This is my first time buying from an independent e-store focusing on Asian brands, and the first based in the US. Most of my cosmetic purchases, specifically the Japanese and Korean purchases, are done through eBay, rarely Amazon.

Now I know people recommend them, but they didn't have much I wanted when I first got on their site and the mobile site bugged me. It wasn't a bad site but it was a little limited feeling. Their prices are lower than Sasa, a beloved staple for girls seeking Asian brands. Admittedly they have a smaller selection but its a great selection. Holika Holika, Lioele(I think they might have a partnership), FAIRYDROPS, Etude House, etc.

Now to my order and why I love the speed of it. I ordered Sunday night, after making an account Saturday night/Sunday morning. I used the coupon code I received for making my account and the mascara came down from $20 and some change to $15-something (with shipping!). I also picked a sample for my order; lots of good options! I chose the Lioele V-Line Waterdrop Sleeping Pack, something I've wanted to try when my skin is at its worse (meaning winter). On Monday I received an email that the order had shipped. Pretty & Cute says in their F.A.Q. that they ship out orders at the soonest possible time. It only took three days to arrive at my door in a little cardboard box packed full of peanuts. From Portland to Atlanta in just three days with the basic economy shipping.
Obviously, I'm happy! I really like P&C so far. I hope to order more! I do recommend them and I might join their affiliate program while still buying products ~ Something I want to try is Holika Holika's Peach Girl BB Cream.
