Thanks to the latest technology and sorcery of the internet, people all around the world are now capable of shopping in the US without necessarily being in the US. Get me?
First of all, why shop in the US?
It's no surprise that almost all popular brands are either manufactured or sold in the US for the best prices. As an Australian, if I want to buy only one lipstick from MAC COSMETICS it will cost me no less than AUD $36. That same tube of lipstick on the US MACCOSMETICS website is only US$16 which is approximately AUD$20. I mean... you do the math.
Just over 4 years ago, I discovered a website www.shipito.com. It has saved my life since then. All latest collections in popular fashion and makeup brands would be in front of my door within a 2 week time period, paying nearly half the price.

So... how do they work?
Well, there are a few options with this service.
1. Order to your US address
The first option is having an address within the US. Shipito will offer you a US address located inside their warehouse. You order from any site you desire, ship it to your US address and as soon as it arrives, Shipito will notify you almost immediately. Or you can keep checking back at your 'Packages in Warehouse' page.
2. Assisted Purchase
It's pretty obvious, you contact your personal shopper in Shipito and inform them of what you want from where if you can't get in online or you want someone to shop your products personally. The choice is yours!
Just a disclaimer, I have used this shipping service myself a couple of times. Not once was I disappointed and I would 100% recommend it if you do want a few items that's not available domestically.
If you do use this service or any shipping/forwarding service, I will warn you to always add the insurance option for all packages especially those that cost you some money. The insurance will cost you a few extra dollars but believe me it's worth it as you can track exactly where your package is.
Not having insurance can risk your package getting lost in mail and it would be very difficult to get it back or get a refund. So please! Insurance!!!!
That’s the end of the post! Just a disclaimer, not everything I post and products I mention will work for you. I post whatever I personally know, tried and tested and I give my honest opinion. For any questions or inquires don’t forget to comment down below!
