Here at Glamour, we practically spend our lives scrolling through Feel Unique. You’re probably already well aware of how wonderful it is, but if not, let us enlighten you.
Feel Unique is an absolute treasure trove of beauty products – like, it houses pretty much every brand you’ve ever loved and ever will. They sell everything from makeup to skincare, fragrance, gifts and electricals. There’s also a dedicated men’s grooming section, a whole load of products dedicated to keeping you safe (and beautiful) in the sun and a section which allows you to order free samples through the post. It’s a one-stop beauty shop, basically.
It’s for every reason above that we were over the moon when we spotted that the site are offering up to 20% off their favourite makeup brands. It’s like they knew we were craving a beauty haul.
And it’s not just 20% off their favourite makeup products that the retailer are offering. Some of their best-sellers are on three for two (time to stock up!), and other brands are offering free gifts (decent ones, at that) when you spend a certain amount on their products.
Basically, this is the perfect opportunity to snap up everything you’ve been meaning to buy (boring purchases included) and treat yourself to a few discounted goodies at the same time. What’s not to love?
These are the beauty brands predicted to be BIG in 2020
We’re only a month into the 20s which means there’s a lot left in store for the first year of the new decade. So what will it bring? What will be the talking points (alongside more Brexit)? What will be the stand-out moments? And, who will be the major beauty players?
Here to answer that last one, is online beauty comparison platform, Cosmetify, who tapped into its extensive network of 1,710 brands, 216,650 products and 138 beauty retailers, aggregated the data and put together its predictions of the brands set to break the beauty stratosphere this year.
You’ll be familiar with some. Among them are well-established cult brands like Drunk Elephant and Jeffree Star Cosmetics. But they’ve uncovered some under-the-radar names like Rude Cosmetics (newly launched in Boots), Bondi Boost and Suva who are quickly gathering more noise and building up a fan following.
These are officially ASOS’ top-selling beauty buys
Is it fair to say that ASOS is a national treasure? Sure, it doesn’t have the heritage of M&S, nor the nostalgia of Boots, but ask most millennials which online shopping destination they’d be lost without (especially for next day purchases) and the majority will name ASOS.
Home to approximately 38 zillion brands (*not fact checked), it’s stood us in good stead for wedding day attire, it’s come up trumps with weirdly specific requests like “squiggle print tiered midi dress” (which does, in fact exist, FYI), it’s bailed us out when our favourite Other Stories faux fur teddy coat is sold out on the brand’s own site and its delivered on last minute panic buys like bikinis or hiking boots for imminent holidays.
Given the number of brands it has, and the data it receives on buying habits every day, it’s also the best place to look for trending products. And we don’t just mean the latest dad trainer everyone is jumping on. Alongside fashion, ASOS’ ginormo offering also extends to homeware (Living + Gifts) and beauty (Face + Body), which means you can pick up a pot for your house plant and replenish your skincare stash at the same time as you pick up your swanky new bralet.
The best bit? ASOS has given us a cheeky sneak peek into the top 10 trailblazing beauty products that have been their best-sellers across the past month. Among them, are smart travel solutions like a quick-pack makeup pouch and a 3-in-1 hair styler, alongside skincare heroes and newly launches makeup favourites. Half have already sold out thanks to their popularity. So, if you want in, act fast.
