I’ll admit it: I have a thing for buying new makeup. Okay, fine. I’m a full-fledged addict. Dilly-dallying through the aisles of Sephora and basking in the glow of the brand-new, shiny products is a serious guilty pleasure of mine. What can I say? I love the stuff. Unfortunately, it’s unrealistic to spend all my precious pennies on my favorite extravagant brands (sigh). Luckily for me (and my fellow makeup fanatics), makeup deals do exist, and they're giving my wallet a much-needed break.
Where can I find these makeup deals, you ask? Fortunately for you, we’ve done some digging and found the best websites where you can score fantastic makeup deals. These websites will offer you dupes and discounts on all your favorite beauty products. The best part? You can shop from the comfort of your own home and rack up less spending guilt. It's an all-around win.
So pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back, relax, and let the discounted shopping commence.
Glambot is great for makeup hoarders (like myself) who want to buy or sell gently used products. It’s perfect for those who want to try new trends or products, but aren’t willing to spend the full price for high-end makeup. If you want to sell your own assortment of goodies, the site will send you a free shipping label, and then review your products. If the site approves, it will offer you cash or store credit.
Even though the site analyzes each product before placing it on the site, it is important to thoroughly check the product images and information prior to purchasing it.
According to the website, “MakeUpMania is the love child of the film industry and eCommerce.” The founder, movie makeup artist Eva Marie Denst, noticed the brands she loved to use on film sets were nearly impossible to find outside of L.A. and NYC. That’s when she decided to launch a website with all the products she adored and used for extremely cheap prices. There are no discounts on this website, but the products themselves are extremely reasonably priced, and great quality.
This site seriously has it all—from your favorite trusty drugstore tools to the lusted-after, high-end makeup brands. Plus, the discounts are definitely noteworthy.
Gilt is the place to go for impressive brands at a discounted price. While it requires a quick sign up, making an account isn't a hassle especially if you're looking for discounted brands that won't leave you with the post-shopping blues. This site has it all— from fancy face masks to 11 piece brush sets, you don't have to worry about shilling out the cash. Like the bamboo brush set above, (I mean, where else are you going to find a professional $60 brush set for $23?!) the site is packed with great deals. Excuse me while I go buy everything.
