Top 7 Korean Beauty/Cosmetics Stores in Houston, TX
7. Vina Shop
11322 Bellaire Blvd #111, Houston, TX 77072
Brands they carry: Tony Moly, Cledbel, IPKN, Magis Lene, Lioele.
This is a pretty well-rounded K-Beauty store when it comes to having all sorts of beauty items under the sun. Aside from skincare and cosmetics, they do also sell supplements and vitamins and hair care products.
6. Vita Dep (located inside Hong Kong City Mall)
11209 Bellaire Blvd Ste C-8, Houston, TX 77072
Brands they carry: O HUI, The History of Whoo, ISA KNOX, Sooryehan.
This store carries more of high-end, luxury Korean beauty items. Like Vina Shop, they also carry supplements and vitamins. I come here for the deals they have on gift sets! You get more bang for your buck buying gift sets/deluxe sets rather than buying single items. It's also a good place to buy gifts because of the various sets they have.
5. Nature Collection (located inside 99 Ranch Market)
1005 Blalock Rd, Houston, TX 77055
Brands they carry: Skin79, O HUI, The History of Whoo, Su:m 37, Missha.
I absolutely love this store because of the elderly woman who runs it. She's the sweetest fashionista I've ever seen. I haven't gone there in awhile, so I hope she's still there!
Other than her, this place has a good collection of mid-range to high-end Korean beauty. I used to come here to buy a lot of O HUI products (before I started shopping online more), now my mom comes here to buy lots of her products in bulk. This store is also really generous with samples.
4. Aritaum (located inside both H-Mart)
1302 Blalock Road. Houston, TX 77055 &
9896 Bellaire Boulevard Suite M, Houston, TX 77036
Brands they carry: IOPE, Laneige, Sulwhasoo, Hanyul, Mamonde.
Its also located next to a K-Pop store! This is where I come to get my Sulwhasoo fix; they carry the entire line of Sulwhasoo and more. I come here to get lots of Sulwhasoo face masks and tons of samples. Aritaum also carries a lot of various cosmetics such as BB creams, nail polish, and assorted lipsticks and powders.
3. Tony Moly
EDIT: The store has moved to – 10800 Bellaire Blvd Ste. D, Houston, TX 77072
This is one of my favorite stores on this list. Ranging from extremely cute packaging to sheet masks galore, Tony Moly is notorious for the most adorable packaging, and they're also affordable. I have only been here once to check it out, (it's really far away from me) but it's so cute and they carry all Tony Moly items!
11322 Bellaire Blvd #106, Houston, TX 77072
I genuinely love this store. You would not believe how excited I was when I found out this store opened. My obsession with Korean beauty only got worse (in a good way of course). I come here every 2-3 months to pick up sheet masks, face wash, and overall check out what's new. They also do tons of promo sales with sheet masks and deals during holidays.
12168 Bellaire Blvd #178, Houston, TX 77072
Brands they carry: Banila Co., Benton, Innisfree, CosRx, Holika Holika, Dr. Jart+, Etude House, Goodal, Missha, Nature Republic, Neogen, SkinFood, and so much MORE.
I saved the best for last. This may be the best Korean beauty store that I've found in Houston. They carry such a huge variety of k-beauty items and they're also up to date with new items! This store is also really generous with samples; I've found some great items just from trying their samples. They also have great sheet mask deals. Last time I visited, they had a big bucket of $1 masks and a deal of buying 5 masks and receiving another one for free.
