No need to wait for your pardesi phuppos, khalas or chaachis!

The day our Touché Éclat by Yves Saint Laurent refused to come out, we finally understood what our Economics’ professor was on about all those years ago. Where should we head with our limited resources and unlimited human wants? While we can’t address all your wants, we can provide you a solution for basic ones like where to find Mac Ruby Woo once it dies on you. Gone are the days when getting your hands on your favourite makeup products was only possible when a certain aunty was visiting from ‘abroad’. Local online makeup shops are all the rage these days. But which ones should we trust? Who isn’t selling us Bobby Brown under the presence of Bobbi Brown? How do we decide on our shade without a tester? And how do I not get overwhelmed by all the options?

Don’t give up just yet. To help you get the most bang from your buck, we tried tons of online retailers and here’s our list of trusted online pages. Now you can get all the latest Kat Von D shadows, Tarte concealers, and Mac lipsticks delivered right at your doorstep.
