India readers can order Sephora USA brands

For readers in India who want to order makeup brands that are unavailable here, I have some good news.
You must have seen me share my haul posts from Order Makeup UK. This is a venture begun by my beauty-bestie Shivani in order to bring brands from Sephora and Ulta to India. In December, the group had closed down, but they are reopening and are taking new orders from this moment!
OMUK - the name belies what they do - lets you order any brand or product sold in Sephora USA, or Ulta - the brand list includes OCC, Tarte, Benefit, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Burt's Bees, Bumble and Bumble, NARS, Smashbox, Lorac, Philosophy, Hourglass, Kat von D, theBalm, Marc Jacobs, Bare Minerals, Stila, Buxom, GlamGlow, Ardency Inn and a lot more brands stocked in Sephora USA (check out www.sephora.com for the list of brands they stock), apart from US-only launches from usual suspects such as Chanel, Lancome and so on.
Read on to find out how to order. And, there is an exclusive early-bird offer below!
What you do to place an order is, make your wishlist and email ordermakeupuk@gmail.com and ask for a price quote. Prices are non-negotiable and based on supplier rates and are inclusive of customs charges and postage from the US to India. They'll let you know the total cost and you can confirm your order based on the prices sent to you. You must pay in three days after confirming your order - by bank transfer only. Once you confirm, the order cannot be cancelled.  
They are not taking orders for UK brands right now, so no Soap & Glory, Sleek or Dirty Works :(
You will need to pay tracked postage within India and this amount varies according to the weight of the order. If you wish, you will receive a video of your order being packed but there is no further liability or guarantee against damage or loss. I love not having to worry about customs duties and international postage hassles.
OMUK always sends you a generous amount of samples with your order. The samples are always amazing and what I love the most about my orders. In fact, I have discovered a few HG products from her samples, including GlamGlow YouthMud (reviewed here), Murad Mattifier (reviewed here) and so on. You can read about my previous orders here, here and here. Do go through them, if only to check out the eye candy and generous samples.
Also, the first person to email them and say Renu of My Beauty Junction sent you (and place an order, of course) will receive two extra deluxe samples along with your first completed purchase, so make sure you tell them who referred you when you ask for a quote! And the samples will be absolutely exclusive and not what is sent out with other orders.
They don't have a website yet, only a Facebook group here. However, all orders and queries need to be emailed, so best take that route.

    They don't have a site at the moment, since it is at a nascent stage, so it will all have to be via email.

    I have had to rely on hauling once a year while travelling abroad, or getting my sister to bring over some goodies when she comes down (she lives near two Sephoras!) but now Sephora has started shipping to the UK and a couple of other countries - hopefully they'll ship worldwide soon!
