Beautyjoint.com Review

Beautyjoint.com Review

Looking for American makeup online but can't find one with decent shipping costs? I recently placed a trial order with beauty joint just to test out how good they were with prices, shipping, postage, range etc. I only got a few things, but I can confidently say that I am super pleased with my order!
Read more for my full review, so you can see if you'd like to buy from them too :)

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in 718 Maroon - $4.29

A really nice dark wine shade, slightly more red than the lipstick. Can't wait to try it out!

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Very Berry - $4.30

Another dark berry lipstick, I love dark shades, and I read heaps of great reviews on this so I'm excited to try it. Heaaaps cheap and Lauren Curtis loves NYX so I have a lot of faith in this.

NYC Smooth Skin Matte Bronzing Powder in Sunny - $3.76

Been searching for a good drugstore matte bronzer for aaaages, I was going to buy the NYX one but this is so so so much cheaper so I thought I'd try this first. Hoola (by Benefit) is what my heart really wants, but I can't fork out the cash for it just yet. Again, Lauren Curtis has used this quite a bit so hopefully it works well on me!

NYX Powder Blush in Desert Rose - $5.38

The colour in the photo isn't exactly like it is in real life, it's way less coral and is actually a dusty rose pink. Click on the link and the website shows a more true to life colour. Heard great things about NYX blushes from my fave, Lauren Curtis, and also just the beauty world in general!

My order total (including shipping): AUD $25.46 
For four items!

- $16.48 for all the items
- $6.85 for shipping

Why I Love Beautyjoint

  • Prices 
    • Prices are incredibly cheap! They don't double up their prices like most Australian beauty sites 
    • USA prices - but without the heartbreaking shipping costs 
  • Range 
    • They have an amazing range
    • They sell most colours of things so it's not like they're cheap but you can't get the shade you want 
    • They sell 
      • NYX
      • NYC

  • Shipping 
    • SHIPPING IS RIDICULOUS. Usually shipping from the USA will cost us like, an arm, a leg and my heart 
    • Shipping is so so so incredibly reasonable! 
    • I paid $6.85 for international shipping ??? 
    • That is insane! Especially considering domestic postage for the smallest possible parcel is minimum $7.20 for just within Australia 
    • I honestly think the shipping cost is what I love most about the website 
  • Postage 
    • It came in 10 days, which is pretty fast for international shipping 
    • It was all nicely packaged and not damaged 
  • Real Authentic Products 
    • All the products are real, so you don't have to worry! 
Overall, I am so incredibly happy with their service and prices and I will absolutely be purchasing from them again!

Hope this helped if you are looking for American products online without a shocking shipping cost! I most definitely recommend them and give them a million gold stars, so go click here and check them out!!

Love always,
