Aliexpress Makeup Review – A set of 12 Lip Liner Pencils
I have shopped from aliexpress multiple times for jewelry. But, after watching a zillion youtube videos, even I wanted to try the aliexpress makeup. Made this order last year and this post was in the draft since ages. I was adamant about posting this today, so here you go. I want to keep this post brief as I wanted to share my experience with aliexpress.
Happened to buy some makeup products from aliexpress in 2016-2017 just to try and wanted to know if they are worth the money. I know that there are lots of cheap dupes available on aliexpress. Wanted to try a duper so I did buy a Kylie lip kit which was way too bad that I threw it the moment I swatched it.
Aliexpress Makeup – is it worth the try?

The biggest issue with aliexpress is that it takes forever to reach us. It took roughly a month to reach me.
So, this lip liner set was an impulse buy and I just wanted to try and no other reason. Aliexpress makeup is a total hit or miss. Some people tend to like them and most don’t. I am still on the fence about aliexpress makeup.
This particular lip liner set of 12 pencils come in a paper box and they were packed nicely in bubble wrap. There were no damages to the pencils – they were all already sharpened and were ready to use.
Me being me, I have sharpened them all again, cleaned with rubbing alcohol before applying them to my lips. Anyway, the pencils do have a nice finish to them. They are all matte and were set in wood. Sharpening them was easy too. The colors ranged from pinks, nudes, mauves, reds and vampy shades. Though the pencils had the design depicting the pencil shade on the bottom, the actual swatch didn’t match the shade. Some pencils lacked the pigmentation especially the dark colors. They are pretty to look at and for the price, I may say that it is a total steal.
Overall, they are just ok. I did like some of them but they do not come with expiry dates.
