It's haul time :) ACW haul

So a little while ago I placed an order for some makeup items on All Cosmetics Wholesale. I love this site! It has lots of great high-end makeup items for cheap and stocks a lot of discontinued items too.

A lot of the more popular products that appear on ACW can go out of stock really quickly so if you have your eye on something that you know is a popular product and you see it's in stock I would get it sooner rather than later or it could be snapped up.

ACW Haul...How gorgeous is the UD palette's packaging?? *in love*

So the first item I saw on there that I already own and wanted a back up of is Sin eyeshadow by Urban Decay. Sin is hands down my favourite eyeshadow, it instantly brightens up your eye and just makes your eyes look gorgeous with no effort. I already own it in my Naked palette and Ammo palette but both have huge dents in them so thought I'd pick up a back up. ACW Price: $9.99USD Urban Decay Price: $17USD

UD Vegan Palette, Sin eyeshadow, Sin primer potion.

I then saw the Urban Decay Vegan Palette and fell in love with the packaging! For $32.99USD it wasn't the best deal (UD price $34USD) but I really wanted to try the 24/7 liner and Sin primer potion that came with it. Urban Decay shadows are also my fave shadows so I thought a few more wouldn't hurt.

L-R: Minx, Urb, Gunmetal, Twice Baked, Smog & Half Baked.
L-R: UD Sin eyeshadow, 24/7 liner in Zero & Sin primer potion.

I then moved onto the MAC section and found 2 cult items that they actually had it stock so I snapped them up fast. The first is the 217 blending brush. I have heard so many great things about this brush and I don't own any MAC brushes so thought this would be a great start to my collection. ACW price: $21.99USD, MAC price: $22.50USD or $37AUD.

MAC lipstick Girl About Town,  MAC 217 Blending Brush, EL Sunlight Coral

The second item is a lipstick in Girl About Town. I've seen multiple bloggers using this lipstick namely Lilit from Makeup and Macaroons. I'm still not sure about how this looks on my lips, I think the colour might age me a bit but I'm still experimenting with it. This was also my first MAC lipstick and I have to say the texture (it's an amplified creme) is amazing and staying power is good too, will definitely be picking up some more soon! This was $13.99USD which is a bargain compared with the aussie price of $36AUD.

Sticking with lipsticks I also bought an Estee Lauder pure colour gloss stick in Sunlight Coral. I am in love with this colour and the formula of this lipstick, it is more like a very pigmented gloss that has great staying power. It doesn't feel like a lipstick at all but you still get the pigmentation of one. This was a bargain at only $10.99USD. Aussie price: $42AUD.

L-R: L'Oreal eyeliner, Girl About Town & Sunlight Coral.

Lastly I picked up two L'oreal products. First is the Voluminous mascara in black which was only $3.99USD and an eyeliner pencil in carbon black which was also $3.99USD. I've never tried Voluminous before and have heard good things so for 4 bucks I couldn't say no. The liner I bought as I was in need of a new black pencil liner (I totally forgot that I had already got the 24/7 liner lol)

L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, L'Oreal Pencil Perfect in Carbon Black

So altogether I ended up spending $97.93USD. Shipping was $22USD. I chose USPS Priority Mail and it took 16 days to arrive, which isn't too bad I suppose. I thought it was reasonable considering how much I was saving on the products themselves. It was packaged really well it a padded bag and then a box and each item was wrapped in bubble wrap. 



Have you ordered from this site before?? If so what'd you get? Also if you know of any other great sites you can get great deals on for high end makeup let me know please :)

No worries :) I love ACW too but it can get annoying when everything you click on is out of stock haha you have to trawl through a lot of pages to find the gems

Vintage Makeup said...

I love ACW too! Never ordered though, but want to in the future. Great goodies!

Hannah said...

Thanks :) I definitely recommend if there is something you like you really can't beat the prices they have especially here in Oz

Great haul post, I love reading those! I have been meaning to try ACW forever, I read many good things about them. Also agree, that UD palette is gorgeous.

Anything from other companies I get shipped in a flat rate box takes about 16 days too, so good to know ACW are about the same.
