Hey cali, there are one or two ebay.in shops which sell these stuff.. maybe you could try them…

But anybody who is reselling mac and el is bound to be selling high.. :-(

The best you could do is ask your friends who have access to these brands and send them over… (*Nudge nuddge* You know which friends i’m talking abt, donchoo?)

But the shipping rates are soooooooooooooooooooooo incredibly high..like this beauty.com was selling elf mineral powder, which was prices Rs.300, but the shipping cost was Rs.3000/-! I mean helloooooooooooooooo!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

You know Cali, if you really search hard on eBay you will find some good deals.. I mean i found many sellers for NYX stuff with reasonable shippings… And yeah, coastal scents has really resonable shipping charges.

I had the exact same experience with online shopping!! I ordered a makeup brush set from US drugstores-whose price was estimated around 700 bucks-before hitting the order button I saw the shipping was worth INR 2700!!! :-D :-D ..almost had a heart attack. Till now I only found the coastal scent’s shipping rate to be somewhat reasonable..I spent an entire night hunting for free shipping websites.. :-( :-( :-( ..no avail….

Yeah..I thought of ordering stuffs from there. But, the reviews are quite mixed about this website. There are positive and negative reviews, and from what I checked online everywhere – the negative reviews were more!! :-? :-? :-? :-? ..Have you ordered anything from that website? How was your experience?

again, i order only my toys (computer spares, joystick, graphics card , external HD, ram etc etc) also i get few clips , ipods and phones f from ebay and other sites, :waytogo: ..

in short anything with warranty is good to buy from online, also i prefer to shop in stores/malls (good way to window shop all and the touch and feel is so different :jiggy1: :jiggy1: )

Hey ,
I have a doubt. If i buy NYX from Cherryculture , is it cheaper. And is there any customs duty stuff to be payed other than the total payment( price+shipping charges) you make in the website. Also have any of you tried Google checkout?!! :O Anyone who has shopped from that website please tell me how you made the payment..:)

Rati December 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Hi Sareena,

There are no customs if you buy from cherry culture. NYX products are def cheaper as compared to what you get in India. I paid through credit cared. You may read my experience here : http://makeupandbeauty.com/nyx-cherry-culture-shopping-experience/
