Fourth Ray Beauty is the skincare sister brand of ColourPop. But you probably already knew about that. The brand might not be as popular as its makeup counterpart, but it is still pretty a much a blogger favourite.
If you were thinking about ordering fro Fourth Ray Beauty, here is what you need to know.
Where can you buy Fourth Ray Beauty products?
Fourth Ray Beauty products are available on their main website. Yes, they have their own website which is different from ColourPop’s website. However, you can get a selection of their products on the actual ColourPop website. If you want to know how you can order from ColourPop in the UK, then you should read this article.
Fourth Ray Beauty Custom Taxes
If you decide to order from FourthRay Beauty, you no longer have to worry about paying huge fees or about your parcel getting lost from being handled by too many parties.
All you need to do in order to get your hands on Fourth Ray Beauty skincare is to go onto their website (or ColourPop’s), choose the products you want and then place the order. If you spend 50 USD then the delivery is free.
Furthermore, Fourth Ray Beauty calculates the VAT at checkout. So goodbye Royal Mail handling fees.
In case you never had to deal with customs, no RM fees means that your taxes will be significantly smaller. I was usually charged 11 GBP on handling fees alone and the % of the total parcel value on top. That is no the case when taxes are charged at checkout.
See one example here:
(So weird! I have a screenshot that looks exactly like this one in my ColourPop article. I managed to order from both brands and pay the exact same amount. In fact, I have several orders of this amount. That is so cool and strange at the same time, don’t you agree?)
Fourth Ray Beauty parcel delivery
Once you place the order, you will need to wait a few days until they process it. The order is usually dispatched within 5-7 days. I felt like my orders were delivered a tiny bit faster than the ColourPop ones.
Once the parcel ships, it takes another 5 days or so to get to the sorting centre in the UK and another 2 to be delivered.
The parcels get delivered by Yodel in the UK.
Overall, it should not take more than 2 weeks for your parcel to make its way to you from California.
How to deal with any potential issues?
In case there are any issues with your order, you should attempt to reach out to the brand as soon as you can.
One of the full-sized products that I purchased was a spray bottle – it was actually a face mist. While the cap stayed on (which let’s be honest, is the main concern with these type of bottles), the screw came loose and all the content spilled inside the box. Luckily, Fourth Ray Beauty packaging is sturdy and even though it got quite wet from the bottle, the outer box was in good shape. For this reason, I did not lose any of the products as the box did not break.
Once I noticed the spill, I quickly took a photo of the box together with the empty mist bottle and emailed it to customer service. Within 2 days, I received a reply and they sent me a replacement no questions asked. The replaced me reached me in around 11 days.
Hopefully I answered all your questions. However, if there is anything else you would like to know, then please get in touch with me or leave a comment below.
