5 Taobao Shops Every Makeup Addict Needs


I have too many makeup brushes. Said no girl ever.

Makeup options are plentiful for the ladies in Singapore – there are your brand name favourites like Bobbi Brown, M.A.C. and NARS that work like a dream but are pretty costly. Then you have SEPHORA and drugstore brands filling the gap.

We won’t beat around the bush – if you’re particular about your makeup tools, Taobao is not the place for you. But if you’re still experimenting and open to using drugstore level quality (or slightly above) – Taobao has a surprising range of affordable and functional make-up tools and accessories that are even cheaper than what you’d find at your local drugstore (Watsons or SaSa). Plus, they even have some makeup application tools to that’ll make your daily makeup routine so much easier.
