Warning! Sephora Fees! (Oh and a Sephora Haul)


Hi Guys!

So I’ve had my eye on a few awesome looking products lately and decided to purchase a couple of bits from Sephora as a treat for my birthday. I’m really happy with what I got, but not so happy about the price…

  • Anastasia Beverley Hills Contour Kit – $40
  • Tarte Discover The amazon 3 Piece Kit – $34.50
  • Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Violet – $21
  • Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Coral – $21
  • Makeup Forever Happy Birthday Mini Kit – Free
  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Deep Matte Bronzer mini – Free
  • Caudiale Premier Cru The Cream sample – Free
  • Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Lotion sample – Free

Order total – £73.44

Shipping and Handling – £16.38

Taxes and Duties – £16.26

Total – £106.06

Now I’ve put all the prices on here for you because I want to make a point. I was so happy when I saw the The Too faced Melted Lipsticks at Sephora for the equivalent of £12.32, as they’re £19 in the UK. I felt like I was getting a great deal. Most things are cheaper in the US compared to the UK so I was a happy bunny! I understood there would be shipping and handling fees, but I didn’t realise there was also a taxes and duties charge until it was too late. I think I got a bit mixed up because it was a very similar price to the shipping, so I think I thought it was the same thing, if that makes sense! In the end my order came to over £100, with over £30 of it spent on fees, boo hoo! What’s done is done, and I am really happy with what I got, I just wanted to point this out as a warning when purchasing from Sephora, just beware and keep an eye on the charges!

I’ll be reviewing everything in the coming weeks!

I hope this post was helpful! xx

(Update – so apparently I’m a complete twit, I’ve just been told if I’d have spent £75 on my order, then my shipping would have only been £6! Oh well at least I know now!)

    I once bought a dress from Hot Topic and then got a letter saying it would cost another £30 in taxes and to go and pay to collect it. I let them return to sender and got a refund but that took 6 weeks. The dress was only $25!
