Online Shopping Experience with Blanc to Noir- A new International Destination for NYX Lovers

Hello Beauties,

I know I haven't been posting for a while now! My apologies! Though I was down with Flu, honestly it was the laziness & lack of motivation(Yeah my husband motives me all the time) to write,  that kept me away!
So let's get started with a new post!

What do you do when you dream about a particular cosmetic brand & then one fine day me( the lazybones !!!) wakes up &  after slugging all day on the couch decides to check her email & find an email which says she could try some products from the same brand she was dreaming all the time, I know, I know  Jump out of Joy! I did the same thing when I got to know I had a chance to try the NYX cosmetics.

Many thanks to the people at the Online store Blanc to Noir for the wonderful opportunity to write about their store.

About Blanc to Noir:  Blanc to Noir means it’s from white to black. Blanc to Noir - was built by SK2P Inc. in response to customers' desires to shop at a destination dedicated to beauty and fashion accessories. Initially this was just online shop for NYX cosmetics but later they have expanded their business & are now selling branded Jeans, hand bangs & jewellery.

My Shopping Experience: It was a superb experience & you would know why by reading the following important points.

Layout , Design & Navigation:  The website has a simple layout & doesn't look too complicated to browse. The NYX stuff is well organised into categories & also helps us sort out the product to purchase depending upon the price or the product that we are looking for.

Speed: Initially I had issues browsing through the site & placing an order, when I contacted the Customer Care I got to know they had server issues but  now the website is redesigned & is at fast pace.

Products: They have a huge collection of NYX stuff & they keep adding new products every now & then. They have a separate section as "New Arrival".

Pricing & Discounts: Almost all the products are at a discounted price, some products are at 50% discount too. When I compare the price with Indian rates, the  NYX stuff in India is overpriced.

Customer Service: The customer service is awesome! Any mail sent to them they take pride in replying to it as soon as possible. If the customers have any issues placing the order on the website, a single mail to them takes care of everything.

Payment & Shipping:They accept credit cards such as Discover, Mastercard, Visa, Diners Club International, American Express, JCB.

How are the shipping rates determined
International shipping rates and delivery options are displayed in the Shopping Bag for all registered customers.
Shipping rates are based on:
- product weight
- type of packaging
- destination country
- carrier shipping method (USPS 1st class, priority, express mail, and UPS)
You can put items into the shopping bag and choose shipping method. You can check exact amount of shipping cost before you confirm your order.

I was told I would get the products in 2 weeks times & I did receive them within 2 weeks. Awesome isn't it!

Packaging: All the items were nicely bubbled wraped &  placed in between thermocol, none of the items were damaged.

Final Word: A great online site to shop for NYX, with each day a new item added & great discounts too! Except for the technical issues of the website while browsing for the products which got rectified soon, everything else made it a wonderful experience.The  dedicated team that works there provides excellent customer service.

The items that I have are:

1. NYX Eyeshadow base in skintone: 

2. NYX Glitter Cream Palette( Surreal)

3. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil( Shade- Gold)

4. NYX Matte Lipstick( Shade- Merlot)

5.  NYX Auto Pencil- ( Shade- Silver)

6. NYX Slim Eye Pencil( Shade-  Lavender Glitter)

Would be reviewing each of these soon!
