Makeup.co.nz is run by Makeup New Zealand Ltd, a New Zealand owned business. Launching in 2012, we were the first authorised, pure-play e-commerce store to sell makeup in New Zealand. We operate 100% online, and do not operate physical retail stores.
All of our stock is right here in New Zealand, in our Auckland facility. We ship fast, so you can get the makeup you want fast.
Our mission at Makeup.co.nz is to build the best makeup site in New Zealand. We aim to stock a curated range of popular, international brands to suit the tastes of New Zealand consumers.
We do not parallel import or deal in grey market products. We are authorised retailers for all the brands we stock. We always deal with the brand itself, or their NZ distributor so you know you are receiving authentic, fresh cosmetics.
We want to create a place where kiwis can purchase makeup without the high shipping costs, or long delivery times that often come with ordering from overseas websites
Customers are our focus here at Makeup.co.nz, so we offer Free Shipping when you spend $50 or more. We add new brands regularly, so please keep checking back often.
We stock a wide variety of cosmetic brands. From mainstream to indie, established to new. You can view our full brands list here.
