The world is abundant with beauty retailers, with a few of our obvious favorites being Sephora and Ulta. However, with all the niche beauty brands popping up, we can’t help but feel like we’re missing out on something by not digging deeper into the retail space. After all, there are plenty of online boutiques that carry incredibly curated products that we might be overlooking elsewhere. So, in an effort to open our horizons to new shops, we’ve rounded up a few online vendors that currently offer the best hair, makeup and skin care products on the market.

Planet Beauty

Founded in sunny Newport Beach, California, Planet Beauty is a one-stop-shop for all luxurious and innovative beauty brands. Its prestigious product selection includes Caudalie, Dermalogica, By Terry, and even the French-favorite brand, Bioderma. 


Beauty Bay

Expect to find more than just products on this website—Beauty Bay also includes makeup tutorials and a “shop the look” feature that allows users to browse the products featured in makeup looks uploaded by actual customers. 



Similar to Sephora’s online community feature, Beautylish also provides customers with a wide online forum full of product reviews and tutorials. So, not only do you get access to brands not typically found in Sephora (think Instagram-famous companies like Jeffree Star and fashion week favorites like Embryolisse), you also get a surplus of tips from their beauty-obsessed online users.


Cap Beauty

With only two stores in the United States, it’s a major perk that Cap Beauty has such an awesome website to shop. The wellness-based store is jam-packed with edible beauty boosters like kale powder and moon dust, as well as popular brands like One Love Organics and Vintner’s Daughter.


Beauty Tap

As one of the most innovative markets for skin care, Korea is a top favorite location for stocking up on skin-saving products. Luckily, Beauty Tap is our gateway to all things K-beauty without ever having to leave our houses. You’ll find stellar brands like Iope, AmorePacific and Innisfree among its pages, which is sure to make your online shopping cart full very quickly.


Sleek Shop

Previously called Sleek Hair, this online boutique specializes in all things hair care, offering awesome salon-only products like Olaplex and Davines. As a bonus, the shop also offers a few makeup and skin care options as well.
