the pressure to buy, yet inviting enough to ask questions when they arise. While there, I asked for a list of their upcoming events. Every boutique has their own website that they update with beauty events, but I noticed that The Cos Bar closest to me hadn't updated their list recently, so the woman who was helping me gave me the two biggies for February. On the 18th, they will be having La Mer facials and, later in the month (date to come soon), a Bobbi Brown Color Event. I, for one, will be all over the color event as I purchased a lip gloss from her summer collection while there. Much like Bobbi, I am all about the mix of nudes and zesty brights this spring and summer.

In the event you don't have a Cos Bar near you, don't fear! It's reported that Target will have all of its stores equipped with The Cos Bar goods by May 6. I'll keep you updated, but I would love it if readers could keep me informed of when and where they have their first The Cos Bar at Target sighting.
