Etude House has a large selection of good quality makeup. What is most remarkable about this brand is their packaging. With lipstick bottles that look like sodas and eyeshadow cases that look like chocolate bars, in addition to being good the cosmetics you buy will be cute. Not to mention, the foundations and cancelers are very affordable and mostly full coverage. What is probably the best to buy here are individual eyeshadows, lip stains, and foundations.

Ainz and Tulpe is very similar to that of Ulta in the United States. In it, you can find some great deals and drugstore brands, while also being able to find some more high-end products. The specific store pictured has such a large selection that beauty and skincare products make up almost two entire floors. With a lot of options to choose from, everyone can find something they like here!

4. Matsumoto Kiyoshi

Matsumoto Kiyoshi is the definition of a drugstore brand. Found almost everywhere in Tokyo, it's hard to go somewhere where you won't find one of these stores. Like your local CVS or Walgreens, Matsumoto Kiyoshi stocks affordable makeup and skincare. It is especially good if you have run out of (or forgotten) something from your makeup bag at home.

5. Botanist Tokyo

A little different from the rest, Botanist Tokyo is mostly a hair care store! Botanist Tokyo stocks shampoos, conditioners, hair oils, and more. However, they also stock skincare items like body and facial scrubs, in addition to lotions and perfumes. They do not stock cosmetic items.

Price Range: $$$

6. Sony Plaza

Sony Plaza stocks items similar to that of Ainz and Tulpe. However, Sony Plaza also stocks many American brands like Revlon and Loreal. If you've been to Ainz and Tulp, it wouldn't be worth it to go to Sony Plaza-especially since they stock fewer items.

Price Range: $$

7. CosmeKitchen

Famous for being an organic brand, CosmeKitchen stocks environment-friendly makeup, skincare, and hair products. Though moderately priced, there are not a lot of choices or variety in product since it is a relatively small store.

Price Range: $$

8. The Body Shop

Though named the Body Shop, this store certainly has more than just body lotion and fragrance.

In addition, the Body Shop has very helpful workers ready to answer any questions you may have about their products.

Price Range: $$

10. SkinGarden

Possibly the most all-encompassing makeup store in all of Tokyo, SkinGarden stocks a huge amount of product from many different brands. Innisfree, StyleNanda, and Etude House cosmetics are all sold here, in addition to Mishha, Skinfood, and Nature Republic. To say it is an impressive store is an understatement. It's the perfect place to find all of your skincare and cosmetics needs, without having to worry about racking up a huge price when checking out.
