A Guide to Finding Some of Your Favourite Makeup Brands in Canada

A Guide to Finding Some of Your Favourite Makeup Brands in Canada

By Ambia Staley

Whether you're a self-proclaimed beauty guru or a casual makeup-wearer, you've probably got a few cosmetic products that you can't live without.

Unfortunately for many Canadians, if you're looking for something other than common drugstore brands, you might have to do a little searching in order to track down your favourites. Different stores seem to each carry different brands, and if you skip the stores and head online looking to buy your makeup, you'll find that many brands ship from locations outside of Canada, which often means that you're paying hefty shipping, duties, and customs fees.

Luckily, it's not as hard as you'd think to find some popular makeup brands right here in Canada. If you know just where to look, you can purchase your must-have items a little closer to home and keep some cash in your wallet for more important things, like more makeup.

If you're unsure if where to start, then look no further! In the interest of saving you both time and money, we've gone ahead and put together a cheat-sheet of where you can locate some of your favourite makeup brands in-store and online, right here in Canada.

Before you check out our list, here's a few things to keep in mind:

  • We've only included online retailers who offer free shipping options. Retailers who ship from US with free shipping options are excluded due to possible duties and customs charges.
  • In-store stock varies by location. While a brand may have been spotted at one store on our list, it does not necessarily mean that you can find it at every single location.
