This blog post is completely inspired by one of my favourite bloggers Kayleigh. She recently posted some of her most loved beauty sites for a cheeky shopping spree which got me thinking of all the websites I love for window shopping or a little splurge. We've definitely got a few in common, with a few little extras chucked in for good measure!
BOOTS and SUPERDRUG - Doesn't everyone love Boots and Superdrug? The bonus to online shopping with either is you can keep a track of your points, easily scout out the best offers and find newly released products that might not be available in store. The Superdrug website could use an update to make it more user friendly, but if you're willing to hunt through the slightly unorganised online stock you'll find everything you need.
SPACENK - What Beauty Blogger doesn't like SpaceNK? It reguarly offers online product exclusives, such as the recent popular palettes from Nars and Hourglass, as well as a beautiful selection of products. The brand list alone will make you drool and they have a points system too!
FEELUNIQUE - This is a favourite of mine because it carries a nice selection of high end and high street products, it's easy to browse and offers free delivery. TheBalm are a great brand to check out and if you're interested they even have the Kardashian beauty line!
BEAUTYBAY - Another site that offers free delivery, doesn't that just make shopping that little bit sweeter and more guilt free? You'll find some amazing brands on here, from Mario Badescu to Too Faced, CoverFX and First Aid Beauty - all which make me squeal with excitement and they offer competitive prices.
LOVEMAKEUP - I adore this website. It offers some unique brands, including Kryolan, RCMA, Sugarpill, Zoeva - even Wayne Goss's newly released brush collection. I've found some brilliant products through this site!
CULTBEAUTY - I really like the 'Top 10' section on the Cult Beauty site where you can see popular Bloggers or Beauty experts share their favourite bits and pieces. If you're looking for luxury, slightly hard to find brands such as Anastasia, Aesop, Dr. Lipp, Face Stockholm and RMS Beauty, you're in the right place.
FRAGRANCEDIRECT - This is a great site for anyone looking for a beauty bargain, I blogged a while ago about the Dainty Doll products I found for a fraction of the retail price on there, plus they also stock lots of other popular brands - all for discount prices!
DEBENHAMS - I love that you can now collect and spend your points online. Debenhams usually have some kind of beauty offer on, either being 10% off or extra beauty points and they stock all the big beauty brands, plus beauty card holders get free delivery!
TIPS FOR ONLINE BEAUTY SHOPPING :
- Have a browse online to make sure you can't get it cheaper elsewhere or if there's any available discount codes.
- I always search for product reviews if I'm unfamiliar with a brand or product. To easily find a Blogger based review just type ' product name BLOGSPOT ' in to googles search bar.
- Search on google for swatches of shades to get an idea of the true colour of the product, if I'm buying foundation I try to find Bloggers with a similar skin tone to mine and see what shades they use.
So there we have all of my favourite places to visit if I'm feeling like a beauty splurge or just a little browse. Do you have any new beauty spots I can add to my list of bookmarked pages? Also don't forget to check out Kayleigh from Couture Girl for her list of beauty sites not to be missed!
