get it all at Amazon
Amazon carries many beauty lines, often reselling from Sephora and other established online make-up and cosmetics stores. Prices are ok, but if you buy other things from Amazon (and who doesn't) you can sometimes save a little on shipping.
calling Avon
The official Avon website. All current available Avon products are available here, although finding what you need can be a drag, as the site can be confusing and difficult to navigate.

One of the online giants, Beauty.com is also available via Amazon. Plenty of selection, decent prices, a pretty safe bet since Beauty.com is a long established retailer.

incredible prices - great selection
From Hong Kong, Sasa is one of the best places to buy cosmetics and make-up. So far Sasa has the best prices we've seen, and shipping is very reasonable.
Queen of the hill
Been to a Sephora store lately? This dot-com success story started off as a website, and now has opened many real-world locations. Just like the shops, Sephora.com has a great brand selection, including thier own signature lines.
Taiwan's answer to Sasa, StrawberryNet has a comparable selection of brands. Well worth a visit.

Ulta's selection is in a constant state of change. The site stays up to date with the latest beauty buys.
the whale
we all know the store that would take over the world if it could, Wal-Mart has everything that you could ever want or need-all in one place. This is what they would have you believe.
your neighborhood store
Walgreens is the drugstore with all the mid-range brands available. You won't find high-end labels, but you'll be spoiled for choice nonetheless.
