If you have been following me for a while, you know I love makeup and cosmetics. That’s why I was super happy when I found out about Notino! Shortly before my birthday, I was given the oportunity to order some things, which I am today sharing with you.
The products were given to me by Notino, all opinions and reviews are honest and my own.
At Notino you can not only get makeup, but also perfumes, body and hair products, normally cheaper than in other places. From luxurious brands like Chanel or Lancôme, to drugstore brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline, at notino everyone can find something!
Order and delivery
Ordering at Notino was as easy and simple as it gets. You can search the products by brand or by kind (makeup, body, ect). Foundation or Lipstick shades can be chosen directly in the product page. Payment is also extremely easy, you can use PayPal, credit card and of course also with a bill or Sofortüberweisung (for AT/DE people).
What I REALLY liked at Notine, was the delivery time! I ordered it on the 30th of May in the evening (!), received an email at noon on the 31st of May letting me know it had been shipped and on the 1st of June it was at my door step. Notino says their delivery time is 2 to 3 workdays, but if you consider that I ordered it in the evening and got it 1.5 days later, I think that’s pretty cool!
I chose delivery with the Austrian Post and had no issues. I know a lot of people have had problems with the Austrian post, but I think it depends on where you live and the post office in your area.
What I ordered from Notino
There were some things I had been wanting to try out for some time. I also had been looking for a (very!) long time for a blue mask, to counteract the yellow in my hair. A suncream for my face is also something I had been looking for. And I have to say, I did not only find everything I wanted at Notino, but my wishlist has gotten a bit longer!
The first thing I put in my cart was the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation in the color 1N1 Yvory Nude. This is the lightest shade in the sortiment, but I can never find it in store and the next one is Ecru, but way too dark for me. I went on a leap of faith when I ordered this, because I had never swatched it, but luckily the color fits perfectly with my skin!
Next I looked for a sunscreen for my face with a minimum of 50 SPF. I think I went through all of them, while researching reviews online. I found what I was looking for at La Roche-Posay with the Anthelios XL Comfort Creme 50+. It has no perfume, is very water resistant and has no parabens. It is also specially made for sensitive and sun intolerant skins. Perfect for me!
Next I started looking through the hair products, where I found the hair mask Stapiz Sleek Line Blond. I decided to go for the 1000ml for 6.90€, even though I had never tried the mask out. Then I also got a blue toning shampoo as well as a toning protecting spray, both from TIGI Bed Head Dumb Blonde. I have been using TIGI products for a long time, which is why I also wanted to try these out.
Lastly, I chose two drugstore products that I simply cannot find at the drugstore. The first was the Infallible 24h Foundation from L’Oreal. It is a long wearing foundation, specially made for dry skin. I was even lucky to find the correct shade, 015 Porcelain, which is always impossible for me to find in stores, because (as always) it is the lightest in the sortiment and hardly ever sold in physical stores. Then I also got the Color Tattoo 24 von Maybelline in the color 102 Fantasy. I have bought the Color Tattoos more than once in the past and was always very happy with them.
What I did not like so much
I was extremely happy with order, the products and the delivery times from Notino. What personally bothered me was the amount of plastic in the package. Every single product was packed inside of bubble wrap, which I found to be a bit over the top. Sure, we wants things to get to us in perfect condition, but there are other ways that do not include wrapping every item in bubble wrap.
I have to say, I am extrmely happy! The delivery was super quick, everything arrived in less than 2 days and the amount of products and colors you can find at Notino is simply amazing!
I think Notino is especially great for those who cannot find the things in store, who can’t find their shades of makeup or who simply don’t want to go out to get everything they need, because this is one place where you can find everything. The delivery is super quick and you don’t have to run a marathon from store to store just to find a light enough shade of foundation.
