  • Taobao Haul! AGAIN!


    Again! I failed to stop myself from buying on Taobao again...

    This time I got lashes and other little stuff.

    I managed to get my friends to buy with me this time to get a big order so we can have free shipping.

    The lashes were neatly packed in a cardboard box, so they weren't squished and ruined from the transport.


    This is part of the stuff I ordered. I still have an other coming, but that is not makeup related.

    We got 14 boxes of lashes, of which 4 are mine. Each box contains 10 pairs of lashes. So, now I have 40 pairs. These will last me at least a year or so. The lashes are so cheap and the quality looks just as good as the ones I get in Hong Kong. The price is about 1/5 of Hong Kong's though.



    Just when I happily open up my package of lashes, my mom tells me about a news where China sells non-sterilized lashes and how they are covered with bacteria. So, she explains that is probably why I got the lashes at such a low price. Hmm....now I don't know what to do with these lashes.

    Also, there's a bottle of Orly's 3 in 1 topcoat that my friend asked me to help her get on Taobao. She is very brave. If it's a risk to buy lashes on Taobao from China, it's probably fatal to buy cosmetics that have direct contact with your skin from Taobao. I hope my friend's fingernails won't melt away after she applies that top coat .



    Chi.

      1. I get it from www.taobao.com.
        It's similar to eBay, but it's all in chinese. Some sellers there do free shipping. The down part is, you must know how to read chinese to operate the site.

        I think www.aliexpress.com is kind of like the English version of taobao. don't know if any of the sellers there do free shipping though.

    4. the eyelashes you bought are perfectly fine. They're cheap for the quality you get and i've personally used them before the same packaging and all but just bought it in HK. Def better than the blue box ones they usually sell in hk. haven't had any problems wearing them!

      1. I agree,
        I can't use it for as many time as my other lashes, but on the bright side this way I will get to try out more styles and I won't need to keep track of where my used lashes are as much :)
