hi, what websites do you recommend for buying makeup online, specifically ones that will ship to Australia?

Hi I definitely recommend the below list.

All ship internationally and have good customer service.

In general remember USPS is always the better option for international rates because it’s sometimes half the price of Fedex but places like nonpareilboutique and allcosmeticswholesale charge higher rates for the same weight than beautyjoint etc so be aware when buying brands like NYX that are available on multiple sites.

1. elf, Milani, NYX

2. NYX, discounted high-end brands like Nars, Too Faced and Laura Mercier

3. cheap palettes, shadows, brushes

4. Wet n Wild

5. fantastic mid-range price brushes

6. Lip paints!! I love these; the colors are so strong and they’re so affordable. Check out the eye dusts and lip pencils too. (UK shipping is slightly more expensive than from US sites in general.)

For higher-end products I often shop from:

7. limited edition and discontinued MAC products

8. the lipsticks are fantastic and shipping is free internationally if you spend above a certain amount.

9. [update thanks to sweetaholic-beauty:  Free international shipping for specialty brands such as Mario Badescu, Dr Sebagh, etc. Amazing!! I’m going to have to check this out.

These aren’t the only places that ship internationally of course. I haven’t checked out Sleek makeup, etc so I can’t say. If anyone has more to recommend reply to this and let us know which you like!

I was wondering if you've ever ordered anything from beflurt? Just wondering because I'm often wary of "discount" make up websites, a lot of times they can be a scam. It's AMAZING if it's real, though! <3 LOVE your blog, btw!

Hi there!

I’m still considering which sets I want to get, but I’ll be placing an order soon. The team has been quite responsive and professional in my communications with them, and they’ve been operating for awhile, with all the requisite site systems and communications channels set up, so I definitely don’t get any sense that there’s anything shady about them.

(I’d say you need to be more wary if the shops are on eBay, etc. A scam/counterfeit-goods site generally does not last long enough to warrant setting up active and regularly-updated Tumblr, Youtube, Facebook, etc accounts and getting legitimate encryption for their site.)

Also, I originally heard about from Emilynoel83 on Youtube who recommended the site in one of her recent videos on budget makeup, so you be the judge on that!

If you’re still not sure, I’d recommend giving them a call at (877)717-0576 [Mon - Fri, 9AM - 6PM PST]. I’m sure they’d be happy to respond to your queries!
