The retail world is understandably pumped about Amazon Prime Day and the incredible sales it is offering to Amazon Prime members. However, Target has responded with a major Summer 2018 beauty sale of its own. The big red bullseye retailer has confirmed a one-day, online-only sale that will begin the morning of Tuesday, July 17 and run through 11:59 p.m. CT. So it's a full day of sweet savings. What does this mean for you beauty routine, your cosmetics bag, your bathroom closet, and your skin?

According to the press release issued by Target's corporate office, the single-day sale is open to all shoppers on its site. No membership is required. It includes toys, electronics, furniture, and household items, as well as the aforementioned cosmetics.

The sale is easy to shop. All you have to do is head over to Target.com all day on Tuesday, July 17 and browse dozens of deals from Target-exclusive brands and other nationally available brands.

The press release also states that Target will off 30 percent off Target-exclusive home brands. There's also 30 percent off Target-exclusive kids' home brands. If you spend $20 on books, you save an additional $5.

We'll pause for a moment to allow you to fully process all of this good news and all of these savings. But we know you are really here for the deep discounts on cosmetics.
