If you are a cosmetic lover like many other girls and guys in Ireland, i’m sure you are already well aware of the hefty price tag and regular inaccessibility we have to many of the cheapest and often best makeup and beauty brands on the market. Maybe the problem is you just don’t know where to look. Thats where I come in to tell you FOUR of the BEST online websites to buy these attainable goodies.
Cherry Culture is your one stop shop for high quality drugstore products such as ARDELL, Jordana Cosmetics, MILANI Cosmetics, China Glaze and NYX Cosmetics. Yes, you could purchase these brands from their own websites but everything on Cherry Culture is under the one ‘roof’ making your shopping experience ‘easy breezy cover girl’ as Tyra Banks says, not to mention cheaper 😉 There is always a sale happening on this website. Shipping starts at €8.78 taking between 8-17 days for delivery. It’s a steal!
1. NYX Single Eyeshadows– €3.65
2. NYX Round Lipsticks– €2.55
3. Jordana Powder Blush– €1.09
4. Milani Baked Bronzer– €6.57
Joy017 is a GREAT shop if you love NYX Cosmetics. They have just about every product from the brand and it is at really affordable prices. Real Techniques is another popular brand that is sold for a fraction of the price in comparison to prices in Irish outlets. Joy017 has a large range of EcoTools products. This eBay shop is the best if you want to buy certain products such as lipsticks or brushes in bulk as the deals are great. Don’t feel as if you are being defrauded by the cheap prices, all products ARE GENUINE and once you get to the checkout you will notice a huge shipping reduction depending on how much you purchase. Shipping is fast and the owner is a pleasure to deal with. The only thing is that Joy017 DOES NOT ship to Germany.
1. EcoTools CUSTOM COVERAGE BUFFING BRUSH– €4.95
2. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils– €6.41 for three
3. Real Techniques Brush Kits– €13.05 for one set
UPDATED SPECIAL OFFER— Shipping discounts available based on the weight of package. If your purchase is more than ($40.00) €29 with shipping you will get ONE of the NYX product as a free gift.
Beauty Joint is the best website if you are looking for a variety of good quality and cheap makeup and beauty products. This website stocks makeup, nails, body, hair, accessories and sunglasses. SUGARPILL, Revlon, Lime Crime, KleanColor, E.L.F Cosmetics, Rimmel London, Wet N Wild Cosmetics, BH Cosmetics, Milani Cosmetics, NYX Cosmetics, Sally Hansen are just some of the products they stock. I know that some of the brands I mentioned you can buy in Ireland but prices on Beauty Joint are much more student friendly to your wallet. (Just in case you didn’t know, Wet N Wild Cosmetics recently came to Ireland in January. You can find them in Dunnes Stores across Ireland. I REALLY recommend trying them)
Shipping costs from Beauty Joint can cost from €10 upwards, but every new customer is entitled to a $5 or €3.65 discount. Shipping can take around two weeks so i’d recommend placing a somewhat large order to gain maximum value for your buck. As you can see below, products range from very cheap to expensive, which gives you a choice just incase you are in the market for an expensive lippy.
1. E.L.F Studio Blush– €2.91
2. LIME CRIME Eyeshadow Helper (Primer)– €14.59
3. E.L.F Studio High Definition Powder– €5.83
4. Red Cherry False Eyelashes– €1.64
5. E.L.F Studio Kabuki Face Brush– €5.83
6. Lime Crime Lipstick– €13.13
KIKO is one of my all time favourite affordable makeup brands. Since its launch in 2011 I have been an avid supporter of this brand, they literally have no product I dislike, well I would strongly advice not purchasing their brushes as I feel they aren’t of a good quality. I suggest investing in decent high quality brushes that will last you years! Their lipsticks, face compacts and nail polishes are my favourite and nothing tops the €17 mark. Unfortunately they currently don’t have an actual shop in Ireland but I strongly suggest they do in the near future as there is a thriving market to welcome their arrival. I can tell you though that KIKO do ship to Ireland. For orders under €49 it costs €7.90 and for orders over €49 it costs €3. Not bad at all!
1. Mat Base Corrector Primer– €8.90
2. BB Glow Compact Foundation– €11.90
3. Glow Touch Lips & Cheeks– €6.90
4. Eyebrow Designer– €7.20
5. Smart Lipstick– €2.50
