The little known beauty store has beaten last year’s winners to the top spot

A little-known budget beauty store has been voted ‘best online shop’ in a poll of 10,000 shoppers for consumer group Which?

Reviewers gave AllBeauty.com a score of 87 out of 100 for its ease of use, range, delivery and prices, beating last year’s winners AO.com and LizEarle.com to the top spot.

Which? said: “AllBeauty.com comes top of our leader board this year. Its customers raved about the online make-up shop’s deals on cosmetics, its selection of products and quick delivery.”

For the second year running, Britain's biggest mobile phone network, EE, came bottom of the table with just 56 as consumers criticised the brand's difficult-to-navigate website and poor delivery service.

Others that proved a disappointment included the websites of Missguided, Wickes, Sports Direct and Homebase - all falling in the bottom 11 online shops.
