When in comes to makeup shopping I do enjoy looking on the high street in places such as Boots & Superdrug however in the back of my mind I always know which products & brands I will be able to find much cheaper online.
So I thought I would share with you my favourite websites that I know I can rely on and products that I will always be able to find online with free P&P and a good discount.
Just to give you an example of how much you can save I took all the products above and worked out if you purchased then all online instead of in Boots you would save a huge £28!
Amazon is now much more than a website to purchase books and dvds from, it sells everything you can imagine and is particularly good for cosmetics at a discount that are direct from the brand itself and shipped through Amazon - so a safer way to shop. I actually love Amazon as much as I love eBay now as you can find such bargain and I even think it's easier to browse.
Oh, how I love Fragrance Direct! For the past two years I have been placing quite frequent orders and have yet to be disappointed in the products I have picked. This really is the ultimate discount website with Essie, OPI and Sally Hansen nail polishes and makeup brands such as Bourjois, Revlon, Rimel L'Oreal etc. You can save so much with this website and I often spend £15-30 and receive so much compared to if I shoped in Superdrug or Boots and spent the same.
Current bargains - OPI Nail Polishes £3.99 here, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure £1.49 here, Essie Nail Polishes £1.99 here (all updated often). Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick £1.99 here, Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss £1.99 here, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation £4.50 here.
Buying makeup from eBay can be a tricky thing as there are so many counterfeit products. So I would suggest to stay away from all Benefit and MAC products and look at what else the seller is selling (to spot any products you haven't seen that specific brand do before - a warning sign the seller is selling fake products). However you generally don't need to worry at all if the products are from high street brands such as Rimmel, L'Oreal, Maybeline, Revlon etc. But it you want to be totally sure then go for eBay sellers that also have makeup websites such as Direct Cosmetics.
Current bargains - Maybelline Color Tattoo in Eternal Gold £3.50 here Metallic Pomegrante £3.84 here (soooo want this shade for Autumn!), Essie Mini Duo £3.64 here, Makeup Blender Sponge 99p here, Bourjois Little Pot Eyeshadows £2.45 here.
Last but not least a trusty website that you can pick up some good bargain from especially hair care products (I've purchased a few Tigi shampoos and a Macadamia Mask for such low prices in the past). Also this has the added benefit of free delivery. I don't seem to use this website as often now as I prefer Fragrance Direct. However when re-purchasing hair products this is always my first call. Also they are good for gift sets.
Current bargains - Model Co Smokey Eyes Set £8.95 here, L'Oreal Glam Shine Fresh Lip Gloss £4.50 here, Orofluido Beauty Elixir Hair Oil £13.65 here.
Hopefully some of you have found this helpful if you don't shop online that often.
Will be posting up a huge Fragrance Direct haul very soon - I went a bit crazy!
