NYX Hauling from Cherry Culture to the UK

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 18 - 2009

Well, the general consensus from the bods paid to know about these things is that lightning really does strike twice.

With this in mind, after my previous experiences trying to get my hands on some NYX products from across the pond you can imagine my slight hesitation when I heard about a Cherry Culture 20% off code a few weeks ago.

I was obviously mainlining a dose of bravado when, with VISA in hand I started gaily adding items to my virtual basket until I was reminded of a). the import tax threshold and b). my overflowing makeup storage in the spare room.

Reluctantly, I pared down my overenthusiastic initial selection to items that (by this time) I’d decided I couldn’t physically live without.

The NYX prices on Cherry Culture aren’t the cheapest out there – but the 20% code sweetened the deal and I was happy that their stock list appeared to be current and up to date.

Fast forward 2 weeks later and my parcel landed on the doormat with a satisfying heavyweight thud, immediately reassuring me of a job haul well done.

Pulling apart the jiffy bag, I was pleased to see that all my items I’d ordered had been wrapped securely for the long journey across the Atlantic.  No casualties this time.

I ordered:

6 NYX Eyeshadows

1 NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

4 NYX Round Lipsticks

1 NYX Round Lipgloss

See! I told you I was restrained!  It actually barely qualifies for ‘haul’ status!

I’m happy to recommend Cherry Culture as a distributor of NYX products to the UK.  I haven’t had need to make use of their CS team yet, and for me, this is what makes or breaks a company – but I’m pleased with the service so far!

    I’ve ordered from them 4 times in total (but when I’ve been in NY) and have had no probs with delivery. They always put an extra lipgloss in my orders – not that I’m complaining but it’s just a bit odd that I always end up with a duplicate!

    There’s another U.S based site that sells NYX but I can’t remember what it is.

    Enjoy your haulage x

    Looking forward to seeing what you think of these. NYX are supposed to be coming UK bound at some point aren’t they?

    I can’t wait to see you review this haul!
    I’ve heard great things about NYX.
    Just out of interest what is the import threshold?
    And is it subject to Customs etc?

  6. @ndoodles – Thank You! New makeup makes me v. happy!

    @Yinka – Oi! Where’s my cherry lipgloss? You must be their favourite customer :P

    @Eliza – They’ already have distributors in the UK, although the mark up varies quite a lot, it’s much cheaper to just pay the p&p from the US, especially if you’re making a bigger order xx

    @Jo – Impatience is no good!! Have posted on the lippies xx

    @Kim – Import threshold is currently at £18 (that’s goods not shipping). If you spend over the £18 threshold, then any import duty will also include the cost of p&p in the total taxable value (does that make sense?)
