I ordered online on August 13. It was shipped on August 14. Then I got no news until August 21 when they told me *again* that my order had shipped. I got it August 24.
Seems that they ship from the USA, to Canada, to the client. It's a bit ridiculous if you ask me and I find the shipping extremely long for the amount it costs. See beauty delights' similar experience HERE. She was even missing her samples!
As Canadians, we already pay different price (Samantha's Smokey Eyes by Buxom was 6$ more on the Canadian site) and have to pay shipping under 75$ instead of 50$ and we also have to wait this long?! I find the service pretty bad.
That said, it's still exciting to receive products. Here's what I got:
|My freebie samples. Kat Von D lock-in tattoo foundation. 4-pack of Naked foundation. Smashbox primer.|
|Anastasia Hydrafull lip gloss in MOI, awful applicator. A freebie with my order over 35$|
|Tokidoki Perfetto eyeliner (6$) for me and Buxom Samatha's Smokey Eye (26$), for my best friend Samantha!|
Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss
I tried the Anastasia gloss and I find it very hydrating and to me, feels great on the lips and the shade really is totally "moi"! The applicator is really horrible and I was only able to use it to slap on a bit of product on my lips before smoothing it on with my fingers and lip smacking. Ridiculous idea to have a weird plastic paddle as an applicator. It dispenses the wrong amount of product and it's hard to handle. Hate that part.
This gloss is regular price 27$ for 2.2 mL which is really the closest thing to the Naked Princess gloss I reviewed in terms of price. I'd prefer the Naked Princess gloss over this one.
Samantha's Smokey Eye
This is only my thoughts on the product without trying it - it's not even mine afterall! Without trying it, I feel like it's a great price for what's included. It has 4 full sized products: a lip gloss, a liner, a smudge brush and a mascara by Buxom. The packaging is cute and comes with a sort of story about Samantha.
Perfetto eyeliner Tokidoki
Tokidoki products are being discontinued at Sephora so they were on special and this eyeliner was for 6$. I put it on this morning and it's not bad! It easily applies the type of line that I want but it's a hard marker-like applicator which probably wouldn't work super well for artsy designs. It's not smudge-proof. Still, it has been the easiest for me to achieve the line I want so it will be a go-to for me.
