I purchased a few things off AliExpress…

pleased Groundhog Day! I believe it’s going to be an early spring this year!

Out of sheer curiosity, I put orders for some makeup accessories off AliExpress:

This expense me only $13.97 for all 7 brushes! (all costs are in Canadian dollars)  I’ve been wanting to try the genuine methods strong Metals brushes for a while now, however at $35 for just the flat Contour brush, I couldn’t validate the purchase.  It would have expense me $205 before taxes for all 7 brushes from the strong Metals collection. I mean, aren’t RT brushes meant to be a less expensive alternative?

I heard about this bit egg contraption to assist with clean cleaning from Christy over at Glam Necessities:

At $3.42, it was a bit much more expensive than some other listings for this exact same product however this was the from the exact same seller as the RT brushes, so for benefit sake, I just purchased it from that listing.

And would you look at this!

This only expense $1.56!!!  It’s certainly similar to the MAC Oval 6 Brush… when I get it I’ll do a side-by-side comparison.

A couple of other dupe products I got to test out:

Real methods miracle skin tone Sponge for $0.70, instead of $10 that I paid for the one I bought recently.

Nars Kabuki Ita clean – it’s so shameful this clean retails for $67, as well as it’s made in China.  Let’s see exactly how this $2.74 version compares!

Og til slutt:

This was the primary reason I went on AliExpress to begin with – I desired much more of the nail swatching spoons I had purchased off eBay before. They’re about 20% less expensive on AliExpress for the exact same thing.  I purchased 12 sets of this so I was able to get the bulk pricing also ($2.44 per 32pc set).  This product did fee a shipping charge of $6.57 because of the quantity I was ordering (I evaluated the check-out page – if I’d stayed under 4 sets, then shipping would have been free.  If I wished to game the system, I might have purchased 3 separate orders of 4 sets however for a few bucks I ain’t got no time for that! )

AliExpress is the company to consumer side of Alibaba (Ablibaba is much more B2B, selling in bulk) – the buying experience is just like eBay however without the bidding, whatever is just “Buy It Now”.  I understand people who have purchased off AliExpress with great results.  They bought garments as well as mobile accessories though… so I’m hoping these makeup accessories are decent. I purchased these on January 30th as well as shipping time is quoted to be anywhere from 15 to 60 days.  Although, I didn’t truly plan my purchases correctly since it’s coming as much as Chinese new Years, which implies many Chinese companies are closed for the next 2 weeks.

I would caution against purchasing any type of actual makeup products from AliExpress as they’re all understood to be fakes. metropolitan Decay, MAC, Lorac do NOT manufacture makeup products in China – it makes absolutely no sense that Chinese factories would have these “excess” products to sell.  Even purchasing no-name makeup from China is a bit risky – just who understands what components are in them?  The products aren’t regulated like purchasing from a reliable source / brand.  However, the brushes I purchased are produced in China, so it’s a tad more likely that these are from the actual factories.  So now, we wait as well as see…

Have you purchased anything off AliExpress before?
