Shopping website won't ship Internationally? Try this...

I have tried many times to order things from American websites, only to find at the checkout, they don't ship out of the USA! Grr it got very frustrating..
Until I heard of these forwarding services, Shipito being one of them, that will help get my stuff to me!

So how works is, you first sign up for an account which is now only $5 USD to activate!
That secures your account & an American address to enter at the checkout.
The key to it, your "Suite #00000" is what Shipito needs to send your box to you..
For example; I made an order on Sephora for some things I've wanting for a while, once they ask for my address at the end of the process, I enter my Name & the address Shipito gave me.
Once Sephora sent my package, I then enter the Tracking number in the "Individual Packages" Section of my Shipito Account & filled out the Customs form correctly. 
Once my precious package arrived to their warehouse in Nevada, I received an email telling me to update my delivery options, top my account up with money & they could send..
Little did I know, a Perfume sample could not be sent unless I chose a much more expensive shipping option..I made a "Special Request" to remove this, that cost me $5 USD!
But once that request was completed, another email came through...
"Sorry, Package-A containing Alcohol/Liquid cannot be sent, please change your shipping option"
A 0.05oz sample of a Make up Primer!
Another request, another $5 USD...Had to be done cause at this point, 
I just wanted my stuff!!
Finally! After a few days of back & forth emails, $40 NZD for Fast Shipping & waiting a week, my things got here!!
I am soo happy with my products, I have almost forgotten the trouble to get them!
- smashbox Masterclass 2 Palette AMAZING!! $59 USD
- Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer LOVE! $30 USD
- Urban Decay Seven Days of Shadow Sample, Great Quality!! 
The smashbox Palette packaging came broken but I had read that in the reviews it breaks easy, it wasn't any of the powders! So I don't mind much!
All in all, it was absolutely worth it to get my lil beautys to me
I will do it again! Just Maybe not too soon..Can get expensive ;)

iHerb - Trusted Brands, Healthy Rewards

Well well well...Here I am again, Shopping for Drugstore make up online!
So I found this site ( searching for "Buy e.l.f products NZ" on Google, it's also advertised on most sites now, including YouTube, I couldn't believe this was the first time I noticed it! hah :)
I looked through their large range of e.l.f cosmetics and could not believe the prices!
From around $1-5 USD!!

As you can see, I picked a few things up when placing my order ;)
Once again, mostly e.l.f cosmetics!
- e.l.f  HD Under Eye setting Powder in Sheer -$3
- e.l.f  Flawless Finish Oil free Foundation in Porcelain -$3
- e.l.f  Clarifying pressed Powder in Ivory -$2
- e.l.f  Matte Lip Colour in Coral -$3
- e.l.f  3pc Nail Polish Set in Natural -$3
- e.l.f  Kabuki Face Brush -$6 LOVE!
- EcoTools 5pc Essential Eye Brush Set (w/ Travel Bag) -$8
- Hurraw Organic Lip Balm in Vanilla -$3

The Shipping on iHerb is also calculated by the weight of you order,
So to get all of these products to me in NZ, It cost around $8-10 NZD (Tracking)
For my order plus the shipping, I think I spent approx $45 ??
That is Amazing!!!
One of the products I ordered didn't come, so I quickly emailed them to check..
Within 30mins I had a reply explaining they had sold out but I was refunded before they sent the rest.
I forgot to mention, it arrived in one week!! Everything was packaged safely with paper so nothing could break on the way!
I highly recommend this site for all your e.l.f products and other Vegan, Organic & Animal Friendly needs,
Check it out!!

My First Order  xox

So, it's Sunday night here in New Zealand & I'm bored in bed searching online sites for affordable make up!! One of my LucyLoves is the cosmetics brand Too Faced!
In New Zealand, it's really hard to find Brands like this such as Urban Decay, Tarte, M.A.C etc
Well, after a few failed attempts on US websites such as Ulta &, I found this almost secret, very affordable website -  and they ship Internationally!!
Finally! One thing I have been waiting forever to own is the Too Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer!
Shipping Internationally to New Zealand was $20 for orders over $75 dollars, (determined by weight I guess) estimated arrival time 2-4 weeks & just like ordering from somewhere such as Sephora & Ulta, they have Free Samples! with every order! They also stock Body/Skin/Hair Care, Mens Grooming and Fragrances!
Check it out if you live in NZ & are looking for brands like Too Faced, theBalm etc at great prices
If your in the US, Free Shipping on orders over $49!!!
Woohooo LucyLoves!! xx
