Hola Readers ,
Today on the blog I am summing my experience with various international beauty websites. Well honestly being a makeup junkie is not an easy task when you live in India, half of the brands are not available and the ones available through resellers are darn expensive.
And when it strikes to shop at international websites, the word that strikes the first in our mind is CUSTOMS , yes customs do levy hefty charges when you do your purchases internationally
Talking about E- retailers, a lot have sprung up in a very short span of time and its quite difficult to scrutinize where to start if you are buying cosmetics online. I am enclosing some sites where I personally shop to make your purchases an easy affair.
- Cult Beauty :I love this site, I have placed 10 orders in last 6 months here and I never had a bad experience with my orders. Okay one smart tip to save your money is use code ‘You15’ at the checkout and it will take you to a questionnaire, fill the details and you will be entitled to avail 15 percent off on your orders. No customs are levied here and the orders usually takes 7-10 days to reach. For the start keep your amount in the bracket of 60$-70$.
- Beauty Bay : Again I shop a lot from this one but honestly sometimes the order reach and sometimes it won’t. The order usually takes 20-25 days to reach (well I know that’s too much but I love the wide range of brands I get here). The orders that don’t make, beauty bay refunds the amount but the process is a bit time consuming.
- Feel Unique : A well trusted site to work with, the only downfall is the minimum amount is quite a much which sometimes give me double thoughts. No customs have ever levied on my orders and they do in reach in time.
Shop Smart At International Sites
- When you are shopping at cult beauty never fail to fill the questionnaire you get after code ‘You15’.
- Always try to split your billing with your friends which definitely saves on the shipping and fulfils the requirement of minimum orders.
- Try to shop at the above mentioned sites, try to save on the customs as much as you can.
- Usually the above mentioned sites goes on crazy sales on Black Friday, Christmas, New Year’s, keep an eye on the sale and try to indulge in shopping at that specific time.
- If you are skeptical on trying a new site always punch an amount in the brackets of 20$-30$ initially.
