My list of reputable sites and shops where you can buy cheap makeup. Grab yourself an absolute makeup bargain with the help of this list-
We all love a good bargain and some people can’t afford anything but a bargain. In this day and age money is tighter, you have to be cunning with your spending choices. There are definitely ways to save a few pounds and still get decent makeup products. I’ve done a bit of research and found several places where you can get your makeup at a fraction of its full price.
Here is my list of shops and sites that’ll sort you out with some nice cheap makeup. I haven’t included eBay, I’m sure there is some genuine makeup on there but you can never be sure (here’s my post on Fake eBay knockoff makeup)-
Where To Buy Cheap Makeup-Asos Outlet
You’re bound to be aware of Asos. It’s a huge lady’s fashion website. You can spend days scrolling through pictures of blouses. You might not know that Asos also has an outlet and does makeup. There is an impressive selection of cut price brand name makeup. Sometimes with sale makeup, the selection is comprised purely of odd colours, but Asos outlet has a great selection. Here is some of the makeup you can find there at the moment-
- OhK Korean makeup
- There is loads of Models Own
- Nyx brush kit and palette
- Anna Sui
- Bliss Skincare kit
- The Balm
Not bad eh? Some of the reductions are up to 70% and you can be sure that there are no fakes. The returns policy is that they will refund any Beauty item as long as it hasn’t been opened.
Where To Get Cheap Makeup-Depop
Depop is a bit like eBay crossed with Instagram. You have a personal profile and you can follow other people. You can put things up for sale and communicate with potential buyers in the comments. I’ve noticed other beauty bloggers selling makeup on there. I had been wondering what beauty bloggers do with all the makeup they buy/receive. They can’t all keep it in a massive pile that threatens the safety of children, like I do.
You can find loads on there- makeup that was used once because it was the wrong colour. Eyeshadow palettes that have had one swatch taken out of them. I found an unused Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for £20 (it’s normally £38).The seller can name their price and you put in a bid in the comments under the ad. I bought a Mac x9 palette off Depop for hardly any pounds, it was perfectly fine and dandy and hardly touched.
Depop is a similar deal to eBay, but there seems to be a lot more genuine sellers on there. It’s fun to use, you could waste hours. You pay through PayPal and they can mediate if there are any disputes. You can definitely grab yourself a juicy bargain on Depop, and most lilwaste several hours snooping around while you’re doing it.
Where To Buy Cheap Makeup-TKMaxx
Another excellent location for wasting hours bargain hunting. They do makeup as well as handbags, shoes and clothes. I quite often find the makeup section of the shop in disarray but I have managed to grab a Real Techniques brush set there in the past.
A ganders at their online shop today revealed Clinique foundation, Mac Eyeshadow, Shisheido Eye Colour, Makeup Forever Lipgloss among other things.
Where To Buy Cheap Makeup-Poundworld
I’m working on another post about Poundworld makeup so I’ll give you the full story in a few days. The makeup you’ll find in Poundworld is from the Miss Beauty London range. It’s made by the same company that do W7 and Technic. I have tried a few things from Poundworld’s Miss Beauty London range and I have to say it’s surprisingly good considering it’s just £1 a piece. Here is my review of Miss Beauty Poundworld
Where To Get Cheap Makeup- Freedom Makeup*
Freedom makeup is pitched as professional standard makeup. The prices are much lower than you would expect to pay for professional quality products. Freedom does kits containing a collection of basic makeup items- primer, fixer, palettes, you get 7 items for £18. They do boxes of lipsticks- 5 for £5. Freedom’s Eyeshadow palettes are really reasonably priced, starting at £4. The quality is good, the packaging is basic and the prices are super low.
Where To Buy Cheap Makeup-Beauty Pie
I have only read about Beauty Pie, I haven’t tried it. Here’s the blurb-
OUR EVERYDAY MISSION is to go out and source the world’s best beauty products from a global base of suppliers, and to bring them to our members at their transparent FACTORY COSTS.
The prices appear to be very tempting- foundation for £4.99, mascara for £1.93. You have to pay £10 a month and shipping and handling fees (which amount to about £5 as far as I can gather, it’s a bit complicated). So Beauty Pie might not be extremely cheap, but I’ve included it because I’ve heard the makeup is really good and it’s an interesting idea.
There are also several websites that sell discounted brand name makeup. You’ll find discontinued lines of big brand makeup, so these websites could be useful if your favourite product isn’t available anymore. Check out Cosmetics Fairy, Direct Cosmetics, Strawberry, Fragrance Direct.
