Since I’ve discovered online shopping, it’s safe to say I pretty much buy everything online. I mean you can shop in your pyjamas no matter how rubbish the weather is! Could life get any better?! Shopping online also means I can take advantage of various promotional codes floating around.
FeelUnique is usually my first stop for beauty shopping. The reason being they stock a massive range of brands, from drugstore to higher end, skincare to makeup – you name it! What’s better is that they always have some kind of promotion happening where you can save 10-30% off products. They also have a ‘Unique Member’s Club’ where you can pick your favourite brand and get 10% off all year round! I find this amazing, as I go for one of my favourite high end brands and enjoy the discount.
Escentual is a must for anyone who loves their skincare. I’m a bit of a skincare junkie and fill my socks with all the French skincare I need especially when Escentual has their bi-annual French pharmacie sale on! I also find that a lot of the higher end products are a little bit cheaper at escentual, so if you’re making a pricey purchase, make sure you’ve checked here first. I always stock up on my La Roche-Posay and Bioderma from here. They also have a points system, which you can redeem as money off products; score!
ASOS beauty is on here solely because this is where I tend to get my NARS fix. I’m a #narsissist through and thorough. Since I made my first purchase last year (from ASOS, might I add!), I’ve been besotted! I love that you can get student discount on beauty products saving you that extra bit of money, and quite often through the year ASOS has up to 20% off beauty sale. If that’s not a reason to shop here, I don’t know what is! I love that they again stock a large range of brands, I’ve grabbed myself a lot of Rimmel products with the bargains from ASOS.
Living in the North-East, my closest Selfridges is in Manchester; which is a tad far to travel to stare at pretty Charlotte Tilbury makeup! So I tend to hover and add an obscene amount of makeup to my virtual basket and then just leave my browser running as I can’t part with the cash *sob*. What I love Selfridges for are the brands that you can’t get hold of anywhere else. Also, they always seem to do amazing exclusive collections that are so worth the money.
