Hello a few questions today from me, you’re all probably sick of my questions haha ;p
Has anyone used the 88 palettes from ebay? are they pretty good?

and also does anyone have links to ebay sellers who sell authentic makeup you cant get in country towns and the normal shops like kmart?
I dont want to get fake benefit or anything, I want the real thing :D
I’ve found a shop for polishes like opi and orly and whatnot now I just need makeup

Yep I’ve tried them! They are ok but lots are shimmery colours and some are quite chalky. I prefer matte shades. They are a good buy if you are just starting out and need lots of colours to try but you can definately get better shadows elsewhere.

I’ve bought an authentic Chanel lipstick from seller kakale in the US before. They stock other high end brands like YSL too.

eBay is tricky for makeup. It’s not easy to find a reputable seller! So many fakes out there.

According to the girls on the Specktra forum you can buy authentic MAC from my-boo-kitty on eBay.

I recently found a seller called online_4_less who stock Stila, Too Faced, NARS and more. Items appear authentic but I really couldn’t say with 100% certainty. I haven’t ordered anything yet.

I love shopping straight from the Benefit website! They frequently offer you promo codes if you sign up to their mailing list. Sometimes they offer discounts and full size/deluxe sample freebies with your order.

Buying direct from Benefit is the best! I have gotten a free fullsize product each time I have ordered plus free shipping for orders over $125. Only downside is shipping time – around 4 weeks but the savings are worth it!

The longest I have waited was 2 weeks. The quickest was one week. Just depends on your area and how quick it goes out I guess as Anerica is a day behind and there postal service is 6 days a week.

I wouldn’t recommend buying Benefit makeup off ebay. There are many fakes out there (many listed super cheap $0.99) and you can find vidz on this on YouTube. Agree with PrettyPrincess and Stephie – buy directly from Benefit US. Prices are cheaper compared to Aust and you get free samples ;p

I have the 96 palette off ebay and it’s crap. I like vibrant colours and the colours barely show up on my eyes. I got an amazing one from Groove though, beautiful colours!

I’ve bought the 88 and the 120 palettes off ebay and they’re a hit or miss product… some shadows have literally NO colour payoff but some are amazing! I find the matte shades have little to no colour pay off but the shimmery or metallic ones have a lot.

me too.. I have the 88 matte, 88 warm/neutral and 88 shimmer.
I was pretty disappointed as I’d heard all these great things about them. I find the 88 matte and warm/neutral palette VERY difficult to work with. the shimmer is better but not that great.
it looks amazing when you swatch with your finger, but I find when I actually go to use it with a brush I can hardly pick up any colour at all.
I have tried them wet too, which does make them better but who wants to have to wash your eye brushes after every use because the eyeshadow gets stuck in the bristles and can’t simply be dusted out ____
also I find even with primer they wear off very fast.

I do have an 88 shimmer palette that I bought recently…it’s probably the same thing as I can’t see any specific maker/manufacturer. It’s pretty good, though, I have been getting some great looks with them.

I usually apply it over my eyeshadow primer (UDPP) and use a brush. I normally get really good pigmentation and they tend to last at least 10-12 hours without disappearing.

Buy BeneFit from their US site. Products are half the price that you pay over here and you get free shipping once you spend over $125 and you get to chose a few free samples.

It’s too risky buying BeneFit from Ebay – lots of fakes.

I only buy drug store makeup from ebay, not high end. High end I buy direct from the website or the store. I’m paranoid about getting a fake and having wasted my money.

I’ve bought some blushes from this seller. They seem pretty authentic to me but I don’t have anything to compare them to as I’ve only ever bought Mac foundation in store.

Hi girls so of course I have to do a purge of all my beauty products since my move to America is less than 2 weeks away. Sooooo I’m not taking a lot of my cosmetics most of which have not been used. I’m going to be posting “a mother of a lot sale” on ebay starting tomorrow (Friday).I’m only doing a 5 day sale. I won’t be selling the items separately as I don’t have time so I’m just doing one huge sale and the winner takes all. Email me privately at muraljewel@hotmail.com and I’ll tell you where to find me on ebay as BH doesn’t like us endorsing our stuff for sale. Here’s a list if you’re curious:

Never Used Items:
Nars (Laguna) still in package unused
Benefit (Hoola) still in package unused
MAC Pro Colour Palette Case still in package never used
Too faced (Lip Injection) still in package never used
Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights eyeshadows( Dusk) never used
MAC Satin Lipstick (Empowered) still in package never used
Kevin Murphy Color Bug (Purple) never used
Revlon Lipstick (Rum) sealed never used
Natio Lipliner (Scarlett) sealed never used
MAC Dazzleglass (Date Night) never used
MAC Dazzleglass (Money Hone) never used
Revlon Lipstick (Pearl) no seal but never used

Used:
Kevin Murphy Color Bug (Pink) used once
Nars Contour Stick (Malaysia) used twice. Never figured out how to contour my cheeks and gave up.
PurMineral Marble Cheek Powder (Pink) used once wasn’t my color
Too Faced Bronzing Powder (Sun Bunny) used about 4 or 5 times
Too Faced Makeup Palette one side called Naughty the other side called Nice. Naughty side never used. Nice side used about 4 or 5 times. The brushes that come with it haven’t been used.
Milkshake hair powder (Boysenberry Black) used about 3 or 4 times great for in between coloring.
Kerastase Balancing Shampoo used once. Got sucked into buying at a hair salon along with mask.
Kerastase Resistance Hair Mask used once. Got sucked into buying at hair salon along with shampoo.

Oh and a Parlux Hair Dryer, 38mm barrel VS Hair tong and Babybliss triple barrel tong.

By the way these are all authentic I’ve either bought the at Sephora, Mac counter or hair salon.

Cool I did not know you could buy benefit straight from the us site, awesome. eBay is Great for brands like revlon, maybeline ect bit once you get into the higher end brands than it can be dicey.

If you want a variety of higher end brands check out sephora/Nordstrom and use parcel forwarding services such as hop shop go or parcel it on.

FYI temptalia puts up weekly discount/ promo codes on her beauty blog for us sites http://www.temptalia.com/page/3
