Pagan Marie NZ is an online fashion & makeup store in New Zealand, they are based in Christchurch. I first heard about them via their facebook and later on one of my good friends told me about her shopping experience with this store and that she highly recommends it so I went and checked it out.
I guess I am not a fan of their clothing and accessories because they are just way out of my budget, but I am in love with their makeup products. Pagan Marie NZ sells both Lime Crime and The Balm Cosmetics. I have heard so much about The Balm Cosmetics but I have never tried or own any of their products, most of the online stores (both New Zealand and United States) sells them very expensive like in my opinion I don't think it's worth it.
Surprisinly The Balm Cosmetics is not that expensive on Pagan Marie NZ, so I went ahead with my first order. I bought The Balm Meet Matt(e) NUDE Pallette - $59.00NZD and Lime Crime Pallette D'Antoninette - $49.00NZD -
So I was very happy about my order, I went back and place my second order ;) I don't need them, oh *sigh* ~~ but I just had to... I bought the following: 3 x Lime Crime eyeliener, 2 in 6th Element and 1 in Citreuse - $25.00NZD each - 5 x Lime Crime lipsticks in Countessa Flourescent, Great Pink Planet, New York City Yellow, Chincilla and No She Didn't Blue - $27.00NZD each - 1 x The Balm Translucent Powder in Sexy Mama - $29.00NZD - and 1 x The Balm Blush/Shadow in Cabana Boy - $29.00NZD -
I love that Pagan Marie NZ packs their orders so well :") They came wrapped in bubble wraps and baby pink tissue wrapping paper.
Pagan Marie NZ also ships outside of New Zealand and they have this reward points system where you collect 1000 points and you will get a $100 voucher to spend in their store, every $1 spent earns you 1 reward point; That is one of the reasons I signed up to their site cause I know I will end up spending loads and loads on their sites hehhe ;)
- Fast overnight delivery
- A+++ customer service
- Being able to pay via internet banking
- Reasonable prices
- Incorrect picture display for products - As I mentioned earlier I am a total newbie of The Balm Cosmetics so when I purchase the Matt(e) Nude palette, on their website it shows the original Matt(e) palette instead. As a newbie I had no idea what the difference between the two palettes and what the colors looks like so I assume what I bought is the color that was shown on the website. When I received it, I was a bit disappointed because the color I wanted wasn't on my palette :(
Anyways, beside the teeny tiny cons mentioned above, I do really love this store. I am happy to give this store a ★★★★★ and I would highly recommend this store to anyone that's reading this post ^-^ Check out the store here.
