A study last year revealed that the average woman in the UK spends about £9,500 a year on make-up and so for resellers this is a profitable market to invest in.
Whether it’s moisturiser or concealer, this industry is certainly a money making opportunity for wholesale buyers as more and more consumers appear to be investing in cosmetics.
The team at Wholesale Scout are aware just how popular this market is and have been looking for wholesalers that can offer competitive trade prices for products. Check below for the products the team have found at wholesale prices and find out what profit margins you could be making as a reseller:
Foundation is a staple part of every woman’s make-up bag and there are a variety of brands. Laura Mercier, Dior, Smashbox and MAC are just a few of the designer brands that are popular and if found at a competitive wholesale price, they can offer a healthy return on investment. This wholesaler of designer cosmetics has had some very competitive deals on make-up and at one point the wholesaler was offering a job-lot of MAC loose powder for £228. At that price a reseller could secure a profit of over £200 per lot. There are a variety of high street brands that could be worth investing in too – Rimmel, L’Oreal and Revlon are all popular with consumers. Many wholesalers offer huge discounts on bulk purchases and with most high-street foundations selling for between £7 – £20, there are definitely some money making opportunities for resellers.
Mascara is bought all year round on the high street and many consumers look online to find deals on designer mascara. If you’re a reseller reselling online on sites like eBay then if you can find a designer brand at a competitive wholesale price and resell for a reasonable price, you should be able to resell in large volumes. Brands worth looking out for include MAC, Dior and Lancome.
Eye shadow palettes come in all shapes and sizes but the team found a particularly good palette from one wholesaler offering a bargain. The team found one wholesale supplier offering a batch of 25 Smashbox Pro Palettes for £212 – with a likely resale price of £400.
