Online shopping might be one of my favourite activities ever. I might even prefer it over actual shopping because you can do it in the comfort of your own home, wearing your pyjama’s and watching Netflix in the mean time. If that’s not the ideal situation, I don’t know what is. Because I’m such an online shopper I do have a couple of favourite stores were I shop most often. Because I’ve been loving online shopping even more lately, and also because it’s vacation and it’s the perfect thing to do if you’ve got a little spare time on your hands, I though I might share that list. So, if you’re interested in finding out what my favourite online beauty stores are and where I get my favourite brands, make sure you continue reading!
Ici Paris XL
Ici Paris is a Dutch of Belgium store (don’t know for sure) that’s specialised in perfume and beauty. The actual store is one of the most horrible places to be in my opinion because most of the employees there aren’t the friendliest (even though they do have some really nice people there, don’t get me wrong), but the online store is amazing. The reason why it’s amazing is because they always have the greatest deals going on and they have a lot of coupon codes, so you can get your favourite luxury makeup for a lot less.
At Ici Paris I like to buy brands such as Chanel and Dior because of these crazy discounts. Once I actually managed to get a Dior foundation for just €10! Isn’t that crazy?!
One of my other classics is Lookfantastic. I’ve shopped there a million times already and I just love it. Just like Ici Paris they have a lot of coupon codes, especially if you’re subscribed to the news letter. Aside from that they also have a ton of amazing brands that you just can’t anywhere or not as affordable as they are there.
My favourite brands to shop on Lookfantastic are (mid-)budget brands like Maybelline, Rimmel and Bourjois because those brands are a lot more affordable on Lookfantastic than they are in store. When it comes to higher end brands I like to shop Benefit there because they offer the same thing as they do in stores here in the Netherlands for way less and brands like NARS.
Feelunique is also just amazing. I love Feelunique for many reasons. One of those reasons being that I got my second and third Urban Decay Naked Palette off of it back when they were all the rage. But I also love Feelunique because they stock the collections of famous youtubers like Zoella, Fleur The Force and Tanya Burr, and I really love all three of them so that’s pretty cool.
I also really appreciate Feelunique because they stock lighter shades of foundations I really want like the Dior serumy foundation (I can’t remember what it’s called). The lightest shade isn’t available in the Netherlands, but it is on Feelunique!
Cultbeauty is a webshop I only recently discovered. I have known about it for a while, but ever since I started ordering there I’ve really fallen in love with it. The first reason why I love it is because their shipping is incredibly quick. Normally shipping from the UK to the Netherlands takes about a little over a week, but Cultbeauty does it in only a couple of days.
Second of all they just stock the most amazing brands like Jouer, which I’ve been falling in love with recently, but also Anastasia Beverly Hills which is way more affordable on Cultbeauty than at stores such as Douglas.
My last favourite store is one I’ve been obsessed with for way too long. It’s the UK version of QVC. It’s just the best place on earth. First of all because they stock Tarte and also IT Cosmetics and lots of other brands. But that’s not the only reason why QVC is that amazing. It’s also because of their absolutely incredible deals. I mean their Today Special Value sets are to die for. I always fall for them and I’ve never regretted getting even one of them. I’m absolutely obsessed with QVC!
And I think that sums up my list of my absolute favourite online beauty stores. I hope this list might be helpful to you if you’re on the hunt for a specific brand that you haven’t been able to find so far. Thank you so much for reading today’s post and be sure to let me know which beauty webshops are your absolute favourites! I’m always open to discovering new stores!
