Shopping For Beauty Supplies Online
While I try not to look like a clown, I usually wear minimal make-up every day. For me that means eyeliner, mascara, and sometimes shadow. Occasionally lip-gloss, especially if I am outside or about in the town. Occasionally I will wear foundation and powder, but my active life as a mom, running around with children to various activities, doesn’t really warrant the full spectrum of make-up. I want my style to be easy, natural, and painless, and I want my make-up shopping to be the same.
Shopping for beauty supplies online can be challenging, but in order to save myself time, energy, and money and fit in line with my approach of easy, natural, and painless, I have found a few ways to find great make-up products and accessories online.
The Sephora online version works to uphold the reputation of a leader in cosmetics and fragrances. The original brick and mortar store was established in France in 1970, but now has a retail presence in 24 other countries, including counters within JCPenney stores in the United States.
There are great reviews of products available at their site for various cosmetics. By shopping in person at Sephora stores or at a Sephora counter at JCPenney you can test items in person to find a product that works for you, then just reorder online to save time.
You can select 3 free samples to receive and test other products when you make a purchase online. Shipping is minimal and less than the cost of gas to drive to the mall. They offer some fun and trendy products, like magnetic and crackle nail polish.
This brand is my standby for foundations and the basics, but it isn’t typically available in physical retail stores.
You can find a Mary Kay representative online in your area who will most likely be more than willing to travel to your home to bring you samples. My Mary Kay representative will mail me products at no shipping charge. I receive regular (but not annoyingly often) email advertisements and updates on products.
I can order online through my representative’s virtual store window and the items are shipped and here in almost no time.
Discount Cosmetic Dealers Online
I admit that I am a comfortable creature of habit when it comes to my cosmetics, so I don’t experiment too much with radical colors (except for lips and nails). If you’re searching for fun and inexpensive discounted cosmetics, try the following.
BuyMeBeauty.com has good prices on varieties of products, and carry some of your favorite brands. The shipping is reasonable at $4.95 or free for orders over $35 in the United States.
CosmeticBag.com has inexpensive items and low shipping costs. I imagine that if I transported back to my teenage years or my twenties I would have fun ordering from here to update my cosmetic inventory. As it is I will live vicariously through my teenage daughter and try a little of what she finds there!
