Jessica Jean Myers, the makeup artist who was at my bachelorette, is running her first-ever giveaway over on her blog and decided to enter.
This means that I need to check out Aphothica.com, an online beauty store that Jessica loves.
And I can see why, this site has a ton of products on it, everything from makeup to hair care to even candles, from such well-known brands as Burt’s Bees, Stila and Clinique to more niche and emerging lines like m Luxe and one of my favourites, REN.
Besides offering of ton of stuff, this site also offers plenty of details on the products it sells. Take for example this product page for Smashbox’s famed Photo Finish Foundation Primer. In addition to featuring customer reviews, the site explains what the product does, who it’s for and displays key and full ingredients, as well as list all the colour options and offer image close-ups.
And like any good beauty product pusher, this site does offer a loyalty program as well as hassle-free returns. There’s also free shipping on orders over $49 and the site claims to offer the lowest guaranteed price.
Yes, it is an American site, so all the prices are in American dollars, but with the loonie flying high, those US prices just mean that everything’s extra cheap for us Canadians.
I was going to do a Sephora run in the near future to pick up a few things but first I’m going to do some number crunching with Apothica.com and see if maybe it’s cheaper to order those items from this site.
