Coterie shopping site launches today

Today marks the launch of a new online luxury beauty retailer, Coterie!

So why should we care? Another online beauty e-tailer?! Well, I was able to get early access to the site through my iFabbo membership, and I clicked around a bit. Not only can you purchase beauty – like Butter London – with exclusive offers, but you can also customize the site through the “My Vanity” tab. If you put in your preferences – define your beauty style, select your skintone and list your concerns, for example – you can receive suggestions for products that might be a good fit for you. You can also favorite products that you find and love on the site. Run out of something you bought a couple months before? You can also replenish past purchases – with free shipping. Coterie struck me as an easily navigated site, too.

Coterie not only offered iFabbo members a sneak peek at their site, but also their shopping experience, so I took advantage of their offer to pick up three Butter London polishes and a Matte Finish top coat. From the colors offered on the site, I chose Pillar Box Red, Bluey and West End Wonderland! Here’s some swatches.

I also experimented with the Matte Finish and lacquers when I first got them and used Bluey, West End Wonderland and Matte Finish together for a NOTD:

I used Matte Finish over West End Wonderland on my accent nail, and used it diagnolly across Bluey on each nail.

Shipping was quick. I received it in less than a week, which I loved! There was some initial confusion when I went to order because the access code was wrong, but the company quickly fixed that and I experienced no issues after that.

Upcoming brand shopping “events” on the site include Perricone MD, Stila, Susan Posnick and Kevyn Aucoin. If you’re curious about what’s going to be on the site and when, here’s all the ways you can keep up with Coterie on social media!

So what do you think – will you be checking out Coterie? Do you already have a favorite site like this?
