Ulta Beauty mini shops coming to more than 100 Target stores nationwide in August | US & World News

(CNN) — The next time you do a Target run for milk, cereal, toilet paper and shampoo, you can add a new item to the list: pricey makeup brands that weren’t available there before.

That’s because the chain is opening Ulta Beauty mini shops in August in more than 100 Target locations nationwide and online, which will bring more than 50 prestige skincare and cosmetic brands like Clinique, MAC Cosmetics and Smashbox into its stores for the first time.

Garment production has quietly accelerated to breakneck speeds over the past three decades, easing young and old consumers into thinking of their clothes as disposable. It began in the 1990s, so the story goes, when the founder of Zara spun the fast fashion wheel into motion. Zara abandoned the concept of fashion seasons for the thrill of constant novelty.
