Target Beauty Return Policy—The Basics

Target allows its customers to return beauty products within the following time frames:

  • 90 days with the original receipt
  • 120 days if you paid with a Target RedCard
  • One year if the product you purchased is a Target-owned brand

What Happens if You Don’t Return the Items on Time?

If the time limit for returning items has expired, Target will refuse to accept your return. You may still be able to exchange the items you’re unhappy with at the discretion of the store manager.


You can return makeup after 90 days, but the company won’t grant you a full refund. Target will reward you the equivalent of the products’ lowest price on a merchandise gift card, which you’ll be able to use only for in-store purchases.

Can You Return Opened Makeup to Target?

Target allows its customers to return opened and slightly used beauty products within 90 days of the purchase or 120 days if the purchase was made with a Target RedCard. The company does not accept empty packages or fully-used products.

The Target beauty return policy also applies to defective products, such as dried makeup, but only if you have the original receipt. You may be denied a refund or exchange if the items you want to return are damaged.

Can You Return Beauty Products to Target Without a Receipt?

It is possible to return an item without a receipt, as long as you provide another proof of purchase.

Target can trace purchases if you used one of the following methods of payment:

  • Target RedCard
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • AmEx
  • Discover
  • Personal check
  • Target gift card

If you paid in cash, Target won’t be able to trace your purchase. In case of an online purchase, you can find your digital barcode or receipt in your Target.com account.
