Default Returning makeup to Target

Has anyone returned makeup to Target? Just curious if they will accept an open return. I looked through their website but it doesn't say anything about cosmetics.

Nevermind. I think I found the answer. The back of the receipt says All returns and exchanges must be new, unused and have original packaging and accessories. Some items cannot be returned if opened.

You could always call and ask the store's policy. I know Target is really a pain about any returns.

Wal-Mart gave me a hassle one time about returning a piece of makeup so I don't buy such from them now if it's something I've never tried before.

This is good to know about Target.

So now I usually buy from Walgreen's or Rite Aid, which has a makeup return policy.

I believe ULTA has the same policy. I don't know about Sephora though. I haven't been there yet.

When I buy new foundations I usually try to get it at Walgreens or CVS so I can return if need be. Never gave it much thought with Target until now.

Huh, I've always found Target to be quite good about returns: 90 days with receipt is their rule.

However, if you're talking opened electronics and similar things, they do have a pretty strict policy about those which is not as generous (but is also in line with electronics store policies [Best Buy, etc.]).

I have no idea as to cosmetics, however.

As usual, you ladies are a font of information!

I don't know about Target return policies. I like to shop at Target, but the only stores in this area are too far away for regular trips with fuel prices so high.

I have never returned a used makeup item to Walmart, but I did return a once-used hair item and a barely used bath gel (though you could not tell they were used from looking). The people behind the counter barely looked at the items and asked no questions. But that might not be the case with used makeup.

CVS has a makeup return policy (I think). I know Rite-Aid does. Good to know about Walgreen's, too.

If you used a makeup, i can understand why they wouldn't take it back, because they can't sell it again. I buy mine from walmart, because i know what the perfect shades for my skin tone is from seventeen magazine

I regularly return makeup to WalMart and they don't bat an eyelash. If I buy something, get it home and find it's not going to work for me...back to the store it goes.

I have never had an issue returning opened makeup to Walmart either. As long as I have a receipt and an original package, its all good.
