Hi Beauty Lovers,
Australia is awesome, who can get past the too-cool-for-school cafes, addictive coffee and hidden laneways. But one thing I really wish I could change is the extremely high cost of makeup and cosmetics! Take my favourite MAC Russian Red lippie, it’s a mere 16 USD in the States (approx 19 AUD), but costs a whopping 36 AUD in Australia! I do love a red pout but paying so much in Australia really frustrates me.
Hence, I decided to do some research. Pricing for some cult beauty products in Australia vs ShopandBoxing them from the US directly to my doorstep. And I calculated, even after adding in international shipping + the ShopandBox service fee, with ShopandBox I was still paying way less than what it costs for me to buy it from the departmental store down the street. Yes, there’s nothing like instant gratification, but I can definitely wait for three days with ShopandBox’s 1 -3 day express shipping, and I think my pocket is going to thank me in the long run.
So here goes, a little comparison for all your lovelies!
