Who doesn’t love a beauty bargain?. I’m obsessed with finding new products or even dupe products with cheap price tags that don’t skimp on quality. I recently bought a little selection from two sellers on Aliexspress which is a Korean selling site similar to ebay.
Disclosure- All products mentioned in todays post were not gifted to me or are press samples.
Before I show you the goods I want to just explain that there has been a lot of bad stigma around Aliexpress as it is known for selling fake versions of high end products such as Limecrime, Kat Von D beauty, Urban Decay ect. Please stay clear of these as although the packaging most of the time looks dead on, the ingrediants haven’t been safely tested and could cause allergic reactions or skin irritation!. The products I have bought are not fakes or dupes of anything and all ingrediants are printed on the labels.
This little beauty contains twelve eyeshadows, seven mattes and five shimmers. Look at that gorgeous colour pay off!. Even the mattes are highly pigmented and at £3.72 its such a steal. I cant wait to get creative with the darker shades.
These brushes are very similar to the Real Techniques eyeshadow tools. They are so soft and fluffy feeling on the eye lid, easy to blend and bristles didn’t fall out when I washed them. Priced at £2.76 for a set of six, giving you everything you need to create a stunning eye look.
Shades ‘616, 610, 607, 633, 611’.
Shades ‘602, 619, 622, 603, 621, 623’
These are my favourite out of the haul, I bought eleven out of twenty three shades to try out before I buy more. Application is a doddle, they glide on easy, aren’t sticky feeling and they dry down to a matte finish. As you can see from the swatches this product doesn’t lack in pigmentation. They are very hard wearing and didn’t fade or rub off, only when eating did it start to break up on the inner side of my mouth but was no issue as its easy to reapply. These cost a amazing 95p each and had a bulk price offer for every 10 you buy you get a further 5% off!.
Have you ever bought anything off Aliexpress? If so what was your experience?. Let me know in the comments below!
