Ron Robinson sets the trends. Remember when Hard Candy hit it big? That was Ron. Child Perfume? His discovery. Ron owns Apothia, a beauty boutique with two locations: a stand-alone store in L.A.'s Brentwood area and a store-within-a-store at the uber-hip Los Angeles shopping mecca Fred Segal on Melrose Ave. This is one-stop shopping for fashionistas and those "in-the-know."

Like Beautyhabit, this superstore features all the cult faves and hard-to-find boutique brands.
Free shipping on $75 orders, free samples and free gift wrapping.
