Ever wondered where women got all their affordable makeup products from before the time of Sephora? Probably via online pre-orders but what’s the good of shopping for makeup products online when you can’t even try them on your skin first? You always run the risk of purchasing the wrong shade or deciding that this new product that came in the mail isn’t suitable for your skin type, don’t you?
Here’s a list of 5 cheapest places to get your makeup products from.
Smoochiezz is a local website run by Hazel Peck who launched it in 2007 in order to help herself and others purchase clothes and makeup from the U.S. and the U.K. Since then, she has turned it into a full-time job and now has various locations where you can purchase these uncollected, brand new items ordered by her customers for cheap. Think MAC powder blush sold for $20 when the original retail price is $34! How insane is that?
Smoochiezz’s Showroom is located at 41 Toh Guan Road East, ADL Building #08-03, Monday to Friday from 10AM to 7PM. Smoochiezz’s Makeup Fair is located at Tanjong Pagar MRT, Monday to Friday 10:30AM to 8:30PM, from 2nd June to 26th June 2015.
Think of Luxola as your online Sephora. A wide myriad of brands are being sold on the website, from the highly affordable Sleek Makeup to the higher end Philosophy, with beauty reviews from existing customers and even a short how-to tutorial on how to use the products. New customers get to enjoy a 15% off just by signing up for their mailing list. ‘Nuff said.
Even though Daiso’s makeup products are only sold for $2, some products are on par with your regular L’Oreal or Maybelline products that are sold at Watsons or Guardian’s. One product in particular that I tried and fell head over heels with is their eyebrow pencil. Available in 3 colours – grey, light brown, and brown – the brow pencil stays on surprisingly well even without the use of brow gel. Why spend $32 on a Benefit brow kit when $2 can solve all your brow woes?
People typically wouldn’t go to Guardian stores in search of makeup products and would, instead, opt to visit Watsons or Sasa instead since the latter stores have got a wider range of makeup available. But Guardian has its perks too since it is only in Guardian that you are able to find this brand called Catrice. Try switching the products in the store and you’d be surprised to find out that it only costs a fraction of what you are willing to pay for it.
Coloured eyeliners for $3? Um, yes?!
Probably the least expected place out of the entire list. Mustafa probably brings up an image of cheap luggages, jewellery, and watches but what most of people don’t know is that they also carry a range of makeup products for a very low price, such as the exceptionally pigmented Rhomlon eyeliners for a mere $4.50 and lipsticks from Lakme, an established Indian brand, for only $7.80 The packaging of these products may not be great but sacrifice a bit on the beautiful packaging and you’d be able to save a ton of money.
