How to pack cosmetics and makeup products for shipping
Before mailing cosmetics domestically or overseas, pack each item properly to prevent damage in transit. We have prepared some general instructions on how to pack and ship cosmetics by courier:
- Make sure that your beauty products are tightly closed. Seal lids with tape.
- Ship the lipstick, foundation, mascara, eyeshadow or other toiletry product in their original packaging.
- Place any liquid products in a leak-proof bag.
- Wrap each product in thermal plastic or bubble wrap and seal with tape.
- Place the items in a box and add enough cushioning materials.
- Close and seal the box with tape. You can label it as “fragile” when sending glass bottles.

Regulations on shipping cosmetics and beauty products in Europe and internationally
Depending on the countries of collection and delivery, different rules may apply for sending beauty products such as makeup internationally. Businesses can legally ship non-flammable and non-hazardous cosmetic products, domestically and overseas. Vetted companies that ship cosmetics and makeup as freight benefit from CMR insurance.
If you are shipping beauty products or makeup as an individual, consider that liquids are not recommended for sending by mail or courier. If you still decide to ship cosmetics or other toiletries internationally, we recommend you carefully pack liquid products since they are not insured in the unlikely event of loss or damage. Cosmetics that include flammable substances or alcohol (e.g. nail polish, acetone, perfumes, colognes, aftershave products with alcohol) are not allowed for transport within the EU or overseas and can only be sent at your own risk.
