Always Mei (pronounced may)
Why is it so expensive to look beautiful? Why does looking good have to be about spending lots of money? During a typical weekend evening, over dinner and a few drinks, us three sisters, were having our usual discussions about family, friends and life. On that particular evening we were grumbling and moaning about the high cost of cosmetic products that help us women look beautiful. We all agreed on how expensive luxury cosmetic brands can be. So, we started sharing with each other our experiences with some very affordable but nice products that we each found.
We each started to say things like, “I really like this lipstick that’s pretty and cheap,” and “oh, I love this mascara and it’s cheaper and just as nice as the luxury brand I used to use.” We started to realize that it would be great if there was a place that would carry all these very affordable cosmetic products in one place? Oh, but why don’t we offer these products that we love so much to other women? We could create a place where others can find quality cosmetics at more affordable prices. We started our research and realized that there are plenty of companies offering what we were looking for, but not everyone knew about their products or have even tried them. So, we have picked through the products based on their quality, what we have tried and liked, and brought them to you with the goal that they have to be an excellent value for it’s price. See staff picks.
We only carry products we would use and think our customers would appreciate. With this in mind, we change our inventory and brands from time to time when we find more products to offer. Our prices start at $1 and our average price is between $1.50 to $2.00. We love to hear from you, our customers, about what you think of the products that we carry. Whether you love a particular lipstick or we need to carry a mascara or brand that we don’t currently offer, we love to hear all of it. We are open to your suggestion to help us bring to you more products that you will love. We adjust our inventory based on our customers’ beauty wishes. We hope that we are fulfilling a need for women like us, by giving you lots of quality cosmetics and beauty accessories at affordable prices. Giving you the freedom to try and have fun with lots of variety and brands to choose from.
With that idea, we named our business Always Mei (May) with mei meaning beautiful. Because you don’t need to have lots of money to be always mei.
