- Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $26US
- Smashbox Glow and Go set $29US
- Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call $22US

Total with discount: $101.15US
Plus Shipping Fee and and Service Fee: $47.84US
Total Cost: $148.99US
Total Cost Aud: $198.75AUD
What I got and what they cost in Australia;
- Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $37AUD
- Smashbox Glow and Go set (Unavailable in Aus) So $38.69AUD for the cost of US price
- Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call (unavailable in Aus) So $29.35AUD for the cost of US price
- Benefit Refined and Defined Brow Kit $59AUD
- Cinema Secrets brush cleaner $42AUD
Plus Shipping cost: $16.95
Final Total: $222.99
Savings by using ShopandBox: $24.24AUD
Yes the savings arent catastrophically great but any saving is a good saving and a lot of the time you can get amazing deals like the Sephora Favourites boxes you cant get in Australia. Its also a good idea to use Shipping services like ShopandBox when your favourite American companies have amazing specials or exclusive deals, because then you get the most for your money, another great feature from Shopandbox is the amount of samples you get given from your boxer; with my last order I got a whole mix of products including a colour-pop eyeshadow!?! One company to buy from in America is Mac Cosmetics, they have been known to have almost a 100% markup for most products and sometimes even more and it happens with a lot of the Australian Cosmetic stores. For example it’s 17 USD (22 AUD) for a Mac lippie in the US versus 36 AUD in Australia.
