I have to say that online shopping has been a blessing in my life. Being often time poor (and my office is really far from the shops) I love the accessibility of being able to browse beautiful things online and then with a click of a button, it’s pretty much mine in three to five business days thanks to a well organised logistics company! I also love discovering new sites and new products online where I can wander (figuratively) through the pages picking out what’s next to arrive at my door!

Here are a few sites I’ve discovered recently and some of my old favourites for online beauty shopping.

ASOS Beauty

With over 40,000 styles at ASOS, it’s no wonder they call themselves “your one stop fashion destination”. However you might also want to think of ASOS more broadly, perhaps a Beauty Junkie’s Dream?  ASOS carries a huge range of Beauty brands and products, all available at the click of a mouse. Some of the brands ASOS carries include a great range of British brands including Illamasqua, Rimmel London, This Works, Elemis and French brands such as Paul & Joe, Bourjois. It carries it’s own range, ASOS Beauty, and also stocks Bare Minerals.

With haircare, skincare and makeup covered, ASOS is definitely an online beauty destination you should visit.



Normally a place I peruse bags and shoes (with the occasional accidental purchase!), Net-A-Porter has a great range of Beauty brands and products, I recently discovered. Carrying brands like Burberry Make-up, Kevyn Aucoin, SKII, Charlotte Tilbury and Hourglass, Net-A-Porter can now be known as more than just a place for fashion.

Go-To Skincare

Ok, so I admit, I’m a huge fan of Zoë Foster Blake’s new skincare range, Go-To Skincare. What’s not to love about a simple yet effective range of skincare products with all natural ingredients? If you want to know more about the products, then check out our story on the range by clicking here. Definitely visit just to see what the fuss is all about!



Did you know you can order your favourite Kiehl’s products direct from their Australian site? With free delivery on orders over $35, great information on your skin concern to help you find the right product, Kiehl’s is definitely a great place to find something just right for you. My pick is the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing concentrate which is great for preventing or reducing lines. The other plus is that you get sample with purchase so you can get your inner beauty junkie fix with new things to try! 

Bobbi Brown

Like above, Bobbi Brown has a dedicated Australian website for its beautiful range of make up and skincare. Not only can you find your favourite eyeliner or blush (aka the Shimmer brick which is also one of my favourites!), but the site also has make up lessons and video tutorials for more inspiration and ideas.

Mecca Cosmetica


Not only a must visit store for all beauty fanatics, but also online as well! Find all your favourites online at Mecca Cosmetica including my favourite bronzer by NARS. Stocking brands exclusive to Mecca including NARS, Elias Faas and Kate Sommerville, as well as it’s new signature line (read more here) Mecca definitely lives up to its name as a place to go!
