Reader Neophyte Julia left a comment on a previous post about fake cosmetics. She wanted to know where other than Ebay can you get authentic affordable makeup:-
Can anyone recommend trustworthy eBay cosmetic vendors? I’ve visited some reputable online sellers, but the prices and/or shipping fees can be discouraging- especially when I’ve never tried them before!
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions for someone living in the states? What’s my best bet for affordable, genuine, unexpired makeup?
Personally, I shop online primarily on StrawberryNET.com. I’ve never had problems with them and they have a decent stock of both Western and Asian cosmetics. For Asian cosmetics, I’ve also used adambeauty.com and ichibankao.com in my time. I find that Asian cosmetics online aren’t that cheap for us here in Malaysia (we can actually get them cheaper at counters here) but its affordable for the rest of the world and these sites are relatively reliable. It is a boon in fact, if you are in a country where Asian cosmetics are rare.
I don’t shop on ebay anymore so I’m afraid I’m of no help recommending reputable ebay sellers. If you are looking for reviews on Asian cosmetics, look on LotusPalace. Kathi is a fountain of information when it comes to Asian cosmetics and where to buy them. She also highlights her favourite ebay sellers now and then.
Now, over to you.
Where online do you get affordable, genuine, unexpired makeup? Do you have trusted ebay sellers or ebay stores to recommend?
