(Possibly even more if your card charges 3% forex).
Damn! Didn?t realise that when I ordered? I got nearly $100 USD bonus rewards points (from previous order with them) which I was able to use for this order ? but still even with that $100 USD reduction, I?m still paying more 😢

Did the previous JND WW84 have implanted hair for eyebrows and eyelashes and the same question goes for this JL WW?

Eyebrows no, eyelashes yes.

Maybe, maybe not. It’s relatively simple math.

Note however that depending on how an item has been classified by the seller on the custom forms (note that customs themselves can alter this if they disagree) you may or may not get hit by the 5% customs. I more often than not got levied by it when I used to make large purchases through Sideshow.

Formula: [Item Cost + Delivery + Customs (5% x Item Cost) + GST (10% x (Customs + Item Cost + Delivery)]/(covert to AUD) + various Custom Handling Fees (Was previously a fixed cost of $83 + $22, but my last one a couple years ago was a total of +110 AUD).

For example: {($3,200 + $380 + $160(5%x$3,200) + $374(10%x($3,200+$380+$160)} = $4,114 USD/0.65 = $6,329 + $110(estimate) = $6,439 AUD

Or without 5% duties: ($3,200 + $380)x1.1=$3,938USD/0.65 = $6,058 + $110(estimate) = $6,168 AUD.

But with your $100 in rewards it’ll be less, as that obviously reduces the Item Cost in the equation. Add a further 3%? if your card charges for FOREX.


It’ll be useful if you had a copy of your last customs forms for your last JND order to compare. I had a simple account with DHL and I was sometimes able to download them when I received my orders from Sideshow (and I never got hit by customs with my orders via another US based company ).
