I love online shopping, I confess. I think most of the time, I’d rather buy online than going to a store, you know? And one of the great things about living in the US is to have access to the Amazon and its products, ranging from electronics to clothes, food to books … I know a lot of people takes advantage of the trip to New York also to do some buy things on the website, since the prices are super great. And Amazon is, sometimes, the best place for some beauty shop, you know? You can find products from famous brands such as Kerastase and L’Oreal Professional. But for anyone who loves a good find in beauty – like me! hahaha – Amazon is also great. You can find different brands and products – that you never heard of. Amazon has a section called Movers & Shakers, with the list of best sellers in several categories – including, of course, beauty. This list changes all the time, and it’s cool to check it and see which are the products that are trending. BuzzFeed and Byrdie made some lists highlighting some of these products, and I decided to put together a list for you with some of the products that I thought interesting and promising.
