Ad failed to load

Sephora may be many beauty junkies' go-to when it comes to makeup and skin care, but the well-known black and white hued store isn't the only great place to snag all your beauty essentials. These 15 beauty products from Target are proof that a name doesn't always signify quality and your new must-have doesn't always have to come from the most expected place.

While not a drugstore, Target hosts a plethora of drugstore brands plus a mix of other common products you can't snag at your local CVS. From ultra affordable beauty like Wet n' Wild to higher-end goods from UK-based brand No.7, the retailer is currently slaying the beauty game by offering one of the widest rages of shoppable, in-store goods.

If you're a beauty junkie, you've probably visited the Target beauty aisle, but the breadth of products seems to be ever expanding. What are the best items that Target has to offer, though? The answer: a lot.
