“With beauty being such an important aspect of women’s lives, we’re proud to bring the best in skincare, makeup, and soon-to-be-launched wellness brands to our customers,” Megan Biebuyck, VP of Marketing at Namshi, told us. “After seeing such success in fragrances, it was only a matter of time before we entered into beauty, with the category being one of the fastest growing in the Middle East, according to Euromonitor. From mega brand favorites like Kiehl’s, NARS, Bobbi Brown, and MAC to hard-to-find brands such as bareMinerals, we’ll be growing our range of beauty and wellness, ensuring we answer to our customers’ product needs whilst delivering the unmatched experience that they’ve come to know and love us for.”
