All Cosmetics Wholesale Haul!

I finally got my package all the way from America today! I was so excited, I ripped it open right away. One thing I wished I’d noticed while shopping on the website was that all these items are (new) testers – obviously, I knew they weren’t going to be the full retail item, but I didn’t really register it properly. It’s probably my fault, but it wasn’t abundantly clear on the site.

I only mention this because the first item that I bought – a Pixi blush/highlighter – is actually supposed to come with a brush in the bottom, and there wasn’t one with it. The compact is quite chunky, and at first I thought yay, it’s got a lot of product! But no, most of the space is given to the brush drawer underneath, which in my case was empty. I know, I know, I shouldn’t complain, it was extremely cheap! But I was a little disappointed, as this is a retail product – it’s not tester size or anything, it’s as you’d buy it in a shop, minus the brush. Sorry for the dark picture, but this actually captures the real colour of the blush most accurately of all the photos I took! Anyway, here it is:

I got two lipsticks, a Lancome Color Design one in the shade B-List, and a Michael Todd one in Salmon. I managed to squash the top of my Michael Todd lipstick with the inside of the lid – I don’t know how, I’ve never ruined a lipstick like that before! I’m quite upset! Though, you know, first world problems. I’ve swatched the two colours here on my hand, with and without flash:

With the flash, "Salmon" (on the right) has come out WAY more pink - in real life, it's very orange/gold!

Next, staying with the lip products, I got a cute little tin with three shades of lipgloss – Pop Beauty’s Mini Ribbon Gloss in Daisy Glow. I didn’t swatch because they’re so sheer, they wouldn’t show up:

I also picked up a rather posh dual concealer by Dr. Denese New York. I didn’t swatch this, obviously – it’s a pretty good colour match so might be a bit invisible in a photo! Here’s the pretty shiny packaging though:

Finally, I got a free-gift-sized Lancome eye palette. The four shades (in order of paleness, as swatched) are: Daylight (a matte pure white), Gaze (a shimmery pale gold/beige), Colour du Jour (a metallic bronze) and Lezard (a matte dark brown, with gold sparkles through it):

  

I apologise for the flashed-up photo! You can’t really see the gold colour of the second-lightest shade – however, it comes out quite accurately on the swatch.

Yay! I’ve tried out some of these, but I’ll review them as I go along or this post will be ridiculously long! I love the lipsticks though; I think my favourite thing of all these is the Lancome one in B-List. It’s creamy, and a beautiful colour.

  1. wow the lancome palette looks pretty! do show how you’ll wear it 🙂

  2. Hmm I’m so hesitant of ordering off All Cosmetics Wholesale – I’m even more wary now! What do you think, was it all worth it, despite it not being all completely new and packaged?

    • I think it is still worth it, given the prices, but you just have to keep in mind that you won’t be getting the exact product that you might if you bought it in a shop! Everything is new in that it hasn’t been used or opened, it’s just not necessarily full size or whatever. It’s up to you really, the prices are still very good so it might be worth it if you really want something! 🙂
