Everyone has those brands that they never really know how they feel about them. It’s normally for moral reasons, or cruelty free vs not. An issue with an owner, or an altercation in the beauty community that keeps them away. I’m looking at you Doe Deere and JStar. I have been thinking about this lately, and realizing I also have a few brands that I NEVER buy from even though I desperately want to. Why not? Lets find out!
This brand is based in Germany, and their beauty products are amazing. The first blasted on the scene with some amazing reviews for makeup brushes that came in on the less expensive side. Then they started rolling out with all these beautiful palettes and I was hooked. Hooked to looking! I can’t seem to actually hit check out for some reason. The cart abandonment rate on this website for me is at 100%.
It’s clear that the pricing is reasonable, I have seem many a review and I KNOW they are incredible products. So what is my deal? Shipping is only about $12, so it’s not that. I can only seem to look at these items and think I already have them, even though I still buy things from here. Maybe it’s an aversion to smaller brands… We will never know.
UGH, the Queen of Hearts palette has been calling me for SO long. I want it so hard, and so fast. I actually was heartbroken when I thought I missed out on it. (It was once limited edition and they have since brought it back). They now also sell it on beauty bay as well, for an extra $20. I want to not be super pissed off with them for that But come on beauty bay. WHY A $20 MARK UP.
The shipping has a $10 flat rate to Canada, and the brand is cruelty free. ColouredRaine was started by a regular financier who wanted a change in her life, and was always into makeup. I think we can all relate to that.
Now that I have seen the shipping costs, it’s actually edging me more towards hitting that check out button for real this time.
This one is tough, because the prices are incredible and the brand is award winning on so many levels. Skincare has become more important to me over the last few years, because I can no longer get away with a splash on the face, and not have my face peel off moments later.
I do love the pricing, and that it’s available at Sephora, but they NEVER have everything I want in stock at one time, and if I wait out one product to come back in stock another pops back out. Their pricing ranges around the $5-$15 range for everything in the line, which is incredible. The lack of stock is what makes me hold off on this brand.
Have you tried any of these brands? What was your experience? Give me some recommendations?
