The other day my bff asked me where the best online sites to buy makeup and beauty goodness were, and naturally I started rambling off a list of my favourite haunts. I had no doubt I overwhelmed her when she said’ “maybe you can just email them to me?” which got me thinking -“Maybe I should blog about it?” So here you have it, my favourite places to shop makeup and beauty online and highlights that are worth looking at before you click, “Checkout”…
Look Fantastic is the place to buy Philip Kingsley haircare. Well known in the UK, I couldn’t find a single retailer in Canada until I found out that Look Fantastic ships it worldwide (and for free!) The Philip Kingsley Shampoo For Flaky and Itchy Scalps saved my poor head after a rough run in with a well known brands shampoo for thinning hair nearly destroyed it. PS, watch for the 20% off codes!
Feel Unique has the best rate going on my current tanning love, Fake Bake Flawless (which comes with gloves and a mitt!) I’ve shopped around plenty for this and its priced the best here, with the addition of free shipping! Another great find here is the entire range of the Tanya Burr Lipglosses and Lashes.
Sephora is one of my great loves in life, but there are a few brands that are hard to hunt down in store, which is why online shopping is so amazing. Check out Ardency Inn Eyeshadow in Rose Gold for a legitimate true rose gold amazingly pigmented shadow. Another brand that is exclusive is Kat Von D, and you all know how much I adore the Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Finally I’d suggest checking out First Aid Beauty, namely the Facial Radiance Pads which conveniently also come in a travel size, for glowing smooth skin.
When it comes to getting your hands on luxe brands Charlotte Tilbury and Wayne Goss, then BeautyLish is your bet. I’m saving my pennies for the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow and the Wayne Goss Holiday Brush. PS right now beautylish.com has $10 off the first $100 you spend!
Finally one of ultimate joys – Illamasqua Hydra Veil which can be found at Beauty Bay. This stuff makes my makeup bullet proof and my skin a happy camper. Oh and the free shipping over $20 doesn’t hurt either!
