Now you can get that lush, luminous and perfect look that your lips deserve without spending a fortune.

First Impression Collagen and Hyaluronic acid enhancerEnhance, Repair, Renew.

Chic Alert Shopping Tips

This section will be used to record and group together useful shopping tips.

  1. Be an Informed Shopper: If you shop online and are making a first time purchase at a particular store then it is recommended that you first check the store's terms and conditions, especially Shipping Rates and Shipping Terms and Conditions, as well as it's Returns and Exchange Policies. It's also always a good idea to check the store's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
  2. Make Sure the Store Will Ship to You: When shopping online you may find that a store doesn't ship to the country in which you live or if it does, it's quite expensive. So checking the store's Shipping Rates and Terms and Conditions is very important. For example, currently the online boutique eLUXURY does not ship to international destinations. Similarly, the leading fashion retailer Nordstrom, based in Seattle Washington does not send orders internationally. Gloss.com, Polo.com, Lancome.com and Victoria's Secret are other examples. So make sure you check Shipping details before you buy!
  3. Get Your Own Private US Address: Shopping in bigger markets like the US is great but if the store doesn't ship to your destination then in the absence of using a family member or friend there, you could look at using a Freight Forwarder (International Mail Forwarding service such as Shop the States). This is an excellent alternative for when ordering products that the store cannot ship to your destination and can also provide you with savings in terms of shipping, customs and duties. As well as the US this could be useful when shopping at stores in the UK and Europe
  4. Often Cheaper in Bigger Markets: Even with the added shipping costs and taxes, and the costs of using an International Mail Forwarding service, it can be a lot cheaper to buy certain goods in larger markets such as the US and UK. Often in these markets, the lower prices and discounts offered, especially for designer items can result in substantial savings. Just do your homework before you shop.
  5. Check Prices Carefully: Especially when buying large ticket items, as some designer items will be, make sure you shop around for the best price for the item that you're thinking of purchasing. Very often the price of an item will vary from store to store and from one country location to another, even for the same merchant! For example, a US merchant might have an item at one price on its US site and a different price on its International site!! Check before you place your order.
  6. Check Prices In Your Local Currency: Often the international shopper will see prices in different currencies (eg. USD, Euros). When thinking of purchasing an item, it's always a good idea where necessary to check its price in your local currency using a currnecy converter. You may also need to add a small amount as your bank may also charge you a currency conversion fee. Work out the price, including any shipping costs, taxes and fees and then convert this to your local currency to see if it's a good deal when compared to local prices for the item before placing your order.

Let me know if you have any tips.

Sales, Sales, Sales!


As stated in the header above, the Chic Alert is about all things chic! It's about the latest news on new fashion as well as on quality sales and designer bargains of chic and sophisticated fashion and lifestyle products. As well as sales, promos and special offers, the Chic Alert will also include GWP offers, gift vouchers and competitions. Being a fashionista the focus will be on fashion, health and beauty but heck, if there's something else really extraordinary and worth mentioning then it will be mentioned. Now some things to be aware of:

1. Don't you just get so mad when you hear about a great designer sale or a warehouse clearance 2 or 3 days after it has ended? Well now with the Chic Alert you will hear about such sales while they're still hot, hot, hot and without the need to continually re-visit this site? And, what's more, unlike other websites and alert services, with the Chic Alert you can get the hot news as soon as we publish it!!!! This means that instead of hearing about hot specials on a daily or weekly basis, you can hear within minutes of us publishing so you won't miss out. It's simple! Just use the Subscribe option on the sidebar to get the scoop on fashion news, sales and designer bargains delivered directly into your email's inbox while it's still hot, hot, hot! You'll be amongst the very first, ready to take advantage of the latest offers. This is particularly useful when for example, there is limited stock on sale (you know, the while stock lasts type of sales) or when the sale is only on for a limited time such as in the case of a daily or a weekend only sale. You don't want to be amongst those that hear about a great sale only after it has ended. By the same token, you don't want to hear about a great sale only to find that by the time you get on to it, they're out of stock of your size or particular fragrance fancy! Remember, it's usually first in, best dressed. So the first thing to do is register.

2. Please don't worry about your privacy as we will not give away, sell or do anything nasty with your email address or personal details. And yes, that's a no ifs and no buts promise!! However, if you want to maintain your anonymity, then during the registration process you register anonymously. However, I suggest that you don't, the reason being is that if you register anonymously then we will not be able to contact you about your registration or when delivering news to you outside of the posted sales and, perhaps more importantly to you is that you won't be able to enter into any competitions that we run as you will not be contactable should you be one of the lucky winners!

3. As well as reading about the sales and promotions, you can read comments made by others about them. It's really simple! Just select the Comments link at the end of the sale and any comments made by others will be displayed in a pop-up window. On this pop-up window you can also enter your own comments. This option allows you to share your experience and let others know what you thought about any given post. Was it a good sale? Did you pick up a bargain? Was your size in stock? Was there a good enough range? Was it crowded? Was it worth going to? We'd all love to hear your thoughts and we can all benefit by this sharing. The designers and retailers themselves might also pick up a hint or two about what us fashionistas thought about their sale and perhaps they might improve things on their next promotion!

4. There can be little doubt that today, because of the Internet, we all live in a global village and nowadays, from the very comfort of our homes we can shop just about anywhere in the world. So if you're living in Sydney, Australia you can shop the hottest women's clothing and lingerie at Frederick's of Hollywood or take advantage of a sale on the great selections at Macy's in California. So today we can all easily shop in Paris, London, L.A., New York or Sydney without having to stand in line in any queue! It really is all amazing. It's because of this that as well as the usual sales that we so often come across in the traditional fashion outlets, I intend to hunt out the best online boutique sales and promotions and report these to you. You can help on this too. If you walk past a store or come across an online boutique with a great promotion that you think we all might be interested in, then let the retailer know about the Chic Alert. It's easy as 1-2-3. They can use the Contact Us on the right-hand sidebar to tell us about their promotion or you yourself can use the Contact Us to let us know about the sale and we'll contact the retailer directly. If you are a designer or merchant, then talk to us about reviewing your line or new releases. We're always happy to promote exciting new lines.

5. There's another useful option at the bottom of each sale, called Email Post and you can use this to email the details of the post to any of your friends. The more friends we have the more interested retailers will be in having their sales listed here. It's all a numbers game!

6. Finally, if you wish to contact me for any reason or have a suggestion on how we can improve things here, then please let me know by using the Contact Us option. If you're an advertiser or retailer and wish to find out more on how you can participate then again please use the Contact Us option on the sidebar. I'd be happy to hear from you.

OK that's it for now. Cheers and happy shopping.....
