Online shopping to me is vital. I live and work in Central Queensland, which boasts the following makeup stores. Zero. The way I am able to find high end or department store cosmetics and skincare is through the internet.
Now, when shopping online, it is integral to make sure that the company ships to Australia, or at least accepts a forwarding address so you can get your goodies (there is a lot of issues with Sephora and Australia at the moment regarding this issue). New to Australian shipping is Luxola.
Open since mid-2011, Luxola has quickly grown in Southeast Asia and is adamant that their outstanding customer service and swift delivery marks them as one of the best in the business. Boasting over 180 international brands such as Sigma, SK-II, Skin Inc, Sleek Makeup and more!
I was lucky enough to be able to try some of their goodies and see how their ordering system and shipping went, and honestly, it could not have been more flawless. I had no issues and the package was shipped to me within nine days! Amazing for international shipping.
The first thing I picked up was the Sigma Beauty Mrs Bunny Travel Kit* (RRP $100.33) which I am smitten with. I never really thought Sigma brushes would be worth the hype, but my goodness. These are super soft, allow for flawless application and blending and the packaging is to die for. This travel kit is definitely coming with my on my travels overseas!
Next I chose the Alpha-H Luxola Exlcusive Kit* (RRP $62.85) and the Alpha-H Moisture Boosting Facial Mist* (RRP $26.94) which I’ve been eyeing off for ages! I first saw and was interested in Alpha-H products (especially Liquid Gold) reviewed by Beauty Life Michelle some time ago, and I was absolutely stoked to get a chance to try these out. There will be a full review on these ones very soon!
Luxola was kind enough to send me some goodies, as mentioned above, but they also offered my readers a discount for you to use on your first purchase! You can use the code BLX-FLINT at checkout to enjoy 30% off store wide! I did have another blogger try the code and I’ve received word that it didn’t work on Zoeva brushes. I am looking into this now and hopefully will be back with good news for you! This code is valid until 6th December 2014, so get in while you can!
Let me know if you buy anything, I’d love to see your goodies!
