iKateHouse: Mini Haul – First Impressions Quickie


Disclaimer: I bought these products with my own money, this is not a sponsored post.

Marissa, here! I wanted to do a quick first impressions on a website that I’ve purchased off just recently, called iKateHouse. I have to say, I’m super impressed! First off, their website is really easy to navigate and is appealing to the eyes with it’s green color scheme. Secondly, their prices are quite fair, that’s including shipping. Standard shipping is $3.95 with orders less than $39! But, if you purchase more than that, shipping would be free. Keep in mind, taxes varies based on where you live, so if you live in SoCal like myself, I’m sorry–lol. FYI, they do offer internationally shipping! A little bit more expensive, than if you live in the States, but unfortunately that’s expected. Thirdly, shipping is super quick!! I ordered on Tuesday and received my package on Friday. Granted, I paid a little extra, about $2, for expedited shipping. But, that’s because processing time can take up to 1-3 days and regular shipping takes up to 5-10 days. I was worried I wouldn’t get my order in time for a wedding I’m attending. Yes, another wedding, lol.


Packing peanuts!!!! How considerate!


My products came in pristine condition! I love their attention to detail!

These are the three products I bought. Two L.A. Girl Matte Pigment Glosses, in Secret and Backstage & one L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Pure Beige.

The best part of this site, is that they put so much detail into their packaging! Mine came in a standard packet lined with bubble wrap. They even sprayed perfume onto the packaging. Interesting touch, even though I don’t care for perfume. I have sensitive skin so fragrances are kind of a no-no for me. Anyway, the products were wrapped in bright green tissue paper; a strip of paper, embellished with a sticker–their logo, held everything together. After removing that, it was wrapped in more bubble wrap, surrounded by packing peanuts and a couple of their business cards were also included. I was absolutely floored by how much care was taken into consideration. Everything was in pristine condition, with the products’ original plastic still intact. What more, could I ask for?! Super happy with iKateHouse, I’m glad I gave them a chance. I hope if you try them out, they treat you just as well!
