We’ve all heard about comparison sites for insurance; we all know to Compare Markets not Meerkats (is it just me that’s totally in love with meerkats purely because of this advert?!). Well there’s a new kind of comparison site online and its one that seems far more interesting. MyBeauty Compare works on the same principle as other comparison sites; you put your details in, what you’re looking for, and it offers recommendations before (and this is the most impressive bit) directing you to the place where you can buy it the cheapest.
For a budget-restricted window shopped like me, this is bad news! A site where I can look at makeup matched to me, and then find where I can buy it cheapest. Too easy! But I reckon if you have self-control this is an easy way of grabbing items from your lust-list at the cheapest possible price.
The registration process is a little more long-winded that other websites, but I can only describe this as a good thing. When your register you answer a not-too-long, not-too-short questionnaire giving details about your skin and hair condition, as well as skintone and eye colour. All of this helps to ensure that you will never be recommended unsuitable products by the site. I was really impressed with the layout of the questionnaire; very intuitive! I completed my registration in 10 minutes, so it doesn’t take long at all.
I did at first think the website would be gimmick-y and not to my tastes, and I certainly didn’t think that products would end up being tailored to me. I’m pleased to say I was very wrong, and I’m really impressed with the site. I’ve not noticed a single product that I thought ‘eurgh’ about, which is great!
I’m also pleased to see that the site is directing users to the cheapest offering of the product they wish to buy – even little differences like a £1 here or there add up when you’re on a budget! If you are a beauty and product lover like me, this website is likely to become invaluable!
One of my favourite things about the site, though, has to be the product reviews (written by other beauty fanatics, and people who really know what they are talking about) and the forum. Talking to other users is definitely going to become a little bit of addiction, so much so I’ll be adding this site to my ‘block list’ during the week as I know it’ll be a distraction!
The site is free to register on, and it only takes a few minutes, so I highly suggest signing up here and having a browse – I’m so glad there’s now a beauty comparison website, and I’m sure my bank balance is too!
What do you think of MyBeauty Compare?
I was not paid for this post, but I was promised a few small products in return. All views are my own, and I was actually visiting MyBeauty Compare before being asked to write this post.
