    Your favourite discount cosmetics websites? 25th Nov 10 at 6:23 PM
    Hi, just wondering what everyone's favourite websites are for cheap cosmetics? I'm always on the lookout for discounted stuff because I spend a fortune on beauty products - easily over £150 a month damn MAC addiction doesn't help! (in my defense, I'm a tee-total non-smoker so I save money in those areas, amongst others!)

    My fave websites are:

    www.feelunique.com (for more higher end products, I buy Redken/Decleor/Elemis etc from there)

    www.cheapsmells.com (good for fragrances and make-up brands like Rimmel/Bourjois/Urban Decay, I've also got good deals on Tigi there in the past)

    www.lookfantastic.com (they tend to do really good offers and free gifts)

    I use a lot but these are my faves!

    Ohh I forgot to mention Debenhams as well, not exclusively cosmetics I know, but they do great beauty deals and the Beauty Club rewards online make it worthwhile!

    Hi, I like fragrancedirect.co.uk. I've ordered from them a few times. Foolishly I bought a mineral powder foundation from Boots yesterday, couldn't get the Maybelline one I wanted so I had to buy a L'Oreal one which was £14 and not as good. Why didn't I check fragrancedirect first? They have the Maybelline one I wanted for £3.50. Doh! Only £1.99 p&p as well.

    I like direct cosmetics, got some really good bargains for Christmas presents and found some new products that I like that normally wouldn't have bought e.g. got a Bourjois mascara for £2.99, rather than £8.99! They're probably better if you like to try out new things rather than looking for specific products. Always had great service from them and quick delivery.

    It really depends what I want to buy, some online stores don't sell the brand I want, some undercut others, I don't really have a favorite, I have about 7 or 8 which I compare with each other and see what the best option is. Discount codes make a bit of a difference too.

    Is this site any good? I have just discovered it so did a search on MSE to see if it was a good site?

    I've been recommended http://www.gorgeousshop.co.uk/ but I've not used that before either. Anyone know if it is any good?

    Thanks
