We’ve all got our favorite stores: The ones we head to when we need the finishing touches on a look for a party, or when we’re going through a break up and need a little retail therapy. Reliable retailers are a necessity in every girl’s life, but there is one downside to consistently visiting your usual stomping grounds — you tend miss out on some of the other amazing places to shop.
Considering the time, expertise and money spent on figuring out which foundation to buy, whether you should be using waterproof mascara and which shampoo is right for your hair, shopping for beauty products can be daunting, at the least. The difference, though, is in where the products are being sold. If you’re searching for a natural skin care remedy at an organic body shop, you need to know that the salespeople know what they’re talking about. When you’re trying a new lipstick for the first time, it’s nice to be able to do so in a well-lit, comfortable environment. Stores make a big difference, and knowing which ones are the best is the key to having a positive experience.
To help you find whatever kind of experience you’re looking for when it comes to buying beauty products, we’ve rounded up 25 of the best places to shop. Whether you’re searching for indie brands, drugstore prices or monthly delivery services, there’s a store that’ll make you even more excited to shop for hair, makeup and skin care products than you already were. Take a look at the 25 best places to shop for beauty products above. Fair warning, though — no wallet is safe.
