To enhance beauty. To express individuality. To cover up blemishes. To feel good. These are just some of the many reasons why people wear makeup. Others just love making looks and playing around with shades and different products.
Thanks to beauty vloggers such as NikkieTutorials, Ellko and Grav3yardGirl, makeup products and brands are more popular than ever. And beauty shoppers from all over the world love buying these from U.S. web stores. Why is that you wonder? Three things:
- Availability: Many brands are sold only in U.S.
- Price: Brands that are available internationally are much cheaper when bought in the U.S.
- Trust: Brands sold locally could potentially be fakes.
Typically, Sephora is the U.S. retailer that comes to mind as a one-stop shop for all things cosmetic. Unfortunately, Sephora does not accept orders with freight forwarding addresses. Too bad, but this does not refrain makeup shoppers around the world to satisfy their thirst for foundations, lip kits, primers and many more beauty products! Our US Unlocked Card holders know the way to getting their makeup shopping fix. To help you narrow down your makeup retailers, we listed the top 10 U.S. beauty brands according to our customers. Many of these are also a fave among famous Middle Eastern beauty bloggers Dalal AlDoub and Huda and Mona Kattan.
