This was a very easy transaction. The shipment was fast, the selection is wonderful and the prices are great. I have already placed another order!
Thanks for the great service.

Have never been disappointed in this merchant and have done business with them for years. They have my full endorsement.

I am a very happy first-time customer of beautyencounter.com. I will be a repeat customer. I am pleased with the ease of their online shopping, as well as their customer care service at their 1-800 number. The beauty products I ordered (perfume) came in the most exclusive gift boxes. They are gorgeous! They were a great bargain as well. I have already recommended this company to my family and friends (and just in time for them to do their Christmas shopping, too!)

They shipped the order quickly, was well packed and the price for the merchandise was good. Also, the least costly shipping option was very cost effective and reasonably fast. (Order to doorstep in just under 1 week, halfway across the country).
Creig S.

Totally satisfied with my order. I could not find this product anywhere else and I was so happy to find it on your site. I got it the day you said I would, well wrapped (it is glass) and I will shop with you again. Thanks!

Ok, so my last order was mammoth. The orders keep growing because my friends and family are all ordering through me! So, please people listen up and trust me-this is the easiest, fastest, friendliest transaction you could ever have! Get confident and get ordering!

I've been a customer for at least 3 or 4 years and am satisfied with their service, selection, and prices. They also carry some fragrances that are difficult to find and not carried in local department stores in the DC area.

Thank you so much! The product came neatly wrapped and the parcel even had a bow on it! This truly makes for an extra-special shopping experience I, as a customer, value very highly. I will definitely think of you for my next online purchase.

Thank you very much.

My favorite lipstick is Lancôme Magnetic Rouge Truly. It had been discontinued so I thought I would never find it. To my surprise, Beautyencounter.com had my lipstick! The price was awesome and it was shipped fast. Thanks!

I received the product quickly and wrapped securely. Email confirmation came immediately and price was comparable. I asked not to be contacted by email and they have honored that. Service was excellent; I will definitely use Beauty Encounter again if needed.
