I am not sure if I mentioned it already but I AM A SHOPAHOLIC! And I recently discovered a site called Shop Hush that sells discounted, inexpensive or dupe cosmetic products.
At first I was a little suspicious that this site wasn’t 100% legit, but after watching some YouTube reviews I happily moseyed on over to their checkout page with 10-20 items in my cart.
I’ve been in the market for new eyeshadows and palettes recently. Currently my go-to’s include two palettes from Morphe Brushes (the 12S and the 35N), a bunch of ColourPop super shock shadows (Bandit is my absolute fave color ever) and the Juvia’s Place Masquerade palette which I reviewed recently here on my blog.
I feel like many of the new palettes out there on the market have repetitive colors; berry shades, coppers, warm browns and the must haves nude and black. And I haven’t been in the mood to spend however many $$ on shadows that I know I am never or rarely going to use. But when I saw the palettes at Shop Hush were dupes of a lot of the newer palettes I felt like it might be worth it to try them out.
Lately I have also been really focused on skincare, and when I saw that Shop Hush has a huge selection of masks and cleansers (a lot of Korean beauty products as well) I was in seventh heaven!
Shop Hush Review
A little bit about Shop Hush–they offer free shipping with purchases over $25, and they stock drugstore brands as well as some unknown/international brands. To name a few: Milani, NYX, TonyMoly and LA Girl.
I made my order on the afternoon of March 16th and received my package via USPS on March 24th, so about a week later.
One thing I will say is that prices seem to fluctuate frequently on this site, but they’re always affordable. Also items sell out very quickly so if you see an item you want, snag it before everyone else does.
When I completed checkout, Shop Hush sent me the confirmation via Facebook Messenger which I thought was r e a l l y weird. Two or three days after I made my order, I received an email notifying me that I was refunded for about $4, but the email did not explain why. I wasn’t able to confirm that an item I ordered was out of stock until I actually received my package.
*Vita Genic Vitamin C Jelly Mask
Iced Pigment Powder: Glowing
Glitter Pencil Sharpeners (2)
Eyebrow Razors (2)
*this item was out of stock after I purchased it and was later refunded to me; the total below reflects the total after refund.
The damage? $68 buckeroons. That’s it you guys! Including shipping and taxes. And I didn’t even use a coupon code though there are some available. There were a lot more items I wanted to purchase but I decided to be semi-responsible with my splurging and test the waters with Shop Hush.
As you can see I got about 10 masks, mostly geared towards brightening and anti-aging since those are my most current pressing issues. I am starting a series called Mask Monday. Each Monday I will upload a review of a mask that I have personally tried. Let me know which of these masks you’re most curious to see. I also have the Peter Thomas Roth 24K anti-wrinkle mask I’ve been waiting to try out.
Of the makeup products that I ordered, the Irresistible palette is a dupe for the ABH Modern Renaissance. The shades are blendable and buildable but probably slightly less pigmented than it’s ABH twin. The pans may also be a bit smaller but as I don’t own the Modern Renaissance palette I can’t be sure.
The Venus palette is (obviously) a dupe for the Lime Crime Venus I palette, but where the palette claims to be all matte it does include 2 or 3 shimmers. This palette is super soft and very pigmented so be sure to use a light had with these. Both the palettes have a mirror inside and the lids seem to be magnetized. Overall, really impressive for $8 and $9 dollars.
For now I have only tried the palettes and one mask. Be sure to check back on Monday or just subscribe by email so you never miss any posts! Thanks for reading.
