The One Thing You Should Never Do When Buying Makeup Online

June 16, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo

We’ve all been there: you’re almost out of your must-have mascara and just don’t have time to hit up Sephora to grab a new one. The solution? Getting your beauty fix online. Buying makeup online is a godsend after all–no need to go to five different Sephoras looking for your exact foundation shade, and with services like Sephora Flash and Amazon Prime, your products can be at your door in 48 hours.

But where should you be using caution when purchasing makeup online? No matter what kind of a deal you think you’re getting, you shouldn’t be buying beauty products on eBay. In the same way that the website tends to have issues with faux designer handbags, it’s also a goldmine for fake luxury beauty products, which often can contain some dangerous ingredients. (We’re talking lead and arsenic here, ladies.)

We know, we know, it’s always tempting to treat yourself to a deal–but unfortunately, this is one situation where if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be sure to stick to websites like brand pages, department stores, Sephora and Ulta where you know you’ll be getting the real deal.
