No bag shlepping required!

Beauty products, cosmetics, skincare, haircare … they are some of the easiest products you could purchase online. Back in 2010 I wrote this post about online beauty stores that ship internationally. Today I am telling you about my Top 10 online beauty stores that I think you should all get to know.

Note: These aren’t ranked in any particular order. I love them all equally.

Feel Unique

Country Of Origin: UK

Three words ….. FREE. INTERNATIONAL. SHIPPING. Yes, you heard correctly. Anywhere in the world, standard shipping is free! They also have a pretty nifty site, stocking brands like Elemis, Phillip Kingsley and Jemma Kidd Make Up School. You can also view the products in a choice of global currencies.

Sephora

Country Of Origin: USA

Of course Sephora is going to get a mention of in my top online beauty stores. They have sites for many international locations, including Australia, but the product information on the US website and quality of images are perfect for picking out items you want to try, even if you can’t purchase directly from them. They also have other important website features like a blog, forums and video content.

PM Studio

Country Of Origin: Australia

PM Studio is a treasure trove for all the amazing brands the world has to offer, and that we thought weren’t available in Australia. The big kahuna of course is Make Up For Ever, a brand I love to bits and can’t get enough of. Other brands you will find on their site include Face Atelier, It Cosmetics, Paula Dorf and GOSH. At the moment they only ship within Australia and New Zealand, but that just makes us little stranded folk feel so much more included.

Beauty Bridge

Country Of Origin: USA

Another one of my favourite USA stores but this time they ship internationally! Yes, international beauty addicts rejoice. They stock some of my favourite brands that I usually lust over on Sephora, such as Peter Thomas Roth, Fusion Beauty and the Balm … plus a whole lot more. An added bonus is that they offer remarkably low flat rate shipping costs.

Cult Beauty

Country Of Origin: UK

The premise behind this beauty store is that they only stock the most popular, most sought after brands. They ship internationally and stock brands from all over the world. You will find Essie, BECCA, Korres and Dr Brandt in the mix. Definitely get to know this cult site if you haven’t seen it before.

Zuneta

Country Of Origin: UK

Zuneta specialise in high-end, specialty and hard to find beauty brands and offer international shipping. Skincare is a big field for them, stocking brands such as Caudalíe, Nude Skincare and Malin + Goetz. In cosmetics they have exclusive brands like Edward Bess and Hourglass.

Harrods

Country Of Origin: UK

Britain’s greatest department store is also one of the greatest online beauty stores.  They stock brands from all over the world, top shelf to wallet friendly, and everything in between. But what many don’t realise is that Harrods do ship internationally and offer amazing prices. Bookmark Harrods if you are looking for Tom Ford Beauty, YSL, Burberry Beauty, La Prairie, La Mer … the list goes on.

Beauty Bay

Country Of Origin: USA

This store is one of my favourites for a highly important reason …. they stock Urban Decay and ship globally. Music to a stranded-Aussie-beauty-addict’s ears. Their site is good looking, easy to navigate and they have a feature at the top of their site that allows you to view items in the currency of your choice. Aside from Urban Decay, they also stock almost every brand on this planet, including other impossible to locate brands such as Cargo.

Kiss And Makeup

Country Of Origin: USA

If you like NARS, Trish McEvoy, Fresh and Frederic Fekkai, than you will want to bookmark this online store. They ship internationally for a minimal flat rate postage fee, and if you live in the USA or Canada than you score free postage.

Adore Beauty

Country Of Origin: Australia

Aside from PM Studio (listed above), Adore Beauty is pretty much where I do all my Aussie online shopping. They stock ‘essential’ brands such as OPI, Benefit Cosmetics and Dermalogica. They also stock some of the greatest Australian brands we have ever produced. Plus, international shipping is an option here so it is perfect for all the non-Australians to give our products a try.

Cherry Culture

Country Of Origin: USA

Depending which country you live in, and where in that country, you could see Cherry Culture as the store that stocks the hard to find drugstore brands. ie. Me, an Australian. They have Milani, LA Girl, LA Colors, NYX, Juice Beauty and Jordana, among others. They offer international shipping and I swear they are ALWAYS having a sale on something, even though the prices are crazy cheap.
