Where I shop online... + Lipstick Rules Giveaway!

I've always loved shopping online, I just find it so convenient and you really do find the most amazing deals! So I decided to do a post on the places that I shop online regularly and the places that I KNOW for sure has great customer service and products :) If anyone has anymore great websites to recommend just leave a comment! I would love to know! :)
  1. Strawberrynet.com - My total favourite places to shop online! It has the widest range of higher end make up, skincare, hair care and fragrances I've ever seen online. The best thing is, they have FREE SHIPPING no matter where you are and they also have an amazing loyalty program where the more products you buy, the more discounts you'll get. After you buy 20 products, you'll start receiving 10% discount on your purchases and if you buy 3 or more products, you'll get an extra 5% off! I have never had a problem with strawberrynet and completely recommend this online store. They ship super quick too! I usually get my items within a few working days :) (I am in Australia if anyone doesn't know :))
  2. Sasa.com - I'm sure everyone knows this place by now! This is the only place online where I can get My Beauty Diary sheet masks and I just love all the Asian products that is not available in Australia that I can get on this website! Sasa is inexpensive and really pleasant to deal with and the shipping costs are awesome too! If you spend over US$75 they will give you free shipping, no matter where you are! :) Sasa has make up, skincare, haircare, fragrances and suncare, all of them I believe are reasonably priced!
  3. Allcosmeticswholesale.com - This is where my MAC porn is... this place is UNBELIEVABLE! I can not believe that this site isn't that famous! They have an amazing range of make up from Urban Decay, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, MAC and much much more! The prices are completely unbeatable and even though some of the products do come unboxed, and it will specify so on the page, the products are perfectly brand new and unused. This isn't the cheapest as for shipping charges but that's cause I'm on the other side of the world :P If you were in America I think the shipping costs wouldn't be so bad, but despite the shipping costs, I will definitely repurchase from this site without a doubt!
  4. Smartpoppy.com.au - This is for all my Australian ladies, they sell MAC, NARS, Lancome and other brands at a lower price. It's not the cheapest I've found online but they were reliable and they did send the products so I have to mention them on my list :)
  5. Cherryculture.com - LOVE LOVE LOVE this place for NYX. One of the cheapest places online for NYX products that I've come across and shipping costs are very reasonable and products are always correct. I will have to complain about the swatches that they have on the site for NYX products though, especially the round lipsticks, I don't find them very helpful, but other than that, great all round website!
  6. Glossi.com.au - Another one for all my Australian girls, this is where I buy my L'Oreal Voluminous mascaras and also the L'Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner because I find it so much more inexpensive, even WITH shipping costs added to it! Fast shipping and great website!
  7. Coastalscents.com.au - Mother of all online shopping for palettes and brushes! I'm sure all of you know this site by now so I don't really need to go on about it :P Great inexpensive brushes, reasonable shipping costs and delivery time was pretty quick considering it usually takes stuff 2 weeks to get here from the States!
  8. MadameMadeline.com - This is where I stock up on my false eyelashes! I think they have the whole range of Ardell false eyelashes and other brands also. Basically, the more you buy, the cheaper it will be per pair of eyelashes. Again, reasonable shipping costs and products were as pictured when it arrived to me. LOVE this website!
  9. eBay.com - Now I know eBay doesn't have the greatest reputation for online shopping and there is some danger in buying stuff off eBay but you just have to look at the sellers, make sure they are Power Sellers, have sold a lot of stuff and have a great feedback percentage rate. If all else fails, make sure you pay through PayPal because if you don't receive your products, you can file a dispute and get your money back! :)

So far I have only had one bad experience with online shopping and that is with www.BeautyshopOC.com. It was such a shame because I really do want some Red Cherry lashes and were looking forward to it for AGES! I'm sure if you read my blog you know what I went through with this unprofessional website and I strongly suggest you stay away from this website and also www.iHeartredcherry.com as they are owned by the same people. These people are so unprofessional, refused to communicate with me, they didn't send the products that I ordered, and they don't even have a working e-mail for goodness sake! Extremely bad customer service, DO NOT BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE!


Lipstick Rules is holding an amazing contest with to win Beauté's Weightless Lip Creme in Masochist! If you guys haven't heard of this yet, please head over to her blog and enter, I have seen this lip creme at work when Pixiwoo did Marlene Dietrich and I can tell you think right now, it is AMAZING!

Good luck everyone!

  11. OMG!!! I agree with Tammy there, you just fed the addicts in me with more drugs! Lol~

    I'm so going to stalk on ACW now :D

  12. I also shop at a few of the same places online. Nowadays I get so scared shopping anywhere else than I normally do just because of hackers and such. But anyways, thanks for the heads up on the last two to stay away from :)

  13. You can purchase Dolly Wink from Ichibankao:

    Which one are you getting? I'm so excited hehee~

  14. i dont understand why people would risk bad customer service... don't they know that word will spread like wild fire?!! tsk tsk !

  15. Ok that allcosmeticswholesale looks awesome!. Nice blog, and I love your haircolor =)

  16. Oh no! You're such an enabler! lol... thank you for sharing, though. :)

  17. Thanks for the heads up on the bad sites. I used to think Eyeslipsface.com was terrible because shipping took ages and they left out half my items without refunding me. but I gave them a second chance a year later and it was great!

  18. WHY DID YOU HAVE TO PUT THAT ALLCOSMETICSWHOLESALE UP?!?!?! :( I saw it one time and I went to it once when I was at work and ZOMG it was like heaven for me! hahaha XD I am not gonna lie, I am a shoppaholic.. I have bought things and I haven't even touched them yet :X but I really don't wanna get rid of them! I'm gonna give myself a bedtime this semster so I wake up early and have time for makeup in the morning :) And I cannot wait until summer! I will be flaunting my made-up face everyday! ha xD

  19. WOW i totally agree.. i ordered from both of those websites because i wanted redcherry lashes, but both of them refused to reply and just took my money. I had to paypal dispute both of them! GRR! I'm on a hunt for other decent sites with those lashes..

  20. one to add...
    has nars and others.
