Get Your Makeup at Strawberry Net Today! When shopping for makeup, there is more to consider than one would think. For some, it is about colors. For others, it is about brand names. And for many of us, it's about price and quality.

Looking beautiful can cost a pretty penny. There are many things to consider when evaluating makeup products, such as product and shipping costs, as well as quality vs quantity. It can be a delicate balance, especially since once you find a product that shows off your best features, you naturally want more of it.

Jacquelyn Lang founded Beauty Encounter (BE) in the 1990's. Shifting her focus to online sales in 1999, Lang used her online store to provide budget-friendly beauty products. BE is one of the few beauty companies accredited with the Better Business Bureau. New customers can read over 400 positive reviews to get a better idea of this great company.

The website lists a wide range of makeup products. You can narrow your search by selecting any of the following categories:

  • Face
  • Eye
  • Lips
  • Brushes
  • Nail care

If you want to streamline your search even further you can also shop by price range, desired color combination, complexion, coverage, and preferred ingredients. We highly recommend checking out their "Niche Collection," a page dedicated to discounts on more expensive makeup items from famous brand names.

BE offers an impressive inventory. Customers can find items from some of their favorite brands, including the following names:

  • Christian Dior
  • Giorgio Armani
  • Marc Jacobs
  • Maybelline
  • Shiseido

To enjoy the full value of your purchase, we recommend taking advantage of BE's rewards program. Members receive BE points for purchases. The company allows the member to use points for future purchases. The program is free, with information readily available on the website for anyone interested in joining. At the time of this review, BE promised 250 points simply for signing up. If you have additional questions, contact BE via phone, email, or chat. They provide free shipping on orders over $60.00 to anywhere in the continental United States.

In addition to the rewards program, customers can enjoy further savings by checking out their sales page, where they will find the following options:

  • Clearance
  • Deals of the Week
  • Hot Deals
  • Buy More & Save

Overall, the site provides a fun shopping experience. We were very impressed with the site's organization. We especially loved the great discounts on high-end brand names. On the strength of their rewards program and exclusive discounts, we give Beauty Encounter good marks.

Return Policy:

15-day policy for new or unused items with a receipt

Planet Beauty has been in business since 1992. According to their website, they strive to provide, "a one-stop shopping experience". The company carries an extensive inventory of over 20,000 beauty products.

Regarding makeup, the site offers a wide array of popular and specialty brands. You can narrow your search through helpful filters:

  • Category
  • Rating
  • Bristle type
  • Skin type
  • Color family

Customers can peruse through competitively priced brand names such as AHAVA, Bare Essentials, and Ren. You can also customize your search even further by selecting any of these options:

  • Ingredients
  • Finish
  • Concerns

We were happy to learn about the company's loyalty program. This program rewards points to customers when they spend a certain amount of money:

  • Silver: Earn $15 for every 350 points; one point for every dollar spent.
  • Gold: Once you earn 350 points, you're promoted. Gold members receive 1.25 points for every dollar spent.
  • Platinum: Earn 750 points and receive 20% all purchases. Platinum members receive 1.5 points for every dollar spent.

Our only concern with this company is that they do not offer any reward points for online purchases. Unfortunately, the program is only available for in-store purchases. We hope they will reconsider this policy and provide bonus points for online purchases.

One area in which Planet Beauty shines is customer service. They also offer free shipping for orders over $34.00. However, this offer is limited to the continental United States. We found over 300 reviews on other websites, praising Planet Beauty for their excellent service.

Overall, the site is sleek and organized - when it is functioning properly. Unfortunately, across several days, we had difficulties accessing the website. And, considering most beauty sites use rewards programs to set them apart, we were disappointed they did not include online purchases in their rewards program.
