Cherry Culture is No More

''Launched in September 2006, Cherry Culture is a "must shop" place for makeup lovers in the world. Cherry Culture is a place where makeup lovers can unleash their inner beauty without sacrificing their budget.'' (Cherry Culture)

Yeah. Right. Well, don't fear - Cherry Culture online shop isn't closing. But it might as well. The online store that advertises their low prices has raised their shipping costs. OK, I understand that.
But listen to this (for international customers):

* They used to have a flat rate shipping: if you purchased items for less than 29.99 USD (I think, correct me if I'm wrong) then you payed a little less than 10 USD for shipping and handling.

* Now you pay 9.27 USD for 1 (ONE) nail polish and prices go higher for every next item. With a store that sells polishes that are known to be cheap... that's a bit cocky. I mean, who would want to pay more for shipping than for polishes? And I'm talking about the cheapest shipping option - USPS 1st Class.

I know, I know... Trans Design also has shipping this high... But they sell GREAT nail polish for very low prices: China Glaze, OPI, Orly, Color Club... they can get away with it. And I'm sure they don't screw up their orders as often as Cherry Culture does.
I removed CC online store from my list of stores. I will buy there NO MORE!

  1. Yeah, that's really bullshit that they do that. Who pays nine dollar shipping for a two dollar cheapie polish? That's disrespectful to the customer

  2. I agree with you. No more shopping on Cherry! :( I will rather spend my money on Transdesign and get better quality polishes.

  3. I got my order in 2 (TWO!) months after I placed my order last year. How "cool" is that? The worst thing - I don't like anything I ordered (worth 50 USD!). :( So, no more CC for me! :)

  5. Yes maam, I do agree with you. They have polishes on the site that are cheaper if you buy them at a store....LA Girl, Arissa, Kleancolor, Art deco, Sinful.....

    I don't like buying from them anyways because they take too long to ship it out! :)

  7. When did the shipping change? I did my first CC order a couple of months ago and the shipping was around $15 for 6 polishes (more than the polishes cost). The box they used was uneccessarily large.

  8. I also made ONE order at their online shop, when shipping was acceptable.
    The increase of the shipping is the reason why I'll never made an order again ! Now, it's clearly stealing !

  9. its a shame they've raised their shipping. i noticed it the last few times i went to buy stuff from there! i definitely dont buy stuff from there as much as i used to.

  10. I think a lot of people have mistaken TransDesign for using the same shipping system as Cherry Culture now do. TransDesign offer to ship our items using flat rate box which cost $18 only and 9 bottles could fit in one bottle. I don't know if u know this already but i hope this info helps a bit.

  11. Cherry Culture has been off my speed dial for a while...they used to have free shipping promos a few times a year, but they haven't done that in a long time. And now this! Sayonara CC.

  13. I agree with you Saša. Yet I ordered 12 polishes from them last week... I HAD to get some of those NYX Girls polishes. I know, I suck. But it kinda made it worthwhile to me once I decided I should only add stuff until the shipping was the same as TD's small flat rate box cost, and by then I had 12 polishes, mostly due to final sales and a B2G1 deal. However, I too do remember the times when I could order 5 or 10 polishes and the shipping was actually beyond decent. Since I first noticed they had increased the cost so severly, I haven't ordered until now, even though I have filled my cart probably 3-4 times without completing my order. NO, it is NOT reasonable to pay 14 dollars in shipping if you order 4 discount polishes! :( Idiots, they'll lose soooo many customers!

  14. Am I glad I didn't order from them or what! I was about to. Definitely won't buy from them then, especially if they're slower than 8ty8 beauty on shipping! Transdesign's shipping is so expensive too, why are they trying to rip off the people that keep them in business! There won't be a shortage of us anytime soon.

  15. For the quality of their product they should absolutely lower their shipping not raise it!?!
