It’s the Age of the Internet and we’re no longer restricted to visiting department stores for our favourite beauty buys.

With our pick of the best online beauty retailers, you’ll get discounts, find out about the latest product drops and never be cornered by an enthusiastic makeup counter clerk again, which if we’re honest, is reason enough alone.

Feelunique

Feel Unique brings over 400 brands to its platform, including Redken, Estee Lauder, Liz Earle, Nars … you name it, they’ve got it. The Lounge blog shares news, tips and interviews whilst the outlet store offers great discounts. Unlike many other online beauty retailers, there’s a proper men’s section as well as sample sizes of products in case you want to try before you buy.

Escentual

One of the top retailers for premium beauty brands, this is your one stop shop if you’re looking for a bit of luxury. Established in 2000, Escentual has fostered relationships with the brands it stocks, bringing excellent savings and over 9,000 products to its loyal customer following. Givenchy, Dior and Burberry (to name but a few) are all stocked here, allowing you to pick up your favourite makeup, fragrance and hair care brands all in one place. You’ll find offers, new and top rated products easily thanks to the simple navigation system.

Lookfantastic

Housing over 350 brands, this is the largest online beauty retailer in Europe. Everything from Benefit to Bare Minerals can be found there and due to the sheer volume of products there are always loads of offers going on. A helpful countdown timer tells you when to order by for next day delivery, so when you run out of your favourite products you can rest assured knowing they’ll arrive within 24 hours.

Beauty Pie

Marcia Kilgore (the woman behind brands such as Soap & Glory) made the genius move to set up this online store which brings makeup products to customers at the factory cost prices. By cutting out the middle man (ie, the shops) Beauty Pie is able to bring its customers products at the prices that factories make them for. For £10 a month you can buy up to £100 worth of retail cost makeup but for factory cost prices. It’s the sight that beauty insiders are going mad for.

LoveLula

LoveLula is the name; natural beauty is the game with this only store. Made up of a small team that hand picks and tests every brand it sells, LoveLula is particularly picky about Parabens, animal testing and SLSs so that you don’t have to be. Set up in 2004 by a new mother looking for natural products to use on her baby, it’s ideal for those looking to reduce the number of chemicals they come into contact with. Brands such as Bee Good and Dr Hauschka can be found and there’s even a subscription box service.

Cute Cosmetics

This is a family run business specialising in cruelty-free, vegan, organic and eco cosmetics. With easy-to-navigate ethics filters, you can quickly find the products you’re looking for. Brands such as Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Concrete Minerals and Neve offer alternative products for those trying to live more ethically and the blog keeps customers in the loop about eco beauty. Delivery is free on orders over £40.

The Body Shop

The Body Shop was way ahead of the curve with its conscientiousness; tackling issues of animal testing and cruelty long before other brands. Whilst it’s easy to dismiss it as somewhere you shopped as a teenager, its makeup and hair ranges feel, look and smell great - and all at reasonable prices. An added bonus of shopping in the online store is the ‘Tips and Advice’ section, which offers advice everything from beauty trends to sleep, skin type and choosing the right makeup products.

The Beauty Store

Offering big discounts across a range of makeup and perfume brands, The Beauty Store is the one to go to if you’re looking for a bargain. Brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Clarins and Yves Saint Laurent are reduced by up to 50 per cent, meaning you could be lucky enough to pick up your favourite beauty buys for a steal. Gift ideas are helpfully arranged by price brackets and you only have to spend £25 for free delivery.

Cult Beauty

Great for: those who want quality over quantity

Want to get your hands on the latest beauty products to drop before everyone else? Then Cult Beauty will become your new best friend. Bringing both exclusives and newly launched products to the website, it also has consumers testing out the products, helping to weed the hype from the ones that actually work. Set up as a kind of ‘beauty hall of fame’ it offers its customers the very best of the best, helping you to make better choices and not waste your money.

Beauty Bay

With more than 10,000 products to browse, including brands such as Stila, St Tropez and Jurlique, Beauty Bay will keep you up to date on both new products and trends. What makes it unique is its blog offering tutorials on colour matching, makeup techniques and tailoring your look to the new season. It’s great if you’ve never felt entirely sure how to contour or achieve the perfect eyeliner flick.
