*American Beauty Haul With Parcl

American Beauty Haul With Parcl

Hello people of the internet! Living in Ireland can be great but, you can't really get everything here. Aka... I can't shop at Sephora. I know, first world problems. Last month I got in contact with a company that can help me fix that problem. *Parcl is a worldwide shipping company that helps you buy things from shops that might not ship to your country. Places like: Sephora, Target, and Ulta! 



*Parcl was kind enough to give me $150 to spend on this post (not including shipping) and guys, I went to town! I spent hours browsing Sephora and Ulta trying to find things that I've only ever heard American beauty bloggers talk about. I somehow still ended up with a few things I could have bought here.. Go figure!


Before we get into the goods, this is how *Parcl works:


You start off by creating a request. This request just includes where you want your package has to be shipped from and where you want it to end up. Then you just add all of the items you want. They can all be from the same site or multiple different ones!You just need to add an estimated weight, link to the product, and the quantity. Once you add all of your items you submit your request. Then forwarders can make you an offer. the offer has the total price for the shipping and you can choose other services to add on. I added things like: product photos (just to make sure everything made it there okay), package consolidation (The products you order get sent to the forwarders house. Instead of getting a bunch of boxes they take all of the products and put them into one box for you), and insurance. 


The total for my shipping was $58.95 and the total for all of the add-ons was another $47.93. I also had to pay €40 for shipping. So things do add up pretty quickly. Just keep that in mind. Anyways, I think the service is fantastic. The forwarder I worked with was super nice and always kept me updated. I would gladly use this service again! 



Let's get to the haul!

American Beauty Haul With Parcl Nip+Fab Dragon's blood Fix Plumping Mask

You can get both of these in Ireland but I've been dying to try the Urban Decay Spray. Also, I just did a price check on the Nip+Fab mask and my god! It's expensive here. It'll set you back about €20 in boots and it was only $7.50 from target's website! Anyways!  I've been using both since I got the package and I'm honestly obsessed. Full reviews should be up on here soon!

I decided to get two of these Sephora selection boxes! I figured I could try some brands that I've never been able to get my hands on while still getting some of my favs! The lip box was $28 and the eye box was $42! They're fantastic value!

The lip products were from Target. Honestly, one of the things I miss the most about living in America has to be Target. When I started doing this post I knew I was going to have to grab a few bits from there. Oh, and a quick warning: That primer (I got it from Ulta) is literally the worst primer I've ever used! (Despite all of my research)

American Beauty Haul with Parcl Reese's Peanut butter eggs and peanut butter chips

The last few things aren't beauty related but if you're going to go on Target's website... You're going to end up in the home & food section. I grabbed the two most adorable mugs and some of my favorite treats! I had a whole bag of those Reese's eggs... They were so good! 


I think I might do full reviews for all of the products I picked up. Just in case some of you are headed to the states anytime soon and need some ideas for some beauty products to try! Which product would you like to see first?



* = These products were gifted to me in return for a review for Parcl. I was not paid and all opinions are my own!

  4. Sounds like a great service but so expensive! I guess if there's no other way to get the products though you gotta do what you gotta do!

  5. Ooh this sounds like a great idea, especially because I like buying things from Japan that never ship to the UK! This might prove handy in future...
