Hey BD beauties!
Todays post is for those who are new to makeup shopping online and who are clueless about which sites ships where! To buy makeup online its vital to understand various things for your safety, a few pointers could be the payment options and their shipping options. Always try your best to shop via websites that give you the option to pay through PayPal. And as for shipping, use shipping methods that give you a reliable tracking number.
So getting back to the topic, I'm a crazy online shopping freak so here I’m with a list to help you guys with shopping online for makeup! These websites carry tons of amazing brands such as Maybelline, nyx cosmetics, la girl cosmetics, milani, bourjois and much more! Some even provide free worldwide shipping, which is always a bonus!
Just a quick shout out to all my fellow srilankan readers, all the websites mentioned ship to srilanka ;)
For Drugstore Makeup Brands:
1. Beauty Joint : https://beautyjoint.com/
This has been my most loved makeup store online because of their reasonable shipping rates and the amazing array of brands that they carry at retail prices! They sell brands such as NYX cosmetics, Milani, Revlon, Maybelline, la girl cosmetics, mehron, limecrime just to name a few. The plus is that they do accept paypal payments and is extremely safe to use!
2. Ikatehouse: http://www.ikatehouse.com/
Another amazing website that sells affordable drugstore brands! They are quite similar to beautyjoint but they sell brands that are slightly cheaper such as la girl, elf cosmetics, nyx, nicka k, la colors to name a few. They have a ton of items in their list and your cart will be filled in no time for very little money. In addition to makeup, they also carry accessories such as jewelry and hair accessories.
3. MUA (Makeup Academy): http://www.muastore.co.uk/
This is a brand by itself, which is quite popular in the UK. The brand is sold in UK drugstores such as Superdrug and is quite similar to the brand elf cosmetics in USA. They makeup is great quality and is sold for as low as 1 pound. The shipping rates are very reasonable as well!
4. BH Cosmetics: http://www.bhcosmetics.com/
Another brand that is focused on releasing tons of products very often and is quite ahead in their game. Many of us have seen the 120 palettes, 88 palettes and so on in various places such as eBay and other Chinese websites. But they really have their game high with providing palettes at amazing prices and unbeatable quality. Their products can be easily compared to high-end makeup without doubt. Also a thing to note is that Bh cosmetic often have sales on their products so make sure you sign up to their emails to keep updated.
5. Coastal scents: http://www.coastalscents.com/
This is another brand similar to that of bh cosmetics but not as popular. They still do have good quality palettes and ship worldwide! Do checkout their glitters they are one of my favorites!
6. EBay: http://www.ebay.com/
EBay is a great place to find drugstore makeup and prices slightly less than the retail values! This happens when the products are discontinued or do not sell. However such products are not expired ones and are just as good for cheaper prices. You can also find almost all makeup products you need and get them shipped to your country.
For high end makeup
1. Feel unique: http://www.feelunique.com/
This is the place to go for high-end brands such as Clinique, Dior, Lancôme, Elizabeth Arden, estee’ lauder and so on! They ship worldwide and the best thing is that they ship for free if you buy over 10 pounds isn’t that amazing?
2. Anastasia Beverly hills: http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/
My crazy obsession with Anastasia’s products is never ending. I absolutely love their single eye shadows. One of the best I have used and is part of my professional kit! Anastasia ships worldwide and has reliable shipping methods to go with it. They often come out with new products and some of them such as the eyshadows, contour palettes and dipbrow pomades are worth checking out!
3. Asos: http://www.asos.com/women/beauty/
Asos isn’t a makeup/ beauty store primarily but are well known for their fashion forward clothing. However, asos does carry a good range of high end as well as drugstore brands on their website. And a point to note is that they have free worldwide shipping options and a very well trained customer service staff. They carry brand such as NARS, benefit cosmetics, bourjois, rimmel and more!
