I had a great experience at one of my favorite stores this week. Did you know that many Target stores in Los Angeles and Orange County, California now have a beauty concierge to help their customers? I met up with Lorine, a beauty concierge, at my local Target store after work one day this week. It was so helpful and refreshing to have someone give me some personalized service and attention, without feeling like I had to spend a lot of money on cosmetics.
Lorina was very knowledgeable about makeup, skincare and hair care. She said that she attended an intense training program with Target. In fact, Lorena also happens to be a licensed cosmotologist. I asked her if she would suggest a lipstick that would not be drying to my lips. She asked me questions on whether long-lasting or shimmer were important. I liked that she wanted more information about what would work for me before suggestiong something. She shared a couple of recommendations with me and gave me some advice on using a lip balm with sunscreen as a base for my lipstick. She said with summer coming, it is really important to protect our lips from the damaging sun rays.
I received a tour of the various product lines. There are anti-aging, natural, hyper-allergenic, and organic specialty lines now at Target. I can see why the Target concierges undergo an intensive training program with so many choices. They are also "brand agnostic", which means they do not subscribe to one particular brand.
This was true my experience with Lorina. We talked about illuminators, beauty balms and mascara extensively and she recommended products from different brands. I was impressed by this because at Target, there are many products from wonderfully frugal brands such as e.l.f cosmetics to salon quality brands like Enjoy and Fekkai.
Target's beauty concierge personnel can help with
- skin care
- nail care
- body hygiene
- hair products
- hair appliances
The best part, there is no cost for this service. As you know, I love streamlining activities and now, I can really get more accomplished while at Target.
Each Target with a beauty concierge will have the hours posted in the make up aisle at the store. No appointment is ncessary. The beauty concierge will be wearing a black apron.
The Beauty Concierge Program will launch at stores in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Northern Virginia.
