When it comes to beauty, Target has been stepping up its game in recent years, with designer items from Jemma Kidd, Napoleon Perdis, and even Cos Bar lining its shelves. And now Target is set to test out a service component to its cosmetics aisle. This Sunday, the retailer will launch the Target Beauty Concierge program in 28 Chicagoland stores.

Mirror and iPad in tow, these advisers will be stationed at a special kiosk in the beauty department where they will dole out samples and cosmetics advice. So if you happen to be in the Chicago metro area for the next nine months (the length of time of the trial run), you can be greeted with a new kind of Target experience. And if the program is a hit, good news: Target may add the service to upward of 450 of its stores.
