Two Ways to Win a Selection of Beauty Goodies From Cos Bar at Target [10 WINNERS]

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

The Cos Bar Target Giveaway

I gotta hand it to Target for keeping things fresh, and I don’t just mean in the produce aisle (ba-dum-bum cha!). They’re always trying new things and partnering with new designers and lines, like the limited-edition products and regional boutique brands showcased in The Shops at Target.


There’s Boston’s Polka Dog Bakery (biscuits and bones for good dogs, good dogs!), Connecticut’s Privet House (vintage, bohemian-chic curiosities, antiques and home decor), San Francisco’s The Candy Store (sweet treats in glass jars), Miami’s The Webster (home of Miami’s passion for très chic fashion) and Aspen’s luxurious Cos Bar (where Aspen flirts with fake lashes).

The Cos Bar at Target collection features affordable, limited-edition body care products, bath accessories, beauty tools, manicure essentials and cosmetic bags — all for under $20 each.

Haven’t been able to see the Cos Bar collection in person yet? Well, maybe we can take care of that now. 🙂

  29. Peggy Chung-Wan says:

    Tonight is Farmer’s Market night. Love me some local ice cream.

  30. Sue C. says:

    Whenever I go to a drugstore I always check out the makeup section first then try to remember why I’m really there. Nothing makes my day like finding a new display!

  31. Shaylee says:

    Perks of working at a winery = free wine on a friday night!

  32. Melissa says:

    My trips to target have been cut short lately due to a heavy work load, but I’ve been meaning to check out this line. Since I’m officially on summer vacation, I might just make a trip tomorrow to take a little peak. Woohoo!!

  33. Vanessa says:

    I am a major nail polish junkie but I have to say, some of my favorite polishes come from the Sally Hansen section of Target!

  34. laura says:

    i just had my graduation commencement ceremony today!

  35. Lily says:

    We have a huge anime convention in our city every spring and even though I don’t personally Cosplay I love seeing everyone dress up in their costumes!

  36. ceci says:

    I’ve no experience using false lashes. I wonder if their popularity will make volumizing mascara redundant in the future.

  37. Vanessa says:

    My sister graduates from High School on Tuesday. So weird, she grew up so fast! I cant handle it hehe 😀

  38. Quinctia says:

    I love seeing what cosplay people come up with!

    I think my favorite DS brand is a tie between Physician’s Formula and Milani. PF has a lot of great powders, and Milani does great lippies and eye pencils.

  39. Heather says:

    I’ve never tried cosplay myself, but I love seeing how people put together their own costumes 🙂

  40. blkrox says:

    Sometimes it seems like the ONLY reason I go to the drugstore is to buy makeup, LoL

    I prefer body butters!

  51. IsabelG says:

  55. Daniella says:

    I prefer body butters they make me feel so self indulgent..and fave brand is Milani!

  56. Nalina M says:

    I love seeing new drugstore brands pop up. It’s nice to have an affordable and well-performing alternative to the high-end brands. I’ve been super surprised with Revlon lately and how well their products perform. Maybe Cos Bar is another one?!

  57. Ginelle says:

    One of my best friends asked me to be a brides maid last night, so excited! 🙂

    I saw this stuff at Target but haven’t taken the plunge on any of it yet!

  61. Lori says:

    My favorite drugstore brand is eos. Such amazing lip balms!!

  62. Mich says:

    Unfortunately, I have no game plan for tonight. I’ve been taking care of my Mom all week. Her knee is swollen from her arthritis. My sister offered to stay with her so I could go out but, I don’t have anyone to go out with 🙁

  63. Liz says:

    It’s impossible for me to avoid the makeup and beauty section when I step foot in Target!

  64. Amanda says:

    I’ve never done cosplay. I went to work last night and got home early! 🙂

  65. Betony says:

    I bought the cos bar blueberry face wipes. Mmmmmm, smells soooo good!

  66. Sunita Magar says:

    Truth be told, I was never interested in doing cosplay. :/ But, I totally dig the hair colors! PINK! BLUE! PLATINUM BLONDE! ;D (Because I have boring black hair which I have never dyed before for fear of damaging it) Maybe, I will get a wig in one of these colors one day. 🙂

    Also, I am a makeup newbie. If only I could get my hands on this kit to play around with…

  67. Tina says:

    Our gameplan for tonight is to take our two kids to the beach for the evening. There’s an awesome boardwalk there with tons of rides and games to play. We’ll get you’re typical boardwalk food like funnel cake or ice cream and just make it a fun family night.

  68. Y. says:

    yesterday i came out with one of essie’s polishes:)

  69. Julie says:

    Love Target! Have to check out Cos Bar.

  70. Susan G says:

    I am on the dry skin gal team, so body butters make me happy. I’ve tried fancier ones, but always go back to the Body Shop butters. Thanks for reminding me that Target has cool stuff!

  71. Gail says:

    Happy Weekend and thanks for the giveaway

  72. Not sure I have a favorite drugstore brand makeup, but I have been loyal to Cover Girl pressed powder for a good 20 years now.

  73. Janet says:

    I always have to check the makeup section when I go to Target 🙂

  74. Katrina says:

    I don’t make it to Target very often but always love it when I do.

  75. Traci Reid says:

    I’m going to Target this afternoon….I’m going to check this out!!!

  76. Patty says:

    I haven’t been in Target for a long time, so maybe it’s time to see all the new things they have!

  77. Brit says:

    Tonight might be a stay-in night for me. I’m thinking about starting one of the many shows I have queued up on Netflix–maybe Downton Abbey or Mad Men.

  78. Maria says:

    I can’t wait until we get Target in Canada!

  79. Calli says:

    I love target, I go there for anything, from toothpaste to nail polish to a swimsuit to a watch for work 🙂

  80. Nancy says:

    I love Target for trying and buying beauty products! They manage to have things well stocked!

    I haven’t taken a trip there recently.. and I have two gift cards to spend.. I need to go check it out soon!
    Enjoy your evening.

  81. Avery says:

    I bought a nail file from this line and then accidentally threw it away! Very sad.

  82. Mary says:

    Cosplay is one of my favorite things to do! There’s nothing more fun than completely absorbing the personality of another character, especially one that’s really a fan-favorite. My go-to cosplay is a female Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7. I choose to make the character feminine to make it more unique, and it’s such fun seeing people’s reaction to their favorite character.

  83. Andrea says:

    hi Karen and Tabs! I just moved to LA last month and it’s super hot. I’ve become way too addicted to MAC’s Fix +!

  84. Theresa says:

    I love Physicians Formula, Milani and Revlon :)!

  85. TiffanyRashelle says:

    I love Cos Bar! Definately love how target is doing the small shop sell! Nevermind that im addicted to make-up!!! 🙂

  86. shahneela says:

    i love wearing false eyelashes..

  87. Justine says:

    I like Milani as a drugstore makeup brand.

  88. clara wong says:

    cosplay…their labels don’t look cheap. their scrubs smell so good too 🙂

  89. Sherry B. says:

    I love trying new DS lines!

  90. Nina says:

    I saw this display yesterday when the Hubs and I made a Target run. I wasnt able to browse but I really want to check it out – maybe tomorrow morning!

  91. Anjali says:

    Lately, my favorite drugstore brand has been Revlon …

  92. C R Williams says:

    I would def love to win this one. I will win both!! Yippee!

  93. jane says:

    I really want to try the new Revlon chubby sticks.

  94. Madelynn says:

    Cosplay is kinda odd. But I do love renaissance faires.

  95. Danielle says:

    Cosplay can be cool, but it can also be those weird 300 pound guys in tights who haven’t showered in a week. Yes, I have been to ComicCon.

  96. Tania says:

    I love body butters over lotions. My current favorite and has been for a while is Yes to Carrots brand from target. Love the texture and smell of it.

  97. Janelle says:

    I’m always down for dressing up in costume! If I have an awesome costume planned, I would definitely wear it. 🙂

  98. Xochil says:

    I love body butters, they work better on my dry patches than lotion.

  99. Erica K says:

    imma have to get me some of those lashes! i also want to try their cleansing wipes, saw them on their website with their awesome leopard design

  100. Bonnie says:

    I don’t usually go to the drugstore for the express purpose of buying cosmetics, but I sure do love looking (and sometimes buying!) while I’m there.

  101. Liz G. says:

    I’ve been to Aspen twice and visited the Cos Bar each time. It is a great store so I was really excited to hear about the mini-line at Target.

  102. Liz says:

    I listen to my skin when it comes to choosing between body butter and body lotion. If it’s on the dryer side it gets butter, and if it only needs a little help it gets lotion.

  103. Janet says:

    Ohhhh, what a cool giveaway! I’ve been wanting to play with falsies lately. This is perfectly up my alley! Thanks, Karen! 😀

  104. Lili says:

    I like lotion a little better than body butter

  105. Darlene says:

    Wow…great giveaway…thank you.

  106. Jennifer says:

    Prefer body butter

  107. Roxanne says:

    False eyelashes are one thing I have yet to try.

  108. Tania says:

    Loved body butters until St. Ives and I met. Love the Deep Restoring 24hr moisture!!

  109. Emily says:

  112. L Davis says:

    This prize pack is a good way to start an awesome girl’s night in.

  113. Tierra says:

    I also go to the drugstore for a MU fix quite often! We don’t have a Sephora in my town. Maybe that is a good thing though…at least for my wallet!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  114. Liz says:

    I gotta say after purchasing a few high end mascaras, I just love Jordana mascara at Walgreens and really don’t need to look further.

  115. Crystal says:

    Body butters > Body lotions IMO !

  116. Nina says:

    currently waiting for the NBA finals to start.

  117. Jane says:

    I went to cvs the other day so that i can get sunscreen to wear under my makeup 😀

  118. Elaine says:

    I’ll have to go to target now to check these out in person.

  119. Jennifer says:

    I go to the drugstore at least twice a week just to buy makeup or nail polish. My brand of choice is Revlon but I will try just about any brand if it catches my eye!

  120. Yao says:

    Hope you had a good weekend!

  121. Prima says:

    Is it bad that i only hope to win because those green tweezers are super cute?!?

  122. SANDY says:

    I go to the drugstore just to see what is new in makeup- so many great items and fun to shop when you can afford and no one is pushing a makeover on you

  123. Lori says:

    Game plan for tonight is to watch Game 3 of the NBA finals between OKC and Miami and hope we win. (I’m from OKC). THUNDER UP!

  124. Carolyn N. says:

    Recently discovered body butters! They’re amazing!

  125. Larie says:

    I rarely go to a drugstore just to buy makeup, but I always make my way to the beauty aisle just to “see what’s new!” I think my favorite drugstore brand is Milani, or maybe Revlon 😉
    Larie recently posted … A Success Story!

  126. maggie mae says:

    oh I really want to try their nail polish

  127. Lynn says:

    I haven’t bought drugstore beauty products, besides nail polish, for a few year i’m stuck on Sephora…I hope i win that…i really want to make VIB for next year. I got my eyes set on tarte make up right now.

  128. Rena says:

    So sad my daughter didn’t call her Dad on Father’s Day, and her Dad pays some of her bills while she works a low paying job. On the bright side, she’s working.

    Haven’t tried anything from the Cos Ba,r yet!

  129. BB says:

    Body butter but I feel like it doesn’t last as long!

  133. Tricia Fitzgerald says:
