Wondering where to buy a certain makeup brand in Canada? I created this guide to help fellow Canadian makeup lovers find beauty brands online through sites that will ship to Canada.
Shipping from Other Countries
I prefer sites that have any customs duties, taxes, or brokerage fees built in to the shipping rate, so you know in advance exactly how much you’re paying. Be careful of sites that state they are “not responsible for any import duties”. You may be faced with paying an additional C.O.D. bill, including duties or taxes (usually 5%-15%) PLUS whatever brokerage fees the shipping company charges. UPS and FedEx brokerage fees can be as high as 50% of your order price!
Best Shipping Method
Select USPS (United States Postal Service) as the shipping method when available. It may not be as fast, but you wont have to pay any brokerage fees. I’ve never incurred any additional charges when receiving packages shipped via USPS.
