Guide To: Online Beauty Shopping

First things first, you absolutely need to create an account on E-bates if you don’t already have one.
E-bates is a website that pays members cash back every time they shop online (any store, not just beauty). By logging onto E-bates first then searching for the store you want to shop at you activate cash back, and now even better E-bates has an extension that can be added to your browser so any online store you go to cash back will already be activated. It’s so easy. There is no reason you shouldn’t sign up. Plus they actually send you CHECKS in the mail, no gift cards.
For great beauty deals I check Hautelook pretty much everyday! They always have really great discounts on makeup, skincare, hair care and tools, and nail polish. It’s one of my go-to websites/apps.
Another great website for beauty shopping that not a lot of people are talking about is LoxaBeauty, they carry so many brands all in one place, but that isn’t the cool thing… LoxaBeauty is a site that really supports stylists. So if you have a question about a product for your skin type, or what kind of hairspray to use in a humid climate you can ask a stylist, and they get commission based on your purchases. I think it’s just the coolest site! (Really great for hair products).
If you are on the hunt for foundation and don’t know what color to pick, before shopping online I suggest you go to your Sephora and they will give you a Color IQ test that literally takes 5 minutes. Once the test is complete you will be given an IQ number, that number is what you will use anytime you shop online to pull up your perfect foundation shade. Doing this will always assure that your face and neck match. (They also do Skincare IQ Test as well that will determine your problem areas and the solution to them)… technology nowadays is just crazy cool! Sample selection at check out also makes Sephora a cool place to shop!
Last but certainly not least is the Ulta App. Of course I love shopping on their website too, but they just redid the app and it is so good, and so easy to use. You can see how many rewards points you have, search any product in their inventory and read reviews, get your $3.50 off coupon right in the app (I don’t have the excuse of “Oh I didn’t know I was coming here today, do you have a coupon?), and scan items with the barcode feature taking you straight to the product for more info and review. It’s a really well done app.
So these are the websites and tools I use for Online Beauty Shopping. I know every beauty product can’t be bought online, but I hope these tips can help you next time you are wanting to buy some beauty goodies from the comfort of your own home. Shopping online is also really great if you already know you love the product, you can just repurchase it online while wearing your favorite jammies, plus remember you can save money and get cash back at almost every store. I hope this post was helpful to you!
Do you shop online for beauty products, or do you have to try them on before purchasing?
