Shipping Colourpop to the UK via myMallBox


This post is so exciting to me oh my gosh. I can't believe I finally own frickin' Colourpop make up. To all you Americans this is probably no big deal but to me, this is life. Do you know how long I've waited to be able to have Colourpop shipped to the UK? Too long guys, too long. It's all thanks to myMallBox that I actually have some now. 

myMallBox are essentially the middle man between all the fabulous American products that we struggle to get our hands on over here in the UK, mainly because shipping costs a bomb and I ain't about that life. 


We'll get onto what I purchased in a little while as I'm sure you're all dying to know (just like I was dying to receive them). But first, I wanted to tell you exactly how myMallBox works for those of you who, like me, had never used a US shipping service before.

Step 1: Sign up to myMallBox (Click here to use my referral link)

Step 2: Receive your free US postal address which is located in the myMallBox warehouse

Step 3: Go wild and buy your goodies

Step 4: Don't forget to use your US address as the shipping address

Simple, right?

Then, the most exciting part for me, you will get an email once your parcel(s) arrive at the warehouse. You are then given the option for myMallBox to repackage your items to reduce shipping costs and possible customs charges. I definitely recommend doing this as I received no customs charges on my Colourpop order.

Shipping from myMallBox really isn't expensive at all either. They very kindly gifted me $30 shipping credit but considering my order only cost around $11 in postage (cheaper than Colourpop itself)  - I wouldn't hesitate in using them again in the future!


Now... Onto the exciting bit, what did I actually purchase? Three lipsticks, two eyeshadows and one highlighter to be exact.

Ultra Matte Lips ($6):
Lumiere 2
Midi
Clueless

Super Shock Shadows ($5):
Girly
DGAF

Super Shock Cheek ($8):
Wisp

I could have spent so much more but as I'm very cautious when it comes to customs (and was unemployed when I made this order) I had to restrain myself. Saying that though, I am very happy with my purchases - Ugh, they're so dreamy and pretty and everything you could ask for in a make up product.



I'm always down to do a review so just give me a shout if you'd like one on any of these products (or all of them, I'm not fussy!).

    1. As long as you don't buy a RIDIC amount, you shouldn't be charged customs through the US shipping services (that's from what I've seen and experienced anyway!). x

  4. I was hesitant about buying Colourpop for all the reasons you mentioned, but myMallbox sounds like it's answered my prayers! Off to do some online shopping...

  7. I love Colourpop and I'm still yet to order from them yet just simply because the packaging seems expensive but mymallbox seems like a great shipping option.

    1. As long as you don't buy lots, the shipping is dirt cheap through US shipping services! x

  8. I love Colourpop and luckily have had no issues ordering direct from the US (Customs charges are for £135 and over, sadly I haven't made that big an order yet lol) but I love the sound of these forward freighting companies as they solve so many issues around places that don't ship to the UK. I tried to do a Sephora haul using one a while back and it didn't work as they don't allow them but I think they ship to the UK now anyway. It's just good to read a first hand experience because I was a bit cautious to use one incase it didn't work. Mymailbox sounds ideal! x

    1. Yeah Sephora ship directly to the UK now, weird though... You still should have been able to order through a US service!

      I was cautious about using one too but they're fab. Better service than shipping directly through the brand to be honest. x

  9. Those eyeshadows are so pretty!! I´m literally doing the heart eyes emoji right now (don´t ask how)! Also the packaging of the lip glosses is gorgeous. simple but gorgeous. Guess who´s going to do a bit of shopping on the colourpop website now.

    1. Omg right?! The pigmentation of them is CRAAAZY. I'm obsessed with Colourpop packaging too - It's lush! x

  10. Thankfully ColourPop no longer needs third party for shipping as they sell internationally now! Which would make things much more simple!

    1. I'd still order through a US shipping service as I stated, it'll always work out cheaper. No way am I paying $25 for postage haha! x

    1. It took about a week to ship from Colourpop to the warehouse (Colourpop seem to have slooow shipping), then about 4/5 days from the warehouse to my house (and that was with the cheapest option)! x

  12. Ooh this sounds FAB! I will have to use this! x

  13. BE AWARE! My Mall Box is wasting your money by simply bining some items!  I just lost $50 because they thrown my items! I received parcel with missing purchases although got email confirmation that items were repacked and shipped out. I emailed them to get info that shipment regulations have changed so they thrown my items. Thay called bining my $50 as inconvenience! What a rude customer service!
