Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with MIK! MIK claims to be New Zealand's Number 1 Online Cosmetics Store, so I was interested to see how those claims turn out!
This website is quite practical and easy to navigate. I found it easy to create a login, find items, add them to my cart, and check out. I do wish they had Paypal though, as that is generally how I get paid.
The prices on MIK are quite competitive, especially since they are already in New Zealand Dollars! The shipping is the most expensive part at $8 for the first kg. This makes this store better suited for bulk buying or buying heavier items to pad out the shipping price.
MIK The Face Shop Cushion Blusher - $7.70 + Shipping - $8.00 = $15.70
Roseroseshop The Face Shop Cushion Blusher - $5.50 + Shipping - $5.80 = $11.30
Cosmetic Love The Face Shop Cushion Blusher - $11.50
Shipping and packaging
I placed my order on the 13th of July, it was shipped on the 14th and arrived on the 20th. It was well wrapped in bubble wrap and in a sturdy box. No free samples which is usually expected with Korean Cosmetic stores, but I'm not really entitled to them I guess.
LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK - $20.75 & THE FACE SHOP LOVELY ME:EX PASTEL CUSHION BLUSHER - $7.70
Final ThoughtsI enjoyed my shopping experience with MIK, but it was honestly nothing spectacular. I would shop there if they had something on super sale since the prices are ok, but the shipping fee is a little too much for me.
