I like obscure beauty and makeup brands! I like indie brands, I like little niche brands, and I like brands that you may have never heard of or even used. You might think I’m referring to Korean or Japanese brands but nope, I’m not.
I’m actually talking about brands like Dianne Brill, 4160 Tuesdays, Johnson and Johnson’s skincare, and more.
So here are fun places you probably never thought to shop beauty at and where you can discover a plethora of makeup, beauty, and fragrance brands you may never even have heard of!
LuckyScent can only be described as the crème de la crème of the fragrance world. From niche to indie to high end brands like Annick Goutal (a favorite of mine!) and 4160 Tuesday this is the end all shop for all your fragrance needs. I have a huge obsession with interesting, unique, and obscure fragrance and Luckyscent is truly the perfect location to get my fix!
Two locations, one online store, and 140 years of history makes up Smallflower which sells personal care items, makeup, beauty, and health products from brands like Outremer (aka L’Aromarine), Diptyque, Perfumeria Gal, and more!
Brands like Paul & Joe, Rouge Bunny Rouge, and the entire line of Dianne Brill Cosmetics call Beauty Habit home. This incredible online store sells some of thee most interesting indie, high end, and niche makeup and fragrance brands imaginable. It’s a beauty and makeup mecca for those who like unique products!
One of my favorite online stores for scoring incredible deals on new niche and indie brand fragrances like 4160 Tuesdays, Tokyo Milk, and Imaginary Authors. Best part? You can buy complete decant fragrance sets to try plus they have an incredible rewards program!
The Vermont Country Store
Mail order is fabulously fun when you’re shopping it from the Vermont Country Store! Old school remedies, penny candy, and yes, even beauty and makeup can be purchased here including BB Cream, Johnson and Johnson’s Skincare, and other vintage finds like Max Factor Pan Stick makeup and 1960’s Coty Fragrances.
Feel Unique not only gives us access to Bourjois Paris but also a range of Maybelline and L’Oreal products not available in the US and exclusive to Asia and even Europe! This fun shop carries items like high end fragrances and budget friendly makeup pieces that can’t be purchased in any store!
Feel free to share some obscure places you like to shop beauty! I’d love to hear about them!
