A US Beauty Haul With Shop and Box

So a few days before I embarked on my spending ban for the month of June, I made a sneaky order on Shop and Box with a friend. Shop and Box are a shopping service where you create a wishlist of things you want from a certain country, mine was for the US, and then you get paired with a shopper from that country and they buy all your items and co-ordinate the shipping. You do have to pay them a service fee but it is definitely worth it and the people are always super helpful and makes everything easy to understand. This is the second time I have made an order through them, you can check out my first order and experience here.

I decided to pick up a few things from Colourpop. They do ship to Australia but it's priced by weight where as in the US, it's free over $30. I wanted to try a few new things from them so I picked up the Super Shock Cheek in Between The Sheets, Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, Lippie Stix in Chateau which is the new MatteX formula, and the Lippie Pencils in BFF and Bossy. I also got another of the Ultra Matte Lip in Tulle. For the price, Colourpop is an amazing brand and the quality is top notch. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Next I ordered 4 pan eye shadows from MAC to go in my MAC Palette. In the US they are $6 each! That is ridiculous! I decided to get Woodwinked, Bronze, Embark, and Soft Brown. Also from Sephora, I picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Soft Brown which is the item that originally sparked the idea fro the order and the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer. I have heard so much good things about this primer and I have been on the hunt for a smoothing primer for a while. I ended up getting the smaller size just in case I didn't like it because it isn't the cheapest primer.

R to L: Soft Brown, Woodwinked, Bronze, Embark, BFF, Bossy, Echo Park, Tulle, Chateau, Between the Sheets.
If you are looking at buying products from the US that you can't get shipped straight to you, I would definitely recommend using Shop and Box. Great customer service and everything comes safe and in one piece. I could not recommend them enough!

Have you used this service before?

  1. What an interesting idea. I'll have to see if the have Shop and Box in the UK - as i'd love some ColorPop stuff. Looks like you got some really nice stuff as well, what a bargain on the MAC eyeshadows!

    1. They do ship to and from the UK! Colourpop is one of the best brands out there! And I don't know why they have made the pan eyeshadows that cheap everywhere else! x
