[infobox subtitle="Store Raid #1" bg="red" color="white" opacity="off" space="30" link="no link"]UO Beauty Buys[/infobox] When it comes to buying beauty products, it's always easy to rely on our favorite cosmetic and drug stores for anything from high-end products to cheap drugstore dupes. And although we may shudder at the thought of not having a Sephora or Ulta within a ten-mile radius, sometimes the best things can be found in the most unexpected places. In our new Store Raid Series, we venture away from big department stores to find the best of beauty throughout the city. With hidden beauty gems like these, maybe we'll think about skipping Sephora after all...
Known predominantly for their Grumpy Cat plush toys and bohemian and retro-inspired fashion, Urban Outfitters' appeal extends far beyond its sartorial charm. And while it may be easy to beeline straight for the fringe-lined tops and high-wasted denim shorts, we couldn't help but notice that one section in particular has gone slightly overlooked every time someone steps foot into an UO store. The beauty section at Urban Outfitters, with everything from fragrances to face masks, has everything you would ever need from a cosmetics store.
From moisturizers to eye shadow palettes, we scouted UO's beauty section for some of our favorite skin care and makeup products. Made with natural ingredients, brands from Tonymoly to Herbivore are designed with healthy skin in mind. Even better, many of the products are made exclusive to Urban Outfitters so be sure to snag some at your local UO store before they're all gone.
Fragrances and body mists galore, Gourmand EDP will leave you smelling fresh this summer. With scents exclusive to UO, choose from an array of scents such as Pistachio Brulee, Citron Glace, Macaron Rose, Fleur Monoi, or Cote Des Palmes. For a quick pick-me-up after a day in the sun, try Herbivore's Sun Oil for a light scent of lavender and coconut.
Cute packaging and fruity-scents that double as skincare products? We're sold. Try out Tonymoly's Fruit Hand Cream for instantly soft and smooth hands or Panda's Dream Eye Stick to de-puff and revitalize tired eyes.
Fine lines and dull skin begone with Tonymoly's I'm Real Sheet Masks. From dry to acne-prone skin, there's a face mask for every unique skin concern.
Just in time for summer, create perfect pastel or neon-colored nails with UO's Classics Collection Nail Polish.
Achieve touchably soft hair with Murray's CocoSoft Coconut Oil, formulated with conditioning treatment and pomade. For a beachy, tousled look, try The Gnarly Whale Beach Waves Hair Spray, made with sea salt and coconut oil.
