In the realm of beauty and fashion addicts, online shopping is the best thing since shopping malls were built. It’s quick, easy, convenient, and fast. It’s even the best place to shop for your favourite makeup and skincare products because numerous sites offer free returns and shipping, discounts; and sometimes, they even carry those hard-to-find collections that everyone highly seeks out.
So if you’re just starting to dip your toes into the portal of online shopping and are slowly finding your way around numerous sites and their vast selections of products, keep reading below for the tips that will allow you to master the art of online beauty shopping.
Make sure the site is reputable
There are a lot of websites out there that sell fake or counterfeit cosmetics. So before you click that ‘Checkout’ button, make sure the website you’re buying from is reputable, with good reviews by people who have had positive experiences with the seller. Another way would be to research if your favourite beauty brands are linked to the sites as an official e-commerce partner.
For example, let’s say you want to buy LANEIGE products, our tip would be to purchase from Lazada as they are the official e-commerce partner of the Korean beauty brand! You can then shop with an ease of mind knowing that your purchase is 100% authentic.
Don’t forget to do your research
When online beauty shopping, always do your research first on the products you want to buy. Since shopping websites usually list a ton of beauty items from around the world, it’s easy to get lost within the pages of products and lose focus on the ones you actually want. Always be 100% sure with the products you add to your cart; that way, you avoid impulse buying and the extra effort of having to return products and ask for refunds.
Stay updated on brands
This shouldn’t be hard since many of us here are beauty junkies! Staying updated on a beauty brand’s newest releases and latest discounts has become a regimen in our lives. From midnight madness sales suddenly announced on Instagram, to receiving special discount codes via social media…one thing’s for sure: if you’re a beauty addict, you’ll definitely want to jump on all these exclusive promos to stretch your dollars!
