WISH Haul + BONUS Mini Photo shoot With Baby

This post does not contain any affiliate links.

Exciting news! I just received all of my orders from wish and I wanted to share my little haul for those who are wondering what’s the deal with this wish app!

Trust me, I was skeptical at first too. For those who don’t know, wish is a mobile shopping app with over a million items at very discounted prices. Whatever it is that you’re looking for, its probably available there on the wish app.

Wish connects shoppers directly to the manufacturers so there is no “middle man.” This is why the products are so affordable. Some products are listed as FREE! But you just have to pay for shipping. The manufacturers are able to mass produce products using low cost materials without having to pay the fees of owning a physical store. From my experience, all the products that I have ordered arrived from China.

Wish claims that despite the low prices, the quality of these products are very high. And with tons of reviews, pictures, and videos from actual shoppers, it almost sounds too good too be true.

For example, when I was writing my Magnetic Eyeliner and Lashes Review, I came across the exact same product that I originally paid $30 for, and it’s available on wish for only $9!

So I decided to order a few goodies to found out what the wish hype was all about.

This is my honest review of wish and their products.

Geneva Watch

When I first downloaded the wish app, i was prompted with this Geneva watch for free as a “welcome gift.” All I had to pay was $1.31 for shipping. I ordered it in the colour gold, and to my surprise, it arrived in the colour black instead (refer to images above). Firstly, this was not the color that I ordered. Secondly, the quality wasn’t great. Well, it’s as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for!

Crystal Key Chains

I came across these cute crystal key chains and wanted to give them a try. I also found a glow in the dark version so I ordered that too. I got two regular key chains in “Green” and “Pink Quartz” both for “free” but I had to pay for shipping which was $3 each. The glow in the dark crystal just came in the one colour and style and it was on sale for $1 and I had to pay $2 for shipping.

This photo above is what I received in the mail and I was very impressed. They were beautiful and the glow in the dark stone really did glow. I think the glow in the dark stone key chain is a great idea for when you ever have to find your keys in the dark for some reason!

Pac-man Heat Sensitive Mug

My hubby and his son, Rowan were addicted to this Pac-man game we have at home so I thought this would be the perfect gift for Rowan. I got this mug for $8 and shipping was $7 (total of $15). This mug is also available on Amazon for $18.20 so we save a couple of bucks ordering it off of wish. Find it here on Amazon: PAC-Man Heat Change Mug.

As you can see in the photo above, the mug works exactly as described and Rowan loves it! Pacman and his little ghosts appeared almost right away when I poured the hot water. The mug definitely had a faint chemical smell so make sure to give it a couple of washes before use!

Rotating Ring Accessory for Phones

I ordered two mobile phone accessories in the images above. The one on the left has a mini mirror and came in rose gold. It was “free” but I paid $2 for shipping. The other phone accessory in the image on the right was also “free” but shipping was $3. The one on the right came in rose gold and has lots of rhinestones.

I was very disappointed in these two items from wish. As you can see, the mirror on the phone ring accessory was so scratched, you couldn’t even see your reflection (refer to image above). The one with the rhinestones also had a few scratches if you looked very closely. And the quality of these two phone accessory rings were very poor. Again, “You get what you pay for.

Double Sided Baby Bibs

Wish has some pretty cute baby stuff such as these reversible cute bibs! When I first ordered them, I was expecting 2 bibs per order because of the images above! I guess I didn’t read the fine print… Anyway despite that, these bibs were super cute and I’m very content with the quality. I got the first one (left image above) in the style “H218” for “free” and paid $4 for shipping. I got the other bib (right image above) in the style “H255” and only paid for shipping as well.

Lace Bow Baby Romper

I was a little skeptical ordering baby clothes from wish but the reviews were too darn good to pass and I’m so glad I ordered them! I got this lace bow romper in the shade blue. and in the size 6-12 month which was a bit big on my baby who is 8 months old. I purchased it for $5 plus $5 for shipping. My only issue with this romper is that the lace on the shoulder area looks like it could come apart at the slightest tug! But other than that, I think this romper is super cute.

Summer Flamingo Baby Romper

This is another cute baby romper in white with little flamingos all around and the cutest ruffle bottom! This was in the size 6-12 months which fit my baby perfectly. I paid $6 plus $6 shipping. No complaints here. This romper was just as described and pictured, and it’s so darn cute on my baby!

Summer Cactus Baby Romper

Here is another cute romper with little red flowers, cacti and a ruffled backside. I got this one for $6 plus $5 shipping. It’s in the size 6-12 months and fits my baby girl perfectly. I love these rompers!

Lace Baby Romper

Here is another cute romper that I ordered in pink as shown in the image below. It was $4 plus $4 shipping. I got it in the size 6-12 months and it fit my baby very nicely. No complaints with this romper!

Watermelon Romper

This one is a watermelon printed romper that comes with a matching head band. I ordered it in a bigger size (12-18 months) so that it would fit my baby for next summer. It was $4 plus $5 shipping. The reviews were great and the quality of this romper was very good. I can’t wait to try this romper next summer!

Floral Two Piece Baby Outfit

This two piece features a blue floral print. It’s in the size 12-18 months and was $5 plus $4 shipping. I ordered it in a bigger size so my baby could wear it next summer. This romper came just as pictured and described.

Yellow Floral Vest & Tutu Shorts

This two piece baby outfit is very cute! I got this for $5 plus $5 shipping. They come in 3 different colours. I got this outfit in the size 6-12 months but the top piece was too big for my baby. The bottom ruffled piece fit well though.

Floral Summer Baby Bodysuit

This green summer body suit was on sale when I ordered it. It was $5 plus $5 for shipping. I got it in the size 6-12 months but was still too big for my 8 month old. The quality was good and the body suit itself was very cute! I hope my baby can still fit into it next summer.

Lilac Back-Cross Baby Romper

This is one of my favourite baby rompers from wish and I highly recommend it! I got this cute piece in purple for $5 plus $5 shipping. The ties go over the shoulder and cross in the back.

That’s it for my wish haul!

Overall, ordering from wish wasn’t so bad at all. The baby clothes were great, just be weary of the sizing. And when you come across a good deal on wish and your thinking about ordering it, remember the saying:

“You get what you pay for!”

BONUS: MINI BABY PHOTO SHOOT

I’ll end this post with a mini photoshoot of baby Ayanna wearing the Lilac Back-cross Romper! Thanks for reading!

Magnetic Eyeliner and Lashes Review

Hello loves, I was skipping through instagram the other day and came across an ad for MAGNETIC EYELINER and LASHES. I know, I’m a little late in the game but I was still intrigued.

I heard about these magnetic lashes before like from ARDELL. The ARDELL lashes are the ones where there are two lashes for each eye. So you apply the first lash above your natural lashes and then the second pair of lashes below your natural ones. Then the magnets should clamp the two lashes together over your natural lashes. I’ve seen a lot of reviews on these types of magnetic lashes and the majority find them extremely hard to apply and keep on…

But the magnetic lashes that I came across on instagram included a magnetic eyeliner and that’s what the magnets on the lashes attach to. This was different and promising so I had to give them a try! Plus, customer service seemed so good because in the comments, they always replied to any questions people had. So I thought, it can’t be that bad, right?

I ordered my pair from the website that I found on instagram, Thebeautynovaa (refer to image below). I paid $28.95 CDN for the NovaLashes – Magnetic Lash Kit in the style ‘Classy Lash’ and I didn’t have to pay for shipping.

I ordered them on July 31st and they finally arrived in the mail about 2 weeks later from somewhere in China. To be honest, I had very low expectations for these lashes right when I ordered them online 2 weeks ago. That was clue number 1…

Clue number 2 was that the package said “False Eyelashes in Diamond D“… I’m pretty sure I ordered the NovaLashes – Magnetic lash kit in the style Classy lash but ok…

I wanted to make sure that this was actually what I had ordered so I went to the website and looked at the photos people had posted in their reviews. The package and its contents were exactly what other customers had received so I guess this must be the right package.

I ordered the ‘Classy Lashes‘ because I wanted something a bit more natural to wear everyday. These lashes were pretty dramatic! They were however nice and soft but not for everyday wear like I had hoped.

You can see the magnets attached to the lash line in the above image. There’s about 5 little magnets on each lash so if you needed to trim them, you might be in a bit of trouble…

The eyeliner applicator had a thick brush which I wasn’t a fan of. Plus, it had a slight smell to it. There is also the issue of having those magnetic particles so close to your delicate eyes but customer service at thebeautynovaa kept reassuring everyone that the amount of magnetic particles in the eyeliner is so small, it shouldn’t affect the eye at all.

I really wanted these to work because I’m terrible at applying falsies with the glue. Plus, this would save so much time getting ready! I just wish I had gotten lashes that were a bit more natural…

Anyway, I put on some make up and threw on those lashes! Here are the results…

So firstly, you need to make sure the eyeliner is dry before trying to attach your lashes to them. When I applied the lashes, it took a little bit of moving them around to finally magnetize the liner and lashes together.

Yes, they do stick to the liner! But do they hold on well? In my case, no. With just a light tug, they come right off…

You can also see when I close my eyes, you can see that some ends of the lashes aren’t fully magnetized to the eyeliner on my eyelid.

I’ve seen reviews of these lashes passing the “wind test” and apparently, reviewers are saying they stay on quite well throughout the day! But I just can’t trust them myself!

I couldn’t imagine going out and having a lash fall off in public! That would be a nightmare.

Oh, and clue number 3… I was on the wish app the other day and guess what I found – the exact same eyeliner and eyelash kit for only $9.00!

So, there you go my friends! I paid almost $30.00 for this exact lash kit that is available on wish for only $9.00. Of course add on a few dollars for shipping, but still!

Here is a quick overview of the pros and cons of these magnetic lashes:

CONS:

  • very dramatic lashes (not for everyday wear, and these were apparently the least dramatic ones)
  • slight smell to the eyeliner
  • lashes easily comes off with a very light tug
  • very thick eyeliner applicator brush

PROS:

  • soft, feathery feel of the eyelashes
  • cute case to store your lashes for reuse
  • reusable if taken care of properly
  • inexpensive if you know where to look!

In conclusion, I wasn’t happy with this product. I really wanted them to work but I just can’t trust them outside in the wind and what not.

That’s it for this review! Thanks for reading everyone. If you have any experiences with these exact lashes or if you know of better ones that I should check out, please leave me a comment below!
