If I had a Ringgit for every time I failed to get a beauty product / brand simply because the official retail store has yet to open in Malaysia, I’d have enough saved up to open my own cosmetics store – seriously.
Unlike our neighbouring countries like Singapore and Thailand, official brands are slower to launch here in Malaysia and local beauty addicts are left to resort to purchasing online instead, which means having to deal with expensive shipping fees, long awaited deliveries and most importantly, the search for online stores that sells authentic beauty products.
To help eliminate this exhausting process, I’d like to make my top 5 online store recommendations which guarantees original beauty products. These online stores also tend to offer amazing discounts, speedy shipping process and accepts local bank transactions such as Maybank2u and also Paypal payment services. Happy shopping!
