The 12 Best Beauty Kits for 2023 Goals


Discover affordable beauty products from Sunday Riley, Kopari, BYOMA and more. Nothing against Disney World, but we firmly believe that Target is the happiest place on earth. 

What's better than taking a leisurely stroll down the aisles (after treating yourself to a cup of Starbucks Bee Coffee, of course) and filling your cart with all the essentials on your shopping list, along with a variety of other fun treats you'll find along the way? We don't think so. 

Not only is it a premier destination for trendy home decor and fun fashion collaborations, but it's also a great place to shop for all things beautiful. “On TikTok, you can find everything from the hottest brands to emerging new brands to clean brands, and at all price points,” says beauty expert and esthetician Erica Marie Gatt. 
One of the best ways to find affordable beauty products and discover top brands is to shop Target's extensive line of beauty kits. With options across all categories, there's something (or at least a lot) for everyone. 

You'd be surprised how Target has repositioned itself as the go-to destination for TikTok beauty finds, celebrity makeup artist favorites, and dermatologist-loved skincare. 

Because we never sleep when it comes to beauty trends, we hired a beauty expert to help us spend a few hours researching Target's best beauty sets, from bath and body accessories to makeup and skin-care sets. 

Overall, the best Kopari Forever Faves bath and body set. Coconut oil is the star of this brand, and you can buy three of their best-selling products here. 

There's a delicious body scrub that uses shredded coconut shells and brown sugar to slough off dead skin cells, and a powerful lip gloss that'll keep your lips hydrated and perfectly shiny. But our favorite addition? 

Their coconut oil is basically pure coconut oil that works wonders on dry cuticles and can be used as a body butter, hair mask, and more. Best Skin CareSunday Riley Good Genes Power Couple Mini Kit 

This is Gatt's go-to, and he says the pair is powerful at brightening your complexion. The kit includes the retinol-based Luna Sleeping Night Oil and the brand's popular Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment (a long-time favorite of the Byrdie team).
