5 Unexpected Fashion Sites That Also Stock Cult Beauty Favourites



Is there anyone out there who hates surprises? Not us. We'll take them any which way they come, but we the surprises that hold a special place in our hearts are those ones that come in the form of stumbling upon a new slew of shoppable beauty goodies. (Bonus points if they ship to Australia). Hallelujah! 

We've been getting a lot of our favourite kind of surprise lately—it seems like all our fashion stores are jumping on the beauty bandwagon. And we are not complaining. Don't get us wrong, Sephora, we love you dearly, but sometimes to keep a good thing going, you've got to change it up a little. 

Scroll down for the unexpected beauty finds we stumbled over on our favourite fashion sites. 


Yes, Urban Outfitters is great for when we need haute hippie vibes in our apartment and to stock up on festival gear but beauty? Well, we'll be damned. We are talking an absolute goldmine of cult products: Herbivore, Mario Badescu, Anastasia Beverly Hills and even a whole host of Korean goodies. It's a veritable rabbit hole of must-haves. 

Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak ($24)

Petal Multi-Use Oil ($37)

As you'd expect from the very beautiful boho site, there's endless 60s inspired gear floating around but who knew their very vintage site also housed beauty?

In true Free People style, the beauty offerings have just as strong hippy vibes as their clothing but who doesn't love the sound of bathing themselves in crystal-infused oil? It just makes your pampering all the more special.

Little Barn Apothecary Flowers + Pink Clay Dry Shampoo ($21)

When you think Net-a-Porter, you think fashion, right? Us too. But don't forget that the influential site also stocks some of the world's most luxurious beauty brands (yes, Eva Lom and Charlotte Tilbury, we see you). Our top pick for adding to cart? The constantly talked about (and notoriously difficult to track down in Australia) Oribe. These products are worth getting into debt for.

We're constantly trawling this site for home inspo for when we get a real grown-up apartment (one day!) but since we've discovered their beauty range is just as adult and boutique as their homewares, we've been taking regular trips there for a different reason. The beauty range houses vegan and organic brands, as well as products that have already reached that cult status (21 seed oils in one product is serious business). These specialist products are like an investment piece for your cupboard and we can feel the urge to start adulting before we've even pressed 'purchase'.  

French Girl Organics Crème Lumière ($58)

Now this store is no surprise to us in the beauty department but it's pretty surprisingly in its offerings. Have you checked in with their makeup lately? It's always on-trend colour-wise and always wallet-friendly. Plus, they're still stocking their shea butter rich body glow which is practically a staple in every Australian woman's bathroom cabinet. Have another look—we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. 

Sportsgirl Pout About it Bitten Lipstick in Plum ($10)
