This was what I got in my inbox today, and so I thought I'd share it with you all. I've known about E.L.F Cosmetics being in Australia but now they have officially launched their site! About time, don't cha think?! I've been waiting for E.L.F to be more readily available in Australia, especially because it is known for it's very low prices on quality items :) To my surprise, the items aren't $1 or $2 like they are in US. In fact, most of the items are $3.99... which is double the prices in the US!! Isn't that so unfair >=/ ? Things in Australia always seem to be overpriced anyway, compared to the US. $3.99 isn't overpriced compared to the drugstore items we have here, but I think the price can be better than that.
Anyway, don't get too excited about E.L.F being in Australia because the site doesn't actually have that much stuff yet :/ And I found out about their site being open about 2 weeks ago, yet the stock seems to be the same. Not feeling too keen about making a purchase just yet because the items that are available haven't really attracted me, but then again, you can't expect much from a newly opened online store. I'll wait until I see something I really like and then maybe I'll make a purchase. I don't want to splurge right now, especially because I'm still unemployed T__T
The free shipping and the free item deal going on kind of tempts me, but I have a feeling that it can get better than that, or just remain like that forever... since it's like that on the other E.L.F sites. I might as well wait until it becomes a little bit more popular and hopefully they'll have more items in stock so I can choose and spend more wisely =] That's why I've subscribed to their mailing list, so I can be updated with any deals, sales and whatnot!
So for any Australians, do let me know if you are going to be purchasing from E.L.F! Is the shipping really fast? Is $3.99 an item worth it, compared to US $1? I'm very curious, but not game enough to try just yet.
It's based in Victoria so your Melbournians will get the fastest shipping, no doubt!
I'll let you all know if I eventually make an E.L.F purchase ;) Please do the same too hehe
